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!

Less is More Challenge Week 5

At last a finished card for the LIM challenge for a pastel card.....

White, white and lavender.
  Lavender is one of my favourite shrubs in the garden.
The dies : Marianne Designs and Nestie Grand square
The stamps : from Sheena Douglas, and I'm ashamed to say both very little used!
Another challenging challenge from LIM - well done Chrissie and Mandi - you're making us think and think again about this white spaces!

Fabulous card as always Ikki
That die is so intricate, but the white against white looks gorgeously understated!

Great card Ikki, and love the way you have stamped the lavender, its made a loveky card. I just wish I could get my die to cut out like yours does, I have never managed to get a clean one cut out, but Marianne's flowers I used for my LessisMore card this weeks and I love it.
