Party paws!

Today I want to share an acetate bag  and matching mini album I've made using some Party paws goodies. The album measures about 4" square and has 8 acetate and 8 coredinations pages which I've embellished with some elements from the party paws embellie kit. The bag is 5" square and about 11/2" deep. This would make a lovely gift for a special birthday or with a few changes for a new mum or gran to use as a brag book.

Strawberry faerie

Today I have a gate-fold easel card to share with you.

This is my second stamped image, the strawberry faerie, and I've used some elements from one of the card companions as well as a sentiment to complete my card.

Unfortunately this was the first image I coloured and I got so involved in getting the colours how I wanted them that I completely forgot to take note of which ones I was using.

Sweet violet frame

I've another frame card for you today, from the faerie poppets cd. I've printed onto Neenah card and sprayed the frame with gold spray n sparkle. I used some trim from my stash to decorate the frame this time. It really doesn't take much to finish these off and I'm happy to say there were no accidents this time! ;)

Elfin lanterns!

I saw a similar idea to this the other day and since this little fella, which is actually one of the notelets from the Faerie Poppets Cd, has an elfin lantern what better way to use him than it turn him into a gift of pretty tea lights. The cylinder is an up cycled toilet paper inner. I used a cap from a soft drink bottle for the inside at the bottom but adapted part of a second core to make the lid so it would fit down inside the container and around the tea lights. It's not the neatest job in the world but its not too bad either! It's just something a little bit different.

Angel wings frame.

I expect you all thought I'd got lost but I've had an awful cold and although I've been doing bits and pieces of colouring and cutting I've not really been getting things finished. This is a lovely little frame  picture from the soon to be launched Angel Wings CD by Crafters Companion. I used collall 3D decoupage gel to get plenty of height to the layers. The frame itself is glittering with iridescent spray and sparkle. I created the circular frame using a Marianne die and some gorgeous Centura  pearl card stock. Gosh I love how beautifully it embossed!  Can you keep a secret? I had to put the butterfly on there because I accidentally tore the frame whilst assembling it! I know you won't tell on me! Lol.

A Morning Stroll.

This is a CASE of a card I saw on the crafters companion blog. I copied the idea of the cut out frame. The orange layer was embossed then cut using a scalloped rectangle die. I also liked the idea of the distressing around the coloured image. I chose autumnal colours for the girl and used Spectrum Noir pens.

A perfect day

I made this card a couple of weeks ago as a sample for Heather in Doodlecraft. I used a crafters companion embossing folder and spectrum noir pens. I think my colouring might be improving?

Pop up frou frou

This card was made fairly quickly yesterday. I used a craft knife to cut around the top portion of the card so that it would pop up when folded into the easel position. I coloured it with my spectrum noir pens but as usual got so involved that I didn't take note of which colours I actually used!
