cards, Catalogues


When I received my preorder of Holiday Catalogue goodies a month or 2 ago this was the first card I made.  I went searching on Pinterest for some inspiration.  This card was almost CASED from  I have just discovered his blog.  I like his style.  Take a minute to pop on over and check out his clever creations.

Anyway, back to the card.  I liked the colours he used and the way he used the ‘Sleigh Ride’ Edgelits Dies. I teamed my card with the ‘Jingle All the Way’ set.


I have used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate.  The card base is Smoky Slate.  I added some Silver Ribbon on my card and stamped some stars from the ‘jingle All the Way’ set in Bermuda Bay in the sky. The greeting was stamped on some scrap white card.  I really should have flagged the end.  I had stuck it down by the time I realised.  I did try and lift it but……. Best to leave it alone I think.  The little embellishment was made with the Festive Flower Punch.  I had just received that punch and was playing around with it.  It was sitting on my desk so I just grabbed it and made it.   Not sure whether it was meant to be a flower or a snowflake.  Anyway,  it filled the spot.  I added a Rhinestone to the centre.  It looks OK.  What do you think???

You can get the stamp set and the Edgelits Dies as a Bundle and save 15%.  Gotta love that!   Wood – $59.50 AUS   Clear – $51.75 AUS.

Here is the stamp set.  It has a quite a few cute little images with 4 greetings.


Have a good week.  I am in the middle of a big project.  I might share it later.

Until next time.

I made this card a few weeks ago but only had a chance to show you now.  When I received my Festive Flower Punch I had to have a play and create a different flower than the traditional one. That’s what you do right??? 🙂  I made a card up with the flower.  Since making this flower I have seen some great variations on Pinterest. I have to say I do like those ones a lot so I will have to make those too.  Here is my card and I will give you the details of the flower.  You might remember the small flower that you could make with the wing of the 2-step bird punch?? Well this is it’s big brother 🙂


I have a chart below to show you how I created the flower so I won’t say too much about that.  For each of the pieces I sponged them with ink.  I have used Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and Old Olive for the stems.   See the pearl accent?? I was trying to work out what to add.  I added a Metal Rimmed Pearl but the silver didn’t go right so I created my own.  I punched a circle from the Gold Foil Sheets using the smaller circle from the Owl Punch.  I adhered a pearl to the centre and added the both with a glue dot onto a small bow from Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I really liked this addition.  The greeting is from ‘Birthday Blossoms’ and I punched one corner with the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch.

Here is a chart to create your own flowers.


So this punch is very versatile.  Not just for your Poinsettia flowers.  I can’t wait to make some other versions.

Here is the punch if you haven’t noticed it.  The punch can be found on P 31 of the catalogue and is $31.00 AUS.
