A kind of different card - Thanks with the Cat Punch.


Sometimes it is nice to let your imagine run away and see where it ends up.

This card started off with the cat - I was playing with the Cat Punch and punching different colours and loved how it looked in Emerald Envy.



Dapper Denim always looks so nice with Emerald Envy and so to add a little more interest I grabbed some of the Colour Theory DSP - I love the way the crackle pattern just peaks out. 

I was making a card to thank a lovely lady that had just signed up to join my Stampin' Up team and so the sentiment from Lots of Thanks was very apt. 

If, like me, you are missing Gorgeous Grunge, you will appreciate how pleased I was to notice the ink splatter in Swirly Bird. It filled up the white space nicely.

A nice big bow finished the card off nicely. Still not sure if I love or hate the crinkly ribbon.

Beautiful Painted Harvest Card - Stampin' Up Inspiration



If you haven't visited for a while, you might not be aware of my obsession with Painted Harvest. 

It is such an amazing set, I am having to ration my use of it!

Today's card features very traditional sun flower colours - Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry with an Early Espresso centre.


I have used a mixture of greens to stamp the leaves around the perimeter. 

The sentiment is Early Espresso stamped on to Crumb Cake card stock.

A little bit Jute Twine finished off the card perfectly.

Colourful Seasons Autumnal Card Inspiration with Clear Block Stamping.


The weather here has been really wet and windy here recently - it certainly feels like Autumn is on its way.

This card has a real autumnal feel to it too doesn't it.


The three colour blocks are created using the clear block stamping technique - so easy yet so effective.

Just stamp a clean block on your ink pad, give a little spritz of water and then stamp onto the card stock.

My colours are a few I don't use very often - Always Articoke, Crushed Curry and Cajun Crazy.

The very pretty leaf image and the sentiment comes from Colourful Seasons - one of my favourite sets in the annual catalogue.

Both are stamped in Early Espresso.

Cheers to the Year - Anniversary Card Inspiration with Stampin' Up Products


I hope everybody had a lovely weekend. Mine seem to pass in lovely but busy blurs at the moment. 

We had a big group of friends over for Sunday lunch yesterday, it was a bit of a logistical challenge but somehow I managed to cook 4 Roast Chickens, 30 Yorkshire Puddings, 4kg of potatoes and a mountain of veg!

Back to work today for a rest and a gorgeous card to show you.

This was created with Cheers to the Year - I love this stamp set. It really is so versatile. 


I have used the stamp set to create the gorgeous background with Fresh Fig and Sweet Sugar Plum ink.

This card is for one of my team who is celebrating her first year as a demonstrator this month so I used the ever useful Number of Years stamp set and matching large numbers framelits combined with the new Everyday Label Punch.  

I used the same technique to make a matching gift box. Come back tomorrow to see that.

Christmas Card Set with Hearts Come Home by Stampin' Up - Video Tutorial

If you have followed me for a loooooong time you will know that I started 3D papercrafting as I was making more cards than I could ever send so started making gift boxes to give card sets as gifts. 

When I made this set of cards below it seemed right therefore to make a little gift box for them.


I am really pleased with the way both the cards and the gift box turned out. 

The Home Town Greetings Thinlets are so sweet and I love the extra detail added by the Stitched Shapes framelits. 


You can get a closer look at both the cards and how to make the gift set in my YouTube video HERE.
