Got To Love HunkyDory!

Especially when someone asks for a card for the next day.  In these circumstances HunkyDory saves the day every time.

1 x 8" x 8" card and 1 x DL card from one topper sheet and one A4 backing card, added an A4 sheet of Silver Mirror card and some rainbow gems...They turned out lovely.

Time For Christmas Cards

This is my favourite layout and one of my favourite artists.

This is an 8" x 8" card with Mirri Card base, white glitter card, white and blue Centura pearl card.  Snowflake and snow drop embossing folders.  I can't remember where I got the swirls from but the Snowflakes are from Spellbinders 2013 Snowflake Pendant dies.

Girlz Got It Going On! Thought I'd Have Another Go...

with this one. This is my take on Louise's card, I used a mix of old and new, old lace embellishments and new, up to date topper and backing and I quite like the finished result.  I've had the self adhesive cork backing paper for a while and never had the chance to use it.  I like the texture it brings to the card along with the lace.KennyK's Krafty Krew

Thought I'd give Kenny K's Krafty Crew Challenge a go, have only entered once in all the time I've been following it, so about time I gave it a go again.  This is a case (I hope) of one of the DT's cards, got my promarkers and Copics out again to colour the image and used some spellbinder dies and some old backing papers I had.

Air Dry Clay...A Card Two Years In The Making

I bought some air dry clay about two years ago for this project, finally this is my first draft.  The script is a Hero Arts wooden stamp but any script would do, I inked the stamp, pressed it into the clay and then cut the shapes out with small heart shaped cutters.

It Seems Like Forever Since I Made A Card

Got a lovely Stampendous stamp from my local craft shop and was desperate to do something with it and this is what I came up with, an 8x8" layered card...I do feel its missing something though!

Party Paws

Got my new party paws cd and I have to say I am loving it.

Shaving Foam Printing

I saw this on TV and was really excited about trying it out. I bought cheap shaving foam from Morrisons (26p) then....

1. Fill the tray with foam

2. Spray Mica Spray very close to the foam to get intense spots of colour

3. Swirl into random pattern

4. Place paper on top and make sure you press into the foam so the paper makes full contact with the Mica.

5. Lift paper off and use a ruler or similar to scrape the foam off the paper.

6. Lay the paper, face up, on to a piece of kitchen roll and wipe printed surface with a separate piece of kitchen roll to dry, then another piece to buff.

I used two types of card, coated card stock, which gave me a subtle colouring with no Mica glitter to it and a quality printing card that gave me an intense colour with Mica glitter. Both ways looked good and it was lots of fun.

I did reuse the same foam a few times and it just gave me different looks, definitely worth playing around with to make backing papers.
