The Wee Wooden Tray

Hi everyone!

Something different from cards to share today… I altered a wee wooden tray for an upcoming workshop.. this is the before picture πŸ™‚

tray-3

If you would like to decorate one with me I will be at Stampers Grove on Saturday 10th December from 11am till 1pm. Β  they are perfect for that last minute Christmas gift, you can paint/embelish , then fill them with a whole host of festive goodies, wrap up in cellophane and you have a perfect tailor made christmas gift!

Here is the one I made today, this would be perfect filled with fruit teabags, coffee, and homemade shortbread biscuits..

There are a lot of different things incorporated in this tray, I gilded the edges in gold leaf, Stamped and heat embossed the sides with embossing powder and lined the inside and sides with a gorgeous patterned paper.. the handles are bound in gorgeous twine

I also took a picture outside, it is amazing how lighter it looks in natural lighting πŸ™‚

Just Breathe…

Hi everyone…

I nearly missed making a card tonight…

It was such a lovely evening, after dinner we took the dogs out on a huge big walk and didn’t get home till after 9pm..

So tonight’s card is another quickie.. using one of the star embelishments that I made last week πŸ™‚ I have to say they are coming in handy! Β I know I have only made 2 lots of embelishments and I need to make some more to build up a wee stock.. this week hopefully.

Sometimes we need to sit down and just breathe, and this was my inspiration for tonight’s card. Β We lead such a busy life these days that we sometimes forget to sit down for 5 minutes and relax

Just Breathe

supplies list :-

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour card for the card base ( I love the thickness of it)
  • Cream cardstock
  • Lil Inker Designs stitched square dies
  • Tim Holtz Self adhesive words.. small talk
  • Blue and Green Sequins
  • Light Green Polka Dot Patterned Paper
  • Sizzix Primitive Stars Die
  • DCWV Christmas Stack of Corrugated Card
  • Double Sided Tape, Foam Tape and Acrylic Glue

Be Happy, Be Bright, Be You!

Hi Everyone..

I have a lovely wee cream and pink card to share with you today…

I missed 3 days crafting last week, due to birthday’s and I had a real sore neck/back, glad to report the chiropractor fixed me yay!

However, this has made me a little behind with making stuff, recording videos and blog posting, but I will get there.. there is no real rush.

For the card today, i used up the leftover strips of patterned paper from when I made the rosettes the other day, I glued them down to a sheet of cardstock to create a nice shabby chic panel for this card

be happy

  • Daler & Rowney water colour card for the base tomake a 5.5″ square card
  • Glitz Designs beautiful Dreamer patterned paper
  • Leaf / Branch Die
  • Lace
