Club Night.....



 How quickly out club meetings come around....last night we made these little paper mugs and stirring stick and added a sachet of hot Chocolate and marshmallows....these little mugs are great as you can also use them for birthdays etc not just Christmas.
 Our second project was using both postitive and negative die cuts...inking behind where the die had been cut out and inking and stamping onto the die cut itself....the top layer of the card was popped onto sticky pads to raise it up which doesn't show very well on the photos ... .
 The elephant and Giraffe dies came from a pack of dies by Penny Black called On Safari...a versitile little set...I've kept my samples simple but can do so much with these dies...
 My Christmas card die is a Memory Box one called Leaping Deer....just used a word die on these little 'deers'.....
For this card I've used a Memory Box leaf die, after die cutting I popped the front in the SU Wall embossing folder, used a small plant punch to finish off my card...

 Its coming up to half term week soon and we have two little visitors staying with us but will  try and get another card made before they arrive!

Have a great weekend whatever you have planned...

For some reason some of your comments wont publish...but thank you anyway..

Thanks for passing by

Anne

These look great and even better for real - clever idea with the positive and negative die cuts and the mug is certainly a fun idea.
