This card was made using one of the Magenta range of stamps No. 50013P and the flowers were coloured with Promarkers then a little glitter was added.  The image was firstly matted onto Core'dinations cardstock and then white cardstock before adhering to the final Core'dinations card that had been edged with a Martha Stewart PATP.  The completed image was then mounted onto a black card base.






All of the above cards have been made from one pack which costs only £4.99 which means each card and envelope only costs 35p.  All the elements are contained in the pack and all the cards have a printed design on the front.





This very pretty card on a box was one of a selection of cards made in Dawn's workshop at the end of last year.



The above easel card was created using Barbara Gray's elegant lady clear stamp, Kanban printed mirri card, a Martha Stewart border punch and the flowers were made by using an EK Success flower punch with beaded buttons in the centre.  The dress was made by inking the stamp with versamark and then placing a sandwich of Cosmic Shimmer fusible fibres between between two layers of Cosmic Shimmer Heat Bondable Irridescent Film on top of the stamp, and then applying heat via a warm iron over a piece of greaseproof paper.  The dress was then cut out and glued onto a duplicate image that has been stamped onto cardstock. 





This card was one of the samples kindly donated by the demonstrator at one of our Do Crafts Demonstrations.  It has been made using Do Crafts 'Its a Man's World'  decoupage.






Another card made during a Do Crafts Demonstration using their product range 'It's a Man's World'.




This card is from the Gorgeous Die Cut Decoupage Collection and has been mounted onto a DL sized pink card base which has an edge punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.





This is a box card from the Gorgeous Collection where everything is included to make this beautiful card that folds flat for posting.





The above card was made using one of the John Bryars wooden backed rubber stamps, black pigment ink and Sprinkle N Sparkle Black Magic Embossing Powder.  The image was then cut out and matted onto several silver/black layers of cardstock before adding to a black card base.   A Martha Stewart border punch was used to accentuate the layered image and paper flowers were added to complete the card.



The background for this lovely card was created using Distress Inks and then stamped images were added.  The edge of the card was punched out with a Martha Stewart border punch.





This basket and mini book have been made using Spellbinders Nestablilities and were part of a workshop held with Dawn just before Christmas.






This very unusual 3Dimensional card was created by Sofia using the Kanban Super Heroes Collection Decoupage Kits.



Another 3D creation from Sofia using Kanban Super Heroes decoupage kits.





This card was made using the La Pashe Trinitage range.  There are eight different sheets in the pack which costs £4.99.  These need to be cut out but they do create a very unusual card.  This card will also fold flat for posting.




This twisted easel card features the Tatty Teddy stamp that was a free gift with the latest Do Craft Creativity Magazine.  The free embossing folder was also used on the card, along with a Martha Stewart Butterfly Border Punch.  The papers used were from a collection of 120 double sided papers that cost only £9.99 per pack.  Safmat was used for the greeting and the butterfly was from a pack that are currently offered as 'Buy one get one free' and cost £1.99 per pack.





This card was donated by Gaynor, who is one of the Do Craft demonstrators, following the demonstration held on 7th May 2011.  It comes from the latest Tulip range of die cut decoupage.




This fully operational clock was created using one of  the many canvases on sale in the shop and a clock mechanism.  The canvas was first painted around all edges with silver acrylic paint and then a random pattern was added to the front using lilac and silver acrylic paint .  Glitter was added to small areas for a bit of 'glitz'.  This project would be ideal for children to make (with adult supervision) and could be a 'sanity saver' during the school holidays.






These sun hats are only £5.99 for all three and can be decorated using the elements contained in each kit.  They are perfect for children to make (with adult supervision) and could also be a great project for the school holidays.




This amazing Kite was hand drawn by Laura from a kit containing two blank kites for you to add your own designs.  This is another great idea for keeping the children amused in the holidays as they only cost £5.99 for the two.



              



This is a paper m√Ęche pencil case containing 12 pencils that can be decorated in various ways, but on this occasion tissue paper and medium were used.  This is a very simple process and could easily be done by children (with adult supervision) and therefore would be another project to do over the school holidays.





Sofia decorated the above letter using acrylic paint and small crystal gems.  Other options for decorating could be using small pieces of tissue pasted on with a medium or watered down PVA glue, painting first with acrylic paint and then rubber stamping images on the top, spraying with one of the Crafter's Companion's range of glitter sprays, decorating with alcohol inks or distress inks, or cover with fabric.  Another idea for school holidays.
