Saturday 10th November

Hello all I am demonstrating again at Alexander paper Supplies at Dagfields near Bridgemere today. I am demonstrating their new Lustre card selection I must admit its really nice has a sparkle to it. Love the colours too.

Here are some pics of my samples mostly Christmas but will be doing other non Christmas as well

I will be demonstrating embossing techniques and how to do your own paper peicings and decoupage from favorite images

Anyway I have 1 example for you using The tanda stamps retro men and women sets that I am giving away on my blog for details see Blog candy post HERE.

I stamped the male image with brown ink the female I inked the stamp with brown removed the ink from the lips with a cotton bud. Then used a red whispers marker to colour the lips. Stamped the images onto K & co striped paper as shown. In microsoft word i created a text box the same size as my panel , positioned text boxes where the spaces on my panel were. typed in my text. Made the small text box lines clear
printed it onto printer paper. Then taped with doublesided tape my panel exactly over the printed text box > Then printed the text again. Trimed the excess copy paper of and adhered it to the front of my card. Which also uses Alexander paper Supplies Lustre card

I have managed to create another paper based on a previous one for you to download today

If you haven't seen Tanda Stamps huge range of unmounted stamps then you are really missing out. You can see and buy then Here

I have been working on some projects, some of which I will post on my blog tommorow.

In the meantime

This card was made using a glass painting peel off. Marvy le plume pens and the watercolour technique. The believe stamp was stamped using the thumping technque this is where you tap the side of your pens in random places on the stamp until it is covered

This is a brag bag I bought from ebay for $8.00 with postage it cost me about £7.00
I made panels for each pocket. You can make panels to go with all your jackets and coats and just change the panels or you can do panels for every season.
