Thinking of you

I saw this owl a little while ago so had a go at making it today.  Then the challenge was using it on a card, so I went in search of a sketch challenge & found this week’s sketch over on Mojo Monday 229 would suit.

Sketch 229

Card: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Real Red

Stamp: Teeny Tiny Sentiments

This owl was a bit big, so have made another one smaller….. now how to use it on a card……

Until later, happy stampin’



Get Well Mum

My Mum has just had knee replacement surgery this week, this is my Get Well card.  

I thought I’d give her some flowers that would last! So I went with the idea of my Valentine’s flowers and added a heart punch flower.

Card: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla

Until later, happy stampin’

Vase of flowers

Made some flowers for Valentine’s –  Used the Petal Cone die to make my vase & Fun Flowers die for my flowers

Until later, happy stampin’


Thought I’d share what we made in our Valentine’s class last weekend.

and a little chocolate box which held 4 Ferrero Rocher chocolates!

I used some Iridescent Ice on the big hearts just to give a bit of shimmer & bling to the card & box and attached the hearts along the centre after folding them to give them a flutter effect.

We also made an extra card

Until later, happy stampin’

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone….. hope you all had a wonderful day & shared the love!

I made lots of Valentine’s cards while I was working out cards for my class last weekend, but then had to make one that David hadn’t seen, so was up late last night making it.

As I was bit tired I needed some inspiration so I used this week’s sketch over at Stamping 411 – challenge 242

I did make one little boo boo on my card which sent me off to bed very unhappy but it was too late to redo it…. hope it’s not too obvious!

Card: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black,

Stamp: Tiny Tags, (SAB) Sprinkled Expressions, (retired) A Happy Heart

Happy Valentine’s Day David…….. love you!

Until later, happy stampin’

Baby girl

Just to prove I have actually been achieving this weekend, here’s another card I made using this week sketch over at Mojo Monday.

This is this week’s sketch #226

Ink: Regal Rose

Stamp: Stitched Stocking, Short & Sweet

Other: Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon, Stocking punch, Designer Label punch, Word Window punch, Rhinestone brad, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder
