My First Stampers 10 Card!!!

Good evening everyone,
Well I did it, I made my first card for my stampers 10 club with Stampin' up!!
I used the christmas tree from the stampin' up 'Flaky Friends' set and stamped it 3 times. I coloured using watercolour pencils and glitter. The card stock is a gold A5 card with gold envelope from 'A touch of craft'. Backing paper is 'Alison Ellis Designs'. Greeting is from 'Craftwork Cards'.
Its also my first christmas card of the year!! Hope you all like it. Hope all of the other 9 stampers enjoyed using their products as much as me. Thanks to Julie Kettlewell who organised the whole thing!!

Stampers 10 Club

Ooh i'm so excited!! I had a delivery during the week for the stampers 10 club. It was my stamps from my 1st order! Unfortunately they couldn't fit the package through the door so had to take it back to the depot. I then had to wait until today to get them as I work full time!

I got up early this morning and rushed down there and have already stamped them and started glittering some of them. I will come back later to upload some piccies of cards I will hopefully have made. They are really gorgeous stamps that have all stamped out perfectly so I know are brilliant quality.

Thanks to Julie for letting me join the club!!! Trying to decide what my next order will be!! lol

See you later xxx

ABC Challenge

Hi guys,
Had a busy day at work today. Its so hard now that I have a blog all I want to do is sit on the internet all day looking at all of the wonderful blogs!! I am a PA therefore have absolutely no time for internet, lunch, toilet...etc lol :o)

Just made this card for the ABC challenge of 'H is for Holidays'. I have stamped the images and coloured in with watercolour pencils. I have mounted and layered on to blues and greens as these are the colours I think of when I think of the sea!!! Glittered image and backing paper as I think it brings it alive! Text is printed on computer.

Hope you like it!

New Penny Black Cards

Good morning all,

I had a busy week this week with orders from work! I only managed to take photos of a couple before taking them in.

The first card was made using inspiration from Cookie Grover who showcases a lot of her cards on Elzybells blog. The second card was using inspiration I got from Kerry Cox 'A load of old Pickle' I absolutely love her cards. Her ideas are so fresh and funky and I really admire her work.

Both cards are using Penny Black stikeroos which I absolutely love. They are a quick and easy way to make cards when you are in a hurry and have such bold brilliant colours and designs. I am addicted to Penny Black and have drawers full of stamps!!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday guys!!

Another Penny Black stamp coloured using watercolour pencils. I have done 2 variations here of the same design. Both sentiments are Anita peel offs coloured with permanent markers. Cardstock is Bazzill Basics. Ribbon used bought from local craft shop.
This was a card I have made for my godmother Eileen. It wasn't for anything special just to say hello and show her I was thinking about her!
Butterfly stamp is from Stamp Man Flitters and Flutters range. Stamped on to paper first and coloured, then stamped on to vellum and glittered. Backing paperand ribbon added for some texture.

Here I have stamped a Penny Black? image and water coloured using pencils. The greeting is a peel off which I have coloured in red. I have used bazzill cardstock for layering. I have just added a ribbon at the top of the card as it needed something else!
Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to say my first big hello on my new blog page. Hope you all enjoy my blog!

Happy crafting!!!
