Weekly Inspiration - Day 2

 Classes continued.

Today's card is another from a class Cary and I recently held. 

 this first card is another very straight forward one which is in Whisper White, Soft Sky and Night of Navy and Silver Foil cardstock.

I embossed the Snowflake onto the Silver Foiled Card using the beautiful Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal catalogue.

Then I matted the foil onto the Soft Sky, added a piece of the Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon together with a bow and added them onto the Night of Navy mat.  


All then stuck to the Whisper White, Thick card base. 

I repeated the coloured mats outside and inside with messages from the Labels to love stamp set.

Here are the beautiful cards that our ladies made. 
Once again they have made such lovely, unique cards.

weekly Inspiration - Classes

OMG! How can I follow that? 
Cary made the most gorgeous boxes last week that will be just perfect for those Christmas gifts that I will be giving this year.  Well done and thank you Cary.
Cary and I hold classes several times a month and this week I am going to show you some of the beautiful cards that our ladies have made.

The first 4 pictures are the card that I made as an example for what can be done.

I matted the layers using Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Gold Foiled paper.
The wreath and central flower is from Santa's Sleigh stamp set.

The message is also from Santa's Sleigh and the Reindeer is from the Santa's Sleigh Framelits.

This is our ladies first project for the evening.

They are absoloutely gorgeous ladies. I love the little red noses on them. 

Thank you

Hello again, 

I moved house just over 10 day ago and for about the last 3 weeks, Cary has been marvellous once again. She has been posting all of the projects and carrying everything off amazingly
while I packed and then unpacked, what seems like hundreds of boxes!

I must therefore say a VERY BIG


You are a total superstar, thank you, thank you and thank you again Cary.

Not quite as it seems....

Today's inspiration was inspired by a YouTube video for an origami box here 
I used 2 sheets of 12" d 12" double sided pattern paper from the Merry Moments DSP  from Stampin Up   for the black and white sample and 2 pieces of 6"×6" for the small green box.
Well that's it for me this week I hope you've enjoyed the samples and perhaps you'll have a go at making a box or 2 yourse5😊
Have a good weekend  please join us next week for some more inspiration 😊
Have fun

Oh la la....

Today's inspiration was inspired by the beautiful old hat boxes.  Straightaway I thought Berry Burst and black, l love that colour combo 😊
I made these using the layering oval dies and the label punch from Stampin Up of course  😉
They are quite small but perfectly formed for those delicious extra special truffles or maybe jewels .

Pass the parcel...

Do you like the suspense of opening a parcel? I do 😊 well with this trip you get the suspense multiplied by 3! Lol
These nesting cube boxes are inspired by ones I've seen on the internet but sadly I can't find the link to the original that inspired me.😕 so a big thank you to the lovely person who shared their talent.
My boxes range in size from 4" cube to a 2"cube. The outside are made from pattern paper and each box has a card stock liner to give the box strength.

All boxed up.....

Well it's been a while since our last post but there is a good reason...Gill has moved house!! And as we all know it's a crazy crazy time!!Lol
So this week's inspiration is all boxes ...to celebrate Gill still being surrounded hee hee hee 😉
Today's box is a very simple  box with a wrap round cover so it looks a little like a book . The closure is on the belt and is a small magnet.

Blue blue christmas.. .

Today's card is made using glossy paper again but this time I used not only reinkers dropped onto the set cardstock but also droplets of wink of Stella. I do so wish I could take better photos especially for this card because in real life it shimmer and sparkles beautifully!
We'll thats it for this week I do hope you have a lovely weekend and will join us next week for more inspiration 😊
Have fun
Cary xx

Time to.....

Today's sample is made with Gill in mind.
 Gill is moving house on Monday and as everyone who has ever done such a thing will know it's one of the most stressful times in our lives so as the card says Gill...Just breathe!!!
The background of the card was created using glossy cardstock , reinker and clear embossing resist technique.
Firstly I used the embossing buddy to ensure the card was grease free then clear embossed the leaves. Then I spritzed the card lightly with weather and dropped reinker directly on top.You have to work fairly fast on this one to avoid to much mess ...or not if you're me 😉 now spritz again to allow the ink to flow the embossed areas will remain white and the images will emerge. Allow to dry thoroughly.
