I have had a very quite crafting time for the past few months. I in the autumn I went to a quilting class locally and had fun, so I made a quilt on my own using the same method as I had learnt.
All made from fabric that I had in my stash!
I do like the strip method, but I suppose I should try something else.
But then I have been cheating…
I have made four seat pads that have been stamped and then stitched with a zigzag to make them look quilted. There are great for extra seating or taking outside to add to garden chairs and can just be thrown in the washing machine.
Here I am again with another card for traveling across the miles.
For this card I have used the Stampendous Folk Tree metal stencil and the double glitter technique. I seem to be rather fond of this technique at the moment you will find step by step photographs in this post Things that go Bump here is the Dreamweaver video again too
I have stamped and embossed with the Stampendous Winter Wonderland powder, it is a lovely white powder with silver glitter in it. I have stamped on the black Textura card which you can see on this solid stamp, then punched him out.
For the background I have used the new Holly Scrolls metal stencil designed by Fran of Stampendous, I have pressure embossed with my Sizzix machine on black and white Textura card.
and here I have a very simple card, that would make a great quick Christmas card if you like to bulk make them.
The stencil is one of the new ones designed by Fran from Stampendous. It is called Holly Scroll. It has been pressure embossed through a Sizzix machine.
When embossing metal stencils through a machine but the stencil on the thick platform so that you have no chance of distorting it, then card, the Rubber Mat and 2 plates (I keep 2 new plates just for my stencils so that I am sure that they will not damage them)
