Hand Knit Gift Set

Today’s post is a project I made a long long time ago for my mum.  It uses her stamp set Hand Knit (p48 IB&C).  I got the original idea to make this from a similar project made by the talent Bronwyn Eastley.  Here are some more photos:

Happy Birthday

I have been working on this card on and off all last week and I finally got to finish it!  I used the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #59 Sketch:

I loved this sketch when I first saw it but time got away and I didn’t make the deadline to enter a card into the challenge.

I think it is a fabulous sketch so will keep it in my files to use again another time.

I wanted to also share this with you today!  The picture below is my new stamp that my 3 year old daughter decided to cover with powder using the embossing buddy!!

I should know better and pack my things away – although I was sitting right next to her while she did it!  I was concentrating so hard on the card I was making that I didn’t notice until it was too late!

At least the stamp washed up easily.  Cheers Deb

Birthday Wishes

This week I needed to make two cards.  I didn’t have a lot of time so I did a quick blog search for a sketch and found the Clean & Simple: FTL186 sketch for this week:


I had intended to place the butterflies as positioned on the sketch.  However, my son decided to join me just as I was finishing and demanded that he finish off the cards!  Considering he was the one taking them to the twins birthday party I let him, with a bit of guidance, add the butterflies and rhinestones.

I also used a new product from the Autumn-Winter mini on the cupcakes – Vanilla Scented embossing powder – yummy!

The above card uses the Designer Series Paper Berry Blossoms (p129 IB&C) and stamp sets: Create a Cupcake (p36 IBC) and Bring on the Cake (p38 IB&C).

This is the second card using Designer Series Paper: Flirtatious Specialty (p127 IB&C):
