Razzle Dazzle

I have used a Bugaboo image as they are sponsoring us this week. This image is called Girlz - Autumn Blessings. Youre probably thinking where's the razzle dazzle? Well I do have glitter and gems on there but they're not showing up too well! I've coloured the image with Chameleon pens. The papers are Simple Stories - Sweater Weather. The card blank was cut with my Cricut Explore.

Sketch Saturday & Little Claire

Today's card is for the Sketch Saturday challenge 


Here is my card

I have used one of my fav stamp sets from Little Claire Designs called Rainy Days. I've coloured and paper pieced the images using the same papers and Chameleon pens. I've also added glossy accents to the boots on the border and the puddles. The papers are by My Minds Eye and are called Lost and Found - Heirloom. I've distressed them and edged them all with fired brick distress ink.

I didn't have a lot of time to make my project this week as I was working on some samples so I made this little gift box.

Snapdragon Snippets - Witch Fancy Shoe

And it's also my turn for a project on the Snapdragon Snippets blog.

It's a Halloween card or invitation.

I've used a Snapdragon Snippets file from the SIL store #67670 Witch Fancy Shoe Shaped Large Card.
I've used  Papermill black card as the base and some bright Halloween colours and some mauve Wow glitter embossing powder for this one.


Papermill Project - Natural Autumn Wreath

It's my turn to for the inspire blog post over on the Papermill blog.

I've made a natural wreath card.

Hi Shary here and today I'd like to show you a great Autumnal project. My kids are off for half term next week so this would be a great project to get them involved in and bonus! it's cheap!

Materials needed:

  • Papermill Cream Hammered Card
  • Embossing folder
  • Distress Inks
  • Twine
  • Lots of leaves and a few berries! (Obviously please omit the berries if you're crafting with a small child).
Firstly go out in the woods for a lovely Autumnal walk with your kids and pick up your leaves and berries. You could also use the little pine cones etc. Anything you fancy.
1. Make a blank 5x5 card from the cream hammered card. I've used the hammered as it has a lovely texture and also it is a good heavy weight to hold the wreath. Emboss with an embossing folder.
2. Cut out a ring with the hammered card. I have used two spellbinder dies but you can use anything circular. As long as it fits on your card!
3. Choose your leaves, ideally a lovely assortment of colours. I went a bit overboard here.
4. Carefully punch out your leaves. I only have one leaf punch but I think it would look lovely using several different leaf punches.
5. Gradually build up your leaves onto the ring. I did darker at the bottom. Also in different directions.
6. When you're happy add your berries, cones etc.
7. Distress the edges of your card with distress inks, add twine and gems. Adhere the wreath with 3D pads. A lovely seasonal card.

Snapdragon Snippets - 3D Mason Jar with beets and pickles

Hi Shary here and this is my first post for Snapdragon Snippets.

It really is Autumn here in Scotland, the winds are blowing the leaves off the trees and it's wet!! So this turned my thoughts to all those people who love to preserve and pickle and I made a little mason jar with beet and pickle pods.

I've used the mason jar 3D short  replica jar with lid file #65656 and the beet and pickle mini pods file #65657

Such a fun project and it really does look like a real jar!

Here you can see the pickles inside the jar. I used acetate to make the clear windows.

There is an option to use fabric for the topper but I've used patterned paper for mine and tied it round with some twine.

There is a side label that comes with the kit which is "sweet harvest" but I've used a label to match my topper.

Jodi has a fantastic instructions on her blog Needles 'n' Knowledge giving you clear step by step instructions with photos. 

I hope I've inspired you to make this fantastic project.

See you again soon :0)
