One sheet is plenty... he says.....

Anyhoo, how are we all then after the Christmas hols and New Year parties ??  Back into the old routine then, well I am !!

Thought I would share some Thank You cards made using a sheet of A4 card.

 I coloured my A4 sheet with distress inks then stamped some script and swirls on top.

This is the way I cut the card into pieces. You can find many different ways to cut your A4 sheet up on Pinterest.

I used one of the triangle pieces to punch some butterflies out and matching coloured card for the hearts and flowers adding some pearls and lace with sentiment stamps to finish my cards. sheet is really plenty !!

Oh dear we have gone back to grey, dull days.....

never are a couple more thank you cards I've made using a Woodware stamp and new papers by LC Designs.

Just love doing my fussy cutting and paper piecing !!   I've inked my background and then water splatted and then stamped my bird image onto it.

Beautiful day....

We have yet another fab sunny, cold and frosty day here.  It just makes you feel so glad to be alive.....I take each day as it comes and I try to enjoy each day as no one knows what is round the corner....

Yesterday I was playing with a Altenew stamp set called "Beautiful Day"

Can't have enough "Thank You" cards.....

I loved doing all the stamp layering and masking off needed to create these cards !!

The lovely sentiment is from a Stampin Up set and I've used distress inks to stamp and colour.

have you eaten ALL the chocolates ??

Perhaps you would like to make these cabbage roses with the left over papers then !!

 You will need six for each rose.

Pinch in middle and twist three times each paper, then overlap. On a 1 1/2" square of card, glue with glue dots four papers, one each side. then two in middle. crush up a piece of copy paper to make a ball and use last choc paper to wrap round to make centre of rose.

All you need now are your Fiskar's border punches to decorate your parcels !!

The Ribbon Girls: any image in a card

to be naughty....

Sometimes its fun to be naughty.....

Been playing with my Pink Your Life stamps and promarkers. I started with a piece of A4 card and with my airbrush made a dot and spray background using a few of my promarkers.

Then had great fun stamping, colouring and fussy cutting out all the images. great relaxing thing to do when its a dull, dark day......

Next I cut the A4 in half, cutting out a square aperture in one half, mounting this on 3D foam tape to make a raised frame.

Then a way I went with some Sweet Dixie dies and my cure Fiskars bee punch, 3d foam tape, more stamping and some ribbon to create this fun card.
