Wow I have been so busy with getting ready for Christmas I havent been to my blog for awhile. Here is one of the iris fold Christmas cards I have made. I love this pattern that was made by Valita Reynolds. She is a very talented iris folder and has made so many wonderful patterns and shares them with her fellow card makers.
I am so behind in giving out my cards this year even though I had them made so early.

This one is using Crazy for Christmas. It is cased out of the Stampin' Up! Idea book and Catalogue. I have used Cranberry Crisp, Handsome Hunter and Buckeroo Blue. Its a little crooked now that I look at it but you get the idea.....
I did this one with the set Good Things Grow. It is a very simple card that I cased. I have used Whisper white card and Glorious Green and Real Red ink.
This one is again Cranberry Crisp and Mellow Moss, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla. I love this set, Hung up on the Holidays. I also used Print Pattern background and Many Merry Messages
Another card Cased from the catty. Again Hung up on Holidays but this time the colours are Vintage Violet, Garden green, and Almost Amethyst.
I made this card using the Petal prints outline stamp for the branches and Mostly flowers to make the baubles using a circle template. Also used the set Wonderful words. Colours are Tempting Turquoise, Yoyo Yellow and Real Red.

I thought is was about time I added another card to my blog. I have been busy this week preparing for tomorrows Mini catalogue launch. I also had my last stamp a stack on Tuesday evening and this was one of the cards we made.
It is made with Bravo Burgundy card stock and using gold ink. I love using the crimper as it add interest to an otherwise very simple card. I hope you like it.

I am a little behind with my blogging for the week so here are the Spring cards my ladies on Wednesday learnt this week. The templates are great to use for the embossing, pricking and embroidery as they have 4 different designs. These are 2 cards I had made previously. When I finish the medium card I started I will post it here for you as well.
Have a great weekend. Also if you have the time please talk to me.... as in leave a message.You dont need to join up just leave it as anonymous but add your name after the comment so I know who you are. I feel like I am all alone as a blogger without any comments......... thanks

I have recieved my pre order from the Summer mini catalogue so will be spending the next couple of weeks making up some cards to teach at my Catalogue launch on the 1st December. The new stamp sets are so nice.
I hope you all have a great weekend and I will try to post more often.
Im not very good at this blogging. I havent posted for over a week. I had a wonderful weekend away with Graham for our anniversary and then apart from a stamp a stack on Monday and craft at LBC on Thursday, I really havent done much. My good friend Sandra came to visit on Tuesday and we did some stamping ready for stamp club this week so I will show you that card next.

I have been tired this week and apart from teaching card making havent actually made a card so I thought I would show you the card I made my mum for her 70th Birthday. It is a window card. Some people call them window shopping. I just used bought stickers to put in the window on this one. I have used a retired SU stampset for the verse inside. I have taught this card on my Wednesday class and also on Thursdays and everyone seems to like this one.

I also used the canvas background to kiss my solid flower stamp onto before stamping. The colours I have used are Real Red and Night of Navy on White.

I had my Saturday stamp club today. The 2 techniques I taught were Poppin Pastels and Ghosting or versamark resist. The card we made was using the "A new little someone set". I cased this card from a friend of mine..( thanks Jennie) I had previously done it in Pink and Blue but today there were all colours done and I decided to do mine in Barely Banana. I think it looks good in all of the soft subtle colours. We used the Print pattern background and of course Stampin Pastels to colour the background and re-inkers to paint the bunny.

I went over to my friend Lee-Anne's today to have a play with my new Spellbinder Nestabilities die cutters. I used them with my Cuttlebug and they worked really well. I managed to figure out a good "sandwich". I also used my cuttlebug to emboss the mauve strip with the divine swirl folder.

If you havent gone there the address is http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/
I'm sure if you put in card tote in the search you will get to see many of these great little totes.
I have to warn you to allow lots of hours for browsing the site. I think I look at cards much more than I actually make them. Sometimes I have to ban myself from coming down to the office to look at the computer so I can get some card making done. I think we are all guilty of that at times. I do love to look at everyone elses lovely cards.
Anyway I had better get off the computer now as I have just got my spellbinders nestabilities dies and cant wait to try them out. When I do I will show you what I have created. If you are interested in purchasing any of these let me know as I bought extras for my friends. Just email me privately.
