Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!!!!!!

I'm probably rushed of my feet like everyone else, with the hustle and bustle of cooking the Christmas dinner with excited children around your feet squealing with delight about what Santa bought them (i know mine will!!

Todays cards are my favourite....... both use the new Holly Berry Designer Papers and new stampsets the first one being Polar Party.

and the Second one using one of the single stamps Sweet Snowglobe which teams up really nicely with the treat cups.

As you can see from the first picture I have added some fake snow to make it tactile for  children, I've also added it into the treat cup and the little girl that recieved that said "WOW"....... I just wish that we could have had a white christmas this year!

I hope that everyone enjoys the rest of their Christmas and Wish you all a Happy New Year !!!

Countdown to Christmas - Day 5

Wow I can't beleive its Christmas Eve already.......doesn't time fly when your having fun!! well I finished my baking yesterday after 9 dozen mince pies and 4 dozen jam tarts, half of which have been whisked away by my dad and little bro!!

Todays Cards that I'm going to share with you are using Pennant Parade and matching punch and a retired stamp set Silent Night (which is an old favourite that I couldn't bare to part with).

  For this card I have also used the Top Note die in my Big Shot and added some ribbon around it. The cardstock colours are Whisper White and Real Red, the inks used are Garden Green, Chocolate Chip and Read Red.

As I mentioned early this Stamp set is now retired but its just perfect for the Brayer resist technique which I have used here with Baja Breeze ink.  The base card, matting card and Seam binding ribbon are from Stampin' Up!s current colour range - Cherry Cobbler and went well with the paper I found amongst my stash.

I really must play more with my brayer now, the effects are awesome!!

Countdown to Christmas - Day 4

Today I'm going to be rather busy baking mince Pies and jam tarts (for the BIG kids that don't like mince pies). Every time I bake my brothers and other family memebers ALWAYS turn up so I have now learnt to purchase extra supplies of everything!!

but before I get started I thought I would share another couple of Christmas Cards with you, using the Pine & Pointsetta and Welcome Christmas Stampsets.

Countdown to Christmas - Day 3

Todays cards use one of Stampin' Up!s single stamps Dasher and the sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stampset.

For this card I have used  Bravo Burgundy as my main colour and added Serene snowflakes in Wisteria Wonder and Pink Pirouette adding a little Dazzling Diamonds here and there to the centres. Instead of ribbon I have used Stampin' Up!s new Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch...its ideal as it means you can have ribbon in any colour you like!!

The second card is a case of a card by one of my downline's Vanessa. I like the layout and the manly colours it used making it ideal for some of my customers "man friends".

Countdown to Christmas - Day 2

Todays cards are using one of my all time favourite sets Lovely as a Tree. I made up 2 examples for the ladies to see one using Dazzling Diamonds and the other with out.

Everyone had a lovely evening getting very "blinged up" using Dazzling Diamonds with the Stampin' Up!s Heat and Stick powder. (Even the hostess Washing Machine was very sparkly by the time we had finished!!).

The sentiments are from the Curly Cute and Heard From Your Heart sets. If you would like to purchase any items used to make these cards please email

Countdown to Christmas - Day 1

As I'm convalescing at home at the moment and been told to take it easy. (Yep ALL presents are bought, wrapped and under the tree!! ALL the food and drink shopping done well apart from the fresh bits, Frank will have to get those!! first year ever I'm this organised)
I thought that I would share with you some of the Christmas cards that we have been making in my classes over the last few months.

Both of these cards are using the Winter Post stamp set and using mainly the Neutrals card stock and inks  - Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and the added colour is Bravo Burgandy from the Regals Collection. I think Dasher looks quite handsome in this colour.

I used 2 of Stampin' Up!s border punches- Lace Ribbon  and Scallop Trim and added some pearls in the centre of the Lace ribbon one.

Love and Sympathy

Today I am going to share with you a card that I made for my uncle  who sadly lost his wife last month.

This stampset I feel is perfect for this occasion as I am all ways at a loss of a verse to write for the inside of these cards.

I used is Baja Breeze as the base, stamped on Not Quite Navy with corrosponding ink with Enfancis and mounted this on Very Vanilla.

For the flower I used my markers Old Olive and Baja Breeze again on Very Vanilla, all the sentiments are stamped in Not Quite Navy.  To finish the card off I have used Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon and some Perfect Pearls
