Kaszazz Christmas owl card

I'm involved in a Global Card swap group and we had to make a Christmas card to send to our partner. Lucky it was only one card! I have got so much use out of one particular Christmas Stamp from Kaszazz and that is the Christmas Hat. It is sensational, because you can turn any ordinary stamp into a Christmas one! Great value for money. I think I'll make up some more examples so you can see the versatility of it. All stamps used were Kaszazz. I stamped the poinsettia flower twice on scrapbook paper of corresponding colours. This just gave them a little bit more texture. It's quite fun stamping onto scrapbook paper. I then used coloured pencils to bring some depth into the stamps. I layered the petals on top. In the centre, I used gold smooch to bring some sparkle. Oliver owl is coloured in using a combo of Tria markers and coloured pencils. He also has some smooch highlights. The base of the card is white, with red essentials  card stock (I think!) . I used the cuttlebug to make a leafy design on the background, and I used nestabilities dies to cut out the background as well as the inside of the card. For the white parts on the hat, I used glossy accents and sprinkled with fairy dust. 
This was such fun to make, but I would only make a few I think! I'm going to see if I can turn some other stamps into Christmas ones, using the Santa hat!
Bye for now.

Floral 100th Birthday card

Recently I was commissioned to make this card for a 100th Birthday. What an honour! I was able to also see pictures when the lovely lady received her card, she looked so lovely surrounded by a large family. I had to make it a big card so all could easily write in it- so it's A4 size. I confess I did buy one packet of small flowers, but I made the rest. It was so much fun creating these flowers. If you're wanting to know how to do that, head over to and click on information sheets (I think), you will be able to see how to do some really great flowers. I know that when you receive a card it can bring you such pleasure, but I've got to say, it gives me even more pleasure to make them.
I hope you have a fantastic day
Take care
