Shirts, Shirts and more Shirts


Here are the cards I have made for my children to give their father for Fathers' Day this year. The only problem I have is that I can't choose which ones to use. I spent today making the vest card, template came from Amy Celona site I made a few minor alterations, but all in all, the template was easy to use. I copied the template onto some heavy cardstock, so I will be making more of these cards for sure.

Colour Selector

While searching the internet this afternoon, (while working) I stumbled across this fantastic colour selection tool. Click on the icon on my sidebar and have a play. Best of all, it's FREE. I can't find who is responsible for this, but thank you anyway.

A Little Birdy Told Me

I saw this little booklet in the latest Kaiser craft magazine and instantly fell in love with it. All Kaiser craft products can be found at This project was definitely worth making, just to sit in my craft room. There are also printable sheets on the website for the names, addresses and birthday months. I would definitely recommend trying this project.

More Pun Fun

Here are the other cards I promised. All inspiration came from Becky Roberts, all I did was stamp and coloured them in. Hope you like them. I am going to be really upset when Stampin Up decide to discontinue this set. I have used it a lot on my blog, and can imaging that everyone is getting pretty sick of seeing them. Although, these card will probably not be the last you will see of Pun Fun.  :)

Baby Pram and Feeder

I found these little cards on Splitcoast Stampers the other day and just had to try them out.
All cards are used with the Sizzix Big Shot Scalloped Circle dies.
I am definitely making some more of these, in Bashful Blue, Barely Banana and Certainly Celery.
So easy, yet so effective.

Masking Technique

Here is the card my class will be making next week. We will be using the masking technique. Once again I have used my favorite stamp set. Pun Fun. I really must admit, I really love this set. I have masked the Hippo, to give the impression that he/she is standing in front of the other animals. The colour combination and card sketch came from Becky Roberts. I love the colours here together. Should be a great class. I have made a few more of these 'type' cards, so I will post the set once I have finished them properly.

Eastern Blooms

These cards here are made from a tutorial written by 'Demo to Demo', you can find the link on the left hand side of my blog. The tutorial has a card holder in it as well, but I just wanted to get the cards done for now.

Kissing Technique

Here is the card we made to demonstrate the 'kissing technique'. This is so simple to do, yet gives your stamps a whole different look.

You can find all instructions and examples of the techniques I have on my blog on the techniques tab under my main heading.
