Oh dear!!! I seem to be getting worse at this blogging malarkey instead of better!! I know I keep saying this but the days just seem to keep flying past!! I can hardly believe that in a few days time I shall be another year older - SCARY!!!
I must just say thank you to all the lovely ladies who were on my class yesterday at The Craft Barn - you were all fantastic and your creations looked wonderful :) I must say an extra special thank you to Sharon who had set up for me and whizzed everything away for me at the end of the class too.
This is one of the cards that we made on the class using Imagination Crafts Butterflies and Daisies stencil along with their Sparkle Gel some Distress inkpads, Copics and Mica powders. I have really got into using stencils just recently - not only combining them with rubber stamps but also finding ways to make lovely scenes with them as well. It's amazing what can be achieved with them.
Imagination Crafts do so many beautiful stencils that can be mixed and matched to create some wonderful cards - I used their Apple Blossom stencil to create some interest at the base of the daisies and The Crafter's Workshop Mini Cherry Blossom stencil to put in some dainty tendrils around the butterflies.
I'm afraid that I wasn't able to come away from The Craft Barn empty handed as they have just begun stocking the wonderful Lavinia stamps!!! I can't tell you how delighted I am about this as I just love these stamps and I now have the 'perfect excuse' to play with them!! So watch this space as I plan on doing a class with them at The Craft Barn next year sometime :)
