My slider cards

Well I hope everyone enjoyed the cards this time & Sylvia seemed to come away unscathed from her solo outing at Aylsham, although that could mainly be due to a lack of attendees. For all of you that were unwell I hope you are now feeling better soon & will be well enough to attend next month.

I thought I would show you my slider cards that I made following Sylvia's instructions.
I've used mainly Penny Black stamps. The trees in the background are cut from a sheet of backing paper that was in last years Dovecraft 8x8 pack & was called Christmas Blues, I think they work really well but let me know what you think.

This little fellow is just too cute for words. I added some bling by applying Stampin Up's Dazzling Diamonds using a 2 way glue pen to his hat & collar.
As you can also see I decided to add a greeting to the slider part of the card prior to assembling it, this was not so easy as it sounds but I found if you draw a line onto the slider through your gap on the card front you can then stamp onto this line to ensure it straight & can be seen. I hope that explanation made sense if not let me know & I'll take some photo of what I mean, to explain it more clearly.

This is another card I did using the same principles but this time the message is below the slider & is only revealed when the slider is pulled - Good Huh!!!!

If anyone would care to take a photo of their creations from the meetings please feel free to email a copy to me & I will upload it to the blog.

Well that's all until nearer next months meeting which is later than usual & is on the weekend of 24/25th October. Hope to see you all there, we have some great cards coming up.

Remaining cards for Bawburgh

Well I never did find my original samples despite turning my craft room upside down in an attempt to find them so I've quickly put together another couple.

This first one is a simple christmas card using a leaf punch to make the wreath.

I will attempt to punch out enough leaves for you all but if any of you have a carl punch like this one please can you bring it along with you on Sunday as it will save time if more leaves are needed.

Also if you have any red glitter glue can you bring that along too instead of clear glitter glue that was on your lists.

My final card is entitled Christmas surprise on your list. The surprise being I had no idea what my 2nd card I showed you last month looked like, so I hope you like what I came up with. We are going to use liquid applique & glitter on the santa hats. If any of you have another cute animal stamp you would prefer to use then bring that along with you. As you can see I went for less tradional christmas colours this time.

September cards

Hi everyone hope you all had a good summer I know I certainly did. I cannot believe school holidays are over no more leisurely lie ins BOO HOO.

Well back to business here are some of the cards we will be doing this month. Cards 1 & 2 are for both groups but 3 is for Aylsham only. Aylsham can see their 4th card on last month post, its the folded card.

I'm afraid I have managed to lose my own card samples in the pit I call my craft room so if I do not find them today, I will quickly make up some more samples & upload them tomorrow.

Also I will not be attending Aylsham this month as its my daughter Amy's 8th birthday party so I'm afraid I will be up to my eyes with screaming children. So please spare me some thought while you are all busy "playing" & go easy on Sylvia.
