Playday at Deb's

Last Wednesday 16th March a few of us all descended on Deb's house for a playday. There were 7 of us including Debs and a lovely day was had by all. Deb's had arranged some projects for us which even included a jewellery project using wire ribbon.
Here are the 4 cards that we made.

The first card was a stamped image with two flower heads decoupaged and then glitter put into the centre of the flowers. We sewed the ribbon to rouche it up and this was then stuck on the card. A bit of stickles was added to the bee stream.

This card was made using stamps form the Born to Shop range which I do have some but never used them before. After doing this card I will. I love the layout of the card (that's what I have trouble with the layout even when I have a sketch to follow. The image was stamped and coloured with promarkers. The top layer of card then had the rectangles cut out and the words and handbags were stamped through them. The card border and window borders were coloured with promarkers again. The top layer of card was stuck using foam pads.

On this card the image of the FF bear was taken from a CD and enlarged. The bear was matted using large nesties and cut using the Grand Calibre. Very effective and easy card to make.

This card was made using stampin up stamp sets. The ribbon was rouched this time using sticky tape and then hand rouched. A very easy method to rouche ribbon. Deb's can't remember where she originally saw this card but it's a very good design.

The necklace was made using wire ribbon which is very stretchy. Not sure if I would buy any but it was fun making the necklace and it looks pretty cool.

As well as providing all the materials for the above projects, Debs also provided a lovely lunch of jacket potato, chicken legs and salad and other nibbles. She had also cooked some cup cakes that looked delicious but as I am on the weight watchers plan, I didn't partake.

Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Debs again and look forward to the next one.

Thanks for reading
