About Denise Fletcher

I have been creating cards for about ten years now, and still get a kick out of it. Ive learnt a lot of techniques along the way that are fun to try! I am a former member of Design Team (2014) which I did for a year and loved it. At the moment I'm just creating for my own pleasure! I create the odd mixed media piece but at the moment it's mainly Cards. I hope you enjoy my work.

Och Aye the Noo!


I have a Scottish born Brother in Law and thought I better make him a kilt card!

A few concertina folds and matting and layering and voila! Hope he likes it!


Its Summer Time!


….so it must be time for another Christmas Card! Wey hey!

A simple ink embossed background with holly dies and stamped letters. Backed onto black card. The colour is unusual for Christmas, but I like it.

The second card is similar, embossed with a snowflake on the front, inked the snowflakes and a stamped Noel and ribbon at the bottom.

Here Comes Santa!!


And yet ANOTHER Crimbo card! I made this with Papermania Glitter Paper. If you haven’t got any, don’t bother! Its murder to cut or stick anything to! It tears on the guillotine too! Argh! Here I ink embossed the snow embossing folder, with Tim Holtz Broken China ink pad, added my die cuts (unbranded so don’t know the make) and backed it with more glitter paper. I love the look, but its hard to work with!

Sea Theme cards


I recently bought these High Tide stamps (StampinUp) and, inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, l thought I would give a go.

I’m quite pleased with the results. Im showing all three cards here.

I inked the card using a dauber for the sky and sea, and found l only had one stamp for foliage so used that! (Ahem! Must remedy that straight away!!!)

Yaye! NOT a Christmas card!!


Some relief for you from the old Yuletide cards!

Here I’ve made two male cards with the same layout. I used Mr Smiths Workshop papers from Papermania, and the word die cuts are XCut. Layered onto black card.

For the tiles pattern I embossed mirri card and wiped with black acrylic ink, wiped off once part dried and then added alcohol inks, dripped onto it in places.

The second card I used silver foil tape over card, embossed and then used Embossing powders onto it.
