Eileen's September Workshop

So sorry for the delay in posting my makes from last week’s workshop; I’ve had such a busy week, I know that’s the same excuse as last month but it’s still true.  

Everyone had another thoroughly delightful day at Allhallows last Saturday with Eileen if you do have the change come along, you wont be disappointed I promise.  

 My favourite of these is the snowman card, in fact I liked it so much and it was SO simple to do I will be making many more of these;  You can find the techniques on how to make all these on Eileen’s blog at:

I love this snowman so quick but fun
Cleaver technique on this 1 go to Eileen's blog to see how its done.

Re-Worked Card

Sorry for my absence in September, too much going on with golf at the moment so no time for craft. I did make both the grandchildren ‘back to school’ cards, but forgot to photograph them, oops!  I’ve also started my Christmas cards, only half made the 1st 6 so many more to do..
This card is using Sam Poole stamps, I made & blogged this card last month but I’ve added another flower as I thought it was a little out of balance.   I’m a real fan of Sam’s I think she designs great stamps.  I distressed the white cardstock first using various blues & greens, then used a couple of stencils to add interest.  I stamped the flowers directly onto the card then stamped them again onto another piece of cardstock then coloured both before cutting out and layering it on top of the first images.  I covered both of the flower heads in glossy accents to give them a super shine.
