Some Enchanted Evening

Hands up if my title got you singing!  Today's card uses the gorgeous Everyday Enchantment papers which are back to order during July only (or until stocks last).  You can even get FREE coordinating brads and ribbon if your order is £45 or more!  And we're not talking about a piddly little amount either, but 30 brads (6 each of 5 designs) and 2 spools of ribbon, each measuring 9 yards!

Here is my card... you saw the beginnings of it yesterday in my WOYWW post:

I used my much beloved postage stamp punch (which is currently retired, but I'm hoping it'll be back in the next Idea Book and Catalogue) to punch out six squares from a piece of Crumb Cake card.  I drew lines on the back in pencil to make sure I lined them up properly.  Then I punched six pieces of Everyday Enchantment paper out and stuck them to my Crumb Cake base.

Top Tip:  Blu-tack your card with the negatives punched out to your base card.  Then you can stick your positives into the gaps and they'll line up exactly when you position your top piece of card with dimensionals.

This is another snippety make for Di and friends in the Snippets Playground.  Hope I can get an extra 5 minutes on the swings, and maybe a go on the slide, for entering a second card!

Stamps: Apothecary Art
Ink: Basic Black
Card: Crumb Cake
Paper: Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper

Today's cat photo is as true of crafters as it is of cats:

Thanks so much for visiting - and an especially big wave to my new followers Buttons from Pushing the Right Buttons and Jules from Always With A Heart,


  1. Wow these papers are GORGEOUS Hugs Elaine

  2. You beat me to it...heehee......I made a card, today, using three squares of scraps, but haven't taken a pic yet...honestly! You inspired me to start using some of the TON of scraps that is almostblocking the doorway to my room, lol.
    Very pretty scraps you have, there, m'lady!

  3. Gorgeous card and I love that punch. x

  4. Lovely card Victoria, the papers are gorgeous! Hugs, Lisa x

  5. What a great way to use these pretty papers, especially the little bits and pieces that are left over from other projects!

  6. Fabulous card Victoria - great to see you playing twice this week! Like Elaine above, I adore the papers! Hugs, Di xx

  7. Beautiful card. I love the simplicity of it. Sometimes cards just get so overwhelming with "stuff" that you can't see them.

  8. LOVE this!!! These are my favorite papers--and I LOVE that punch! I need to get's in our new catty, so it should be in yours when it comes out! :)

  9. I did wonder what those bits on your very tidy desk would turn into and you have not disappointed Victoria.

  10. you may see a stranger ... (yes you got me singing - I love old musicals). Super snippety card. Have a lovely weekend. xx

  11. That song is before my time . . .

    Great snippet-type card. And top tip for alignment. TFS.

    Hope you've recovered from your gardening aches and pains now. Made another loaf yet?

  12. Wonderful card. Beautiful papers and Patchwork. Congratulations !

    Hugs from France.

    P.S. : I agree with you, cats like the scrap !!!

  13. No not singing - but only because I can't remember the tune! I have to say I am now the proud owner of this fabulous card - it's such a clever design Victoria! Vicky x

  14. Lovely card there. Excuse my being pickey but 5 x 5 = 25? Well it did in my school days?? Good tip on lining up!
    That cat pic is funny. For some reason Sandra came into my head - she doesn't do ribbons (too tight to use them!) LOL!

    1. Oooo you're eagle-eyed!! Thanks for that - I've amended it so I don't look so stupid!! In my defence, I'm a linguist and it's a well-known fact that linguists don't do numbers!)

  15. beautiful card :) i love all the different patterns and the punch you used!
    another funny cat pic LOL

    I'm old enough and yes the song is going on in the background in my head. Fablous card, Pretty papers, pretty colors and wonderful layout.

    That loaf of bread has my mouth watering, I can almost smell and taste it, haven't baked in an age.

  17. First of all I love it that you got the word 'piddley' in your post...that made me laugh :0)
    love how you've showcased the pretty papers behind those die cut patchwork in reverse IYKWIM.
