Freebie Friday-Tour De France

Good evening everyone.
With the Tour de France this week, I thought it would be appropriate to give away some digistamps relating to cycling. So this week you will find a mix of stamps including a Penny Farthing.
As usual, you will find the stamps on the Freebie page of my main site.

This is a card I made last night, which is a long card in a box. I uploaded a tutorial for this card to my website last week.

All for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday-Tutorial

Good evening everyone.
That's another week over, where does the time go?
Its been an eventful week, we have hopefully sold our house, subject to contract. We had a new shower fitted in the main bathroom, so things are looking up.

Here is a card I made at club yesterday:

It was all made with just a single flower stamp. Thanks to Pam for the demo.

The freebie this week is a tutorial on using different types of glues with gilding flakes, mica powders, flock and foil on stamps and stencils. As always you will find the tutorial on the free tutorial page of my main site.
All for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday-Recipe stamps

Hello Bloggers,
My post is a bit late tonight but at least I have got there in the end!
Have you been enjoying the weather? I hope you have a nice weekend planned to make the most of it while it lasts?
I have my card club at Eagle tomorrow and so I am looking forward to spending the day with my friends.

I spent the other afternoon playing with masks and stamps, using different mediums such as gilding flakes, flock and mica powders.I used both Flitter glue and Stampendous-stamp n' bond. The Flitter glue is very tacky and ideal for all these mediums, however I found that some of the definition of the stamps was lost. The stamp n' bond is used like an embossing powder, stamp or cover stencil with Versamark, sprinkle with stamp n' bond and heat with a gun. When the powder turns from white to clear it is tacky and ready for use. This takes literally seconds, don't be tempted to heat more as you will dry the glue out. You can then use your chosen medium over the top.

Here is one I made using a stencil, Versamark, stamp n' bond and mica powders.

The freebie Friday this week is a set of recipe digistamps, as usual you can find them on the free download page of my main site.

Freebie Friday-Templates

Good evening everyone!
Are you looking forward to a lovely weekend? The weather for us here in Lincoln is supposed to be dry and sunny, so we'll see.

Here are some cards I have made this week:

This one was made at club last night.

This was a special order for a golfing fan.

This was a special order for a footie fan.

The Freebie Friday this week is a set of templates to make 3 different size box frames, there is a square, DL and A5 size. They are pretty self explanatory really so you shouldn't have any problems.
As usual you can find the templates on my main site.
All for now, Tina x
