A Little Table Present

I saw this idea some time ago and have been dying to make it. well I've done it now and I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I thought at the beginning that my way wasn't the stampin up way but it doesn't matter because we are all individuals and have our own style. so here's my take on it I can't find the link at the moment though I have tried. Inside are two Lindt chocolates. I've entered this for BlueJelly's challenge here and Make My M0nday

Morning Meadow 2

Today is a miserable Sunday but we have been in the garden this morning in between heavy showers. It was so good to be able to garden since the beginning of June, so a nice change.
This is another card from one of my Christmas workshops everyone is really pleased with it and it is relatively simple. I've used the Hostess set Morning meadow this is a real favourite of mine at the moment I've used it many times and not just for Christmas. The flowers can be cut out with the pansy punch but as I don't mind cutting out whilst I'm watching Television I don't have a punch. Some of my ladies love punching but whichever you choose you can purchase them by emailing me. The background leaves are stamped by using a spare piece of paper to stop any over stamping where you don't want it. The banners are made with cherry cobbler card and Champagne Glitter paper this is a tad expensive but I make up for that by punching small flowers out of any tiny bits left over they look great with Everything Eleanor Swirl . I'll show another day. I've also added a little sparkle on the green background.

Christmas 2


This is the follow up item to the last post a little more detailed with a bit more work. more my type but for Christmas the last one was much quicker when your in a  hurry. All these formed my December class (more to follow). I decided I'd stick to Cherry Cobbler and Champagne Glimmer Paper kit looks lovely with Old Olive leaves as well. I've got my grand children calling their colours by these names I don't know what their teachers think but I bet they ask why they call them by these names. Hee Hee! This is quite simple using the Lattice die, a circle die The bird punch for the leaves and the flower from Morning Meadow and a small centre punched with the owl punch I think this is the best punch I 've ever bought I use it for almost everything, Good job it's built to last.
