The first one is made with a silver peel off with a bit of purple colouring matted on silver mirror card. Finished off with a piece of ribbon and some gems.
The backing paper was from my stash and it is printed vellum. You can't really see it but iot has been edged with a martha Stewart edge punch. The image was embossed using cuttlebug embossing folder and the backing run through the swiss dots embossing folder. A piece of ribbon and some gems and a peel off greeting finished it off.
The card below has been made for my brother on law, Ron. The card is 125mm square. The backing paper is from my stash. The cars are gold peeloffs placed over black paper and cut out. I have used a greeting from craftwork cards and black card candy.
The next card was made for my friend's son. It's a 5ins x 7ins card landscaped. The backing paper is from my stash. The cricket players are decoupaged from a sheet I got from The Range. The greeting is from Craftwork cards as were the card candy.

This is the outside look of the card.
When you open the door there is the littlke girl standing there in the garden in the with snowflakes hanging down. Again we were given enough stuff to make another card.
When you open the card up it reveals what could have been an old dance hall in the 1920's. The man and woman are from Nancy's DVD 'Festive Follies' that I have purchased ( at a discount price from the show..). They were cut out and stuck onto folds on the card. In the original card they were decoupaged but i didn't do that. The inside of the gatefolds were matted & layered with silver and glittered card as in the front. The chandalier was printed onto acetate and then cut out with a tag and stuck under the message on the top support. The messgae was printed out. I loved this card and the images (I just love art deco) but it could have been made better. I didn't have my own tools and I messed up a bit, but we do have enough stash to make the card again.
This card was made in the class run by Kim Sutton from B-Craft-e. The card was made from one of Kim's templates called ' 3-d reveal card'. The pictures are of course Beatrix Potter. We were allowed to keep the template so that we can make the card again. The samples that she had were really good but unfortunately as I said in a previous post I lost all my pictures.
The fiorst picture is of it closed:
This picture shows it opened.You can't see it well but you have 3 struts in the card that allow you to create the 3 d effect. Peter Rabbit is sitting on the closest strutt and looks to be running towards the bunny at the back. We also made a 'boxelope' to go with the card. This was made from a template which Kim allowed us to purchase at half the price. The card fits in it exactly. It would also do all your A5 decoupaged cards also as iot gives the extra depth.

We arrived at the hotel at at 6ish, very impressed with the hotel The Earl. Looks absolutely nothing from the outside but once you got in,, WOW!! I did have some photos of the inside but when I came to download them to the computer, either the camera or the laptop had a wobbly and the pictures were erased. Hopefully Pam may put hes on her blog when she gets sorted...
Friday was workshop day, we were booked onto 4 workshops. We were a bit apprehensive at the beginning cause we didn't know what to expect but what a brilliant day. We did 4 workshops and made a completed card in all of them and came away with the stuff to be able to make another card also. The cards I will post once I have photographed them.
On the Saturday we went round the show itself. To say ot was busy is an huge understatement.. the morning was manic. In hindsite if we go next year we have said that we won't go til the afternoon as we could have gone in on the Sunday also.. We were knackered when we finished, but we had had a good day with lots of bargains. Spent lots of money but then I can shop for England if it was craft stuff. I did have a pic of all my stash but again it was lost when the camera/laptop through a wobbly.
We drove home on Sunday feeling knackered, but iyt had been a great weekend and we will definately be there next year!!

The second card was again using backing sheet from the Papermania capsule collection . The decoupage flowers were from the same sheet as before. The backing card was cut using Nellie multi frame. I have used a Martha Stewart corner punch on the backing paper and added some white gems to the corbers. You can't really see it in the picture. I have added some ribbon and again the greeting is from Craftwork Cards. I have added a couple of gems to the greeting.
