Workshop cards........a busy day indeed!

Hello fellow bloggers and crafters, its long overdue this post but the last week has been mental to say the least, I am chasing my tail but this weekend will be a bit quieter thank goodness.
Lot of cards to post when I have gone through the photos, but here are the first three from this weekend just gone by: (will pop back tomorrow with closeup pics and links)

the first is a love themed  6 x 6 card made with a Lili of the Valley stamp you can find here
the papers are from Craft Creations
the heart was cut using chipboard with a cuttlebug heart die and then painted with Picket fence TH crackle paint and distressed using aged mahogany
the punch is a Martha Stewart one, the daisy and leaves are EK success punches
oh, and the sentiment comes with the image stamp

some close up photos of the inside of the card...

... and the detail on the front so you can see the layers and inked punched edges etc..

the next card is a decoupage card, and yes there is a lot of cutting, but the shapes are nice and easy so its very satisfying - lots of layers on this one
the image is from Craft Creations and the sentiment die cut is from spellbinders
the punch used is a Martha Stewart one which I use A LOT  and cant recommend it as one of my 
have - to - have ones (don't we say that about all craft stash!?)
the sentiment was heat embossed and is from a set made by Hobby Art Ltd

Last but not least, is one of my favourite fairy cards so far this year, because it came out looking a bit Victorian and although that wasn't entirely the intention, I really like the way it turned out!

The fairy is called Canterbury Bell and the stamps are from Crafters Companion
The Papers are from Bearly Mine Designs which you can find here and its called Flower Delight and the punched water is a Fiskars Punch an old blue one
The circular 'doily' die cut is a die from MFT - My Favourite things

Apart from the decoupage, the stamped cards are all coloured with twinkling H2O's


  1. All are beautiful Jess but my fave is the fairy one (because it is blue lol) & I love the crackled heart on the 1st one!!

  2. Stunning cards as always Jess
