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.

Just loved making this card i did it for a friend of mine's birthday,the little girl was a stamp i used at cricut class (thanks audrey), i coloured her in with promarkers and glazed the swimming ring with glossey accents and also put a bit on her sunglassers, the shell frame i made by using everyday paperdoll cricut cartridge i took the shell and kept copying and welding it, and then added faint lines to the shell and gave it texture with a bit of glitter glue.

Well the other week we went over to jo channon's shop in conningsby and what a fab day we had, i went with fiona for the day, we had not done a class at her shop before, and wow it will not be the last,above are the cards i made, all of them very good cards and i will try my best to do them again,if you have never been and you live close enough to go give it a whirl you will have a very good time and more to the point cards that you can send out out people, not like some classes i have been to in the past where the cards are only fit for the bin..


Oh i wish i had put these cards on one by one when i made them


Another stamp by papermainer, i stamped her using distress ink and a water brush to pull the colour out, the stamp can be used for birthdays or get well


This is edwin (i think) oh i loved doing this card, i used a loo roll ,(the dark brown bit) cut in half and put it in a tree bark embossing folder by creative expressions then brush coloured it with distress inks and of course promarkers for edwin


These cards i have made using my pirate collection stamps at the moment i have only used the boys and at some point i will get round to making some cards up using the girls, i have coloures them in yet again with my promarkers.


I made this card for LOU'S birthday hope she liked it,i used a marianne stamp and coloured her in with promarkers then desrtessed around the edge's with tea dye destressing ink applied with my famous wilko mens shaving brushes, i also did the same around the egde of the card the back ground is a creative expression embossing folder and again dusted over with tea dye.
