A5 Fancy Note Card Box

Good Afternoon Everyone

I hope you are having a great Easter weekend :o)

I thought I'd pop a couple of photos on of a project we made at our March Craftathon at my shop yesterday ... I love this project so much, I made another one in a different colour scheme! :o)

This is a fabulous idea (I cannot take credit for the idea as I saw it on another blog months ago, I can't remember whose though, i t was months ago), but I have added my own style to it :o)

This is a fancy A5 sized box, with a box inside that houses note cards and envelopes... I love it and can see me making lots of variations of this when I get half an hour free :o)

But, for now, I will show you the blue one and the pink one that I have done so far...

Here's the blue one :o)

Playing with Distress Ink Pads...

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to March and (hopefully) better, warmer, sunnier weather and the promise of Spring... 

I posted a couple of photos of cards I have made on Facebook and Twitter last night and have had so many people email me to ask which colours I used and which stamps, it's easier for me to tell you all in one go on here than spend half a day replying lol

So, here we go!

Most of you know me well enough by now to know that I love my distress ink pads for edging, but I also love using them for creating backgrounds and watercolouring stamped in with..
Such a versatile product and one of my 'must haves'!

The stamps I used are IndigoBlu - Wild Meadow

Here's Version 1


The colours I have used were:


Here's Version 2


The colours I have used were:


And, for a completely different 'use', here's Tilda watercoloured with distress inks :o)


Happy Crafting and, of course, Happy Distressing!!
