Items added to Folksy Shop.

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Hi there, I wanted to show you the items I've added to my Folksy shop.

I've made some gift tags from some Amy Butler paper.

Also, some embellishments sets.

I really enjoy making little embellishments. I like the process of punching, sewing and assembling. It may seem weird, but I really enjoy it. Keeps me sane.

Hopefully I will be adding more soon.

'Till next time.

Introducing my Folksy shop.

Saturday, October 16, 2010

I set up a shop in Folksy a while ago but didn''t do anything else with it.

Well, this week I finally got around to filling it up, well start to.

At the moment there are sets of punches in it but I will graduallly be adding things.

I have added a link in the sidebar at the top if you're interested in visiting it.

As and when I add more, I will let you know on the blog.

Here are some pictures of some of the punches in my shop.

Yellow 50th Card.

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

My Mum asked me to make a card for her friends 50th birthday and this is the card that I made.

I used the Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder to the actual card and added a layer of yellow card on top which I inked the edges on both these pieces.

The next layer was from My Minds Eye's Bloom and Grow paper and then used a piece of the yellow cardstock and ran it through the daisy Cuttlebug embossing  folder and stamped the sentiment.

The sentiment is from Papermania Clare Curd stamps and just inked the "th" from birthday to make the 50 "th", If that makes sense.

I just used two chipboard numbers for the age which I inked in brown ink and added some glitter to the yellow card.

My mum thought it was nice so hopefully Jane did too.

Tartan Star Card.

Monday, October 11, 2010

This is another masculine card that I made recently to put in my stash as there are very few masculine cards in there at the moment.

I used the Cuttlebug Candy Stripe embossing folder on the first layer of card and inked it with blue and then brown.
I cut the zigzag border on the spot paper and cut out the large star. The circles and small star were punches.

The paper was from the Making Memories Just Chillin' boy paper and the stamp was from Papermania Clare Curd stamps.

This card is a 5x7" card so it's obviously a lot bigger than the embossing folder but I think it's better that the stripes aren't over the whole background as it would have been to much.

Teapot Hello Card.

Sunday, October 10, 2010

The stamps sets that I bought recently was the American Crafts Enjoy stamp set and the Papermania Summer Bloom Picnic stamp set. One of the reasons that I bought the Enjoy set was because it has a small damask stamp and I really liked the teapot on the picnic set.

I decided to use the damask stamp as a background and chose the purple as I think that it goes really well with the kraft card. The sentiment is from the enjoy set also.

The teapot and the cup are actually one stamp but they were next to each other and I wanted the cup to overlap the teapot, so I just cut between to create two stamps.

I mentioned I like the purple and kraft together but I also like the way the aqua and purple go together as well.

Right I'm off for a cup of tea. See you soon.

Butterfly Tag.

Saturday, October 09, 2010

I wanted to show you the tag that I made recently.  This was my first time that I had tried to emboss something using the embossing powder. Can you tell? I did make a bit of a mess with it, but I think it's ok for my first attempt and I'm just glad I didn't send the powder flying. That's my usual trick.

I made the tag out of white card, punch the hole and used a hole reinforcer of both sides.
I cut the two larger butterflies out from a template by Jenni Bowlin and the small butterfly is the classic butterfly from Martha Stewart punches. The strip at the bottom is green glittery paper and I used the threading water punch from Fiskars. The stamp is from American Crafts Enjoy stamps embossed with white embossing powder.

Well next time I will try to remember to use a dryer sheet to get rid of the static.
