Painted Harvest

Morning all,  hope you had a good weekend ?

I went shopping with my youngest but also managed to fit in some time in the craft room in between ironing etc. And for the last couple of weeks I've been to a sewing class and I need to get my homework done, a job for later !

Today's card continues in the monochromatic theme but includes the gorgeous Painted Harvest stamp set. This set ( with the matching leaf punch ) has been so popular and looks amazing in all sorts of colour combinations.....


And those little black rhinestones are new too - not just for Halloween ! 
Pop back on Wednesday for another card in this colur scheme

Cat Punch

Friday again and thank Crunchie ! I've had a very busy week this week and am hoping to spend some time in my craft room this afternoon finishing some partly completed projects. So many things I want to make but not enough hours in the day ....

Today's card uses the new Cat Punch. Now, I'm not a cat person and don't really like Halloween.. so I did wonder if I really needed this ......and as always the answer is yes lol !


So, what do you think ? Do you need it too lol ?

Have a good weekend

Card Front Builder Dies

Oops, I'm late again, had two lovely classes today but I'll show you those designs another day.

The card I have got to show you is made with the Card Front Builder dies and is very elegant in just black and white.....


Before I joined Stampin Up I used to make a lot of monochromatic cards but now I just have too many beautiful colours and combinations to choose from !
These dies are fab though and this design could be repeated in a wide range of colours.
I'm off now....I've had a parcel delivered today and this time the goodies are for me !

Let it snow .....

Happy Monday all !

Had a lovely day yesterday at Jems Team Training up in Leeds. Fab projects and lovely company, thank you Julie Kettlewell and the Jems !

Today's card is very similar to one I've made before but this one has a Christmas theme .....


I just love  snowflakes ! A girl can never have too many lol.

And now I'd better get going, I have a Card and a Cuppa class to go to, back soon

Carols of Christmas

Morning all,

Friday again , and back to the pink colour combination. Today I've used the Carols of Christmas stamp set again - the large sentiments make a big impact ....


I do quite like making Christmas cards in non traditional colours and my classes will now all include at least one Christmas card each week - whatever the colour combination ! Quite a challenge sometimes but I'm always up for a challenge !

Enjoy your weekend

Oh so Eclectic

Morning all !

I'm back to the blues just for today but I wasn't able to show you this card last week as it was for my good friend Amanda of The Craft Spa fame. Her birthday was yesterday and I know it has been received so I hope you had a lovely day Amanda !

Amanda loves her blues so it was easy to choose colours for her - although I am converting her to an occasional bit of pink lol ! I used the Oh so Eclectic stamps and dies but also the new leaf punch - I've used this loads already.....


I actually made Amanda's card while I was making my class designs , well in advance for me - I'm usually last minute. com. The class version continued with the combination of Sahara Sand and a touch of copper but I knew Amanda would prefer more white.......


Which one do you prefer ?

Celebration time

Hello all, 
Thinking of everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma at the moment and hoping you manage to keep safe. I can't believe it's only a few weeks ago I was in Florida and the 'normal ' storms there are dramatic enough.

Today's colour combination is back to 'pretty' Powder Pink, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and a touch of Champagne foil.
I have used the Celebration Time stamps and dies and this is a fab bundle and works just as well in masculine colours too !


A quick and easy card to put together thanks to the dies !
