10 on the Tenth ~ Cards

It’s been a while since I took part in Shimelle’s monthly link up party. If you are a regular visitor around here then you will have seen most, if not all, of these cards before, in my Saturday posts, but I thought a little round up might be interesting.

Just for fun, when I was choosing the cards to feature, each one had to share an element with the project that went before/after it. I can’t pick a favourite, but the little gingerbread man is the most viewed card in my Split Coast Stampers gallery. Which one is yours?

Stampin’ Up Saturday ~ Monochrome….

….and the art of mass production.


Christmas card making has been in full swing this week. The most time consuming part, for me, is coming up with a design. Once the first one is done, I can usually knock up a set quite quickly, but after about the tenth I get bored with the repetition.

Time to change it up. That’s what I’ve done here. I took the original design, swapped the red ink for blue, inked up the opposite side of the embossing folder and used seam binding instead of tulle. A very different feel, using the same main ingredients.


  • Pool Party cardstock and ink
  • Whisper White cardstock
  • Morning Post alphabet stamps
  • Lacy Brocade embossing folder
  • Postage Stamp punch
  • 1 1/4” square punch
  • seam binding

I’ll be placing an order on Monday (10th) which will probably be my last before Christmas. If you need anything let me know.
