Paper piecing

Hi Blogers, I think the cold weather is beginning to set in, it is getting chilly in the evenings now, not long before I give in and put the heating on me thinks! My hands are too cold to craft.

This was another Jane Gill class at the Glitter pot. This paper has printed circles on it and we just punched them out to make a flower and stuck a button in the middle and placed a few leaves round the edge.
This time we used MME papers cut out the flowers and leaves and just placed them on randomly to create a beautifully simple card. And of course I do love this paper.
A little birdie told me it was your Birthday! Suits this card down to a T!
The Birdie was hand drawn then placed on to various shape nestabillities and the sentiment is from one of Jane Gill's word sets from Woodware. Finished with a few free hand squiggles.
I can not show them yet but in reply to my friend Jo's blog message, I have already started some Christmas cards with a few more idea's to put down on paper if I get a chance later this week. I am in two mind if  I should  go to Ally Pally at the weekend, it's just it takes such a long time to get home from there, the getting there is ok! Hope if you crafters do go you have a lovely time and dont spend too much!   Oh I am so funny!

Rosettes Galore

How good am I keeping up with my blog! it wont or can't last this is just too good... I have made a few cards lately but can not post them on here until I have posted them to my friends or they will sneak peak their birthday cards before the postman delivers them, and we can not be having that. Happy Birthday to Mrs Wonka  (the lovely Zoe) for Monday.
Again a few cards made a while back which never made it on to my blog. This was done with the resist technique using a Hero art flower cling stamp and white Stazon, we then sponged randomly with distress inks in various colours. The yellow Bazil was then stamped with Spiced Marmalade (I think) . The bottom panel was put through an embossing folder, finished with a little rosette and some stickles.

I really like this card as it is so different. The flower/rosette was made using various sized scallop circles either from punches or Nestabilities, cut into sections and curled with tweezers. I think the swirls were a Sizzix Die. Both of the above cards were designed by the very clever Jane Gill.

Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting xx

Horley with Julie

This was a workshop we done a while ago now, not sure how these lovely cards escaped my blog for so long. I had a lovely day today at the Glitter Pot's Christmas demo weekend, what a fab day with such talented people. Ohh and my poor purse suffered again............................... Have you all seen the new Christmas Tapestry stamps , I do love them.
 All the following cards were made with Craftwork cards Blossom papers spots and stripes.

Lots of card candy was also flying about. For this card one of their lovely multi shape templates was used to cut out the hearts to make the flower, another of Julies clever ideas.
And my favourite I saved for last, a gorgeous template of a Scottie dog, cut from card and covered with paper's , flowers a message and of course some more card candy and a bow or two. How cute is he!
 Have a lovely week and happy crafting x
