I love this stamp set, and was looking at some brayering techniques and thought I would have a go ( ha hence my title name ) I think a little more practise is needed !!

Male Teacher Gift

Saw this little number on Di, from simply said and thought that it would make a fab male teacher gift , although if I was completely honest I would prefer a real choc swiss roll ,hee hee, still not good to encourage teachers to have bad habbits is it? xxx

Birthday slider

Another slider, this time for a young man who is going to be a TEENAGER! Can you spot the money xxx

engagement slider card

Hi all, here is a card I have made using the lovely Mr & Mrs stampin up set, a lovely young lady we know has just got engaged ,so I thought I would share the card I have made for her. I Should have remembered the ribbon goes across the middle on the inside, hence I have tried to make the wording look as if it should be there so many times, still lets hope it brings them good fortune. xxx

What ! Christmas already!!!

No of course not, but its never too early for some great inspiration, and thats what we got at our class today with the lovely Jenny from over at stamping moments, her inspiration and colour combinations are second to none, we love you Jen! thanks for all your hard work. So to the photo of our project , an all in one box which had a sachet of hot choc in and we were to add mini marshmallows to complete the look. A beautiful slider card,I can never have too many reminders on how to make one of these, and a lovely glittery tree card. The stamp set is from the stampin'up mini catalogue,called Scandinavian Season. Interested?? Dont know a Demonstrator, then Email me at val-ade@live.co.uk for more information or with your details and I WILL send you a catalogue.xxxx

A couple of cards using stampin'up set baroque motif, I have used an idea from the demonstrators magazine which was to emboss in white onto not too patterned designer paper, I used the boho blossom punch to punch out the little flowers in ruby red, I cut them out in the pumpkin pie. Hope you like!!!
