Create & Craft show samples

Good Morning!

Wow, yesterday was a hectic day and I just want to take the time to thank you for watching our show (if you tuned in or recorded to watch later on or even caught the late-night repeats). We've had such great feedback from current and new customers and we can't wait to go back on air!

I just wanted to take the time to upload LOTS of the samples we took on the show yesterday. We didn't get chance to show too many of them (and they didn't have enough table-top room for us to display them!) so here they are if you missed them...

These first cards are made using the Cupcakes set - you can purchase the stamp sets to make all these cards via the Create & Craft website HERE

The below cards were made using the Florals set

And these were made using the last stamp set, the Heart Tree

Hope you enjoyed the show and seeing all these samples!

I'll let you know our next date as soon as we have it & I'll hopefully see you soon!

A little tutorial!

Good Afternoon!

I'm back with a card and a little tutorial today!

We were at Whichcraft yesterday at the Doncaster Dome & I was inspired to use only a couple of stamps to make a larger topper image!
Here's the card I've made from the topper I created:

The stamps I've used are:

The swirl from our Shoe stamp set
The bauble from the Christmas Owl stamp set.

First off, I stamped two of the swirls side by side, matching up the ends. (For both the card & this tutorial I've used Gathered Twigs distress ink)

I then stamped baubles from the swirl garland:

I've used promarkers to colour in the baubles and add red dots to the swirls like berries:

And finally filled in with green dots for some more colour!

Then, as you can see on the card above, I've distressed the entire rectangular topper with Gathered Twigs distress ink!

I hope you like it!

See you again soon,
