Tram Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

I will be making a return to Crafty Company in Fleetwood for Tram Sunday which is a big Fun Day held throughout Fleetwood.  I love this event and this will be the second day I am here with the love Sandra and Kieron.

I thought Id show a card form my Monday shows today (tomorrow) Im stepping into Sue Wilson's shoes and taking over the 2 hour double bill at 5pm tomorrow.  I have at least 6 demos planned so there is loads to share with everyone!

Todays card focuses on the Sweet Leaves stamp to die for that matches the Gillian farmers and tags die.  I stamped the stamp four times and cut them out with the matching die.  Next I folded the cut shapes cutting into them and folding them to make four fans altho attach together to re make the centre.  I will be demoing a similar technique on the shows so tune in if you are, like me, a visual learner lol
I stamped the stamp randomly over a piece of card for my card base and then cut the base using the Atlas mini triplet.  I slotted the outline die over the card so that it just cut the bottom ( again really hard to explain) and added black microbeads in the gaps ( after adding double sided adhesive behind)

A Twist of black ribbon and thread and a bow form striped ribbon ( from my stash) matts and layers black pearls and finished.

  25. Like the idea of this design, John, but the centre piece gets a bit lost for me. Perhaps it needed a black "base".
    Looking forward to the show tomorrow.

  31. Hi John, I hope your demo day has gone brilliantly. Your card is stunning !!

  32. Hi John. Not too sure about todays card which I find a bit too busy and confused. There are bits on it, like the border, which are nice though. Sorry, but you can't please all of the people all of the time.


  33. Eh up John
    A little busy for me too as my eyes are darting all over the top of it but love the "rosette" in the centre.
    Looking forward to the shows.
