How is this for a cheeky Christmas card? A pair of stripy stockinged Elfen legs. I made this card at quarterly team training along with the gift box and I have a few more projects to share over the next few days so prepare to feel unseasonably Christmassy!
The shoes have each been made from a quarter of a top note die which was then shaped further using the ornament and circle punches, the shoes were then topped with a glimmer brad and a bow. The gorgeous stripy stockings are from the Holly Berry designer papers and the greeting from Petite Pairs.

Hello, I'm back from a fabulous weekend away crafting :) I will share what I made later in the week but for now I have a card using the lovely Bordering on romance stamp set that is available from Stampin' Up's current mini catalogue.
The image has been stamped and coloured with blender pens or you could use watercolours for an even softer effect, hmm I may have a go with that later on. I used the embossing frames around the image and cut it out, I haven't used the frames much yet but I like this effect. Now, do you like my bow? I so struggle with tying a neat bow sometimes it can be a bit hit and miss but Amanda showed me a new technique. I punched a hole in the base card and threaded my ribbon around the card and through the hole before tying the bow. Neat huh!

I really like his one, I'm sure I will use this technique a lot. Amanda showed us at her class a few weeks back and it's really very simple. The stamp set is Simply Soft and is exclusive to hostesses, the greeting is from Petite Pairs. to begin with the design is stamped in one colour on a base card then on another piece of card stamp again. This extra piece needs to be punched or cut, coloured (for this sample we used markers and a blender pen) and then mounted onto a piece of card colour coordinating with the main card base, in this case we used rose red. You could mount it flat or 3d mount it to add some dimension.

This card was inspired by a swap that I received at the Reading Training day a few weeks back. It is such a simple design but so striking and it shows off the new Blossom punch and the new Sweet shop designer paper so beautifully. These papers are just gorgeous, 2 of the designs (one of which is shown here) are embossed and therefore add some lovely texture to your projects. The greeting is from Petite Pairs and stamped in Wisteria Wonder. Oh and don't forget to add a touch of bling with rhinestones!

Here it is at last, the final card from the boxed set. All the colours from the colour pallette of Teatime simply scrappin feature on this one. I do love the medallion on the backing paper I think it may be time for me to invest in the medallion background stamp! The greeting is from Petite pairs therefore you will find the second half of the expression inside the card.
