I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 20. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 25 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Card - just for fun!


I decided to have a little play with my Speccie pens and colour in this lovely Humphrey stamp that has yet to see ink (bad, bad Jane!)

I knew I wanted to use the turquoise set as these are my fave shades in the pens so thought it would match lovely with yellows are a very bright, cheery card.  The colours I used are:-

Skin: Warm Grey 0.5, 1, 3, 5 & 196
Hat: 45, 37, 41
Ribbon: 178, 171, 65
Dress: 33, 87, 163, 23, 109
Shadow: Warm Grey 1 & blender

I cut the base card on my Claibur using a Marianne die which was then embossed and sanded to release the core of the core-dinations card.

The "pearls" are made using a paint pen - love it!!!!

Gorgeous as always Jane, I'm still debating whether to buy these stamps cos there's so many I want at the minute so not sure which ones to get first and I need to save some pennies but I keep buying speccies lol x
