Green As...


After I put together 10 samples for the Cards In The Mail class, I decided to use up the leftover 5.5cm strips to make some more cards. I ended up with 8 more!!!

Of course you'd need more green card, or thich Whisper White at least to do this, but It really is amazing how moany you can make from a sampler pack of Designerr Series paper.



 I can't include them as part of my cards in the mail, because you need the letter dies and more labels and see below, I've used some other dies and punches too, but there is nothing stopping anyone from pulling out other tools to make more cards.




I'd love you to choose my online shop to purchase from, and when you use the Host Code at check out, I will send you a gift, along with a handmade card. The items listed below were used in my projects above, and link to that item in my online shop.

Big Birthdays


Big birthdays - you know, those ones that end in '0' - require big cards. My youngest son just turned 30 and at this stage still lives at home with us. If it hadn't been for Covid-19, he might have bought a house and moved out but I guess we're just lucky!!!
I was a bit stuck for what to put on his card this year and did a repeat of A Good Man in watercolours. Also had some fun masking and incorporating By the Dock.

I've shared a video on my Facebook business page and on Youtube of how to mask and place the foreshore behind the subject, and some watercolouring. For the feminine version, I pulled Beautiful Moments from the shelf. Doesn't she look lovely staring out to sea?



Are you as happy as I am that we have alphabets and numbers back in our die range? I liked that the '30' fitted so nicely on the banner from the Tasteful Labels dies.

He and his lovely lady are nature lovers and took themselves off to the seaside for this special birthday. The ocean is often moodier in winter, and the windswept beaches are definitely deserted. When they mentioned that they'd been searching for dinosaur footprints at Inverloch and seeking out the migrating whales I wondered what I could have put together using Dino Days or Whale Done!!!
