As I mentioned last week I’ve been playing more with the Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies to try and make a shaker card and I’m pleased to say I managed it and I really love how this card turned out. Continue reading “Detailed Santa Shaker Card”

If you watched my video last week you will know I’m not a huge fan of Halloween or its associated products but there were a couple of sets in the Autumn/Winter catalogue that I just had to have and Cookie Cutter Halloween was the first, I just love these cute little characters. For my one Halloween card I mixed Cookie Cutter Halloween, Ghoulish Grunge and Mr Funny Bones and here is what I came up with Continue reading “Happy Halloween”

I made this card after having a little play with the Detailed Santa Thinlits as I just wanted to see how they worked and what exactly the die cut out. The answer is the Cherry Cobbler part of this card. Continue reading “Cherry Cobbler Detailed Santa Card”
One of the new Hostess sets in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue is Holly Jolly Layers, a perfect set to match up with the Layering Framelits sets and create some festive tags. Today I have used the “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” stamp as a focal point for my cards.
Both cards use the greeting as focal point and to make them stand out even more I used my Stampin’ Markers to highlight the word Merry on each card. Here is the Crumb Cake version on its own:
For these cards I used the 12 x 12 sheets to create cards which were 4″ by 6″ in size so I could fit six 1″ squares down the side. For this Kraft version I used scraps from the Candy Cane Lane DSP and some red metallic thread to embellish.
The Cherry Cobbler version uses the same idea but uses scraps from the Presents and Pinecones DSP and is embellished with the green metallic thread.
I love this simple design and think if you changed the sentiment it could work for any occasion and with any of our dsp packs. Which is perfectas they are currently buy three packs get a fourth free, so just think how many versions of this design you could make, with one sheet of dsp producing 144 1″ squares!
