Mini Cups…

… of Ferrero Rochers.  Now who doesn’t love these gorgeous yummy chocolates?  I can’t have them in my house as they would not last 5 minutes.  Lets face it – I LOVE chocolate…..

I found this idea on Pinterst sometime ago but didn’t keep the link, so thank you very much for your inspiration & tutorial.  I’m sure if you googled them, they would come up.  I think I saw a tutorial along the way on You Tube using the Envelope Punch Board but I didn’t use that.  I also made my own spin on them including little doilies or saucers.

As I’ve mentioned I did a Christmas Fair a couple of weeks ago & these were another item very popular with the public.  I also gave them to a group of ladies when we went out for lunch a week or so ago.

These ladies I had not seen since our days in Darwin while in the Navy together.  It was like we had only seen each other yesterday as our conversations carried on where we left off all those years ago.  It is fantastic to have great friends but if you haven’t been in the forces, the friendships formed cannot be truly understood.

Anyhow, I am off the track – Along with “This Christmas” Speciality Paper for my cups, I’ve used the lovely little Stamp Set “Holy Berry Happiness” Bundle from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue and the greeting from “Teeny Tiny Sentiments” Stamp Set.  The little doilies/saucers were created using the “Layering Circles” Framelits.

Aren’t they just too cute?

Until next time, Enjoy!

Merry Christmas

I had a stall at the local Christmas Fair 2 weeks ago.  Wow, talk about being organised & so well set up.  I couldn’t believe it.  Thank you so much to John & the team.  Thank you to Wendy, Irene & their volunteers who help set up Santa’s Workshop for the kids – they loved it.

I like to create packs of 3 x 3 Gift Cards for Christmas & find they are very popular.  This year I decided to use the new “Holly Berry Happiness” Bundle from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.  The packs have 6 cards & envelopes in each.

I stamped the Holly Image direct onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Garden Green Ink.  The “Merry Christmas” is from “Teeny Tiny Sentiments” & was stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink. 

The bow was stamped in Real Red Ink direct onto scraps of Real Red Card before punching with the coordinating Holly Punch & adhering to the Holly with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

The piece was then layered onto the Base Card of Real Red.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Christmas Wishes

I’m still plugging along with my Christmas Cards & must say that now I have created a few, I am slowly getting into them.

My card today started out as a case from the Annual Catalogue but again, took a mind of its own.  Looking at it now, it is nothing like the one on Page 26.

I’ve used the lovely Holly Textured EF, along with the cute Holly Berry Happiness Bundle from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, plus a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Rhinestones & Baker’s Twine.  I’ve teamed the Whisper White with Pool Party, Crushed Curry & Chocolate Chip, which I must admit I would never have teamed up together but am loving the colours!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Pretty Pattern Papers – October

G’day Stampers,

Today is the launch of our new “Pretty Pattern Papers” Tutorials.  This month we are getting ready for Christmas.

We’ve played with the lovely “This Christmas” Speciality DSP, Page 27 (Ideas) & Page 172 of the Annual Catalogue.  Along with the DSP, we’ve used lots of lovely Christmas Stamps – “Holly Berry Happiness Bundle” from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, “Peace This Christmas” which coordinates with the DSP & “Reason for the Season“.

Don’t forget, in the Tutorial, you receive a Sketch, List of Products, Measurements (Metric & Imperial) & Instructions.  It is a way to get you to use up that lovely stash of Paper you have sitting in your cupboard. This is the perfect time to make a start on your Christmas Cards.

Throughout the month, I will be creating more cards using this lovely paper, so be sure to pop back to check them out.  You can also check out this Christmas Card I created last week using this DSP.

We hope you will join us this month.  To purchase your Tutorial, please click on the Pretty Pattern Papers Page.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
