Creative Stamping 31 - We Love Music

Each time the magazine stamps come out I have to find new ideas to do with them. Last time we looked at using the metallic gilding polishes from creative expressions I have used these again on some cards this time as well as using the colour core with the piano but my new product to try out this time was the cosmic shimmer PIXIE POWDERS.

Stampendous Embossing Powders

Inspired by Fran's book o n embossing powder techniques I cam up with the following. Some are better than others and the board I put my oddments on is continually being changed since I'm not happy with it but it does show a few more powder uses at the moment.

These were done after a workshop with Fran a few years ago on using powders so I dug them out to show adaptations of more ideas from her book

Home Decor - Driftwood

This driftwood and MDF shapes from creative expressions is great for decorating either with paints and inks or metallic gilding polishes.
The ideas are inspired by items we saw at the trade show from John and Lisa.

the above are my samples and those below were done at our craft group

Homes from Stampendous and elsewhere

Love the stamp and die sets from Stampendous but I also had a new castle die in so thought an ideal place to put that.

Again there will be more samples in the coming weeks

Hobbies at Home with Woodware stamps etc.

Sewing, knitting, cooking etc., these stamps give a bit of something different and have proved popular.
I also added stencil & die cups from dreamweaver  thinking one needs a cuppa whilst keeping busy.
More work needs doing with these. As with everything at the moment it has been a case of getting a few examples for each workshop before our demo day last Saturday - more will follow

Outdoor and Other Hobbies

First of all - sorry that there's been nothing for last 2 weeks but we have been without the internet. You realise how much you rely on it - even if you only use it for certain things as I do!

This workshop started with the Woodware walking boots the progressed to using the Leabiliites die for the rucksac and shoes after which I looked at other new dies like the musical instruments. In most of the cards I have used the metallic gilding polishes from creative expressions again  to try to get maximum use out if them.
