Back in Stock...

Happy Wednesday,

Its the last Wednesday of the month so its my local workshop today at Crafty Corner in Breedon Priory I haven't seen the ladies for 6 weeks as last months was early and I like everyone else, have been waiting for the shaped media plates to come back in stock! Really looking forward to it!  I am planning to extend the monthly workshops next year and will be doing one in the west midlands form November monthly as well more details to follow.

I thought I would share the second card I  made using the same products as yesterday ( sorry for the snow globe Brenda, Myra et all) Especially as this background is one of the techniques we will be using in today's workshop!

I stared by making the central piece using the round media plate and the resist technique where I remover ink from the plate using stamps that's have been inked with perfect medium.  I again used the tree and snowflakes form my winter trees set and the Izink Dye inks in ultramarine, south seas and Night.

I then added this to a  die cut snow globe made with an acetate front and a shaker card back.  Hopefully you can see the glitter jewels I used in the picture.  I added the die cut deer that were left form yesterdays card.
I placed this on an embossed card (using a sneak peak from my new range of Christmas embossing folders)

I added a messy bow of white seam binding and some metallic linx finishing with a crystal snowflake from Craft Consortium.

    Not usually a snowglobe fan but you have shown them to great effect. Glad you explained it was a shaker card as I thought you'd got some fluff trapped in the acetate lol! Fab card and have a great time with the gals at Breedon today.

  20. hi John, so interesting how the same dies can look so different love from Jackie xx

  21. Another great card John.
    I am not a lover of the Snow Globe Die but you have made it work.
    I might have a go using just a circle frame.
    Hope you have a fantastic day with your fans.

  25. Hi John, Lovely card again,and can't wait to get the plates hopefully very soon now.Have a good day and stay healthy and happy.Lots of Love Barbara D xxx

  26. Hello John,
    Another lovely card! Now I feel bad about saying I didn't like shaker cards! I can't explain why but it's probably because of the plastic cups or acetate! The scene in your globe is gorgeous! I'd just use a circle Die - that's the only difference!
    Love Myra xx

  27. Hello John,
    It's a gorgeous card today and if I squint I only see the top of the globe!!! Oh, we are a miserable lot, but you can get your own back in November (although Myra won't be there).

  29. Hi John
    Another stunner today. Wish we had a card shop in or around Oxfordshire that you could demo at.

  30. Hi John Lovely card the colours are gorgeous the winter trees stamp is beautiful I like the snow globe

  31. Sorry about the globe John but love the rest of the card. As Myra and Patricia said would probably just use circle dies. Love the background etc., hope you enjoyed your day. Take carexxx

  32. John i absolutely love the snow globe from yesterday and today.
    This looks beautiful with those colours and the fabulous deer and bow.
    I definately need to get that embossing folder, just love it and the card.
