That stamp again

We have been away for a couple of days in Birmingham as we went to see Simple Minds and Ultravox in concert last night. We had a fantastic day yesterday. There was a wonderful German Christmas market and we were in the library having a coffee when we saw all these people waiting for somebody and it was Prince William. We were about three feet away from him when he came in. The concert was brilliant. On our way home this morning. 

I have used that lovely Woodware stamp again. Last Saturday it was white on white, then Monday paper pieced and today I have coloured it with Copics. The papers are Marianne Designs Eline's Merry Little Christmas. I have used a new Marianne border die I bought at the NEC along with Marianne large and small poinsettias. The holly leaves were made with a Woodware punch and I added a holly leaf charm, pearls, Viva pear pen drops and stickles.

Gorjuss Snowman

I haven't used a snowman image for a while and I do love them. This one is from the Gorjuss range and he has been coloured with Copics. The lovely soft coloured papers are Christmas Time from Whimsy designed my Michelle Roos. The snowflake is Memory Box Bianca which I used with glitter card, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and I added some stickles and Viva Decor pearl pen drops.

Time for an anything goes with ribbons challenge at Crafty Ribbons. I love banners and played around with various strips of paper and washi tape filling the card with the banners. I die cut some poinsettias using Marianne dies and added some punched holly leaves edged with a Sakura gold star pen. The gorgeous Christmas ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons of course.

I love Teddies

It's true I do love Teddies and Forever Friends seem a bit neglected nowadays yet whenever I see one it makes me smile and they are so lovely to colour. I played around with some heat embossing for a change too using a swirly stamp. clear embossing powder and then DI Worn Lipstick

Make a scene

The two craft fairs at the weekend went really well. In fact so well I am a bit short of stock for the last two in two week's time so I will be busy making more. Some of them are quite simple cards and these are proving very popular with customers. For this one I used a Die-namics snowdrift die and a new MB die. The sentiment is a Marianne die and stamp set and I used an old Cuttlebug embossing folder with sanded Core'dnations and added lots of stickles.

Yes it is the same stamp that I used on my white card on Saturday, compare the two cards and it shows how versatile these stamps are. The cards are nothing alike. This one is much more fussy.

More Roses

Another early start for me today at another craft fair so I have scheduled this post and will link it later. It's another card using products from a Hobby House pack. The only things not in the pack were the flowers which are from Wild Orchid and I punched some rose leaves with a MS punch.

White on White with a touch of red

I love White on White cards and I sometimes think a little touch of colour really sets them off. I used another of my new Woodware stamps. I doodled inside the numbers to match the border and added frantage and Viva Decor pearl pen drops to the sentiment. I used a Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, velvet ribbons from Crafty Ribbons, flowers from stash and ruby pearls from The Hobby House.

Alice in Wonderland

It's my second and final GDT make for the lovely ladies at It's all about the vintage and beauty. This fortnight the sponsors are Delicious Doodles and Villakeiju. Yes, it's another bookmark. I love the vintage images from Nicecrane and was delighted to use this which is from the original book drawings. Bit of a challenge to colour as there is so much black shading in the picture but I am pleased with the way it all turned out. I used another of the large Prima tags, a Papermania diecut, dictionary page including the word curious, some mini playing cards from a cracker, ribbon from stash, a Tim Holtz clock rubon and DI Vintage Photo.

Two more penguins

Not one but two penguins for you today. I adore this image which is a digi from Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits. It was a rubber stamp but I think you can only get the digi now. I bought some 7x7 card blanks at the NEC and this is the first one of these I have used. I really like the size.

Penguin Lamplighter

I do love a penguin image and Janet at Pink Gem has produced some gorgeous new images so I just had to buy a couple. I have been back to colouring some images for my next cards on my blog and have been enjoying it so much. I have made several traditional coloured cards lately but it was fun to use one of my fave colour combos on this one.

This is my second card today.

