I said last week that I intended to get some of my UFO's made into cards, and at the very least, most of them are now matted & layered. A few are now completed cards.
These need a sentiment adding, which is why some have a longer piece of backing card.
These, using Honey Doo stamps, need finishing off. I've got the vellum flowers to go on top already cut out.
The scenic card is finished, the Teasels needs a sentiment.
Same here, just waiting for a sentiment to be added.
I was fixing a bracelet the other week, and had so much trouble threading a needle with the elasticated Crystal string. So I did a bit of an internet search, and found these.
The eye is like a needle threader, which will make things so much easier.
Now, I did say I wasn't going to start anything else until I'd cleared my UFO mountain. However, I saw a fabulous card on Facebook, which basically uses a laminator to attach hot foil to stencil paste. So, I got some foil ordered- I'd not got any biggish pieces- and I've done up a batch of stencilled images, ready to give this a go.
This is a handful of the pieces I've done, they need to dry overnight, then I can try it out. I've also since read that hot transfer foil can be applied with a hot iron, so I'll be testing that out too. There should be a post about it towards the weekend.
I'll be really pleased if this works as well as the project I saw, it means my laminator will get some extra work. At the moment it gets used to laminate sheets to store my stamps on, other than that it just sits on the shelf.
Right, I'm done then. Be round to see you all a bit later. And thanks to everyone for the birthday messages, and cards for us both. Much appreciated.
As Doug was working on Monday night, we went out Saturday night for a meal. Did our exchanging of gifts when he got up Monday afternoon.
