Messy crafty days :)

Today has been a fabulous day in my crafty world, I have two bargain shows on Monday 27th May in the Mr Mayhem weekend event and they involve stamps, gilding flakes, embossing powder and tons more!

Thought I’d share some sneak peeks of my planned demos (if the stock is there long enough!)

So first up is one which we don’t have a huge amount of stock of so if you want this one you’ll have to be quick!!

I’m going to be gilding a doily and making this card, the stamped image has been coloured with promarkers in lovely soft colours that tone with the gilding flakes before being matted onto the fabulous duo double sided backgrounds also on the show 🙂


Next is a card made using the floral borders stamps which I’ve used on the satin paperstock and doily, these were heat embossed to add extra pizazz, then I used the fab retro alphabet to add a sentiment.


I’ll also be demonstrating the lovely tassels and more stamps in rich purples and golds. To create the background I sprinkled a combination of two embossing powders onto the design that had been stamped with versa mark and then distressed it with dusty concord ink. I sprinkled the rest of the mixed powders over a second piece of distressed card for matting and layering before stamping the image and colouring with promarkers.


The last sneak peek for today is for the summer smiles stamp set, the duo background has been over stamped with a background stamp from the kit and embossed in peach Melba embossing powder. I stamped the image with a mix of rusty hinge and vintage photo and then coloured with promarkers. The floral decoration is created using the second tattered lace floral embellishment die.


I hope you like these cards, join me to see them in action on Monday at 2pm and 7pm 🙂
