February 7th 2015 - Card Candi 2

A chance to play with our newly purchase stamps from Woodware. The backgrounds were created using Phill Martin's spray ink misters from Cosmic Shimmer - these do not contain mica so should not become blocked.

Used Phill Martin's Graceful Mustard for the spritzed background and the PVA pearls (from Cosmic Shimmer).  The backing mat and bow are in Squeezed Lemonade (Tim Holtz Distressed Inks)

This time the backing mat is some Taupe Pearlised card and the bow is Graceful Mustard.

Spritzed background and PVA pearls are again from Phill's Cosmic Shimmer Graceful range - Lavender

Leaf colouring and green mat are promarkers.

Spritzed Background is Vintage Berry, the red mat and shading on the topper are Aged Mahogany.
Spritzed leaves are Graceful Mint - paper piecing was used to "colour" leaves.

January - Make Your Own Stamp Pad

This month's class cards were inspired by a card I made at a Maria Simm's workshop.

Using Cut 'n' Dry Felt and Tim Holtz Distress Stains, firstly we created a stamp pad for a particular floral stamp.  Different colourways for the two flower stamps (both from Clarity Stamps)

Then we went on to create a random multicolour (3 colours) stamp pad - not striped.

The leaves and the saying are from a Clarity Stamp set, the lady walking is from Little Claire.
To create the ink pads we used cut'n'dry and Tim Holtz Distress Re-inkers.
