A Little Washi....



Hi, just a quick post tonight to show you this pretty little card I did today. 





 A simple layered base with some monochrome paper from the stash drawer. Then I stamped 'Inspired by Banksy' Love Hill stamp(minus the balloon) and using a Tonic die cut it out then layered onto 2 layers then attached using foam pads for height ...

 
Added a length of tape down the folded edge and bottom.
I had a bit of fun then with a kebab stick and some white ink. Painted the stick with the ink, cut it into 3 then attached a piece of Washi tape folding it over and cutting a 'V' in the end.
 Used a hot glue gun to fix them into place and topped it off with a paper flower...

Thanks for dropping by, hope you like it...

Butterflies and Suga Pop equals...

...a very happy Sam!!!

I have been playing with the Sugapop Range from Kaisercraft and here's what I made...

A cute little memory folder, I haven't added pictures yet, whoopsie - I will have to have a day out to create some perfect ones!

The front cover from a Fruit Tingle sheet of the Sugapop range with some bunting cut from the Rock Candy sheet and then some great little Butterfly embellishments


Looking down over the top 

Inside...Some more cut outs from the Cotton Candy sheet (handcut) You can just see on the inside of the back cover their that there are some dots - these have been inked through the Dots Inkables Template you can view the full range of these here

More pics from inside - a little Owl - cut from the Sherbert Patterned Paper with a tag inside the pocket

I had great fun playing with this, and honestly is it finished, for now yes but there's a very good chance I will find something else to pop onto it because the reality is - are we ever finished.....for me it's a no, well until the ink has run out anyway.  This is also available as a class so if you would like to take part get in touch on the home page.

Hope you like it.

Mirror Mirror...


At the crop this week Pauline Butcher was telling Bev all about Inchies, Twinchies, Munchies (actually made that up) but the other two are real and I believe there are a few others. Little bits of artwork 1" x 1" and 1.5 x 1.5 so though I might have a play myself and this is what I came up with...



I'm really happy with it. A cheapy wooden mirror from a boot sale (courtesy of Bev) and all I've done is ink it up with Distress Inks, I tried using the Dylusions but they just sat on top of the wood so should you want to use them best to give your wood a right good sanding down first. 
Now to the Inchies. Mine are just 1" squares of chipboard and this time I was able to blitz them with my Dylusions in matching colours to the mirror frame, wafting the different colours diagonally so they blended with no harsh edges. Once they were dry I stamped them with the Inspired by Da Vinci stamp 'Script'.
Then got my fine liner pen out and doodled some leave's across the top corner highlighted them with a white pen and gave them a bit of extra colour with distress ink.
(pity it doesn't show up to well)
Finally stamped the BEAUtanicals Teasels stamp at the bottom...


Really hope you like it...

p:s there is a white card on the mirror as when I took the first picture all 
I could see was me, so I had to save you from that trauma...

So I was looking around ...

...and look what I found

Pretty Pretty things

This is made by Jason Wilkes and I found it on the Crafters Refuge Page on Facebook  I like the Distressed effect, I would use Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads here, nothing quite like them for this!


Now I can't remember if this has been on the blog already ( I know I didn't blog it so as far as I am concerned it's fair game.  The lovely Pauline made this for us and you can view it here on facebook - look at the perfect blend in the colours and naturally the Tinman is awesome from our Wizard of Oz Range.


So anyhoo just a little short one tonight as I am off to play with my Sugapop Paper from the Kaisercraft Ranges. So here I go - I shall report back sometime soon, I wonder how messy this will get....

Have fun guys

What will you carry in yours....

... Your suitcase that is

You guessed it Julie (or mum as I call her) has been at it again, I have to say this is an absolutely exquisite piece of work.  So Gentle and delicate, absolutely lovely.  To think it started life like this

Papermache Suitcase Large size 25.5x20x8 cm

They are available in two sizes which you can find here

Here is a close up of the bow to the corner with a little Cherry Blossom in the centre, fortunately there was one to co-ordinate with the paper she used from the Kaisercraft Range - 75 Cents

A Butterfly cut from the Patterned Paper



Lots of Paper Flowers in a spray across the corner - always a winning look


Would you use it as a keepsake box or storage?


 More of the 75 Cents range inside



I think this little suitcase confirms that it doesn't take a huge amount of supplies to make something beautiful, if you would like to know anymore details about how this was made, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at www.beecrafty.net

Hope you like it as much as we do
