What’s on your desk?

2009-06-26-DSCF0537

this is on mine ………. I had a spare piece of the text paper, and so decided to try out my new Spellbinders Magnetic Plate (only thing is that I have yet to work out how to use it with the CB, and used my Wizard).

The dies stick like glue to the plate, and so it’s really super easy to make a frame.

Once cut out I used specially adapted Alcohol Ink applicator with Cut’n’Dry Foam to ink around all edges, and then stamped out the pretty SU flower girl on Whispers White cardstock and coloured in with Copics.  Added Stickles to the flower heads, and Crackle Accents to the hat, then placed the frame over the image. 

’twill probably look mega pretty on a box, and so that might be the next thing on my list this weekend.

We are excitedly awaiting the return of the Rubbah Elf in this household tonight, as he’s been away on business in Italy, the house is just not the same with out him!

Tomorrow is a busy day, as we’ve got to be at Bluewater early doors for Toodles uniform fitting, and then general food shopping etc., in the afternoon, but hopefully I can make a start on my box – it would possibly make a nice housing for choccies for each of the girls on thir last day at work in September.

Have a good evening, and happy crafting.

Hip…hip…hippity…hop – a lovely Sugar Nellie blog, blog hop…..

welcome to my world …. won’t you come on in …. and have carry on the circle of hopping ……

what a shashing stamp this one is, it’s called “Believe”….I have had a great time working with it, and am the HUGEST Diana Duda fan, so thank you Karen so much for letting me play.  Hop over to Funky Kits to get yours.

Our Toodles is off to Secondary School in September, and there is lots of girly talk around bags for books, etc., and so this little piece will hand on her zipper of the smart and v. trendy black and white bag she has her eye on:

I am such a rubbish photographer that unfortunately, you cannot see just how lovely and glassy this is – there are actually 7 layers of Chiaro-Flo Embossing Powder layered on, and in really life it is sooo shiney.  Tis a piece of stampboard stamped with Momento (Rich Cocoa) and then coloured in with the beloved COPICS which we now carry in store.  The small star image is one by Elzybells which I picked up from StampinCaz a little while ago, as she had fallen out of love with it.

Next up my main card:

2009-06-20-DSCF0515

 

 

It’s a bit bright, but this sweet lil lady can take it!

  1. Piece of Kraft 12×12 cardstock cut in half to make a 6×6 card.
  2. Cut a piece of  Sage Green Medium Prism cardstock to fit within that, but leaving a large border of the Kraft around the edge.
  3. Cut a piece of Doodlebug pink pattern paper and then use the SU Edge Distressing Kit to rough things up a little.
  4. Using white Prism cardstock cut the largest Labels 4 die out.
  5. Stamp on “Believe” stamp by Sugar Nellie and colour in with Copics, and edge with Dark Moss Fluid Chalk Ink.  Mount on the card to one side with 3d foam pads
  6. Take a white silk flower and colour with green and pink copics, and mount on the lefthandside of the lable die.
  7. Cut a White Cardstock panel large enough to extend just over the green panel and scallop punch the edge with SU punch.
  8. Edge with Dark Moss Fluid Chalk Ink.
  9. Tie a piece of brown gingham ribbon slightly up from the bottom, and mount the panel on the card.
  10. Cut out a swirl motiff (Provocraft) from white cardstock and colour in the swirl in dark pink copice and the heart in lime green copice and mount on the card.
  11. Sprinkle liberally with white pearls, and some coloured in BV23.
  12. Decorate the insides and rear of card – not done this as I had to get up at 5 to finish this off – nothing like cutting it fine hey!

Deepest Sympathy (Rose Tapestry BIU-017)

2009-06-13-rosetap-card

This is the first time I’ve got to play with the new Rose Tapestry Sheet (BIU-017), and I am having heaps of fun with it.

2009-06-13-rosetap-cardinside

I used a portion of the Rose Tapestry 6×6 main stamp as well as “Deepest Sympathy” and the “Rose Leaves” quotation on the inside.

