This is a card I made for my brothers girlfriend a while ago for her birthday. I really love this Always set as it is so versatile. The sentiment is from Oval All which is only available for one more day in the Spring Mini Catalogue along with the Scallop Oval Punch.
Here is what I used:
Stamps: Always, Oval All
Paper: Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Bella Bleu (DSP)
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Non-SU Ribbon
Remember only one more day to order your Spring Mini Goodies and keep an eye for what is coming in the Summer Mini - gorgeous stuff!

Great Friend

This card was made a while ago for my good friend Tracey for her birthday. I think I probably cased this idea but can't remember where from. This is the most gorgeous set - very feminine.

Here is what I used:

Stamps: Great Friend

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Chcolate Chip, Whisper White, Bella Rose DSP

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss

Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects, Rhinestone Brad, Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon, Circle Punches, Eyelet Border Punch, Paper Piercer & Template, Dimensionals

I cut out the butterfly and covered it in Crystal Effects and then sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds. Popping everything up on Dimensionals made them stand out some more.

Remember this set is in the Spring Mini so you only have 3 days left to make it yours! Contact me now.


Another Farewell Choo Choo

Another card to farewell the Choo Choo set. This was for SC253 on Splitocasters. I flipped the sketch around to suit what I wanted to do.

Here is what I used:

Stamps: Choo Choo, Loads Of Love Accessories, Right On Track Wheel

Paper: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Yo-Yo Yellow, Summer Picnic DSP (retired)

Ink: Pacific Point, Real Red, Yo-Yo Yellow, Basic Grey, Close To Cocoa

Accessories: Corner Punch, Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, 1" Circle Punhc, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Button from my stash

Hope you like it and drop back soon!

Farewell Spring Mini Catalogue

Well its the last few days of the Spring Mini Catalogue so if you really have your heart set on something get in now! I made this card for FS142 on Splitcoasters. This is the card I chose to case. Mine is not nearly as colourful. I changed my colours and used a different train. I haven't used this stamp set enough but think it is a good one for little boys.

Here is what I used:

Stamps: Choo Choo, Fun & Fast Notes

Paper: Mellow Moss, So Saffron, Whisper White, Spring Flowers DSP (retired)

Ink: Mellow Moss, Basic Black

Accessories: So Saffron 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin Pastels, Corner Punch, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug and non-SU Brads

Email me if you would like to order this or anything else in the Spring Mini before it all disappears - maybe for good!

Happy Stamping

Slack Blogger!

I just realised it is nearly a month since I last blogged! Forgive me. Things have been pretty hectic and to tell the truth I have lost my creative mojo recently - must be all the pregnancy hormones. I got back into the swing of things on Sunday churning out a huge amount of chrissy cards for some girls at work. I keep selling them all though so I hope no-one expects a card from me! Here is a card I did a while ago for CAS33 on Splitcoasters. Apologies for the photo quality - a new camera is on my Christmas list.

Here is what I used:
Stamps: Basic Phrases, Live Like You Mean It (Hostess)
Paper: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Hemp Twin, Linen Thread, Button Bouquet (Kiwi Kiss), Dimensionals
I love the simplicity of clean and simple cards (CAS) sometime less is more. Well thats all from me today - promise to keep up with the blogging. There are some great new products coming in the new Summer Mini Catalogue from 1st December so watch this space!
Happy Stamping
