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

If you have any questions you can find me at angelfishcrafts{at}gmail{dot}com

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

Love that bluesy Chrimble card - very elegant indeed!

Utterly gorgeous Fiona....indeed it's my fave of the two colour ways. Although the original is stunning too.

Gorgeously gentle and yet still wonderfully striking!
