Baby in pram

Here is a card I made by request. I coloured in a Lili of the Valley stamp using copics, used some ribbon, lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some Noor Design dies. I then added some pearls, used some Spellbinder dies and Martha Stewart punches for this baby card.


Picking up the post

My first inspirational post as a design team member for the Hobby House! How exciting! This month the challenge is pretty much ‘whatever’ as long as a Hobby House pre-coloured topper has been used. It doesn’t even have to be a new creation! My creation, however, is new! And I’m quite happy with how it turned out 🙂 . You can find the challenge here.

The paper is from a Papermania pad, the doily from Dovecraft, the three different punches are all Martha Stewart, the sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley and the rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have used a few Hobby House products for this: the open roses in pink and beige, the adorable pre-coloured topper and the pearls.

Fairy smelling flower, and a craft show!

It started yesterday, but today suits me better, and it leaves time to go back at the weekend if I haven’t got time to see everything. I am really looking forward to seeing the talent and creations while soaking up as much inspiration as I can possibly manage! I look forward to seeing the Lili of the Valley stand specifically, as it was through their website I found out about it in the first place!

This is a good opportunity to post a card I made in the first half of January and completely forgot to post! It was a birthday card for my boss. It was the first card in a while I’d made with the fold on top, rather than on the side.
