Good Morning Ladies,
Each week I would like to try and focus on a technique or product, looking at different ways of using them etc.
If you woiukd like to suggest anything just let me know.
Today after Michele's purchase in the week, I thought we could look at the different ways we can use Card Candi, either thee pre-made Candi, as pictured above, or that made with your card candi die.
I will list some of the things you can do to them....
You can Colour them with just about anything, alcohol pens, normal felt pens, paints etc.
You can gild them with gilding flakes
You can add dots to them so that they look like buttons,
Your can stamp letters onto them (Craftwork produce stamps for candi)
now here are a few things you can do with them....
You can use them to make a frame
You can use them to create Numbers/letters
You can use them to decorate die cut shapes, particularly good with scalloped squares and circles.
You can use them to make Lego style bricks (see below)
You can use them to create little insects...
My Candi Caterpillar
My Candi Ladybirds
You can also use them to create many different flowers here a a couple I made...
A Dahlia type flower
Just a cute little flower
There are many different styles of flowers to make both using the candi upside down (as in first flower) or the right way up and creased (as in second flower)
There were a few ideas for men's cards, one was making a shirt front and using the candi as buttons, but my favourite was this one that I made below
A snooker table
I made this using a piece of green felt for the base, I then added a brown frame,
Small black circles for the pockets, and Card Candi for all of the balls, I had a coffee stirer thing from my stash and pro markered it to look like a cue !
What do you think ??
I am sure there are a million and line other things that you cazn use candi for
And if you have any ideas to share off show, then please let me know!
Karen sent my a couple of photos of a poinsettia using her news candi die for the centres.......
Using dots as they come out of die
Using dots after shaping
Thank you Karen you must have read my mind ! Xxx
Michele has sent us in some images of Card Candi products, her storage ideas and a couple of really cute pretty projects that she has created using Candi.......
Thank you Michele xxx
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
Love and hugs
