Ladies craft morning

This morning we made a tissue holder - just to have a change from cardmaking (although we did have time to make a card aswell). The ladies enjoyed this and all made a great finished product. We stamped the background main body of the holder using 2 stamps and 2 different colours of ink. We used a lovely contrasting patterned paper for the closure and made a medallion as a feature on the front. All products used were stamping up.

The card we made was using 7 gypsies patterned paper, ribbon and card stock from my stash. The butterfly medalion was made with SU stamps and punches.


For a special little girl who was 2 on 5th May. Her Mum and Dad took her to Knowsley safari park for the day so the animal card was just the ticket! Stamped background using animal stamps from Stamping UP and the giraffe was made using various shaped punches from S U.


Unfortunately, recently, a friend of mine's Mum passed away. She was in hospital for a short time and in the end her passing was peaceful. I felt I wanted to send a nice card to my friend so here it is.
