Claybord...

I'm really excited by this stuff - it's Stampbord but in much bigger sizes.
In my class at The Craft Barn on Saturday, we're going to be decorating an 8x8 piece with some of the lovely PaperArtsy Scrapcosy stamps:


You can etch into it just as with Stampbord but we're working on a bigger scale.

 


So, if you fancy having a go, just follow the link above.

Thanks for looking!

Distress Oxides on cards....

I've got a class at The Craft Barn on Thursday looking again at Distress Oxides. We'll be trying out various techniques and then, as this is the Card Club, we'll be making cards. Here are some of the ideas I've come up with:







We're using PaperArtsy Scrapcosy and Kay Carley stamps for something a little bit different.

Thanks for looking!

Alice goes to Uni...

... well Alice in Wonderland that is!
My daughter Katie's off for her final year at uni this week and so I've made her a door sign as she likes Alice in Wonderland:




This uses the Deep Red Alice stamps that I got from That's Crafty!.

Thanks for looking!

A Fairy House....

I love making things with tiny details so this Fairy House suited me down to the ground:


It's for a class at The Craft Barn next Saturday 26 August and uses some of the new Tim Holtz stamps and dies.
Here are some close ups of the details:

Teasels to tease...

This card uses a lovely collage stamp from Crafty Individuals coloured loosely with Distress inks and mounted on some of their background paper. The corners come from their Must Have section.


Crafty Individuals are going to be bringing out some more new stamps soon so keep an eye out on their website.

Thanks for looking!
