Evening all!

I'm delighted to announce that I have another collection of cards which featured in Papercraft Essentials magazine and it's all about cake!!! Issue 127, on sale NOW features my fun cupcake cards using the very latest Avery Elle stamp ranges...

I'm really not a girly girl and don't usually go mad on the pink, but with this project I just couldn't help myself! I stamped the actual cupcake using Memento Desert Sand ink, I then built the cupcake wrappers and toppings using a mix of Colorcore cardstock in shades of pinks and lilacs. The cherry on the top was glazed with a bit of glossy accents!

I'm so happy with the way this collection turned out, I also think it's been shot amazingly by the Papercraft Essentials team! I hope you like my efforts!

Hello blogworld!

Apologies AGAIN for my absence, I've been so busy with life and wedding prep that i've scarcely had the time to sit down and make any cards!

That said, I missed the release of Simply Homemade issue 62 which has a rather exciting Hero Arts feature done by yours truly! It was an honour to feature in best-selling multi-crafts magazine Simply Homemade which brings the best from the craft world into one magazine each month!

This feature is all about on-trend colour layering with the latest ranges - a perfect combination for creating a stack of quick cards you can grab anytime for any occasion! I used the Ombre inkpads that i fell in love with on my last Hero Arts feature, and added plenty of twine, Washi and sequin bling which balanced well with the clean and simple look!

The cards in this collection feature the Color Layering Butterfly & Hibiscus Stamp sets and the Light to Dark Peach & Pink to Red ombre inkpads. I can't decide which card i like the best, but know they are all going to come in handy as i'm terrible at remembering special occasions until the very last minute! I hope this feature has inspired you to make some special cards of your own!
