Rudolph Day

Hi and welcome to April Rudolph Day, I am a tad late this month but I am here now!

I have made a start on my youngest Grandson's cards for his class mates and I decided to use this Woodware - on the Chimney Top stamp, very easy to colour.  I only made three cards with it last year so thought it deserved more and I had better use it before he stops believing in Father Christmas.

There are 9 cards here and you may notice that the chimney pots shown are in four different shades, this was not intentional it just so happened that I chose a Copic to colour the pots and it ran out and this happened three times.

The Ho Ho Ho comes with the stamp and I did not trust myself to stamp directly onto the card itself so I stamped it separate and punched it out with SU punch and guess what, the card stock I used were snippets of white card so guess where I am also heading - The playground of course week 174
Added streaks of glitter to the white area's

Only 21 cards to go and that is Austin sorted.
Do pop along to Scrappy Mo's and join in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Penny Black and More at Allsorts - Birthday's

Not too sure about this card- a tad old fashioned me thinks. 

Another larger than expected Penny Black stamp - Spring Beauty
Coloured with Pro-Markers.
Papers, no idea but they were 6 x 6 so therefore the ribbon covered the join and for once I did a half decent bow.
SU circle punch, ribbon, and red card
Few gems from collection
 and sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for popping by.

Pretty in Pink

The challenge this month over at Stamping Sensations is Pretty in Pink.
Stamp is Penny Black - pop pop poppy.
Rich Razzlebury card and ribbon
SU punch
Spellbinder dies.
Paper I have no idea.
Computer generated sentiment.
The circle and the backing of the sentiment were cut from snippets of the RR card therefore this is also going into the Snippets Playground.
I have also just realised that I can also enter this into the Allsorts challenge which this week is Bingo,
Bingo, I have a line, Ribbon, Flowers and Dies

I was quite shocked when this stamp arrived as it was much larger than I thought, cut it down using the Spellbinder circle die and it is a cling stamp and when I removed it from the clear block the impression from the back of the stamp was left on the block, how strange, never had that before.

By the way has anyone ever tried colouring a stamp using Promarkers or Copics on the actual stamp?
Bet it doesn't clean off.

Have a good week.

Pink to make the boys wink!


Well the title for the post came from when I was a girl, how it came about, I have no idea but it just popped into my head. I think I need a brain scan.

Once again I have tried and tried to get the advert picture for NBUS and yet again to no avail, sorry Darnell.

Rudolph Day - March 15

March is nearly over and everyone is thinking of Spring but over at Scrappymo's we are thinking of Christmas as it is Rudolph Day once again and with the huge downpour of hailstones we had Tuesday it might well have been.

While making the card for the Allsorts challenge to use brads, a couple of weeks ago, I had a go at making another.

I stamped the Woodware tree with VersaMark onto a snippet of red card and used WOW sparkling snow, embossing powder.
The backing is white glitter paper with SU ribbon, brads and metal stars from years ago.
Sentiment Craftwork Cards.

A long weekend at  Centre Parcs with Grandson's and their Mum and Dad, 5 hours in the pool on Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday really tired me out, and I was only spectating, I would have gone in but unfortunately I could not find my swimming costumn anywhere, to be honest I could not remember which Charity bag I had put it in, thank goodness.

Ok with the snippet of red this is also going into the Snippets Challenge week 169

For those of you with a nervous disposition, look away now,

I have bought two Birthday cards, I am still in shock and minus an arm and a leg.
