Upsy Daisy

This is one of my favourite new stamp sets - UPSY DAISY.

It is so quick and easy to make up any kind of female card. I have used it for birthdays and today I am giving the bottom right one to Boston's favourite daycare teacher who is leaving. He will be so sad (if he notices she is gone).

Very simple cards using designer series paper, wide oval and large oval punches, the Upsy Daisy Stamp set and black/barely banana backing cardstock.

Bron's 30th


I love this colour combination - Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Pixie Pink and a dash of Pretty in Pink & Old Olive.

Background is "Kindness" wheel silver embossed. Main stamp set is "Scribble This" coloured with markers with flower sitting up on dimensionals.

Greeting is "One of a Kind". Ribbon is SU white grosgrain and 3 pearls added to top right.

Gift tag was used on present, can be used as a bookmark.

Gift Card holder crazy

I have been making all sorts of gift card holders. I just love this pattern. It can be turned into any theme. It makes a gift card a bit more special. This is the other idea I had for our next stamp a stack. They are so easy. Follow the link below to see instructions.

The inside has a popped out kind of flap where the card sits. There are actually two sides where you could write in the card. These would also be great for Christmas stacks. I tried hard to do a couple of boy cards as they are the most likely to get gift cards - what do you buy them?

Wild About You Boys & Girls

Here is a couple of young kids cards. The lion is in Really Rust and Summer Sun and uses some retired designer series paper, circle punches, twill tape and linen thread.

The elephant is Going Gray with Pretty in Pink. The background is jumbo wheel Kindness in black with white gel pen colouring. Gel pen is also used with mat pack to create the faux stitch look around the elephant. Hostess set Best Yet is used for the wording.

I am thinking about using the elephant one in our next stamp a stack. I think it could be very versatile as a baby card, boys or girls card depending on the colours used.

April Stamp A Stacks

For those who weren't there, here is what you missed from my first ever stamp a stack. It was a one sheet wonder, turned into 9 different cards and a handbag box to keep them in.

Card colours in this one is chocolate chip and rose red with Berry Bliss (retired) designer series paper. Also uses choc chip taffeta ribbon and various stamp sets.
