UK Stampers – Challenge No. 4 – Red, White and Blue

I’ve just managed to finally do one of the UK STamper weekly challenges set by Effemera each Sunday.

This week’s theme was a congratualations or thank you card in red, white and blue.


  • Mixed Bouquet Set (SU)
  • Circle of Friendship Set (SU)
  • Bashful Blue Classic Ink (SU)
  • Brocade Blue Classic Ink (SU)
  • Chocolate Chip Classic Ink (SU)
  • 1 1.4″ circle punch (SU)
  • Red Magic Versamagic Dewdrop
  • White notecard (SU) – all SU bits from Stampingcaz.
  • Narrow red ribbon

How to:

  1. Stamp the dotty flower stamp using the Red Magic Dewdrip three times across the bottom of the card.
  2. Stamp the leaf image in Brocade Blue twice.
  3. Next using Bashful Blue stamp the circle several times (try to use an un-even number).
  4. Using Chocolate Chip stamp the “Congratualations” from Circle of Friendship set, and punch out with circle punch.  With 3-d foam, place it bottom righthand side.
  5. Tie small piece of red ribbon around the spine.


I managed to hop over to see Caz and her adorable boys yesterday afternoon, and as usual had a smashing time, and came away with some lovely stamped bits and pieces.  Also a very large box of SU bits, two month’s worth of SU Club and some extra sets.

I have to say that Guy seemed a little shocked as I started to cut them out at the sheer number, and didn’t seem very convinced by the 2 month’s worth argument I put forward!

Cute Card Thursday – Challenge 5 – Wings

recently I discovered a great new challenge blog, and this is my first ever entry for it.

It had to be as the name suggests, cute, and Challenge 5 was something with wings……had to be a Magnolia of course.  An oversized tag to be precise.  It’ll probably form part of my Godaughter’s birthday card next month.


I have to admit recently to being a bit petulant about Magnolia’s (every one who’s a regular reader knows I love ’em) and haven’t bought any since November last year.

The only problem with my petulant attitude is that I am the only one that it’s hurting.  Especially as I got a look at the new troll ones in real life last week when I went to see Caz……… I decided that enough is most certainly enough and I have to forgive and forget that they lost Guy’s Christmas order, never apologised when we eventually got to speak to somebody in person, and never offered to fill the order even when we faxed them a copy ……….. that just the way it is, everybody deserves more than once chance, take a deep breath and be a big girl (I got loads of other lovely stuff for Christmas right!) – then I can stop missing out all the new lovely yummy stuff they’ve released.

Now I’ve got that off my chest I feel much better.

Sugar Nellie Card


Just a quick card using an image I coloured ages ago.

I’m loving the SU spiral punch, it’s great for defining an edge of something.

A really quick card for my Darling Husband



it’s not vastly masculine….but it’s the sentiment behind it – the central stamp image was the one I used on our Wedding invitations 11 years ago. 

Stamps:  Heart (Magnolia Stamp Club Nov/Dec 07), Heart with flowers (All Night Media), inside is “Thinking of you” (SU) but I’ve also written always and forever underneath it in my own handwriting.

Coloured with COPIC markers and using Pallete Noir and Red Magic Dewdrop.

Circle Nestabilities with semi-circles cut out of each layer, and MM black stitched ribbon tied round (see, I love him enough to use the last of this precious supply of ribbon on him!).

Any a BIG, BIG thank you to Han – power to the sisterhood – for the wonderful image used on this card – I have a feeling that it’s a Stampendous one (I know Caz has it), so hopefully Han or Caz can confirm that.

Non Cute card for a change


I actually broke out my embossing powders and Ecoline inks last night to make a birthday card or two for some friends next week.


How to:

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.

Beside the Sea Card



How to:-

  1. Make 6×6 cardblank using Scor-it board.

  2. Cut pattern paper to 5.5 x 5.5.  Punch ticket corners and run round the edge with the Perfect Pulmaria Versamagic.

  3. Place a piece of the word vellum down the left hand side, and mount onto the card.

  4. Cut a piece of Papaya Puree Medium cardstock to about 4.5 x 4.5.  Stamp with the Stampington cube in both Perfect Pulmaria and Pearlescent Purple – I used the starfish and mesh images.  Run round the edge with the Perfect Pulmaria ink, and place on the card at a jaunty angle.

  5. Cut a piece of the Sage Green Medium cardstock to about 4.5 x 4.5, and tie round a piece of cream ribbon.  Mount to the card at an opposite jaunty angle to the Papaya.

  6. With the A5 Purple Cow cutter and the fluted blade, cut a piece of white cardstock to about 3.5 x 3.5 and stamp the mermaid image with Palette Noir.  Heat set and colour in with the COPICs (I only have a limited range, and there is a list of the colours somewhere on the blog).   Add the giveaway photocorner to the top righthand side and mount on the green matt.

  7. Line the inside of the card – I stamped the starfish image on mine.  I also tend to stamp the envelope with a co-ordinating image.
