Festive Flurry in Acetate


Oh my goodness I actually used acetate today through choice.  

It's white on white at Less is More with the extra stipulation of Christmas.  

I started with a card base using Shimmer card stock.  I stamped Sassy Salutations and Festive Flurry on a strip of acetate then attached in a split frame.  I stamped one of the snowflakes on spare acetate and fussy cut out and attached with a Dimensional.  A large Basic Rhinestone finishes it off.  The snowflakes were all sprinkled with some Dazzling Diamonds. 

I apologise for the photo folks.  This was the best one after I realised everything was being reflected in the acetate!  It looked like there were smudges and extra ink lines.  You can tell I don't use acetate very much Lol! 

Hope you've had a lovely weekend.  We saw the sun back for a while and boy was it warm!

Take care.  x

Stampin' Up! starter for 25! and a little bit of Magnificent Maple



I'm back with another card using Magnificent Maple.  I make no excuses for showing this stamp again I think it's brill.  

I started by stamping a little of the leaf onto 1" squares of Whisper White then mounted onto the same coloured card.  These have been popped up using Dimensionals onto a Naturals White card stock embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I've then added a sentiment from Four You. 

As I've followed the sketch at CASe This Sketch.  You can see it below.

My card is already winging it's way to Sue who is part of our Card Swap Group.  Her birthday is today so Happy Birthday Sue!  She likes yellows and oranges so perfect for this time of year and an autumnal card.

Back with Magnificent Maple


Oh me what a dreich day!! 

Need a quick translation?  

A combination of dull, overcast, drizzly, cold, misty and miserable weather. At least 4 of the above adjectives must apply before the weather is truly dreich.

I can testify we are definitely hitting all the adjectives! 

But to brighten my day I thought I'd share this little card with you.  This is my thank you card I made for customers last month.  It's using Stampin' Up!'s Magnificent Maple with a combination of Gorgeous Grunge. 

The card base is Early Espresso with a Whisper White mat.  I stamped the maple leaf in Early Espresso then randomly stamped Gorgeous Grunge on top of it in Calypso Coral and So Saffron. I thought the natural look of the Natural Trim Ribbon helped finish it off. 

My Stampers 6 Ladies always receive a little something extra so I added a handbag made with the Petite Purse Bigz Die filled with some sweets.  They also got some hand gel to put in their real handbags! 

I used Calypso Coral card stock and the Epic Day papers as decoration. The button detail was achieved with the Boho Blossoms punch and a retired brad. 


Did you see the news yesterday?  Lots of extras to be had from Stampin' Up!  Have a look to keep up with all the exciting offers. 

I'm off to be nurse maid to my daughter.  She has been sent home from school with a migraine, poor lamb. 

Keep cosy and I hope it's not dreich with you!  x

Autumnal Magnificent Maple




Happy Birthday to me!!  

I've had a lovely day with my Hubby who has spoilt me rotten and the children were up early to give me my pressies then we had a lovely meal after school. 

In amongst all my wonderful surprises I've found some time to have a crafty play and made this card.  It follows the design from Less is More.  You can see this below.

I've started off with a 6" by 6" textured card base.  I added a Whisper White layer with the centre cut out.  I stamped the Magnificent Maple in Cajun Craze, More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy.  Some of the leaves have been stamped off first.  I then added a Brushed Bronze button from my stash with some Crochet Trim Ribbon.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners and stamped in Cajun Craze then attached to a mount of Cajun Craze and popped up on some Dimensionals. 

This card is heading off to one of the ladies in my Card Swap Group where we were challenged to use a theme of Autumn. 

I was flooded today with lots of beautifully handmade cards from the card swap ladies and friends.  I must post them on my blog as they are too amazing not to share.  I feel very guilty as I've missed quite a few of the card swap ladies birthdays so skates on for a catch up and some How do cards instead.  

But before I rush off and forget I must tell you about the exciting news from Stampin' Up! for October.  Did they know it was my birthday??
