Beautiful Little Lamps!

Well, what can I say?!  I had my last May class last night where we decorated some little cream lamps.  They were gorgeous!  Everyone came up with such different and amazing ideas, I was in awe!

We used the Big Shot (of course!) plus felt and fabrics, the Fun Flowers, Butterflies Bigz dies and Circles and Leaves Originals dies.

What do you think..?

Vicky's bunting inspired lamp (matches the bunting she made at the second class)

Michelle's beautiful lamp (matches her bunting too!)

 Sue's lovely lamp (matches her cushion, using beautiful teal colours)

Aimee's lovely lamp, matches the cushion her mum made for her at last week's class, notice the hanging butterflies...

 Amanda's lovely lamp (matches Aimee's cushion...)

Mhia and Lyn's gorgeous black and red lamp using the Circles die....

 Our Faux Frosting technique card.  Using Cherry Cobbler card and ink, the cupcake image from the retired set Happy Day, watercolour pencils and Blender Pens, Crystal Effects and Clear embossing powder with Pink Pirouette ink.  Mix a drop of ink with a small amount of embossing powder and Crystal Effects until it forms a goop (best word to describe it!)  Add to your image...

Heat with your heat gun, cool for a second or two and repeat twice... Check out the texture (sorry a little blurry, still our old camera in use!)

My lamp...

I had such a lovely evening and was so inspired and amazed by how different they all were!

I also wanted to show you the wedding invitatons I have worked on over the last months for my littlest sister who gets married in Aug.  In the background is a Frost White Shimmer Paint image from the Always Elegant set, with Whisper White satin ribbon and an eyepin straight through. 

 A little album (not Stampin' Up!, one I already had) that I made for Alasdair's nan who has just gone into a Home.  We had a day out with her two years ago at Stratford Upon Avon, so this commemorates that.

 Front cover...
 And a lovely thank you card from Michelle using the Because I Care hostess set, which we both love and some Whisper White satin ribbon along the back.  Michelle has just become my first Level 2 downline! How exciting!

Sorry for the mountains of photos on this post, hope you liked them!  Look forward to reading what you think!
