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!

Happy Engagement!

My bil has recently become engaged and I wanted to make an engagement card for the happy couple. I used stickles to add some sparkle around the balloons.

I had already chosen the papers - Nitwits 'Affection' and had a new Penny Black stamp which I thought would be perfect. I used pink and white twine to tie the tags together.

I used my Martha Stewart corner punch to add a bit more detail and some lovely pink gems which I had in my stash.

I used my heart punch to punch out an extra two hearts to add on to the card.

Coloured with Promarkers
