Mixed Craft Saturday
Good Morning Ladies,
I have some amazing projects to share with you today, we also get to see how amazing Michele's Christmas Fair table looked, which is amazing as you would expect.
So lets get straight into this weeks Crafts:
Danielle kindly sent me a couple of the projects that she has been working on this week, to share with you all. She has used the 'Hearts Come Home' SU dies to create those stunning Christmas tags, she has used Tempting Turquoise ink to create a watercolour wash across the background and then added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter while it was still wet, that's what has created that amazing sparkle.
The two cards are just so adorable, Dannii has used the 'Baby Bear' stamp SU, which is a multi layer stamp, which gives that amazing textured look.
Danielle thank you for sharing your stunning projects with all of us.
Val's daughter Lynn made this amazing Snowman out of Plastic cups, she simply stapled them together. This is for a display in their shop. What an amazing idea Lynn!
Thanks so much for sharing him with us Val.
Michele sent me a photo of her stall at the Charity Christmas Fair last night, your display items that you shared with us last week look amazing on your stall Michele. I am absolutely amazed at how many cards that you have on display, your have worked your socks off! Fingers crossed for a successful night. Thank you for sharing your photo with us.
Brenda has done a little shopping this week and has shared it with all of us. You have bought some lovely things Brenda, the 'Colourful Seasons' stamp and die bundle, that gorgeous paper in the background is 'Affectionately Yours' and so is the matching Washi tape, I love that 'Marbled' Background stamp too, they are such an quick and easy way to create and effective background.
The ' Color Theory Memories and More' pack gives you lots of options, you can use the sheets to make cards or you can make Memory Albums with them as they have fantastic journalling tags etc too. A great Stampin' Up! haul.
I also love your bargain Stitched Squares Dies, can I ask what size the largest one is?
These will be perfect for making toppers, adding sentiments or even making small cards.
Thank you so much Brenda for sharing your shopping.
Janet has been preparing for the gift giving season by making these stunning Gift Bags and an Individual Chocolate box, I expect you could get a nice piece of jewellery in there too Janet, we can all dream can't we?! The Images are from a lovely design company called ''House Of Sandra", I have a CDrom that was sold by Katy Sue Designs, I think you can buy the sheets of toppers etc too.
I love these bags Janet, perfect for any young lady, they are good for making a simple gift look something special.
Thank you so much for sharing Janet.
Lynda has bought some lovely dies from China, a beautiful flourish and some flower dies, I would love to see them die cut Lynda, they look so pretty.
The Sheena 'Poppy' stamp is stunning, it is such a detailed stamp, you can even see the hairs on the poppy stems. I think I have this stamp somewhere, it looks stunning when it is coloured in, poppies can be so many different colours too, I think many people forget that, we had wild ones on our allotment this year, they were gorgeous shades of pink and white.
Now onto Lynda's lovely Christmas cards, Lynda has used Pixie Powders to create all but one of her Christmas card backgrounds, so I bet they all shimmer beautifully, although Lynda has designed the cards all completely differently, they are all so colourful. I think my favourite is the metallic background with the Rose Gold looking Fairy. The other card Lynda has designed using Sue's weaving dies to create the background, them made a circular frame and decorated with a pretty poinsettia.
You must have a fantastic collection of Christmas cards now Lynda, I love how like me you make yours all completely different.
Thank you so much for sharing with us all today Lynda.
Thank you all for taking part this week, we have another amazing line up, you are all so talented.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Love and hugs to all,
