I have just been having a sort out and come across a couple of cards i have not posted on my blog. The owl card has been made using one of Little Claire Designs, it is one of my fav designs from them.  The lily card image is a stamp from Dimension Stamps, it is quite a big stamp but it has so many possibilities.  I think its a shame sometimes that we use a stamp and then put it away and forget all about it, we should use them more often.

Background Papers

Good evening, just wanted to share with you two of the cards we made on Saturday. My first card was made using one of the new Memory Box dies 'Princess Dress'. The second card was made using assorted background papers cut out using a square punch, and the dragonfly is a Memory Box die.

Class Cards

Just wanted to share a couple of cards with you that i made about two weeks ago on one of our Saturday classes. I used an old Hero Arts stamp, on my first card, i stamped the image with Versamark then heat embossed with white embossing powder, then i spritzed Adirondak ink and water onto a plastic sheet, i then took the embossed piece of card and gently moved it over the ink till it was covered with the ink, once dried i cut the image into 3 pieces and mounted the card up. For my second card i used a LOTV stamp, and coloured it in with Promarkers. The flourish die is my new Memory Box die.

Make and Take cards

Another late posting again tonight, these next two cards are two we made on our make and take class. I just love the little bear stamp from LOTV it is so cute, and so easy to colour. My other card was made using a triangle and heart punch, i put on a happy anniversary greeting, but you could easily make it into a Valentines card.

Hello, such a long time since i have blogged, just wanted to share with you a couple of cards i made for Dimension Stamps. They launched a new range of stamps called 'Nina Crafts' on Create and Craft last Friday. My first card was made using the stamp set 'Ribbons and Twirls', it is a lovely girly stamp set, and it stamps beautifully. My second card was made using the new stamp set called 'Boys Toys'.

Dimension Stamps - Sew Creative

Good evening everyone, this must be a record for me two posts in 2 days. I wanted to just show you a concertina book i made for Roy from Dimensions Stamps, a friend of mine took a picture of the book before we sent our designs, and i have only just got the pictures.  This is one of my favourite sets from Dimension Stamps, and i can see me using it quite a lot, especially with materials as i have used below.

Christmas Cards

Good evening, just wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made for our Christmas classes.  I never seem to get much time to blog these days, there is always something i have got to catch up with, but I will try and post and blog more often. 


The first card was made using a Little Claire stamp, I think this stamp is so cute. The second card is a LOTV stamp i bought from Port Sunlight Stamp Festival in October.
