Happy Weekend to you all, I hope you are all having a good one so far. I've been at The Paperlane this morning running my little class with a lovely group of ladies. I will be sharing some of the cards we made over the coming days.
It's been a warm but rainy day here for us in the NE of the UK. Though the beans managed to play outside for an hour or so before the heavens opened this afternoon. They were not very happy at all when we had to come in!
Anyway, I'm here today to announce the WINNER of the June Release Design Team Blog Hop. Random.org helped me choose the winner who left this lovely comment on Lindsey's blog.
The WINNER is...
Thank you to everyone who left comments and hopped along with us. We will be having our usual Revisited Blog Hop next week on the 11th July 9am BST with our usual GIVEAWAY too!
Before I go, how about a little card inspiration...
This is one of the cards we made during the class today. I was getting the ladies to have a go with stencilling and ink blending - good inky fun!
The diagonal stripe background was created using the SU! Stripe stencil and Peacock Feather distress ink. The outline hibiscus from the Paradise clear stamp set was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in detail white EP onto some card which had been ink blended with Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade.
After fussy cutting the hibiscus out they are adhered to the card using DST and the middle flower raised with foam adhesive. I have also added a good smothering of Wink Of Stella to the flowers! The sentiment is from the set and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins are added for embellishment.
Ok, that's all from me today, I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Until then, thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Saturday!
