Woohooo, my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder arrived yesterday, and I got a chance to play with it today.
I’ve had a layered/stitched tag kicking around on my desk for bloomin’ ages, and so I wizzed it through with the folder, what a difference it makes – how have I lived without one all this time!

this is a spare piece of the Roses in Winter paper I had left over, which is matted on dark purple.
Made a 6×6 card, and then cut off a couple of inches from the front righthand side, ticket punched the cornners, and mounted the piece to the front of the card.
The quotation is from my new Tim Holtz set I got yesterday.
It doesn’t show up in the photo very well, but I added Diamond Stickles to to the two stamped flowers, then added a dark purple silk flower, with a Prima Crasy Daisy in the centre of it, secured with a Papermania brad and a single leaf from the Walk in the Garden Cricut Cartridge I had haning around on my desk.
this week’s challenge was to create something for a female – perfecto – it’s Paula’s birthday on Saturday, so I used my new Chicken stamp.
OMG, I had such trouble with the MM magnetic stamps I’ve lost the handle that came with them, and had to use a magnetic block – know I remember why they’ve pretty much never been used. I have to say that they are just the perfect size, obviously I just need to persevere with them though.
Quite a plain card, and I’m not sure if there’s something missing. Possibly I should have matted the pattern paper down the middle.
I saw one of them there MM ribbon tag attachment tools – sorry, I know that’s a really bad description – I think I might want one. Rather than rely on that dodgy description, I’ll try to find a demo clip of it.

Used the Base Camp cartridge to cut the 80 and the postal stamp rectange and shadow background.
Stamped out the fish, roughly coloured in with COPICs, covered with Versamark and then several layers of Chiaro Flo (I know that it’s our own product, but it really is the most amazingly clear EP!).
Well, well, well …………. Peep Show won best Situation Comedy at the BAFTA’s last night, it was worth sitting through the whole thing just to see that. Such a shame the lovely David Mitchell didn’t win best Comedy Actor (he was robbed). I’m not a fan of Gavin & Stacy and don’t see the appeal of the fat chap, James somethingorother, who did win.
To celebrate I ordered the Series 1 of Peep Show for Rob (ohhh, I admit it me too) – who is now a massive convert to the series and a huge fan of the wonderful creation of Mark Corrigan.

Just a really quick card from last night, I thought I’d break myself in gently.
Ages and ages ago I bought an Anna Griffin box set from Creat & Craft TV (and as with a lot of stuff never used it).
I found it again last night as I was going through the stuff to be put back into the new kitchen, and right on the top of the box was this loevely pattern paper.
Card blank, pattern paper and ribbon and butterfly and frame stamp from the AG box, with the addition of Prima Daisy Crazy “Jasime”, PM red jewel brad, a portion of a Cricut swirl, Sakura pens, green Stickles and Rudolph’s Nose Zoomz.
just a quickish card for one of Mum’s friends – I’m feeling all Spring like and love the lilac and lemon colour combo at the moment.
Stamps: Do Crafts Sew Simple set, “Happy Birthday” Sincere Saluations set (SU).
The image is coloured in with various lilac/purple COPIC markers. Jewel brads are by Papermania. The flowers are from a new pack due to be released by SG-me! shortly.

I actually broke out my embossing powders and Ecoline inks last night to make a birthday card or two for some friends next week.
Stamp the Savvy Dahlia both in Perfect Puleria & Aegean Blue, and tie around the purple ribbon.
Then prepare the background image by stamping the heart image from the Magenta Nov/Dec Stamp Club, and then emboss with Chiaro Flo embossing powder.
Paint over the whole thing with the Magenta Ecoline, allowing light and dark areas. When dry, iron off the EP to leave the white image. Stamp the vine from the Nov/Dec pack, and colour in with G16 marker, add Peralidoodles to the small dots on the image.
Over stamp the Magenta flower image in Palette Noir ink, and add the metal flowers/Prima. Matt onto the Razzleberry Light cardstock, and ink with Pefect Pulmeria Versamagic. Mount on the front of the card.
Place tiny dots of Perlidoodles in both Pink and Pearl in the centres of the stamped Dahlia images. Also add three larger dots of Pearlidoodles in the top and bottom righthand edges.
As usual, you can click on the image to view larger.
