Julie Nutting

 Please excuse the state of this card, it's been passed around at club for the last couple of weeks (I should have photographed it first)

It's a Julie Nutting stamp by Prima that has been 'dressed' in Tilda papers.
The sentiment stamps are by Personal Impressions

Apologies also for the state of this blog, photographs etc recently.
In the warmer months we try to get out walking as much as possible but this means my card making has to take a back seat.

One of our club projects

We used Sue Wilson dies on plain white card and then placed this on self-adhesive sheet, then completely covered in fine glitter/ Glamour Dust.

Sentiment die is by Crafters Companion and the butterfly dies are by Quickutz

The card I made for my husband for our recent wedding anniversary and yes the card front is completely warped (don't ask!)

It's 8 x 8 inches and I've used Altenew alpha stamps for the sentiment.
After I'd cut the papers I was originally going to use my husband helpfully told me he definitely wanted to see some sort of walking theme...

So Woodware walking boot stamp was used with Versamark and clear embossing powder for the background.

Thank You

I needed to make a really quick card to say 'thank you' for an unexpected gift.

I took a landscape card blank and chopped off most of the front, just leaving enough left to attach a tag by Craftwork Cards. I then lined the inside with some ombre paper, again by Craftwork Cards.

Sentiment is a Memory Box die (please ignore the wonky 'k')
The card still needed something adding but I couldn't think what, I didn't want it to look fussy as I know the recipients like clean styles. In the end I die-cut their house number using an old Sizzix alpha, and stuck it on the tag front.

By the time I'd finished the card my new Altenew stamps had arrived and I couldn't resist using them for the envelope (wonky 'e' to go with the wonky 'k'...)
