TUSSIE MUSSIE NO 4

Hi everyone,
 
I have another Tussie Mussie to share.  You may remember I had a phase of making these lovely shabby creations having stumbled upon them with this lovely name!  This is my version of one.  

For this one I started off with an 8 inch square of paper.  You may remember I tried two ways, one with a square and one with a circle cut in half.  I liked both ways to be honest.


This time I used papers from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, although they were a gift to me from a dear friend!  The lace and other bits and pieces were from my stash.

Thanks for looking today,

ELISABETH BELL HOBBY HOUSE TOPPER

Hi all


Today I have a card to share which I made using this gorgeous image created by Elisabeth Bell in the form of a Hobby House Topper.  I love these toppers, they really do cut out some time by not having to colour the image.  This lovely image makes me think of Easter,  Could she be carrying her Easter basket?  I think so!

For the shape I started off with a Go Kreate die and you will see I have used a mixture of Cheery Lynn dies too.  The papers are from LOTV and the lovely embellishments are from Live and Love Crafts. Everything else, including the lace came from either my stash or it weas purchased locally.  Although the photograph has not picked it up the flower have a slight sparkle, using Stickles glitter glue.

I tried something a bit different here and made two lace bows.  I quite like the effect too.




I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:

NOOR DESIGNS UK SKETCH CHALLENGE -

Hi all

 Well, having entered no Challenges for some time  I now have cards to enter two days running. 

Today I have another set to share    It is a bit photo heavy I am afraid, but it is the best way to explain just what I have done.
 These are the links to two of the shops I use:

I made this set for the March Photo Inspiration Challenge at Noor Designs UK
Just look at this smashing Sketch!  I love working to sketches so this was one that really jumped out at me.



I had such fun doing this.  I opted to make a card and co-ordinating Cake slice box.There is a fabulous template for this in the lovely Dutch Doobadoo Range at Tracy's shop found here:  http://noordesign-shop.co.uk/

The papers are Joy papers, from Noor Designs UK.
The bunting die, circle die and can you just see the diamond die too peeping through at the sides of the image?  Well, they are Joy dies , again from Noor Designs UK.  The Joy papers are smashing and a fraction of the price of some papers on the market.  The dies, well the ones I have used so far all cut lovely.

It goes without saying that I just love the Dutch Doobadoo range.  The templates are brilliant and easy to use.  In addition I have used the Dutch Doobadoo structure paste and then sprinkled fine glitter on, for the icing on the cake and the die-cuts.  Love the Structure paste!

Most of the embellishments are from Live and Love Crafts.

The image and anything else came from my stash.











What a lovely Challenge this is!  And, of course I would like to enter this into the Challenge at  Noor Designs UK

LIVE AND LOVE CRAFTS - March Photo Inspiration

Hi all

My apologies for not being around lately.  I have had quite a lot on, including another Magazine Commission that came in.  I love doing these, but when they arrive it is a case of head down and focus as there is always a deadline to meet.  I have not had one for a while so this was a surprise, a nice one too.

Today I have a set to share which I made using these gorgeous materials from Live and Love Crafts.  Of course I just could not resist digging into my Noor Designs and Cheery Lynn dies too.  That just about sums up the materials I used to be honest, apart from items from my stash.   It is a bit photo heavy I am afraid, but it is the best way to explain just what I have done.
 These are the links to two of the shops I use:

I made this set for the March Photo Inspiration Challenge at Live and Love Crafts

Just look at this gorgeous photo!  Well, this was just up my street!

I had such fun doing this.  I opted to make a card and co-ordinating altered Notebook/Organiser.  I think the images were from PION, apart from the front image to the card and that one I found in my stash.  It just went perfect for not just the photo, but the theme too.



What a lovely Challenge this is!  And, of course I would like to enter this into the Challenge at Live and Love Crafts
