Flower Tilda

31 December, 2010

Some more stampin up papers – I just loved this paper – it’s perfect for this card with the large flower, which I coloured from my stamping up inks. Tilda is coloured in with both copic markers and stampin up inks on watercolour paper.



Tilda with Curls

28 December, 2010

Here’s Tilda with Curls, I love her curls – most liekly since I have dead straight hair and always wanted some curls in mine!

Again using up some of my Stampin Up collection of papers and embellishments! I’ve coloured her in with both Copic markers and Stampin Up inks on watercolour paper.

Merry Christmas Everyone! Here’s a little treat from my old stash.

It’s Dreamy Tilda again with some of my retired Stampin Up papers. I do love to collect paper, I think it’s definitely time to start using up my papers and embellishments!

Putting up the Christmas tree is such a joyous time! Fantastic Silhouette stamp from the same Welcome Christmas stamp set as the previous post. Just so sweet. I brayered my embossing folder before embossing.

Welcome Christmas Joy

20 December, 2010

What do you think of this stamp set? At first, I thought that I wouldn’t be able to use it, now it’s just the type of stamp set that is perfect for mty Christmas cards. Have a look at this one. A little bit of masking of the JOY letters before stamping on the wreath.

2010 SU Team Christmas

19 December, 2010

We had our team Christmas party this week and this was one of the presents that I made, along with a box of Fererro Rocher chocolates,  4 special tealights (made from one of the projects from my 12 Weeks of Christmas emails) and a gift bag – also from one of the projects from my 12 weeks of Christmas.

I was so happy when I found these battery operated tealights – just so cute and they flicker like real candles.


My present was gorgeous! One was survival kit with the most touching poem with the meaning of all the little pieces. All of this was inside a can – unopened for me, Inow I want one of those can openers that can “reseal” the can! The second part of the present included a gorgous paper purse made out of our greenhouse gala DSP and it was filled with some choccies – yummo! Jan MacAulty made my gift, such a talented lady!

Aviary Thank You

The summer mini is here and I love this mini catalogue. There’s so much gorgeous stuff in it. Don’t forget to download it if you haven’t already done so! Check the side of this blog.

On this card, I’ve used 3 things from the Summer Mini – didn’t I tell you that I love this Summer Mini? So I’m showcasing one of my favourite stamp sets – Aviary – it’s just so cute with all the bird cages and little birds! The Clear Scallop Square Big Shot Die is fantastic. It’s clear so I can see where I’m cutting – isn’t that great? Of course the Square Lattice Embossing folder is just so delightful! Just perfect for my card.

I’d love you to tell me what you think of my card in the comments section!
