Snow Flake Triple Time Stamping


The card I have to share with you today, uses a technique called triple time stamping…

I have also entered this card into the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge this week.

I stamped over three layered square pieces of white card at the same time

and then sponged the edges before layering with coloured card.

To finish, I added a lush bow and rhinestones.

Coffee and Cream Christmas


I have entered this card into the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge

and this weeks theme is coffee and cream…

I had bought this die last year and got as far as cutting one out

to see what it would look like.

So this was my starting point and finished by adding a bow and some pearls.

Paper Blocking


I had such fun entering into the 52 (Christmas Card) Throwdown Challenge last week,

I could not resist having another go.

So here is my entry…

Paper Piecing 1

This weeks was a sketch challenge, using patchwork or paper blocking techniques.

Firstly I rotated the layout of the sketch (it didn’t say I couldn’t) and this allowed me to accommodate my Christmas mittens, houses and trees, all that were pieces of scrap from my left over Christmas papers.

To finish off I added a red satin ribbon and tag with a sentiment.
