No Christmas Today!!!

Moving house is on the cards today and I have used some new stamps from Papermania to make these two cards.
For the top card I have created a background onto Bazzill cardstock using Versamark as a watermark ink.
The Sizzix circle has been masked and chalked to give the illusion of a floor and papered wall and then the images were stamped in Olive Green StazOn. The front part of the chair and the lampshade have been stamped again and cut out then attached with foam pads.
Finished it off with a touch of gold Stickles and some ribbon.
The second card has been masked to create a carpet with chalk and then overstamped with one of the small floral stamps in the set and Timber Brown StazOn.
I think the paper is S.E.I but not sure as I just grabbed it and used it. That was brushed over with a little brown chalk.
Oval is Sizzix and the sentiment is on the stamp set.
There are two more cards which I will post tomorrow and one of them....much to my shame and embarrassment is!!!
The posh pan has been out again tonight. I cooked sausages in it and wow were they gorgeous or what? I've never been a fan of sausages with pink stripes in them where they won't lie properly under the grill. These were beautifully and evenly brown. So that is dead impressed number 2.
Everyone must be getting into Christmas mode now as it's been very busy at the shop again today. We have nearly sold out of the Forever Friends Christmas decoupage packs and the last Papermania tree stamp went this morning..........shame........I had my eye on that!!!
Well that's me done for tonight. I was a bit naughty and didn't have my early night last night. I went to bed at 3am and was up again at 5.30am so I am feeling just a tad weary now. Going to make myself a cuppa and read a couple of pages of my book before I turn!!!
Thanks for dropping by


  1. Ouuuu, this is with the new Papermania papers and stamps! You have done the cards really great. I also ordered the stamps and papers from the Chatsworth collection and can't wait to try it. I think the effect with Distress inks and embossing (watermark) will be really great. The technique is on my blog if it is interesting to you (2nd movie).

  2. These are lovely Sheila. I love the way you done the masking, and those stamps are rather scrummy ! Sue x


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
