About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Purple and Pink!!

Have had a few lazy days recently - catching up with friends and family,  and doing jobs around the house. But, having been back at work this morning, thought I would take time to sit down and blog before I start crafting.

Today's card was a commissioned card. I was asked for a leaving card with a purple and pink theme.
This Hunkydory topper and card was the perfect thing - 'Handbag Heaven' from the 'A Touch of Style' collection. 

I started with an 8x8 card blank, and used pink and purple Bazzill cardstock for the mats and layers, along with some white pearlescent card. The bottom layer of white was embossed with Crafter's Companion Embossalicious 8x8 Chantilly corner embossing folder. 
The lettering was cut in three different colours - purple, pink and white - using Crafter's Companion Die'licious 1" Alphabet dies (upper and lower case sets). A little ribbon and some pearls from my stash, completed the card.

Back soon,
