handmade bespoke cards - free giveaway!

I have always loved to print things, and am experimenting quite a lot with a few types of printmaking when I can, noticeably monoprinting, drypoint and collagraphy, since they are more accessible if you don`t have a press and there`s no chemistry involved! That was my sister`s forté at school, not mine!!
But as a painter, I also love to be able to use printing techniques in my paintings, and alongside other things, I sometimes use my handmade rubber stamps.  Quite an addictive process, I warn you!  

As a sideline to my fine art and illustration practice I have decided to squeeze a bit more use out of my stamps by making handmade original greetings cards.  These are virually mini works of art, signed, and can be framed and hung, doubling as a nice gift for someone special or even a treat for yourself.
 All cards measure 14 cms or 5.5 inches square and include a matching decorated envelope. 

An example of the back of one of the cards. This one is from the blue peacock design.

PS: the last 4 pictures are not included in the giveaway offer, but similar designs will be offered for sale at a later date.

 If you`d like to win one, postage free to anywhere in the world, just head over to my facebook page, and if you haven`t already, please like it, and then share the post or leave a comment below it there, to be in with a chance.  The winner will be picked at random next Thursday.  Good luck!! 

(Failing that, you can buy one from me for £8.00 sterling and postage at cost, via facebook. Discount for multiple purchases.  I will also be selling them on ebay, or hopefully, Folksy, soon. The price is comparable to that of bespoke frameable cards on sites such as Not on the Highstreet, and bearing in mind you are buying a totally unique product, is really quite a little bargain!)


  1. They are all such beautiful designs.

    1. Thanks Gina! I haven`t been on Facebook for that long, and I think sometimes it can be a bit hiss and miss with the newfeeds!? Thanks for liking, you never know, you might be the winner!! keep up the great artwork and the baking!

  2. Judith: Un bello, fino y delicado trabajo. Bienvenida a mi Blog y Felicitaciones por el suyo, la seguiré visitando.
    Saludos cordiales.

  3. Gracias Rubén! Que bueno saber que eres de Chile. Lo extrañamos mucho, pero tal como tu dices, no el smog. Siempre me cuerdo de las hermosas vistas después de la lluvia, y ese olor tan único justo como tu lo describes. Lamentablemente, por estos lados lo único que hay últimamente es lluvia. Estoy harta ya! Y eso que ya es verano!! Bueno, supongo que en todas partes se cuecen habas, cierto?
