Sail Away

This is a lovely stamp for mens cards and looks lovely in real life. Stamped with SU Night of Navy ink pad. Cardstock Night of Navy and Crumbcake.

Thanks go to Caroline for the Tutorial on Creating a Non-Embossed Focal Point, which the image is stamped on.

Fun Flowers Die

I made these brooches for the ladies that ordered SU from me last month. I bought my felt, in beautiful colours from Paper and String. I attached Brooch pins on the backs with my hot glue gun. they can easily be made into bookmarks by attaching some ribbon to the back.
Thanks for looking.

Sizzix Daisy Die 2.

For this card I have used the Sizzix Daisy 2 die for the flower. Designer papers Greenhouse Gala and the embossing folder Trellis from the new mini. Ribbon from my stash.
Im not sure whether to add a sentiment, it might just be too much.

Plain and Simple

I have made this card today for my Dad for Fathers Day. As he is in a home for elderly people with Dementia, I have used his name rather than DAD on the front. This is so that if anyone picks up the card and walks away with it, the carers will know who to give it back too.

I have used Plain and Simple from the Mini Catty and Schoolbook Serif alphabet from the main book.

Baby Tees and Bundle of Love

My daughter Shelley phoned this evening to ask for a baby card for tomorrow. This is normal, don't panic. So I looked on Splitcoaststampers for some inspiration and saw a card like this. So I cased it lol. Well you have too dont you.
The Babygro is from Baby Tees jumbo roller and the little teddy is from Bundle of Love stamp set as is the sentiment.
Ive used the label punch from the new mini catty to cut out the bottom.

Cased Bliss Card

I loved the look of this card and so simple to make. Thanks go to Bev Watt, who I cased it from. Bev makes lovely cards, go take a look. Thanks for stopping by. Lindax

Natures Walk

I love the Nature Walk stamps and Botanical Gazzette papers in the new Mini Carry.
Here are two cards made with both of these. It was really hard to cut into these beautiful papers. Just as well there are 2 of each. I can use on and save one to stroke.
