Mold photos - part 1

Good afternoon everyone.  Brr! I do not like this cold & by choice I don't think I will go out in it either.  Although I did brave it this morning so that I have could have my hair done - it needed a tidy up.

Anyway.  Mold club photos.  This afternoon I have the first set of photos from their meeting last night & they are of their Show & Tell cards.  The theme was set by Joanna - thank you Joanna - & it was to make a card from a sketch using mainly yellow & grey.

Here is the sketch................

............... & here are the cards;

This is Janet's card with the 2 background pieces in the 2 colours. Some lovely air balloons as the decoration over an embossed background.

Here is Joan's card & this time her 2 background pieces are in 2 different shades of grey. 
Love that little floral embossing folder.
Pretty grey flowers on yellow circles for the decorations.  Ooh - with bling down the side too.

Here is Joanna's version.  Ooh now this is going to test my powers of observation.  I think the grey layer has the die cut edge & is laid over the yellow.    I am sure Joanna will correct me if I have got it wrong.  Love the flowers in the circles too.

Lynn's card has a plain grey section with a patterned paper with yellow dots on it for the other half.
Remember I did not see these cards in the flesh - just the photos like you are seeing them - at first I thought the yellow dots were on acetate over patterned paper.  I wonder.

I love Sheelagh's striped paper in the background & some beautiful grey & yellow flowers & flourish.
A really lovely bright spring type card - something to look forward to.

Yvonne has produced a lovely clean & simple card with 2 different shades of grey for 
the background pieces.  
Aren't those little characters cute?

Now - this is from someone who doesn't normally appear in the Show & Tells

yes - it's ME!

When Joanna sent me a copy of the sketch - I thought perhaps whilst I am taking it easy (?/?) I might be able to join in this & it would also help me to make a birthday card for the club lucky dip birthday card box.
The yellow was white card coloured with my new toy - Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens which I used for the yellow half & the butterflies.  I used a grey Promarker for the other half.

That is the photos for today - more tomorrow showing their project for the evening.

Take care in this cold weather & stay warm.
'Bye for now


  1. Hi,
    It was a masterboard made using my usual messy style! Inks, paints and texture paste, stamps and stencils 😁😁
    The grey left hand side is velum.
    Love to play!!
    Was great to see you looking so well last night, hope your recovery continues a pace😘

    1. Thank you Lynn its always nice to know how something was done.

  2. Your observations are correct Gloria :) The grey piece has a fancy die-cut edge over the yellow layer.
