Happy 2018!

Hi friends! Happy new year!! Hope you are all well.  Sorry I haven't been blogging, no reason really as I have been making lots of cards, just have to get back in the swing! It's been extremely hot here in the last week or so, and I don't craft much as we don't have air con in the house just the bedroom which, we finally used Saturday night as the overnight temps were in the high 20s ( Celsius) and we wouldn't have slept much. We don't use it unless it's extreme as the electricity costs are too high. That's our summer! Anyhoo, my card today is using a new set I got recently MFT Flamazing. I just love it but at first couldn't figure out how to die cut the images as you stamp them in multiple parts, but die cut it once it's fully stamped. I ended up watching a YouTube of MFT and using my MISTI, I got it done. Spent today die cutting a bunch of images. This card was before I learnt how to, so it's just stamped. Thank you so much for looking and I hope to blog regular from now in. God bless xx

Krystle's Card.

Hi friends. Sorry I've not been posting, I've been sort of busy doing Christmas cards for orders. Hope you are all well and finding time to make a card or 2! This card was an order for a lady at church. Her daughter turned 30 last month. It's a simple card with a stencilled background Kaisercraft topper and dies for the 30 and birthday. Pretty simple but pretty. Thanks for popping by, many blessings xx

Vintage Wedding Card.

Hi friends. My daughter needed a wedding card and asked me to make one vintage style. I used  Graphic 45 Le Romantique paper where I really didn't do much to it. I fussy cut some flowers, distressed the edges, added a sentiment from SU, lace and some pearls. Easy. Thanks for popping by and many blessings xx

Papertry Ink Inspired God card set.

Hello friends! I made this set of cards using the PTI Inspired God stamps and die. I also used Cheery Lynn butterfly trio dies, and Coutour Creations embossing folders from the Romantique collection. I love how they turned out simple yet elegant with the very vanilla and pop of black. Thanks for popping by and many blessings xx

New stamps from STAMPlorations

Hi friends! I just got 9 new Stamps from the STAMPlorations TYPOGRAFIA IN FAITH collection. My lovely friend Ina, alerted me to them, she knows me well! When I saw they were KJV scripture I had to get them. Absolutely wonderful big bold sentiments and I will be getting the rest ASAP! Here's my first card with "Thy Word is a Lamp stamp".  I embossed it in gold on very vanilla card then die cut with a stitched rectangle,  I added that to a card base which I layered with some old SU paper, and a strip of gold washi tape. Done! The sentiment is the star! I will be adding this to STAMPlorations never ending challenge. Thanks for popping by, many blessings xx

Happy 32nd birthday Carly!

Hi friends! This card is for our second daughter Carly, who turned 32 ( how??) on the 16th. She LOVES cute so I had to use my new stamp set from The Stamps Of Life, " donuts2stamp", I glossed them all up with glossy accents and fussy cut them. The card was cut using Sizzix framelits step-ups dies.  I used MFT paper, Layers Of Color Sentimental Banners and the matching dies from Spellbinders. The cute ribbon I think was from SU. I just think it's stinkin' cute!! Thanks so much for popping by, many blessings! Xxx

70th Birthday Wishes!

Hi friends! I was asked to make a card for a wonderful lady at our church by another lady at our church, Margaret turned 70 and you would never know it! Her and her husband are our Sunday school superintendents and have been for many years, they are beautiful people and came to church a couple of months after we did in 1986, so I've known them a long time. Their son is now the Pastor of our church, and he also is a wonderful man. So, this card was made using Kaisercraft paper and a die I got on eBay. The 70 is stickers and the sentiment is from IBS. Thanks for dropping by, and many blessings xxx
