And there's more...


Oooooo lovely to have the sunshine again, but a bit too hot for working for me !!  

A couple more cards to share today the first is a card and gift all in one.

Such a simple shape to cut out and then add scraps of ribbon and lace !!




The second is more sunshine for you !!  

A fab way to use up strips of pattern paper.



 I made both the cards for Fiskarettes UK fb page, why not pop over and check out it out !!

Oh dear me...


have I been a bad blogger or what !!

Never mind I'm here now....

At long last I have made up my mind to start an art journal and just get on with it !!   It's funny because today I realised I had done one 30 years ago, yes I did say 30 years ago !!   Part of my hairdressing apprenticeship was a day release collage course and a third of that was art.  We were asked to fill a book over the year in our own time with our own art work which I did...hay presto..an art journal !!   Must try and find....

So I will share how I get on with it,  only need to sort out my art book.

Anyhoo got another Fiskarettes UK project to share today " cabbage roses " made using Fiskars squeeze in bloom punch

 And I made a shabby chic card with them. The flowers are made with the reverse side of my backing paper.




You just need to punch and shape 4 flowers, then on one, add glue to each petal, lift up and twist to create the rose bud. then add glue to base and place on second petal lifting up all the petals. Do the same with third and fourth petals. Then gently un fold all petals to create your rose. 

Simple !!

Gnome 1


Remember the fab new gnome ribbons I won from Crafty Ribbons on fb ??

Well here's my first gnome make ...


It's an MDF tag shaped stand which I've made for my borthers friends Birthday next week. He asked me to make a christmas themed card because she is mad about christmas, but I thought it would be nice as a present as well which could be bought out at christmas as a decoration !!

I've made it around the gnome house ribbon at the bottom  ( you can find it HERE )  and tried to match all the colours to that.  The cute christmas gnome is a stamp by Woodware coloured with Spectrum Noir pens, used some bobble trim and purple ribbon as well as frantage for the snow and lots of sparkle on gnomes beard and snowflake !!

Well one thng for sure.....you won't find another one in the shops this christms !!
