Sit down with a cuppa and take it all in – there is lots to study and decisions to be made!!!!



Sorry for not posting recently – I’ve been very busy creating and you will see the results very soon!

Background Stamps

I’ve been having some fun creating some quick cards using the Stampin’Up! smaller sized background stamps.

 For a quick and easy background to your main stamped feature these great stamps are ideal. There are four different smaller background stamps available and I have examples here using three of them. The Pumpkin Pie card uses “A to Z”, the Baja Breeze card uses “Solid Stripes” and the Pear Pizzazz card (Looks more like Sage Shadow from the retired colours the way the colour has come out!) uses ” Fine Flourish”

They really do make making a card so easy especially if thinking of doing multiples like this Christmas card. Just stamp the background, add the greeting and then stamp your chosen image on neutral card, punch it out and adhere with Dimensionals, embellish and your card is done! Toooooo easy!!!!

The ornament stamp is from “Tags til Christmas”. the greeting is from Curly Cute.

Thanks for looking!

A Couple More Box Cards to Inspire You!

Where does the week go to! I really thought I had posted an entry during the week, obviously I must have dreamt it!!!! I know I worked an extra shift this week and that always bites into my available stamping and blogging time and addled my brain I think! 

This week saw my technique classes taking place and I just had to show you what we created. I was so impressed by the cards made by the ladies attending. The cards below are ones I made to give them ideas and they took off with them and created some lovely box cards.

This first one I LOVE! I’ve been wanting to get this stamp set for so long and just knew after receiving a swap using this set at Convention that the time had come to order it!  The set is “Up, Up and Away”. I was so pleased with how this card turned out. In class one of my customers recreated it in black and grey with a black card main base and it looked terrific!

The box card below I made as a class idea and then thought what a great wedding card it would make for my cousin who is getting married next weekend.  It is elegant with out being over the top.

Here it is closed with the belly band around it.The image is from the Mixed Bunch stamp set. This set has been so popular with my customers along with the matching  Blossom punch.

I hope you enjoy creating your own box cards. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know how your creations turned out.
