Christmas Sneak Peek

So I thought I would share a few cards I have made from the gorgeous new stamps that will be available in the new Christmas Catalogue.  You can begin to purchase from this catalogue from September 1st so not long to wait.

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE glitter at Christmas and this card is all about sparkle.

This was such a quick and easy card to create using the new die set shown below

Another fast favourite of mine is the Hearts Come Home bundle.  You can really let your imagination run riot with this gorgeous set.

I created the card below and used gold glimmer paper to back the buildings to create the illusion of light.

For the card below I followed the very talented Sandy MacIver on her YouTube channel here :

I decided to coat all the white card with Dazzling diamonds to add more sparkle.

I hope I have tempted you to come back and visit on September 1st when I will post a direct link to the catalogue where you can click on my Shop Now button and order some lovelies for yourself.

Until then

Happy Stamping

Blooms and Wishes

Some days I just love to create quick and easy cards.  Cards that don't take too long but look good all the same.  Today was one of those days. It's been very hot in Beijing these past few days and I am very thankful for our air conditioning.

I chose 3 colours for each card and kept it really simple, using the design again on the sentiment piece.

I love this yellow card, it looks so bright and happy

The red flowers on this card are happy too and so different to the one above.  I am going to create quite a few of these cards as they are handy to grab when I need something other than a standard greeting card.  I hope you like them too

Happy Stamping

Flourish Thinlets

I am often asked to create cards with no sentiment on the front and I often struggle with these I feel they can look kind of "naked" without a sentiment.

I have fallen in love with the Flourish thinlets though and to help me get over the lack of sentiment I decided to create some kinds with no stamping on whatsoever!

I love the combination of the gold and Rose Red and the odd use of a diamonte (you can never have too much bling)

I am actually quite happy with how these turned out and I enjoyed not stamping for a while. The Flourish Thinlets come in a bundle with the stamp set but just look what you can make without the stamps!

I am off to play some more.
