Cracked Glass with Style

On Friday evening I attended one of  Debbie's classes ( my sideline ). We made two fantastic cards with the cracked Glass technique, I enjoy having time to just sit and make some cards especially when you have someone teaching you for a change.  The first card we have used a new stamp set called Elements of Style and needless to say it is now on my wish list.

Ink: Marina Mist, Versamark
Punch:1" Circle punch,
Other: Silver Hodgepodge, Silver Brads, Marina Mist 5/8" Grosgrain,

Chocolate Treat Holder or

Over the weekend I have had some time to just sit and craft so I made a couple of quick little Treat holders, I have used part of a brown paper bag in the first one for the insert which would hold a chocolate treat, I have punched out the snowflake and attached it to the front with a dimensional.

The second one I have clear embossed the front then layered it onto Old Olive, in this one I added some extra Real Red card to form a pocket then stamped a piece of Whisper white and attached it, this one would be ideal for a gift card or even some cash, the front is clear embossed.

Stamp Set: Season of Joy
Ink: Old Olive Real Red, Versamark
Cardstock: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White
Other: Clear Embossing Powder, 3/4" Circle Punch,. Sticky Strip,
Heat Tool, Dimensionals

My Stampin Studio & Catalogue Launch

Yesterday I had my Catalogue Launch in my "Stampin Studio". This was built for my Daughter and her Partner when they had my Grand Daughter 3 years ago, then when they shifted out last year and my older daughter moved 18months ago, 3 weeks ago she shifted out so at last I have my "Stampin Studio" and I love it.

Here it is
Some nice new cupboards and a lovely bottle of wine

A  nice new table

At the moment I am using my stand for the jug this is where a white pantry will go
to store all those lovely stamp sets

My Display with some gorgeous flowers
The make and takes
A couple of the ladies eagerly looking through the new Catalogue
and a special Visitor who hopped in
Thank you to the Ladies who made my Catalogue Launch so special and of course Karen, Judy and Debbie who came and also made my day very special what a fabulous team I belong to.
