Card: Old Olive 12"x12", Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso

A Good Egg

I love chocolate.....noooooo I hear you say, not you!! So I just love Easter time and nothing better to make Easter treats is A Good Egg stamp set.

At my last craft club we had lots of fun creating an Easter card with sparkly spots, an egg filled basket with the cute chick emerging from her shell (must be a girl as she is very cute), and a decorated candle which is an ideal gift for those who can't have chocolate.

All items used are from Stampin' Up! and can be ordered from me. Just browse the catalogue at the top right and send me a message at

The items used to create the Easter class kit are as follows:

Stamp Set: A Good Egg
Ink: Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal
Card: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Pink Passion, Barely Banana
Glitter: Dazzling Diamonds
Ribbon: Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery 1/4" Grosgrain
Accessories: Medium Cellophane Bags

Greenhouse Garden

Well, this is my take on the design shown on page 43 of the current catalogue! It took a while to master lining up the flowers on the background with the ones on the front panel, but I am very pleased with the result and hope my Mum will be pleased to receive it on Mother's Day (no peeking Mum ;-)

The treat bag is half an A4 sheet of card with rounded ends, decorated with a background stamp and punched with the scallop circle punch to make the window. A small cellophane bag, add a few stamped Greenhouse Garden flowers, a few chocs, tie up with ribbon. Easy...!

All supplies used are from Stampin' Up! Browse the catalogue through the link on the right and if you would like to order, just e-mail me at

Supplies used:
Stamp Sets: Greenhouse Garden, En Francais, Occasional Greetings, Happy Moments (Saleabration set)
Card: Almost Amethyst, Confetti White, Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac
Ink Pads: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Perfect Plum, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Certainly Celery
Punch: Scallop Punch
Ribbon: Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Small cellophane bags

Flight of the Butterfly....

These 2 projects were made using the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set which is so pretty. The co-ordinating punch makes it easy to punch out the stamped butterflies. The handbag card is secured with Velcro spots and can be opened to put your message inside.

The 3D card design is taken from a Stampin' Up! publication and as I had never seen one like this before, decided to give it a go! It can be folded flat to send in the post.

Cheers to You!

A great stamp set to start a new year of crafting!
At my first craft class of 2010, we made 3 cards with a drink theme - beer and cocktails. The pop up card featured a cocktail recipe on the front and inside there was a cocktail glass. The beer glass was given a glossy look with Crystal Effects and the bubbly froth was made using white liquid applique and a heat gun. Hope you like them!
