Painted Harvest in Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate

Hi there,
Today's card is the last of the three Painted Harvest cards from my class in December. I went with a completely different look from the last two makes I shared with this set - using a Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate colorway for this design...
 I always find Flirty Flamingo really hard to photograph so it shows the right colour, which is a real pain because it's one of my favourite colours ;-) Is it just me?
 We fussy cut an extra flower and punched the leaves adding silver thread, before layering it on the top of the stamped background. The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics.
OK, so this is my last post for 2017! I'd just like to say a great big, heartfelt Thank you to everyone who has supported me this year by choosing me as their demonstrator and of course for coming here and looking at my makes. I hope to share so much more with you in 2018.
Until then, Happiest New Year wishes from our home to yours xxxx

Painted Harvest Layered Card.

Hello there,
I do hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your nearest and dearest? We had a really lovely, relaxed time chilling at home and generally not doing a lot although I did manage a few sneaky hours in my craft room last night ;-)
So, this card is another card we made at my Painted Harvest class and I am happy to say this stamp set and matching punch is carrying over into the new year. However, the bundle price will be finishing on the 3rd January when the Spring/Summer catalogue launches but then sale-a-bration 2018 starts on this day instead, with free products for every £45 spent... just so you know.
OK, let's see this layered and (I think) quite masculine, card....
 So I was very late to the Painted Harvest party so I'm certain this card was inspired by the many, many other similar cards I have seen out there, on the web. If you made one of these cards first, then thank you! You totally inspired me :-)
 I used the Wood Textures DSP as a background and layered copper foil leaves and stamped images too. All topped with a sentiment from Guy Greetings :-)
OK, that's all from me today, I'll be back with the last card in this trio tomorrow and then we'll be onto new catalogue goodies! I can't wait to share the Spring/Summer catalogue and Sale-a-Bration with you :-)
Thanks so much for looking today,

Smitten Mittens in Gold and Navy

Hello there and thanks for visiting me here on Christmas Eve!
I have one last hurrah of Christmas cards today but I don't just have one card, oh no! I have three (albeit similar) cards to share with you today :-) So let's have a little look, shall we?
 I actually made five of these cards, all inspired by some lovely navy felt I had ordered this week :-)
Both the sentiments are from the Hearts Come Home stamp set.
TIP 1: I used a gold sharpie to colour the pearl (or an enamel spot would work too) to hang the mittens.
And I also used the pen to edge the sentiment...
TIP 2: Hold both the pen and the sentiment facing upwards, that way if you slip with the pen it will be on the reverse.
 I love the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and it's so versatile. My New Years resolution is to use this folder much more often!
 And all three of them together to finish today.
Well, that's all my Christmas cards this year! And I managed to blog them all before Christmas! Things are looking up :-)
I'd just like to take this moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope you have a wonderful time with those you hold near and dear.
Thank you for your continued support and I'm look forward to sharing lots more with you in the upcoming weeks and months xxx

Two Styles of Acetate Boxes For Christmas

Hello there,
I hope your Christmas preparations are going well? I have just a few more nights at work and a little house work to do before I can slow down a bit and enjoy the celebrations! But, the presents are wrapped and I feel like I'm getting there, slowly....
So, I think this may be my penultimate post for Christmas makes on here (unless I find something else I've forgotten about) and its a fun and easy couple of makes today making two different Acetate Boxes feel a little more festive. You could decorate these first, Tiny Treat Boxes, for the Christmas Day table as they are super quick to decorate with any festive DSP you have at home. For mine I used the cute Christmas Around the World paper...
I simply wrapped a strip of the paper around the outside of the boxes and filled them with celebrations choccies :-)
I added a layer of garden green card under a square of the paper and topped them with a mini gold glitter deer from the Card front Builder Dies.
And for the second box I used one of the Acetate Card Boxes and simply dry embossed it with the snowflake embossing folder (sadly it appears this is now sold out) but you can try this with any of your 11.4 x 15.7 cm (4-1/2" x 6-3/16" ) sized folders, extending this to something you can make all year round. 
It makes a lovely and quick way to package some cards (or chocolates or smellies etc....) as a gift :-)
Well, That's all from me for today,
I'll be back soon with those last Christmas makes!
'Till then, happy stamping :-)

Large Letter Baby Card for Laike

Hello there!
How are your Christmas preparations going?  I have been pedal to the metal this week and finally finished the wrapping and the posting today... I hope! I don't know about you but I always have that nagging worry that I've forgotten something/someone even though I have lists for daaaays!
In other news have you seen the CLEARANCE RACK has been updated with loads of fabby products including dies, ink pads and lots of twine and ribbon (my favourite accessory), hurry and take a peek before the good stuff goes...
So, today's card is the baby card I sort of mentioned in THIS POST last week when I talked about these personalised cards being keepsakes! Baby Laikes mum told me she wants to frame this card for him. It made my day, that did :-))))
So, I went with a slightly different colour combo for this card. Rather than pastels that are usually associated with baby cards I used the Garden Green heart paper from Coffee Break DSP and teamed it with navy. I really think it turned out awesome (can I say that??) Take a look and let me know what you think...
I used stampin blends in Crumb Cake and Navy to colour these stripes on this (retired) baby vest. One of just a few stamp sets I have kept after it retired :-)
Instead of foam strips (which are fab, especially for speed) I decided to die cut the letters three extra times and layer them together for extra impact!
Psst! This yummy navy twine is in the clearance rack ;-)
All finished off with a few enamel stars.
So, what do you think? Yay or Nay? I'd love to know... You can leave me a message in the comments...
OK well that's all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by at this crazy busy time of year, I appreciate it so much xxx
I'll be back soon with more! :-)
