Crowning Affair


I am off on holiday tomorrow so won't be posting for a little while. Before I go, I wanted to share these cards I made recently using Trimcraft Dovecraft Crowning Affair papers. These papers are beautifully designed in fabulous colours and, best of all, come from the value range.

The first card has a tropical feel. The flamingo and sentiment stamp are, like the fish stamp, from the set free with this month's Creative Stamping magazine. I have coloured this one with Spectrum Aqua markers. The flowers are punched using a Tonic punch and the card finished with lots of gems and a bright pink ribbon.

I would like to enter this card into the Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog Challenge #27 Anything Goes.


My second card is an anniversary card for my husband. We have been married for 8 yrs on 21st July and we will be celebrating it on our first sunny holiday abroad since our honeymoon.

It is a more simple card- I have just layered papers and die cut hearts using X Cut Nesting Dies. The four hearts represent our family, the two of us and our 2 sons. The sentiment was created in CraftArtist 2 and printed on card.

Thanks for popping by. Hope you all have a great week x

Thank you. I love the colours too- they are exactly the colours we saw in Lanzarote too, so I'm going to use them more to recapture the holiday feeling x
