How was your weekend? We worked on the wedding invitations but they are still not finished frustratingly the design keeps changing. We were hoping to visit on Sunday but the snow put us off. This week ahead I will be helping at two Felting Workshops as one was postponed because of the previous snow. I do enjoy these workshops and I am learning a lot. I was thrilled with the pot I made a few weeks ago. It is a lovely fluid craft you are never quite sure how things are going to turn out.
I have been trying to get ahead with my cards again. With this in mind I managed to get the latest issue of Papercraft Essentials Magazine. The free gift was a Kinetic Creations Spinner & Slider Stamp and die set. There were also bonus papers to download from the magazine's website.
I used a cloud embossing folder for the back layer. The scene was one of the free papers to download.
This balloon was stamped and then coloured with Copic pens. I mentioned to our daughter that I wanted to try them and she lent me hers. Which is very kind of her. I am so used to Promarkers I think it will be hard to change. The slot was cut with a die from the set. The smaller balloons were stamped with one of the stamps from the set. The balloon doesn't slide as smoothly as it might but it was my first attempt.
This is such a useful die I use it every year it is a Signature die.
Like usual when I make cards ahead I just have to remember where I have hidden them when the time comes.
I hope you have a great week.
