This week I made another card 'to sell' to my Mum because she asked for feminine birthday cards as well.

Initially, I created a card using the pinata dies and the largest 'In and Out Stitched Oval STAX' die… Continue reading Pinata card using MFT dies

Fiesta card using alcohol inks and stencil

I won't lie - I'm not sure about alcohol inks yet! I saw a video by Michelle Short of The Card Grotto using stencils with alcohol inks and I thought "Wow! That looks amazing! I want to give it a try!" so I gave it a try and I think maybe, I should leave this… Continue reading Fiesta card using alcohol inks and stencil
