Today I am show casing the new Decorette die no. 6.


The red dots indicate where to cut to obtain the tree shape.

For my card I laid down a mat of red card. I cut 3 shapes with the new Decorette no. 6 die and 3 jigsaw shapes using die Set of Three no.18 Puzzle pieces
I cut tree shaped (diagram above), added foam pads and stuck them on my card. I then added the pearls to decorate the trees. I then added pots for the trees which are 3 shapes cut using the jigsaw die. I added ribbon and bows to finish off my card. I hope you like it and gives you some Christmas inspiration.
I used the following Crealies products to make my card.

Cup Cake




Today I am sharing my pretty cup cake with you all.  I love a bit of recycling and you may not believe that my Cup Cake started out as a Costa Coffee cup. Although it was time consuming it was so easy to make and don't you just love those colour tones together.
If you want to make one you will need one empty cardboard coffee cup, 1 polystyrene ball, 1 sheet of card, pearl ended pins, flowers and embellishments to decorate.
Here's what to do:-  Cut your cup down to the size to suit you. Secure your ball in the cup so that it stands out at the top. If it is a bit small fill your cup with scrunched paper first. I covered my ball with some tissue paper first in case there were any spaces between the flowers where the ball may show. Score a length of thin card (I used a 12" length and cut of the excess after I had scored and creased it) Concertina the scored card and glue to your cup. Use different sizes of  die cut flowers to cover the ball securing with  pins. Decorate to finish.

I used Crealies flower and butterfly dies

Autumnal PB


A mid month Autumnal card and a reminder that the Penny Black and More challenge is open until the end of this month. There are several craft prizes up for grabs so pop over to the blog for all the details. 
For my card I used up some old stash. The white flowers and stamped image have been in my craft stash for so long it is a wonder they have not yellowed. Every time I tried to use the cute image it just did not seem to work but hey hothis time it has found it's place and I am pleased. As the background paper was quite fussy i used minimal colouring on my image.

I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

Picking flowers





A. Using Crealies Creative flower die No 21 cut two flowers.
    B. Ink the edges of the petals on both flowers.
Curl the petals with a piercing tool as in the picture above.
B1. Add Flower Soft to the centre of one of the flowers.
C. Glue both the flowers together spreading the petals out evenly.

Crealies items used:


Creative Flowers stans no. 21 / Creative Flowers die no. 21Creative Shapes stans no. 22 / Creative Shapes die no. 22
Duo Dies no. 6 Butterflies 2

Autumn colours PB


Is Autumn really here? Our so called "Summer" passed so quickly. I remember playing out in the 6 weeks school summer holidays when I was a child. Almost very day was a beautiful sunny day and at the end of the holidays we were always brown as berries. Where did that weather stream disappear to?

The theme for this month's challenge at Penny Black and More is Autumn colours and there are several great craft prizes up for grabs. Just remember no digi stamps. Pop over to the blog for all the details.
For my card I used an assortment of Autumnal coloured papers and some gorgeous orange ribbon with silver thread which has been in my stash for years. I used one of my favourite PB stamps, a sentiment and pearls to finish it off.

Summer floral


Today I am show casing my Summer card 
made using Crealies Create-a-card no CCAC 07
It creates this beautifully shaped card.
 I used pretty pink card with a lovely lacy pattern
 and added Crealies die cut flowers and butterflies
to different sections on the card.
    A sentiment and organza ribbon finished it off perfectly.

I used the following Crealies items.

Crealies Create A Card stans no. 7 / Crealies Create A Card die no. 7


I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

What a poser!


My son and granddaughter have been staying with us for the week. My granddaughter loves to do her Catwalk pose for camera shots. We had a busy week and I now need a holiday to get over it! 
On a day out, my husband and granddaughter had got ahead while I was lagging a bit behind walking with the aid of my stick. Noticing I was getting further away from them, my granddaughter shouted back at me " Nanny I wish you were not so old so you could walk quicker"
Don't you just love them to bits.

Penny Black and SU


I recently won a huge parcel of SU goodies and this is the first card I have made using some of the papers in the stash. The paper is lovely to work with as it has a substantial weight to it ( thin card really ). The colours are rich and gorgeous too.
The Penny black stamp I used is one of my favourite stamps.  She looks so cute on her Bicycle.
A quick reminder too that it is midway of the Penny Black and More challenge this month. A nice and easy "Anything goes" challenge. Remember to use a stamped image (no digis allowed) and not a sentiment for your main image. Pop over to the blog to see the lovely work made by the PB DT.
