I can now share this card with you. It is a very special Congratulations card for my son and his girlfriend/now fiance (eek!) on their engagement.

It had to be a special card. (I do hope I pulled it off too). I inked up my new Art Gallery Bundle that had just arrived and I also used the Curvy Dies.

The flowers were stamped first with Balmy Blue with the “solid” image flower and then added the Night of Navy for the highlights with the smaller detailed stamp. To add some little highlights to the smaller flowers I used the Night of Navy ‘Light’ Stampin’ Blends to add some dots.

The “Congratulations” was embossed in Gold but it is hard to see the shine in the photo sadly. The Balmy Blue card was embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I think they liked the card. 🙂

The Art Gallery Bundle is now available in my store. It makes beautiful cards for so many different occasions.

See it in store now -> HERE.

Or you can contact me directly and I can help you order any of the products.

I was asked by a friend to make a Funky Engagement card.  Mmmm??  My first thought was Lemon Lime Twist.  That is a funky colour.  What else though??

As I thought about it I though the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits or the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits might work.  I did a little searching on Pinterest and found an idea there.  I changed a few things around and … Well I think the result was funky enough.  My friend was very pleased with it anyway so that is what counts.

I cut the wavy lines from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits from the the White card and used both the waves and the outside white pieces.  Behind it I adhered a piece of the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP.  Some of the cool Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon was wrapped around the white card before adhering it to the Lemon Lime Twist card mat and then to the Dapper Denim card base.

The heart is cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits in Lemon Lime Twist  and the “congrats” from Dapper Denim.  I couldn’t help myself.  I had to add a Rhinestone. 🙂

So you can make a funky engagement.

Thanks for visiting,




I made this card a month or 2 ago now and realised I hadn’t shown you.  I needed to wait until the special person had received it – and then well, I forgot to show you.  I made this card for a lovely friend of mine who had just achieved one of her dreams in life.  It has been exciting watching her work towards this goal over the last few years.  She kept this dream alive the whole time through all the obstacles and through all the steps needed to achieve it.  It was so wonderful the day she told me she had “done it!!!”.  I had to make a card to celebrate! 


This is very much her style.  Vintage, shabby, all the little details.  I did CASE this card off Pinterest but can’t tell you who sorry.

The greeting is from the Kit ‘Everyday Occasions’.  I love the greetings in this kit.  This was stamped in Lost Lagoon and cut with the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits.  This is a great die-cutting set for any greetings.  Don’t just think of them for Project Life. I added some Rhinestones for the bling factor. The Whisper White card is embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  I added half a doily to the top and wrapped around some Linen Thread and punched out some banners with the Banner Punch.  The flower is punched from Hello Honey card using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch. The white is layered onto Lost Lagoon mat and then adhered to a Whisper White card base.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend however you spend it.  I do hope there is some creating in it 🙂

Stop by again soon,
