August 3rd - Collage Stamps

Here is the first card project - deconstructing the collage stamp to create a number of different background papers.

 
Another collage stamp, again taking individual elements from the collage stamp to create the background, then "decoupage" the topper with tags.
 
 
Take the collage stamp and stamp in sepia and then colour just the focal part of the image.

 
Stamp on acetate, heat embossed, added adhesive sheet to the back of the stamped image and coloured in with glitter and sakura pens.

 
Creating a background with an element of the stamp, but not an all over background.


Image stamped and decoupaged and glittered round the edges.

  Wall Hanging
Created using several travel collage stamps.
 
Backgrounds created by using three alcohol inks.  Then the individual coloured inks were taken to colour pieces of card for stamping elements of the collage stamp, and then paper piecing over the multicoloured card.

July 6th - Toilet Paper

Creating unique "hand-made" papers with toilet paper.  Did not get to make cards, just played around with sprays, masks, toilet paper and die cutting machines.

June 1st - Grid Cards 2

This session was a request after the ladies had seen this card.

Mainly Clarity stamps used for this card.
 
I personally find it is a better card if the images in each of the grids tie together in a theme. 

A couple of Little Claire Stamp Sets used here.
 
Try and keep the mats and layers simple.

A couple of Sandra Wright (House of Zandra) stamps used here.
Stamps are the Daisy theme, hence the background paper used.
