Remember a few posts back I was trying to get the maximum out of my stamps....? well I have found another use but I cannot remember where I picked it up !!!! Apologies to the creative person I've lifted from!! I have made a few Christmas cards for a VERY WORTHY CAUSE organised by my fellow Scrapbook Boutique Teamie Linda.  Linda is organising the Aussie version of

I cannot seem to pop info on here (Blogger grrrrr) PLEASE go have a read and help out if you can!!


I have turned the stamp around and had to stamp a couple of times to get a good coverage (you could use any stamp that is round)  The luxe inks are so luscious and perfect for this card.  I just love the Mama Elephant Christmas stamp too!

I made another one with different colours and another sentiment from the Mama Elephant set.  More to send to Linda!!! Be quick as the cut off is soon!!!


thank you for popping in!

****ETA  apologies for the wonky circles....... I Know I KNOW I should have measured!!! lol

Celebrate your day with Style

Hey Hello there, I have been trying to use ALL my stamps and I am embarrassed to admit........ I have SO many that I haven't even opened **BLUSH** Therese (my Fellow Scrapbook Boutique Teamie) has the BRILLIANT idea of stamping out her sets when she gets them because they can take on a different look. SHE IS SO RIGHT!!! I have played around with a few and even turned them upside down and back to front ( up coming post) and I will have to admit this is a GEM bit of advice to keep!! Some of my friends (shall remain nameless NC DP) are like me, collectors and hoarders!! TAKE THIS ADVICE GIRLS!! Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique for all instructions and products used to recreate this card (I think there might even be a sale on there at the moment )
