For class this month we have 3 variations of 1 card lay out. The card technique is called Peek a Boo and no I didn't name it, even though it sounds like one of my creations. Hopefully you will like it so here goes with the cards.
Card 1 - Simple Peek a Boo - You can use flowers or butterflies to embellish this card with.
Card 2 - One for the Girls - the necklace is made with sequin "ribbon" I have loads if you would like some or you can use pearls as suggested in your email
Card 3 - One for the boys
I have one more design along the same lines so if we have time we can make that too. You just need card and lace. I will attempt to get it made before the weekend and post it then.
Hi everyone hope you are all okay. I've been really busy since we last met up and I hope you don't mind me sharing one piece of really good news.
Amy is now Norfolk junior archery champion and here she is with her trophy & medal. We are all the more proud of her as she did it whilst suffering from Glandular Fever.
So now onto what you really want to see the cards we are doing this month. I've tried to make them all stylish but very simple to make, so we may have time to spare. In which case if you would like to bring extra supplies to make one of the cards in another colour way then please feel free to do so.
Card 1 - 3 Little bits
Extra supplies 1" & 1 1/4 " circle punch
Card 2 - Double fold card
Card 3 - Pretty Flowers in a Row
Card 4 - Moonlight Mask now think Sunrise scene would be a better title
Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well & for those of you that attended the Thetford show last month, I look forward to hearing all about it.
I have certainly been busy since our last meeting. My new deputy sister's job is keeping me really busy and on my days off I have become an "archery widow" as I seem to spend my whole time being a taxi service, either taking them to archery practice or to a competition. But all that hard work has paid off as they both struck gold at their first ever competition & here are my 2 toxophilites (posh word for archery geeks)
Right now down to the real reason your reading this blog....
So this month fingers crossed we will endeavour to make 6 cards but hopefully you won't find it too hard going.
So here goes with this month's offerings ;
Card 1- Easy Chrimbo card take 1
This is the card I made at last class whilst you were all hard at work and I decided to have a "play" with the stuff in my box
Any Christmas die or punch should work so feel free to bring along what you have in your stash.
Card 1b - Easy Chrimbo card take 2
This card uses the punched out left over from the first card but as I thought it was a bit boring plain white I coloured it up & added some sparkle.
Card 2 a - false batik
This is my current favourite technique, I have found it soooo addictive. It's so easy to do and I have found different cardstock gives different results so if you have different brands of white card stock bring them along and see what happens.
You do needdistress inks for this technique no other ink will do & the dark colours work best. You also need open design stamps so the following stamps will NOT work
Remember If you can colour the stamp image in it should work
So here is my sample
Card 2b - Christmas batik
Same technique this time made into a Christmas card. Slight confession I forgot to stamp a small sentiment before adding my focal image & now I don't want to risk ruining it, so if you want a greeting bring it along with you.
Card 3 - A glimpse of Christmas
Here is an unusual way to use your scraps of patterned papers
Card 4 - Christmas Joy
This is a simple but effective Christmas design
Hope you like this month's card & hope you can all make it this weekend x
Hi everyone I do hope you are enjoying all this lovely weather we have been having. I bet if you are anything like me you end up dragging all your crafting kit outside, as it's too nice to stay indoors but it's a shame not to be doing something whilst enjoying the sunshine.
Well here goes with this month's selection. Don't forget it's Hethersett class this Sunday & Aylsham Saturday class is a week later.
Card 1 - Summer Flowers
Card 2 - all of flutter
If we manage to get another card sorted I will add it on here. Hope to see you all at the weekend.
