SA Crafty 3sum!
No you haven't stumbled onto the wrong web page with the header I'm demoing all weekend at Daisies Jewels and Crafts in Coventry with Hels Sherriden and Pauline Wheeler, therefore the owner Wendy has called the event a crafty 3sum!
I thought you might like to see a couple of the projects I will be demoing over the weekend as well as my usual die fest and playing with Cosmic Shimmer. If you are in the area pop in and say hi!
This first card is made using both the classic and striped weaving dies from Sue's latest release and the Charming Hearts corner, a beautiful die with stunning detail that can make a card all on its own! The design is symmetrical as well as asymmetrical as you can clip the flourishes away to make it into a different pattern. I have done this with the larger ornamental corner for a demo on Create and craft next week, tune in if you want to see how!?! The centre heart is stamped using my new Flower Hearts elements set and em,based in detail silver embossing powder.
The second card, believe it or not, is made using the waste from making the first! I needed 4 of the corners and so I cut them laid out in a pattern to make the frame around the stamped sentiment. I added a waste piece of Creative Expressions double sided adhesive sheet behind, stuck ti a piece of vintage silver foundation card and added in 4 of the corners cut from Coconut white card. I then covered the aperture in diamond sprinkles which adds a lovely shine to the piece in real life! Finally a few mats of the silver, lilac and coconut white and a card bank made by folding a piece of A4 card in half and a simple (almost free as its made with scrap) card is finished.
Here's a shot of the two... taken in my cart room so if you look closely you can see one of the Creative expressions Big Boy storage units behind along with my collection of chalk paint!
It would be great to see as many of my wonderful blog family who can make it over the weekend, click HERE for details on daisies!
