Personalised Christmas Cards 2016

Back in my craft room after five months away


Hi everyone, due to being overtaken by family problems at the beginning of the year this is the first time I have blogged since Christmas.  Everything is sorted now and I have managed a few days playing in my craft room, although I didn't feel confident about producing anything worthwhile.


Papermilldirect now make card blanks and I used a blue and a white card from a selection they sent me to make a couple of quick cards using two stamped and watercoloured images.  White, cream and ivory card blanks are available in five sizes over in the shop.



To be in with a chance to win 50 cards in your chosen size and colour visit papermilldirect here for further details.


Back in May I did a few pages in my Papermilldirect 2017 calendar as May had arrived and the page was blank.  Out came the inks, stamps and stencils and I really enjoyed playing around with various themes, Spring colours for May, the Queen's official birthday for June, beach holidays and sunshine for June and a balloon themed page for August (Balloon Festival in Bristol).  The January to April pages can be found HERE in  my post from last year.






My aim over the next six months is to use stamps and dies I have not used, or have been hidden for years, and use the Gelli plate I bought a couple of years ago and have not used.

Looking forward to more card making and getting inky again, next week I hope to do some Gelli plate printing and finish the calendar.  

Back soon with some more makes.
