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.

Apothecary Art

Evening everyone, hope you enjoying this fab weather.......hope this isn't our summer !!!
Well, packed up my craft room as solicitors said we should be moving tomorrow. Now unpacked it seeing its Thursday and they still haven't exchanged contracts!!! So, consoled myself by crafting hehehehe.

Today's make:

Background paper was a retired one to use it up but really wanted to use papers from Comfort Cafe
Stamped border was achieved using Early Expresso ink and the scroll stamp from Everything Eleanor. The scalloped strip was done using dotted scallop ribbon punch.
I cut a piece of Early Expresso card using a framelits Label die.
I stamped using Early Expresso ink onto Crumb Cake card then die cut with framelit labels and positioned it onto the Early expresso card.
I made a flower using the retired paper and the Boho Blossoms punch. To finish, I used Crumb Cake ink on white card then punched using Word Window punch and stamped forever from Fabulous Phrases set. Pearls were used to complete the card.
