Fresh Cut Florals

I shared this card over at the My Mum's Craft Shop blog on Monday, so I thought I'd pop it on my blog too :)


 My Mum's Craft Shop will be stocking products from this fantastic company VERY soon!!

Here's a little project I whipped up to whet your appetite using
and the

I used a bunch of Memento, Versamagic and Stampin Up! inks to create these florals. The fantastic thing about this stamp set is the ability you have to create layers within just one flower. 


A very fun set to sit in front of a film with. Die cut a bunch of the flowers, grab your inks and go to town with the gorgeous stamps!

Thanks for looking. xx

Mistletoe Wishes

Good morning guys! Some more DigiStamp Boutique goodness for ya! Christmas style - of course!

I coloured this gorgeous, traditional image, using my ProMarkers and fussy cut around the frame. I added it atop a simple embossed red panel which I embellished with Liquid Pearls and some grosgrain and organza ribbon. Job done! :)

Thanks for stopping by today. xo

Frosty Snowflakes

Snowflakes, snowflakes, snowflakes. I love me some snowflakes. I had to use two older My Favorite Things stamp sets from last year to create these two cards.

I used three colours of ink from Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum and Bashful Blue. They work so well together. I added a Bashful Blue matt before adhering the card front to the card base using dimensional adhesive. 

As for the sentiment I embossed it in silver onto some vellum and attached it to the card using some silver brads! Super easy card to replicate!

November!! I know!! Where has the time gone?! 

I'm definitely feeling festive almost 24/7 now. What with Halloween gone from work and Christmas totally taking over the shelves, and glitter covering the craft room floor at home it's all snowflakes and jingle bells from here on out!

It's CHRISTMAS TIME!! I'm just waiting for the flurries of snow.


Apologies for the super wonky picture. I don't know what the hell happened there.. but I am still in love with this penguin from DigiStamp Boutique.

I coloured him using ProMarkers and gave him a vibrant red scarf to match my papers from a way old Basic Grey paper pack. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from Amy R stamps and cut it using an Xcut die before adding it to the card using the worlds smallest button brads!

Pretty CAS for me, but I do like making these type of cards when I have a lot on! Thanks for stopping by. xo

That Craft Place November Release

Good evening you lovely lot! I totally forgot to get my little blog post typed up last night in time to coincide with the blog post at 9am over at That Craft Place.

We have a huge new release today, and the DT have been working their butts off to bring you a whole load of gorgeousness with the new stamps. Be sure to stop by That Craft Place blog to see their creations.. This is also Boss Lady Lisa's birthday, and to celebrate she is offering 50% off at checkout.

I created two cards, first up was SUGAR PLUM.
I love this girl! Her dress was a blast to colour up, so I thought I'd stick with the traditional reds. I created some depth on her wings with some Warm Greys and added a ton of Frosted Stickles over them. I used some yummy new Echo Park papers, some vellum die cuts and some big old satin ribbon to create a big old bow before adding an Amy R sentiment to the knot.

I absolutely love colouring this duo! I want a reindeer onesie just like this! Again I went for traditional colours but matched them up with an older Echo Park paper pack. I added a bunch of Whimsy Tickets, a Kaisercraft sentiment and a bunch of twine and Stickles.

Be sure to get your butts over to That Craft Place Etsy Shop to pick up your

Frosty Fun

This little card was part of a competition I ran on my FB page not too long ago. It was loved, and I hope the lucky winner either gifts this or displays it proudly on her windowsill or mantelpiece come the festive season. 

LOVE this little scene. 

I used a little image from a coloured pad by LOTV to create this card. I cut a stepper card template on my cameo and decorated it using a little slice of old Basic Grey paper as well as some gorgeous striped ribbon. I stamped an Amy R sentiment and adhered that near the bottom of the card.

The holly die is from Wild Rose Studios. LOVE it! Gonna spend an hour or so running that through my faithful old Bug and get a whole stash sorted! 

Thanks for stopping by! xo
