Pink Cat Studio Minis

We have just collected our shipment of the new Pink Cat Studio mini stamps this morning and are bowled over by how cute they are.

There are 3 in the collection and each mini set comes with 3 stamps - the main image, a sentiment and an accessory.

Xmas Sweeties

Here's another Christmas card from me using the super cute Anya from the 'Xmas Sweeties' set which is back in stock now.

  • Stamps: Anya from 'Xmas sweeties' set, snowflakes used on background paper and sentiment circle from a Papermania stamp duo set.
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Paper: tiny bit MME - just the stripe piece used for the big snowflake and the punched out border behind her, red & brown cardstock plus some white glitter paper
  • Tools: MS doily lace trim deep edger punch, large snowflake and medium snowflake punches, couple of circle punches and a good old office hole punch for the fake brads
  • Others: woodware 'white fluffy stuff', glamour dust, white gel pen for faux stitching

    Thanks for stopping by.

    We have just finished uploading the adorable Paws-fur-a-Moment goodies from Buzzcraft, featuring Mollie and Max.
    I am already in love with this cute pair and find Max to be perfect for those tricky male cards.

    Bernadette ' warm wishes'

    Here's another cutie from Kraftin Kimmie's stamps. This one is Bernadette (comes with a cute sentiment 'you're snow sweet' but I've not used it here as the background was busy enough). Can't tell from photo but the bunny is on 3D foam so pops off the card more than it looks. More than half way through November now so am trying to ratchet up the christmas card output - hope you've all made a start on yours!

    Thanks for looking.


  • Stamps: 'Bernadette' Kraftin Kimmie
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Paper:BG 'Eskimo kisses'
  • Tools: Cuttlebug die for the corner flourishes, 'labels 3' nesties dies, MS snowflake punches
  • Others: brads, stickles

    Here's another Kraftin Kimmie stamp, coloured with Copics (which are now available in the shop - yay!)
    This is Holly and she comes with the holly leaves too which I have stamped in a circle around her (I lightly drew cirle around her in pencil to help me position where to stamp the holly then I just cut freehand all the way around leaving thin white border). I love the sweep in her dress & hair (not to mention her itty bitty waist - I can but dream!)

  • Stamps: 'Holly' - Kraftin Kimmie here
  • Colouring: Copics with Sakura stardust pen waterbrushed over dress for sparkle.
  • Paper: DCWV christmas multistack
  • Tools: MS loopy around the page punch, EK flourish punch
  • Others: White bellas baubles

  • Thanks for looking, have a good day.

    November Kimmies

    Today is release day for the new Kraftin' Kimmie's so at last i can show you how gorgeous this batch is. Check them out over on the website here

    Fran and Marlene have been busy creating with the new stamps and here are the cards they have made using 'Antoinette'

    It is so nice to compare the different colour schemes using the same stamps, especially the way they have used the snowflake accessory card.

    Don't forget that you can still take advantage of our TRICK or TREAT codes until midnight on Monday too.

    Hope you love these stamps as much as we do,
