Hello everyone, just wanted to share a couple of cards we made on our class yesterday.  The concertina cards has been made using Dimension Stamps stamps, i have made a variety of cards with this set it is very versatile.  I have also used a Nellie Snellen stamp called Sweet cowgirl, she is so sweet.  My last card was made using one of the LOTV stamps, i'm not sure what the stamp is called.

Good evening, it has been a miserable day here, i dont think it has stopped raining all day, it's like winter outside. I have got a couple of cards to share with you. Roy from Dimension Stamps was on Create and Craft today showing some of their new stamps, and a few of my designs were shown. It was nice to see the other design team cards, they had some beautiful designs. My first card I have used distress inks to colour my card, but first I stamped the Rose and the Larkspur flower with Versamark then embossed them with white embossing powder, I then dabbed a couple of distress inks onto a plastic sheet then spritzed them with water, then swished the images across the wet ink to pick up the colours. When the images were dry I cut them out using a square punch, and arranged them in a random pattern. For my second card I stamped the Poppy stamp onto the bottom of a piece of bazzil card with black memento, I then used bleach to take the colour out of the card inside of the poppy flower.

Two more class cards

Hello again, just wanted to share with you two more cards we made on a class. Both cards are made using LOTV stamps, the baby card is one I made for my friends daughter who had a baby boy. On the class I also made packs up in pink, so anyone who wanted to could make a baby girl card.
Hope everyone has a good evening, bye for now.
Good morning, I hope the weather doesn't take a turn for the worse, bit cloudy here at the moment. I have made another card using the horse and carriage stamp, but this time I have made it into a Jubilee celebration card.
I am hoping to post a couple more cards later on this afternoon if I get time. Hope everyone enjoys the celebration weekend.
