Toile Christmas


Hello and welcome. Today I have a card for you using the Toile Christmas stamp set. I love this cardinal. I think he is so regal. 



I have added something different to the background of this card. The Basic Pattern Decorative Masks are so great to add extra detail and interest. Here I have sponged the tree pattern from the masks. I think it gives a lovely subtle background.

If you have never used the  masks or want to learn the many different ways you can use them, why not sign up to my newest  online class - All About Masks. I will teach you 5 different ways to use masks and there is over $60 of product included. Click on the image below for more information.

Have a great day.
Cheers,

Toile Christmas


Hello and welcome. I love a classic Christmas. And nothing says Christmas more to me than red and green. The Toile Tidings Suite definitely fits this criteria. With its gorgeous vintage look papers and the two great stamp sets, you really can't get more traditional.



Apparently red cardinals are a symbol of faith and warmth with their bright red color in the dreary days of winter, during which time Christmas comes. Their red color is also a symbol or reminder of blood Jesus Christ shed for us on the cross. I guess that is why they are associated with Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere. Even though we don't have them in Australia and winter is not at our Christmas time, they are still a pretty bird and I love that they are red, so in my eyes they still fit in with the traditional Christmas.

If you too love a traditional Christmas, then make sure you check out the Toil Tidings Online Class I am offering at the moment. You get eight great project kits with full colour instructions, plus the stamp set. The class content is delivered to your door so you can do it no matter where you are in Australia.

Tidings All Around


Hello and welcome. As I mentioned yesterday, I love wreaths. And the Tidings All Around has a ready made wreath in it, so I was so excited when I saw this set in the Holiday Catalogue. But besides the wreath stamp, there is another stamp with which you can create a wreath with. I just couldn't resist.


I made this card a square one so the wreath would take up all the card front. This 4"x 4" size card is perfect for gift cards. And this wreath design was so quick and easy to do. I just used the die cut circle to draw a circle in pencil onto the card front. Then literally stamped around in a circle. The fern stamp is a distinktive stamp, so parts of it stamp full strength and other parts stamp second generational, which is with less ink. The wreath looks like I have stamped the smaller leaves that are just poking out seperately. But I haven't. It is just the one stamp Very clever.

Tip of the Week



I love using our Designer Series Paper but sometimes the designs get lost. 

An easy fix is to add a layer of vellum to soften the background.

Purchase your vellum and all your other crafting supplies in my online store.

Tidings All Around


Hello and welcome. If you are a long time follower of mine, you will know how much I love wreaths. Well wasn't I excited when I saw the Tidings All Around stamp set in the holiday catalogue. Here is a simple card I have made using it.



This card is actually cased from the front cover of the holiday catalogue. I love that our catalogues are so much  more than just a listing of products you can buy. They are a fantastic source of inspiration. I use them often to come up with ideas when my mojo takes a holiday.

The Tidings All Around stamp set is part of the larger Toile Tidings Product Suite. I love that this suite is classically red and green which suits the vintage look of the papers.


I actually have an Online Class using this suite on offer at the moment. Why not check out this class here.
