Cookie Cutter Christmas...

I am still trying to be good and getting rid of some of my crafty bits (which I have done!)...but I have a lot of small bits of DSP and card so when I recently had a SU party I bought the Cookie Cutter Christmas set which is ideal to pop onto small cards...
I've only managed to make a couple of cards this afternoon but thats a start...thought I would give some of these small cards to my grandchildren to give their friends at Christmas..I am sure they would also like to make some of these cards themselves..

Thanks for stopping by..

Parchment and Groovi...

A few friends and I got together for a 'play day' with Groovi plates and this is one I managed to complete with the help of my friend Janet on the gridwork...its not perfect t but I'm ok with the results...its just practice... the problem is when you have more than one hobby its making time for all of them...but stamping is still my first love...

This card is going to a lady who is about to celebrate her 50th birthday... oh I wish!...

Hope you have a great weekend whatever you are doing.

Mixed Media Workshop with Janie Burnett-Bleach

 Five of us did a brilliant workshop with the very talented Janie Burnett-Bleach yesterday who also designs stamps for Hobby Art....
None of us had done anything like this before but thoroughly enjoyed learning. 
 I was quite happy with my finshied Canvas ...the design is not mine but Janies..three of us did the same, Jill did a beautiful canvas using the Dandilion stamps and Val  used the Dragonfly stamps  ..Janet and Eileen had just needed to  finish off theirs at home.... can't wait to do another workshop.
 I'm not happy with the colours on my bird but I want to do another canvas using this stamp set which is called Nature Reserve (Hobby Art) designed by Janie..I also added a few small bits of gilding flakes in a couple of places in the background.  Off to Hobbycraft to buy some Acrylics....

September craft club meeting...

 This month we played with Brusho's and some Pixie Powders...we only touched on the simple ways to use them e.i. backgrounds, using die cuts etc.  This little S U black cat was given to me by my friend Jill...it looked purrrrect on my card.
 I found a piece of stamped leaves in my scrap box so I got some inks and tried to do Autumn colours...I only needed to die cut a couple of leaves to use in the corners 


 This card was very quick just cut out a butterfly and corners and again found a snippet of DSP which matched perfectly.


 These lovely dies I cut out at when visiting my lovely friend Gill when we were on holiday last week...just added a few few birds and a pale moon.

This I think is my favourite card ...my friend Gill very kindly cut the peacock out for me and all I had to do was to 'make' some peacock colours using my brusho's and as the inks so such a long way I also had enough to cut out come leaves and flowers as well...
I would like to revisit brusho's in club next year and try using stencils and texture on backgrounds.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend...

Relax......

Back to a stamping....this stamped  image is from a very very old stamp that I no longer have but I do know the company that made it vanished many years ago but someone out there may well recognize it the stamps were quite large.
Perfect for a masculine card I've it coloured with copics and I found a scrap strip of a punched border from an old SU border punch...
