So I don't know if anyone else is like me.......Pinterest Boards full of ideas and inspiration but never actually doing anything?
Time for that to change for me and I have been going through my boards and trying out some different crafts, recipes and more.........I have seen many versions of the melted snowman bauble and what with the Frozen phenomenon.....yes I admit to being a fan too!......I thought I would have a go at making some...
I had some red felt which I cut into thin strips and then snipped the very tips of each end to make the teeny scarf, then folded over and put a wee stitch to hold it....peppercorns for stones and this one has brown card for the arms but I have since gone out into the garden and snipped one of my bushes to get proper little snowman twig arms!....last but not least a wee piece of orange card rolled up for his nose.....Oh and the snow is salt!
I then made some wee tags with Olafs beautiful quote and attached to the bauble with a wee bell and some lovely ribbon!
I hope you like!
Will be back tomorrow to share some more makes for my Craft Fair!
Hopping on quickly to share my make for today over at DTDF
I am limiting myself to browsing online at the mo as I frantically finish all my makes for my Craft Fair on Saturday!
I saw this technique either in blogland or Pinterest....(I spend far too much time on both!!).....and have been itching to try it out...for a first attempt I am pretty pleased with it and it doesn't take long at all!
The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Little Bits of Christmas Stamp set....which I have fallen in love with and has been added to my ever increasing wishlist! And of course a little bit of Stickles to finish off!!
will be back soon to share some of the things I have made!
I have been after a set of Build a Snowman stamps for a while now and managed to find these on Ebay
with the intention of making some little sweets that I had seen on Pinterest for my craft fair....the Christmas Puddings I did last year were far too fiddly and took ages... and now that they are made I wanted to put the stamps to some other use too.........
I always like to make some packs of wee 4x4 cards too as they always sell well at the fair and last night was messing about and came up with this little card....I love it and after sharing a peek last night on my Facebook page it seems a lot of other people do too! So I will be spending today making as many as I can!
Us Saturated Canary girlies have gotten together today to share some spooktacular Halloween themed makes for you all! I have used Withering Fairy for my card coloured with my spooky pencils....can you make out the tinge of zombie green?! I have raided my Halloween box for some spideys and cobwebs!
A wee close up to show the hint of colour I have added.....if you haven't come from the blog already then please please pop over, there are some amazing makes!
Oh I am so late today with my Dies to Die For post.......I had a pretty stressful week last week for reasons that I won't bore you all with but cardmaking was waaayyyy down the list. So it was a quick aarrgghh I need a card for my post.......this took probably not even half an hour to make....great for if you need to make a card in a hurry!
I have used 2 colours of Distress Ink to make the background and then these gorgeous Marianne Design Snowflake dies...really wishing now that I had cut them from sparkly card instead of plain....next time!
And a few wee sequins in the centre of the snowflakes for some sparkle!
You getting fed up seeing Christmas cards yet?! I have used the very festive Candy Canes from LDRS's Saturated Canary range...coloured once again with my black and grey pencils with just a tiny hint of red.......I am loving colouring like this at the mo as I can grab any papers at all to match!
These gorgeous papers are from MME's Mistletoe Magic range and I have inked and distressed all the edges.....the candy canes are from Hobbycraft....and the wee bit of tulle is leftover from my mini festive wreaths I have been making for my craft fair..
