Summer on my mind!

Here are some cake and ice cream inspired cards we did at The Glitter Pot last Saturday. The templates used are my own design and should you want to get a copy, please visit me at The Glitter Pot next time you are passing and I'll let you have one!
Hope you like my ideas! Can't wait for my new stamps to come out.....end of February will soon be here!!!!

The tag is a Woodware punch and the wording is from JGCL519. Layered Bazzill card, glitter glue and the score board was used to create the embossed lines on the ice cream cone. The card stands up as only the ice cream cone is the card base, the fold is under the pink ice cream!

Here we have a cute little girl cup cake with a shrink plastic tag from the new Hero Arts 'Things' cling set. Googly eyes add a little something extra and would be great for children's cards or party invitations. The cupcake is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and small amounts of glitter glue applied to the tops of the embossed dots.

This cake really is piled high! A length of card was scored and made into a concertina. I punched holes across the top and threaded a ribbon through securing it on the reverse before mounting it on the card. Random shapes were made from Bazzill card and each piece was decorated differently, embossed, stamped and I created patterns with glitter glue too. Another shrink plastic tag was added, and the Hero Arts words was used as mentioned above.

Fluffy is out in February!

Have been working hard on new stamps and making cards with them for the new Woodware catalogue. I like to ask customers in craft shops and on my classes for ideas for new stamp designs and this time I have drawn a couple of cute dragons for a nice lady called 'Fluffy', not her real name.... but I met her in The Glitter Pot ages ago and she wanted a dragon, so here is a picture of the card I made using Fluffy's little girlfriend! Fluffy is green but also purple, orange and will have to wait to see him in the catalogue.

Fluffy, if you read this, I hope you like her!!
