Mystery stamping 1

So as most people are stuck in the house and limited to the social contact they can have with others a group of us decided to go virtual with our online card class, each week we take it in turns to design a card and show the others how to make it, however there’s a twist! We don’t know what we are making until it’s done! As we don’t all have the same supplies we are given basic instructions which just list supplies needed including sizes. So this weeks card came with the following instructions

Base layer in white card measuring
4 1/4 x 8 inches
White card measuring 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 &. 1 1/4 x 5 1/2

Coloured card measuring 1 x 5 1/4 number required 1
Same colour measuring 1 x 4 number required 4
Same colour measuring 2 3/4 x4 number required 1

Co ordinating ink to stamp on coloured card (darker colour than coloured card )

Stamped image to either die or hand cut no bigger than 2 – 2 1/2 inches high x 3 inches long
Sentiments stamps ,coloured pens / pencils
Score board .glue & dimensionals

The only other instructions needed were to score the base card on the long side at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2 and 6 3/4

And this is what we managed to make… you will notice on some of the cards I’ve changed the coloured card for dsp it’s a very versatile design. Thanks for the ideas Sharon!

Throwback Thursday

Sometimes you find something in your stash that although retired deserves another outing… I love this set and really hope there is something like it again soon. I’ve mixed my trusty wise men from afar stamp with the brightly gleaming dsp which I love, i think this pattern is my favourite, what do you think?

Christmas doesn’t have to be red and green

I always think of christmas cards as being red and green but today’s project is definitely not that. I used the gorgeous feels like frost paper which is photographic on one side and foiled on the other along with the perfectly plaid set.

Team retreat goodies

In September I went to the fabulous Pootlers team retreat in Birmingham and one of my favourite projects from the weekend was this set of cards. I wouldn’t have chosen this set at first glance but its so versatile and I was very lucky to receive it from our upline Sam Hammond-Donald of Pootles Papercraft. With very little effort and a few colours you can make these wonderful cards which would make a lovely gift set for anyone don’t you think?
