Serene Razzleberry Snowflakes #3

I think this one was the easiest of them all, four equal size panels and a greeting banner. You could make just this type from your A4 sheet and it would take you next to no time.

Thankd for looking,

Serene Razzleberry Snowflakes #2

Here's another card, using the other triangle panel from card number 1.

This time I made a flower and used the Decorative Label Punch for the greeting. The backing for the greeting was two punched panels which I then cut in half, one lengthways and one widthways.

Another easy peasy card, I'll show you another one next time (hope you don't get bored with them).

Take care,

Serene Razzleberry Snowflakes #1

Having loved the card I made last week, I had to make some more! This time I took an A4 sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the Serene Snowflakes all over in Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso and finally Champagne Mist Glimmer Paint.

I then cut several panels out of the sheet. This technique is called "One Sheet Wonder" as you use a whole sheet of patterned paper (home made or DSP) and make a stack of cards. This is great if, like me, you have loads of cards to make.

I started off with an Early Espresso card base, I cut a triangular panel and a star, layered them onto Rich Razzleberry CS and added a snip of Rich Razzleberry Striped ribbon. I then added the greeting banner. I used a square punch to cut the ends of the banner, layering it on Early Espresso then Rich Razzleberry.

The star was finished off with a button, once you've done the pattered paper it's amazing how quickly you can make this card.

Razzleberry Snowflakes

Once I received the free gift that was available last month I just had to use some of the gorgeous ribbon!

I started off with a card base of Rich Razzleberry, a panel of Early Espresso, then a smaller panel of Very Vanilla.

The Very Vanilla panel was first stamped with the saying (or could be a greeting), then I got busy with the snowflakes! Rich Razzleberry ink is a lovely strong colour, but you can get several shades of the colour by "stamping off" onto scrap paper before your project to get the lighter shade. This is what I did with the Rich Razzleberry and Early Espresso inks, together with Pretty in Pink. I also used some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint for just a hint of sparkle.

All that was needed was a lovely big bow!

I'm going to be making more of these in loads of other colours, they're so easy.

Thanks for looking,

Post-it Note & Label Holder #1

Another little gift idea, the colour combo was taken from the printed post-it notes and labels I found in "The Works" stationery shop. I used Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi.

I used the dimensions of the post-its and labels to determine the size (the labels work out a little wider by the way). I can get three of these holders from an A4 piece of card, so they're great for craft fayres.

You can decorate them anyway you like, I chose a punched and layered flower and a nice saying (check it out, so true!).

Thanks for looking,
