So this was my first project of the day where I used a proper mask for the butterfly stamp for the first time, also got to use gold embossing powder (which I purchased at the end of the day) I also liked the idea of using the pen nib on the butterfly body. The background was done using distress inks and misting spray.

The next one was a wedding card where I learnt how to do paper grouting on the embossed background and the die cut flowers using a small pallet knife and Glitter paste, which was a cool technique I enjoyed. Wasn't so keen on all the frills though.

This was a pop out type card which was fun and super easy to make. Spent most of the time stamping the flowers and ferns, then cutting and piecing it back together. Perfect fit for a standard DL envelope that I usually have plenty of in my cupboard.

This home sweet home sign was really cute, I enjoyed painting the background and the stamps themselves with translucent and opaque paints. I also enjoyed created a textured background with simple things like bubble wrap and simple stamps.

This owl themed card was one of my favourites for the day. I love using cardboard like this for texture and depth of a simple design. The owl itself is super cute too, I also enjoyed paint him and decoupaging him into 3d.

This was my favourite project of the day. Adding all sorts of embellishments and embossed card and modge podging wrinkly paper, then painting the whole thing black with gesso. Once you run your finger over with Inka Gold of various colours (one of which I also purchased) and you get this great grungy metallic effect which I love. This is the project that inspired me with regards my ATCs this month with the CS stamp.

So there they all are. I hope you like.

Well done Rachel on setting up your gallery.  All your projects are super - looks like this was a really worthwhile workshop.

Congratulations on getting your Gallery going Rachel.  

The Dabble Day certainly gave a lot of variety, both in techniques and projects - just love the steampunk heart.  Look forward to seeing your ATCs using that technique

Thank you everyone, Becky, it was Dabble Day with Loobi Crafts (www.loobicrafts.co.uk) which is a shop in Leighton Buzzard. Also the place the event was held. There weren't any guest speakers or anything this time but I know they have had them in the past. The lady who owns the shops thought up and prepared every single craft herself. Then used her happy helpers so there was one person manning each desk to show everyone what to do.

let me know if you are ever over this way and we'll meet up. It is also not too far from Whipsnade zoo or the Tree Cathedral if others need entertainment. It also is on the canal for those who like boat watching.

Made my best friend a "New Home" 3D pop up card last night and was a little chuffed with how it came out. So here it is.


Click to see full size image

It is flatten to go into the envelope and then I've attached "pull" tabs on the sides to bring them out with ease so it can stand. Looking through the window shows a hidden home of the house-y type stamps I used. A chandelier (embossed with silver), a grandfather clock and a Silhouette photo frame which can be seen whilst the card is flattened. I forgot to take a picture of the clock, but you can just about see it to the left in the bottom left picture. Sorry they're not clearer, was taken last minute last night before I sent it off today.

I got the template from a website

http://www.diyvalley.com/made-a-beautiful-3d-house-greeting-card/

I printed it out and used it to create a bigger, blank outline and then decorated it myself with stamps on the front and back and then glued it together.
