Stamp-a-stack for Christmas

So, yesterday I had another crafty day out which I booked months ago - I went to Jo Dumbleton's Stamp-a-stack down in Dorset.

We made 12 cards, 2 each of the cards below:

Aren't they great?  We used many different stamp sets and punches.  We used embossing folders and framelits on the sizzix, stamping glitter, heat and stick powder, all sorts!

I had a couple of teeny mishaps (only 3 hours sleep wasn't entirely conducive to this) but you probably wouldn't notice and I am too much of a perfectionist.

My favourite card, no surprises if you know me, is this one:

I love it!  And have already made a couple more penguins.  This little chap is constructed from a combo of Stampin' Up punches.  I'll take a pic of the card inside for later in the week - and maybe see if you've worked out where everything comes from!!

Also have to report that for once my Mum did not win a raffle prize.
But I did!!!  Still not got the star prizes and this time I was drawn last so got what no one else wanted - still a prize though.

Off for a couple of days in the spa now so back soon with some more updates.


  1. Looks like you had a great day Jill...what a lovely selection of cards you made...the penguin is my favourite also


  2. That was certainly a productive day out and an interesting selection of cards - love the penguin, hopefully I can work out the punches used. Congratulations on winning a raffle prize.

  3. Gorgeous Christmas cards they are designs are very traditional but thats what most people prefer, they are just stunning. hugs Shirleyxxxx

  4. Sounds like you had a great day Jill - you certainly produced loads of great cards. Definitely love your penguin. Hope you're enjoying your spa days.
