A Little Wild - So Cute!!!

Have you ever needed really quick, EASY, gift tabs?  Here's something with a little difference!  The stamp combines the front AND back of these little critters - stamp them in coloured card stock and Hey Presto - just die cut and thread some Bakers Twine through and you're done - yes, it's that easy!!!

It's not just for tags, I've included a couple of card samples in the video to show you what's possible. Enjoy the video - blink, and it's finished!





Here's one of the cards.  Isn't the elephant cute?


Here's the inside of the card.  I used the foiled acetate sheets to create the see-through window, and having a "front" and "back" image meant that they perfectly matched and I was able to adhere it with tear and tape without any messy glue.

Coffee anyone?

Some of us are tea drinkers, and some can't start their day without that injection of caffeine first thing in the morning.   Which one are you?  I like both, mostly tea during the day, and coffee after a nice meal but not last thing at night.  Caffeine and I aren't good friends at bedtime and for an insomniac - that spells disaster!  Horror of horrors to true coffee connoisseurs - I ask for decaf!!! (smiles)

I waited so patiently for the Coffee Cafe Bundle to arrive, and when it did, discovered I hadn't ordered the Coffee Break DSP which coordinates with it, so I had to wait before that was ordered and delivered!  Finally, after 3 weeks' waiting I got to play!  

This is the first of many - I hope you like it too.

Tickled Pink!

Good day everyone!  

Is "Tickled Pink" a typically English phrase or is it universal, I wonder?   You'd think I'd know having been married to an Englishman for over 40 years - and English being my mother tongue.  

Anyway, last Saturday I attended an All Day Training session in Locks Heath and was busy making these for a team swap.  On the surface it looks like I only made a few, but there are lots more hidden underneath this pile!  

I wanted something quick and easy to mass produce but the flamingo looked rather lonely on his own so in the interest of aesthetics, muggins decided to mask and stamp another to appear behind!   What I didn't realise at the time was that the body of the flamingo was triple stamping, and the legs were two-step, so each flamingo needed 5 stamps to complete it!  Doh! 

Long story short, it took rather longer than I anticipated to complete all these and I'm quite pleased with the end result.

You're probably wondering which punch I used for the label - it's the new pretty label punch, but I just snipped the top and bottom off and one of the edges to create a smaller label.


Thanks for popping by.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and happy stamping!

A Whole Lot of Lovely

Good Day everyone!  We're  experiencing a heat wave in UK - does this mean summer has finally come?  Are we in for an Indian summer, and dare we hope that it will last till after Wimbledon's over?

It's Fun Friday - and I've decorated this lovely Striped Treat Bag which has gold foil stripes. You can even customise  it further by stamping, brayering or spritzing on the white bits!  Gift packaging made easy and I just adore that super-sized font!  It doesn't matter if you mix silver with gold - you'll find that in the jewellery we wear, in watch straps and all manner of things, so why not apply the same to our gift packaging?   

To co-ordinate the super-sized font instead of a thin tag, I used a quarter of an A4 sheet so it would show off that beautiful embossing with the new Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.  Enjoy the video!

You Move Me!!!

I nearly fell of my chair when they demonstrated how this stamp set works with the coordinating dies!  I love interactive cards and I know my grandchildren will be tickled to see that butterfly go all a flutter!  This is when a video comes into its own - see for yourself and I'm dying to know what you think!  So do leave me a comment!





Suggested Clear blocks to use  are A, B, C, G & D to mount your photopolymer stamps.
