This is a little card I made some time ago and which missed being added to my blog. I used a stampin up stamp and added some heat embossing with a sparkly WOW powder. The top part if the background is embossed using an embossing folder and an embossing machine. I used a punch to achieve the little 'hollows' for the card candi to fit into. A piece of patterned ribbon hides the card join.

Today I have an unusual card design for my Frou Frou sample. I used some of the toppers from the cd to decorate each panel and left them fairly plain, just a few gems on the corners to embellish it. My thinking was that this would be a good card to use when there are a number of people needing to send greetings together, maybe to a work colleague. Each person could use a separate panel to send their thoughts. It folds down and fits into a normal C6 envelope.

Well this card almost ended up in the bin. I had it all put together when I decided that the skirt really needed to be a bit darker. I picked up a pen and did a couple of strokes before I realised, to my horror, that it was completely the wrong colour and much too strong. I quickly grabbed a better one and went over it. I think I've toned it in not too badly. At least it escaped being binned! Lol
This is a little image, from Crafters Companion, which I coloured a little while ago but then got stuck as I couldn't get a layout which pleased me. I began tidying my desk today and found her again so finally put her together as you see here. The bubbles are covered with glossy accents but its not showing up too well in the photo. Also this image comes as a fairy but I decided I would like to see what she looked like, without wings, as just a little girl.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to conduct a one day workshop in Randalstown Arches Centre at the end of January. These are two of the cards we made. I was advised to assume that no one had any card making experience. We began with the bags card using simple shapes and some colourful tissue paper saver from Christmas gifts. I explained that card making needn't be an expensive hobby if we think about ordinary things differently. The card using a Molly Blooms stamp was a bit more complex but I had chosen the colours to tone in with the papers so this made it work well.
