What lovely weather we've had over Easter. Spent a couple of quiet days - just hubby and I, in Norfolk, walking by the sea and eating ice-cream!
Still playing with Promarkers and here are another couple of cards I've put together; one with a Tilda stamp and one with a Lily of the Valley stamp. This was supposed to be for my youngests birthday but he walked in while I was putting it together and said 'I like that Mum.' Oh well, I'll have to find something else to do now, lol.
Well, I've finally had time to have a little practice with the Promarkers I bought ages ago. I don't usually 'do' character stamps, but when I see the beautiful cards other crafters have created using Magnolia, LOTV, Whiff of Joy etc, I really want to produce pretty cards too!
Here are my first two attempts - I need lots more practice but even so I'm quite pleased with these.
What a busy March that was!
I had a great time demo-ing the Eco Green range of paints for Creative Expressions for three Saturday's in a row. Their seemed to be plenty of interest in the range, particularly in Angelsey where I had loads of people stop by. I have to say a big thank you to all the Garden Centre staff and local crafters who made me very welcome at all the places I visited. I also had my demo day at Stampezee using the Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powders. The day went so quickly and I would like to thank Sarah - lil paper pixie- if she reads this, for keeping me topped up with caffeine.
I have been having a little play afer seeing a project for a wall hanging by Jean Hardy in Craft Stamper. I must say the first one I made is very much like her's as I really liked the colour scheme and papers she used although I hand cut the frame and squares as I didn't have the ready made one she used-
I was so pleased with it that I decided to do another one using the Sewing Plate from Creative Expressions - a little smaller and more vintage, as a sample for my demo day-
I had a few nice comments about this hanging so now I'm doing a variation of it in a workshop at Stampezee in May.
Below is the card we are making in my June workshop, using Creative Expressions Cupcake stamp plate:
Cutting apertures using Nesties and painting with mica pigments - a pretty card!
