Hero Arts Week...Monday

Morning folks...with only 2 days left before I'm off on my travels to Birmingham...the cubbyhole crew are running hither and tither dotting the i's and crossing the t's...last minute checking the lists to make sure it will all be plain sailing at The NEC.  I had a real fun day at The Papeterie on Saturday...big thank you to all the lovely crafters who came to my demo in the morning and the super duper crafty folks who came to play at the workshop after lunch...will share the project later in the week but let's kick off my Hero Arts Week with some of the demo cards using Frame Cuts and Stamps and Timmie's fabulous Distress Inks...perfect for making quick and easy CAS cards...







See you all tomorrow for more.  I've signed up for Timmie's Creative Chemistry 101 Class online which starts today...am I going to find time to play along and will I need a note for the teacher to be excused class when I bunk off to play at The NEC.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: to answer the comment about how I fixed the Bakers Twine..simples...adhere under the flower with D/S Tape...then I put some glossy accents onto my craft sheet and dipped the end of my pokey tool in it to pick up the teeniest amount...dotting it all the way down to fix the stem and bow.

The variations of colour make these look quite different & I'm intrigued by those Frame Cuts - the first is my favourite with the colours & the crisp effect of those swirls.
