Fairy-ily Floating :)

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous SLS Lines as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Thought I’d try my hand at a Floating Card using the beautiful Garden Fairy by SLS Lines.She’s been coloured with Copic Sketch and Ciao Markers.Dug out some of my favourite pretty papers to go with her.This is quite easy to make as you basically chop the middle out of the front of the card.I decided to add a little fancy touch by punching the edges.Once I was ready to stick her in place I lined up the loose bottom section and held it with some large paper clips.Didn’t want to mess it up by being wonky!A sentiment some pearls and a die cut butterfly were added for the finishing touches.

I’ve coloured up the super sweet I Love Flowers by Crafty Sentiments Designs  with Copic Ciao ans Sketch Markers.I dug out these fabulous papers and lots of dies along with some distressing for extra detail.The tag sentiment I stamped out and hand cut.Flat backed pearls,frilled ribbon and a little jute twine have been added to embellish.I thought this darling image would be perfect for a Mother’s Day card for my M-I-L (We celebrate in March in the UK,so I was being good and getting ahead!).But I could see this little beauty being used for so many more occasions 🙂

Let sleeping dogs lie

cypdt15thfeb

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous The East Wind as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Here’s the adorable Sleeping Puppy by The East Wind.She’s been coloured with pencils for a furry effect with the obligatory shine added to her nose with a spot of white gel pen 😉 The bed and blanket have been paper pieced with extra shading and details added with more pencil colouring.I’ve made a shaped tent card by only die cutting up to the fold then embossing the rest using some stitch effect dies.The papers and stitch effect dies were chosen for that cosy home feeling and very much in keeping with that sweet snuggly pup 🙂 The ric rac fits with the soft theme and the tag is (supposed) to emulate that found dangling from many a dog’s collar.The twine tied buttons tie in with the sewing undercurrent running through the card.

Now for another drowsy pup :

SAM_0380 (2)

World’s Most Realistic Pyjama Case goes to…

Socks,my naughty,but sweet, Whiffie (my preferred name for my staffie x whippet!) had managed to sneak onto my bed again for a snooze on my pillows.Usually I fold my pyjamas and lay them there but as someone had already taken their place I decided to plonk them on top of her.She briefly opened a lazy eye then carried on snoring!Really,I ask you?!

Me and You is a fantastic New Release at Crafty Sentiments.Just perfect for Valentine’s or even any romantic occasion 🙂 It will be available from Saturday 6th February along with some other exciting  new stamps!All coloured up with Copic Ciao Markers.I created some white chocolate piping on the scrummy chocs and coated them in 3D Crystal Lacquer.Doesn’t show in the pic but I gave her shoes the patent leather look with it too.I made a hanging heart box to fill with my one of my DH’s fave chocolate bars (he only has two!Strange person!).Here’s a little glimpse of the cute heart brads I used to attach the ribbon :

The ribbon is recycled from some wrapped around a pair of PJ’s I gave my DD2 for Christmas last year.

All finished off with a,quite appropriate,sentiment I think and a few flat backed pearls.

I’ve coloured up the super BBKakes Cool Buddy’s from Stitchy Bear’s Digi Outlet with Copic Ciao Markers.You may be able to just make out the 3D Crystal Lacquer on the lenses of their shades 😉 Thought I’d go with a double layer of kraft topped off with a geometric black and white patterned paper for a masculine feel.A few red eyelets added to the corners to tie in with the image and for a splash,but not too much,of colour.The sentiment I made myself in Word 🙂 This is for my DS2’s Birthday in September…I do like to try and keep ahead!
