Ssshhhh - I've got a secret!

Hello Everyone

Well if you are reading this on Saturday 3rd November, I will have left my lovely DH at home and gone off to European Stampin' Up! Convention in Mainz, Germany.

I will be posting some pictures when I get home. I am a proud Stampin' Up! Mummy as, for the first time, I am taking all 5 of my team with me. How exciting.

Now here is a secret I have been keeping.....I have been asked to present at convention for a second year! I am SO honoured to be asked although still nervous. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Anyway, enough of the chat and on with the projects...!

Clockworks was a stamp set that was high on my wish list when I saw the new Stampin' Up! catalogue. I could see at once it would make some great man cards - always tricky for me.

Here I used Old Olive, Early Espresso and Tangerine Tango ink and did some random stamping. I also stamped on the cotton ribbon to create a central border. The Designer Paper is from the Orchard Harvest set, which is in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

The watch face fits perfectly with the 1 3/4" circle punch, so popping up the face is easy.

Now just to show that this stamp set works for us girls too - here is a feminie version of the card. The paper this time comes from the Patio Party and the ink colours I have used are Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Basic Grey.

The greeting is from Curly Cute and don't you just love the new Vintage Faceted Designer Button on this one?

I hope you liked today's projects. I will be back from Mainz next week, with news and photos from Convention. See you then!

Love Elizabeth X

  1. I love these cards, especially the first one. I think there are some fab stamp sets for masculine cards in this catty and can't wait to order some and never be nervous of making a male card again!


Thanks SO much for your message. I love to hear from you. X
