Quick Thursday...

Happy Thursday,

Today will see me finishing off my demo pieces and prepping for The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show at Alexandra Palace this weekend.  If you are coming along I will be demoing on the Creative Expressions stand both days as well as doing 2 demo's each day in the demo area, pop and say hi!

I thought Id show a card today that is one of the demo pieces I will be prepping.  As I am sue you all know by now I love the new Ornate pierced noble dies they make such beautiful cards on their own and are perfect for making batch cards.  This is one of the techniques I will be showing people who attend over the weekend.



Hard to believe but this takes just 2 sheets of foundation card which is something of  record for me as I love to use multi layers as I am sure you all know by now!

Sue Wilson will be demonstrating on the Rubbernecker stand as I will be joining Julia Watts, Phill Martin and Lisa Horton on the CE stand.  Tracey Laughton (who I am am sure you have all heard me mention) will be running a Make and Take as well so there is loads to see and do I can't wait to get started on what should be a really fun weekend.

Ingredients:
Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson - Noble Ornate pierced Square die set
Lilac & Milk foundation card
CE Double sided adhesive sheets
Iced Snow
Decadent Denim Mica
Orchid satin ribbon

Back tomorrow with a sneak peak at some new stamp designs I have done that will be launched at the show, there is also a new Daisy variation as everyone seemed to love the daisies!

Enjoy...

  7. Lovely card-very Art Deco style. I wish I could make it to Ally Pally one time but it would mean at least one nights stay, if not two due to the distance/times.

  22. Hi John
    Another stunning card, using the Nobles set of dies. I'm looking forward to seeing how you do the rectangle ones John. The coloured card doesn't seem wide enough to do these. Unless your cutting out two and sticking them together.
