July Playday

Get me being all organised lol.

Next Bristol playday will be July 10th and everyone is welcome to join in. Just email me for details.

In honour of that great crafters tradition of Christmas in July guess what the projects are going to be all about at next months playday??

Yep.. xmas lol.

In the main we're going to be focusing on building scenes using inks, sponges and scrap paper masks. If anyone is brave and wants to risk a brayer they're more than welcome to, personally I prefer my daubers and blusher brushes.

These are 2 samples I made using Lovely As A Tree and Welcome Christmas. I brushed perfect plum and pacific point ink across the top of some a4 white card which I'd masked with some torn paper. The trees were all stamped over the edge of the mask.

Mounted on basic black then white ran through a dot embossing folder. Very simple and quick card.

I didnt actually intend to make 2 cards but once I'd stamped the children & sleigh from welcome christmas on the last card I realised I had a good 3 inches that were too good to waste. I added another sleigh image and got my trusty knife and ruler out to hack it into 4 squares.

Mounted on perfect plum card with white card ran through an inked snowflake embossing folder. Strip of whisper white satin ribbon and a dangly sentiment made with the word window punch and a few jump rings.

All of the other samples I took with me can be found on my SU blog but I will add a few here over then next couple of weeks.

If it werent for 2 craft shows coming up I'd be wishing it was the 10th already ;o)
