Craftwork cards - Warren!!!
It's such a wonderful morning; the sun is shining, the birds are singing and my crafty storage is back up!!! It's great to have all my promarkers back up and all my flowers, diamantes and distress inks back in their new homes! That got rid of quite of few of the boxes - I tell you! I have a Crafters Companion demo day on saturday 16th at Craft Central in Fleetwood 10-4 so I need to learn the ecraft machine inside out. The card I needed has just arrived so I'm going to go and have a play when my mum gets here as she can watch Tayla! In the last few days she's been threatening us with crawling and "by jove - I think she's got it!" Lol. We weren't sure whether she would crawl as she kept trying to stand up so I don't think it'll be too long till she's walking - Arghhh! They're enough of a handful to look after when they stay in the same spot! Lol.
Anyway, I thought I'd share a card I made for a Craftwork cards workshop I had a few weeks back using the warren range which you can buy from here. They are doing a fab goody bag at the moment for £10 in the ranges, sweet meadow, warren and sorbet scoop which are really good value although you can get all the bits individually too! They are great ranges as all the bits co-ordinate nicely with each other taking all the guesswork out of it which is great if you're a newbie or you're just not very good at working out what goes well together!
As there was only 12 of the images - I made my sample with the easter egg image as nobody else would want to use that image after easter! I coloured it in very quickly using my promarkers then I matted the image onto some pink centura pearl card that I cut using my eyelet circles nestie. I mounted a round circle sentiment onto a shiny silver circle die cut before mounting it onto the small scalloped circle as there was a big gap around the sentiment if I added it straight to the scalloped circle. I normally wouldn't use these as I have scalloped circle nesties but it was what I was given to use in the workshop. I added some punched x-cut flowers using leftover paper and added card candy to the centres. It's quite a basic card but I have to make 3 cards and 10 kits of each of the 3 cards with the stuff that I get given and I make so I need the stuff to go a long way.
Normally, I make 2 6x6 sized cards but I was given some smaller craftwork cards blanks to work with so I decided to make 1 6x6 card and 2 smaller ones. This is also what I'm doing for my next workshop as Barbara wants me to use up the last of the card blanks.
