A Touch of Christmas…

Hi there – sorry this is a picture heavy post


I used a CAS layout which came together quickly with the use of 1 1/4″ and 1 3/8″ square punches. I stamped my chosen images from Annabelle Stamps Merry Messages with SU Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Colorbox Heliotrope and Versa Color Indigo and punched out with the smaller of the punches. I then layered these onto matching card stock punched using the larger square. Once these were placed on the card front I stamped the sentiment in Memento tuxedo black. The sentiments are from Annabelle Stamps Merry Messages and Christmas Tree Trio and MFT Seasonal Sentiments.

I made 5 of each colour and alternated with 5 sentiments. So each colour has one of each sentiment.

 Miss A has her eyes on these for her teachers and friends.

Here is a close up of some of the cards

Do you have a favourite Christmas colour?

Playing with Hexagon Shape

Hi all. Been a little quiet here on the blog – Sorry.  I have planned to play with so much…

Any way I did find time to play and I made this set of three cards



In this one I have used the embossing folder like a stamp. I saw this on a video somewhere. I inked the embossing folder put in my cardstock and used a brayer to lightly get the ink on the cardstock.  Finished off with a sentiment and some ribbon.


For this I randomly stamped straight onto my card front leaving a little space for the sentiment.


This last one I stamped my images and then punched them out. The sentiment was stamped straight onto my card front and the punched shapes added around it.

I have used Stampin UP! six sided sampler, label something, espress yourself, honeycomb embossing folder, matching punch and ink in coastal cabana and smoky sky along with memento tuxedo black, pool party ribbon and coastal cabana cardstock.

If you have been following you may remember I started a quilt some time ago for Miss S. Well it is progressing. I have the binding to finish off. I tried using my treadle sewing machine to do the quilting. I need a bit more practice – I think I will stick to quilting in the ditch my lines aren’t all that straight!


Hope you are having a good week.
