Caseing - Copy and share everything!

Happy Sunday everyone!  I'm sure with the run-up to Christmas everyone must have a mountain of "to do" lists.

Like "Marmite", Always Artichoke isn't the colour of choice for some people.  I guess you can say that about any colour - there will always be someone who will dislike it or love it.  It's in the Regal family, so there are rich undertones of green - you could almost say that it's a muted green and I have grown to love it because of its subtlety.


I cased this from lovely Monica Gale (thanks Monica), but switched the greeting and ribbon she used.  Only 1/4" border of Champagne foil is visible, so I actually used the trimmer to cut a 1/2" frame from a 5-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of foil and used the centre piece to cut the largest stitched shape circle from it.

The "season's greetings" was gold embossed on foil - that was one of my tips for Top Tip Tuesday and the ornament was coloured with a Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin' Blend marker to give it that gold glow to match the gold edged ribbon.

Here are the materials I used - click on the pictures and it will take you directly to the item in my online store should you wish to make a purchase.  I would  appreciate your custom  so much so thank you in advance.  Remember to use the Host Code for December MXU6UZRR

Hearts Come Home Gift Tags

Did you notice that sweet little detail in the Hometown Greetings Edgelits die cutting set?  There's a little heart cut out to thread your ribbon through and I love it!

Enjoy the video on how I made these.  Just  one  A4 Sheet makes 8 tags!

24 HOUR FREE SHIPPING TIME REVISED

Sorry folks, if you've seen previous post on FREE SHIPPING.  The Home Office had published conflicting information regarding the time this 24 hour period kicks in.  I have deleted previous post and am re-posting under a new heading with the correct information.  My apologies for the inconvenience.

"Speedy Gonzales"

What with being away, and December coming around so fast, I was time poor with still a long list of "stuff" to  do.  Even with the best plans in the world and working through my list,  I still had last minute things to achieve before my class earlier this week.

One of those was to make Christmas cards for the ladies in my class.  I couldn't use the ones already made because they were either seen before on my video tutorials or I'd done them in class previously with the run up to Christmas. I needed to make a stack of quick simple cards - if only I had the Stamparatus to help, it would've made life a whole lot easier!!!


Back to basics - just simple stamping with Night in Bethlehem and two inks - Soft Sky and Night of Navy. 


I didn't even have time to photograph them properly, so took these with my phone in natural light.

The wonderful thing about stamps is that it does the artwork for you, no fuss, and had I more time I could add layers and embellishments to it.    The best thing about this card is that it is totally flat so it should be post friendly and cost the minimum to post.  When you have so many cards to do at Christmas time, that's got to be a plus, right?

Happy Sunday.  Thanks for stopping by.

Cute Box in a Card

I'm showcasing another project which I taught at card club in December.  They will make great table favours and place name holders at a table setting.  I filled mine with a couple of yummy chocolate truffles with Santa foil wrapping for a festive look.
