This Little Piggy - Team Training Make and Take


I finally got the chance to ink up my This Little Piggy stamp set! I decided to use it for the Make and Take project for this month's Team Training meeting.


This cute box is one of our Mini Pizza boxes. They really are sweet and easy to put together - with no glueing required!

I decorated it with some of our Fresh Florals 12" x 12" paper stack.


The images in this stamp set are so cute! Each one comes with it's own sentiment attached, BUT I trimmed these off so I could use them independently to the Piggie images.

This time I used 'Thank You's' from other stamp sets - Thoughtful Banners and Thankful Thoughts.


The cards are each 3" square, created to fit inside our new mini Whisper White envelopes - which fit the Pizza boxes perfectly :o)

Feeling Of Christmas - Clean and Simple


I used both Wreath images from the Feeling of Christmas stamp set for my previous card. This time (and for the next one) I am just using one of them.

I chose the detailed Wreath for this card and stamped it in Basic Black, off setting the Bow slightly at the top. 

All the colouring was completed using an Aqua Painter and the ink pads. The lights use Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry and the leaves Garden Green.


I stamped the Wreath's Bow a second time and cut it out by hand before layering it on top of the first one.

Out came my Stitched Shapes framelits again for the sentiment ... together with the Layering Ovals this time :o)

Season Like Christmas - Black and Gold


Here is another of my Season Like Christmas cards :o) It's not my favourite, but I wanted to experiment with the Gold embossing on the edges of the card.

I tried a couple of ways to do this but finally settled on using a Blender Pen to get a fairly straight line of Versamark onto the edges of the card. I then heat embossed it using Gold powder.


I used both of the foliage images. I stamped the first using Versamark and heat embossing with Gold before stamping the second. The Tree trunk was done last.
