NEC Blues...

Good morning/afternoon Facebookers! We're back after a lovely break away for the bank holiday weekend. Had a fantastic few days on the north Yorkshire coast at Whitby.

The weather was warm and sunny and just perfect! Back to work this morning with a bump, to find out that ICHF the organisers of Hobbycrafts at the NEC have us by the legal short and curlies and wont allow us to cancel our stand for November. Or if we do, we still have to pay! So it looks as though we have no choice but to go and try and cover costs as much as possible! we guess we'd better start looking at some in-expensive hotels to stay in. 


Oh well, looks like it's beans on toast for tea!

Men's Collage Rub Ons

A fantastic easy to use rub on set, complete with rubbing stick. The collection contains perfect images for men's card making projects, scrap book pages or mixed media canvases, but would also be perfect for art journals too!

For the sample above I've used the rub ons and the Pensive Tickets and a sheet from our Man About Town 6x6 paperstack! Grab these while you can as they're limited stock!

Steampunk Birthday

This is a 6x6 card made from the Steam Punk Emporium die cut topper set from Kraftyhands. I've created the backing panels using two embossing folders, the cogs from Darice and the burlap folder from Tim Holtz. Both use Core'dinations papers, sanded to give it them a distressed look. I've also added some Vintage Photo distress ink to age it a little. 
The cogs are a Tim Holtz Sizzix die cut from blue and gold mirri board and then sanded to distress them too. I spritzed the card with Pool & Caramel Adirondack alcohol ink for a splatter effect and then added Ranger Glossy Accents to finish. The clock brad is from Stampin' Up!

Amethyst (Love & Hope)

This 6x6 card is made from a fantastic set of toppers called "Love & Hope" the set contains 6 circle medalion style toppers and 6 female characters with precious stone names. This one is called "Amethyst". Click here for details!
I've used a couple of dies to add texture and a little dimension, but to be honest it didn't really need that much. This is a case of less is more!

Feedback on the show was really encouraging and we're so glad the organisers of the show have decided to make it a bi-annual event, the next show planned for 8th February 2015!
