More lovely cards that I received from my club ladies.

It takes me an hour to sew a button on, can you imagine how long this card would take if I tried:

Bendi Card

Beautiful card, made by the lovely Margaret from my club. She didn't know when she made it that it matches the colour scheme in my front room :)

My Cards

A couple of the cards I received from my craft club ladies this year. Pure coincidence that they have used the same sentiment die.

Couple of cards made with Tilda papers and various Just Rite stamps. I've added Glamour Dust to the papers.

I've been ill for the best part of a fortnight so had to finish off my cards for posting in a mad rush.

This is a flat card, I try to do these at this time of year as we have relatives who are scattered about the country and the postage soon mounts up.

The main stamp is by Crafty Individuals, I've used distress inks to make the backgrounds. The snowflake stamp is by Chloe, I've roughly embossed it and added Glamour Dust in places.

Chloe stamps again, this time with vellum. The third card I made using the same two holly stamps but in different colours.
Noel stamp is also by Chloe, foliage die is by Sizzix

For this card I used the same stamps as my previous post, holly by Chloe's Creative Cards, and text by Woodware.
Instead of acetate branches I've used a Sizzix die from the Holiday Greens set.

Text stamp is by Woodware, I mis-stamped in the centre hence the positioning of the holly poinsettia.

I try to point out my mistakes to my card club ladies as I think there is usually a way of rescuing what you've done, and it can sometimes be disheartening if you think you're the only one who can't stamp properly!

The holly and branch stamps are by Chloe Endean
I've layered two different size holly, the card is a pearlescent midnight blue, not black as it looks here.

The branch has been stamped on heat-resistant acetate using Versamark and embossed with WOW embossing powder.
In the past I've struggled to stamp on acetate, using Stazon, because I find it too slippery. Chloe suggested using Versamark and embossing powder instead and it is so much easier as it's a 'grippy' ink.
It definitely does not work on normal, non heat-resistant, acetate though (ask me how I know this).
