Car punchart

My niece recently passed her driving test with only 1 minor, great pass Georgie, thought I'd share the card I made for her with you all.  I got my inspiration for the card from Stamp with Anne

I made the blue car 1st then changed my mind and made the car with the added initials number plate.
Stampinup punches
Wide, large, and and small oval punches
modern label tag punch
1/2" and smaller circle punches (not SU)

For the sentiment
word window
Modern label tag punch 
papermania clear stamp
SU black  ink

I also used the Tailgating SU wheel and coloured in with water colour pencils.

S on S Thanks

 This week I have 2 sheets for you in readiness for all those thankyou cards that you'll be wanting!   The first I've designed for the children to use/ help you with and the second is showing a tired out dog as I'm sure I'll feel similar after Christmas! lol   Hope they come in useful to you.

Santas gift

This week I've designed a slightly different topper for you so that it's quick to make, with easy cutting and only one layer! Ideal for last minute cards.  As you can see there are 3 different sizes of topper and just a border/narrow backing paper.

S on S Gradient flower

 This should be sheets on Sunday! lol  I'm so sorry this is late, but the time is just flying by now and I'm still not ready for Christmas! lol  After printing this weeks sheet, I think it may be a bit dark, but I'm going to make it up into cards tomorrow to see how it looks, hope you can find it useful.  I'll do my best to add some of the cards I've made from previous sheets this week so that you can see them.

Christmas midweek freebie

 This weeks sheet is of snow scenes.  For the holly framed photo I've add another frame to add layered up, cut out the centre but save the hat in the middle for the snowman scene!  Again I've added the hat and the banner for you to layer up. I've left a slight edge on the banner purely for you to see where to cut.  The border I've left as plain a plain sentiment border which you either cut following the line of the text or cut straight.  Hope the sheet is useful for you all.

S on S Mod mix

Morning everyone, thought I'd make something a little different for this Saturdays offering, as usual I've designed it to be printed on A4 landscape.  As you can see from my cards that I've made using this sheet my printer isn't working properly and won't print anything other than green and yellow tones! lol   I must say I like the colours my printer has used and if any of you would like me to make the sheet with these colours just let me know and I'll see what I can do! lol 

Recipe for the cards

for the flower one I cut out the peices from the sheet and added a SU punches 3 flower for the centre with a brad from my stash.  I used gold peeloffs and coloured the flowers with SU Gable green and the leaves with Sage shadow. 
For the butterfly card I cut out the peices as you can see and layered them onto a papermania scallop edge card. nd added some star dust stickles in the centre of the butterfly.  I also drew in the butterfly antennae I think using the gable green.
Now you know how bad my printer is as these colours match the colours on the sheet that it printed out! lol

Christmas midweek freebie

My apologies for posting this so late today, but I was actually able to get out and catch up with shopping etc.  I've been iced in for the last few days. lol  We didn't have a huge amount of snow compared with other areas in the country, but each layer iced solid and the road and paths/pavement became lethal!  Hopefully the weather is better where you are and warmer!  Anyway enough rambling, for this week I've done a topper sheet for you with a decoupaged bauble and plain topper using the image of a wonderful snowman called George by Costellajen.  Hope these come in handy.

S on S Teenage fairy

I realised this week that I've been  neglectful in making sheets for teenage girls.  I hope this weeks offering will go towards correct that! I started making a card using this sheet and will addt it tomorrow when its finished. In the meantime so that I don't keep you waiting here's the sheet.  As usual it's designed to be printed landscape A4

Here's the card I made.  I used bronze coloured peeloffs for the corners and the edge of the angel hair oval.  The backing sheet was cut using a magnet punch that you can make various shapes with. I added stardust stickles to the punched out stars, corners and the flowers in the fairys hair.  I also coloured parts of the corner peeloffs to match the blue angel hair.

Animal Christmas

Here's the 2nd weeks , midweek christmas freebie.  I've designed the labrador topper as a pyramid and the rabbit can either be 4 different toppers or your can layer them up to make a fancy border/frame round the picture. 

Monday, 22 November 2010


Here are a couple of cards I've made using this weeks S ~on ~S.   The lanscape card, I used some of the backing sheet behind the frame and then put the centre piece on SU dimensionals to make it pop a bit an I also added a couple of the oars that were on the sheet.  For the portrait card, I cut the pattern from the smaller background piece that was with the toppers and decoupaged the boat onto the plain topper.  I'd made the card I think the border would look nice if I'd edged the border with some black ink.  Maybe next time! lol

S on S Boat ashore

As I'm posting Christmas sheets during the week, I'll keep the Saturday sheets for other occasions.  Today I've designed a sheet with our older male family members in mind. The image I've used I found on the www and umable to credit to the designer.  The boat layer is sized to fit the complete topper not the one with the added frame.  Hope that makes sense!

S on S Pandas relaxing

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  I'm pleased to say it's dry here for a change,  it's been raining all week! lol    Sadly at this time of year a lot of people get poorly so today I've designed a get well card that will work for both men and women.  As usual I've designed it to be printed landscape on A4 paper.  Unfortunately I do not know the photographer so cannot give them credit. 

As Christmas is only a short time away, I'll try and post a christmas sheet as well during the week in the run up to Christmas.  Let me know if you have any favourite messages you'd like me to put on  sentiment tags, or if you'd like the message in another language.
