Misti Stamping tool & Silhouette Cameo

Hello Friends,

I've made a card for a friend today using my two favourite pieces of equipment, my Misti and my Silhouette Cameo.

I watched a YouTube video about how to stamp around a circle, so was itching to have a go!


I tried a short simple word (May) to start with and was so pleased with the result, I made it into a card.  The die cuts on the front are all Nestabilities by Spellbinders, the card stock is by Stampin' Up and the base, circle card, is made using my Silhouette Cameo - perfect ;)!

I hope you like my card, thanks for popping by today.

Happy crafting.

Misti, Silhouette Cameo PixScan & Stampin' Up

Hi Friends,

My Stampin' Up upline has organised a group card swap.  The criteria is that we are only allowed to use products that will be in the new 2015-2016 annual Stampin' Up catalogue.  Here is what I've made.....


There is a whole lot of stampin' going on, on these cards and having the Misti certainly made it quicker, even then it seems to have taken all day to make 9 cards, I'm a slow worker ;)!

I also used the new PixScan feature and mat on my Silhouette Cameo to cut around the flowers, it was certainly a lot easier than I first thought it would be.  I'll be using that again for sure!

If you want any detailed information about the cards, please email me.

Happy crafting and thanks for popping by today.

Because You Care & Perpetual Birthday Calendar, Stampin' Up

Hello friends,

Here is a card I made using the Because You Care and Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp sets from Stampin' Up.....


I used my MISTI to do the stamping, making it easy!

The colours I chose were Elegant Egg Plant, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White.

The sketch came from my Stampin' Up upline's downlines blog!

Happy crafting.

My MISTI and me!

Hello Friends,

I couldn't resist getting a MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented)!   I've had it for almost a fortnight and "imjustlovinit"!  If you'd like one, then here is the link ;)!

It really is the most incredible stamping tool invented, for sure!



There are many videos on YouTube, if you want to see one in action, but in the mean time here is a simple card I made using mine.....


Happy crafting and thanks for popping by today.

Tent fold birthday card - Blooming with Kindness, Stampin' Up

Hello Friends

I'm back with another tent fold card today....


It's a little bit different form yesterday's version, this time the front panel is larger.  I'm not sure which I like best, this one or the one I shared with you yesterday!

I used the Blooming with Kindness stamp set again from Stampin' Up, I wish that set wasn't retiring!  I also used Stampin' Up card stock, ink and seam binding ribbon.  The paper is another Maja design paper.

Hope you like my card today.

Happy crafting.

Blooming with Kindness - Tent fold wedding card

Hello Friends,

I saw a tent fold card, with a bit of a difference the other day and decided to have a go at making one.


I used Maja Design paper, Stampin' Up card stock and ink, the stamped sentiment is a very old one from Hero Arts and the "congratulations" was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

I'm really pleased with how the card turned out.

I've a birthday card version to share with you tomorrow ;)!

Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by to look today.

Silhouette Cameo lessons UK - Golden Wedding Card

Hello Friends,

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I'm trying to catch you all up with some of the cards I made for friends and family whilst I was busy developing my new Silhouette lesson for Version 3 of the Silhouette Studio Software.

Today I'm sharing a card with you that I made for one of my ladies who was looking for inspiration. She was going to a Golden wedding celebration and needed a card idea.


Although I didn't actually use my Silhouette Cameo to make this card, I did use the software to design it!  Any carpenter will tell you to "measure twice and cut once", which is what I'm able to do by designing my cards using the Silhouette Software, even if I'm actually going to use some of the old dies I bought before I invested in my Cameo!

I hope my card inspires you today.

Happy Silhouette crafting.
