Open Day Cards

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Open Day last Saturday, lovely to meet lots of new ladies and hope you picked up at least one or 2 ideas or tips from the demonstration!

These are two of the cards I made....

Yes, I know we are still in August but I made a Christmas Card!

This card demonstrated a variety of techniques including heat embossing with gold embossing powder using a heat tool with the winter tree stamp. The edges of the cardstock and papers are inked with peeled paint distress ink using a blending tool. To finish off the card I put  gold square brads in the corners and gold stickles on the tree. Most of these products sold out at the Open Day but restocks are coming soon if you are after any of them!

This next card is one of my favourites and so quick and easy to make. The paper is from the Abrianna Mat Pad matted onto pale blue card stock, with the edges inked with blue ink. I then wrapped purple embroidery thread (3 strands) around it, taping it on the back to secure and placed a butterfly from the gorgeous Abrianna Grand Adhesions pack over the area where the threads crossed.

Two exciting things happening at S J Crafts over the coming week.....
  • I'll be posting a Giveaway tomorrow!
  • S J Crafts are putting together a small design team (scrapping & cardmaking!) ~ more details of how to apply coming soon!
Enjoy the rest of your day! x
