Still on the Illusion….

I’m kinda stuck on Day 3 here, but loving it.  My visitors have deserted me and now instead of cleaning the house after camping, working etc I am having some fun in my crafty space (wink).  So today it’s another Optical Illusion and this one is masking, one of my fave techniques, I did do a little embellishing though and guess what?  It’s gold, I know I know, but it’s addictive.

I say I’ll be back real soon with another Card Class installment so until then, have a great one!


Other Supplies:  Prima Wood Veneer – Birds & Butterflies. Gold sequins.

Bluebells and a chance to Save at AnnaBelle Stamps!

This week at AnnaBelle Stamps we are featuring Sentimental Bluebells…   my card does not have any bluebells at all, but I have embossed and die cut this fabulous label from the set.  Actually this card looks absolutely nothing like what I set out to make, go figure.

And because it’s our Friday Feature stamp set it’s been reduced by 20% for the next week, yay!

It’s a Special Craft Dash video!

Well why not, I had the camera set up anyway so thought I would film myself making my craft dash card.  Nothing fancy schmancy, but it does make a real difference when the clock is on, the pressure is on lol.  Anyhoo, no editing and my total time was 9 mins 50 secs.  Not bad, considering some cards take me days to make.  I hope you are having a great day, it’s STILL raining here, I’ve forgotten what colour the sky is, maybe I’d better look it up on Wiki.
