International commission....

Here are some cards I've designed for a UK client who's after
Christmas cards to send out from her business.... ok.... so it's my
mum!! ha ha ha!

I think this means I am offficially global? HA HA HA!

I've concentrated on trying to create a variety of stylish cards yet
(due to high numbers required), simple designs that can be produced
efficiently. I'll let you know which one (if any!) my 'client' chooses!


Land ahoy...

I think my red and green phase (christmas christmas christmas) may be
a little tired, so I'm going to sea! Navy is the new black... today!

Using Kaszazz Sea Theme stamps, I've embossed dark blue onto white
with great naval success!

I also played with (another!) new toy, the Crop-a-Dile... how did I
cope before this tool moved in to live with me?


my two new friends....

I am in love with the pirate... and romantically hope he is married to the
ballerina :o)

I used watercolours to colour these cuties and punches (including my
new fave toy, the round tab punch) to embellish.


Tree Friends...

I found some ink pens at a REAL steal recently - I'd never used them
before; I'd merely marvelled at other people's results!

So here's my first attempt at 'colouring in' my stamps.... and I'M
STOKED! I was worried that the first bits would dry before I'd finished colouring the last bits, but NO! Very happy!

Just love the extra dimension the colour gives, particularly to the
leaves in the trees.



These 'chicks' are new to the Kaszaaz range and I just love them!
Not usually my cup of tea really but there's just something about
these sassy girls and their strut that makes them seem so noughties!
Very Sex In The City!

These cards include stamping, embossing techniques, watercolours and eyelet setting.


kids kids kids...

I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently but I'm been
busy 'behind the scenes'!

Here's another of my 'kids cards' purges! I sent a couple away and
missed them so much I had to make more! Here are the new variations...

Big crafty love

Always thinking of you...

Sadly (for me anyway) I feel writing cards to friends for no good
reason other than to say hello, is a dying art....

It's not stopping me making note sets though!

I've used a two-step stamp on this card - Baby Dragonfly Large
Kaszazz 6345

Long live postmen!

Little friends...

ooooh... I am in love with this note set.
Based on a Kaszazz workshop, I've used Hero stamps for the wee images
and plain Basill card for the box (scrapbooking papers could be used
for box lid).
I think it is just divine!

Just a little note...

My variation on a note set I'd seen made by a few other people.

Using a roller stamp, it becomes so easy to create coordinated note cards, envelopes and wallet and in a real jiffy too.

Only my first attempt - I'll make sure the wallet is truly square next time!

What a wonderful day....

I had the best day yesterday...

Apart from talking too much (a vice I accept grudgingly), I watched

I watched people do things they'd not done before...

I watched people with friends...

I watched people chatting...

... people having a giggle....

Mostly I think I watched people relax... and that it is very cool

I heard kids enjoying the freedom of a house where adults were

I watched dressup princesses flitting around as if powered by fairy

I heard, saw and shared laughter...

I belonged.

Thanks sunny day, you have been kind :o)


... and here is what was created on my sunny funny day!

Designs attributed to and adapted from Kaszazz projects.

Football crazy, Football mad...

I love this card - with two daughters, I rarely get the chance to 'go
I borrowed this stamp from a wonderful new friend who I feel I have
known & laughed with forever xxxx

Original design - kma

Tying my laces...

These Kaszazz projects are stunning - photos cannot do them justice.

Using a Quick Kit, I created a unique way to dust off some boxed wedding photos and display them proudly.

Then , attending a workshop, I produced a hanging homage to my stunning kids... swoon...

Designs created and available through Kaszazz.

Mail for the males...

A simple original collection made up from off-cuts from other
projects, I often find myself hunting for nice cards for the men in
our lives.

My hubbie, hereinafter known as Mr Wunchub, likes the 'industrialism'
of the metal embellishments (in this collection, Kaszzaz Aged Copper
split pins).

Variety is the spice of life...

More off cuts are used to make this original cheery, yellow card.
I also added some sparkle to the green banner strip by applying
Perfect Medium with my Rollergraph and scattering some glitter before

The latter two designs are attributed to or adapted from Kaszazz projects.

I LOVE these little stamps...

Using off cuts of Basill Basics card and nitbits of ribbon, see these
lovely Hero Art Owl / bird stamps sit happily on their perches...

Original designs - kma
