Pootlers Christmas Blog Hop

I love this time of year.



The new autumn/winter catalogue is out and we are having our team blog hop.

Every time  Stampin' Up! release a new catalogue our team have a little blog hop showing casing some of the fabulous new products.

I have used the Perfectly Plaid stamp and punch bundle along with the gorgeous wrapped in plaid designer series paper to create my card.

I have also used a little bit of gold embossing on the centre tree.

I love how simple this card was to make.


I stamped the two trees in shaded spruce and a piece of white card stock which I cut using the stitched rectangle dies.  I then heat embossed the centre tree in gold and punched this one out.


I then stamped the greeting again in shaded spruce and added this across the front.

I cut another piece of the wrapped in plaid designer series paper from a larger stitched rectangle die. 

I just love this set as it has a warm Christmas feel to it.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Have fun joining in the hop and check out all the other gorgeous projects.

Daring Cardmakers - Numbers.

Hello everyone.

We have a new challenge over at Daring Cardmakers.

Our host this week is Ruth who would like to see numbers featured on your cards.

I was asked to make a special birthday card for a friends husband and this is what I came up with.

I was told he was getting a personalised number plate so I featured that and the age on my card.


I made the number plate using a rectangle stitched die.  I then used the Geared Up Garage stamp set along with the matching dies called Garage Gears which are from Stampin' Up!


I kept the colour scheme simple to make the number plate the main focus.  I always find masculine cards so difficult.


Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog to see more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a great weekend.

Daring Cardmakers Catch Up - Splish, Splash, Splosh

Hello everyone.

Here is my 2nd Daring Cardmakers catch up post.

This challenge was called Splish, Splash, Splosh.

This time the team wanted to see your cards created with watercolours, inks or paints to create a focal point, background or accents for your project.

I decided to play with brushos to create a fun background.

I love playing with these lovely powders which react with water and you never know what your background will look like.

I sprinkled some of the powders over a piece of watercolour card.  I then sprayed some water over the powder and watched the magic happen.  I wanted the background to look like an under water scene.  I tried to keep the blues and purples at the top and the greens along the bottom.

I then added some seaweed and a anchor using the Sailing Home Bundle from Stampin' Up!  I also stamped the little fish using a retired stamp set.


I then finished my card with lots of sequins to look like bubbles.

Please check out the challenges over at Daring Cardmakers.  
We would love to have you join in.
