Three Little Robins...

Three Little Robins...


Morning everyone, my post today is a quick Christmas card that I made a little while ago now, and because all my Christmas card making stash wasn't to hand, you see during the year it lives in the loft like the Christmas Tree & Decorations because I just don't have the space in my little craft area.





Card Recipe
6x6 white card, Kraft card, Christmas DP (from my scrapbox) doily,
Bakers Twine, silver Card Candi, and die cut sentiment.

As you can see my 3 little robin redbreasts were made using my fingerprint, 

I hope that you like it.

Never mind I'm still thrilled to bits and all this on top of being published inside the brand new "The Crafter's Inspiration" magazine too :)

Pink Passion

Pink Passion....


Hi everyone, what awful weather we are having, I'm just wondering where on earth all this rains coming from :(  today's post is a card that I made using another of Hannah Lynn's beautiful images, I saw Cara Lumley Caswell's card over on the Graphit Challenge Blog and it really inspired me


Card Recipe

6x6 white card, black card, pink core'dinations, first edition design papers,
silver mirri, organza ribbon, silver twine, silver conical studs, glossy accents, 
flamingo liquid pearls, silver bead cap & ab gem



I've coloured the image with the following spectrum noir pens:-
BG1, BG2, BG3, BG4, BG6, BG7, PP5, PP6 & blender

I colourised the first edition papers with the PP6 spectrum noir pen 
to co-ordinate with the image  


I also added glossy accents to the eyes, lips and butterflies and I also
added some liquid pearls to the hair.


To make the ribbon flower I cut 4 pieces of ribbon 5" long and then glued each end of the ribbon
into the centre, I then placed them one on top of the other, added some silver twine loops, and
then glued the gem into the bead cap and place it in the centre.


Hope that you like her
