Mario punch art birthday …

My nephew turned 10 last week.  We bought him a Mario computer game so I made a card to go with it …



I was inspired by a gift bag I’d seen on Pinterest here, and by the pictures on the game box too.  I used a variety of punches, but also did a little freehand cutting.

It seemed to go down very well with the birthday boy! 


So, have you discovered Pinterest yet? It is an amazing place for ideas and inspiration … or even just for admiration of all the beautiful creations by fabulously talented people out there! I love it!


I think, therefore I pin …


And whilst I wasn’t looking, my blog count reached over 50,000 hits! Oh my word – how did that happen?!

I am truly amazed and feel very honoured that there are so many people out there who like my blog enough to stop by for a look – so a great big thank you to all my blog readers – I am very thankful for your support.  Big hugs….


Card recipe: stamps: happiest birthday wishes (hostess set), just perfect alphabet; cardstock: whisper white, real red, tempting turquoise, early espresso, basic black, pacific point, blush blossom(skin colour, retired); inks: marina mist, real red; accessories: 1 3/4”, 1 3/8” and 1” circle punches, scallop edge punch, extra large and large oval punches, word window punch, 2 3/8”scallop circle punch, stampin dimensionals.

Party this way Tom!

A while back, my friend Jon asked me to make a card for his nephew, Tom, who is really keen on Ben 10. I didn’t know where to start at first as I have nothing in my craft stash like this at all! So Jon helped me out by giving me a picture of the character which I used as a topper on the card, mounted with stampin’ dimensionals 

I used the very versatile Party This Way stamp set from Stampin Up to stamp candles, balloons and the sentiment in so saffron, old olive and pumpkin pie onto whisper white cardstock, and then mounted these onto a green card base from my stash. 

I love the way it turned out, and does Ben 10 really wear old olive coloured trousers?  If not, it was a very good match!
