Sorry and today's card...

Thank you for popping by, if you're able to leave a comment, thank you. I appreciate all of your feedback. I had a great Saturday afternoon crafting with the daughter of an old school friend. She made a birthday card for her mum using a die she'd bought - the die cutting machine is on her Christmas Wish List! and some dies I'd got - forgot to take a photo though

I must apologise for missing Tuesday. A friend offered to pick me up from work and on the way suggested going crafty shopping - how could I refuse! Actually I didn't buy much in the end. I'd have liked to have bought a box frame for a project I have in mind but they they didn't have the right size. I did buy some kraft card blanks and metallic twine from HC. It was nice to have a browse and see some of the "stuff" we look at on the internet. I apologise for not visiting any of your blogs. I will try and catch up

Today's card was just total play, I didn't have an event/occasion in mind. I recently made a few Silver Wedding cards using a laser printer and a Patsy May Foil-it machine - I understand that there's a way of using these foils with an iron... It reminded me that you can use the waste in this manner. I printed off a Serif image using an inkjet printer this time and "traced" around parts with a Quickie glue pen. Then I left it to dry (i.e. let the glue go clear - 30 mins, next day..) I laid the waste foil over the top and gently rubbed over the top with my finger/coffee stirrer. The foil sticks to the glue. I was quite pleased with the result and made it into this card

5x5 card blank

See you Saturday

  4. Hi Karen back from my hols and catching up with you today. What a great idea about the foils - so we don't need all the fancy machines then!!! Looks fantastic on your picture so must really stand out in reality. Have a good day wet and dull here. Best wishes Jackie x

  5. I love your foiling cards Karen, it is not something I have tried. It's on my to do list!
    Lovely floral arrangement and great way to use up waste hot foil.

    Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

  6. Hi Karen
    What a great effect. It looks like some expensive Hunkydory card.
    Not long to the NEC so saving my pennies for that.
    Have a great weekend.
