Super Fathers Day Card

This week has seen my confidence in my cards improve immensely. Last weekend a friend asked me to create 2 custom cards, one of which was for Fathers Day.  With a love of super heros in the house and a request for a Superman style image, the obvious choice was My Super Boy by Tiddly Inks.

I had a ball making this card. I have found the more and more I apply some of my colouring teaching of Alyce from Kit and Clowder, the more I love the results.

I have not really used many stencils despite the latest trends, so I had a ball using a stencil I received in a Simon Says Stamp card kit.  I have been looking for the perfect reason to try it out and this was it. I really like the way the snow chalk ink worked for the stars and dots on the backgrounds.

I also received my Studio Calico project life kit for August just at the right time. 2 Days before stating this I opened it and fell in love with the large card with the sunrays, it worked perfectly with a paper from the August Card Kit, and a label die cut.

I hope you like the card and I will share the other card later in the week.


You are amazing


You are amazing Superboy





The Love of a New Puppy

About a week ago I was asked to make a card for a friend at work. She has a friend who is getting a new puppy and is VERY excited. I understand this excitement well as we have recently added a puppy into our house and the excitement lasted for 3 months before we brought her home, 2 months later it has not worn off. This meant I knew how special I had to make this card.

I thought I already had the perfect image but put it out there to the Kit and Clowder community to see if they knew of any others.  I quickly found the image “Wendy” by Saturated Canary.  I fell in love and remember sitting just like this with our new puppy, this was the image I was looking for.

It took a while to colour as I really wanted to apply some of the things I had learnt from the Live Colouring Event, so over about 2 hours the coloured image came together.  When then putting the card together I wanted the image to really stand out so I went so to my basics, a clean and simple design, and used Deconstructing Jen Sketch 164.


So Happy For You



I hope you like it and let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment 🙂
