More Show Stuff!

Here are the pics of the two new stamp plates for the show on Thursday.  It's a good thing I don't rely on my photography skills for a living, huh?!  A little wonky, but you get the idea.  The large solid floral stamp in the top left hand corner is worth the price of the multi buy alone!  I could have used that one for practically every card and still not run out of ideas for it.  It is truly my favourite as .....you can see below.
Just to tease you a bit though, I have something planned for one of tomorrows demos that is really different.  You are going to think that I have absolutely lost the plot!  I am hoping it will shock (maybe a little) and delight (maybe a lot) all who watch.  I'm not going to give any details (hopefully so you will have to watch!) but I will post the card after the show so you can get a good look at it.  Kind of like the ribbon ruffling from a few posts back, I am hoping to have all of England doing this after they see it!  Ambitious I know, but everyone needs a goal, right?!
Enough said on that, but I do want to say quite a few people left comments about the paper roses. I just want to let everyone know that you can find a tutorial on the paper roses that were on my card on the last post on Maria Holder's blog.  She has a lovely tutorial on her blog  (so well written that I was able to learn to do them from it alone) which you can get to by clicking on it on my sidebar.  It is called Imagine, Create , Inspire.  While I would love to take the credit for these (as they are my favourite new addition to most of my cards), it is Maria that has come up with the idea and put it into an easy to follow tutorial form. 
Remember, this is a new post and more chances at that candy if you leave comments.  All for now, Sue x

Loved the show - I don't have many flowers in my garden, so will have to raid my Mum's! I can't wait to try the press flower thing, wow.

themessycraftroom said...

wow Sue thank goodness my record button worked. Just loved your fantastic show and those wonderful techneques. On the hunt for some flowers to try the squished flowers card. Blown away by card you made it was lovely. Can't wait for my stamps to arrive. You really need to make a DVD for us all eager to learn more. I for one would buy it. Thanks for a fab show. x ChristineB

jennifer.campbell said...

I tried the flower technique tonight but without much success I'm afraid., apart from little blue bell shaped flowers , they turned out great!
The other flowers I had in my garden just went to a yucky brown mess, no detail showing at all. I am waiting for my neighbours light to go off before I raid his garden! LOL

Minxy said...

what a cool card, i have that loop punch and would never of thought to thread it..

Sue - said...

Lovely stamps - fantastic show and some gorgeous cards!

Heidi said...

What a great card. It is fantastic.

Lynne said...

saw the show and love the stamp sets. I tried your flower squashing technique some time ago but only got a soggy mess!! Perhaps I should try again with different flowers! All the card samples were beautiful, who would think they could be created from rubber! Best wishes.

Vivien said...
