Gone Fishing …



mmmm, now this picture (taken by the Rubbah Elf I hasten to add) just does not do justice to how shiney the embossed circles are, or how beautifully irridescent the fish are in real life….. it’s all really 3-d, but again it most definitely has not come through – this is destined for a Birthday Boy tomorrow, so I am not sure if I can bet a better shot, but will give it a go.

Hippity hopping around is much better, but I am still in loads of pain – this bit of crafting has made me feel way better though.

EDITED TO ADD: Nope try as I might I can’t capture just how this shines in reality – soz about that.

Another 4 x 4 card

made this evening, I’m trying to do a selection of them to go in a giftbox for a friend.
It’s just made using my Teddybella Stamp, Latte Cardstock some Prima Aylssa daisies and….yes, COPICS. Trimmed in the usual way with my flutted blade.
I had a small piece of green pearl paper left over from making an envelope with my lovely Crafter Companion Enveloper, so I added it down the side. Tiny stamp is from Paper Salon, corner is from HA Quatro set stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Purple.
I am really tired tonight, so sorry about the lack of much of a description.

First effort with the Cricut & Cuttlebug (ATC)

I had a spare piece of brown cardstock embossed using the Cuttlebug (textile textures folder), and so I used this down the middle of the ATC, but first swiped some Brilliance Pearlescent Purple over it.

The background was stamped with the Anita’s heart image in Brilliance Perfect Pulmeria.

I cut out the 4 flowers with Cricut George Basics cartridge at 1″ and 1 at 2″. Stamped some of them with Savvy circles background stamp, and left some plain.

From the workbasket I managed to find a perfect piece of dark ribbon, which I tied and threaded through the larger flower.

Hero Arts Gems were added to the centres of the flower.

Lefthand side of Quotations CJ

Made from the same BG Skate Shoppe paper, etc., The quotation is from the SG-me! be happy sheet, stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Purple ink, and matted with pink/lilac colour watercolour paper, co-ordinating BG paper and black glossy cardstock.

I deliberately made sure that the background stamping was done in a mottled fashion to try and emulate fabric, then I just stamped quotation from Aud’s Sentiment sheet (which we have in stock).

Righthand side of the Quotations CJ

Pattern Paper: BG Skate Shoppe, stamped with Non-Seq Dragonfly and flower from Aud’s Cat & House sheet.

Added a library card holder (coloured with various Whispers Dye Inks), and over stamped with the same flower from Aud’s sheet. I added green gelly glaze roll to the centres, and Jo Sonja’s Opalite for a bit of bling (although it doesn’t show up in the picture much).

Inside the library card holder is another tag similar to the sign in one, and if that’s lifted out then there is an image of a dragonfly underneath.

Tag to go with the Quotations CJ

this is the sign in tag for the Quotations UK STampers 2nd CJ.

Plain black tag, Basic Grey Skate Shoppe pattern paper, Anita’s stick ribbon in Pink, purple and green paper flowers, and purple star brad (left over from my ATC Kit swap). It’s just edged with purple pearlescent brilliance ink on the black, and Mossy Stone Whispers Dye Ink on the pattern paper side.

The little black tag at the top is made from shrink, and was left over from a recent Wednesday Stamper challenge.
