Way Back When

Nice to see you, with a blast from the past

Today is a sample from so far back in my Stampin Up life, I don't think I was even a demonstrator. But as you know I don't have the use of either of my hands at the moment (life is so sad without crafting) and I still have over another 3 weeks possibly 5 weeks before I have the one cast off and it's my predominant hand.  Trouble is people still have birthday's so all my old cards are coming into their own again.

The materials used are:
Inks: Real Red
Stamps: Elementary Elegance SAB (11-12)
Embossing Folders: Perfect Polka Dots
Embosslits: Beautiful Wings
Bigz: Top Note
Accessories: Basic Rhinestones, Dazzling Diamonds
All now sadly retired except for the ink and accessories.  All other materials used were not SU.

Will be back again soon with more cards

Go Girl Boxer

Welcome and hello, thanks for stopping by

Today is the card I supervised only for, my Granddaughter did all the cutting, punching, colouring  and die cutting, then my husband who hates card making put it together for me so it was a real time effort. A big thanks to both of them goes out from me.

It was Leah's birthday yesterday and she was so chuffed when she opened her card, as she had asked for a boxing theme and when I had my fall didn't think she'd get one. So, unlike Leah we all got a big kiss, even her sister.

The materials used are:
Ink: Daffodil Delight
Card stock: Whisper White (thick), Real Red, Red Glimmer
Embossing folders: Perfect Polka Dots (retired)
Punches: Circle 13/8, Itty Bitty Accents, Scallop Circle 13/4
Framelits: Circles (5th from centre)
Thinlits: numbers & greetings (NSU)
DSP: Brights Paper Stack (retired)
Accessories: Red Gem (NSU), Image from

Will be back again soon with more cards
