Simple “Traveler” card


I have a lovely, simple to make, card for you today, using the Traveler stamp set. I know there are a lot craftsrs out there that cringe at the thought of making a male  card….me….i love them!!! And today’s card is sooooo simple to make. I used the reverse die cutting technique for this project, with a little mat and layering of dsp and a stamped image which has been die cut to the shape i wanted and voila one stylish card. To make this shape card you need to make a gate fold cards base, open the card up and lie your die in the centre with the cutting side facing upwards,  close the card and run  through machine  , if you mat and layer your card base first, it will  be much easier to do than  try and
do it afterwards.

Hope you have enjoyed today’s project,  don’t forget to hop over to my shop ro stock up on supplies.



Festival of tree’s gift tag’s

Now I know some of you don’t like to think of Christmas yet…..but us crafters have to think of it months in advance. Now how many of you have made all your Christmas cards?…..I have, thank goodness, now all I have to do is make Christmas gifts for the kiddies to give to their teachers.

I know most of my friends think I am a hoarder of scraps….and yes I have to admit it……but I don’t like to throw bits out, you never know when you might need a flower punched out in that colour or any other little embellishment that you can make. So every now and then I get the box out and make toppers or things like that, so as we are getting closer to Christmas I thought I would make some gift tags….now I love presents with pretty bow’s and gift tags, so I really enjoyed this task.

“Trinklet box”

This is such a cute little box to make and there are quite a few tutorials out there in the blogging world, of all shapes and sizes, but this one is just a lovely size. You can a little bit of jewelry or some luxuary chocolates in the little drawers, this will make an ideal gift that anyone would love to receive.

The dsp on this box is not Stampin up, but I used it as I love the colours. The stamp set is Trust God, the messages on these stamps are so lovely and so is the font.

These are a little gift from me to a couple of people from my relaxation class, one is for the nurse who is running it and beleive me she as helped me a lot over the past 6 weeks and one is for a lovely lady, who has the same condition as me and is feeling a little lost at the moment as her only son has just gone off to university. So a little thank you/thinking of you gift was in order here.

A Special card for a Special friends Mum

The other day I sent an old friend a txt, I needed to pick her brains on technology (iPad/tablet) My grandson asked me if he could have one of these for Christmas and really don’t know much about these sort of things, but in our short conversation it came apparent that she is under a lot of stress at the moment and she was saying that her “Mum” who she loves dearly is going to be 70 next week, so I offered to make for her a special card. I love to make flowers so for this particular card I made a few, all the flowers I made are using several Stampin up flower punches, the only other things that is Stampin up is the die and stamp I used for the sentiment.

I am hoping my friend will love this and that her mum will love receiving this, I was pleased that I could help my friend as I feel so guilty that I haven’t seen her for a few months.

So Helen I hope you like, I look forward to catching up with you very soon. Tracy

Festival of tree’s, Pyramid card


It has been such a busy week,  my darling hubby has redesigned my craft area, it’s a very small area, but it’s all mine and I love it.

As i haven’t posted anything for a week i thought I would share with you a card that i made last week. I call this card my pyramid card, i have made these in several different sizes,  this one uses 5in squares.
One of my favourite stamp sets at the moment is the Festival of tree’s,  with the punch, what i love about it is, i can punch out inked images or just plain cardstock and by re inserting the tree into the punch you can make smaller tree’s,  just love it. I decorated the tree’s with the tiny gems, i then coloured them with the new blendabilities.
So give it a go, would love to see your creations.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy.
