A busy day ahead.....

Hi Gang. All ready here at Pinnacles for today's demo day with Andy Skinner.
Can't wait to see what he has in store for us all.... As I stated in yesterdays quick post, the new November/December Do Crafts promotion has arrived.. It was unpacked, checked off and priced up, and then we had to do the usual impossipuzzle to fit it onto our already bulging shelves.. But fit it on we did!
Looks pretty amazing no?! Like I said earlier this week, I was lucky enough to have a little play with the goodies before they actually came in..
So here is my second sample for you. Although the promo is pretty nondescript in the fact that it does not cover any particular season. This one I have made into a crimbo card.
So, after the usual gubbings of stamping the image, colouring with my Copics and glazing with Glossy Accents
I cut the image out, lobbing off the fronds from the ladies hat! There was just no way that I could cut that fine detail,
but I replaced them with some feathers... Christmas is such a busy time for us all, especially card makers! So, anything which can make the job easier, and above all, quicker is always a bonus.
This particular Embossing Folder (Xmas Joy to All from the Ho Ho Ho Collection from Couture Creations) fills those needs. Not only does it have a nice embossed image, but the sentiment is also part of the folder. Double whammie!! So, once embossed,
I matt and layered it
before adding my stamped image
and mounting it onto an Acetate base card to finish it off.. Simple dimple.... See you later if you are popping in for the demo, and don't forget, it's 20% off in store today for all Pinnacle Crafts Club Members (usual exceptions apply), time to stock up me thinks!! Thanks for checking us out. See you soon Andy..
