Glitter and Flower Cute Card - Fairies Kit extra bits


My lovely Stampin Up Demo Jodi just reminded me that I need send her some money for the new catalogue (I completely forgot sorry..). I never liked sending cheques with nothing, so I decided to make a quick card with some bits I have from that Fairy kit I've been using making all those cards.
This kit is so cute it's full of glitter and flower shapes you can cut out to assemble these lovely flowers. I hope Jodi likes it ! 8-)

Masculine Card - Giant Spiral Card Template HOTP


There's another man in Paper Follies and I didn't want to send him a fairy for obvious reasons. I needed to send Jim a masculine card. Still I believe that you can send a man a flower as long as it's brown ! LOL
I used the Giant Spiral Card template from HOTP 7341 with the papers Masculine Sarapapers HOTP 4126, Chocolate Silk flowers and chocolate brad & cinnamon stick button brads again Hot Off the Press. I did stamp on one of the flowers with a Stampin Up giant Paisley stamp to give it that mottle effect I used an Adirondack Dye ink Ginger for the contrasting colour.
I've edged the card with Brown Chalk ink Colorbox.
That's me done for today ! This card will in the post this week for you Jim !

Halloween Swirls Paper Follies Swap - Blogs to visit


Just finished this card for the current themed swap at Paper Follies and yep it's Halloween cards already ! I've used a haunted house stamp but I can't remember the company as I stamped the image a while back and coloured it just in case. You'll recognised the swirls used with black cardstock: cuttlebug embossing folder. I just rubbed some shimmering paste into it and matted with purple glitter cardstock. The bats aren't brads but confetti, I thought I would use brad but didn't like them. I finallly glossed (yet again) the tip of the swirls and the ghosts as well as the windows on the stamped image. It's a fun card. I've also decided to put two pictures from now on: a scanned and a photograph one. It helps seeing the card in different lights, I've noticed that although very clear, scans tend to be a bit flat so now everybody is happy ! LOL
I also want to bring to your attention these blogs from these lovely talented ladies !
Laurie (not a blog but lovely work)
Rita (a special mention here as Rita just started her blog)

Fairies Cards for Paper Follies - Vince's painting and Craft Corner


Good news everyone ! Our yahoo group Paper Follies has been a success, Shirley and I started it nearly a month ago and this coming Monday we're going to have our first swaps. Very excited here ! I thought I would just swap with Shirley but people kept coming...thanks to all you who have joined Paper Follies and for your trust. We soon realise that our new members didn't want a huge group so we have stopped promoting it. I've created/assembled these fairies cards for our new members I have to make 17 (helppppp !!!!) so far so good, I thought I show you what have been up to since I was really quiet. This kit is very cute and all glittered (Steady on Phree ! LOL) but I've been trying to make it my own using Anita's 3D gloss (glossy accents is the same) and glossed the bits that usually would stick out and get damaged (little legs and wands...etc.). I do love d├ęcoupage but these little fairies gave a run for my money ! ah ! Vince also helped me so Paper Follies member expect one of these cards in your mailbox very soon.
Vince has been wonderful as he's been painting our long bedroom upstairs here's a view out of our 4 windows you can notice that the room is just right under the roof with slopy walls (so kudos to Vince for having painted sideways ! LOL).
 And finally another picture of my craft corner all painted in white since we use to have yellow and green walls...a refreshing change but not in my tidiness.....I'm still a messy pup ! LOL
Opssssss nearly forgot, Phree you are the winner of last month BlogCandy so you should have received your Fiskars Taxi tool, well done ! And thank you to everyone who have participated and linked to my Christmas Challenge.
