Well it is a couple of weeks since my last post. I spent a long weekend with my best friend and her family for Easter and did manage to get some crafting in with my 9 year old Godson. We did some Decopatch, although we did not have the right glue I do not think our attempts were too bad. Matthew did a Dinosaur and I did a Teddy Bear.

Well let's us start with catching up on some of the cards I made last weekend which got finished yesterday. The first was made using dies from Tattered Lace (Trio of Owls and Lacy Daisy). The background was embossed on Centura Pearl cardstock using the free embossing folder which came with the eBosser. I then inked this with Espresso Adirondack. The trellis was a remnant left over from a previous card and is a Spellbinders die. This was made for a member of the Westdale Trefoil Guild who will be celebrating her 70th birthday next month.

As a result of Barbara Gray's blog 'One day at a time' I decided to have a go at the gilding flakes and double sided adhesive technique. Although I do not have the allium stamps, I decided to use the large landscape and the boy fishing stamps. I started by stamping the large landscape on the A6 double sided adhesive and then added the image of the boy fishing. I then covered this side with a piece of A6 acetate before adding the variegated green gilding flakes to the back. I then mounted this on some pale brown and brown cardstock before mounting on a piece of Theuva card which I used stonewashed Adirondack and a blending tool to add some colour. I then decided to have a go at some heat embossing and added some reeds and a poppy. This wasn't as successful as I didn't make sure that all the loose bits of embossing powder had gone. I then decided to have a go at the Gelli Plate and added the stamps from the Birdhouse stamp kit.

Well I should have wrote something on this blog last weekend. Mum phoned me on the Friday and asked if it was too late for me to make a card for my Grandmas's 92nd birthday, of course I send no. So last Saturday was spent making the card. I used the Tonic Daisy punch, Core d'inations card stock, mirror card, Spellbinders trellis die, toppers from the Hunkydory Shimmering Watercolours kit and some Gems.
