I'm Back! - and exciting news!

Hi All,

It has been sooo long since I blogged! I t has just been so busy recently with lots of new items coming in and being away at the shows, I haven't had time to make a card! But I did have a weekend off last week so I got lots of samples made ready for Create and Craft on 22nd August.

Here is one of the samples which I have made:


I have used gold mirri card, pearlescent navy card and a piece of gold paper from the Papermania Elegance paper book. The gold and cream papers have been stamped and embossed with my Holly Scroll stamps and WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder.

I cut a piece of gold mirri using the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Square dies and layered to the centre, the Reindeer has been stamped and embossed in WOW Rich Gold Embossing Powder and then glittered using Halo Glitter (which will be in at the end of this week!), then I just had to add a red gem to his nose (and a few gems to his antlers)!

The bow has been tied into a triple bow using the Bowdabra mini (which are also due in later this week!) with the Navy Silky Crush Ribbon and a new jewel added to the centre (coming soon :)). I then added the Most Wonderful Time of the Year Stamp to the bottom corner on an angle.  When I finished this card it just looked to be lacking something so I added a couple of the A/B Blue Rhinestone Clusters which have just arrived this week and they are yummy!

Now for the exciting news - I am really looking forward to the Great Northern Papercraft Extravaganza this year as I will be teaching breakfast workshops on both Saturday and Sunday morning!! We will be stamping and embossing onto vellum using the latest stamps in the range! Tickets can be booked through Craftwork Cards here - http://www.craftworkcards.co.uk

Bye for now,
Chloe
