After my successful baking marathon for my gorgeous god daughter’s christening, I can now sit back and relax and craft ( or in my case attempt to craft ).
It is my eldest god daughter’s wedding anniversary approaching and I had two idea’s in my head that I wanted to create. Am almost happy to say the card’s came out pretty close to my image.
I am undecided on what one to use ! The couple and Paris does have significant meaning to them both, But I have to admit I do like the cute couple looking into the sunset. I am also pleased with how the sunset finished as I am totally useless with Distress Ink blending, I have tried all sorts of paper and this was watercolour paper.
All of the dies are from slow boat and unbranded but 1 love them
I just love all things Elf / Elves at christmas, it sums up the magical season for me.
Again these are all from slow boat ( even the stamp ) and cut very well. I did find these tricky to do as so delicate to hold let alone colour in. For the colouring I used Nuvo Alcohol Markers
These will be going on kids christmas sacks just hope they like them !
Just need to add hole and twine and job done 🙂
Before my upcoming hectic but happy weekend is upon me, I decided to finally have a test run with the edge dies I got from slow boat from China.
These cut like a dream and cannot wait to put them to good use when I need to make a card for a special event. Hardly have to use a pokey tool as the little pieces fall right out. BUT the one edge die on top right hand photo, now that was another matter. I did struggle to begin with with this but as alot of other crafters have had same problem I feel relieved I am not doing anything wrong. Phew !
Aren’t they gorgeous ?
So sorry for delay in posting, I have been very busy with upcoming Christening.
I was asked to make 60 favour boxes which took me a weekend to complete. I then also decided to make a start on Christmas Cards using dies from slow boat from China. Have to say I am very impressed with how these came out.
Here are my makes from couple weekends. Hope you like them
Next weekend I will be very busy making 3 Cupcake Bouquets, Macarons and 2 Tiered Cupcakes for my soon to be god daughter 🙂
Christening Favour Boxes
Sorry for lack of blog posts recently, I have been so busy with work, family and also prepping for an upcoming Christening.
As I mentioned previously my happy mail has almost arrived and now slowly drifting off as not waiting for many to arrive. Have to say I am so impressed with what I have so far and no doubt be ordering more in future.
As I had a rare weekend off, I finally got to test some of the dies and no doubt many of you will be familiar with the make of these. I did a trial run of Christmas Cards and also made a trial attempt at the ” favour” boxes as may need to make 60 of these for upcoming Christening.
Anyway here they are. Hope you like 🙂
Well my happy mail from China is slowly all arriving, I say all arriving that is kind of incorrect as have quite a few more to come !
Had to have a play around with the new dies and I am very impressed. Also a while back I made my God daughters Christening Card, but when all the lovely dies arrived I knew I was not 100% happy with it so I re did it and I am alot happier.
Here are a few cards I made… Hope you like them
So pleased that some of my happy mail from China is slowly ( and I mean slowly ) arriving.
As a fan of Hawaii Five O, I just love the bright colours and Hibiscus flowers so when I saw some Hibiscus backing paper my brain was working overdrive, which is a shame as often my images from my head do not materialise to what I want to achieve.
This die is perfect as comes with Palm Trees and 4 different sizes Surfboards.
These cards were very quickly done as wanted to make sure the die was fine and no problems.
I am sure there are many more ways to use this fab die but as still waiting for slow boat from China there is not much I can do until the other dies arrive.