Well I don't seem to be showing many cards I have coloured at the moment but as I have been trying to build up my stocks again after selling so many cards these gorgeous precoloured Wee toppers make much quicker cards. Everything on the card with the exception of the MB die cut flower and the WOC roses is from a Hobby House pack. I just had to add a little colouring for the floor on the image.

Banners and Stars Joy

A clean and simple card today, which I am really pleased with. I am enjoying the challenge of making some very different styles of card. I cut three banners from Craftwork Cards Christmas Post papers and inked the edges. The sentiment is from the same pack. The stars were die cute with MB traditional stars dies and I added some pearls to the centres.

I have been wanting some of the Woodware word stamps for a while and bought this and the Baby one at the NEC. I can see it being so useful and is great for paper piecing as I have done here. The papers are Echo Park Winter Wishes and I added an MS punched snowflake, pearl and some MB die cut penguins using black glitter card. I added loads of stickles ot the word too. The let it snow sentiment is also part of the stamp set, which I know I shall be using again soon.

My first calendar

I was asked at a recent craft fair if I had any calendars so I thought I would have a go at making some. I bought the calendars and the chipboard heart at the NEC. I usually look at things like this and wonder what to do with them but I was determined to give it a go. I covered the heart with some new paper from Dovecraft, Cupcake Boutique. and inked the edges. The birdcage is a MB die and the butterfly Joy. I added some lace and ribbon from stash and some Wild Orchid roses.

Sewing Bookmark

You may have noticed that I love making sewing cards though I don't sew nowadays. I used to like embroidery, patchwork and cross stitch before I discovered cadmaking. I thought a sewing bookmark would be fun for my DT make this week for the anything goes with ribbon at Crafty Ribbons. I stamped various sewing stamps which were a mag freebie, using Memento Rich Cocoa and then used DI tattered Rose. The diecuts are Tim Holtz and I used ric rac and tape measure ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. The bows and baker's twine are from stash.

Christmas Post

Saw a very nice specialist yesterday about my back and he explained that the fracture has healed but unfortunately one of my vertebrae is compressed which is what cause the pain at times. I have some exercises to do and in time the pain should get less and the compression will ease but it will never fully recover. I am so relieved that I don't have to have surgery. Thanks for all your good wishes.

When I went to the NEC I was so disappointed that Craftwork Cards did not have a stand as these shaped cards and the Christmas Post papers were on my wish list (along with a lot of other things). I found the card blanks on Little Claire's stand and about an hour before I left spotted a Christmas Post pack with not only the gorgeous papers, but flowers and tags and candi. I adore this pack and will be using it a lot, the vintage look is fabulous and goes so well with my new Inkylicious stamp which I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto some new linen card I bought at the NEC. Everything else is from the pack except the bow which also came from the show.

First play with some new dies

I have so much lovely new stuff to play with and so many ideas whirling round in my head for some different Christmas cards to the usual cute images. I am still loving my cute images of course but as I had another good craft fair on Saturday I am glad to have lots of ideas for non coloured cards as they are quicker and I need to build up my stock.

I decided to make an almost white on white card, just having a small amount of blue in the First Edition Silent Night backing paper. I was so pleased that the Memory Box deer trio cute from Centura pearl fit perfectly inside my floral oval diecut from white (yes it is white!) glitter card. I used the negative from a new Memory Box die for Christmas and Hapy is a new Britannia die which came with Christmas and Birthday dies so they will be very useful. I also used a MB snowflake die and added a couple of pearls.

I was lucky enough to win a Little Clare set of stamps from a Facebook competition. I was so pleased to win as there are several stamps in the set and perfect for guys. I made this for a friend who loves the Lake District and as it was his Birthday yesterday I can now share it with you. The signpost is so useful as it is blank for you to write on, stamp on etc.

My lovely new goodies

As promised here are the photos of all my lovely new stash from the NEC Hobbycrafts show. I had money from my recent Birthday and some money from craft fair sales saved and I even came home with £5! This fist pic are all the essentials. 

Lovely new paper pads, LOTV art pad and all sorts of pretties including some gorgeous ribbon and buttons from Crafty Ribbons.

