Yesterday, as some of you know, I went to The Stitch & Craft Show in Olympia. The funny thing about going to Olympia, is how long it takes! I live in West London, probably about 10 miles away but it actually took me 1.5 hours to get there. That's London Transport for you, together with a long and chilly wait on the platform at Earls Court!!
This was my first visit to this show and even though it didn't cater for papercrafting as much as I hoped, I still managed to come away with a few bits and pieces and a lighter purse!! lol I also managed to see Dawn Bibby, who was as busy as ever and surrounded by her fans but I did manage to take a photo of her, in a quiet moment. And last but not least, I caught up with the lovely, Sarah for a coffee and chat. All in all, it was a good day out and I can't wait to start playing with my goodies that I bought back from the show!!
Now, it's back to today's share and, a big hello to all my new followers... *waves* Thanks for following me and I really hope you'll stop by and say hello back, very soon!!
And here's today's cards, using a combination of these Clarity Stamps. I hope you like them...
Both cards feature all types of embossed work. From dry embossing, using a Tim Holtz embossing folder, heat embossing, using Dreamweaver embossing paste, the list goes on but I really wanted to show you all the different effects that can be achieved with these fabulous techniques.
This card was made using the Celtic corner stamps to create the border and embossed with gold embossing powder. I then used one of the flourishes from the other set to make my Melt Art enamel feature.
So, tomorrow I'll be back with the final two cards in my little Clarity mini series! lol
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.
See you tomorrow...
