Sneak Peek at Octobers Card Class using Carols of Christmas by SU!

Hello and welcome today :-)
I have a card to share with you today that we will be making at my All Day Card Class in October.
Reminder: I have just two places left on the Monday 9th class and four spaces on Saturday 7th. Message me to join in the fun before the 22nd September (this is to ensure all the products arrive in time). More class details can be found HERE.
OK, so lets see what we'll be making - well, one of the card designs anyway ;-)
 I love the Powder Pink, Navy and Tranquil Tide colour combo. Fresh and fun for Christmas.
 I love when there are matching dies with a stamp set.
 And this font <3 nbsp="" p="">
Short and sweet from me today as I'm off up to Yorkshire to see my SU! Mum and Sisters today. I can't wait!

Oh So Eclectic and Totally Tabs makes a Happy Wife Card!

Happy Saturday to you!
I have had a busy week here again and tomorrow I'm off to Yorkshire for a couple of days to make cards with friends :-) I can't wait! Next week is going to be fun too as I have been chosen to be on a design team for a brand new challenge blog Inspire.Create.Challenges. This is fortnightly challenge blog with lots of fun themes (I can promise you, I've seen the first four!) with lots of talented ladies on the DT sure to inspire you! I do hope you will join us starting Wednesday, however you can go and meet the DT this week HERE.
But, even before all of that I have lots to share with you here! I wanted to make this card as soon as I got my hands on the Totally Tabs! For this card I teamed it with Oh So Eclectic. Such fun, see.....
 The sentiment in the set says "Happy Life" so I inked it with a marker and missed off the 'L 'the first time, then inked it all the second time to make it say this - a sentiment all partners should know ;-)
 So, it's a tad tricky to tell from the photos but I made the front of the card narrower than the back to allow for the tab and so it would still fit in a regular envelope.
 I do love the embossed diamond shape in the thinlits pack for the Oh So Eclectic set.
All product links at the end of this post.
Well, I was going to take the dog out for a run in the forest but the heavens have opened (again), looks like he'll have to wait and I'll go colour!
Hope you have a great Saturday!
Thanks for looking today :-)

Another "Hug In A Mug" Card

As promised, even if a little later than planned, I have the Vanilla version (see the white one HERE) of my "Hug in a Mug" card! I am loving just using the stamps in this set but I would like to try a little no line colouring using this set at some point...
But, first I made this using the new (and long awaited) Thick Vanilla card to make another cas, single layer card...
 I probably should have used this sentiment on yesterday's card as I only stamped one mug of hot chocolate and a cup of tea to this version! Ah well, next time....
 As this card was stamped onto a Vanilla base I kept the colours darker and more Autumnal, using Navy and Cherry Cobbler. I think it would make a great Get Well card or even just a note to say Hello this Autumn. Who would you send this card to and why?
Well, I hope you like this version?
Thanks so much for looking today,

A "Hug In A Mug" Hot Chocolate Card

Hi there,
I hope you are having a great weekend so far? Ours was busy with my FiL being taken ill with a stroke this week, but with the wonders of the marvelous NHS and ever improving medicines means he is home already. He's tired but on the whole a lot better than you might expect!
Anyway, today I have a simple, one layer card for you using the Hug in a Mug stamp set. I have actually made two versions of this, one on white card and one on vanilla, I'll share the vanilla one tomorrow ;-)
So, here's the white with Pool Party version...
 Those little chevrons are a small stamp in the set but as you can see they line up perfectly to make a longer image. The sentiment is also from this set.
 How cute are those candy canes? Christmas is really on it's way now! In fact a packet of mince pies 'fell' into my trolley yesterday!! Ho, ho, ho!
 Right, that's me off to work now so I better get going ;-)
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll be back tomorrow with the other card using this set.

Festive Tank Top using Christmas Sweaters by Stampin' Up!

Hello there,
Today's card uses the Christmas Sweater stamps again and this time I chose the tank top/vest from the set which has an adorable summer snowman, maybe a sandman? But not in the sleepy sense of the word, lol. OK, I'm probably not making a lot of sense here, let's take a look at what I made instead....
I have an Aussie friend who will probably get this card from me this year, even though she lives in England now, I'm sure she will appreciate the Aus humor in this card.
I coloured the tank top using ink pads and blender pens as the image is quite detailed. I find the pens get into the very small areas better than an aqua painter. The sentiment was inked using my markers for this multi coloured look.
The snowflake used for the background is from the Hug in a Mug stamp set, stamped using versamark*, I'll share some cards using that set very soon, too! And the sentiment is from Labels of Love.
TIP: Use Versamark on any coloured card for a subtle, tone on tone effect.
Well, that's today card for you, what did you think?
I'll be back soon with more. 'Till then...
