On Stage Swap

Just back home from a lovely weekend away with a lovely bunch of crafters.
We attended the Onstage Stampin'Up! convention with 450(ish) demonstrators held in Solihull, West Midlands.
A very popular thing to do at these conventions is to swap with other demonstrators, so here was my swap which I swapped with 50 other demos (which means I have 50 other works of art in return)!
I used the very very versatile "Lovely As a Tree" stamp set stamped on grey board in black ink and quickly clear embossed them.  I then sponged Night of Navy & Wild Wasabi  ink across the board, then put Dazzling Diamonds (of course there has to be glitter somewhere)  on the trees.

I hope the recipients liked their swap!
Thank you for stopping by today,
Take care

Winter Jar - Hometown Greetings Edgelits

Well the weather has certainly changed hasn't it?  I am freezing today.
Just thought I would share with you one of the projects that the ladies at my all day crafty class enjoyed making.
How very versatile the Hometown Greetings Edgelits really are.  I have seen many many projects using them and this was my take on them.
I  managed to purchase these fabulous little tea light jars which were shouting at me to use with the edgelits.
I die cut the little scenes, covered them with embossing paste and dusted them with glitter.
The biggest challenge was getting the edgelits to stand upright in a round (ish) jar.  All I did was pad the bottom of the jar with cotton wool which forces the card against the jar. Perfect.   
Not all that impressive in the daylight.

Little decoration on the side
Really really impressed at night when the LED light shows the edgelits in all their glory.

We had real fun making this and I believe the ladies were eager to get to the little shop I purchased these from,  to get their own to make some presents for their friends and family!

Don't you just love this time of year
Well, thank you for stopping by today.
Have a great weekend.
Take care
