Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

Saturday Stanpin' Up workshop

What a lovely day we had! Two groups of lovely ladies came to my 'Crazy for Cupcakes' workshop yesterday and created these 3 cards, each using different techniques but using the one stamp set. And you can see how versatile it is, although there was far more that I could have showed them but time never allows!
This is the 'Step fold' card made with Pretty in pink and Close to Cocoa cardstock, Sweet Always DSPs, oval and oval scallop punch. The cakes were coloured using aquabrushes to pick up the colour from inside the ink pad lid after squeezing when closed.
This standard fold A6 card showed how the scallop edge border punch can be used to make a curved scallop edge. So ingenious, yet so simple when you know how! Joanne on ILWS has made a great tutorial on how to do this - and it save sme trying to put it into words!. So why not take a look on this wonderful, friendly and helpful forum.

And a gift card holder. So useful with the internal pocket for you to place your gift, whether it be a £50 note (oh yeah!), gift voucher or what about a lottery ticket for a Christmas pressie?

Here's the inside.

And again!
Thank you to all the ladies who made the day such fun.
Thanks for looking.
