 ok lets get down to business. The original stipulation was no cards but I know some of the ladies have done cards. I know sometimes when you are so used to making cards and then all of a sudden you have to think of something else it can be quite daunting. Anyway enough of my waffle. So what have I done for the blog hop  well a as the Americans call it ..... A Brag Book. Made with the Gift bag punch board. 

  The above picture shows the cover of the book. Basically all I've done is sprayed with distress inks then some brushes and let it dry. Then embossed with wow gold embossing powder. The stamp is from the sparkling poinsettia range from Heartfelt Creations. 

The inside  showing you a pocket in which to add photos. Again digress stains and delusions ink sprays combined with brushos. Using part of the stamp just to add a bit of interest to the corner.

Same as previous except I've added the tree die from the memory box distressed holiday collage set. Again gold embossed highlights in the corner.

Basically same as front cover except have now stamped using ground expresso.

A ground same as before. Oval drawn on to card poinsettias then stamped. Then oval die cut out around poinsettia.tag inserted and made.

Distress paints on card dried stamped then brushed pewter on top and dabbed off. Pocket blue distress inks and brushos and die cut snow flakes from the distressed holiday collage.

Same as before and same die yes I kinda like it. 😀😀

Been distress inks and brushos and delusions ink sprays and the tree die from the same collection. You get four dies in the distressed holiday collage. 

So to make the book 

Inset a 12"x12" piece of card into the punch board follow the instructions. 

Once you have done all the punching and scoring this is what you should have. Turn it around

Trim the side to make tabs 

Use red DSST on tab and stick together.
Lay it on your score board as shown and score at 4" craze and fold to create pocket.

Decorate as you like using your favourite oyster goodies.

Dacing in the rain

Dancing Couple

Hello Peeps

Thought I share this card and the lovely stamp from Stampenodus. I stamped the couple in momento black tuxedo ( covering up the words) and masked it off. Brayred the "beach" in Adirondack Butterscotch. Did the sea in Denim then the sky in sail boat blue. Used various shades of brown distress markers for the "sand".  Remove mask and colour the couple face and hand and woman's dress in alcohol markers
