Craft Consortium Christmas Stamps - And Handmade Cards

Look away now if you don't want a dose of festive craft, but if you do, welcome. This blog is all about the cute festive stamps from the brand Craft Consortium. 


I don't know about any of my creative friends who might be reading this, but one of the things I enjoyed the most, at least in the early stages of lockdown was the time to completely switch off and sit and craft, without anything else in the back of my mind. I've finished a couple of projects, started a couple of cross stitch (they will be finished at some point), and had the chance to properly play with my Craft Consortium Christmas Stamps. 

These guys are fast becoming my favourite brand for Christmas stamps, and very much up my street with their cute theming. One major plus point for me is the variety of stamp sizes on one sheet of stamps, making them ideal for different card sizes, sometimes building scenes, and making matching items like gift tags. The sets I have that I use for Christmas are 

It's Snome Time Robin Mischief - which has a large main image, two smaller scene based stamps, and a couple of small accent stamps. 

Little Fawn And Friends Best Friends - This one has individual stamps of woodland animals, and small elements like a tree stump and a toadstool. Some of these are great for snowy winter scenes. 

Winter Woodland Christmas Card
Both these stamp sets are currently available on the website for £4.99 each (great value in my opinion). They come on a printed acetate sheet, with another plain sheet for storage and they are really nice quality compared to some stamp sets I've worked with before - full marks for tackiness and ease of stamping. 

I'm including a few of my favorite Christmas card makes in with this post so you can see more of how these stamps can be used. If you are a stamper and you've heard of, or use this brand do let me know, I'd love to see what you make. 

This post is not sponsored in any way, I just genuinely love using this brand, and am trying hard not to look at some of the other beautiful crafting goodies they have on-sale.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
