Gorgeous Grunge

Good morning all, 
Here is another one of the cards I've made for Little Hippy's school Christmas Fair (to raise money for the PTA). The lovely ink blots you see are from Gorgeous Grunge - I find I use this stamp set an awful lot! 

The sentiment is actually from an old retired Hostess set but you could use absolutely any sentiment from any stamp set depending on who your card is going to, the mood, colours etc. 

I'm sorry for my distinct lack of posting at the moment! Even when I have got cards to showcase I either am finding it hard to find the time to blog them, or it is so dark that I can't get good enough light to photograph them! I wish the summer would come back.

White Christmas

Hello everyone!
I'm starting to feel a bit better, so I have been doing a little bit of crafting - yay!

When I say little, I mean little - today's card is a tiny notelet measuring just under 3x3 inches. They fit into the cutesy Square Envelopes (107309) sold by Stampin' Up! You get 40 high-quality envelopes for £6.75

White Christmas, Stampin' Up!

I used the "White Christmas" stamp set (135767) which is just beautiful; have a Google and see what AMAZING projects can be completed with this stamp set. It is one of Stampin' Up!'s photopolymer stamp sets and depsite my initial scepticism (I've always hated photopolymer!) I have to say they are really brilliant stamps. Well done Stampin' Up!

 A bit later on I'm going to add a little bit of glitter to them to finish them off. I will post up a picture of the finished article.
