Baby Boy Christening

Hi Girls

Here is a Heritage Christening Gown Card for a Baby Boy in Soft Sky on Whisper White.

My appologies to DebC; if you would like to use the gown for your card, I can convert this idea with another stamp then you can use the gown on a card yourself. Sorry Debbie. I have made a cuttlebugged cross but don't like it, am thinking how to use the buggy so you can do your thing.

The same layout would work with any suitable baby stamps, including the buggy from this set. I have done a similar version in White and Sahara Sand and another with White and Going Grey for Wedding Congratulations using an oval centre and decorating with Flowers from the heartfelt thanks set. I'll endeavour to add a photo of one of these if I have one.

Have a fabulous week. Love Dawnie. xx

Saturday 18th April - Mothers Day Card - Plum Daisies

Hi Girls This is the make and take lesson for Saturday. Can't wait to show you all how I did it and try another colour mix. This one is Artichoke, Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss and White speckled paper and matching inks. Stamps you would need are script, lace or floral background, baroque swirly stamp from the set and the new daisy stamp is from the Upsy Daisy set. MY stitching is pricked and drawn with gold pen but it would be even more beautiful if sewn by machine or better still by hand with gold thread! See you all soon. Love Dawnie. xx

Spring Joy Card version 2 Sponged & Stitched

Hi Girls

I have sponged and stitched my Spring Joy Card now which ages it and adds more elements of interest, I'm much happier with it now although I wish I had used brown or black thread. D:)

Happy Easter everyone!

Hello friends, family and followers!

Warm wishes to you and yours for this beautiful time of year whatever your beliefs.

Autumn is usually my favourite time of year; not so liking all this rain :( however we must be thankful as you don't know when it will come again and others are so desperately in need of it.

Happy Easter everyone. Dawnie. xx

PS. Am working on next weeks lesson which will be a Mothers Day Card in preparation for next month (Australians celebrate Mothers Day in May) it will be Olive or Moss with Plum I think. Watch this space! D;)

Not quite Navy Card, Old Olive and More Mustard. Stamped in many shades of browns. Jute string, frayed on the ends.

Have a Happy Easter everyone.

Love Dawnie. xx

Ocean Commotion - Tropical Sea Horses

Due to technical difficulties (mine I think!) I hope to add here a picture of the Tropical Sea Horses Card I made.

The stamps from this set are stamped with Versamark on Taken with Teal and heat embossed using white EP. Other cardstock is Brilliant Blue which was cuttlebugged (embossed) and Whisper White as a mat to highlight the image. Thanks for looking.


Hello? Are you there?

It is very exciting however nerve racking experimenting with this new experience. I hope you enjoy what is only the very start of this my blog site.

I have today added pictures of some cards I made with Ocean Commotion a little while ago. (At least I HOPE I have!).

Please enjoy casing these ideas, it would be lovely to hear from you by posting a reply, or contact me and I am more than delighted to receive an offer of advice! lol

Warm Wishes


Ocean friends
