One of my other hobbies is Nail Art. Although I haven’t actively done any for a while, I have a lot in the archive waiting to be blogged. My most recent was these designs I did for the launch of Wipeout 2048 on the Playstation Vita console. (This also ties in with my day job. Something else I make is Computer Games including working on Wipeout 2048). The designes are the logos for each of the teams in the game.

A cute little card I made to give to my Sister when she moved house. On the theme of “Home is where the Heart is” I used Emma Bridgewater heart paper and cut out a simple house placed on top of it. I tiled the roof with hearts cut using a heart punch and used some silver alphabet stickers for the lettering.
One difficulty in doing this was sticking the very delicate petals to the card. I used double sided tape for this. It worked reasonably well as it can’t bee seen through the petals however I was very close to tearing them. I tend to use double sided tape for my cards because it is less messy than glue and you dont have to wait for it to dry. Also some glues I have used in the past loose their stickiness and parts of the card fall off. I’ve found double sided tape is a lot more reliable. Also you can buy 3 for £1 in most bargain or pound shops.
The background for this card is Emma Bridgewater paper and I used gel stamps for the lettering.
I want to make sure this blog is just about crafting and doesn’t end up with lots of posts about me and my life!
However I did have a wonderful holiday in Cornwall this Easter and managed to do some crafting while at the seaside…
A simple logo made with some shell fragments.
For Girls: These simple cards were made with stamps with stamps for the lettering and some pretty Japanese washi paper. The hearts were cut with a heart shaped punch.
For Boys (or girls): I made these simple cards for some guys (always more difficult to make for I find). I made them with stamping for the lettering and a simple corner cut out design.
The other one I made with my corner punch tool (for the rounded edges) and some transfer lettering.
