Bad Blogger!

Blimey, can't believe i'm so behind with keeping you guys up-to-date with the happenings here at Sir Stampalot. Spent last night sorting all the photos out so i should be able to keep the photos and card ideas coming.

Firstly, i just have to show you some of the cards Louise Molesworth demo'ed here at Sir Stampalot Central on Valentine's day - Saturday 14th Feb.

Louise so enjoyed herself demo'ing and by the sounds of things, those who were able to come along, watch and support us, had a wonderful time too.

Here's Louise in action...

and here's some of the cards up close...

Tilda with Hearts is definitely one of the more popular stamps designs from the Tilda Jingle Jangle collection. I love the flicky-up hair style.

Louise has also used the Goblin Branch to enchance the corner motif. The use of nested circles and scalloped circles is just so cool with a cute small heart brad to enhance the centre.

I think this is one of the first stamps from the Tilda collection that i remember Louise going for - Tilda with Bird.

Louise has decoupaged Tilda's bird to make him stand out. Like many of Louise's creations, Tilda and Bird are coloured with versacolor cubes (applied with a paintbrush) and then sometimes clear embossed to give a glazed finish, depending on the image and desired finished effect Louise is after.
The circular stamped greeting used in the centre of the motif is THE very versitile Hero Arts stamp - "It's Your Day" (great for any ocassion).

I just love the attention to detail Louise has to finishing the cards. Just look at this little shrink plastic cherries from the Tilda collection, and there's that stamp again - "It's Your Day":

and this cupcake case (from the Hero Arts set CL158) has been decorated with just some left over circles punched out of cardstock - so effective yet soooo simple. Along with the glaze used on the cupcake icing and cherry:

Louise sure knows how to do some really unique shaker cards.

And cream shrink plastic is definitely Louise's signature, just look at this embellishment stamped with these cool candles from the Hero Arts cupcakes stamp set and shrunk down.

Thanks for a fantastic demo Louise - watch this space for another Louise demo day coming soon.....
