I need to use this stamp, but had to come up with some kind of festive twist with it.
Actually, I’ve moved things on again since taking this, and have made a rectangular box to place a goat in (yes, a goat ….. well, a cyber goat anyway from Oxfam) – I thought I’d put a little label that says “care: contents contain nuts” on it too. I am currently in the process of cutting out a massive amount of Limeade Snowflakes and circle middles to go all around the edge. As well as the cyber goat there will be an Adam stamp (mounted on kling) and some liquer choccies.

- Cut the 12×12 piece of cardstock in half, and score down the middle of one of the pieces to create a 6×6 card.
- With Palette Noir ink stamp the leaf stem around the card.
- Cut a piece of the white cardstock to 4×4 and stamp the 3-step heart in the Bashful Blue, Red Magic and Palette Noir ink.
- Fill in some of the gaps with the small flower image using Certainly Celery ink. Ticket Punch all four corners.
- Matt the white piece on to 4.5×4.5 piece of black cardstock and Ticket Punch the Corners.
- Then position it slightly towards the upper lefthand side of the card (but not too high).
- With the Wizard machine, and using the middle die, cut out a tag, and edge with the Red Magic dewdrop.
- Stamp “Thanks so much” in Certainly Celery on this. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get the correct placement.
- Cut a small piece of the green gingham ribbon, and mount underneath where the flower will go.
- Punch a hole in the tag, and mount the flower (secured with the large brad.
- Add Leaf Green Pearlidoodles to the centres of the stamped flowers, and then drop it on the floor to squash them!

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.

They are 2-5-7-10 bags, which are super easy to make, with the image coloured and cut out, and then added to the front.
a day late I know, but Toodles has been invited to a Halloween Party on Friday by one of her friends. So this is a quick 2-5-7-10 bag to take some sweeties in.

After I’d taken the photo, I added some glossy accents to the pumpkin, and also some black dots on the flap with Perlidoodles.
Blogger still playing up, and I can only seem to upload the occassional image at the moment. So here is a close up view of the wedding cake “card” that I made last week for my friend to give to the happy couple, bottom layer contains choccies, middle one the foling notes, the top one a little book on love.
After I’d made it I noticed that Bitten by the Bug had put up a challenge for us to use the Mini Monograms cartridge (which is my absolute favourite), and this cake uses that cartridge to make the scallopped squares on top of each box………….so this is my entry therefore!
Just a quickie card using Parisbella and Wishing you a birthday that is just your style. Also had a quick go at doing a frame and white noise edge around the photo thanks to Beate’s tutorial recently (see Fresh & Fun link in the side bar, then scroll down a bit). I quite like it, and might have a play in a bit with different effects.
that’s better, it’s just amazing what bit of Pearlidoodles and Stickles does for the bling factor. Much happier with it now, plus it’s really touchy feely.
Thank for the lovely comments about the bead Caardvarks card, actually it probably took about 25 minutes tops to do, the worst bit was stringing the beads. I am really lucky though to have most of what I need at my finger tips. The trouble I have is using different stamps….I tend to stick to what is on my desk till I completely tidy away, and then I will go searching for other ones for a project.
That style of card is so quick, and very effective, and the beauty of it is that because I use a lot of the 6×6 pads, I can get a very different look each time by adding a different paper to the inside – plus, there is no cutting to be done…other than sometimes my sticking abilities leave a lot to be desired and I have to trim a little around one of the edges.
Scoring too (now that I’m used to the Scor-it) is a breeze. I have to say that it took me a bit of practice with the Scor-it, but I am really glad (a) that I bought it even though it was devillishy expensive and (b) that I kept on plugging away ’til I got the knack with it.
- Take white card blank, fold and stamp on blooms and swirls from the Build a Bloom Tin in the Savoy Green and Whispers Dye Ink
- With the Rain pattern paper, cut the “Smile” word at 2.5″.
- Cut the blackout for it in grey cardstock.
- Assemble the two together, and layer the Primas and Brad over the dot of the i.
- Stick onto the cardblank with the Scrapbook Adhesive, being careful that you don’t get any squeeze out.
- Tie around some of the yellow ribbon from the MM mono ribbon set.
I think that I may well go on to add either some gems or glitter on some of the blooms….’cause I like bling.
Yep, I was right, when I looked at it again, it was just toooooo plain. So I added some Pearlidoodles (I love them and use them loads, but very few people have discovered them, they are a much cheaper, and IMHO better option than other dimensional paint that you can get), and I also added some Diamond Stickles, now I feel happier. It’s all drying, so I will add a new picture tomorrow.
