Black & White Workshop

On the same night we showed off our challenge cards, we made these two cards.
I'd gone all monochromatic that night, sometimes I find it easier to go that way, it saves me having to think up a colour scheme!

The lovely church was from the now retired Silent Night set, you might be able to see from the photo that we decoupaged the church & added an acetate "bubble" stamped with Serene Snowflakes to protect the layers.

The other card used the Night & Day DSP, also retired. I punched out two scalloped circles, cut into the centre of each & concertina folded them to create the flower, punched flowers & a brad covers the messy centre. This flower was inspired by the ones in the new Idea Book & Catalogue. I love the sentiment from the Occassional Quotes (Hostess Level 3) set, it just finished the card off nicely!

Take care,
Kathy. x

Black & White Challenge

A while ago I challenged my Stampers 6 ladies to create some cards using some images I'd stamped onto some Whisper White card, together with some Basic Black card & an Eyelet Border strip.

They came up with some lovely cards (sorry I forgot to take pictures) & I completed these cards to show what I'd have come up with.

The stamp set I used was True Friend, which has now retired, but any stamp set would have made a lovely set to give as a gift.

Thanks for looking,

Tealight Holder Cover

I made this cover for a tealight holder I bought a while ago, I used the snowflake rub ons from the mini catalogue (now sadly retired). I'm not sure about this one, I think I'm going to have a rethink & try again, what do you think? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Take care,

Sparkly & Bright Lantern

This is a cute little project I made after I bought a load of battery operated tea lights. The holer is made from the Vellum Card (it's nice & sturdy). I stamped & embossed in white then used my trusty Stampin' Write markers to colour in the back. It's a bit fiddly to put the holder together, but my son loved it!

I did another one in blue & lilac, but can't find the photo! Oh well, I can always make another! :)

Yet another set, this time in a natural colour way.

Snow Burst Card Set

This is another set I made a while ago, I've posted it all in one go as I have so many projects to show you. This set was super easy to make, I was finished in one evening. It's just as well when I have well over a hundred cards to make this year.

Take care,

Thank you!

Just a little note to say THANK YOU to the lovely ladies who came to my New Catalogue Launch Party. 
I had a lovely day chatting, stamping & eating cake, hope you did too!

I thought I'd better announce the winner of my prize draw, who has won lots of Stampin' Up goodies. My husband Pete drew the ticket so....
Congratulations Doreen!

As you know I've been having a lot of trouble getting to post my blogs lately, but I promise I have loads to show you & will endeavour to have some new projects very soon.

Take care,
