I can't help using this stamp I think I will be doing most of my cards with this one it is so versatile loads of different ways to put it onto a card, use snow burst snowflake stamps and stamped my own background paper silver ink onto black card i wished i had embossed it, never mind something else to try for another card. Dasher onto white card them snowflake stamped again with silver, then mounted it onto red card just to lift it. Ribbon and gems from my wee stash, well it is wee compared to Kath's ....

Diamond Wedding

Diamond Wedding Card, I made what an achievement lasting 60 years, some dont even last 6 years. Used stampin up bridal papers, x cut punches for the borders and corners and a sizzix embossing folder cut hearts out with nesties (Lily's) when I had a shot of them new that hearts would come in handy and just love them done with the bridal papers. Added pearls and gems to jazz it up. This card looks better when you see it for real.

Not done much crafting today decided to tidy the craft room oh me........ what I thought would take and hour or so took me all day but I still managed to squeeze in dasher, backing paper from kanban and ribbon from my stash I stamped the black backing paper then embossed with silver cut out snowflakes and stamped sentiment then glitzed up with the good old glamour dust and gems.

More Baubles

Same idea as the last card but did it a different way round and used spotty ribbon. Quick cards to make but effective.


Again used stampin up products here, love these papers its a shame they are reversible because you want to use both sides its a shame to stick one side to the card. Quite like this choc brown, green and red colours together.

Church view

Have been busy busy with xmas cards this week used all stampin up products for this card except navy card,ribbon and gems, really like this stamp so im sure there will be lots of these made does for anybody really versatile.

Cute Wee Girly

Another card using the kanban toppers used the papers, ribbons and candy all from stash a quick card but cute.

Cute Girly

Kanban topper for this one cute wee girly, perfect for granddaughter , xmas papers from stash and punched out snowflakes, used SU border punch and ready made bow was easier than trying to tie one.

More Baubles

This is the same topper as the last one but used the cuttlebug baubles folder and mounted the topper onto mirri card and used soft suede ribbon and craftworks candy


Used kanban toppers for this card quite liked the subtle colours, used cuttlebug embossed border for the side and gems and ribbon from stash, glitzed with the good old glamour dust.


This card certainly gave my stress levels a boost.. Bought this paper in Elgin really liked it and wanted to put just a snowflake on it just to lift it, well that was the easy bit, then cut a border with Martha Stewart snowflake , and ribbon from stash and craftworks candy, but what about the sentiment well I tried 4 different stamps and i printed some on my computer but didn't like any of them so I had to fall back on the good old peel offs, hardly use them now but nothing else looked right. Thankfully all my cards aren't as stressful to make or what a mess I'd be in or the old gin bottle would get laldy....

Oh Deer !!

Fancied choc brown & cream for a change of xmas card, quite pleased with the result. Used deer stamp from papermania and Kars gems in brown ,glitzed the deers antlers with gems and glamour dust, ribbon from bee crafty and used fuskars border punch.

Embossed Tree

Quick xmas card with the cuttlebug embossing folder, glitzed up with different coloured gems. Backing paper from papercraft and candycraft for corners. Xmas greeting from bee crafty

Green Snowflake

Just the same card but it is open. Quite like this style and its just different from the plain square.

Xmas Snowflakes

Well so much for going to Elgin and not buying any crafty goodies, these stamps fell into my basket and they were like a magnet to me when I tried to come out of the shop.... so I just had to have them. Merry Christmas stamp and the green backing paper were from bee crafty and the snowflake one was from inkadinkadoo, from papercraft they were great value 6 different snowflakes in the pack. The gems were from my little stash. Not sure if I need something in the right hand corner or not. What do you think ????? I have paper clipped my card together so you could see it properly. I will post the card open as well.
