Christmas Gift Tag

This is a really cute idea. The tag in a bag is one of Sarah's Surfaces by Hot off the  Press. They are not new but I still love them. This has been brought right up to date by using the new Jovial range of papers from Basic Grey . Love these! I have teamed them up with a little printed message, cut with a nestie, a tiny tag cut with QuicKutz and finished off with some Tim Holtz tissue tape - really love that stuff too.
Would make a great presentation folder for a gift card or voucher.

Autumn Beauties

Hi again,
I know I haven't posted for a while but I have been very busy and I'm not the most natural blogger in the world. I thought I'd show you just some of the things I've been up to in the past few weeks.

The owl is a Cuttlebug embossing folder which has been lightly inked over with Rusty Hinge distress ink. The leaves were quite dull brown card which we coloured with Stazon inks, stamped with a text background,  then inked with Versamark and covered in UTEE. They were then processed in the Melt Pot.  Much easier than chasing them around the room with a heat gun! 

This card features Graphic 45 Botanicabella - (some of my fave papers), BoBunny double dot, a Claritystamp verse and glitter peel off leaves. These were coloured with Stazon inks which completely transforms them into these gorgeous accents. The panels were cut using a nestie and some inking of the edges brings them all together.

These are two of the three cards we made in one of our Autumn classes. I can't show you the other one because it is being featured in Simply Cards & Papercraft's stamping supplement and I sent them the sample but forgot to photograph it, so go & buy the magazine and then you can see lots of lovely samples.

Hope you like them.
