Coffee & stampin Up morning

I went to Jill's stamping coffee morning last week we had a choice of making 4 different cards..we had two notelets to use.  The smaller card above was the one I completed on the morning, the larger one I just stamped the front of the card and made it up at home using a 5 x 7" card.

 The other card I decided to make was the daisy card, again I just stamped the front of the card then at home popped it on a 6 x 6 card...the 2nd daisy card I used two daisy images I had stamped too dark but bought them home coloured them and popped them on a card using snippets from my die cut box.
All details of stamp sets can be found on Jill's facebook page.

I really enjoy the coffee and stamping mornings we stamp we chat and drink coffee whats nicer?

Silhouette Stag Die

I actually managed to put a card together yesterday.. My friend Michelle very kindly let me borrow a couple of her Crafters Companion  Gemini - Elements dies and this is the Silhouette Stag.
The frame is one from 'The Works', I must say their dies are very good and cut beautifully....a very quick card to make and at least I've made a start on my Christmas cards.

I'm still quilt malking and doing crochet which I am enjoying very much.

Card for Special Friend...

No time to craft at the moment I'm busy making a couple of patchwork quilts and doing some crochet.... 
This sweet card I made a couple of weeks ago using another serviette image....The backing paper I found in my paper stash, just added a little piece of lace and a die cut flower and my card was made.

Masculine Get well card...

I'm back after a week away celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary we had a lovely time away.  
Before we went away I made this get well card for my friends son who rides a motorbike so the image was very apt ....luckily I also found the backing paper amongst my stash of papers.

Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful warm weather we are having...is it going to last for the Bank Holiday??

Thanks for stopping by

Floating die cut Frame technique...

This afternoon I've had a little play with the Floating die Frame technique...for this you ideally need some stamps and co-ordinating dies also something called 'Gad Press 'n'Seal'  which is a bit like sticky cling film, I purchased that from Amazon 

 I managed to find some die cuts in my snippets die box these were from the old Stampin up 'A Rose is a Rose' stamp set....you can make two card from one sheet,  I used a circle die which I cut from the main sheet hence I manged to get two cards and I think these look very pretty.

I watched Jennie Mcquire tutorial which is so easy to do....Please have a go its so easy.

Thanks for looking..

Special friend....

 Made this 'thank you' card for a special friend who I know loves owls, its made from part of a serviette, luckily I still had a little bit of Modge Podge left so just gave it a couple of coats and it was ready to be die cut.  Trying to use up all my old backing papers this one is a very old one from SU.

Another week has flown by and its almost the weekend again but hope you all have a good one.

 Thanks for stopping by its really appreciated.
