The card that never was…. aka a technique too far

I made this necklace sometime ago now and thought it would make a nice gift for a gilrfriend. Its always good to have something “in stock” just in case!!!

I used the stampset Boardering on Romance with Stazon ink to stamp the image onto very Vanilla card stock. I then carefully coloured the image with Stampin Up marker pens. I stuck the card to a rectanlular glass pebble and put several coats of Crystal Effects on it. I made the box from Early Expresso cardstock. I was pleased with the result. Hope you like it too x

Telford Shoebox Swap

Crumb CakeI recently attended the Stampin Up Regionals in Telford. It was great fun and hugely inspiring to meet so many talented people all gathered in one room at the same time. I came back fired with enthusiasm and a host of new ideas for me and Brian to think about. By the way, for those of you who don’t know, Brian is my Stampin Up snail!!! he and I are very close and he loves nothing better than an afternoon in my playpen with me creating lovely cards etc from the wonderful array of Stampin Up products. He is a messy worker, but i forgive him!!

For Telford i made a shoebox swap to share with fellow demonstrators in my group and although the miles kept us apart, i believe they enjoyed my efforts…or perhaps it was the wine i left two.

The card i made was created using the Secret Garden stamp set from the Spring Summer Catalogue. I stamped the design in Crumb Cake onto Very Vanilla card stock and matted and layered using Comfort Cafe DSP, Crumb Cake Card stock and then finished it off with a selection of ribbons and a pretty button. I hope you like it. Simple yet sophisticated xx