The stamps. Only 2 cute ones, one of the new LOTV girls and a PB hedgie which had 40% off. I am really enjoying making some non cute cards and was so pleased to find the ones I wanted at the show.

10 gorgeous new dies, some at amazing prices. We also had a 10% voucher for Oyster Stamps so some of them were even cheaper.

I am going to ave so much fun creating with all this. I haven't forgotten my lovely loyal followers either and there will be a little Christmas candy post up later so please hop back and enter.

I am at a craft fair this morning so will catch you later. Enjoy your weekend xx

I had a fabulous time yesterday at the NEC Hobbycrafts show with my good friend Lynsey. We like so many of the same things and we both came away with loads of new goodies, will be sorting them out today and will share some pics tomorrow.

I am hosting the challenge at Winter Wonderland and we are looking for Christmas makes for a child. We are sponsored by Pink Gem who are offering 3 of their gorgeous digis to the winner. The DT were lucky enough to be given some of Janet's digis to play with.

Vintage Guest Designer

This is my second card today, please scroll down for my Crafty Little Fairies DT card.

I was thrilled to receive a lovely email from Sande inviting me to be a guest designer for November at It's all about the vintage and beauty. The theme this week is fancy edged scissors/punches.  I only recently discovered this challenge and as I love making vintage cards I will be playing along regularly. My sewing cards sell so well that I thought it ime to make another. I don't usuually leave mt buttons naked unless they are tiny ones but somehow these looked right this way.

I stamped the Kaisercraft with Memento Rich Cocoa and teamed ith my fave papers of the moment, Prima Lyric. I distressed the edges with my TH tool and DI Vintage Photo. The embellishments are all from stash.

By the time this publishes I will have made several purchases at Hobbycrafts at the NEC.

Another CAS Robin

Today's challenge at Crafty Little Fairies is Christmas in November and we have a great prize this week of a £10 voucher from

Now for those of you who know me and know Squirrel as well will realise that Squirrel must have had quite a shock when she saw I had chosen to go with a CAS card rather than something more fussy and fancy. I loved making the last CAS one with this image so much I was determined to try another in a different style. The layout came about when I was tidying, something I do al the time I am crafting, believe me I am one of the world's tidiest crafters. These paper strips were lying beside the trimmer and I thought how good they looked together, rather than in the bin. Both my robin cards sold last Wednesday so I want to make some more. I am really enjoying making some cas cards at the moment as well as my usual fussy and fancy style.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments. I have an appointment at the hospital next Monday morning abut my back so hopefully I will know more after that.

When I ordered some goodies from Dies to Die For Tracy sent me a few diecuts with the order and the sentiment was one of them. I decided to use it for a simple card for a new baby. The backing paper is Docrafts Forever Friends Kraft notes, Memory Box banner with pearls and a few buttons to finish.

I am off for a massage and visit to the dentist this morning. Guess which one I am looking forward to, lol. I had the results of my back Xray and I have a compressed fracture so am waiting for a referral to the hospital to see if anything can be done. Thankfully it doesn't hurt all the time but sometimes it presses on a nerve and that it is very painful.

Gorjuss Time

Of the three craft fairs last week, two were great, one was disappointing. In fact of the two good ones, one was my best ever fair. In total at the three fairs I sold 55 cards, some tags, notebooks etc and some craft stash.  My stock is rather depleted now so I shall be working to replenish that as I have four more fairs this month.

Here's something you don't see on my blog much, decoupage. It is popular with customers and as I needed to make some quicker cards last week to build up my stock again thought I would use this image I found already made up in my stash.

Thinking of you

I was recently asked at a craft fair if I had a card suitable to give somebody who had just found out they were seriously ill and I had nothing suitable. I love these images from Digistamp Boutique and thought this would have been a suitable card or could be used as a sympathy card. I teamed it with the gorgeous Prima Lyric paper, Craftwork Cards sentiment, MB die cut Chloe Stem with Centura Pearl and some small pearls.