I deliberately ran a bit of extra Versamark around some of the edge of the “Deepest Sympathy” stamp so that it picked up some of the Galactic Gold EP and gave it a slightly distressed look.

Serendipity

2009-04-24-scrap

 

I was waiting to collect some cooked rubbah from the Stamp Elf, when I noticed a nice piece of textured offcut in the scrap bin, so sneaked in with the new sheets and mounted it on a spare piece of UMount …… perfect frilly texture stamp that will come in handy for loads of things.

Off to The Chicken Shack today

where my lovely friend Caz is doing an SU demo.  Hopefully, I will also do a quick Toodles & Binks demo if there is time.  I fully intend to travel light, which will be a first (and we shall see if that is a true statement when the time arrives for me to leave!).

I said yesterday that I would upload the card, and voila ………..

2009-04-16-dscf04011

Although from the angle that I photographed it, you can’t really see how lovely and shimmery the ArtQuest Watercolours are.

It was a frustrating end to the day yesterday, as we’ve run into some technical issues with the new Sally-Ann Hancock Stamps, and have had to push them back to Priority Ordering – this is a pain as they are proving very popular – hey ho, they will be worth the wait, and will be despatched on first come basis – it won’t take up long to catch up the orders as the Rubbah Elf has promised to work through the night if necessary to cook sufficient.  I won’t bore you with the details, but suffice to say manufacturing rubber stamps, can occasionally be a bit like a long night shift in the maternity ward.

Supplies List

  • SU Roses in Winter set
  • SU Circle of Friendship
  • Soft Grey cardstock
  • Doodlebug Sugar cardstock in pink (Stamp Galaxy)
  • US ArtQuest Watercolours
  • Small white self-adhesive pearls
  • SU inkpads
  • SU scallop circle punch
  • Creative Imaginations round circle punch
  • Green stitched ribbon (Stamp Galaxy)

Copics Colour Challenge – #8

2009-04-08-dscf0392

as Toodles and Binks are now going to be sponsoring the challenge on a regular basis, and this week was our first week, I just had to take part, as for the last two weeks I’ve got as far as actually colouring in something, and then not having time to come through!

I decided I would use Chickadee (RRP-010), and make a small Easter Card for the Inlaws.

I used my large shaped label nestie as the basis for the card (but just staying short of the top, so you end up with a folded card) and then cut out the same shape again in pattern paper and lined it up just at the bottom.  I will try and do a quick tutorial of that in the week if I can.

Supplies List

My I have to say so many of you are loving both Chickadee and Amelie Bunnykins.

Easter Wishes Tag

2009-04-05-dscf0391

 

Just a quick tag, courtesy of Marks & Spencer – I raced in yesterday to grab a few bits and pieces (as Tooldes is staying with her Grandpartents for a week, and I am away on non T&B business).

M&S have now started to use a lot thick cardboard tags, and thread instead of yucky plastic ones, and the tage was just too nice and thick to throw away, so I altered it to hang on Toodles Easter present for next week.

Supplies:

A quick how to:

  • Cut two small pieces of Amy Butler pattern paper just large enough to cover the pre-printed product details on both of the tags, but leaving some of the lovely pre-printed scroll work on the top and edges of the back.  Run the Gingerbread ink pad around the edges and adhere.
  • Layer up the brown and yellow silk flowers, hold together with a brad, and adhere at bottom righthand side at the front.
  • Tie a piece of pale green silk ribbon around the tag, and secure in a knot at the front.
  • Cut of the middle tag from the nested tag dies in white cardstock.
  • Stamp the “Easter Wishes” from the Chickadee stamp in Old Olive Ink, edge the tag with Pretty in Pink Ink
  • Cover the tag with versamark ink, and sprinkle on some SU Heat’n’stick powder, heat with heat gun until it melts, then sprinkle on some of the SU Crystal Glitter, shake off the excess and heat again to set.
  • Adhere the tag with 3-d foam pads just above the flower at an angle (adding a small gold brad).
  • Tie the pink fringed ribbon through the tag hole, but leave the lovely silk thread that was tied to the garment in place.

I get all my SU bits and bobs from my lovely friend Caz.
