My gorgeous little Grandson turned 5 on Monday and his favourite thing in the world at the moment is Tigers. So Granny ... me ... set about trying to make him a birthday card. The first card was a disaster so I decided to have another go and this version turned out way better and less scary.  I took some inspiration that I found from a print on the net and this is how Harvey's Tiger card turned out.

It's basically a lot of paper piecing and I have to say I had fun making it. Colours used are Stampin' Up! Island Indigo, Basic Black, Whisper White, Smokey Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. The number 5 is from an old set of Cuttlebug dies and cut in Gold Glimmer Paper from Stampin' Up! and I have used the Large Oval punch to create his eyes and mouth. There is not one stamp on this card!

Enjoy, just thought I would share because I just loved how it turned out :) .

Happy Stamping

I have had my Stampin' Up! Watercolour Wishes Card Kit sitting on my desk for quite awhile waiting patiently for me to get my act together and create with. Well last night I finally did just that and here are the results.

The card kit comes complete with everything you need to make 20 cards. This is just a selection of what I created, the rest have already been given to customers who have placed an order with me during the last year. You can find the complete kit on page 8 of the current catalogue and this year's kit on Page 6. You will find a link to the catalogue to the right of this post.

Card kits are a fabulous idea as they provide you with ink pads, embellishments, card bases, envelopes, stamps and even a coordinating block for the stamps. All you need to complete your creations is adhesive. These kits are fabulous to give as a gift to a beginner stamper or perfect to take on holidays with you should you feel the need to create whilst sitting on the balcony relaxing with a Pina Colada or two :) .

Please email me if you would like to order one of the Stampin' Up! Card kits.

Cheers and Happy Stamping
