Loads of Eggs

How do you make easter cards without an easter stamp set?

You dig out your Loads Of Love set! This is a card we made at a workshop I held as a fundraiser for a local playcentre. I wanted to use colours that would be fine for both boys and girls so I chose Perfect Plum, Marina Mist and Certainly Celery.

Cute Cards

Here are a couple of cute little easter cards. They are really quick to make and you can use any foil wrapped shape as long as it has a flat back - I used santas last christmas.

Give it a try yourself...

Happy Easter

I love making bag toppers at this time of year - they are a perfect way to liven up some mini Easter Eggs and it makes a great gift.I used Easter Egg stamp from Loads Of Love Accessories, and the greeting from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

I also used my new Buttons Embosslet from the new Autumn-Winter Catalogue to make some co-ordinating buttons. A added Crystal Effects to make them glossy. What a great wat to make your own buttons to co-ordinate with any project.

Clean & Simple

For this clean, simple card I used my 'Sail Away' stamp again with Marina Mist on Whisper White cardstock.
It's difficult to see in the photo, but the image is framed top and botton with score lines. The taffeta ribbon and greeting from 'Stem Shillouettes' finishes it off.

With all the Easter goodies in the shops you can't help but notice that Easter in on the way. I don't have an Easter stamp set so I decided to use my punches to create this cute little chick. I've used him on a card and also on a little treat box (see below).
I've also used my new 'Framed Tulips' Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which has just been released in the new mini catalogue. The effect can be quite subtle, but it really pops up when you sponge ink as I have done for the grass.

Eat Chocolate!

When I saw the new 'Eat Chocolate' set in the new Autumn-Winter mini catalogue I just couldn't resist it - right up my street! I make lots of little gift boxes and most of them end up with chocolate in them, so this set will get lots of use. 
This chocolate pouch is my first project with the set. Admittedly the photo would have looked more effective if I had put a bar of chocolate in the pouch but chocolate doesn't last long in my house, so you'll have to use your imagination!
I inked up the stamp using Wild Wasabi and Real Red markers and it fits perfectly in the scallop oval punch.

Try it out yourself! Check out the set in the Autumn-Winter mini catalogue and e-mail me to place your order.

The Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue OUT NOW!

Ohh, this is what I've been waiting for... some gorgeous new products to play with!

Click on the Mini Catalogue link on the right to view the catalogue online, or e-mail me to request your copy.

Here's a card I made using one of the single stamps - Sail Away ($17.95). It is great for cards for any occasion, especially for the men in your life. The image looks great as it is, but it's also great for water colouring.

I've already made three cards using this stamp, one of which I will be teaching at my Quick Cards class on Sunday 3rd April (though not the one pictured here - that one will be a surprise!).
