Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Today I have some more of my makes for the Bazaar.
I decided I wanted to make some boxes with six little cards inside.
These I made  by stamping my stars on snippets of white card so I will be joining my playground friends in the Snippets Playground.
 I really enjoyed making these.
As the sentiment is also a Christmas Song I will be joining the Allsorts Challenge as well.

 The cards are 4"x4" in size, and I made the box to fit them.
I started by free hand stamping my background with  stamps that came free with the Creative Stamping Magazine.
Then I stamped my stars onto snippets of card with Memento Danube Blue Ink.
I the matted them on to non shed glitter card from the pundland.
This I did by drawing around the stars and cutting them all out with a small border as I didn't have a die for them.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Oooh these are just so pretty Jenny - I love that blue and white colouring. The stamp is absolutely gorgeous too. Fantastic creations.

Big hugs to you matey - oh and Graham offered to do the punching - well I sort of planted a seed (if you know what I mean) and he fell for it. Ooops.

Love Sue Pxxx

Another lovely idea Jenny, these are so pretty in blue and white with the little touch of sparkle! The star stamp is beautiful.

Di said...

Brilliant cards Jenny - love the blue, white and silver. Wonderful layout and I'd super-impressed that you cut the outer star layers by hand. Fabulous and I do love how you're never beaten :)

These are great and make a lovely gift too, they should sell very quickly at the Bazaar.

Barb said...

What a wonderful idea for your Christmas Bazaar Jenny. Your cards are so pretty. When my Mum was in the nursing home I used to make sets of cards for fundraising but put them in cello bags. They look so much better presented in a pretty box. I hope you made more than one set. They are sure to sell. Barbxx

Blue & white is always such a crisp and fresh color combination, and looks so pretty for your boxes. Great job on free hand cutting the stars too. Yay for using up a few snippets as well. You've been a very busy crafter! TFS & Hugs

Brenda said...

Oh Jenny, these little boxes and cards are so stinkin' cute! I love the beautiful blue ink you used and I love your beautiful stamps. It's good to play along in a challenge again, even if it isn't all the time, it is good to get in "there" once in a while! Hug, Brenda

Darnell said...

This gift box of cards is just amazing, Jenny! I love your handmade patterned background and I'm in awe of the patience it took to make this set with all the hand work you did!! Hugs, Darnell
