Christmas Cards

Hello sorry it's been a while, but i've found a couple of chrimbo cards for you, just what you want in July!!! where has the sunshine gone?

On this card I've used a brayer on some glossy card to create the background on then stamped and heat embossed onto the card and then to create the snow effect I've used bleach to create the snow, this is really fun to do (a bit smelly) but the hardest thing to do was to know when to stop, otherwise it looks like you've got a blizzard going on!?!

This a card I made a using stampboard which is great fun if you have never used it. I've blended
to colours of blue and then dabbed the edges with gold. Stamped the image and heat embossed with black.

Some more Fairies! & Melt Art Cards

I've been looking around my craft room and thought i'd show you some of the cards that i've made at workshop over at Dawn Bibby's shop, i usually go with my mum on these as she likes to have a dabble now and again.

These ones are using the melting pot in a class with "our Jane" this was good messy fun! so i was a happy bunny:)))))) I don't think my mum was toooo impressed at having messy hands, but she did enjoy using the melt pot.


Here are some cards and a fairy in a jar that i made in a class with Lindsey Mason. We have used alcohol inks (which was the first time i had used them) to create the background on glossy card and them stamped on the front with a fairy stamp and stamped her wings again on acetate to give a nice illusion to the card. The fairy in a jar was fun to make using alcohol ink to create the colour on the lid and to dye the ribbon, which is a great way to make coloured ribbons.
