Welcome to my card blog

Welcome to my card blog

I decided to split my cards out from my crafty writer blog to keep that aimed at my stitching and this one as a reminder of the cards that I’ve made and – where I can remember – how I made them.  Plus other people might find it useful.

I did make cards years ago, at the time I was taking a break from my cross stitching and needed something to do.  This time I’m still cross stitching as well as making the cards so I don’t make so many at the moment but the time I am spending I’m also learning new techniques, so much has changed.  I got back into the cardmaking through colouring, I wanted to colour and I loved the look you can get with alcohol markers.

This is my first card made with an image coloured with Copic markers.  The stamp is a digital one called Beary Sweet by Tiddly Inks.  It’s a lovely image and was great for practising what I had learnt from my Kit and Clowder online colouring course.

I used spellbinders dies to cut out and layer the image and I added a spray of mulberry flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

A crafter of many years, now using this blog to share my ongoing card making projects and tips for others to enjoy. As well as making cards I have many other creative hobbies, so can often found knitting shawls and socks, and spending hours on my cross stitch works in progress. I mainly stitch Heaven and Earth designs. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.
