Card and topper

Hi Everyone from a dark and wet NE UK coast. Looks like being a crafting day today. My hairdresser is coming about 11 am to give a trim so will catch up on the local gossip. Thank you for calling, in you are always welcome.

At Make my Monday the theme is very unusual as they was us to stamp with anything but a proper stamp.

I made a card for a neighbour's birthday

Can you guess what I used for this background?

I used the bottom of my house slippers

Now for Moo Mania and More where they would like to see your favourite stamps or images.

For me it sort of depends what time of year it is. I have just sorted out my Christmas stamps as I have decided to make some Christmas cards even though I was going to just buy charity cards this year. This is a topper as I need to buy more card now to make the actually cards.
The stamp is one of the first I bought years ago and it is from Papermania. Not sure if they still have it but the number is PMA1032. I coloured it with Promarkers. 

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Lovely cards, great idea to stamp with your slipper, I have often stamped with my shoes when they have nice patterns on the soles. Thanks so much for joining us at Moo Mania and More, much appreciated! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Oh my gosh Chrissie, I can't believe you used a shoe for your background...AWESOME!! What a creative mind you have and it turned out amazing!! hugs :)

  3. Your slipper, oh Chrissie you are funny, but a genious, how cool is that pattern, love it. You should enter your card at Passion for Pro-Markers as their challenge is Christmas Tree, I have one to enter tomorrow....

  4. Cannt believe.... flower figures in slippers... and you stamp with them!
    I've some times used a carpet for that but this is really amazing. Anyway your cards are beautiful.
    Have a inspiring day ahead ;)

  5. Chrissie, I have so enjoyed reading your post and seeing your fantastic cards. I had a big smile when I saw what you used as a stamp. The soles of shoes will always have to be looked at with care when buying a new pair.

  6. Lovely cards, Chrissie. Great ideas !!!

    Thank you so much for joining us at MOO MANIA & MORE

  7. Well those are clearly slippers made especially for stampers! How brilliant to think of that... I suspect my slippers (soft suede almost-socks) would make for a far less interesting image! Really love the tree card too.

  8. Brilliant! Slipper stamps seem like a very good idea to me! I love the tree card - I have different favourites for certain kinds of cards too! Chrisx

  9. You are so creative Chrisse ! Love your cards ! Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

  10. Gorgeous.. I am in love with the pattern of your houseslippers.. great ! You made a fab card with them and the x-mas card is beautiful as well Chrissie!
    Thanks a lot for joining us again at Moo Mania & More!
    I need a haircut as well .. but as it always involves costs - I delay the haircut - I am a kind of greedy crook...lol.
    Happy weekend Chrissie - hope your weather will get better soon!
    We have fog today and just 2 degrees but the sun tries to peek through beautifully!

  11. Beautiful cards, how clever you are to use the bottom of your slipper as a stamp.

  12. Beautiful cards, the stamping with your slipper is fantastic ! It make me smile. Have a great weekend, xx

  13. I challenge anyone to use a more unusual stamp than yours! It looks great. Hope you're not treading ink all round the house now. Thank you for joining us at Make My Monday. Marina DT

    Lovely Christmas card, good to see you using your old stamps.

  14. I just love that you used your house slippers to create such a beautiful background!! How clever... One thing though I really hope you either cleaned the bottom of the slipper before using it again... And I would have never thought that the bottom of a slipper could be so cute!!! Great card... Thank you so much for joining us at MMM. Shawna DT
