Problem with Posting Pictures

Thought I'd show you pictures of the cards I have made for swaps at Leadership Training I am attending on Saturday.  For some reason Blogger is not giving me the option to upload any pictures,  it is not loading the editing bar completely. 

The cards are A6 landscape, they have Early Espresso base, Bashful Blue matt and Whisper White embossed with Snowflakes.  The snowflakes have been enhanced with drops of Dazzling Details.  Dazzling Details is a new glitter glue from Stampin' Up! available to purchase from 1 September.  I really love it, it is loaded with quite a fine silver glitter and dries reasonably quickly, touch dry in approx 30 minutes.  An easy way to add glitter to your cards that will not fall off in the envelope.

I will post photo as soon as I can, although I'm not sure the picture will do justice to the sparkle from the Dazzling Details.

Christmas Card Club

At the first meeting we made four punch art cards.  The Ornament Punch (119847  £15.50) was used on three of the four cards.  We will be making more cards using the ornament punch, it really is very versatile and not just for Christmas.
The Elf Card was cased from Connie Babbert and the 3d Bauble Card was cased from Alison Langford.  If you recognise either of the two other cards as your design, please let me know and I will give you credit.

Please contact me if you wish to purchase any of the supplies used in the card/papercraft clubs.

Anniversary Card

I had a last minute anniversary card to make last week, I used the owl punch, basic black and whisper white card stock and Neutrals paper stack.  I am quite pleased with the way it turned out considering the short time I had to make it.

Thanks for looking,
