pocket card

Had another great crafting day last week with Karen and Alisha. Worked on cards with pockets on the front a great idea for making a card to include tickets or vouchers as a pressie.
Thoroughly enjoyed making this card and using a stamp for a background technique.
Not sure who this card is for yet, but am sure it is one style I'll reuse again and again;)

a few recent crafting times

Here are some tags I made recently. These are just really experimenting with new stamps and different techniques.

A friend was really generous recently and gave a sizzix texture boutique embossing machine. I've had fun making her a thank-you card, and Ioana dn her friend have loved making mother's day cards with it too!

Mother's Day gift

For the first time in many a year ;) I made part of my Mum's mother's day things. I made her card and also decopatched a trinket box too.
I also gave her a fridge magnet I made from a fragment and alcohol inks, but I forgot to take a photo of it...

Tim Holtz day part 2

Here is another photo without  the 'modern art' ;)
The middle card used perfect pearls for stamping, and I've added a metal charm which has been embossed with distressed embossing powder for a rusty effect.

Tim Holtz Thursday craft day

On Thursday I went round to Kaz's with Alisha for some crafting from our new Tim Holtz book, 'Compendium of Curiosities'. Kaz's craft room is like a fully stocked craft shop!Tried out lots of techniques including a jet of air and alcohol inks! (Bright 'splodge's' below middle)
This turned out most like modern art, both Luke and Ion thought this was the best one....not sure;)

I think I like effect of the mask (top right corner)best, along with the batik embossing (bottom right).
Enjoyed also making the alcohol inks on the fragment.
A great day!
