For you.....

Today I thought I would make some small 3" x 3" cards only because I purchased the little envelopes last week and fell in love with them!

I found that the lovely elegant image from the Morning Meadow hostess stamp set fitted perfectly on this little card.

Once again a very quick, simple card.
I stamped the image using Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky and Coastal  Cabana inks finishing off with a lovely bow using the silver ribbon topped off with a Rhinestone.

This would be lovely presented in a small hand made & decorated box too.  My next project!

Take care

Playday Oct 2013 - Swaps

As usual we had a great day, with lots of good company, inspiration and lots of chat!

I would like to share the swaps that the talented ladies presented me with.

Sarah's  swap using her favourite stamp set Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge.  Loved the colour combo on this one.
Liz's card was once again using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and the owl punch.  Clever Liz!... very creative

 Lesley's  swap was a show stopper!  This 3d star is right up my street so to speak. stamped and embossed in silver, onto silver card stock.  Such a brilliant idea which can be used as a festive decoration on the Christmas tree or on its own.   If you wish to see how to make this, Lesley has been kind enough to post this on her blog lesleyscraftroom.blogspot.com
Last but definitely not least, Ros presented us with this gorgeous tea light holder which she had decorated using the same versatile Star stamp that Lesley had used on her swap.

Well there you have it.
I will be back to share with you the make and takes that we shared at our play day.

Thanks for stopping by
Take care
