I was like a kid in a sweetie shop unpacking all the new goodies. Trouble is what do I play with first and I've had so many ideas whizzing round my head that I didnt know quite where to start lol.
This is one of the ideas I've been dying to try for ages, a milk carton style holder. Very much a prototype to check if the template I designed fitted the lil bottles. (Travel sizes from tesco) The template works perfectly and for something very light it works perfectly cut from a single sheet of a4 card. For the lotions it needs 2 stuck together back to back and with some chipboard in between. Although I cut this one using scal it's going to be just as easy to make freehand and with the SU scallop border punch.
Baroque motifs with bashful blue & barely banana, versamark & poppin pastels.
I did say you'd be seeing a lot of the Baroque Motifs set, this time on Pretty In pink stamped with versamark and a dash of poppin pastels. I've always disliked chalks but I have to admit I'm loving these. Beaded wire handle and border created with versamark and more poppin pastels. Top tip... dont smoosh paper into versamark, it gets a wee bit too wet.
This handbag does open but at only 8cm wide and 3cm deep at the base it's too small for anything other than a couple of lippies.
Time for a card, this is an a5 sheet of perfect plum folded to create a tall slim card and using the garden whimsy stamp set. Stamped with versamark and the small insects with a section masked off to add the greeting. The tulip is pretty in pink & green galore on whisper white matted on pretty in pink. I havent got the scallop border punch yet so had to use fancy edged scissors, what a palaver!!
This is a mini wallet card using bashful blue cardstock stamped with the Spot On roller wheel & versamark then dusted with going gray poppin pastels. The birthday cake image is from the Fun & Fast Note set, coloured with chalks and matted on perfect plum cardstock. A small piece of silver organza ribbon from stash.
You can just see the inside of the card in this photo. The card was made from a 9cm by 27cm strip which was scored, folded and stuck together to create a flap inside so it could hold a voucher. I continued the theme inside and added a small border using a wee strip of perfect plum.
This is a very quick and simple card using the pram stamp from the Fun & Fast Notes set. Barely Banana and lavender lace cs, some of the lovely ribbon and the image is coloured with copics. I used my Spot On roller wheel and versamark on the bottom to match in wiht the dotty theme of the pram.
Sweet little jar from Ikea (4 for £2.79) but I've used my nesties to pretty them up a bit. Bashful blue and pretty in pink with Seeing Spots stamp set.
I was using this 29p set of cotton buds with the poppin pastels and couldnt stand looking at the boring lid any longer so a 2 minute makeover lol. Nothing more than 2 pieces of Sweet Always paper, one cut using a template from HOTP. Mounted on whisper white and a doodle edge using one of my sakura pens.
