Coffee & Card morning....

It was another of Jill's coffee and card mornings a week ago 1st Saturday of the month.. again there were several cards we could choose to make and I loved this one, I actually 'cased'  Jill's card as I thought it was lovely...the little birdies are so sweet up in the tree, the Stamp Set is called 'Snow Front'.

Jill always gives us a piece of card for the inside but I used mine to stamp another little scene and made another card up at home...and I've just noticed I've missed the little birdies off the tree..

Thanks for looking

Stampin Up Craft day..

 I had a really brilliant weekend crafting...I'll post what I did on Saturday later in the week..but on Sunday I attended another one of Jenny Moors Stampin Up craft days which of course was a Christmas themed one we made some amazing projects.
Stampin Up  Perfectly Plaid stamp set and punch was what we used..I just loved the framed project we did and a very clever way of using the matching tree punch.

 This little box had a hidden gem inside.....
             Such a sweet minature Keepsake box which is big enough for a small 
         gift  or Chocolates....
                  Loved the design of this card a the which opened up from the top

                              This pretty Christmas box held a lovely suprise....

                The top opened up to reveal some where to put your message

                                                  Then a lovely suprise inside

I love the Diorama cards as they can fold flat to post

An amazing day Jenny, thank you for all your hard work.

In a couple of days I will post another card which I made at another stamping and Coffee morning event... 

Thanks for popping by to look

Little Westie

When visiting Bath and West craft fair last week I didn't buy much but I did buy this lovely little Westie die cut in both the small and large (Britannia dies) ...this is the small die which is cut out of black glitter card...its perfect to fit on a 5 x 5 card...I've so many small card to use up and this is perfect...

Its an awful day down here in Somerset very wet and blowing a a perfect day for crafting..
  Have a good weekend whatever you are doing

Stamping on Embossing Folder technique....

Last Club night I also re-visited a technique I did quite a while ago stamping onto the S.U Woodland embossing folder to make it look like the trees are in the foreground and the trees are behind.
 I started off brayering Soft Sky on the depressed side of the embossing folder then I stamped 3 trees...then very gently brayered light grey on the trees before adding the little deers die cuts afterwards.

For this card I brayered my background then stamped both the tree and the car before adding the little bird and the cat (both die cuts)...its such an easy technique but very can find lots of videos on Utube show how to do this.

Hope you are all enjoyed the weekend it has been lovely and sunny down here in Somerset.

Tea light projects...

Had a little play with some tea light battery candles....this poinsettia
was made with die cut poinsettia petals and leaves..and a little ribbon around the bottom...very quick to make.

Project 2 was this little birthday cake using small punches flowers
just decorated this little box I already had but the cake would look lovely in a white box with an acetate front or top.... 
Just loved making this little snowman, you just need to punch holes in the back for the tiny on/off switch and so easy to do with an easel card but of course you do need a little box to pop him in if you were posting.
There are so many ideas around on Pinterest using these little battery tea lights.

Thanks for stopping by

Its been a while....Coffee and Card morning

 It's been quite a while since I last posted but just haven't had time to craft, a few holidays along the way and also looking after my daughter who now is almost back to work after her major operation....
Yesterday was the monthly Coffee and Card making morning run by the lovely Jill Lackford .
Jill had several card designs for us to choose from but I liked this lovely deer card and the liked the idea the card folded flat to post which certainly helps keep the costs down.   Image is from SU Natures Beauty stamp set

Its our club night on Wednesdayevening so I will have something else to post   later on in the week

I'm sorry I haven't kept up with your blog posts but hopefully now things are back to normal.

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?
