Workshop Cards

Hi everyone and thanks for visiting again if you are stopping by this Saturday evening :) As promised, here is my most recent set of workshop cards, with links to some products as well.

I have had lots of questions this month about particular products, so I now have a page set up with links to the things I use most, so you can find details of products and their names should you wish to purchase your own.  Please refer to my Links to Products page for more info on each card.

The first one to share is a Christmas one made with a Joanna Sheen stamp I have had for ages but I can no longer find - if you want one please get in touch and see if Joanna has any more?

I coloured this stamp with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, and no blending, adding glitter for sparkle
the other products are listed on the Links page.

Used chipped sapphire TH distress ink for the poinsettia's and for stenciling inside the oval with a distress tool.

The snowy cloud papers are from Craft Creations and Marianne dies for the ivy..

The next card is using a firm favourite from Stampin Up called Dasher - there are similar images from other stamp companies using  reindeer so keep a look out if you don't want to wait around for Stampin up from eBay or other sites.

the Snowflakes are old Spellbinders Create a Flake 1 or 2,  I cant remember but again there are lots of snowflake dies on the market, so easy to find gorgeous designs, Papermania embossing folder and vintage signage stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms.

The inside of the card finished to match...

This next card has an autumnal feel to it. Lots of inking and stamping using muted colours. The papers are from Craft Creations which you can find on the Links Page, and the Pearls are from Cottage Crafts

This is a very old stamp from Inkadinkado which I can no longer find, but there are lots of similar stamps out there which would suit this project. Used Tea Dye TH Distress ink and Memento Teal Zeal ink.

The inside of the card:

A side on view to show the layers.

This card is my last wedding one for 2013, in a classy navy and white colour combo, so good for winter weddings, with a bit of sparkle and a handmade flower.
We got very blue inky hands making the flower but it was all worth it!

The stamp is from Stamping Bella's uptown girls range and you can find it here at Dies to Die for or at Stamping Bella direct. The inside of the easel card was partially embossed and the sentiment is a Magnolia Tilda one from a couple of years ago.

A close-up of the flowers we made:

Last but not least I am thrilled to announce that I have permission to use digi artwork from Nitwit Collections for workshops - as with all digi images and products, they are copyright protected and cannot be shared without the express permission of the artist.
I have been using Nitwit products for a while, so am really excited to be able to share these gorgeous designs with other crafters and would like to thank them for allowing me to do so!

The card we created today using the Garden Fairies Collection available to purchase here:

Aren't the papers soooo pretty!?

Great images which are easy to shape and layer, and here is the finished card:

That's all from me for the moment, I am indulging in all things Christmas, and hope you will pop back soon.

Details of any remaining workshops for 2013 are on the workshop page just under the blog headings, and if you would like to come along please book in advance as the Christmas workshops in October and November fill up quickly.  As always, any comments are appreciated and if you want to ask anything please leave me a comment or email me at

Keep Crafting!

  1. Hi Jess,
