Trees of Autumn

This blog shows what I made last night. You can also see the sentiment inside the card.
Cardstock: chocolate Chip, creamy caramel, pumpkin pie, summer sun and whisper white.
Inks: Versamark, so saffron, old olive and chocolate chip.
Ribbon: 1/4" grosgrain ribbon very vanilla.
Accessories: paper piercing tool, stamp-a-ma-jig, die cut tag and the cuttlebug.
Adhesives:SNAIL and dimensionals.
Stamps: Trendy Trees and the sentiment is from the cheer and wishes set.
This card was quick and easy to do although the stamp-a-ma-jig is a must for the trees. I also spent a little time before I made the card checking my paper sizes as I have a habit of not getting it right which is frustrating for a perfectionist. I made the card first using paper and have kept a note of measurement's for future use......

It was worth it!!!!

I would just like to say a big thank you to my sister Georgina who has spent all day trying to teach me how to blog and download pictures etc. Gini I have managed to post 2 blogs all by myself. Now will I remember tomorrow? Watch this space......

Say it with Flowers

This is another of my thank you creations. Again I have used old cardstock supplies and decorated using stampin' up products.

The flower stamp is from the Greenhouse Garden set and the words from A Beautiful Thing set.
I have used my scallop edge and eyelet border punches, and brillant blue ink.

Thank You

Christmas has been and gone and now its time to say thank you for all those lovely presents!!! I have made this card using some of my old cardstock supplies and papers and added the decoration using the scallop circle punch, and stamps from A Beautiful thing set from stampin' up. I have inked around the scallop punch using Close to Cocoa ink. As always the SNAIL adhesive and dimensionals have been used.
So simple and quick to make which is just as well as I have many to do......
