Workshops

I haven't done much card making recently but this week I have gotten back into the swing of things, largely helped by attending a new workshop. 
I have been twice now and the first one was using Lavinia stamps and pan pastels. These are the cards I made. I was really pleased with how they turned out and I love using the pan pastels. They make such gorgeous backgrounds! 


This week we used brusho paints and heat embossing. 

These are the cards I made. 

I also made a bookmark that I turned into a card when I got home 

I used a mixture of stamps including Visible Image, Tim Holtz, Inkylicious and Sheena

I came home and started making Christmas cards so I feel like I have gotten back into the swing of things!

Bee Crafty DT

Hi everyone.
I've been a busy bee making my design team cards for Bee Crafty every week and I thought I'd show a few recent ones.

This is the most recent one featuring the Banksy Balloon Girl stamp


This card was done all in one colour which was a challenge for me as I am a huge fan of using lots of colours.


This card featured my favourite colours and one of my favourite stamps


These are just a few of my recent cards and I hope you like them!

See you soon

Bee Crafty DT - Smile

Hi everyone. I love using colour in my cards and crafting but this week I wanted to set myself a little challenge and do a card just using one colour.

Here is the card I have made 

I started by choosing my stamps. I love making the most of my stamps so I am always looking at them in detail and finding bits I can use maybe in a different way from the norm. 
For this card I chose the Winged Things Pompadour stamp 


I used just the tail section and stamped all the way round my card blank and my topper using Tea Dye distress ink. 


I stamped my Wordage Smile sentiment into a scrap of card and mounted it and the topper onto Kraft card 


I finished the card with some coordinating ribbon. 

I was pleased with how it turned out. I hope you like it!
