Stamping Overload!!!

I haven't updated my bloggie in a while so I thought that I had better do a couple of cards to give me the incentive to post them up here.

They are both Christmas cards - I really must get myself into gear and get them all made. I have purchased lots of fabby Christmas stamps but can't seem to get myself motivated. The weather has really turned today and has made me feel very wintry so perhaps my creative christmas mojo will return (not that I ever had any in the first place!!!!).

The first card is a Whipper Snapper stamp which I got from The Glitter Pot - their service is fantastic - I ordered Thursday lunch and they were delivered Friday morning!!! I have also used paper from the DCWV Christmas Stack and the Snowflake Cuttlebug Embossing folder - I use this in my Big Shot - much better than Sizzix's Texture Plates!!! Oh and a bit of glue and glitter - an essential on any chrimbo card!!!

The second card is a Penny Black stamp which I love. I went to a Craft Fair this morning in Ringwood and bought several more embossing folders and some more Penny Black stamps. This is also using paper from the DCWV Christmas Stack and I embossed it using the snowflake folder. I then used some rik rak ribbon and some peel off greetings. I did chuck this one together quite quickly and not overly pleased with it - but it will do to put towards the christmas card pile!!!!

I have purchased the Design Master software for my Craft Robo, which if you have been reading the Craft Robo Chat forum on UKS then you will know that there are a few teething problems. I haven't attempted to cut anything yet!!! Look out on my bloggie when I have managed to actually do something using it. I do have a card to make for a 7 year old and I know what I want to do but haven't a clue how to do it on Design Master and I don't want to use the old software now that I have the new one!!!!

I seemed to have spent a fortune on crafty stuff over the last few weeks. I have got a pile of lovely Whipper Snapper and Penny Black stamps waiting to be used which I am definitely going to do this evening whilst watching Top Gear. When do you feel that you have all the crafting stuff that you need? Never I guess!!!!

Anyway now I am beginning to ramble... ... so bye for now!!!!
