FAVES Times Two!


I'm back this morning to share a card using 2 of my favourite stamp sets from the Uniko Studio October Release & 2 of my favourite colours for Christmas cards...

I started out by revisiting a layout I've used recently on this card I shared HERE, I just elongated it to a 14 x 10.5 cm card. The colours I've used and more specifically the inks are the new line of VersaMagic Inks that Caz has in the shop. They stamp wonderfully and so vibrant don't you think? 

This was a super quick card to make, another to add to the mass produceable list, if required! I added some rhinestones to the snowflakes, but to make it mail friendly a bit of glitter would look just as pretty.

DON'T FORGET I will be at The Paperlane on Saturday 9th November 10 am - 2 pm FREE Demo & also there are a couple of places left in the class 2 pm - 5 pm!  I'd love to see you!

Jolly Christmas!


It's Beverley here with another little JOLLY Christmas card to share & also remind you all about my upcoming demo & class at The Paperlane on Saturday 9th November! There are a few places left on the class so be sure to book with Caz to secure yours.

Anyway, I made this little card to share with you all...

Yup, I've inked up Jolly Santa from Jolly Christmas and had fun with a little paper piecing. I rarely use patterned paper in my cards even though I have a HUGE stack of lovely papers! I decided to use a patterned paper from Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday. Along with using the paper for Santa I decided to add a strip down either side of the white panel he is stamped on.

I added a sentiment also from the Jolly Christmas set to a banner & some glitter to add a little sparkle & finish things off.  Paper piecing is just one of the techniques we will be doing in the class on Saturday, it's so much fun and can add a totally different look to your projects.

Thanks for stopping by today & I hope to see you on Saturday ;)
