Steph had been watching some demos from a new stamp company called IndigoBlu who produce 'quintessentially English rubber stamps' and gave us a demonstration on how to use a new product 'FlitterGlu'. You basically stamp an image using the glue and then you can rub gilding flakes over the image and voila - something spectacular appears! It gave me lots of ideas about how I could incorporate this technique into my mixed media work so no guesses where I'm navigating over to once I have finsihed this post.

Tamsin showed us how to make rosette brooch out of pretty pink ribbon (as shown on her website) and Karen demonstrated her new super dooper die cutting machine. Steph then brought out her Christmas present - a Cricut machine (electronic die cutting machine) and we had fun watching how it works - a very clever bit of crafting kit.
I spent the evening mocking up some more cards ready for the Make and Take next Saturday so great fun was had by all.
