Your place must be reserved at least 7 days before the class (14 days for Octobers class) with full payment being made to reserve your spot. If you can't attend for any reason and cancel after your payment is made I will send you the kit to make the cards at home or I'll gladly make the cards up for you and send them on to you finished after the class has been held.
I look forward to seeing you here soon!

Touches Of Texture Pair Of Cards.

I'm back from my holiday in Kos- yep, where the earthquake was! We were all completely unscathed as our hotel was a newer one but we visited Kos town and saw some damage to the older buildings and the port side there which was sad. We certainly didn't let it spoil our holiday had a really lovely time away together and would highly recommend Kos and especially the hotel we stayed in :-)
So, now we are home it's all go here. The roof is (finally) being fixed this week -hooray- but there is a gritty layer of dust all over the house, not so yay ;-)
Luckily I have had a lot to make in my craft room (which is, as yet, untouched) and I been on a crafty roll so have made loads of fun cards! These ones are some I made before I went away using the very lovely, but much underused by me, stamp set Touches of Texture.....
 This was in a Pink Pirouette colourway
 And this the Wisteria Wonder version.
We made these to send up to Manchester so they have a little bee on there which is also in this set.
 I love the lace border along the bottom edge.
Which colour do you like best?
Thanks so much for looking today, I'll be back tomorrow with another card :-)

New Driver, Paper Pieced, VW Beetle Card!

My friend's daughter passed her test a while back and so (obviously) I had to make her a card to celebrate and I just realised I forgot to share it with you! Unfortunately I didn't have any current car stamps but luckily, I keep a few of my very favourite retired stamp sets and so I could make this card using the Beautiful Ride set....
I like how this set works great with paper piecing.
Sentiment is also in the set
Add in a few tiny clouds from the Lift Me Up stamps and dies and a few sequins to finish.
She was pleased with her card :-)
Well, I must get better at sharing things here sooner! I'll work on it ;-)
'Till then, thanks for looking today! Back tomorrow with another card....

You are my #1 Hero!

Today I have a pair of cards for you although I actually made a third design but I managed to send them before I photographed them, doh! These were more cards for emergency services and I used last years Ronald McDonald charity stamp set, called "My Hero" let's take a look...
You could use the Best Badge punch to punch these out quickly, if you have one of course (I don't ;-))
These mostly blue ones were for the police.
And some ambulance green ones ;-)
Emerald Envy is a perfect colour for this.
And together to finish.
Short and sweet from me for today, I'll be back soon with some more for you, 'till then...

'A Little Wild' Lion by Stampin' Up!

I'm back with another "A Little Wild" card! This time I've used the little lion to make another peek-a-boo card, notice the little loop of twine under the lion?
 I teamed him with some paper from the wood textures pad for a rustic look, lets see shall we?
I die cut a circle from the paper using the stitched edge framelits (have you noticed how much I adore these??) and added a little **Halloween Night bakers twine** around the bottom before adhering it flat then popped the circle up on dimensionals.
**At the time of writing this post this twine is still available on the clearance rack for just £2.20 - and thats for two spools!! Go, go, go!!!**
I die cut the stamped and coloured lion from shimmer card using the matching framelits. I then die cut a second, plain layer so I could add the loop of twine between the layers to keep it hidden. Stamp the sentiment and we are good to go!
How super cute are these little guys?!
And before I go I just wanted to share a full shot of the lion (I trimmed the tag topper away) with it's front and back. I am hoping to make a spinner card with this guy soon...
OK, that's all from me for now. Are you a fan of "A Little Wild" now too?

Using 'In The City' Hostess Stamp Set

Hello there!
I was very excited when I saw this new hostess stamp set in the new catalogue :-) I love everything about it! I made this card with my first play by simply stamping a selection of outlines and using a variety of colours to in fill them in before fussy cutting them out. I had no idea what I was going to make, I just *needed* to play with it!! See....
I ended up adding some images flat and the others with dimensionals for a layered effect.
Pop in a few clouds, the sun and a plane and I was done!
I plan on stamping a whole scene and watercolouring it very soon too....
Crazy, modern and fun! I love it!
You can earn this by hosting a workshop or collecting orders over £150 or even placing your own large order! Hop over to my SHOP to choose...
I do hope you enjoyed today's card? Thanks so much for stopping by today :-)
