New Look Blog and a Silver on White Snowflake Card...

Hello Crafters,

So, it's been an age since I last posted on my Blog so I thought, new look, more posts!

Hope you like how it looks, it took me 4 hours to get it right!

Lot's to tell you before I get on to the card, as you may or may not know, I opened my second Honeypot Crafts store in Sheffield in April this year (which is why I was busier than usual since February really), there was alot to do to get the shop right, decorating, buying new units and getting the look and feel right and, of course, stocking it with all our favourite crafty products too!

I couldn't have done it without my sister, Karen, who is managing this shop for me (thank you!)(and doing a grand job too!), I'm going to see if I can get her to do a post on here with before and after photos etc,..

We have been running workshops in the Sheffield store too (as well as my Nottingham one) so do have a look at the relevant tabs on my website if these would interest you :-)

I've updated the info on the side bars on the blog with my upcoming HOCHANDA shows, Craft Shows I will be exhibiting at and our Craftathons,

If you didn't catch the launch on HOCHANDA of my new 2016 Snowflakes collection, (it sold out!) I will be back with the rest of the collection on July 25th at 8pm (with two brand new paper pads too!)
I absolutely love these stamps, but I am biased as I love snowflake themes for Christmas cards :-)

Here's a quick link to my website for you to see the whole collection: Sentimentally Yours Snowflakes

This is one of my sample cards from the launch show (I did demo it too, but in gold and landscape, still looked gorgeous!)

This is what I used:- (with links to them on my www too)
Double Pierced Rectangle Dies by Sue Wilson
Snowflakes Dies by Sue Wilson
Frosty Swirls Embossing Folder by Sue Wilson
Sentimentally Yours Snowflake Sentiment Borders Stamps
Sentimentally Yours Snowflake Icons Stamps
Sentimentally Yours Large Rectangle Snowflake Frame Stamp
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels - Iced Snow
Cosmic Shimmer Detail Embossing Powder - Silver Shine
(As always, I only ever use Cosmic Shimmer dries clear PVA glue and Perfect Medium for embossing)

The Full Card
Close Up Of The Details
Anyhoo, I think I have rattled on for long enough!

I hope you like the new look blog and I hope you love my Snowflakes stamps as much as I do!

I will be posting again tomorrow, with a chance to win one of my sample cards from my Christmas shows :-)

Happy Crafting!

  10. Love the new look Phill, the card is fab. I've been having a go with some of your blossom stamps today (I'm not very good at stamping yet, I always seem to get big blobs in the middle when embossing, even though I use anti-static and your mat, oh well practice will make perfect I'm sure). Looking forward to seeing all your new cards. :-)

  20. Hi Phil, lovely card as always. Like the new look page. I can't see the extreme left of the page, it's as if it needs to the right abit. It is probably just me - not good on computers!!

    1. ha ha I think it's because of different screen sizes,.. difficult to make it 'general' so I chose the most common one :-)
      Thanks for letting me know though x
