Bo Bunny Isabella number 1?


IMG_3189 (Medium)A bit of a break from christmas cards ! This is Bo Bunny Isabella, I am sure I have already posted some cards made with this paper but I can’t find them so I have started the count all over again! Love the colours of this paper, and I have teamed it with some pretty flowers – the large one from Manor House, and the smaller ones are Prima. Also used stampin up cardstock and sentiment stamp, and martha stewart leaf punch and liquid pearls. I had a relaxing time in the craft room last night, and sorted out 2 of my December lessons – just a couple more to do – I think I am doing and extra class in december – a night class so that will be something different!nathan has been experimenting with lighting when he does my photos – let me know what you think!

How I feel about casing…



An extra post today. I have discovered that I have inadvertently been involved in a heated discussion about cardmakers copying fellow card makers cards, then entering them in competions. From what I can gather someone did this with one of my designs, and won. I have never made any secret of the fact, that is what my blog is about.I feel if I didn’t want my cards copied I wouldn’t post them on here. This is my hobby and if my ideas inspire fellow cardmakers, all to the good.If I find a cheaper/easier /new way to do something, then yes I am going to share it!To those cardmakers who don’t want their ideas copied – don”t post them on the internet! having said all that ..if I do case a card and show it here I always tell you you here where I cased it from .. it’s only fair that the original artist get recognition. Enough from me for now, normal blogging will commence later today.IMG_3168 (Medium)

Lovely as a Tree christmas ..


IMG_3205 (Medium)IMG_3206 (Medium)IMG_3207 (Medium)Three cards today, all made with stampin up cardstock, and stampin stamp set called Lovely as a Tree.These cards were experiments, to see how I could use normal stamp sets for christmas makes. The top card used some kaisercraft patterned paper from the Yuletide collection, and I stamped the tree, dotted it with glue and added some Flower soft to it, for a bit of texture.For the second card I inked through a negative piece of cardstock which I had die cut an oval, then with the negative piece of cardstock still in place I stamped the row of trees,removed the mask and then stamped the single tree.The third card was embossed along the bottom, ribbon wrapped around it,and tree stamped and dotted with some kindyglitz.I am off the the craft room now to make a start on my december lessons. I have some great paper for teen boys cards and some beach themed cards and lots of ideas running around my head, so let the creating begin! til tomorrow….

Two More Festival of Trees cards


IMG_3213 (Medium)IMG_3219 (Medium)two more card today made with my new stamp set from stampin Up – Festival of Trees.The papers and cardstock I used( in fact everything I used) is from Stampin up, but it’s not strictly Christmas paper, I just thought that it would work!I like the pale blue one for a change from red and green. Today has been another good day in the craft room with quite a few more christmas cards made. Til tomorrow….

Stampin Up festival of trees stamp set

1 Comment

IMG_8573 (Medium)IMG_8574 (Medium)Every year I try to limit myself to one christmas stamp set, and one christmas die set,mainly because there is such a small window of opportunity to use them, and over the years the christmas stash mounts up and I do use previous years buys in new and different ways as I learn more techniques. This years stamp set buy was this one from Stampin Up. Called festival of trees, in the set is a variety of tree designs, as well as the bird shown here and a few other co-ordinating stamps. I also bought the punch that co-ordinates with this set , its a tree punch which has lots of possibilities besides punching out the stamped trees.the two cards I have shown here are the first two I did with this set, forĀ  a lesson over at the retirement village.The papers I used were in a paper pad that I purchased last year from Stampin has been the most enjoyable day in the craft room. I laid out my Time to Celebrate papers from graphic 45 and have created so many cards! All different too – little girl type cards, cards for older girls(!), wedding/bridal shower cards, baby cards, and I am heading back in there now to do some anniversary cards before packing up and doing a few more christmas cards! til tomorrow….

Stampin Up wonderous wreath


IMG_8572 (Medium)Todays card was made with mostly stampin up products, the only exception being the Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder.The wreath is from the wonderous wreath stamp set, and then I used the matching dies to die cut it out, andĀ  the “Noel” ( from glitter cardstock), was also die cut from the same set.This is a great set to use when making a lot o xmas cards all at once! Til tomorrow…..
