Make & Take Friday 28th January

Quite a simple card this week.
I have used the same Martha Stewart edge punch for the border and the corners.

Craft Club Night 27th January

We made our own embossed background using a score board then brushing over with ink pad colours, then softly stamped on top.

Make & Take Friday 21st January

Quite an easy card this week.
I have just taken a soft patterned paper and stamped on it, added a little more colour using glitter pens, then it is just layered on to different colour card, white ribbon added. I then added the butterfly which is from the same set.
The stamp is from an Artemio set which can be found here--

Make & Take Friday 14th January

 A couple of the girls who come regularly requested a mans' card for this week.
I first made the backgrounds by rubbing Adirondack and Distress inks on to a messy mat then sprayed with water that has Perfect Pearls blue mica powder added to it, then I dragged the card through it, the first sheet was covered completely and the second sheet was just picking up the remainder so it was more patchy, I have added sticky mesh in the corners and down the side of the background for added detail.
The lighthouse stamp is from Inkadinkado and the seagull is from Elusive Images.

Craft Club Night 11th January

 Tonight at Craft Club we played with the Black Magic Technique.
Here are my 2 cards.
You need a solid stamp, black card, white Brilliance ink pad or 
another white pigment ink.
On the blue card I have stamped the flower at random over the black card using the white ink, dry with a heat gun, then take water colour pencils and colour over the flowers, then take the white ink again and stamp a smaller stamp on top of the coloured image. I added some white dots and layered on to blue card that has been punched using a Martha Stewart punch.
On the lilac card I just used a single stamp, stamped using the white ink and coloured over the top, this time I coloured over the top of the colour using a white pencil to shade the petals and added white Inkssentials pen to highlight the flower centres and the stems, stamped the swirls and punched the corners, the lilac card base has been embossed using a Crafts Too embossing folder on to colour core card and then sanded lightly to show a different shade.

Make & Take Friday 7th January

Our first card for the new year. 
I didn't plan on an Easter card but a few people thought it looked like it.
I stamped and embossed on to glossy card, I rubbed ink from 5 different Distress ink pads on to a messy mat then sprayed them with water and then picked up the colour with a brush and stippled over the picture.
Trimmed and layered on to cream and blue swirly card.
Why not come along on Sunday to make this card for just £1.50
