Chunky Cards

Hi there everyone!

I have some cards and some news on Chunky to share with you today…

Firstly Mr Chunks.. well….he had to have emergency surgery last week because he ate a sock and it blocked his small intestine 😦   and they could not work it through and out the other end.. they had to cut into his intestine to remove it… He was high risk for the operation, because he is still getting chemo so he has no immune system, and also he is on steroids which inhibit and slow down the healing process..  I have been at the vet with him every day last week getting his temperature checked as because it was high and kept getting higher 😦 …. however today when we went to the vet is was near to normal (hurrah)  so the antibiotics have done their job 🙂

So with chunky on the road to recovery I headed up to my shed today and made some cards for my Etsy Shop …. I am selling cards to help contribute towards my vet fees, as chunky still requires chemotherapy every 4 weeks (or until it stops working).. so if you fancy a wee handmade card here is the link to my shop Seafoamblue  😉

Here are some of the cards listed… I even have a chunky range and hope to bring out an Isla and Rhona range too very soon!

I’m off work tomorrow… so will be back in my shed making more cards for my shop

As always thank you for popping round

Indigoblu Challenge #21 Magical Masking

Hi Everyone!

It is time for another new challenge at the Indigoblu Challenge Blog, this month the theme is Magical Masking.     Now, I had never heard of it before so i needed to do a bit of researching to find out what i needed to do, then once I had gathered some inspiration, I managed to create this cute wee card using masking tape, ink  and stamps  🙂

This card is fun and easy to make, it comes together quickly and it uses two stamps,  the sentiment,  Inspire from Sarah’s Choice and also the Stylised Flowers Stamp.

Indigoblu Challenge 16 – Monochromatic

Indigoblu May 2014 Challenge 1

Hi there everyone!

I have some rather exciting news to share with you all this morning!

I am really excited to announce that I am a sparkly brand new Design Team member of the Indigoblu Challenge Blog!!

I am really looking forward to work along with the other girls on the team and to be able to work with the fabulous Indigoblu products, and  produce samples for the challenges each month!

The theme this month is Monochromatic and I chose a clean and simple card design using various hues of green.. incorporating a couple of “on trend”  styles including watercolouring and sequins and links to the Indigoblu products will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Indigoblu May 2014 Challenge

I used the Big Butterfly Stamp, which I absolutely LOVE!,  inked up with versamark,  embossed with ultra fine white embossing powder, then watercoloured with various different hues of green water based inks,  the card panel has scattered ink spots and a sprinkling of sequins to finish it off.

The sentiment is from the More than words A6 stamp set, I stamped out one of the sentiments, then trimmed out the words “Life is too short” and mounted this just under the butterfly.   There are a lot of great sentiments and sayings in this plate, and I have some great ideas for the others 🙂


I look forward to seeing you all over at the Indigoblu challenge blog and look forward to seeing all your submissions to the challenge 🙂

As always, thanks so much for popping round.

Hello Foxy!

Day 2 of the Online Card Class – Watercolor for Card Makers


My card for today concentrates on a watercolour background using the emboss resist technique featured yesterday, it looks like I am going to be working a day behind, I really want to try all the methods and techniques, its just a pity I have to go to work all day, which only leaves me with around an hour in the evenings to play..

hello foxy


If you already follow my blog, you will recognise the wee foxy tag I added to the front of my watercoloured embossed background, it was part of my homework for class that I was practicing over the weekend.    He just fitted perfectly on this card, it was meant to be!

I will add a list of supplies at the bottom of this post, just incase you are interested in any of the products I used.
