New Blog!!

Hello everyone!
I have been thinking for a while about the first blog I set up way back when I started on my cardmaking journey. It was meant to be my brand name for promoting me and my cards, but since I started Creatin' and Stampin' for myself as an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I have very much neglected my old blog.

So I would like to invite you to join me back at Lizy's House of Cards where I will be posting all my projects from now on. That way I can put all my efforts in one place and take back my brand name! I have also renovated my blog to give it a fresh new look, using Stampin' Up!'s fabulous MDS program, so do let me know what you think!

I have transferred all my blog posts from this blog to my 'new' one so don't worry, all the inspiration will still be available for you to see! :)

I can't wait to see you there!

First Easter cards!

Good morning my lovely followers!
I am sorry for having been AWOL for a few days...apart from it being half term, towards the end of the week I got some sort of a virus and it knocked me sideways a bit and apart from the things I have to do, I haven't felt much like doing anything! I am feeling a whole lot more like myself now though, so I have a lovely set of Easter cards to show you...

I have used one of the lovely stamp sets from the Spring/Summer catalogue, Blessed Easter, combined with the Trefoil Cross from the annual catalogue.

The Blessed Easter stamp actually comes with gorgeous tulips as part of the stamp, which I will be showing you tomorrow, but for these cards I have only used the sentiment worked perfectly with the cross.

Isn't it a pretty cross? I can see that I will be using it lots, not just for Easter but for Christening, Baptism, Confirmation etc. I created a frame around my sentiment using the Paper Piercing Essentials pack. I think it gives it a little bit more interest and focus don't you?

My Superhero!

I am so late in entering the Less is More challenge this week! Still, better late than never right?

So here is my entry into the Masculine themed challenge...

This is another new set I recently's super great for kids' cards! 

After I stamped the little fella in Baked Brown Sugar, I coloured in his cape and boots in Real Red and Pacific Blue. The sentiment was fussy cut and mounted on Dimensionals and I paper pierced the image panel to give some added interest.

I had my cards placed into a little shop in our new market yesterday! I'm only starting with new baby and christening/baptism card for now, but it's a start and I'm very excited about it! So I shall have to make plenty more now to have on my regular church stall!

Have a lovely Friday...make the most of it with your little ones...back to school next week!
