Using some of my stash.

A very Happy Easter to all my crafty friends.   I am starting bey sharing some of the cards I have made using a few of my new stamps.

28 The butterfly I have had for a while its a pretty big stamp and has a steampunk feel to it but I am not really into grungy cards so I gave it a pretty slant.  Its not that I don’t like the grungy ones but I never feel as though I make a success of them.   30I loved this as soon as I saw it as it reminded me of our holiday in Lake Garda, Italy.  It really didn’t need much in the way of colouring so its fairly plain and may not be to everyones taste.                             29This was a bit of an experiment for me.  I saw something similar where the card had been really wet when the paint was used and so the colours had run.  However it had a lovely vibrancy about it and  I felt in my case this has ended up feeling a little washed out.  I am fairly new to using watercolour paints and I am told that having the colours washy and running into each other is the whole point but I would value an opinion from you.

The rest are just small 5 x5 cards and one 5×7 card using some of the smaller stamps.

Lastly I have one of the dies I got for Mothers Day.  It fit perfectly with some tiny toppers and so I made a batch of them.


Hope you enjoyed looking.  I love sharing with you all.

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.

  1. Happy Easter to you and your family Helen. I love seeing your cards and what a fab selection. Your watercolour birds are great, I’m not very experienced with watercolour either but I love the effect on this card x


    • I was just a little disappointed that I could not create the vibrancy of the one that inspired me but they maybe had a lot darker or deeper pens than I do. At least I liked it enough to keep it and not show it where the bin was.

    The die is wonderful, and you tested it with so many colors! I think the water color bird look just cute, so try some more!

    Your cards are all beautiful. I’m afraid I haven’t got a clue about watetcolours so I’m no help!


  4. Thanks you for your kind words Mrs C.
