A Huddle of Snowmen

Last card for today. This one is one I very nearly forgot! I have used the scribble snowman again - can you tell i like him? This time I stamped him 3 times and cut one out - yet again he is coloured with water coloured pencils. The snow on his hat is made with stickles for a nice sparkly finish - just cause I like sparkle

Christmas Tag Card

My eldest son doesn't send many Christmas cards so when he asked if I would make him one for his friends I couldn't really say no. This is another card made with mainly Brenda Pinnick elements. With the addition of rub on leters for the names.

Christmas ATCs

More Christmas today - must be coming to an end!! This time some ATCs for friends - one made with good old house mouses coloured in with water coloured pencils. The next on was made with good old scribble snowman and some added snow!
I hope they like them.

London Treat

A card for an order today - I was provided with the poem and just had to make the card around it. Though it doesn't look very Christmasy I really like it - maybe thats why!!

Father Christmas

****Happy Christmas****

Found a few spare minutes today inbetween wrapping presents and writing cards to make a quick challenge page! Father Christmas was the challenge so fairly easy - I coloured the stamp board and the back of the page with cherry pink stazon. Then stamped the sants and words in black stazon. To finish the page i punched holes with my cropodile and put eyelets and fibre in them.

Black ATC

Here is an ATC to go with Black is Black fat book page! This is for an ATC Challenge "butterflies and dragonflies" so while i had the butterfly stamp out i thought i would make good use of him! This time i embossed him in with holographic embossing powder.

Ghostly Christmas

This Christmas card I have made for the designer of the ghost stamp! I think she might be a bit suprised to see he still exsists. I embossed him with seafoam white embossing powder to make look snowy.

Black is Black

Long time no play ! Today took a few minutes off from Christmas things and made a fat book page I have promised someone. This page is very black as you can see - i hope the detail will show on the picture! I stamped the images with versamark and embossed it in clear.

Sparkle cards!

Two cards made for an order and a chance to play with my cricut. Christmas tree and name were cut with cricut. On the christmas card I used rub-ons for the words and names.

Christmas Album 2007

I had a short break from cardmaking and fat book making yesterday and did the cover of a small Christmas album instead. The album and most of the embellisments are from a Brenda Pinnick kit. Now all i need to do is fill the inside!

Good Luck

Here is a good luck foldy thing I made for Linda as she was going to start a new job!I decided to use browns and creams

The letters were cut on a cricut then they were stuck onto a square that I had stamped with a twig design stamp(another one of lindas designs)I stamped words that I thought appropriate for a new job

Lion page and some Snowflakes

After spending a day at Hobbycrafts at the NEC I have got some more inspiration which is a good as I had been struggling for a few days to produce anything at all!!

I am taking part in a regular 3 for 3 swap so I made one lion page and 2 snowflake pages and here they are.

My lion page was made by stamping the lion (another stamp by designed by Linda!)I then coloured him in with watercolour pencils. I added a crown to his head cause he is the King of the jungle after all. Finally I fought with my copper Krylon pen and made a right old mess (I think it is coming to the end of it's useful life) think I managed to mop up most of the mess luckily!

My snowflake page is very simple just a quote stamp by Butterfly Kisses embossed with red sparkle embossing powder by Imagepac and large snowflakes embossed on the background. Finishing touches of a red brad and red ribbon were then added.

I luckily found a small christmas pudding stamp . Pages were finished off with copper dabber around the edges.

Today as well as finishing all my snow man pages - 22 in all! I made a RAK page I promised someone. The house mouse was stamped with brown stazon then was coloured in with water colour pencils. I then went round the edges of the page with a gold dabber. A little white ribbon was added across the corner to finish it off.

Nib page

This is an alphabet page I made N is for Nib! The background was made with dabbers. Then a small piece of stampboard was coloured to match. Tim Holtz nib stamp was used and stampboard was placed on the matching nibs.

Snowmen pages

I have 21 stamped snowman pages to make! I have eventually made a start first ones are stamped with scribble snowman . Scarf and hat were coloured with watercolour pencils then the background stamped with snowflakes. A finishing touch was added with stickles crystal just for an added bit of Christmas sparkle.
My second batch are made with a snowman stamp designed by my friend Linda.He has been done the same way as the other one but his eyes and buttons were made shiny with glossy accents.

christmas fat book page

Another fat book list! This is a Christmas one so I stamed Peace on Earth and embossed it in gold then embossed around the writing. The page was finished off with 3 red brads and a red ribbon. My only problem now is do I make them all the same?

3x3 swap fat pages

Pages for one of many swaps I take part in. I decided to make them all similar to each other.

Nature ATC and fat book page

Today I thought I'd better get up to date with a nature RAK I had promised. So I merrily got on and made a nature ATC only when I had finished it did I realise that it was meant to be a fat book page!!! So I made that too!!

Autumn ATCs

Then stampboard was sprayed too then extra thick embossing powder was added and a leaf stamp pressed into it. Leaves were then stamped on the background with stayzon. Words were then added with bronze embossing powder also round the edges. Hey presto finished!

A Christmas card to have money for a bed and breakfast stay was my next challenge! The initials were cut on my cricut. My big problem was getting the name and greeting onto the front. This was acheived by putting a little envelope and card on.

monkey mask

What a strange request this one was! A card for a woman with a gorilla mask!!!!The mask was made with a cuttlebug die and the words cut with my quickutz. To make the letters stand out more I did little stitches round the with a white gelly roll pen. I hope this is what she had in mind!

best wishes

This is a card I was asked to make for somebody who is leaving to have her second baby. Embellishments are cut with a variety of die cutters

man card

A mans card for a change! A real cheats card this one. But I'm pleased with the way it's turned out.


This is a fat book page (one of two)the same that I made - the crown is stamped with a printing block and the decorated with liquid pearls and gems. I think the quote could be very appropriate especially for me!!!

Another glamourous card today.This card is made with cross cuts dies and rub ons. The happy bithday label is printed on the computer. I do like making the girly cards!

4 year old card

Yet another card I have been asked to make for a little girl! She has a white teddy bear called snowy so this seemed like a very good place to start - I then just tried to make the rest of the card very girly. I hope she likes it.

tis the season

Here is christmas card I have made just for a bit of fun! I used cuttlebug dies to make the snowman and house. For a real snowy feel I added stickles to the snowmans head and the roof of the house


Today I decided it was eventually time to put a couple of things on here! About time too!
First of all a blank card I have been asked for - the only requirement for the card was the butterflies. I made these with fantasy film and a small stamp I got free with a magazine finished off with a little bindi for a little extra sparkle .The white flower was made with a quickutz die.
