'Ever So Lovely' & Ally Pally Demo Samples

Happy World Cardmaking Day! Hope you are going to spend your Saturday cardmaking like myself. Here are a couple of cards I have made using the brand new super lovely image 'Ever so Lovely', from Little Claire . The name says it all!

On my second card, I covered the image with a sparkle sticker sheet, also available from Little Claire's. Can't stop playing with them, want to cover everything in sparkle lol! Here are some of my samples that I made for Ally Pally. First one is using the'Good Morning Robin' stamp set and I have made an aperature so that the image turns around and on the reverse of the image, is a Red Gingham sentiment.

Same image used here but in mono tones, again covered in sparkle, love it! Have added some Marianne die swirls and snowflakes and card candy. Papers are from Craft Creations.

Little Rudy is on a stamp called 'Deck the Horns', again lots of swirls and snowflakes.

'Mr Darcy's postbox' was used on this card with MS snowflake punch, a bunting template and white spotty ribbon.

Finally, here is the card that I made in front of over a hundred ladies at the Ally Pally demo. Yep, I was rather nervous, to say the least, but the ladies were very kind and patient and I really enjoyed myself after all of the panic. A big thanks to the wonderful Ali who demoed before me and helped me to set up, your a star! I used the Red Gingham image 'Cold Crisp Kisses', which I really love. I coloured in with glitter and made flowers from punches.

The sentiment inside is a Penny Black and the frond punch is from Woodware.

Hope you like what you have seen, I am off to join in the cardmaking frenzy that will be happening all over the world today, any excuse to leave the housework. Thanks so much for stopping by and any comments left, I appreciate and love reading them all!
