Spellbound with Spellbinders!

Hi there everyone!

So sorry I have been neglecting my blog once again. I don't think I will ever get the hang of it!

Over the past weekend I have been busy getting ready for my three shows {which were yesterday on Create and Craft} and a show at 7pm on Wednesday 5th October, which will also feature products developed by the ubber talented Tim Holtz. I am absolutely LOVING his products! It's really enjoyable to do something different. 

I've also confirmed today that I will be joining Sara Davies of Crafter's Companion on Sunday at 12-2pm for Tool Shed. So exciting, I haven't seen Sara since before my holiday so It'll be great to catch up. And with any luck Deano will be presenting so it's sure to be a fun show!

I'll be photographing my cards from the Tim Holtz hours as soon as I can and PROMISE that sometime in the next Millennium they will appear here. In the meantime, here's another card I made with the Spellbinders Christmas dies. 

I cut and embossed the main die from patterned paper {I think it's actually Tim Holtz paper - Lost and Found}stencilling through the die with Colorbox Merlot ink before removing, then the frame dies from green Core'dinations cardstock. I also distressed the edges of the papers by sanding and inking with Old Paper Distress ink. The stamp is a very old one I've had for ages, inked in two colours and embossed.

I also cut and embossed the poinsettia and leaved from red and green cardstock. I sanded and shaped the poinsettia and added a few gems. You can just see at the top of the picture I've added a white gel pen frame around the green card.

Well, that's all for now, I promise not to leave it so long next time!
