Fairy Shaker Birthday

Hello Crafters

Well yet again I cannot believe that another weekend is almost over, ever feel like ‘Stop the world I want to get off!’ I feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, ‘I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!’

However I have completed my lesson kits and dates booked, so *excited* I am! It will be so much fun departing knowledge to great people whilst doing something I love, sigh…..meanwhile back on the gravy train, life must go on! Indeed it does, so I have just a little card to share with you. It was made for my great niece (oh I do sound old), but again those little fairies came out to play and help me make her smile.

I used Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends for the main characters, Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Large for the window, Cheery Lynn Horizon Fishtail Banners for the sentiment.

Inside the window, Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloudsย and Mama Elephant Grassy Trio.

The background papers were from The Range.

Short and sweet tonight, but hopefully I will have more time to chat next week, beside Poldark has just started, and a woman has to do what a woman has to do! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a wonderfully crafty week!

Fairy Christmas Magic!

Hello Crafters

Firstly let me start by saying that I am sorry I haven’t been to visit you all that much this week in the world of blogging, but I have been soooo busy making card kits and getting paperwork prepared ready for my first lesson. As a perfectionist, this is a task that I want to be right, and now I have the first kits all together, I can relax a bit, it is just a matter of setting a date now, phew!

I did have a quick play last Sunday, as I purchased a new set of stamps and dies and have been itching to try them, as always ๐Ÿ™‚ I also had a tinker with a few bits, but I only have time to show you one today, but I will share the rest, promise!

As the title suggests, yet again Christmas was the theme and I was delighted that these little ladies displayed at their finest! The stamps and dies used were Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairy Friends and coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens. I added stickles frosted lace to the snow and I tried to show it in the photo, so hope you can see it. It does capture the snow quite well. The Card Base was Creative Expressions Double Pierced Background Rectangles and the label was made using Die-namics Stitched Fishtail Tags Stax. The craft papers were from the range.

So there you go, just a quick little card share today, and I am doing my best to catch up with all the posts, just one thing? How on earth do you manage to fit all those posts in and full time work, and look after the house? You guys are my hero’s!!!

Pop Up Santa

Hello Crafters!

Hope you are enjoying the Sunday sunshine. I have been reading about the World Card Making Day and thought I need to share a card too.

This one was my first pop up and it happens to be a Christmas card. I haven’t yet bought any of the dies that make it so easy, so this was all worked out by yours truly, so it isn’t perfect but it is unique!

Now I started writing out how to make this, but to be honest, it is so complex the best thing I would say is, just have fun experimenting and finding your own way of how to put these things together. I didn’t find it hard, but it was time consuming and fun at the same time, as learning something new is always fun! Certainly made a few boobs along the way, but all are valuable lessons!

The best thing about this was putting together little ol’ Santa here. He was a real pleasure and must admit, made me have a giggle or two on a few stories I remember about Santa and the children! This die is from Marianne Designs – Eline’s Santa. Well worth having in your die stock, just a happy fella, and there are other put together creatures, that I will be investing in at some point.

The fence on this had me questioning if I had lost my marbles making it a bit complicated but it worked in the end. The mountains in the back were just randomly cut from brown card and distressed with Picket Fence and then a gel pen to mark some features, and I was really please with how it looked!

All in all, much experimenting and loads of fun.

Have a lovely crafty Sunday.
