A pinch and a punch...

...for missing a post for the first of the month. Yes! I missed posting properly yesterday due to duties at the Papercrafts Festival, which has been a whirlwind of preparation and activity. It has been great meeting so many crafty women over the past two days *big wave* - I can honestly say that I have yet to do a make and take with a man at the fair. Perhaps this is why women are called the fairer sex? Also, a special hello to belle for being so sweet to visit me at the stand.

Stampin' Up! promotions will be starting on the 10th this month - when you click on the Specials heading on the top of this blog, you'll see that markers will be offered for purchase as single items very soon! I'll update the blog with the promotions as soon as they are made public. Also, I'll be sending out my newsletter with all the details on that date too. So, please sign up if you are interested (check out the free subscriptions panel on the left right [don't know my left from my right!] of the page).

This is one of the cards that I have on display when I do my demonstration of the Poppin' Pastels technique at the fair. I can sneak this on now since some of you have seen it already.

Today is the last day of the Papercrafts Festival so poppin' I mean pop in if you can. We have an amazing array of papercraft samples (and I can say this because you should see everyone else's work) and you can even take a photo or two of your favourite pieces. There are also specials just for the show including a Pick-A-Prize for all bundles and if you are thinking of joining Stampin' Up!, you'd definitely want to ask us about it!

Thanks so much, Dani! Your ATCs are really making me wat to join in the INKling swaps :)

Karen said...

Oh wow!! This card is just beautifiul!! I can never ever do that technique so it looks anywhere as nice as yours!! Hmmmmmmmmm any hints lin mei?

Love it and thanks so much for sharing!


Lin Mei said...

Welcome to my, blog Karen and most certainly I have some hints :) For a really bold effect, make sure that your VersaMark impression is juicy. And to make sure that the pastels are applied precisely, use the applicator that comes with the Stampin' Pastels kit or tiny cotton puffs. And that's it!
