Oh Christmas Tree

This was the third card we made in the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack we did a few weeks ago now. I'm not if you can tell but I stamped the Christmas Tree on a piece of white gloss card to add a bit of variety. The colour hasn't come out too well either. I have used only Elegant Eggplant
ink on the white cardstock and used going grey in the background stamped with the swirl stamp. It actually looked at a bit like silver. Very simple and very quick this one.
Well I'm off to a stamping retreat this weekend organised by my upline Kim Gavarra. I have worked out what I want to get done over the two and a half days and when I started getting my stuff together I was amazed at how many boxes I was gathering. I now have to have a rethink and cut my ideas down to half. LOL

I'll try and grab a few photos while I'm away to post on here next week.

Christmas is Coming

Hello and sorry for another big gap in posting. I thought I would show one of the cards we made in the recent Christmas Stamp-A-Stack. This was my favourite of the three. Quite simple but I think striking - it was made using the Winter Post set from the Stampin Up Catalogue and designer paper from the Spring Mini Catalogue. No special techniques really so ideal for mass production ready for the Christmas Post. I will upload the third card from the stack soon.
If you would like to join us for my next stamp-a-stack or the specialty Christmas cards classes, just let me know.

Choo Choo Gift Box

It has been too long since my last post and I must apologise. This is a little gift box we made for the kids theme card night a little while ago now. When I first saw this set "Choo Choo" I said outloud "finally something for my boys". I do love it. It is a little bit tricky to get the carriages lined up properly but if you take your time and use a stamp-a-ma-jig you will get it right. The train track is a wheel and you can get both items from our Spring Mini Catalogue which runs through till the end of November this year. The track could also be used as an old farm fence too. The words are from the hostess set, Best Yet. They fit neatly on top of the flat bed carriage. In fact you could put anything on that carriage like a small cup cake, a party hat, a birthday present or a christmas bauble. The posibilities are endless.
