How I tie my bows - Video Tutorial

It's no secret! I love a good bow and think a bit of ribbon just adds that lovely extra touch to a card. Whilst I love bows, and my ladies love the look of a bow on a card, it often causes anxiety in class when ladies don't have the confidence to tie their own bows and ask me to do them. So I thought I would do a little video on this and hopefully help those of you out there who are struggling. Please click the image below to watch the video, just a short 5 minute one this week!
My December Code is now open and has been used already (thank you) and don't forget about the Year End closeout items too!

Peppa Pig Punch Art card

Last week was our little Niece, Miss Mollie's 3rd birthday. She is super keen on Peppa Pig so a bit of Peppa Pig Punch art was the order of the day and I was inspired by these wonderful instructions from Kelly Kent 
I do love a bit of Punch Art I have to say and Miss Mollie was thrilled with her card as was her Mummy too!
I've used the Subtles DSP stack for the sky and the grass and as you know I am very partial to a polka dot so this background totally works for me.
One thing I find that improves your punch art prowess is a little bit of inking around the edge of each of the punched out pieces, just makes them pop!
Hope you like todays make and you might have a go at doing your own Peppa!
