About Me

Hello to all fellow bloggers i am Denise and i have been card making for a good few year's now and i have also done a small amount of scrapbooking . I am married to Robin who likes to get involved as well by printing out the verses for my cards, we have one son called shaun and we live in Nottinghamshire, i am a stay at home wife and mum who likes going out meeting other crafting people. The first time i did any crafting i went to a small craft shop called Kim's in blyth which is a village shop near where i live. Then i got into cricut crafting i tried to master it myself, but then found out that Samauel Taylor's at leed's ran a cricut lessons by Sue Hobb so i got the basic step's from her. Then started going to Ali crafts near Lincoln and i found a lady called Fiona who really does know what she is talking about when it comes to cricut and the design studio so it is to her who i owe big thanks to for getting me to the stage i am at with my crafting.

I have just got this die so had to play and i must just say it look's better in real life, i used a white card for the base card then used pearl card stock and ran it through my cuttlebug and then dusted with a pale pink shimmer powder , the flower's were made with assorted punches.


I just love these stamp's from the nostalgic range by papermania, i stamped her on a heavy weight vellum, then using distress ink pulling the colour out with a water brush,the matt is done with an ek punch and placed on printed vellum.


This is a stamp i love using it's by papermania ,i used a distress ink pad then pulled the colour out with a water brush as you can see on one i have used black soot and the other was done with tea dye it also look's good done in green shade's


Well i have been playing around with the nursery rhymes cartridge and made these two card 's humpty dumpty and one to follow, i have made this one for my nephew who will be one on the 6th may,it is an easel card i cut humpty out 4 times, shadow in black ,pale pink for the egg and used promarker's to add his face ,blue and trimmed it to make his pant's and brown for the wall,i also used a creative expression folder of a brick wall and cut the brick's up and put them in a pile in front of his name.


Well heres one more, this time i have cut the ladybird's/ladybug which ever you want to call them,i cut them four time's first in black for the shadow,then in red for the main body,and in silver for the wing's and last in white for the leg's arm's and face adding a bit of colour with distress ink to the skin area's,,the lacey edge of the matt card was done by using an ek punch, then i put some vellum on top of it and card candy on the corner's to hide the glue and in the bottom corner is a small wooden ladybird
