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!

A Chrismouse Present

cypdt1stdec 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Christmas Presents.We have the fabulous Stitchy Bear’s Digi Outlet 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 delightful Merry Chrismouse by Digi Blessings at Stitchy Bear’s Digi Outlet (you get the sentiment with her too!).She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.You know how you see see something and think ‘I must try that!’ but never quite get round to it.Well…this is one of those moments where I actually did.I’ve wanted to make one of these Diaper Fold Pouches for so long!The only problem I had was that you need double sided paper really and I wanted to use these pretty one sided ones.So I went ahead with some thin light coloured kraft card and layered the design paper over the top.Ideally it would be better to use paper as this was just a little too thick and altho’ manageable was quite hard work. Still I think it turned our OK 🙂

I chose some vintage style paper to go with her along with some muted pastel toned Core’dinations cardstock.These have all been cut out with Grand Nestabilities to create an oval easel card.The edges have been distressed and sanded.A length of vintage seam binding has been added under the stamped sentiment,die cut with some Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies.Some punched daisies,with pearl centres, and leaves decorate the top left part of the card.
