Lovely as a Tree

Hello Crafters

Above is another card that we made yesterday at the church Stamp a Stack. A very successful day even if I did forget to take the envelopes for the cards with me!!! The ladies enjoyed making the four designs and one lady who was only making 10 decided to make 20, so I can't have been that bad!

This card was made from a design on Michelle's blog from several years ago, I still like the simpleness of the design and how elegant it looks.

Thank you for looking at my blog.

Lovely As A Tree stamp set. Real Red, Crumb Cake and Whisper White Card Stock. Real Red, Soft Suede and Whisper White Inks.

Pinkies Blog Hop

We're so glad you could join us on our blog hop. We'll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® 2012-2013 Catalogue.
Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep on hopping. We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

If you have just arrived from the lovely Nicole Foinette's blog "Welcome" I hope you enjoyed her cards, what inspirational use of the new Word Play stamp set.

Even though this is the second Pinkies Blog Hop, this is my first time blog hopping so I hope you like my creations.

After seeing several cards of this design out there in blog land, I thought I might give it a go.  

The stamp set I have chosen to use is called Creative Elements (£29.95 wood or £23.95 clear) and Curly Cute (£17.95 wood or £13.95 clear).  All the cards have been made using Whisper White Card stock.
Colours used on the above card:
Whisper White Card Stock.  Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Inks. 
Colours used on the above card:
Whisper White Card Stock.  Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive and Pool Party Inks. 
Colours used on the above card:
Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive and Melon Mambo Inks.

I also added an insert inside and decorated it.  Yes I even decorated the envelope ( I know I'm sad, but just imagine the receivers' face when that envelope drops through their letter box).

And I liked the design so much I will be making a some Christmas card ones in the next few weeks.

If you would like any more information on what I have used please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Please hop onto the lovely Michelle Last's blog to see what she has created with the beautiful Summer Silhouettes set.

Monthly Training Swops

Hello Crafters

Just returned from Pinkies' Quarterly Training in Bicester. 

At these events we make swops so that we take say 20 swops and bring home 20 new ideas.

I didn't have much time to make them this month so I decided a takeaway cuppa was called for, but forgot to add the teabag (as pointed out to me by one of the other Pinkies) or even a straw for a cool drink.

They would make nice party invites(I would say bbq invites but think it may be too late for them now!).
Thank you for looking at my blog.
