Hello everyone,
After a few quite hot days we are now in for some thunderstorms.
Summer can be so wild sometimes can’t it?
My poor dog is hiding in his kettle at the moment,
he doesn’t like it when there is thunder around.

Today I’ve got a series of cards to share with you made
by Naomi Fairhall from our Design Team.

Naomi has used inks, oxides and stencils to create these gorgeous backgrounds
for her images to go on.
The images are from Rubber Dance, Stampotique and Katzelkraft.
She loves these brands and you can see how much
fun she has with them.
What a difference the words make to the finished cards too.

The stamps used are:

Merry Magpie – Rubber Dance

She has also used Lavinia stencils and Stampotique stamps
to make these cards.

I think backgrounds always look fantastic with a little stenciling.
It seems to add another layer so easily.


I am off to go and check on my dog!
He doesn’t like thunder at all.
Maybe a little food will help settle him down.


Wishing everyone a crafty day.
