Trailer Masterclass on Embossing Paste

There are just 3 places left for my Masterclass on Embossing Paste.    Also included is an invaluable resource -  a sampler with 12 ways you can use the embossing paste which you can refer to and try at home as there won't be time to cover all 12 during class.  I have picked out 5 to teach you step by step in the morning on the day and you will then assemble the cards in the afternoon. More details in the video.

I have pinned this to the top of my blog until the closing date for booking on September 5th.





Email me - elaine.harding@googlemail.com if you have any questions.  If you book online, you can pay through paypal by clicking on the Embossing Paste Masterclass "Buy Now" button in the side bar.  I will send you further class details with regard to time, place, venue and what to bring.

Many thanks for visiting.

More "A Little Wild"

Good Day everyone!  Last Sunday I shared the adorable pink elephant, and this week it's the sweet little honey bear's turn.  Before you ask, yes, it's from the same "A Little Wild" stamp set!

I stamped the bear on shimmery white card stock so that I could use my aqua painters on it without fear of the card stock pilling or warping.  Shimmery white, as the name suggests, is shimmery all over the whole surface of both sides (front and back) of the card stock and has a pearlescent lustre.  It is heavier in weight and more forgiving for water colouring with.

The bear, hive, bees and flowers can be die cut as separate entities.  I doubled up die cutting them so that I could glue them back to back so that it would look the same from behind where possible through the circular window.

This card was made for the proud grandparents - and it was a great opportunity to use the Beehive Dynamic TIEF to enhance the front of the card.



I'm so glad we get to use the Banners for You photo-polymer stamp set for another year.  These stamps are so useful and suits so many occasions.  That goes for the Bunch of Banners Framelits too.


As the back of the banner showed through the circular aperture, I stamped "welcome" in order to integrate it with the rest of the design.  The grass was hand drawn and coloured with Wild Wasabi marker.

Hopefully, the grand-parents loved this as much as I did making it.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for popping by today.  xxx

Masculine Cards and for a Teen! Help!

Help is at hand!  I have a grandson now in his teens.  Lego, dinosaurs and stuff just don't cut it anymore - so I was tickled pink when I discovered Stampin' Up!'s Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle and a photopolymer stamp set called "Text Ya Later" - a perfect marriage and an answer to my teenage card making prayers!

It's so current for today's youngsters - and I might add for adults too.  How many of you are glued to your phones and are never without one (except when it's charging) and how many of you have it within easy reach when you go to bed?  Do some of you take it with you when you're in the bath too? Ahem!  I cannot lie, (blushes).   Guilty as charged for all three! .....and I'm NO teenager!  lol!

So do you want to see how I made that iphone?  Roll VT !







Did you know that if you click on the pictures, it will take you direct to the item in my online store which will give you more detail on the product and you can place an order if you wish.  It would be very much appreciated.

A Little Wild baby card

I made a birthday card for a friend's grand-daughter who had just had her first birthday last week but don't remember having taken a photo of it to share.

Hot on the heels of that one, I just had to make another using this very same set but this time for the arrival of a new baby using the other die elements in the coordinating framelits which make a pretty accent feature.

Having the image of the front ....


as well as back of the elephant is just too cute for words!


Hopefully the recipients of this card would've received it by now and it's safe to post!

Happy Sunday everyone!
