Since I've been bad and haven't had a chance to update the blog candy for the next contest, I thought I'd better post something. So here are a few more of the samples from the show on Monday. There were several that didn't get shown so I thought I'd stick them up here in case anyone who purchased the stamp sets might want to see them. The first one is the only real Christmassy sample that I did. It used the more traditional colours from the paperpack on the show. I cut the snowflakes from a Spellbinders die that I had and I used white gloss card for them to give them a real shiny look. The second card I had a bit of fun with too. I cut the paper from the paperpack into a few long strips and folded it accordian style to create a ruffle look around my nestibility. Do you recall the faux suede technique from my wine stamp show? Well the two black flowers on the card were made using card that I turned into faux suede. The picture doesn't do them justice, they are so soft to touch though.
The third card is one of my favs. I just love this paper with it's little circles, so much fun! It just goes with everything too. I had a little play with these two guys below, added a flower made from the new paper, some ribbon, nestibilities, pearl embellishments and punches to complete the card.
This last card is the sample from the shaving cream technique demo I did. What fun it is to do! If you have never had a go at this technique and don't know where to start, let me know. I would be willing to work up a step by step tutorial if enough people haven't seen this before. We will have men everywhere across England hiding their shave cream from us crafters! Be afraid, be very afraid men!
Well I am hoping that this will buy me a few more days so I can get a proper blog candy contest prize together that is suitable for the next contest that will be drawn when we reach the magical number of 1000 followers! Remember, you still get an extra entry into the contest when you leave me a comment so that I know you have stopped by the blog. Happy crafting, Sue x
