Thank You with Count on Me & Plentiful Plants

Todays post is a very special one. Recently one of my family members suffered a big heart attack and survived! Thankfully he’s on a good recovery plan with lots of support. They wanted to say thank you to the amazing medical people involved so I created these cards. I love them all.

Some of the dies (thank you) are retired but you could easily create any verse with the latest alphabet dies. To accompany the cards my sister suggested I make some cookies to match. She knows me so well! So the whole family jumped on a video call and watched me make the cookies. It was very fun and felt very comforting to have everyone in the same room … even if only ion video. 

For the cards I embossed the first 2 backgrounds with my new favourite emboss folder called TASTEFUL TEXTILE. The cute kangaroo is from Count on Me. 
I used a cool trick for the thank you - cut multiple of the same die, layer them together slightly off centre to create a shadow effect. 

For the nurses card - I used the new zigzag die from Basic Borders Dies to create a heart beat signal. For the sentiment I combined 2 stamps from Plentiful Plants - can you tell which ones?
The nurses hat is made from a label die out of Garage Gear (retired)

For the last card I mainly used circle died to create rings and cut them to shape the stethoscope - easy - only a touch fiddly to glue down! 

Such a great colour combination! 
Here’s my cookie sesh… 

These took hours! But it was so rewarding and they looked amazing!

Corner Flip Card & Last minute Christmas Cards

Todays card is not a new design - I’ve used it before! This card never fails to impress & it’s so very easy! 
 Make a corner flip card (link to Dawn Olchefske) make sure you have a nice sharp blade in your trimmer - if you need replacements let me know 

The inside also needs some Stampin love 

It’s a HOT combo! 

Did you notice these little tree die cuts? 
I don’t know whichI like best, with or without the pink trees?

I always run out of card! So with some bits n pieces I had on the desk I quickly put these together. The main products used was the Alphabet Dies & scraps of DSP


Check it some of my previous versions:

Delivering Cheer with chalk marker technique

Who knew the chalk marker had so much potential!! I have owned one for a while but I honestly have never really experimented properly. After watching Lyssa (USA demo) showcase a snowman card I feel in love with the chalk marker.  

Let me show you my creations with it.

I must be on a roll I have another video tutorial for you!


Once stamped in Memento Black ink, I had a lot of fun ‘white’ colouring the lady with the presents from Delivering Cheer.

The wreath I created from Whimsical Trees

This little marker is the hero of the day!

I hand dotted the background too … this marker is my new favourite colouring product!

I can’t not make traditional coloured Christmas cards - even if it’s just a couple.

Christmas with Whimsy and Wonder Suite

MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I hope your Christmas plans are coming together and if you have shopping to do that it’s all done by now! Today I have a special set of cards to share with you & a video too! 

I’ve made 12 cards in total combining ALL the paper designs in the pack and ALL the die cuts too! Let’s take a close look and check out this video 



Love how the paper colours offer a different colour palette for Christmas! The paper is so versatile and can be used for all types of occasions don’t you think?? 

The JOLLY & MERRY are made from the alphabet dies and sometimes we just need to let the paper do all the work. I cut out and foam mounted some of the presents on this card just here (below) 

Trees!! What’s Christmas without trees! 

The details in the dies make it so easy to create an interesting look 



With all the leftover strips of paper I made up these tags - so quick and easy and a great way to use those tiny little pieces 

I definitely needed to make more after this lot
