My brother's Birhday

Hi all. What lovely weather we are having, sad its gone all cloudy at the moment. They say rain is coming hope not as we have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend coming up.

Made two cards one is on the same lines as I did before on Carol Cockbain Class it was for my sister-in-law as I missed her birthday didn't realise it was day after Peter my other half. Its the Vase stencil with white pearl embossing paste and coloured in with cosmic shimmers and on the side is a lovely Martha Stewart punch and a little butterfly. Hope you like it.

The other one was for my brother Kevin he is a Plumber and you know what builders are like well it was for a laugh. Kevin's Birthday was on St. Georges day I usually make cards that have a Patriotic theme but I think I've exhausted that one. I made one of those folding cards using  the Tim Holtz papers from his stack they are gorgeous so right for men cards. As you can see I cuttle bugged the different pieces of the card, I did use the copics for colouring and also the new distress inks for the papers and edges of the nesties. I really like the new colours of the distress inks. The stamps are the Murray and Ethel ones from Creative Expressions.

Hope you like them and I do appreciate the comments so thank you.
Love to all and Happiness.

Class at the Craft Barn with Carol Cockbain.

Had a lovely day at the Craftbarn with Carol Cockbain and her lovely sister Cheryl. We made two lovely cards int he morning with Dreamweaver Stencils. The Vase and flowers and Pear.
The Vase with the flowers were supposed to have been done with White paste but you know me got it wrong and put Gold paste so I had to put gold leaf on the flowers but it turned out really well. The second one was with the Pear stencil and we put little beads on it and that turned out really nice too.

In the afternoon we had two more stencils one was the Kimono and that had a flower stencil put over the top, I did this one with white paste so that I could colour the flowers in with Cosmic shimmers. The other one was 3 little cats and they had little beads on them also, but unfortunately some of mine dropped off!!. Well a good day was had,
Hope you like them. Lots of Love
