Lisa Sumpter papercraftbliss ruff card 2014

This fun card was made using same of the elements and cards from the Simple Stories Sn@p collection. Super cute amd since I have a little dog myself, I snapped it up when I saw it.

I’ve also used Papermill Direct ocean blue card as my card base. It’s one of my favourite colours of theirs.

I made this teal ombre card using one of the digi papers by Pink Petticoat

The stamps are by Personal Impressions and the sequins are from Lawn Fawn.

I used Papermill Direct plain white and black card for this card.

I’ve used it to make an Easter card.

It’s perfect for inking on as I have with distress inks. Ivory card gives your projects a more warm feeling than if you’re using plain white so along with the blue sky, the scene feels warmer, as if the sun is shining somewhere.

I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut out the cross and shroud, the hill and the tufts of grass.

You can see more offers on the Papermill Direct offers page.

What’s a Pirate’s Favourite Letter of the Alphabet?



I have a shadow box to share with you today. I used the super cute Pirate and Dog digital stamp by Jellypark which inspired me to make this whole scene.

I think this is probably one of my favourite shadow boxes I’ve made. it’d be perfect in a little boy’s room. Now if only my friends could stop having girls and have a boy, I’d have someone to give this too! hehe.

I coloured  the digi with Promarkers and inked up the sky with tumbled glass distress ink. The waves, lighthouse, anchor and lifesaver (or rubber ring as we call them in the UK) are all from Sonya DeHart on Etsy. They’re clip arts which I print and cut with my Silhouette.  I’ve only just discovered her and she’s got a lot of lovely sets in her store.

The box itself is made from Papermill Direct white linen, plain white and black (for the birds) card. The jute twine is from stash but I think it might be from a long ago purchased collection from MME.
