Sample storage

Came up with a good idea.  I've loads of Graze boxes and have been keeping them a while for a good use.   Just found one! I used some to decorate for a workshop recently, but have decided to keep my samples made for workshops etc in by category.  I've stamped on simple copy paper ( can't waste posh cardstock on a storage box!), and stuck to the outside of the box.  The stamps relate to the workshop or cards inside.  An A5 card fits inside nicely.

Birthday card and present using new colours

Have just made this lovely card and bag using the new Stampin' up colours blackberry bliss and mossy meadow.  Just love the blackberry, but I seem to get covered in purple ink every time I use it! Lol!
The card I CASE'd from one I saw on Pinterest, sorry don't know the source, but the bag, was from papercraft button (link to her blog below).  She has some great tutorials on you tube.

The stamp sets used were a new one "something to say" and "work of art", "everything Eleanor", and retired ones "perfectly penned" and "bring on the cake".

Gems and brads I found in the cupboard, don't know where they came from!

I hope you like them, and she likes them too.

Today's workshop

Had a wonderful afternoon with a couple of ladies making men's cards.  Jo decided to go freestyle and make her own using a selection of stamps and inks, different to what I had planned, but they were great.
  Busy crafting, did you spot the blue boxes?  I've a stack of Graze boxes which I've stamped onto coloured copy paper (not Stampin' Up) of which I have stacks of, with gorgeous grunge and off the grid stamps, and stuck to the box to cover over the graze writing.  Make a good storage box to keep the cards in afterwards too.

And here are some of the creations:

And these are the cards that I made, the one on the far right I've Case'd from a blog I saw recently, thanks ( can't remember where!) 

And I did manage to make one card whilst instructing my guests.

Involves triple layer stamping, first time I'd tried it, love the technique, going to try this again.

Hope you like them.

Ikat photopolymer stamps

Been having a play with my photopolymer stamps, stamping some backgrounds to use on cards.  Hope you like them.

Another birthday card

On this card I have used some retiring colours and my favourite stamp "off the grid" that's also retiring, colours used, midnight muse, gumball green, summer star fruit (all retiring) and soft sky (not retiring). Other stamps used are gorgeous grunge and perfect pennants. 

The inside message from hostess set express yourself - another retiring set but such a useful set.
