Stained Glass Boat

It's always great to be on the receiving end of a handmade present (doesn't happen as often as I'd like😉) but this stained glass boat was given to me yesterday as a "thank you" and very pleased I was to open the parcel. Bit hard to photograph glass but the shadow is captured in the background.

Rubber Stamped lotus flower card

Good old fashioned rubber stamping has been the staple of the cardmaker for years, but it has gone slightly out of fashion in favour of die cutting and embossing. This lotus flower card made recently is a reason why I still enjoy stamping.

Summer Workshop pop-up card

The workshop I ran last week was slightly more challenging with dimensional cards made, here is one of the pop-up cards created and after some head scratching all of the class went home with a very similar version.

Summer workshops

July is the time for cardmaking summer workshops and this is just one card made recently using the favourite anchor die cut. There was a general theme of nautical cards along side the usual florals.
