Looking back: A couple of 'lifts'

I love Melissa Phillips' cards at Lilybean Paperie, they are just beautiful and one of my favourite places to visit for inspiration, however I always come away scratching my head thinking 'huh' how do I try and incorporate that into my cards and I feel a little intimidated.

I saw this card and filed it away in my favourites to try and replicate it. I created the blue version last autumn when I first started getting back into card making and the red version was for my mum's birthday. I still love the blue one, it was my first attempt at sewing on a card and it came out pretty good by my standards!

This is my little look back at some of my older cards.

I used my favourite reversable Mambi paper, velvet paper, blooms from Tesco hand inked and a Imaginisce cordurory brad, I love those things!

Basic Grey Urban Couture paper, stamped and embossed with copper powder and perfect pearls, hand dyed bloom, sizzix flower and copper cut over funky foam with my bigshot all edged with copper krylon.

Who provides you with card inspiration?


  1. Beautiful! I really like the brown and red one, a nice combination I would not have though of..lucky mum!

  2. Lovely cards. Inspiration? Comes from you lot - I routinely read blogs for the contact but they are all incredibly inspiring for different reasons!


I love to read all your comments and will answer any questions!
