Stampendous P107 !!


Happy Monday peeps, hope you all had a good weekend.

Not a lot to report from this end and before anyone asks, no the decorating is not finished, still very much work in progress. I just don't know how these jobs can take so long, was the time when I'd have had the job whipped in a day. So a swift crafty share or two so I can get on top of my office work.........does help when the boss is hubby........and hopefully slope off early to have another stab at the decorating.

My first card is a little bit of indulgence with all time favourite stamp Stampanedous P107........I know all you ladies who come to my classes and demos will have a little grin here..............stamped with Big and Juicy spice and embossed with detail clear and Hero Arts S5316 silhouette grass stamped in the background. Distressed round the edges, a punched flower liberally spritzed with Glimmer Mist pearl and one of the new Kaiser DP's. The sentiment is Hero CG189. This card is for the following challenges:

Paper Playtime - PS I love you - Stampendous P107 of course
One Stitch at a Time - Favourite colours


My second share is yet another easel card.......at least the shape is different...... I started by spritzing the background with Glimmer Mist electric blue and honey dew mist then stamped Penny Black 3880K Fantasy with versafine black, embossed with detail clear and added sparkle with stickles. I am not certain, but I think the pretty glittery DP is K&Co and the sentiment is Penny Black 4116G.

Wild Orchid - Blue Christmas
Pollycraft - Glittery Christmas
Crafty Pad - Christmas Sparkle
Crafty Calendar - Winter with snowflake option (they are on the border)
Paper Sundaes - Topping bar ( punches, ribbon embossing and the colour blue - full house and a huge Sundae !)

The trouble with decorating is that it encourages cleaning never a good use of time LOL Now just stripping back and leaving it gives you the perfect excuse to not do more than the basic essintials leaving time for important things.

2 Glorious cards my dear simply love them both, and the PB tree is fast becoming a favourite of mine. Don't work to hard xx Zoe

Annette said...
