Tartan Stampers Christmas 2010 Blog Hop

The Tartan Stampers Team have been making the most of the snowy weather and making some lovely projects featuring a Christmas Theme.

Thank you for joining me from  Kara's blog, you will have seen some lovely projects there.

I have been experimenting with the new Christmas Stamps Delightful Decorations.  The album is a variation on a design by Andrea Walford.

Album in Tin

Tri Shutter Album - closed

The colours I have used are Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.  I also used the new scallop trim corner punch, oval and scalloped oval punches, extra large ornament punch, silver elastic cord and Old Olive satin ribbon.

Pages 1 and 2 of the album
Pages 3 and 4 of the album

Page 5 of album
This would make the perfect gift for a special occasion and could easily be adapted to suit any event i.e. wedding, new baby, first day of school.

My next projects feature the Contempo Christmas stamps.  These cards and gift tags featured in a recent class that I ran and came from an idea I saw on the In Love With Stamping Forum .  Again I have used the same colour combination of Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive but these cards feature the eyelet border punch and again use the old olive satin ribbons.

These gift tags are the perfect way to use up your small bits of card and ribbon.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects.  To hop to the next blog - just click Here to visit Elaine and see her gorgeous Christmas projects.

A Rose is a Rose Class

Mother's Day is on Sunday 14th March this year and to mark this occasion I designed these special cards which we will be making on Saturday 27th February

We will be using A rose is a Rose and Flight of the Butterfly stamps, Tea and Crumpets Designer papers and Whisper White and Mellow Moss cardstock.


This is the first card we will make, a tri-shutter card which looks a lot more difficult than it actually is.  Once you have made your first - there will be no stopping you.

This is the second card, using the pricking templates and more two-step stamping.

Making a Difference with Stampin' Up!

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. In the past, when terrorists attacked the Twin Towers, when a tsunami struck Indonesia, when a hurricane destroyed New Orleans, and when wildfires ravaged Australia, Stampin' Up! demonstrators stepped forward and showed their commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. This time is no different.

From now until 28 February, 2010, you can partner with Stampin' Up! to make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this devastating earthquake.

Stampin' Up! will set aside £1 from the sale of every Greenhouse Gardens stamp set and donate that money to the Red Cross’ International Response Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

If you would like to help in this way, please contact me via e-mail at
