This card is for the lovely Marie whose birthday it was yesterday. On the retreat Emma had shared with us how to two step stamping using a thingumjig oh sorry no a stamp-a-ma-jig a stampin up tool. I now think this will be my very best tool (after my cropodile, fiskars trimmer and pokey tool of course). It works sooooo well . Perfect placement of the image every time!
So I stamped a cake using adirondack and archival inks to match the papermania V&A papers. Stampin up border punch, ribbon and card stock from stash. So thats it my weekend labours. I have to say my fellow retreaters were much more productive - 2 altered mirrors, an altered chest, 50 save the date cards, lots of scrapbook layouts, lots of cards, 2 exploding boxes and altered notebooks.
The altered note books were the warm up project everyone decorated their own notebook so they then had a place to write down hints and tips they had learned or any info they wanted to remember. This went down really well. It was also a place to swap contact details and add info from the mini demos/ workshops.
So there you have it - sorry its not more pics - I was really not very well at all and so not with it - I promise to be more on the ball at the next retreat!
