Metal Magic

Sir Stampalot are currently harbouring a creative lady! We have the lovely Kim Reygate giving a big helping hand around the place, if you pop in store over the next few days you'll find her beavering away at a make shift demo table in the shop - having just way too much fun!

Kim is teaching a class on tomrrow (thursday) using the walnut hallow metal embossing kit among many other cool new mediums and embellishments.

This is one of the cards Kim's prep'd for thursday's class

It uses a magenta stamp called Joyful Daisies Row (37244J), stamped onto metal with staz-on, embossed with the walnut hallow tools, distressed with alcohol inks and acrylic paints. The flower centres have been emphasised with the cup and ball tool, from the walnut hallow creative metal beginners kit:

I think this is just so cool, really gives a different texture to your cards.
And if you look at the flower cluster in the corner of the card, you'll find the very unusual new embellishment from magnolia - chandelier garland. You can see the complete range of gorgeous colours on our website.

You can also see some of the new iridescent pinstripe ribbon wrapped around the centre piece, and the way Kim has coordinated the scalloped punch edge with the black self adhesive pearls.

If you want to come along and play with such cool products like walnut hallow metal embossing tools and the new chandelier garlands and take home plenty of inspiration, then why not give me a ring (01733 324 007) and get yourself booked on one of the classes tomorrow, Thursday (25th march). We are running the same class at 10am, 2pm and 7pm and still have a couple of spaces available on all sessions. It's just £10 including all materials and refreshments and held in our Peterborough store. Click here for store directions and info.

And you can check out more of Kim's work on her blog - "Kim x"

Hope to see you soon.
