End of Term Madness

1st Workshop

Sneaky Peak - part II

End of term mania

Well it is as manic as ever, with Emma's birthday celebrations taking over two weekends and trying to finish up all my work commitments by the end of term.  Being busy is at least doing the diet some good, however I can't wait until the summer holidays and enjoying some fun times with my girls.  Here are the two cards I made for Emma, one from Mummy and Daddy and the birthday cake one from Izzy.  Sophie made her own stylish drawing (as only a 4yr old can).

I used the 'Heat and Stick' powder from Stampin' Up on the blue card and the butterfly.  Basically you use an embossing ink - like versamark - to stamp the image, cover in the heat and stick powder and heat with a heat tool.  Be carefully as it doesn't take as long to 'turn' as embossing powders.  Once it is ready, cover the image in ordinary glitter and re-heat briefly to set.  It means you can stamp and glitter an image without ruining your stamp with glue.  I guess it depends on the type of glitter…
