Here's cheery piece of framed art I've made suitable for a little boy.
I created the background using Tim Holtz Distress Stains and the stamped images are from the gorgeous Cock-a-doodle-doo! acrylic stamp set by Kaisercraft. Each image was hand coloured using Tombow Dual Brush Pens and a water pen then hand cut and adhered to the background.
This art is framed in a lovely crisp white frame and is available for purchase via my online shop on (
Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Marianne Design Flower Card - Cardmaking Online

Hey everyone, this pretty 'Thinking Of You' card is my last project on behalf of Cardmaking Online. I'll be leaving the design team at the end of August.

This card features the Marianne Design Creatables Stencil Flower die set LR0129, which I just love.

I've used white shimmer card for the base and leaves and the largest and smallest rose petals are die-cut out of pink ColorCore chalk card, which I've sanded on the surface to reveal the pretty pink colour underneath.

The rose is mounted onto gorgeous Kanban mint green opalescent card imprinted with 'Thinking of You'.

The greeting is also mounted onto mint green ColorCore chalk card, which again has been sanded slightly and the edges distressed to reveal more of the mint green colour.

A die-cut fancy flourish was adhered to the bottom right corner of the card and a few pink pearls complete the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
Have a great day, Vicky

Exciting News - my new shop on

I am SO VERY HAPPY to announce that I have FINALLY got my act together and set up an online shop on to sell my handmade papercrafts. Bear with me as it is a "work in progress" but I'm up and running if anyone wants to buy anything (right now I'm selling greeting cards and a few bookmarks with more items to come). I even have a logo! Woo-hoo!

My shop name is VickyPedlowDesigns. Here is a link to my shop:

Marianne Design Creatables Flower Doily card - Cardmaking Online

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share with you this card, which I have made on behalf of Cardmaking Online. It features the gorgeous Marianne Design Creatables Stencil flower doily.


This die set can be used in a number of ways but I chose to incorporate it into an apeture card.

First I die-cut the doily and flower out of white metallic shimmer card and added a black adhesive gem to the centre of the flower.

I then trimmed some white shimmer card and back and white floral paper and punched the corners of each before layering them on the front of the black card.

I die-cut a circle in the centre of the doily and also in the centre of the card then foam mounted the doily on the front of the card so that it fit exactly over the die-cut "window".

The flower was foam mounted inside the card so when you open up the card it looks like this:

As you can see I also placed decorative peel-off corner stickers inside the card.

I'll have to adhere a piece of white paper on the back of the card to write my message, or maybe I'll just use a white paint-like marker?

A supplies list for this card can be found on the Cardmaking Online blog.

Well thanks for stopping by my blog. Please be sure to check back again.

Have a great day,
