Inchie Card

Good evening, what a lovely day its been compared to yesterday, i have been on a bike ride this afternoon, it was really nice after yesterday's awful weather. I had a really good day on Saturday, myself, Dot and Maria were holding 3 classes, my theme was inchie, twinchie and grid cards, Dot was doing Cuttlebug techniques and Maria did Punch Art. Just want to share with you two of the cards the ladies made, i really enjoyed this technique and will definately be doing more. Hope you like the cards, will hopefully post more in the next couple of days.

Good morning, another wet morning here, good reason not to go out and get wet and stay home and do some crafting. I have a couple of cards to share with you, they are cards i took photos of and forgot all about. The little owl card is a stampin up punch i bought, i had it for about 6 months but never got round to using it. he bunting i made using a triangle punch and the EK Sucess scallop punch. My other card is a 'Dimension Stamps' stamp, i love this stamp it is a back to back stamp, i have stamped the front and the back of the stamp and joined them together using a piece of ribbon and place them in the centre of an apperture card. We had a class yesterday, so i will try and take some photos of the cards i made, and hopefully i will be able share them with you tomorrow. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning everyone, weather not too bad here at the moment, but that could change. I have two more cards to share with you which i made for a class. Two different style of cards, the card with the Mice on is a Penny Black stamp which i have had for a number of years. For the the second card i used an assortment of stamps by Inkylicious,i stamped the images on to white card stock then spritzed the image with with water, then heat set the image with a heat gun, after it was dry we then over stamped with black memento ink. I enjoyed this technique and was pleased with the finished card. I will hopefully be back with more cards in the next couple of days. Thanks for looking have a nice day.

What a miserable wet day we have had here today, doesn't look like it is going to get any better. Just want to share two more cards with you today, the first one is another another card made with a stamp from 'Dimension Stamps'. I stamped the flowers on to a piece of background paper, then inked around the edges with black dye based ink with a sponge. The flower was lightly coloured in with SU white Whisper White craft ink, i stamped the craft card with another text stamp from Dimension Stamps, not sure of the name of the stamps, but you can find them on their website.

My second card has been made using one of the Memory Box dies, this is a card we made on our workshop last week.

A selection of class cards

Good evening, it has been a lovely bright day here, a little bit cool in that wind, but its nice to see the sun shining. I just thought i would share a couple of the cards we made on Saturday's class. This first card is by Dimension Stamps, 'Luscious Lily'. The Lily was stamped onto a white tag, and then we applied the ink using the 'Direct to Paper' technique, this is one of my favourite techniques. All the ladies tags looked so different, some ladies used alot of pressure when applying the ink to the tags, and others did theirs more lightly, they all looked lovely.

The second card is one of the LOTV stamps, i couldn't decide whether to put a Birthday greeting on this card, but i thought it could also be used as a wedding card, so i left it blank for the ladies to decide which they would prefer. Hope you all have a nice evening, will try and post a couple more cards in a day or so.

Luscious Lily

Hello, i'm back, its been soooo long since i have blogged. I have still been making cards but also been very busy, no excuse i know. I found some photos i took a while back of some cards i made for 'Dimension Stamps', so thought i would start back blogging by showing you a couple. The two cards were designed using Dimensions, 'The Luscious Lily' stamp set, it is a beautiful set, and they stamp so finely.
