Elfy Christmas

Morning guys !!

It's wonderful when you start looking for one thing in your crafty stash and find hundreds of other things you had forgotten you had !!

My Elfy Christmas stamps by Lindsay Mason being one of those finds !!

I coloured a white bit of card to match my backing papers with distress inks then stamped the trees and added torn strips of white card for the snow banks adding glitter to them. Stamped, coloured and fussy cut out the elves and mounted them with 3d foam tape. Topped it all off with some bobble trim, snowflakes and big white ribbon bow which I crinkled using a heat gun.

Northern lights

 Been having a play with the northern lights technique peeps.

Started with an A4 sheet of white card and coloured it with streaks of different distress ink colours blending them as best I could. Then cut it into four.

Then tore a strip of white paper with a curvy wave and used it to make the ground line in black ink.

Then stamped a mixture of images in black to create the scenes.

Finishing off with white dots for stars and darkening round the edges. I'm quite pleased with the end results !!

One for the guys !!

Morning peeps !!

If you have popped over from the Fiskarettes UK fb page then welcome to my blog !!

Here's a fun pop up panel card for any guy in your life !!

 Now I hope you have a cuppa as this post is photo loaded !!

You will need to cut and score one piece of card 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" ( this is your card base )
and another  piece of 2 3/4" x 11" , score at 2 3/4"--5 1/2"--8 1/4"

On a piece of  8 1/2" x 11" card draw a line at 5 1/2" down centre. Mark both sides of this at 4 1/4". Now draw a lines across at 2 1/8"--4 1/4"--6 3/8" as in photo.

On the 2 1/8" and 3 3/8" lines mark in at both ends 4", then draw a line up to 4 1/4" marks at top and bottom to make tab shapes.

Cut out all four corner sections as in photo.
Now fold and crease card in half both ways

Turn card round so tab shapes are on your left and right sides. Take centre crease line on right hand side down to meet and line up with centre line and crease diagonally.

 Repeat on other side 

Now push and fold in both tab section to form house shape and crease well.

Open up card. take your scored 2 3/4" x 11" and concertina fold.

With the two folds facing upwards, place in middle at bottom edge.
Add a small amount of glue on right hand tab bottom edge as shown in photo.

Now close card and press.

 Flip card over and repeat with other tab.

Now glue whole piece to inside card base !! should now have one pop up panel card !! 

I have used Fiskars star punch to decorate,  cut the letters and large star using the shape cutter and templates and added some bling !! 

Please share on Fiskarettes UK if you have a go at this card, we would all love to see it !!

If stuck with anything, then just leave me a comment and I'll try to help.

Pink Your Life

At last I have been able to have a play with my new Stampendous Pink Your Life stamps. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them !!

Artist Nicoletta Zanella from the Pink Your Life Design Team has created some wonderful, whimsical characters that are joining the Stampendous Family. We’re so excited to welcome the Whisper …:

I made a background of distress inks and water on a piece of A4 card and then cut in half for both cards.  Most of the cute images have been stamped onto white card,  coloured with spectrum noir pens and then fussy cut out.

The fun sentiments are a set of stamps by Woodware called " You Are".

SSCP102 Mushrooms Perfectly Clear™ Stamp Set:

Watch this space as I have a few other things planned for these fabby doo stamps.....
