Where is the crafting?

With a title like ‘Veiws from the Craft Room you are probably wondering where the crafting comes in.  Well, at the moment every available spare moment is being taken up making the 200+ Christmas cards we need!  There is a lot of die cutting, stamping, embossing, distressing and gluing going on but not much to show you.  So I have decided to show you a card I made last year which is one of my favourites. 

The flowers are made using the MEDIUM FLOWER HEAD 0701072Aand the LARGE FLOWER HEAD 701071Astamps from Dimension Stamps.


I stamped the two flower head stamps onto velum which I had coloured by blending pink ink onto it.  I then decorated the flowers by stamping a swirl pattern on in pink and highlighting with crystal glitter.  I then made up the flowers, two large and one medium.

Roy from Dimension Stamps has made a video which will show you how to make the flowers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W3OsWLJ5Zg
The box and tag for the card.

I used some vintage card from my stash to make and easel card base and cut the mats from contrasting card using my CraftRobo.  I inked the edges in pink then attached to my card.  I then arranged the flowers on the card and used a leaf stamp to put in the green leaves.  I then added some gems to look like dew drops and used peel offs for the greetings.





I have been meaning to make another one but to date this is the only one I have done.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
