New promotion

Starting tomorrow, Dec 30th, till January 24th, Stampin' Up have a new promotion. If you click on the Valentine Sweethearts image on my right hand side bar you will see the flyer with all the details. You can get a free set of "Heart Treat Cups" with each qualifying purchase.

For something completely unrelated............... I wanted to also post this card I made in early December for my Dad's birthday. At the time I was in full "Christmas projects" mode and even though I made the card, it didn't get posted on here. People are always looking for inspiration for male cards. You can just see the star background that I stamped with versa mark. I multicoloured the greeting with markers and I loved the way it turned out.

If there is something in particular you'd like to see on my blog, please leave a comment and let me know.

The Final Countdown!

This week I thought I'd share with you some of the cards that I have been receiving from my lovely friends/customers. It is always such a buzz to not only open a hand made card, but to see that it's been made with Stampin Up products!!!! And these are just wonderful. I'll be back between Christmas and New Year with our new promotion starting Dec 30th. Don't forget the December Frenzy though, you can still order from this till Dec 30th if stock hasn't run out. I hope you all have a fabulous festive season.

2 weeks to go!

Quick post today with the obvious reason- there is ONLY 2 weeks to go! My above cards are a variation on a card I did earlier in the countdown. It is so easy to create a variety of cards using the same basic layout. Here I just changed the image, and with the "Dasher" card I turned the card the other way and added a punched greeting. Still all the same size pieces which make it quick when making lots of cards at once. See my piles of cards below I have been adding to each day. Get a production line going and you'll have heaps of cards to send out in no time at all. One of these may even be heading to your place!!

3 weeks to go!

With only three weeks to go and only 1 full week of school left before the kids are let loose 24/7, we are in desperate need of quick and easy Xmas projects. These cards are perfect for that! They only use 1 piece of CS so they're economical as well! I just went through my stamps and found various small images that I thought could work for a wreath. Some are from Circle circus, the spiral is from Trendy Trees. Then I just grabbed my markers and randomly started stamping. The greeting is from Curly Cute, one of our new sets of stamps which I just love. You can see below where I turned the card around and then using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, stamped the greeting as 2 words on top of each other.

The last feature I'll point out is the BLING! If you look closely you should be able to see on the spirals I added some Crystal effects and then put some chunky sprinkles over the top. Too easy!
