Perfect spiced paisley pattern…

These are the make and take projects I did at my friend, Ruth’s, craft evening recently.  They’re a variation on the make and takes we made at my upline, Michelle’s, crafting day a little while back.  I loved them so much I just had to share…

I love the spiced paisley stamp set, available in the mini catalogue until the end of April 2012.  This stamp set is such great value at just £20.95 for a set of 7 stamps in wood mount, or £16.95 in clear mount. 

We stamped a random pattern over a piece of 12”x12” whisper white cardstock, and then with a little cutting and scoring, made a box and cards from it.  We stamped on the envelopes to make a complete matching set. And nothing went to waste – we even made a matching bookmark from the offcuts. 

Everyone did really well and were very proud of what they produced as they had taken a blank piece of card and turned it into something so pretty with just a little stamping, cutting and scoring. 

That’s what I love so much about Stampin’ Up!  Their products are so fabulous that they make it so easy to produce such great, professional results!  Thank you Stampin Up!

Charming background papers…

What I love most about the Charming stamp set from Stampin’ Up is how easily the stamps can be used to make your own background papers.  I loved playing with the stamps and trying out stamping in a random pattern, or using my stamp-a-majig for perfect placement. 

A few months ago, I received a beautiful card from my friend, Deborah.  I admired it so much I asked her if I could case it … Stampin’ Up! style.  This is my take on it…



And this is Deborah’s original…


A big thank you to Debs for letting me copy and share her design – she is such a talented crafter and a fabulous friend.
