Welcome To My Blog

Hi everyone!!

My name is Jan and I live near Cardiff with my husband, dog and my 3 gorgeous Birman cats. Everyone who knows me, knows that I am mad about cats. I gave up breeding thema couple of years ago and can't wait to start again. In the meantime, crafting has become my new obsession.

I have been card making for about 6 years now but it is only recently that I have discovered a real love of stamping and hope to share that with you in the future.

Morning everyone....hope you having a wonderful day so far. Have been making cards for a future table top sale (for charity and my first!!) so been neglectful of my blog etc. Have discovered the joys of using Tim Holtz distress markers as watercolours so keep an eye out in the future for cards using this technique.

Anyway, back to this card...shopping list:

backing paper: just old paper stock
whisper white Stampin Up! paper for stamped image
Tree is from Hopeful thoughts set and used SU! markers for the ink
Crumb cake ink around the stamped card
Crumb cake card around the die sentiment
finished off with a charm tied on with SU! cord

Hope to blog another card later so please pop back !! x


  1. Hi Jan, This is a lovely "Simple but Stunning" card!! I love it! I normally do quite fussy cards, but it's always nice to do a card like this as well..:)..I love the "ticket" sentiment..Did you cut it out by hand or is it a die pls?....Enjoy your day..:)..xx
