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 !

Best Birds

EDITED - this was scheduled to post on Wednesday but for some reason didn't. I noticed and re did on Thursday but it looks like you still didn't get to see - the mysteries of Blogger lol ! Let's hope third time lucky !!

Oops, yesterday's scheduled post didn't work for some reason - probably operator error so sorry about that !

As promised another card in the same colour combination, this time using best birds


Sorry, no time for chat today - new stamps in the house lol ! But really I should be preparing for a class, so a very quick inky play is needed !

Hearts come Home

Morning all, hopefully this has posted at the planned time today !

Today, I have a Christmas card to share with you. Have you started your shopping yet ? I have, I do like to be early. It started when I was first pregnant, knowing my baby was due middle of January I decided to get my Christmas shopping done early and she arrived early the day after Boxing Day. My second daughter was due at the end of November but was late and arrived mid December, so with 2 birthdays and Christmas in a fortnight, I have lots of presents to buy and need to be organised !
I don't like them to miss out because they have Christmas birthdays so I try to get things as I see them but usually put them somewhere safe and forget where I've hidden things !

Today's card uses some of my favourite products from the new catalogue ....


Love those new Edgelits, expect to see them feature plenty of times across the next few months.

Have a good weekend

Delightful Daisy

Hello there and I hope you all enjoyed the Jems Blog Hop on Saturday ! There were some gorgeous projects under the Autumn Colours theme.

Today's colour combination is one I'm more comfortable with - Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide , Sahara Sand and a little touch of copper .

I have used the Delightful Daisy stamp set but some of the smaller stamps rather than the main Daisy image, and the flower centre makes a very quick background.


I've nearly used up all my copper trim too - must remember to order some more !
Back with another card using these colours on Wednesday
