Stepper Card & Entrepeneurs!

June 21, 2013 at 8:07 am 5 comments


Hey! You’ll have to forgive me- sometimes I can be a bit of a craft snob. There are certain trends and techniques I don’t bother trying because I just don’t like them. This card is totally a case in point.
I was demonstrating at Burley Dam last week and apart from having a rabbit as part of the group watching it was a relatively straightforward demo. In the afternoon after a quick lunch break I came back the store to be asked how I would create a particular type of stepper card.
Confession time.
I said ‘yes, we’ll make one together’
Roughly translated ‘this is the first time I’ve ever made one, lets fumble through it together’.
Obviously there comes a point in most demos where they ask you about things you’ve not prepared and occasionally won’t know.
So we sat down and made a totally different card using the same technique.
Front view looks like this ( excuse the poor photo)

We made it through and they were none the wiser- I did tell them at the end; honesty is the best policy and the were so sweet- they all gave me a round of applause!

I’m demonstrating in Liverpool this Saturday 12-3 at Abakhan. It’s on stamping techniques so do come and keep me company.

This post I also have a lovely entrepreneur to introduce to you. Or as someone my girls know pronounces it ‘en-trop-eneur’! She’s a school buddy and we had a fun trip to the flower market this week to get supplies for her burgeoning new business.
She is starting up a flower business and she was surprised me with a beautiful hand tied bouquet.
Now- these are awkward suckers to photograph with your phone- I can’t do it justice.

Here’s another of the bouquet in a jug

Aren’t they beautiful !
She’s called Sophie and her business is called Blossom and Dill. Truly a fab name. She can create anything ( nearly) for you and as she’s just starting out- I thought us local lads and lasses might send some business her way. You can reach her via this email
She is a truly lovely person and next time before you reach for the garage forecourt flowers give her a call ( email !!).
I love the way she’s put such natural colours together and even the ribbon complements the arrangement. It’s a million miles away from the same old same old but she won’t rip you off either. I was thinking of taking a sneaky pic of her at school and posting it too but she’s fairly close to killing me for embarrassing her already!
One last look at these beauties and I’m off


See you when I’ve survived the weekend ! xx

    Really fun card! Love the colors and all the elements! Might have to give this a try. Gorgeous flowers. Soft and serene – I’d be smiling every time I passed by them. It’s always fun to visit your blog.
