Happy Easter, Happy Spring

With the worst of our winter behind us we can hopefully look forward to spring & summer. Here's a cheery card I've made using Stix2 die cut flowers & birds & the brand new shade of gingham card. I've re shaped the die cut flowers a little, given them some shaping & coloured them with some inks.

Die cut floral wreath

Hi everyone here's a workshop project I'm going to be doing on my Stix2 demo day at Somer Craft Addix on Saturday 24th March. I've cut 2 large rings from A4 craft card & stuck them together to form the base of the wreath. I've them taken pink & lilac die cut flowers from Stix2 & edged with ink before giving them a little shaping. The centres of the flowers are made from hot glue & clear plastic beads which have then been coloured with an alcohol pen. the little green "leaves are pieces of Stix2 paper raffia (white) which I've coloured with ink.

Happy Mothers Day

Time to create a special card for a special lady-Mum!! I've used a Stix2 8 x 8 white card blank for this one & have folded the front back on itself in half vertically. I have also used the new "Melt & Mold" foam which I've given a generous coating of Stix2 Rainbow Iridescent glitter.
Here's all the other great products I've used

New Products from Stix2 2018

Here's a range of samples featuring the new products from Stix2 2018.
We're loving the new Melt & Mould foam which is adhesive on one side so that you can add embossing powders, glitters & beads. While it's warm you can then mould it into great shapes in the palm of your hand.

We will create a very different background using Brushos & then you get to paint your flowers with them too- oh & there may be a surprise product for a touch of sparkle!  And if we’ve time we’ll run through a few more background techniques too….but that might be another workshop!!
