Three Trees in the Sunset

The title for this post sounds rather like a title for a song but fear not as I'm not going to sing for you. Instead you are going to get the latest card in my challenge entries and this tuime it one for Allsorts challenge 29 and Sketch Saturday# 78. I'm starting today with a link to the sheet of stamps that I've used as I'm sure that you will want one too.


The card is made with just two of the stamps but the effect is achieved by a little masking and dabing with Art and Graphic pens.


Now it's over to you. I'd love to see some of the things that you create with these trees.

Allsorts challenge week 28

Allsorts challenge week 28 is an inspirational one entitled

Christmas carol or a song title....!

What more could one ask at this Christmas time so I've entitled mine

Mistletoe and Wine

Readers, please note that she's holding the Mistletoe and she's already been on the wine.

I know that you are going to want to make this card so you will need the Mrs Santa stamp to get yourself going.

I also used the fabulous and now 'seen on tv' Art and Graphic pens from Kuretake. Colours used. 2, for the dress, 207 for the skin and 50 for the mistletoe.

The lace border was punched with a fiskars border punch.

The Merry Christmas is a stamp from I Brake foe Stamps.

The green and white paper is Jolly Holly dotted lines from Doodlebug.

Now get on and make the card by:

Cutting a base card 150cm x 150cm. I used white card for this.

Cut a strip of heavy red paper and adhere to the bottom third of the card.

Punch a lace border with the Fiskars border punch and layer over the red paper and adhere.

Layer on a strip of Jollyt Holly dotted lines paper and adhere.

Stamp the Mrs. Santa stamp onto white card and colour in with the Art and Graphic pens.

Mount on to Red card and adhere to the base card as shown.

Stamp the sentiment down the left hand side of the base card.

Punch out some circles of card and stick to the base card as shown.

Thread a red button with some green satin ribbon and tie in a knot. Adhere to the base card with foam pads.

Humorous Senior Christmas Card

The Challenge today on Charizma Cards is a sketch and as I've been making Christmas cards recetly, this seems to be the logical thing to do.

This hilarious image is from one of our ever popular stamp sheets that can be bought by clicking on the image of the sheet below.
Merry Christmas to you all.

Oh Christmas Tree!

A fairly cliched title to this post I know but you're entitled to be cliched at Christmas. It's the best time to be so.

For this post I've used one of our fabulous Christmas stamps that are so reasonably priced. This one is the green Christmas tree. Very modern, don't you think?

The card is simple too as I wanted to keep the lines very clean. So this is what I came up with:


This card is made with nestabilities and doodlebug paper but the star of the show is the tree image in the centre.

Ribbon is 3mm red ribbon with white spots.

Snowman card from our new stamps

We have a set of fantastic new stamps in the online Craft Fairy store and I've made a card from just one of the little snowmen. He is just the perfect size for an A6 card and I'm sure that you'll love him too.

To make this card you will need the snowman stamp which at only £3 is a super bargain.

Some of our dotty red satin ribbon.

I also used Doodlebug paper from my stash and Kuretake pens to colour up the stamp.

Allsorts Challenge 27, 'Children'

The challenge on Allsorts this week is for a card for a child so....this card is for my grand daughter. It's a very special card this year as the one that I made for her last year was lost in the post.



The card uses my favourite colour too so for me it's just perfect.

If you want to re-creat something similar you will need:

Stamps Kids 76 from the Merry Stamper

Pink Dotty Grosgrain Ribbon

A pink bloom

A pink button

Some paper and card

Scissors, 3d foam pads. glue etc.

Have fun.

It is a ribbon canvas that is decorated with paper flowers and a stamped saying from 'I Brake for Stamps'. This canvas is a joint venture with my daughter and you will find her blog, Bargain Queen Uk, here.

Give ma a little time and i'll give you the instructions too.
