Wonderful Christmas

Every year I buy more Christmas stamps etc because I will be more organised, every year it's still always last minute and I haven't used lots again!

Not that I have been sitting around doing nothing mind you but I have made some progress in the last couple of days.

This card could pretty much qualify to appear on JillStampsUp but I didn't use all SU products and as I've done quite a lot of SU stuff recently I seem to have less on this blog!

I've used a great stamp set called Wondrous Wreath which is a two-step stamp.  I've stamped the bottom layer in pear pizzazz ink, the second layer which highlights some leaves in garden green and then added some berries.

This is then cut out with a matching framelit, the bow is also in the set.

These are mounted on a top-note sizzix die which is stamped with a sentiment in real red from the same set.

I have made 18 of these, written and ready for posting now so a good job done.
Now to sort some commissions!!

A new arrival wood

No quilling today but another quick baby card.  Similar to cards I have posted before but just so you know I am still going!

I've been a bit too busy on the Jill Stamps Up side of things recently.

This is yet another of my huge words stamps from Woodware.

I've used some papermania paper from my stash to paper piece in the letters, layered on co-ordinating card and finished with gems and a ribbon.

Simple but effective!

Happy 10th Birthday

Still not enough hours in the day for blogging - sorry again!

I have been busy crafting though.

I'm struggling with light to take pictures in as well at this time of year so sorry the pic is a little dark!

This is a card for my niece who is 10 tomorrow.

I have some number stencils that I drew round and cut out for the base (card is A5 to give idea of scale).  I've then decorated the numbers using a couple of flower Stampin' Up sets with matching punches using both pink and white card.

Sentiment and matching punch are also SU and a few extra flowers and some sparkly gems to finish.

I bought Maisie some Hobbycraft goodies for her birthday which was a fun shop to be able to buy things I'd of loved when I was that age (or even now to be honest!!).
