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...

Trainee patchworker...

My youngest granddaughter Grace who is 9 years old just loves anything crafty including sewing but she had never used a sewing machine before so we spent a lovely day together and I taught Grace how to use my sewing machine.
The first thing we did was to make a simple drawstring bag and we cut out flower shapes of fabric with a couple of my craft dies and this was the result.
All I've done is to actually cut the fabric out for her....
Grace then decided she would like to have a go at simple quilting so we found some scraps of fabric, Grace decided on the design and away she went...all I did on this piece of work was to tack the binding on for her as she kept pricking her finger on the sharp pins! 
 Its all Grace's own work, ok a little wobble on the binding edge but as you can see she was so happy with her quilt....I think Father Christmas might just bring her a sewing box with some fabric in.... I think its such a joy that she wants to learn to sew and knit,  my mum taught me when I was very young which enabled me to make my daughters clothes.

Thanks for stopping by ...

Self Closing Boxes


It was our club meeting on Wednesday evening and we made self closing boxes...I found these on Ann's Happy Stampers blog,

The girls made both sizes, the small ones are lovely for Christmas as you can put things like a nail polish, lipstick and small bits of jewellery.
We also used ribbon, mini magnets and velcro dots to close them....

Off to see the grandchildren now...

I've wanted this stamp set from Simon Says for a very long time but couldn't find it anywhere in the UK even tried EBay but no luck but thanks to my lovely blogging friend Darnell of djkardcreations I now have this really cute stamp set in my 'claws'...
I've coloured these cute little critters with copic pens, paper pieced the hat and scarf and used a memory box snowflake to complete my card.. I have lots of ideas for this cute little set...
Thank you once again Darnell I am one very happy lady...
