Pine Cone 2

  1. Thought you might like to see how this card has developed since last time. I saw on Sally Jo Houghton facebook page how to bevel the baubles and make them 3 d love the effect this makes a real WOW card now. Using only two inks my old favourites Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive . The baubles are cut out and embossed using your pricking mat and a ball tool to press in circular movements and make the raised shape. The tag are made from the left over piece of the card cut into 2" strips and using the tag punch to make the top leave square or round with the envelope punch. All tools may be purchased from me by emailing me.

Messy Table

My very messy Table today! I know it's not always tidy but this is not good looked in my card carrier and found 25 cards which want words or just a little work to finish them off.So that's my plan for today finish off cards pick up grand children from school go food shopping, take to gym cook tea and at least tidy the table. The tea set is on the table because my hostess trolley is at the cricket club!

Early Christmas

I've been using a set of my new stamps today, Ornamental Pine, WOW what a set I've used all the stamps but I've made lots of different cards. Here are three of then. I've so many ideas with this stamp set. these are the cards we've made at my class tonight. The first one is stamped using Night of Navy ink and card with silver embossed cones. the second is a little layering , old olive ink and Baked Brown Sugar for the cones and writing.
The last one I went for the in colours Tango twist, Mossy Meadow ,Lost Lagoon, and Hello Honey. I stamped the baubles first then masked them and stamped the pines with first second and third generation layers, with Christmas Wishes all from one set.
