Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Cuttlebug embossing - Spring

It's beginning to feel like spring!  This must have influenced my mood this week, because on this card I've gone for a bright, cheerful, fresh green DP and a stamped image by Darkroom Door.  On crisp white Linen cardstock embossed with the Daisy folder from Crafts-2-you , I think you will agree this is a defo card for Spring day!

The image is stamped on glossy photographic card using an Airondack ink pad. I have found that I get super results combining this type of card with these inks, because the image dries almost instantly - this means no smudging!

Well back to my desk....I'm scheming for tomorrow.....!?!?!?....Hope you have a great day.

This is a lovely card and it does feel springlike. We went to the nursery last week and bought some daffodils in pots to cheer the garden up a bit and it really has worked. We don't seem to be able to keep our daffodil bulbs from one year to the next they just disapear.

I just love this card Ikki.

Thanks so much for always sharing with us out here, we do appreciate it! I love this daisy folder, I have had a look on the internet for it, but the 2 daisy folders that come up don't look this this one, they were sizzix ones.

Please could you let me have the product number of it? Also, which company makes the stamp you used on this card?

Many thanks in advance

Kind regards

Hi Ikki,

I came for WOYWW but had to share with you here - this card is just SO lovely!

The green and white, the way you have designed it, makes such a beautiful fresh spring combo! I would be thrilled to be the recipient of this card!

Hi, I know this card was posted almost a year ago but I am a new blogger and came across it when I was looking at your new Chocolate Baroque design, (which is also beautiful). I was interested to see you have stamped onto photographic card. I would not have thought to use that, but I will definitely give it a go now. Kate x
