Now for a change from Christmas cards I made this one using Prima Tea Thyme patterned paper and my cuttlebug.the die I used were – spellbinders labels 17, lace doily accents, and Memory box La Rue Flourish. The sentiment ( Love it) is from a stampin Up set called Apothecary Art, and the pleated satin ribbon is also stampin Up. I just added lace and perfect pearls to this one to finish it.Tonight I want to spend a bit of time in the craft room, doing some special orders, but first I have to find my work table which is under such a pile of stuff! Til tomorow…

Here is number 3 in my Stampin Up Apothecary art stamp set series. I have used my Stampin Up blossom party die to make the flowers, and die cut the leaves with my Meadow leaf memory box die. Also used on this card are – Stampin Up twitterpated designer paper, Drifting Endless embossing folder by Couture creations, a Martha stewart punch, and My Minds Eye brads. The stamped image was die cut with Stampin Up Labels collection . The Stampin Up cardstock is Basic grey and Blushing Bride. Tonight i intend to spend a little time in the card room coming up with some new designs – I have finally prepared all my lessons for the next couple of months, so now to fill the market boxes!

A very late post today, but today has just escaped from me and Nathan and I have just finished photoing my cards, which we usually do on a Sunday morning. This means the light was not good and to avoid putting up Nathans photo tent (which is impossible to fold back up) I was in the dark under the dining table which he assured me was the best place to take said photos.We will see when he has put them on the computer. Anyway on to todays card. No pretty papers today! Bazzil cardstock which i ran through the cuttlebug with my swiss dots embossing folder, and spellbinders dress forms die ( cut from a bit of a cereal packet and painted with crackle paint) The pretty lace is actually a curtain remnat, and the flowers were cut with my cricut and the flower shoppe cartridge.All that was needed then was a bit of ribbon, a paper flower and some liquid pearls.That’s it for today, but will see you all tomorrow. Til tomorrow…….

The paper of choice today is My Minds Eye – Follow Your Heart – Be happy. This is a bigger card than I normally make, and I made it at the request of my husband so that he could take it in to work to thank everyone for there best wishes when he was sick recently. I have layered 2 layers of papers on to the cardstock, which is stampin Up baja brezze. The flowers are diecut with my cuttlebug using Stampin up Blossom Party die, and I also used a memory box die – La Rue Flourish. I added lace, bling flourishes, and My minds Eye brads, and the sentiment was stamped with a stamp from the stampin Up perfectly penned set.I like the subtle colours on this card, but I don’t know if it’s the dull rainy dreary weather we have had this week, but I am seriously in need of bright, colourful patterns and colours so I am going to go through all my papers ( may take a little while…) and create bright things this week end! Til tomorrow…

Here is another idea for cards for teen boys – the paper I used was a free pad on the front of a magazine, but any similar paper will do for this one. The cardstock is Stampin Up cherry cobbler, as is the bakers twine. I used bazzil cardstock to cut out the hand controller and used a few brads for the buttons. A very wet day here – I don’t know – sunny one day and bucketing down the next! A good evening for cardmaking in the craft room I think! Til tomorrow….

Here is the final Prima meadow Lark card! Although as we speak the collection is sitting on my work table as I am still doing orders and that paper was asked for on two of the cards, so I am not done with it yet although I probably won’t post any more cards with it. Here I really let the paper do the talking – I just couldn’t bring myself to cut into this pretty paper so I made a feature of it instead, fussy cutting around the design and just adding a butterfly ( memory box dies kaliedascope and moonlight butterfly) and some lace and liquid pearls. Tomorrow I think we will have some male cards! Til tomorrow….

After a detour yesterday we are back to my Prima Meadow lark series, and here I have used both the paper and one of the matching chipboard pieces, onto which I stamped my sentiment which is from a stampin up set called perfectly penned. The buttterfly is die cut on my cuttlebug using two of my recent purchases – Moonlight butterfly and kaliedescope butterfly from Memeory Box, and I also Die cut a couple of the flowers shown and added some ribbon and lace.The colours on this paper are gorgeous, and if I get some time this weekend ( I still have one day to go in my weekend) I think I will do some with this paper!Til tomorrow…

Although we have finished our sketch series, I still had a fair amount of American Crafts neapolitan paper left, and so created this card, with a stamp I have had for a long time, but rarely inked. I wanted to practise my colouring with tim holtz distress inks, and I am pleased with this first attempt, but don’t look too closely! The stamp is from Stampin Up – A kind word set, and I teamed it with stampin Up cardstock – tangerine Tango and a bit of ribbon and Kaisercraft Rhinestones to complete. I hope to spend a little time in the craft room ( or studio as Nathan calls it and I must admit I like the sound of that description!) tonight as my back appears to have mended itself… Til tomorrow….
