Gosh were does the time go, i have had quite a busy couple of weeks, we had a card class last Saturday with about 50 ladies split over the morning and the afternoon, so quite a bit of time was spent designing and prepping for that, but it was all worth it, as we had a good fun day. Then this week we have been designing some cards for Dimension Stamps Ltd, Roy is on Create and Craft on Tuesday. We also did a demo for our local craft shop on Tuesday and a make and take on the Thursday.

Just wanted to share with you the two cards i designed for our Saturday class, the first card is called 'Hold my Hand' by Diane Carubia, i've not used any of her designs before, but i thought this was so cute, it stamps beautifully. The second card is one of Dimension Stamps images, i thought it would make a good mans card.

Santas Selection

Hello everyone, what a horrible wet day. I was on holiday last week in Porthmadog, weather was a bit mixed, but managed to get a bit of walking done. Before i went away i did some examples for Dimension Fourth, using a stamp set called "Santas Selection". Here are just two of the cards i made using the set. For the first card i used shrink plastic for the greeting and the little embellishment on the thread, after i stamped the text block i then used distress ink and a water brush to high light the text, the 25th Dec stamp in the middle i covered with Glossy Accents. The second card, i coloured in using Promarkers, i used three of the stamps from the set to make this card.
