I know it has been a while and regular posting hasn't been consitiant. I've been so busy with orders, craft fairs and sick children :( I've finially managed to find a moment to share my exciting news! I've been asked back as a Fiskarette for Fiskarettes UK for a four month term, which started this month!
I am sharing two cards I have made using the beautiful Fiskars AdvantEdge Winter Frost Punch and Snowflake Punch.
Today I am sharing
a Bow Holder I have made for my Daughter. I was very pleased to be able
to match the 25mm Grosgrain Ribbons to the colours of the paint my
Daughter wanted. I used the Lilac and Shocking Pink ribbons fromCrafty Ribbons!
I had so much fun painting this and adding gold glitter to make it sparkle. My Daughter is so happy with this and an added bonus is we keep the bows and bobbles tidy!
Today I am sharing another review using Hunkydory
products that I have been given to work with. This one is a little different from the kits as it is a die set with co-ordination card to make some cute Z-fold cards using the Set the Scene Moonstone Dies.
I decided on the Christmas TownDie and Z-Card set as I love the Christmasy feel of the illustration with the red Post Box, Christmas Tree and Father Christmas with his Reindeers in the sky!
So when I first opened the z-card packet I thought no way is this blurry picture going to work! But I had watched the video and I knew there was a bleed tolerance so that the dies should cut the image out fine. To my amazement this worked and the crisp embossed and die cut image appears like magic!
all these cards took was three passes through the die cutter and some
poping out and folding! So quick and easy, brilliant for making quick,
only thing I added was a rectangle of acetate in order to make my
Father Christmas appear to be flying in the air! My Daughter thought
this was great and she had a lot of fun poking the small paper parts out
of the tree and the windows!
The Card pack comes with three different colour themes of the same design and six cards can be made in total. I love how well thought out this design is with the back having a decorated space for the greeting.
When I get a chance (lol) I am going to die cut some plain card and colour my own scene in to re-create my own version but I know this will take longer to make. I might get my Daughter on the case as she loves colouring and these would be special cards for the family! I think I'll add more z-fold card blanks to my shopping list and maybe the other sets as well! I can imagine these to be really popular sellers and also perfect for family Christmas cards :)
Thanks for stopping by - and I have one more kit to review! Hopefully the baby will get over his cold soon and I can get some crafting time in! I'm currently snuggled with him whilst writing this! Hugs,
Just a quick post to share my Hunkydory / For the Love of Stamps cards made using the new Moonstone Dies - Shadow Box! These are on Create and Craft today at 7pm. There was a show at 12, which will be available on catch up as well!
Sorry I haven't got time to describe the makes, I've got a very poorly little one who needs hugs!
