Club night 27th August

Tonight I gave everyone the same bag of card, mixed paper, and ribbons, brads and buttons. These are the finished cards.





Make & Take Friday 4th September

Today I thought I would bring the chalks back into use.
I have punched a large scalloped circle on a piece of scrap paper to use the punched hole as a template. Place template over a piece of white card and secure in place so it doesn't move, stamp the flowers and words using Versamark into the circle. Now use one colour of chalk and a cotton wool ball and pull in colour fro the edge , the colour will pick up more on the stamped area.
Trim the image and layer on to lilac then mauve card, the main card has been folded in half and then the front folded back, 4 pieces of card attached to each side then the image has been layered on top in the centre.

Make & Take Friday 28th August

A lovely clean looking card, swirls have been stamped across top and left side of a white piece of card, this has been layered on to mauve card then on to the card base. The flower stamps by Fancy Pants have been stamped and cut out, coloured and layered and placed in the top left corner. Add glitter and gems.

Make & Take Friday 21st August

This is called a wiper card because the flap pops up like a windscreen wiper when you pull the 2 ends of the card.

Make & Take Friday 14th August

On a piece of ivory card I have sponged the clouds using a cloud template, at the bottom I used a piece of ripped paper to make the hills by pulling the ink off the edge with a sponge in 3 shades of green. I then stamped the poppies in different colours. The red card has been stamped with Versamark.

Make & Take Friday 7th August

I have sponged atround the edges of a piece of white card and stamped the corners with a swirl stamp, placed 2 pieces of ribbon above and bolow, stamped a greeting and small flowers. I stamped a bird and cut it out and placed it in the middle.

Make & Take Friday 31st July

This card has a flap that pulls out from a slit in the front of the card so that long picture then joins up.

Make & Take Friday 24th July

Here I have used a sheet of double sided sticky tape and stuck it on a piece of white card then peeled off the front and stuck a rectangular layered image then around it I stuck on pieces of patterned and plain paperleaving gaps. Once it was filled i then filled the gaps with glitter.

Make & Take Friday 17th July

The background on this card has been made using Dylon cold water dye, a piece of white card has been sprayed with water then i have tapped the powdered dye on to the wet card and it runs into the wet card. I have used 2 different colours on here -purple and green, as you can see the dyes are made up of different colours.
