There are lots of things happening to share with you at the moment with specials and extra bits. You really want to see inspiration though don’t you?? 🙂 I have a quick card to share with you today. This card was one of the cards we made at last week’s Christmas Stamp A Stack. Everyone loved the richness of it. There was a lot of cutting and embossing to it but once that was done the card came together quickly. Especially when they had 3 of these to make!
The card base is Cherry Cobbler with the card mat embossed with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder. There was a bit of punching with the Sprig Punch in Old Olive and Shaded Spruce. The only stamping was the sentiment which is from the Wishing You Well set. Of course, the beautiful leaping deer from the Detailed Deer Thinlits.
This card was inspired by one by Jo Anne -> HERE.
Thanks for visiting me. Have a great day,
CELEBRATE WORLD CARDMAKING DAY WITH A CRAFTERNOON TEA!
If you are a Wollongong local then this coming Saturday let’s get together with a fun Crafternoon Tea as we celebrate World Cardmaking Day.
There will be creating and laughs and fun – and a few surprises along the way. 🙂
WHEN: Saturday 6th October at 2pm
In my studio in East Corrimal
COST: $15 (extra $5 to use my adhesives).
BYO: Scissors and adhesives.
PLEASE RSVP: Thursday 4th October. Places are limited so be quick.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Yesterday I shared a card using the Wishing You Well set. When I made that one I made a similar Christmas version. It shows just how versatile this set is. The layout is exactly the same as yesterday’s version with just a couple of changes. Head back to the post to see it if you missed it.
This is the Christmas version.
For this one, the base is Shaded Spruce and the wreath is stamped in Shaded Spruce. I am really liking this colour lately. It’s a great green for traditional Christmas cards. The bow was stamped on scrap white and cut out separately – with scissors – no punches or dies available. 🙂 The bow was raised up with Dimensionals. The “spots” from Timeless Textures were stamped in Smoky Slate this time. The strip of paper is from Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper available in the Annual Catalogue. The sentiment from the Wishing You Well stamp set fits nicely in the Stitched Labels Framelits. I layered the white stamped and diecut piece on to a Shaded Spruce one. TIP: to do this diecut a Shaded Spruce one, cut it in half vertically and separate the piece as you layer it under the white one. I added some Red Rhinestones to finish the card off.
I hope you like this version. Christmas is coming up way too quickly don’t you reckon?? 3 months today.
Have a great day,
Since I am sharing cards with the Wishing You Well set lately I thought I should show you this one. This card was one of the cards we made at my Holiday Catalogue Launch a few weeks ago. Everyone liked making this card even though it is fairly simple. We made this on the weekend at a private class too. They all liked it there also. 🙂 (BTW: If you can’t make a class you can book a Private class with me with a couple of friends. They are always a fun time).
The layout is based on the Freshly Made Sketches #352 – you can see that here.
There was the option to stamp the bow on scrap white paper and cut it out (no Framelits or punch for that sorry!). This was raised up with Dimensionals and that looked good too. The strip of paper is from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper. The sentiment stamped on Crushed Curry was cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits and we trimmed off one of the ends of the banner. We added a few loops of Silver Thread behind it. To add some colour to the white space the “dots” from Timeless Textures was stamped in several places in Mint Macaron.
I made another similar card to this in Christmas colours. Check that out in tomorrow’s post.
Thanks for stopping by today,

I have my classes on this weekend using the Nature’s Poem Suite. This has become a popular bundle for many people. I wasn’t sure about it at first but I have recently got them so I thought I would share a few cards with you that I have made.
I have shared a few cards with this bundle before. If you want to check on those be sure to click on the tag for “nature’s poem”. Here is one post -> HERE to get you started on though.
Here are a couple more cards.
For this first one I stamped some of the leaves over white card to create a background. I added a short length of the Burlap ribbon behind the oval sentiment and then added one of the diecut leaves stamped in Early Espresso. I am really not sure of this though. I think it is too heavy. What do you think?
For this one below I was trying a few different things. I liked the words separated. I really like this sentiment. I know a few people who I could use this saying for. If you notice the white background there are some embossed leaves on it. In the Nature’s Roots Framelits set there are some leaves that don’t cut but emboss your card. That’s pretty cool.
The rest of the card is fairly simple with a strip of the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, Grapefruit Grove twine and the tree stamped in Early Espresso and die cut out.
I hope you like them.
Thanks again for visiting me. I love that you stop on by. Please visit again. 🙂
Have a great day,
