cards, Christmas, Tutorials


I made this cute card at our stamping weekend and I haven’t shown you yet.  Well actually I half made it and I had to finish it when I got home and that is probably why you haven’t seen it yet.  I get lots of comments about this card at my classes.  I CASED this from my friend Leonie who I think CASED it from Pinterest??  I will show you it then I will tell you about it.


Does this have the cute factor??? This is using the Owl Punch.  The owl hat is from the ‘Snow Place’ Set and the antlers are cut with the ‘Snow Friends’ Framelits.  I drew the “santa Belt” with the white gel pen.  The greeting is from ‘Christmas Cuties’. The Moon is punched from a circle punch with a “bite” punched out with the circle punch again. I wanted to tell you about the background though and the card base.

Firstly for the card base I will give you the instructions but not the exact measurements  as you can make it any size you like really. The card base width is a standard size card (so metric – 14.8cm). The length is the length of your standard card (metric is A4).  Score the card length in equal thirds.  Score the right hand end section in half again.  So it is a bit like an odd-shaped “M” ??? Makes sense?? Yes!!!  🙂  On the back panel I cut another piece of white card to that size.  On this piece I stamped the “splodges” from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ in versamark and heat embossed in White Embossing Powder.  I sponged over Soft Sky and Marina Mist and directly on the edges I sponged Night of Navy.  I adhered that piece on to the back panel.

For the front I cut another piece of white card to the size of the front. I tore across the top edge. Then masked sections with scrap paper to sponge “hills” on to the piece with Pool Party – I think? I sponged around the whole front piece with Pool Party too.

Lots of punching but lots of fun to put together.

Thanks for stopping by now.  I am off on holidays for 2 weeks. YAY! Don’t worry you won’t miss me too much.  I have some posts scheduled.

cards, Christmas


Back to more of our Stamping Weekend projects.  I will share some more of the Christmas ones I did.


This one I CASED from Pinterest from and I changed it up a bit. I have used ‘Lighthearted Leaves’. Isn’t this such a versatile set!! You can use this for Christmas and any occasion. I added my card to a Cherry Cobbler base.  The vellum is the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in the Annual Catalogue.  The greeting is from ‘Wondrous Wreath’ which I heat embossed in Gold.  I finished it off with some Gold Twine and the centres of the leaves I added some Rhinestones that had been coloured with Sharpies.

I love these little penguin dudes.  How cute are they!! I have CASED this from my friend Leonie.  It is longer than the standard card to fit them all in.  You can dress these dudes up anyway you want and cut them with the matching Framelits.


This is the inside of the card.  I forgot to colour his nose!


This next card we CASED from Pinterest too.  This is using the set ‘Be The Star’.  This is not your typical Christmas set but it is great to use other sets for Christmas.  I tore a strip of DSP from the ‘Home For Christmas’ pack and adhered that down the side of a Thick White card base.  I curled up the edge a little. I stamped the smaller stars in red near the torn edge.  I stamped the other stars in Pool Party and Real Red and cut them out.  The greeting from ‘Lots of Joy’ is stamped in Black. The “splodges” are from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’. I added some Rhinestones to the centres of the stars for some added sparkle.


We all made this card at the same time.  It is interesting to see how different they turned out in different colours.  Aren’t they great???

Thanks for stopping by.

I will see you with more weekend creations next time.


3D projects, cards, Christmas, swaps


I thought I would show you the swaps I received from last week’s team meeting.  There are some really cute ones here.  I think Tags were very common 🙂  They are great to use as tags or add them to cards.


Sorry for the lighting.  Sigh! Must do something about this BUT you can get the idea anyway.

Now the cute little penguin card in the back does have a head.  Sorry about the photo.  The penguin is stamped on the inside of the card and a circle window is punched on the front with the hat on the front.  It is so cute.  I love all these ideas. Thank you to all the clever demonstrators in the Inky Fingers Team.  Nice to share ideas.

I will show you my swaps.  Once again – tags! Now that wasn’t the theme but funny how it works out.


I CASED the red one from Pinterest and made up the other in Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  These use the ‘Sleigh Ride’ Edgelits.  For the red one I punched out stars from Gold Foil using the Star Border punch.  The Smoky Slate one I have punched out one star in Silver Foil. Then I added some Dazzling Details for a sparkle but you really can’t see that well sorry.

I better get going. Our internet is being switched off soon to transfer it over to the new NBN network.  Hopefully it is not too long offline.  I think my kids are going to die!!!!! 😉

Thanks for visiting.
