Catchup time

Wow, has it really been 3 weeks since I last posted something here. Yes it has been!!!
Been busy, busy, busy though. My last "sticky post" about the crop. Well it went really well and "quite a few pennies" were raised for Arthritus Care. The fund raising is still on-going of course and another crop is planned for June. All details can still be read about on Karen's Facebook page. Also the vid of that scary (for Karen) abseil from the Forth Road Bridge.

I have made a few cards as well as a couple of other crafty bits.
Over at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack there are a few groups dedicated to different types of crafts. Cardmaking, scrapping, altered art etc. It's designed to push one into the realms never visited before, expanding and sharing knowledge among the "villagers".
I have the honour and pleasure of being one of the moderators in the cardmaking group.
We have been challenging the ladies to join us in making cards using different folds. There are so many out there, it's a shame not to try them at least once.
1st up was the Diagonal Double Pocket Card as featured by Terry

I used a 12"x12" piece of BoBunny double sided paper for the actual card.

DCVW and core-dinations for the tags.

The core-dinations was embossed and sanded.

matching twine on the tags.

flowers, lace, brads etc from stash

Daisy and Dandelion stamp

2nd was my Easel Card

Image is from Smeared Ink coloured with pencils and blended with mineral oil. The sentiment is SU! The flowers are made from lace, coloured with promarkers and buttons from stash. The papers were given to me, so no idea on origin. The shapes are freebies from LOTV

3rd card was Joyce's Tent Card
Docrafts and Studio G stamps stamped with memento ink

Coloured with promarkers

Glossy and crackle accents to highlight

Sentiment stamped with stazon onto vellum

Papers/cardstock/gems/buttons/ribbon/flower/brad from stash

Aperture cut with craft knife

The one for this week is a slider card

Soot stamped front using Smeared Ink stamps, Holy City set.

The owl is a button from stash attached with a jump ring.


The ghost is a stamp from Inkadoo.

I "reverse paper pieced" the ghost.

I cut the ghost out from the central card bits (I used thickish paper as I needed 3 layers here) and stuck the white vellum between.

More interesting folds are planned. Stay tuned. Or better still come visit and join in.
