My little crafting world....

Hi all
I'm a complete craft addict! I have a small business called Surrey Crafts teaching craft workshops from my studio in Esher, Surrey and at venues around the country. I teach mixed media, decorative painting, card making and papercrafts, jewellery making and creative embroidery classes.

Crafty hugs & stuff

Here is the card I made for my Daughters 18th birthday on Tuesday. So many different techniques from stamping to stencilling, wire work and textiles, and as usual the Acetate nearly got the better of me! Tutorial below:

Covered some mount board with an old book page, painted it with pink and white paint and used a mask to stencil the puzzle shapes with white pearl acrylic paint (my Daughter will do a 1000 piece puzzle in two days!)
I shaped some jewellery wire, glued on some pearls, added the charms to chain and threaded it through some lace.
I cut out the number 18 and the words on my Cricut mini, added clear Versamark ink and embossed them with Frantage embossing enamels.  I added the number to the mount board and the words to acetate, which I scored and folded around the mount board to create a raised level. I then added this whole section to a piece of white card, which I'd stamped with roses and again embossed with Frantage. All papers were edged with gilding wax. Finally I attached these to the front of a strong card blank made from Centura Pearl 300gsm.
Thanks for looking.
