Design Team Intro | Elaine Place

We are really excited to introduce NEW Design Team member…

Elaine Place

I started in the papercraft world over 10 years ago and my card making style has always been clean and simple. Since retiring at the end of 2019, and throughout the lockdowns, I have been trying out mixed media and in particular art journaling.  I enjoy learning new techniques and try to incorporate them into my card making.  I love the freedom that you get from mixed media – adding layers and layers of ‘interesting’ stuff!

Elaine is on our INSTA TEAM!

Elaine’s stunning clean and simple cards, often with a grungy edge to them, really stood out to us ♡

flower stamp | CAS card | best wishes

Elaine created her beautiful card by firstly stamping and heat embossing part of the FIBONACCI stamp. The flower from our CREATIVE CHAOS set was also stamped and heat embossed, fussy cut and layered on top of the background element. Elaine then added some gorgeous water colouring using 2 colours of distress inks. The ‘best wishes’ sentiment was stamped onto a separate strip of card and adhered over the flower stem to finish.


Supplies Used

inky flower stamp | grunge | mixed media | clear | rubber

fibonacci spiral stamp | background | mathematical | Maths | grid

sentiment stamps | card making | greetings


Welcome to the team Elaine! We are very excited to work with you!

We will be back tomorrow with more fabulous inspiration and DT introductions.

Have a great evening.

Helen + Mark xx
