Birthday

A Day All About You

Thursday, January 28, 2016

Even though the sentiment is a little hard to make out in the photo you can still see this is a really delicate, pretty card.  It's just perfect for a bride on her wedding day, or the loveliest of ladies on her birthday, or you could even give it to someone just to tell them to have a indulgent day just for herself.


Fiona's notes: to get the little flowers all pretty and pink I used my Stampin' Write markers to ink up the stamp using Pink Pirouette for the flowers and Garden Green for the stem and leaves.  Don't forget to give it a good "huff" before you stamp down!

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers, Birthday Blossoms  Inks: Pink Pirouette  Papers: Smoky Slate, Whisper White  Accessories: Stampin' Write Markers, Basic Pearls

Shadow Box

Babushka Dolls Shadow Box

Saturday, January 23, 2016

I find one of the most fun aspects about craft is making something with what you have to hand.  These little babushka dolls were traced using an outline I found through Google images and then each piece is hand cut out.  (Sorry about the reflection in the photo, it's so hard to photograph glass!)

 

Fiona's notes
  • I hand drew the hair onto a piece of cardstock and then traced around that 8 times on Chocolate Chip cardstock before cutting them all out
  • To make the faces I used a regular hole punch for the rosy cheeks and the Owl Punch for the eyes.  It's hard to see in the photo but the whites of the eyes are in Very Vanilla to differentiate them from the Whisper White face.  The mouths are drawn on with black pen.
  • I printed "Sofia" from my computer using the RGB code for Rose Red (R200 - G75 - B109)
For sale: I sell a whole range of shadow boxes which can be customised to suit you.  Take a look at the whole range here.  I plan on adding a few more designs over the year so keep an eye out for those.

Isn't this one of the prettiest cards you've come across?  I can't take the credit, it's a Brian King CASE!  Boy does that guy know howta pretty!

 

Fiona's notes: A friend of mine asked me to make a card for him to give to his bride to be on the eve of their wedding for her to open the next morning.  I just couldn't resist this design of Brian King's.  It just screams beautiful bride to me!  I printed the sentiment out so that it was exactly right for the occasion.

Baby

Baptism Cross

Monday, January 11, 2016

Dear friends of mine baptised their second child over the weekend.  She is the most adorable baby girl and I wanted to make a special card for this very special day just for her.  I hope one day she's showered in pearls just like this card!



Fiona's notes: I hand cut the cross from the Blessed by God set so that I could raise it up and make it the highlight of the card even though it's in a relatively subtle colour.
