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

Freebie Friday

Evening bloggers!
Its Friday again! The weeks are flying by! 
I have had a terrible week, my husband has been away in Normandy for the D Day celebrations and while he has been away everything has gone wrong!

I have been making his birthday card while he has been away and thought I would share it with you as I know he doesn't look at my blog!



I used the new Xcut tunnel dies, this set is the 'woodland' one. I also used a mixture of Stampin' Up and Clarity stamps.

The Freebie Friday this week are 3 sheets of Oriental designs, I hope you like them.
As usual you can find the download on my main site.
All for now, Tina x
