For some reason I found a piece of Very Vanilla card which had been embossed with the Holly Textured Impressions Folder. So, what to do with it? Make a card of course as it was only just big enough for a card front. I decided to go with Garden Green and Real Red, I had the Satin Stitched Ribbon so thought it would all co-ordinate. I’d almost forgotten about the Peaceful Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set which has the Perfect Pines… Read more »

This card could be for a birthday or for Christmas or just to send someone a smile. It was a Make ‘n’ Take at our recent Latte Girls Team Meeting and Leonie always comes us with great projects. The joke at these meetings is I usually only ‘Take’ and do the ‘Make’ at home (if ever). However this time I actually completed the projects and thoroughly enjoyed them. The Fancy Frost Suite is just gorgeous.  It uses Soft Sky and… Read more »

This is a full-sized card and I’ve added the sentiment and grass.   All the cards are basically the same with different card bases which reflect the colours of the business. The sentiments are punched out with the new Classic Label Punch and are also… Read more »

Saturday often means Challenge Day and today I’m participating in the WWYS Challenge #78 Sweet Cupcake Challenge. I was excited when I saw this challenge as I have the stamp set. However, it’s one which hasn’t seen any ink yet. It did today after the power was turned back on. The local electricity people were upgrading something and turned the power off at 9 am mid load of washing, but I did have coffee in hand. Now back to the card.  … Read more »
