We've had hailstones today! Apparently there has been a small snowfall up in the Highlands too. That Indian summer everyone was raving about on TV... missed us completely. No wonder I headed for the workspace ... I'll leave the rainstorms to those hardier than me!!!
This is the first card we made at class this week - a twisted easel. The base, topper, stopper, punched edge strip are in cream pearlescent cardstock. All the rest of the materials are from Stampin' Up.
Close up of topper - the flower centres are picked out with little colour-co-ordinated gems.
The stopper is stamped with a really fab stamp from SU called Curvy Verses.
The second card really tested my skills in cutting with a craft knife - that cut out square in the middle was the very devil to get right.
I forget what you call this style of card but it works by pulling the tab at the back so that the front stands up. As it folds flat it is fine for posting.
You can get a better view of the mechanism from this back shot. The base of this card is made from white cardstock, decorated with a SU paper. The flower is punched from co-ordinating DPs and the greeting is stamped onto pearlescent card.
Further to yesterday's post, I've now got all my Christmas stash together and sorted. After seeing Di's neat veg trolley storage yesterday, I had decided that something similar would be ideal, mentioned it to the EM who went off in search of one for me. He didn't find a veg trolley but but did come home with this great drawer set, on wheels, a reduced bargain in Wilkinsons, which makes the perfect storage for all that Christmas stash. The drawers are catagorised into (1) Stamps, (2) Paper & Card and (3) Embellishments & Die-cuts. There's a fourth drawer, the top one, which now houses most of my growing punch collection - I had in mind a different form of storage for them too, but the new drawer set provided the ideal answer. As it is on wheels the storage can be pulled out when I'm using it and wheeled away and tucked out of sight when not - perfect :)
Right, I'm off for a cuppa and to watch Pointless - my afternoon addiction :) I'll be back later to actually do some crafting - there's all those Christmas projects to get on with.
