I've been busy with various workshops and card orders since my last post but I also managed to complete the board for the latest creative stamping "Labelled with love". We did the all day workshop on this yesterday and I wanted to take pictures of the different colourways that some people did but in the rush at the end didn't get round to it.
I concentrated on different ways with different types of glitter and metallic leafing but there were other cards using distress inks and papers from a creative cardmaking magazine plus of course various dies. I have been trying out different ways with the creative stamping striplet.
The pictures are not good - sorry! but hopefully will give you some ideas of how to use the magazine stamps of which we still have a number left. Thought it more important to get a posting than wait till I can do and post a better picture

Sorry there was no post last week and i only have a few things for this week having been busy with workshops.
 During our Stencil course I was asked about the sparkle texture pastes on acetate and the next two cards show this. An earlier card using trees can be seen if you go back a few postings

When doing pearlescent paste mixed with micas it didn't dry so we heated it for this lovely effect

Then some popular specials.
Got to post now as battery running out!!!!1

I was distracted from my plan this week by being asked to do a sympathy card. I set about looking at partially done cards/flowers to get these done then looked at variations of cards for an autumn / Christmas theme. These are some of the cards I came up with.

For these cards I adapted a style I had done earlier for this season

Wanting to combine stamping techniques with die cutting I tried these ideas. The bird is from Stampendous and the poisettia from Woodware. Creative expressions dies
  This one is awaiting the greeting - the holographic card has really caught the light here!
