Just wanted to share a make-over for my coffee can. This is a handy dandy little helper to have around! You can dress it up or down. If this was done for kids to use, I would probably stamp images and not add too many 3-d items.
This is a small tin so I had to use the single roll tissue. Remove the cardboard center, place the roll in the coffee tin and start pulling the tissue from the center of the roll. Cut a star or X in the lid and pull the tissue out--I had to play a bit to get the right tension, so the tissue comes out smoothly--not too snug or loose.
I used Bo Bunny paper, Stampin Up cardsock, Fiskars punch, focked rub-ons from Prima, flowers and ribbon.
It's actually Tuesday Coffee for me this morning :) need that zap to get me going!
I've just finished reading this book written by my friend Susan. It's about a woman who walked from New York to Siberia, travelling through Canada on up to Alaska....all on foot to reach her home. I loved the book and it ended all too soon!
Some of the baking I've done the past few days. Things are all packaged up.....and yes I sampled a couple :) My shortbread, almond florentines and raison ginger cookies.
I'm making another batch of shortbread and that will be enough :)
And I WON :) so just thought you might like to see all the awesome goodies! I totally forgot about this prize coming my way so when I saw it in the mailbox, I couldn't wait to get home. Now it's my turn to be thankful Tanya!
You will definitely be seening these goodies on some cards in the near future! Look at the beautiful ribbons and the chipboard! Not to mention a stamp set that is just too cute! And....look at all the images she stamped out for me. And....BUTTONS! I love all these embellishments :)
Thanks again Tanya, nobody can wipe the smile off my face today :)
Particularly at this time of year when we are mailing lots of cards and especially overseas, it can get pretty expensive because.....we all like to add embellishments and layers to fancy up our creations :)
So when I was asked to make 'flat' cards, I almost started hyperventillating :)
It was a challenge, but I think these will pass as 'flat'!
These five have no layers except for the oval on the red ribbon and the circles on the two, vanilla coloured cards---they're not raised on pop dots.
These five have one layer added, but are still reasonably flat :) What part of 'flat' do I not understand, eh? I used one glossy paper on the Angel card, the white ones are all SU! Whisper White, two SU! Very Vanilla and one in SU! blues (the heaviest one).
There you have it :) thanks for stopping by to have a look. Your comments are always appreciated!
Happy Saturday Everyone :) I'm here with another Christmas card. This is an entry at Creative Accents Challenge Blog for December. I'm having trouble with blogger, so you will have to check out their blog on my side bar---sorry. There are some beautiful samples by the design team and I hope you will give it a try too :)
I've used SU! cardstock, Graphics 45 and Bo Bunny printed paper, a 'few' stickles :) some sparkly gems, seam binding and a tag from Graphics 45.
There is a tutorial for this Herringbone Technique on Splitcoast Stampers.
Here is my little fairy card. She is for the 'Pearls and Swirls" challenge over at Crafts and Me.
I am also doing another challenge too, over at Splitcoast Stampers. Today it's 'Ways to Use it' Thursday and we were to ink up a Cuttlebug folder--my first time doing it! I inked up with Distress Ink--Antique Linen. It's quite light and a bit hard to see on the photo, but irl it looks quite elegant :) I also inked up the edges and around the fairy image. The pearls are Prima, lace from my stash, velvet ribbon is Making Memories, not sure about the flowers, the printed paper, under the fairy image, is Websters Pages and all the cardstock is SU! The words, that you can hardly see, say 'All The Things I Love'.
Just about forgot to mention that the image is coloured with Copics and my 'blossom' Spica.
And here's a close up of that pretty little Fairy :) She is sitting reading and is the perfect shape to be used as a bookmark.
Thanks for coming to look :) and be sure to check out Crafts and Me Challenges and Splitcoast Stampers to see all the other enteries.
