Collage Tag card

So I had this flower in my scrap basket... why only use it for Christmas... so I had a little play with papers which I punched out in the form of Tags and placed the flower just above the leaf.

With a collage design it doesn't matter what you add so I adhered a strip of patterned paper and a little flower to finish it off.

Yesterday I made a Home Decor project with tags on an A4 sheet of paper.
I hope it gives you some ideas and inspires you to make one yourself, and if you do, I'd love to see it.
The tags are 5 1/2 by 3 1/4 cm, or 2 1/4 by 1 1/4 inch.

Have a lovely weekend!

A couple of collage cards

Just a share of something I love to do when I'm inspired.


Used all different kinds of stamps, mostly from Hero Arts to stamp these pattern. The flowers have been cut out and the butterflies were from some patterned paper on the second card.
This frame stamp will remain a favorite. I cut out a piece of beige card stock which fits exactly inside the frame and after cutting out the frame, adhered it inside it.

Sending wishes..

A quick card, using Stampin' Up's stamp set called Butterfly Basics.

I thought I would print it big this time! The butterfly has been white embossed and I love how it shows the patterns in the stamp.

Have a lovely weekend!

Japanese washi papers

Until recently I have never been attracted to washi papers... that is until you see them in real life. Just recently I received a beautiful card and package from Carolyn who I met via Etsy. And she sent me some beautiful washi papers and I couldn't wait to try a card with them.

So here is my first try. I think they lend themselves well to the grid style.

In real life it has gold shimmers on the paper.

And this is Carolyn's card that so inspired me. It also shimmers more in real life.

Thanks for stopping by!

Revisiting a scrapling

I feel so bad that I haven't visited my favorite blogs lately. I have been so preoccupied. Yesterday my beautiful chicken, Lilly, got killed by a fox. The other two chickens are in shock and have only started eating and moving about again late this afternoon. I know it's only a chicken but it has a character and you get used to seeing them every day etc.

Anyway, I am going to share a little scrapling I made this afternoon. It is 4,5 by 1,5 inches, so very small!

It is a revisit of this one here:

Stamps are Hero Arts.

Pink and brown

It is a rainy afternoon and time for a little creative time with stamps. I still remain creative every day but now in different ways.  I love to cook and I love some time in the garden. We had a beautiful weekend with temps  up to 20°C; it would have been lovely on the beach.

So here is my card

I used distress inks and vintage sepia to stamp. I love this little bird.

This little egg basket was made by my future daughter in law. Her name is Lola and she is Rodney's girlfriend. I made this picture also because I was thrilled that my broody chicken (whose name is Lola too :) laid her first egg again after two months on the first of February. Just one cold day of snow and she snapped right out of it.

And some flowers I have been enjoying inside my home the last couple of weeks.

A Valentine's card

I made a Valentine's card.. well it could be a card for a different occasion but with a heart on it and the words Made with love - it could just pass for one!

I think I will be making more of these in different colors.

Thanks for stopping by,
