A great crafty evening!!

A much needed crafty evening last Tuesday with Kerry at the Craft Box!!

Had a great night with such lovely ladies and plenty of laughs!

This is my second card I made that night but I have shown it first as its my favourite!

We made the card and cut all the pieces before we set to work with the stamps.

The background stamp is a magnolia from the new Valentines collection as is the lovely sentiment!

We stamped the background then sprayed it with mists!

The love heart is done using foils and I love it I must buy some of these as it looks so elegant! Added the lovely thin ribbon and gems!!

The first card is so different a twisted easel! We used another magnolia and some of the new paper range.

When I got home I used some glossy accents on the hearts and it really makes them stand out.

Love this card just love the different shape!

Just sat making my Step-Sons birthday card!! he's 17 this week and I hate boy cards!!!

Hope you have all had a great weekend Love Chanelle xxxxxx

Hi Chanelle,

Your cards look great, love the embellies you have added at home.

I couldn't take a good photograph of my white one. Love it because I would never dream of making a card like this. I love the Magnolia backing stamp.

Love Kerry xxx

Thank you for your lovely comment. This will be my first Valentine's Day on my own but have decided its not going to get me down! Hopefully my daughter will help take my mind of things.

Hopefully I'll be back on the CPF soon but I've recently changed my job hours and finding it hard at the moment to make as many cards as before.

Love the foiling technique. It is aaaaaaages since I used mine, in fact I tend to forget about stuff until someone uses it and you have used it to great effect! Love the twisted easel too. Oh and thanks so much for your comment and concerns for Cinders. Sue x
