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!

Best Wishes

…for the Season.

I was asked to create a card sometime ago in traditional colours which I’ve done but with a modern twist to it.  In fact this is the card we created at the hall last Friday.

I’ve used the “Detailed Ornament” Framelits, “This Christmas Speciality” DSP & the Softly Falling EF to create my card.  I also played with Dazziling Diamonds which I haven’t done in some time.

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’

Merry Christmas

I’ve been trying to create my Christmas Cards in time for 1 December as I have set myself a goal to have them in the mail by 1 December…..  Maybe wishful thinking but hey, I have to start somewhere.

My card today started out nothing like it finished but I am really happy with it.  I let the gorgeous “This Christmas” Speciality DSP be the star of the “show”.  I’ve combined it up with the lovely little bundle from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue“Holiday Berry” Stamp Set & the “Holly Berry” Builder Punch.

To finish my card I scattered a couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the Oval.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
