Firstly a very Happy New Year to all my lovely ladies, I do hope this year will be a very good one for you all.
As you can see this year has not been such a great start for this blog. I spent the last few days trying to get this post to upload & if by magic this morning it finally decided to oblige me & hopefully now you can all see the cards we are planning to do.
So here goes with the first cards of 2014
Card 1 – A Bit of Stamping & Tearing
This card was inspired by one I saw at the recent Stampin Up convention but as I do not know the original creator of the card I cannot give them the credit they deserve, if I do find this out I will add their name here.
C6 blue card + extra scrap
Brown card – cut to 14.3x10cm
White card – cut to 13.8x9.5cm
Extra white card
Inks to match card colours
3 coordinating stamps – mine are from SU’s The Open Sea set but any theme would work
Brown string or white string which I will show you how to colour
Water reservoir brush
Card 2 – It’s all about the Swing
This card I admit to copying totally from the Mollie Blooms Birthday Parade kit but I thought it would be a fun card to make BUT be warned you will need to follow the instructions exactly to make it work
