Lovely As A Tree

"Oh what fun it is to stamp ..."
My mornings work today was playing with making cloud shapes. I think I got it right with the green one and the last one, where the trees are by the water. In the last one I tore the paper to make the cloud shape stencil. This gave the clouds a softer edge.
I used the aqua brushes to wash the land and water on, and the Lovely As A Tree stamp set.

... And here are some of the cards my ladies made at a workshop I held demonstrating the ink sponging technique.

Cat Punch Card

There are so many lovely stamp and cutting die bundles in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalogue. I made this card with the cat punch and a cutting die from the new Holiday Catalogue, for a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Team challenge. I didn't have the cat stamp so I had to draw the cat face. The colour is Peekaboo Peach which goes well with the theme of the card.

Successful Garage Sale

I enjoyed myself at the St Margaret's Garage Sale. I sold a worthwhile amount, but it was connecting with people, and being introduced to a few more lovely ladies, that was the highlight. At each stall I've had, different things have sold well. The things people liked the most this time, were the clutch bags and the cake boxes, which didn't sell well at the other events.

It's On Again

I'll be having a stall again selling some of my Stampin' Up! handcrafts. 
Stop and have a chat, or enjoy a coffee and scones.
Hope to see you there.
