Second set of cards

Here are the second five cards for October's Stamp a Stack. I've gone with a black and white theme this month.  Hope you like them.

I've used various Stampin' Up! stamps Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock and the new DSP Back to Black.



October Stamp a Stack

Here are the first five of the ten stamp a stack cards that we will be making on 7th October.  Still working on the next five. They will be assorted cards (not Christmas cards).  I will post a photo of the other cards after they are made.

Have a great day.

Screen Cards

At this month's Technique Class we are making screen cards.  The two cards above use the new stamp set Flower Patch from Stampin' Up!  I love this set there are so many different ways to use it and it also has a matching set of Framelits.  A tip for using the framelits is to match up the framelit and the stamp and mark them so it is easy to place the framelit in the right spot when you go to cut out. At the class on Tuesday night we will do one of the above and a Christmas style card too (if people want to).

I have made a card with four panels and one with three.  I think I like the four panelled one best, it's more dainty looking.  However it will also require a specially made envelope because of it's size.  Luckily I have the SU Envelope punch board and that wont be a problem. I got a bit carried away with the stamping on the top card and there isn't much space to write on so I put a panel on the back of the card for that.

We have two very special visitors at the moment, our daughter and her daughter.  It's so lovely to spend time with the two of them.   We don't get to see them often enough and we're certainly catching up on lots of hugs and kisses for Grandma and Grandad.                             



Ash has been doing a bit of card making too.  She is very much into Clean and Simple cards.  Here are a few she made.

I might have to CASE the little boat card it is soooo nice.  Simple and classy. Well I think so!!

Just thought I would end with another couple of shots of Elsie, she is just so gorgeous.

Thanks for looking. X
