25 February 2014 – Is it a box or is it a card?

Now that is the question!! I’ve seen lots of Card in a Boxes on Pinterest and Facebook and it was time I jumped on the band wagon!!

I found a great tutorial by Tanya Bell, check out her blog here, and I was on my way. Once you get the cutting and scoring done, it’s up to you how you decorate it.

I love the Sale-a-bration paper, Sweet Sorbet (well all of it except the black print, yucko!!) so it was perfect for this card. I also used the matching SAB stamp set, Petal Parade.

We made this at Stamp club this weekend and the ladies loved it, except for cutting out the petals!! Not my favourite part, either!! Especially when I made up the extras and had to cut out 12 petals!!

I’m sending one of these to my grandmother who is unwell, so hopefully it will cheer her up!

12 October 2012 – I’m addicted!!

My name is Rebecca and I’m addicted to Pinterest!!!  I just love it!!  I’ve pinned so many cards to make.  I don’t think there is enough time to make everything I’ve pinned!!  But I have been inspired by them all.  Here is a card from a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from Germany, Judith Laureano.  I changed a couple of details as I used the Adorning Accents edgelit for the scallops and  the Decorative label punch for the sentiment.

I really love the Lacy Brocade embossing folder.  It is very noice!!!

Tell me what you think!

29 September 2012 – Festive Friday Challenge

I came across the Festive Friday Challenge at Nicole Derendorf’s blog and thought it was a nice, easy sketch that I could do.  I immediately thought of the Festival of Prints DSP stack in the Holiday catalogue.

It was hard to choose which paper to use, so I picked 5 different ones.  My next dilemma was finding a small stamp to fit into the Modern label punch.  Most of my small word stamps have retired but I managed to find one in the Petite Pairs stamp set which fitted nicely.  I matted it on the ends and then added a decorative label punch with the silver glimmer paper as it is Christmas after all and we need to have some bling!!  This would be a great card for mass production as it doesn’t take very long to put together.

I’d love it if you would leave a comment so that I know there’s someone having a look!

Here’s a close up of the bling.

24 September 2012 – Quilts

I have dabbled in lots of crafts including embroidery, cross stitch, folk art, stamping, scrapbooking and patchwork over the years.  I was crusing around Pinterest the other day (don’t you just love it!! I am addicted!!) and found a card that looks like a wedding ring quilt!!  Turns out this gorgeous card was featured on Mary Fish’s blog, Stampin’ Pretty, which I also love.  The card was made by Ellen Smallwood.

I recently purchased the lattice die and this is a great way to showcase it!  Here’s my version of Ellen’s card.

Here’s a close up of the “wedding ring quilt”.  I have “quilted” it with the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder from the Holiday catalogue.
