Hi papercrafters! It's Carolyn hethere and I've highjacked the blog. He he!! I've been playing around with a cute little set of stamps from Crafter's Companion 'Humphrey' range. If you look closely at the samples, you'll notice that the two elephant images combine to make a very cute conga line!! You can eyeball the join when you stamp or use a stamp positioner.
I've played around with sponging, distress inks and simple masking techniques to create the cards. And the lovely background patterns? New foils from Alison Ellis called 'You're Invited".
Come and join me to make these cards in May. The class will be advertised soon.

See - I've had a busy morning!!!! My 12 year old daughter put together the papertole for me on Thursday and I made up the cards this morning. These are the new Fairytopia range from Docrafts - limited edition and all printed and die cut onto shimmer papers - absolutely gorgeous close up - the photos do not do it justice!
We think they look a bit like Pink (the singer) but there's no way she would wear those outfits!!
Great for tweenies cards.
What do you think??

Good Morning - Happy Easter everyone!!!! I got up early today (couldn't sleep) so finally finished off a couple of samples of Wedding Decoupage that I've had floating around my office for a couple of weeks.
I used a Reddy twin pack design and Kaisercraft papers along with gold stickers and paper roses to finish off my cards.

Just a quick picture of the sample for the FREE class that is running on Tuesday 17th April from 1-2pm. The class is already over half full so if you would like to come along - book in quick! We will be using stencils, double sided cardstock, heat embossing techniques, acetate, embossed cards, stickers, ribbon and punches to create this pretty little card.
