Just Stampin!

Happy Friday all. It's all go here today, H is after a lift to the golf club but appears to have gone back to bed :-) Ol's keeps bringing me last minute washing to get cleaned before he heads off on his hols tomorrow and is in need of a lift to work at and I'm sitting here smiling.  It's the last day of the summer hols before H starts college on Monday and with Oli away too quiet days with no interuptions are just around the corner lol!.  

Today's card is the last of this months design team projects for Darren at Jones Crafts.  I've really enjoyed working with a different collection, it's challenged the old brain cells and got me thinking outside the box.   I used the Mistletoe Stamp Set by Kaisercarft, and red, green and black ink. The wreath background was stamped onto a separate piece of card cut out and adhered to the card before the fussy cut elements were added.  A great way to add some depth and dimension.  I added a recessed piece of card behind the wreath for the sentiment baubles and last little berry sprig. A really simple card but really effective I thought lol! 

I love the sentiments in this stamp set

  6. Good evening Clare, You probably didn't see my last message on your previous post so apologies for not being around for your last few projects. We had family to stay and I couldn't get near the computer during that time. I'm loving this latest card everything about it is so fresh. Do hope you enjoy the show in Leigh on Sunday and that the weather stays fine. Thanks for sharing this and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Take care.

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
