Pocket Sillhouetes

Good Afternoon All

Hope you're all well and enjoying the weekend.

Had a great class this morning making a card and gift box to match.  Well actually this little box could have a dual purpose as you could use it as a box to give a gift of cards as the 4 x 4 cards will fit snuggly inside with envelopes as a true papercraft gift!

Take a peak and let me know what you think.

Essington Fruit Farm

Morning All

No class this week as we had friends visiting from Bristol and it was lovely to see them again - been about 8 months since we saw them last.

Today I am off to the Essington Fruit Farm:, were I'll be taking part in their Christmas Craft Fair.  This is the first time I'm going to this fair but I believe that there are loads of lovely stall's so come along if you're in the area and say Hello!

Happy Crafting

Tree Trimings and Beautifull Season

Good Evening All

Hope you're all having a good weekend so far.  Enjoying the sunshine as I've just read in the paper that we're going to have cold for 10 days...........yes, I'm the bringer of good news I know!

On a more cheerfull note we had a great class this morning, loads of chatter and crafting and everyone left with a couple of projects to be proud of.  My husband happened to be home for a bit of class this morning and said "there was a lot of noise coming from downstairs".  Just the way a craft class should be in my opinion!

We're back with Christmas again, I've had some requests to do Christmas again and actually to use the two stamp set's we used today and that's because both are really gorgeous!

For the first card we used Tree Trimings which is a two-step stamping set, so out came the stamp-a-ma-jig and away we went.  Some were a bit out of practice of the stamp-a-ma-jig so I think it may have to come out more often and perhaps along with the piercing tool and mat pack! I deviate as we also used the gorgeous vintage wallpaper embossing folder and brayer to add the ink to the folder for colour transfer!

For the second we used the beautifull *new* stamp set Beautifull Season.  Gorgeous set and if you've not gathered yet I think I'm in love with it.  With this we used the heat and stick powder to get the glitter to adhear well so that we could glaze the top with a thin layer of crystal effects.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Beautifull Season

Good Evening All

Hope you've had a great day so far, mine has been productive and enjoyable, which is good!

I thought that I'd show you a card and gift box that I've been making, actually this was done at my first workshop of the new Stampin' Up! year.  I absolutely fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw it in the catalogue as it's just beautifull for Christmas. 

For the card we used the image within the set, with the gorgeous little birdie!  Such a crisp, clear stamp and just gorgeous once done!  This was done with some shading.  I say shading, which it is but it's done using the "scraps" from the rubber that the stamp set comes in.  Yip - I'm at it again.  I have previously made background stamps using the rubber from the wood mount set's (cut up and stuck onto a block) and now if you peal the sticky background off the "scraps" you can actually place the section that the image came out of directly over the image and using a finger dauber get a shaded area!  Very clever use of the scrap and it would work well for so very many of the stamp set's, if not all.

For the gift box, we did a little masking as we did not want the bird on the box but only the very pretty holly leaves and berries.

Take a look and let me know what you think.  Any questions feel free to e-mail me and ask.

Serene Snowflakes

Good Afternoon All

A slightly better time of the day for post's now, following from my previous post about the NEW Idea Book & Catalogue being out TODAY!!!!  Wooooooooooohhh, take a look at my first post of the morning or down the left hand side of my home page for the link.

On to today's class, it was requested that this week we do a Christmas card. was not my idea but I was not complaining in the slightest as we do all need to crack on now that it's October and think about those little gifts and cards that we're going to give to our special friends and family at Christmas time.

I chose for us to use the gorgeous Serene Snowflakes stamp set and of course Tiny Tags for the accents.  We made a card and matching gift box which everyone thoroughly enjoyed and started them thinking about what they may put inside the box and for whom.  Just the result you want from a fun filled class.

Take a peak and let me know what you think.
