Good morning, I hope everyone had a nice weekend, despite the horrible weather. Sorry there was no post yesterday. Lisa was recovering from her 10 mile, moonlit walk, for the Heart of Kent Hospice & I had - and still have - a migraine headache. I don't get them often, thank goodness, but when I do, it's not good. Anyway, on to more important matters.
For the next few weeks on the blog, I'm going to be mostly concentrating on collections from Craftwork Cards. Obviously, I've been aware of Craftwork Cards for a long time, but haven't used any of the products, other than the Card Candi from time to time & of course, the card blanks, which are excellent quality. Lisa has given me a selection of products to play with & photos of her sample cards & my plan is to showcase the two in the coming weeks. And the good news for you, lovely readers, is that there is 25% off EVERYTHING in the Craftwork Cards collections on the Lisa B Designs website.
I'm starting us off with the Botanical collection. There are five elements in three colour ways in this collection & as the name suggests, it has a floral theme.
There are two sets of diecut scallops in the collection - circles & squares. Lisa has cut into the circle scallops & added Card Candi to the centres to make flowers. The scallops are also a perfect fit for the Craftwork Cards diecut messages.
Don't think you are limited to just these colours. The white card & patterned paper can be coloured however you choose & is in fact, called 'Colour Me'. Use alcohol pens, such as Spectrum Noirs, Copics or Promarkers, for the best results.
Lisa has coloured the flowers on the card above & added Glossy Accents to give some dimension & a lovely shine. You could also colour the background & leave the flower white, for a different look.
The Botanical collection is:
- Card Candi
NB: I've just noticed that Lisa hasn't had time to put the Card Candi on the website. Rest assured she will do so & she does have a LOT in stock. So, if you need it badly, drop her an email.
Thanks for visiting today. A few housekeeping messages before I go. Our recent Nitwits Week was so successful that Lisa has decided to continue with the 25% off promotion, so if you thought you had missed out, it's not too late. To see our samples start at the final day HERE & scroll backwards. Click on the links in the individual posts or go to the entire collection on the website. Another promotion on the website is 25% off die cut silhouettes. There are lots to choose from & you can see them all HERE.
There are just over six days left to enter the September challenge & we have had no entries yet, which is sad. A £20 voucher to spend on new crafting goodies is not to be ignored, so why not grab some papers, a stamp or two & have a play? If nothing else, it will take your mind off the awful weather. :)
Until next time, (tomorrow, I hope), take care.
