Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. I have a card today that I showed at the Craft Barn Extravaganza using my new Kadoodle Church stamp and also my Kadoodle swirly stamp available now in the shop and soon online. For this card I've used the Church to make a wedding card, I also made another where I've used the same stamp for a Christmas card and I'll post that one later on. The church stamp is water coloured with distress inks with a bit of stickles added for some sparkle. I stamped the background paper with the swirly stamp from one of the sets of images in versamark ink and then applied some gold perfect pearls powder. The card blank is cut from gold pearlescent card and the layers applied with some dimension tape. I added some flowers, distressed the paper edges and finished off with a cream bow and a doodlebug rub on.
I had a great time at the weekend at the Craft Barn extravaganza, it was lovely to meet everyone and chat and I know that some of you are readers of my blog, so a big hello and thank you for spending some of your time with me. Debby (debby 4000) and Julie (julie's inkspot) it was a great pleasure to meet for the first time and it was lovely to see my DU DT friend Kim (Simplyfairies) again. I also met Fiona who might have a blog very soon and who I've been in touch with by email, it was great to see you all.
As you can see from the photo above we had a laugh at the end after clearing up, my lovely friend Sandra and the gorgeous Paula Pascal who is so sweet and funny and who make the events very special. Stamping Caz was also demonstrating and it was the first I'd met her, a lovely lady who very kindly took this photo of us. I got to see Isabelle Norris very briefly who came over from Canada for the event so that was lovely. I did get a very special photo of Paula but have been banned from blogging it :) and also a good one of Leandra from Paper Artsy but I forgot to ask her if I could blog it so I haven't. Hello to you all girls, thanks for making the weekend a very good one. Thanks also to Sandy and the team at the CB for an enjoyable time and sweets to eat too! OK, enough :) . TFL. Chris x
