THANKS FOR BEING THERE FOR ME

Hi, thanks for stopping by...


I cut a piece of brilliant white foundation card by Creative Expressions to create a 5" square and leaving a small boarder.  Using the Petite Striplet Die - Jubilee (without the outer cutting die) by Sue Wilson for CE, I die cut 3 strips.  I then attached a piece of double sided adhesive to the back of this and using Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter in Golden Sand, Silver Chrome and Rose Copper I sprinkled one of each colour over the strips, burnishing in with each application.  I can not emphasise enough how beautiful this glitter is!  It is very fine and does not 'fall off' the card.  The colours are so beautiful.  I adhered this to a mat of silver, black and white foundation card and added mounting foam to the back for dimension and then positioned it to the final mat of white, silver, black and white card.
I stamped the sentiment using one of the stamps from the Live, Laugh, Love Sentiment Range by CE onto white card, I then attached another piece of double sided adhesive  sheet onto the sentiment, removed the backing and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow over it.  This was then placed into position on the card and to finish I add butterflies, 2 small and 1 medium that I also sprinkled Diamond Snow onto them as well as adding small, flat backed pearls to the spine of each butterfly, using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear PVA Glue.

PICK UP YOUR TROUBLES... AND GO FOR A WALK

Hi, thanks for stopping by...
Today is my brother's birthday and as he is an avid walker I could not resist using these set of stamps by Woodware!
The white base card measures 9.5" x 8.5" and I added a layer of black then white foundation card.  To the bottom right I stamped a sentiment from one of the corner sets, designed by Phill Martin for Creative Expressions using a Stazon Jet Black Ink Pad.
I cut a smaller piece of brilliant white foundation card and using another set of stamps by Woodware I stamped the soles of the boots again with the same Jet Black Ink Pad by Stazon and stamped 'off the page'.  I adhered this onto a thin black mat.
I cut another piece of the brilliant white foundation card and using two of the sentiments that are part of the set, stamped onto the card, again using the same ink pad.  To add a little texture I then embossed this piece of white card with the 'Falling Snow' Embossing Folder by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.  I adhered this to a thin black mat and added that to the centre of the card.
On taupe foundation card I stamped the back pack with Clear Perfect Medium Ink Pad then applied Metallic Copper Embossing Powder by WOW and heat set it.  I inked a 'smoothie' with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and coloured  the back pack.  I coloured the zipper  and studs using a silver paint pen then recoloured the studs with a black marker, but will change that and add the smallest black flat back pearls as I think it will be more affective!
The sleeping bag was coloured using the new Chameleon Pens, as were the boots.  I fussy cut around the images, added mounting foam to the top and bottom and adhered to the card

I hope by tomorrow this annoying hiccup has gone

WORKING CANDY MACHINE

Hi, thanks for stopping by...
Due to the lack of internet over the past few weeks I am unable to do the
'Tuesday Tutorial', and I apologise for this.
So today I am showing you 2 Working Candy Machines that I made for two gorgeous
young girls who also happen to be sisters ...


The working candy machine is designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and, with a little imagination, there are so many designs you can make.   Be prepared to see the odd one or two pop up on my blog over the coming months! LOL.
I used the girls' favourite colours to cover the base card, and in Tilley's machine the candy is actually purple to match the purple base, although it does appear to have more of a chocolate brown look whilst Daisy's is filled with pink candy to match the pink base.  As the girls were getting these at Easter I die cut a little bunny and gave the feet, ears and eyes a little colour and adhered them to the base as if they are looking up at the candy.
These machines are also refillable too and it's quite fun turning the handle and seeing candy drop out of your greetings card!
The main items, to make the candy machine, are shown below
