Embossing at Crafty Cardmakers & Port Sunny

Goooood Morning!  I'm catching up again lol!  Had a great time at Port Sunny on Saturday and caught up with lots of peeps, thanks for popping over and saying hello :)  As usual I was a menace with my camera so here's some snaps from the day!

Mrs Stampman hiding behind some filigree shapes!

Mr Stampman himself who hates having his pic taken!

Was delighted to find this pair of lovely ladies demoing at Port Sunny - Jo Capper-Sandon and Joanne Wardle who I've known online for many many years so first time in the flesh :)

Some of the Katys Corner Crew

Cath and Chris (Katy's Corner Crew)

Some of Padgate Crafters Group
Some stash from The Stampman!  Can't wait to get stuck into the Princess Carriage at the back there and I thought I'd give the Ferro paints a whirl as Sarah Anderson uses them and I've always been a bit nervous!  And I got some luvvy distress stains I've been playing with all week

Looking forward to the October show!

And here's my creation for this fortnights challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers the theme being Embossing.  I found a really old huge jigsaw piece and triple embossed with moonglow embossing powders using the hero arts fabulous flourish stamp (all from The Stampman)  I just bought the butterfly punch at port sunny which was half the price of the MS one and I bought from Here at the show, not sure where it is on the site to link to it but just ask them, I also got the MS French Scroll punch around the page from there.  I panted the butterflies with gold ferro paint and added a pearl to the centres.

Not sure about the card as its a bit different for me, maybe a bit plain BUT I had a whale of a time making all the bits so I'm happy enough :D

I'd like to enter into...
