This week I've been working on some of the "hearts for all occasions" cards. Some of the examples with the hearts striplet appeared with the striplet boards. Yet again lots more examples need doing but this is an initial board of ideas to use on tomorrows workshop.

This week I have been trying to do more examples for the all day creative stamping - Fab 50's workshop and some more with the Gemini (border) dies from creative expressions.Both workshops are on for the first time this week , to be repeated later (see website for details)

Fab 50's are as shown - using different products with our stamping.

I have tried to show that the Gemini dies can be used with lots of other techniques. I have used them here with dies, stencils and some stamps - more of those to follow. (The Poppy is a new stamp from Woodware)

and then before this last week's workshop I managed to do a few more cards  with the striplets which I showed last week

Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year. My Christmas was great - especially seeing our grandson who is now 10 months old and we hadn't seen him since August! The disaster over the Christmas break was a roof leak during the snow which damaged lots of papers so I spent a week drying off the partial affected sheets to use in workshops or sell for silly prices and sorting everything. I therefore made no cards for 2 weeks.
I had started before the break working on the striplet dies from creative expressions. Here are some examples - I have looked at different backgrounds to them- metallic leafing, glitter, flock, embossed sheets decorative sheets etc. The lovely thing about these dies is that you can extend them to the width you want. Here are some examples although I do intend to try more.

I am also halfway through the Gemini border dies and the creative stamping "Fab 50's" workshop boards so they should follow soon.
