A tag and a gift box

Two very different projects today.  First up is a male themed tag – I never thought I would get into making tags but I love them!  They really jazz up a gift

How cute is this little sailing boat die?

I used copper embossing powder on the chipboard buttons, paper art ships wheel and knot die cut

And now onto something girlie Smile  Here’s a little gift box I made using a Noor Design baroque template that was released a couple of weeks ago.  This was so quick and easy I think I’ll be making a lot more for Christmas to pop homemade fudge and florentines in

Love the rustic look the string gives the elegant box shape

The box has a decent depth to it

It’s Christmas!

Oh dearie me, I’ve made my second Christmas card for the year.  It’s all downhill from here now lol.  This is for the Noor! Design August challenge, which is Christmas.

I’ve used the fabulous Shabby Christmas papers, they are just YUM!  Add in the Merry Christmas picture pad and you have a really quick and easy card.  I adhered the waste stars from the new Winter Wishes Circle Star die on to the sentiment (inked with Weathered Wood Ink then blinged with some stickles)

Loving the shabby pink and pale blue colour scheme of these papers.

A Pink Noel

I had a scrap of muslin on my desk that kept shouting of my to either use it or put it away, so I had a play and came up with this flower.  I love the soft, wispy look I managed to get, perfect for wintry Christmas cards.

The flower was a doddle to make, I just adhered scraps of the muslin (that I frayed a bit) onto a 1” punched circle of card, I did this 3 times, using smaller scraps on each layer then finished off with a glizty bling spacer and button.  The chippie is from a Dovecraft (or is it Papermania?) set that I got from The Range.  I painted it with white gesso then coated in Distress Glitter.

The little white fabric blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I love the ethereal look of these flowers and are the perfect touch for the icy look I was going for with this card.  The silver pearls are also from The Range, I think they are from the new Forever Friends range.

A better perspective of the depth of the flower.

Man!  I LOVE how this card turned out.  Uber quick and easy so perfect if a lot are needed in a hurry.

Fabulous Wonderful Friend

A floral explosion today lol.  I wanted to use the new Flower Power stencil from Noor Design so came up with the idea of using it on designer paper to give a watercolour effect.  I painted through the stencil using watered down gesso and then went over the flowers with Distress Glitter.

You can see the stencilling effect better in the picture below.

How CUTE is this butterfly, which is from the new Flower Power Paper Art sheet.  I used two glued together and finished off with some pearls (yeah. I think apearl explosion is also going on here lol)

bev-rochester-noor-flower-power-stencil2

I used the delish 0460 Circle with Flower die to mount the sentiment (Anna Griffin) on to.

Last pic, promise.  I loved how this card turned out, even though I kept the outside shape as square I think the shaped template that I used for the top layer really pops off the dark background.

Two little angels

Morning!  My project today is a shabby Christmas plaque that I had such fun making.  I love mixed media, there are no rules!

I started off with some very old Anna Griffin striped cream and pink paper which formed the background.  I then used a text stencil and some stencil paste to add some texture.  Before the paste dried I poured on some fine glitter for a little bit of bling.

Once this was dry I die cut a frame (Marianne Designs die) twice and glued together for added strength.  Before adhering this with foam pads I glued on a border of pearls around the edge.   Then … I went crazy with the embellies.

The poinsettia are actually lilies which I pulled apart, cut some chunks out the edges so the petals weren’t so uniform, spritzed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Nantucket Pearls inks then reassembled with stamens in the centre.  I coloured the white stamens with some shabby shutters reinker.  I die cut the holly leaves and spritzed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang inks and twisted whilst still wet then gently unravelled once dry.  Did you spot the angel wings?  Man I love that silicone mould so much ♥♥♥

Once everything was stuck in place I went over the highlights with either white gesso or Viva Inka Gold wax.
