What A Week.....

Hiya back home after a very busy but fabulous week. Firstly a little jaunt up to Kendal to see all the lovely ladies at The Paper Warehouse for my monthly card making workshop then onto Preston on Friday for another card making workshop at Inspirations. Finishing off yesterday in Kidderminster for a Trimcraft Demo at The Range.
So I thought Id show a few photos of some of the card designs we've been making.
 This is one of the Inspirations designs. I have used IndigoBlu stamps along with Kaisercraft papers for the 365 days collection. This one is the Anenome Corner.
Here I've used the amazing tulip from the Nottingham Lace set. This tulip is going in my all time favourites list. It was stamped on all three panels then stamped again onto extra paper and layered over with some petals and a leaf cut away to give much more effect.
 
Now we have one from The Paper Warehouse class
Again I've used the  Nottingham Lace Set with a bit of inking with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and doing my favourite masking technique.
 
To finish off for now this is a card made for my Trimcraft demo using the beautiful Santoro Mirabelle Collection papers. The butterflies were cut out of the 12 x 12 paper and the butterflies are all glittery. I punched around the backing paper with a Martha Stewart set and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I used a Kaisercraft Crackle Stamp for the background. This card has had a lot of people oohing and aaarhing over it at the demos.
 
A final thank you goes to The Paper Warehouse Team and the Inspirations Team for their hospitality. I always have such a great time at both of these shops and look forward to my return visits there, which are....
The Paper Warehouse on 22nd May for another card making workshop and the 5th June for a Jones Craft Demo at Inspirations.
