This week's 'Special Offer' from Papermill

Hi all, hope you're having a good day so far......I'm in the shop writing this, and I'm bloomin' freezing (must get the boss to install central heating! listening, darling youngest son?'s YOUR shop and I'm risking pneumonia, sitting here shivering!)
Anyway, onto this weeks offer from PAPERMILL
A small box of Maroon 270gsm cardstock
£4.00 for approximately 80 will be a fab addition to your crafty stash,
and it's lovely cardstock to work with, cuts beautifully on the Bigshot ;-)

Close-up of the very precise cut

Easy-peasy!....Four corner die-cuts, and a sentiment stamp. FIVE minutes work!
Tattered Lace corner die, and a sentiment from Bee Crafty, one of my purchases from my trip to the NEC last Saturday.

Just a close-up to show the lovely deep maroon colour.

I love this stamp from IndigoBlu, and can see me using it for lots of our friends this coming year.
(I'm not saying all of our friends are 'plonkies' of course.....but if the cap fits, etc. etc)
I really love the effect of stamping onto white linen cardstock....makes the image look as if it's printed onto canvas.
But then, I just adore white linen, and use it on almost every card I make.

Well, that's it for today, Catch you all tomorrow....lots more to blog xx


  1. Two fabulous cards Barbara. The die cuts look amazing and the IndigoBlu stamp is brilliant. The maroon card looks lovely to on both cards x
