Little Owl

Hi Crafter's

Some times I find it soooo difficult to come up with a card for a class ... ideas just seem to dry up.
The more I try to think of a card the more the ideas just won't come.

So Friday ( I've got a class Saturday morning ) I'm trying this....thats not working..... I'm trying that, which is not working either.... phew  the pressure is mounting....why do I do this to myself.... why am I not more organised .....

Oh well at the eleventh hour I did come up with a card......I normally do but not until I am starting to panic.

Finally my frantic experiments started to come together.... isn't strange how you try different things and and nothing is gelling ....then you pick up one thing..... and the whole thing comes together.

After I made this card  I fell in love with it, went down well in the class too.

Now what am I going to do for next week..... here we go again...... :-)

That's all for now. Thank you for visiting.  I'll see you again soon.

Gilding flakes. or Embossing folder

Hi Crafter's

A quick class catch up .

A week or so  ago I had been experimenting with gilding flakes and a floral vines mask from That Special touch. I liked what had come out of the experiments and so with a bit more fiddling I came up with a couple of ideas for a class.

So in the class last week we made the two cards in this post.

 The second card...... I stuck a square piece of clear sticky back ( Blue Peter style ) plastic onto the cleaned mask turned it over and applied gilding flakes to the sticky areas left exposed. This is then stuck onto the front of card.  I cut a frame from the same card stock as the c / blank Just to neaten the card.

In another class we made the same cards but we used an embossing  folder instead of the gilding flakes.

These are good for any occasion...... I hope you like them....
Well that's all for this post thank you for visiting my little blog.
I will be back with another card very soon.
