What I've been making lately

In the card making class that I run, we've been working with Glimmer Mists. (I bought mine from a fantastic website selling rubber stamps, inks, paints, tools, card making and scrapbooking suuplies. I can't rave about the company enough, believe me.) First, we used a range of peacock themed stamps and focussed on some triple embossing on mountboard, using coloured embossing powders to stamp into. Then, we stamped an inked image onto the mountboard first, and layered up clear embossing powder to create a tile effect.

We then made a couple of tag cards with a butterfly tile, using a Glimmer Mist background. For these backgrounds, we used a Butterfly Glimmer Mask when creating the background papers.

The next process we tried was stamping onto a Glimmer Mist background which is what Idid on the Anniversary card, for the entwined hearts. I also used a spare sheet of 200 gsm card and ran it through my printer to get a coordinating greeting. I used sweet pea Glimmer Mist, which is a lovely colour. I have also tried stamping and embossing in gold onto a background of browns, and golds too, which came out well, but have yet to finish that card.

Hi Judith. Just popped over to your blog from the GG. The cards you have made are beautiful. Glimmer Mists are so clever, the effects are amazing. Must get mine out next week when I'm off work. The jewellry to is lovely. I make cards and also dabble in jewellry making. Reading your blog from Teesside I know how you were feeling because my daughter is off to either Chester or Manchester Met (Crewe). I don't know how I'll take her going so far away. I'll be looking out for your next post. Debbie M

I'm visiting from the GG group too. Love the art pieces you've made Judith especially the triple embossing.

I sympathise with you over your daughter flying the nest. As my children are older, I been there and done that, etc., etc.

Look forward to seeing your next set of photos.
