Project Tuesday - Gift Card Holder

This has to be one of the easiest gift cards to make. I had a lot of fun making this.

Project Tuesday has yet another fab challenge for us this week and this is really quick to make. I have used a double-sided scrapbook paper by Senic Route which I picked up at Brighton the other week and this lovely chocolate Bazzill card matched it perfectly. I have used one of favorite stamps from Elzybells and coloured it with cosmic shimmers. Do pop over and see the DT's makes they really are fab and they are looking for some lucky person to join their team.
I do hope you haven't got as wet as I did taking the girls to school today.
Have a great Wednesday

'Gone Fishing Again'

My second card using this fab stamp set is only small but gives a surprise element when opened..........

This is so easy to make and I will let you know when the instructions are posted. I have used a strip of acetate that is folded on both ends, one behind the paper and one stuck to the fishermans back to make him spring out. I have left the inside of the card quite plain so I can decorate it when I decide who to send it too.
Again everything used to make this card can be bought from One Stop Card Crafts.

Tomorrow I will be showing you my Project Tuesday make, this week its a gift card.
Have a good evening

'Top Bloke' Card

This month I have been using a fab stamp set by Clare Curd called For Him. I have used the fisherman stamp but included is also the image of a golfer and a D.I.Y man.
These are un-mounted stamps and
One Stop Card Crafts have a range of these stamp sets on sale in their shop. All the items used to make this card are also on sale in the shop.
Tomorrow I will be posting my second card I have made using these stamps.
Have a good Monday, and hope the weather isn't quite as wet where you are as it is here today (and have kids home on an inset day)

OSCC Challenge 68

This week we have a great challenge for you all. It has been set by Suzi and its to create a Wall Hanging. I have made mine from a canvas and added a scrapbook page to it.

The canvas is a white 8"x8" that can be bought from any art shop and also in craft and some of the £1 shops. I then just planned and made a scrapbook page as normal and stuck it directly to the canvas. These make fab presents and work out really cheap. The DT have all come up with different wall hangings which are all absolutely fab and should give you plenty of inspiration. All the details, last weeks winner and details of this weeks prize are all over on at

One Stop Craft Challenge Blog

Have a great Sunday Evening
