Leaf Sledging

Hi Everyone, sorry I have not posted for a while; I have had a bad shoulder which has stopped me from stamping and I have also been a bit unwell - possibly due to the medication.

I was asked if I would stand in for Jill today and do her PB & J Video on the Penny Black blog here, Wow what big shoes I have to fill!

Luckily I had a card design that I have been saving that I can share with you all and I was able to persuade my lovely husband to be my hands for the video (sorry it is not of the usual PB & J quality).

Here is the card that he will be demonstrating

For instructions on how to make this card please refer to the video here.

The materials used were:
Penny Black Winter Wonderland  Clear Set 30-083 available here, Let It Snow Clear set 30-086 available here and Clear Skies Mix & Match card stock 10-001 & 10-003 available here.

Other materials include:
Spellbinders Labels One, Fleur De Lys Nesting Squares; Provocraft Snow Dot Embossing Folder, Memento Tuxedo Black ink & Versafine Onyx Black ink, Glossy Accents, Picket Fence Distress Stickles, Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress ink, White & Black Enamel accents, Black fine liner pen,
E31, E93 & E43 for the Hands Feet and Face
G28 & G07 for the Leaf
E47, E37, E33 & E0000 for the Prickles and Body,
R17, R29 & G14 for the Scarf

May I also apologise to Karin as one of her ATC pictures did not load properly on my blog last week, I will share the missing ATC with you all soon.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to be back posting soon.

How pretty - love the snowy effect! I can't seem to find your video though unless I'm missing something? Hope your shoulder feels better soon.

Virginia L. must not have watched the video because Ren did an EXCELLENT job of helping with the stamping! He was her "hands", and now I give him a big hand for his crafty talent (Clap! Clap! Clap!).

I love your calm voice, Cathy, and hope you feel better SOON! The video is great...

Virginia L. said...

This comment is for Erin Glee: I DID watched the video (when I commented) and I know Ren provided the hands for the video!!! I just think Cathy and Ren deserve all the credit. I meant it is not acceptable to apologize for a lesser quality video!! I hope to make this clear.
