Custom Tee pretty in pink

I had a lot of Birthday cards to make this month,
and I had lots of fun with the T-shirt stamp set Custom Tee

You really can "custom" the card to "fit" the recipient
and it won't get misshapen or shrink in the wash......hopefully!





My photography ain't great, and my photo editing needs work too!
Can you spot the deliberate mistake?
Just seeing if you are paying attention lol......

Happy Weekend

Hochanda

I was at the Hochanda Show at the weekend,
Detling, Maidstone.
It was a fabulous craft show, and looks like it will be an annual event.

I met so many lovely people, it was tiring but so much fun.

Here's a link to a short video,
see if you can spot me!

If the link doesn't work,
try going to Kim's blog:

kimfeecrafter.blogspot.co.uk


I shall be back soon!

High Tide

Another lovely swap I received,
using another stamp set I wasn't sure if I needed.....

Rachael Berry
has used it in a way that seems so simple yet effective


I needed a male card......so maybe I do need this set!

Mum and Dad Graffiti

I hope they saw the funny side of these "graffiti" Tee Shirt cards.....
considering they are 85 years young!

Mum is one day older than Dad, so I always try to make
sort of matching cards....



I think the Designer Tee set is so cute,
then I embossed the "wall"
and stamped using various sentiments and colours



I threw in a few "I love you"'s.....we don't say it enough....


I hope they have many more happy returns of the day

Magic Reveal Spinner Card

Firstly, a HUGE thanks to Inkresponsiblyau.blogspot.com.au
for sharing a tutorial on this spectacular card technique

I did this in a recent class.....it isn't/wasn't easy, but I think well worth the effort


Here is one "closed"


then "open"




closed

open





closed

open

the ribbon acts as a "pull" or tag to turn the circle to reveal the image underneath.
I think it is most effective when the first image is quite subtle,
then revealing more drama underneath.

I have the instructions saved on my pc,
so if anyone wants a copy, please just ask here,
or email gillettlesley@gmail.com

Baby Wipe Technique

I did these at a recent class



we made a multi coloured ink pad from a folded baby wipe


this technique suits the dragonfly perfectly


and I left them without sentiments, so I can adapt them when needed.
