Three cards using the Roald Dahl Collection.

Hi Everyone,
Today I have three cards to share with you. For all three of these cards I have used the wonderful collection by Roald Dahl which features four stories; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Enormous Crocodile.

For this one I have used a 5 by 5 inches white card base. The bubbles patterned paper from the collection as well as the image and post card.
The Happy and Birthday are stamps from Clearly Besotted. 

 The Ribbon on this card is also part of the collection and comes with three other trims that match the collection. The Hello is a die from Clearly Besotted.

I used to love  reading Roald Dahl as a child and my children enjoy them now too.
I had so much fun making these cards and brought back great memories.
I would love to know if you read these as a child and which was your favorite?

A few cards using the Fun Fair and London Collection

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a few cards to share with you.
For the first two I have used the Fun Fair  paper Collection which shows all the fun of the fair in bright colours and charming characters.
I used a plain white card for the base. I then used the beautiful papers from the collection and cut two strips and used them as boards down the sides. The image is from the decoupage set which give great dimension to the card as you layer up the pieces.
The sentiments are from a Birthday stamp set by Clearly Besotted.

  For this one I made it a little more simple and not so much dimension. The bow was made using a bow die by Tim Holtz, the sentiment is from another stamp set by Clearly Besotted and the wooden key was gifted to me from a sweet friend.
 For my last card today I have made a fold up card using the papers from the London collection which is super cute. On this occasion I have used it to make a Birthday card.
I cut out some triangles from the papers and layered them on to some red card stock to make a banner. The Birthday Wishes is out of some thickers from my stash .
I had lots of fun making these cards and they was really quick and easy to put together.
I hope you all have a great weekend.

Third set of Christmas cards.......

I am still using the same paper pad for these cards (the 12 days of Christmas by my minds eye) and hope to make a few more out of it.

For the green poker dot on the top and bottom I used some washi tape,the HOHOHO is a wooden piece that I coloured black and for the Christmas ornaments they are 3D sticker by (Anita's).

For this card I used elements from cards last year I was given and recycled. I don't throw anything away if I know I can reuse them,LOL
Again I used the washi tape on the edges, a doily behind the image which was recycled from a card and little rhinestones in different areas.
I was also gifted some sweet holly/berry sequins by my sweet friend Su. That I have used on the cards too. 
I hope you are all having a awesome week guys and getting ready for Christmas.
Hope to share some more cards soon.

Second set of Christmas cards!

These are my second lot of Christmas cards. My aim this year is to use up most of my stash I already have to make room for news things next year.

For both of these cards I have used a plain white card base and the pattered papers are (12 days of Christmas by My minds eye). The embellishments are all stickers I have had for a while.

These cards are quite simple but still really cute and a great way to use up those odd bits you may have laying around.

I would love to hear your ideas on how you use up your stash. Have a awesome day and have fun creating.
