More Moroccan Tiles ...

Made a couple more cards with my new X-cut Moroccan Tile die - experimented using different colour schemes and themes. 

As it is such a fiddly, intricate die I used spray adhesive to make it stick to the backgrounds.

Inking up old stamps ....

I've had these stamps for several years and haven't used them for ages, so it was about time they had an outing!  The background was made back in April when I experimenting with Brushos.

These stamps I think were from the Jan 2018 issue of Crafts Beautiful mag - and had never been used before. Unfortunately there are lots more stamps in my craft room that have not been inked either, so I must make more of an effort with my stash!

Baby Girls

There seem to be a lot of baby girls expected amongst friends and work colleagues, so I thought I'd better get prepared!

Made a few different styles and sizes

I went to The Range earlier on to buy a few basics - double sided tape, card blanks and glue dots and this reduced X-Cut Moroccan Tile die fell into my basket too!

I like the effect cut into holographic card on the baby card above - plus its quite effective in plain white as well!
