Here is a taster of what's in store on Create & Craft :D and herehere and here!
If you can't watch it live then record it.....:( I have to record it as taking my dog Dave to the Vets (to see my old boss in West Yorkshire, he's a bit of a whizz with orthopaedics) we're a bit concerned about Dave's hips, probably just  a bit arthritic but he's not that old, about 6 ish (we rescued him from Cyprus so that's just an estimate!)

Ok now to my 'Soozie Tooseday' card

For this MAN card I used the fab set Heavy Metal £12.99
and the Handy hints set £12.99 (you can use these for so many different cards, they're great)
After stamping the sentiments and heat embossing in wow primary ebony around  the border of a white piece of card stock, adding nuts to the corners, i mounted this onto a blank black card.
Then heat embossed in 'heat it up' silver sparkle with the metal plate background (this can be purchased separately HERE) on black card stock and it looks really metallic, a very effective looking background, love it :D, this was then mounted on to silver mirror board from creata.

Stamped and heat embossed the spanner and nuts, happy birthday, cut a couple out & mounted again on mirror board and added foam pads to give dimension.
Put it all together and I think it's rather metallic and effective :D

You can either purchase the sets individually OR buy those 2 sets and get the Painted Wood set FREE!
With the Tool time Multibuy deal for £25.98 saving a whopping £12.99!!!
I will definitely be making many more cards with these stamps! 
These sets are a MUST for Man Cards!

Well guys that's all for today guys
Much Love

  11. Thanks for the wonderful comments, colouring in Edgar and Clara was the hardest part using Distress Stains is easier than Marker for watercolour technique. I love the corset card actually it was freebie on July issue of Craftstamper which drew me towards Visible Images stamp.

  12. That corset really is wonderful and perfect for our Dressform Challenge. Thank you for being soartful with us!
