Cards, cards, cards...

Good Sunday morning to you all!
As previously mentioned, here are a few cards from my most recent DoCrafts demo from Jan 17th at The Range Dundee.

My Sample display

That flamingo is really cute - Xcut min die!
Floral diecut panel over inked backgrounnd

Inked background with diecut butterflies
One of the products I was using was a lovely floral panel die, ideal for using as a background on an A6 card. Firstly, I used the diecut piece as a straight forward back ground panel over an inked and blended background panel, then I thought I would try using the diecut piece as a stencil to ink through which was really effective.

Next up - a couple of cards using an Xcut Cut and emboss folder...

Heat embossed sentiment in window

Gorjuss Girl inside window
These cards us the Xcut Cut and Emboss Window folder. As with the other Cut and Emboss folders, this combines diecut elements into your embossing which is a great idea. This one is a window this time. The first card I inked and heat embossed a sentiment which is revealed when the window is opened up. I also made another which I thought would look cute to have the Gorjusss Girl on the inside looking out of the window.

Talking of Gorjuss - here she is adorning a kraft lunchbag!

CAS card - Happy Birthday

CAS card - Hello

 I also demonstrated some clean and simple styled cards sticking to a colour palette of 4 colours. The Hello card has the sentiment die cut in to the stripy panel which is layered on top of a self adhesive paper wood-veneer panel. I love making CAS cards...

Family Tree die
This shadow box I've used here as a deep picture frame. The Family Tree die is lovely and actually versatile enough to use as a stand alone element for other projects...

Bare Basics drawers
Lastly a decorating project - a set of Bare Basics drawers. I decorated the drawer fronts, added pegs which have two uses - to open the drawers and to hold a label which tells you what is in each drawer. I painted a different colour that coordinates with the stripy paper, inside each drawer.

Thanks for having a look at my DoCrafts projects! For those of you that come along to my appearances armed with DoCrafts goodies at The Range in Dundee - a big thankyou - it's always a pleasure to meet you all and have a crafty blether. I'm back there again on March 11th, so see you all soon!

   So, have a lovely crafty weekend everyone and please pop by again soon!
Love, Jak
