Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

White Christmas

The lovely Karen set the challenge of a white on white card over on Craftbubble. I normally struggle to do these cards but I got some fabby new dies for my birthday. I tried a technique I had seen or read about somewhere where you ink the folder and I think it looks ok. I may try again with a stronger colour.


I used memento london fog for the Stampin Up! sentiment as I thought black would be too harsh. I also used it to edge the white baubles.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Make it Monday
Creative Craft Challenge - minimalistic
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - embossing
