Polka Dot Bow Ties


How simple is this?  Bish Bash Bosh and one masculine card done in record time! 

I made these sweet little bow ties using the Bow Builder Punch.   The patterned papers are from a retired neutrals paper stack.  The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations and stamped in Basic Grey. The mat is Very Vanilla on a card base of Basic Black.

This is perfect for Less is More this week which has a recipe of polka dots. 

A little reminder that tomorrow is the last day of Sale-A-Bration so grab yours whilst they are still here! 

Look what my son made this evening.  Ninja gingerbread men!  How cool are these?  His sister helped with the icing.  Unfortunately I can't have any.  :(

Party Pants for Less is More


Party Pants is a new addition to the Sale-A-Bration stamps.  You may have noticed that there were some limited edition stamps in the leaflet, well this is one of the new sets only available until end of Sale-A-Bration.

If you like sentiments then this one could be for you. 

I've used it very simply here for the Less is More which is one layer week with the focus on the sentiment.  And for one layer the Whisper White Thick card stock is just fab.

Here's the run down -

I stamped the balloon and string in Wisteria Wonder.  Then stamped the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant. It fits perfectly.  The tassle is stamped in Perfect Plum.  The confetti was stamped off twice in Rose Red before stamping onto the card. 

I then reached for my new favourite tool.  You have to get one of these!  My Wink of Stella Brush!  I got the clear so you can still see the colour underneath.  I added the glitter to the balloon, hassle and confetti. It's so easy to use and so precise. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Happy Mother's Day




Happy Mother's Day.

Love to all you wonderful Mum's out there. 

This is the card that I made for my Mum.  I tried out a new technique.  This is a window swing card.  Not sure if that's the correct name for it.  Here's a couple of pics showing how it works. 



She was absolutely delighted with it.  To be truthful so am I! 

So here's the run down. 

Basic Black card base with a mat of Gold Foil.  Added a panel of Painted Petals Designer Series Paper (retired). 

Love these large blooms and just perfect for Mother's Day. 

Die cut a window using Window Framelits and set aside cut outs for later. 

Made the middle with Whisper White card stock folded into a Z fold.  Stamped a border around the edges with Painted Petals (retired).  Glued the right hand section to the card base. 

Used a smaller framelit to cut a Whisper White panel. Stamped a little flower arrangement. Sentiment is from Crazy About You.  Added a mat of Gold Foil trimmed using Paper Snips. 

Glued the cut out window pieces together.  Added the stamped panel.  With card closed and inside panel folded into a Z, glued the window cut out back into place through the open window. 

Added an extra sentiment panel along the bottom using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Attached flashes of Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon and tied off with thick Pistachio Bakers' Twine.

So there you have it.  Quite simple really, but so effective.  Great for those special occasions. 

If you are a Mum, Granny or a Mum to be, hope you are sitting having breakfast in bed whilst reading this! 
Have a lovely day. xx

Thinking of You Sheltering Tree


Mothering Sunday is just around the corner.  I got my card posted off today but of course can't show you that one at the moment.  A certain someone may have a sneaky peak at my blog and that would spoil the surprise.  

This card works easily as a Mothering Sunday, birthday or indeed a sympathy card. 

It shows off the absolutely beautiful Sheltering Tree and the sentiment simply reads as thinking of you from the same set. 

I've used a card base of Perfect Plum with a mat of Wisteria Wonder and the gorgeous patterned paper from Something Borrowed.  Not just for weddings huh?  

The featured square has a mat of Blackberry Bliss and panel of Whisper White.  The tree is stamped in Perfect Plum for the foliage and Basic Grey for the trunk.  Sahara Sand grounds the tree.  

Pear Pizzaz ribbon and bow finishes off the card with a flag tag sentiment stamped in Soft Sky, popped up on Dimensionals.

Hope all you Mum's, Granny's, Mum's to be, have a lovely weekend!
