Sparkles From Our Family To Yours

Well, I've caught up with all my posts so this is the last one for today!  I'm sharing some very quick and simple designs for Christmas mass production...

Stamps - Christmas Sparkle & Christmas Sparkle Too / Ink - VersaMark / Other - Gold & Silver Embossing Powder

I'm going into hibernation mode for the rest of the week because my husband is away again (Paris, London and Holland this week) and the children are with my brother, whom they infinitely adore!  No doubt I'll be spending a lot of time in my craftroom to pass the hours :)

Thanks a million for your company and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

Stephanie xoxo

Heartfelt Thanks

Jenny coloured these flowers months ago and I almost forgot to make a card with them, what a waste that would have been!

Stamps - On Your Day & Say What? / Dies - Frame It Die Collection / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black / Colouring Medium - FaberCastell Polychromos

Only one more post today, until the next time...I very rarely switch on my laptop which is why I'm always multi posting when I do, hope you don't mind too much!

Age Gets Better With Wine

Stamps - Gorgeous Gifts & Say It's Your Birthday / Dies - Gorgeous Gifts Die Collection / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black / Colouring Medium - FaberCastell Polychromos

Thank You

It took me a very long time (and several attempts) to get this background stamping right but I found it quite relaxing and very satisfying when it was done.  It was achieved with the aid of grid paper and that clever little stamping tool called the MISTI :)

Stamps - Fruitful & Scrumptious Script / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; VersaMagic Dew Drops / Other - Black Twine

Stamps - Sincerest Thanks / Dies - Frame It Die Collection / Ink - VersaMark / Other - Gold Embossing Powder

I've got more cards to share today than I originally thought, thank you so much for bearing with me :)

You Make My Heart Flutter

These little birds were a previous best seller for us, but after receiving feedback regarding the size of them (too small!), we've made them a little bigger and brought them back :)


I have quite a few more cards to share today, if you are subscribed to this blog, I apologise profusely for spamming your inbox today!
