About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

From the Heart stamps September challenge

Each month From the Heart Stamps gives us a free images to use in the Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge.  If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's set and join the challenge and you will receive next month's free.

I have layered the image and one of the sentiments onto paper from Pininkie and coloured with markers.  Layered onto black and then white card.

I would also like to enter this card into Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge


  1. This is gorgeous - i have to try this technique some day.

    Thanks for joining the SOTM September Challenge @ From the Heart Stamps !!

  2. Love Love your card and especially how you added the image onto DP. Did you copy the paper into a program? I don't see how you could run the paper through a printer. I would really like to know how you did this because I really do like it. Thanks

    1. I insert the digi paper into a publisher document and make it the size I want. I then insert the image on top of the paper. You can only do this with png images that have a clear background.

  3. Very cute card. Thanks for playing along at FTHS in our SOTM challenge.

  4. Thank you so much for joining my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper September challenge with your lovely crafting - hope to see you again soon x
