Which Craft? UK pride ourselves on creating new and unique Quality Card Blanks'For Your Inspiration'

We are known in the Card making industry for using Only the Highest quality Card gauge throughout the complete 'For Your Inspiration' Collection - where many of our colleagues

Our Designs can be seen on Create & Craft used by many of our Craft colleagues to also show case there own beautiful stamps and card making products..

We also organise the following event.......



Paula has very kindly given us the following prize for one of you lucky people to win....




All you need to do is leave your name with Inlinkz on the Inspiration blog HERE,only one entry per person please to make it fair for everyone...

The DT were sent a selection of shaped card blanks to use. I must say the quality is lovely and I really enjoyed making this. It would have been difficult if not impossible to cut and score this myself :-)


I went for a British summer afternoon theme and used this very cute Kitty Picnic image from the Wild Rose Studio, coloured with Copics. I used a spellbinders labels 8 to cut the image and the mat and I the edges inked with Stormy Sky and Forest Moss DI. I added star dust stickles here and there and used glossy accents on the ladybirds The papers are from Kaiser Crafts and I used a couple of Martha Stewart butterfly punches and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps. The pearls are Hero Arts and the spotty organza ribbon and button are from Crafty Ribbons.



The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the Inspiration Blog to see them all. Goos Luck with the prize draw too :-)
As a special promotion Crafty Ribbons will be giving free postage on all orders placed during the Best of British event
