I've been AWOL for ages, as I've been working!! But it's finally done and I'm free, so it's a pity that just as I can contemplate loafing with a glass of wine on my new(ish) patio, it pours down. Still, it's given me time to catch up here.
The Card Club is going well, 2 groups a week, and they're a lot of fun.
I went to the Doncaster Summer Crafting show with two of my lovely friends from the Tuesday club, and met most of the rest when we got there. We had a great time and spotted a few bargains!
Still no Christmas papers, and everyone wants to get on with Christmas cards.
So here is some of what we've been making
This used a free embossing folder (from Simply Cards and Papercraft, I think) and it set off a hunt for back copies of the mag. I should be on commission!
Next up was this
Then by way of a change we did stamping and colouring. We heat embossed the flowers with white as a resist
Then it was time to tackle Christmas with no Christmas papers
A similar concept to the lovely Clarity stamp, but here the letters are die cuts and the O is an aperture. It features my favourite Christmas stamp of all time (probably my favourite stamp ever). We covered Santa with glitter using DS tape, which triggered a run on Ticker T Boo (bargain basement shop to non-locals) for the wide tape.
I'll be back soon with more of what we've been doing, but in the mean time
