Mass production...

This year I have promised myself that I will get all my Christmas Cards made in good time.
(fingers crossed) 

Mass production has begun!! I absolutely love this reindeer stamp from Mulberry Wood and he is proving to be very colour versatile.

All the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured using Promarkers.

Adult Reindeer : Walnut, Chestnut , Spice & Honeycomb
Child Reindeer : Chestnut, Spice & Honeycomb
Antlers : Saffron & Vanilla
Log : Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna & Vanilla
Trees : Pine, Grass, Leaf
Light bulbs - True Blue, Emerald, Gold, Poppy
Snow Accent - Pastel Blue

Papers are from Bearlymine and Mulberry Wood CD and the sentiment is from Stampin Up!

For a bit of extra bling, I have used the Tonic snowflake punch and some glitter glue.

I'm sure many friends will be receiving these adorable designs this year!!

Simple Christmas Cards

On Saturday, myself and Peppa sat down to design some simple Christmas Cards that could be used in a pack. The plan was for each pack to contain enough card/embellishments to make up 5 of each design and include a stamp/stamp set. This is what we have come up with so far....

Kit 1                  Black and White Dasher

This kit is just £10 and comes complete with an instruction sheet and Dasher stamp.

Kit 2           Snowflake Wreath

This kit is £20, comes complete with instruction sheet and Snowflake stamp set (4 stamps included)

Kit 3    Polar Party Tags

This kit is £24, comes complete with instruction sheet and Polar Party stamp set (9 stamps included)

The stamp sets used here are from Stampin Up!. Peppa is our local demonstrator, who will process the orders and have available usually within 7 days. You can place an order by calling 01132523151 or email

I will be bringing some Mulberry Wood Kits to you very soon!!

Happy Crafting.

Its all gone purple in here...

The card making has been a little slow this week due to the severity of my back pain. Unfortunately, the only solution is to increase my meds, which spaces me out a little (or a lot if you ask my husband!). But I am not one to be defeated and have been battling on to make some lovely purple cards. I do try to use other colours, but I always come back to my trusted favourite...

Who says poppies have to be red???

and this one I made for myself....well I persuaded my sister to give it to me for my birthday!

My good friend and local Stampin Up! demonstrator Peppa Knights will be joining me on Saturday for a Christmas crafting session. The wait is killing me, as I am itching to get all the Christmas stamps out and have a play. So, watch this space for some Christmas Creations and Special Offers.

I'll keep this brief as the new Mulberry Wood Stamps have arrived this morning and I must crack on. I'll post some designs soon.

Happy Crafting

Wednesday, 4 July 2012 I got a little side tracked!

I did start playing with the new LOTV stamps I received, but the pull of Christmas was just too great! You know when ideas are in your head, you just have to let them out, well, today was like that. 

Not to disappoint, here is the LOTV card first:
such a cute little bear!

....and then the Christmas brain kicked in...

                                                                                     I have made this as a double sided window decoration, but it did start giving me ideas for Christmas cards, Tree decorations, gift tags.......oh the possibilities!!
The images are Kanban Winter Wonderland and Happy Christmas. The Snowflakes & Letters are from Stampin Up! (available through a demonstrator) and I have used distress inks around the edges.

Now I must go and prepare for tomorrows coffee morning or I will be in trouble!!
