Rochester Workshops April 2014.......The Results!

Hi ho crafty pals. Kayla,(pictured above) from the USA, came to one of my Rochester Workshops recently. It was the VERY FIRST time ever, that she had tried paper crafting / card making and SHE ROCKED!
As did all my other ladies... apologies to them as I've lost, due to camera problems, all their delightful smiling faces.
But I did managed to save all the card pictures from BOTH workshops! Phew....

Didn't  they do well! Thank you so much ladies. You were amazing fantastic and so much fun!

Memory Box Stencil And Gilding Flakes.


Hello again! The card I'm sharing today was created using the Honeycomb Stencil from Memory Box.
My stencil came from a local craft shop, Oyster Stamps
Apply Versamark ink, with a sponge, through the stencil.
Remove the stencil and plonk it into some water.  


Apply Mica Boss powder to the image, its like an embossing powder. Heat it with a heat gun, it goes very sticky, add the gilding flakes to cover the image. Burnish gently, I used a clean,dry stencil brush.
Tip the excess flakes back into your container.
A few Quickutz die cuts and job done.
Thanks for looking today

New Memory Box Stencils.


Evening all. 
I've been playing with some smashing new Stencils from Memory Box today. I've used two on this card.
Birch Landscape and Mini Dots. Both Stencils are available from Oyster Stamps.
I attached the Birch Trees stencil, using low tac tape, to the reverse, white side, of some Centura Pearl card stock and blended various colours of  Distress Inks through the stencil. Keeping the first stencil in place, I placed the Mini Dots stencil down on top and did a quick spray with Dylusions White Linen ink. Looks like snow!



Remove and wash both stencils in warm water. 
The stamp is an old one from my stash. I never throw anything away! 
I first saw this technique from this very inspirational blog here .


Thank you for looking today and for all the very warm comments on Face book and by email. Thank you for your interest. 
Back soon.
