My uncle Ted has recently been very poorly and had major surgery on his spine so I wanted to make him a little card to cheer him up .... My auntie Gwen was making fun of the fact he had to use a zimmer (walking frame) so that was the first thing I wanted to make ...

The chair is made from a sponge and some fabric 

The fronts of the get well cards are Washi tape 
The paper for the floor is from Stampin' Up 

The table is an inchie from Fernli Designs

The Walking frame is made from BBQ skewers then painted silver 

 I made the box from Stampin' Up Card stock and acetate 

The tag on the box was made using a Stampin' Up punch and a SU sentiment  ... the whole thing is roughly 6 inches x 5 inches (15cm x12.5cm)

Thank you all for stopping by I hope you like what i have made

Stampin' Up Lego Card

Hello again everyone ...

Today's post is showing one of the folded box cards that are always a big hit with the recipient ...

This one is for my 13 year old Nephew who absolutely LOVES lego ... We recently took him to an exhibition of Lego DC comic Hero's it was a wonderful day on the South Bank of London .

The card its self is Pumpkin Pie Card stock 
The blocks are  .... Pear Pizzazz ... Daffodil Delight .... Night of Navy .... Real Red .....  Soft Sky ..  I used a white high lighter pen for the sparkle bit (that's the none technical term .... as my mind has gone completely blank )   

I used the 1 1/4" square punch for the blocks and the 1/2" circle punch for the top of the 'lego' blocks .... I inked using the matching inks for the card stock (one of the best things about Stampin' Up ... I love how everything co-ordinates )   then used Dimensional to raise the circles up off the squares 

The link to my shop is ....... HERE    

Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by .

Christmas Decorations 

As many of you know I am a HUGE Christmas fan and I like to make some Decorations every year to display in my home .....  

Here is the 1st I have made (so far.... lol) 

 I bought a small box frame from a Charity Shop for 50p and it had a sprig of Lavender in it .... I took it all apart and cleaned it up then decorated the frame using Bobunny Chrismas paper  ... I adore this paper range .

I made a small fireplace from some scraps of Chipboard then painted it black and dry brushed some white paint on it for a stone effect .

I also made the little firebox from scraps of chipboard too.   I decorated the back of the frame with some Halloween paper from Stampin' Up which is an awesome brick wall effect .... perfect for what i needed .   I got the little white Christmas tree from Tesco in the January sales it was a pack of 4 for £1 .....    I trimmed the back and side of the tree so it would fit into the corner then glued into place. 
  I glued the fireplace to the brick wall.   I took 3 of the little Christmas stocking from Xanderous Crafty Stash and heat embossed them using a few different embossing powders .... Then I decided to do the same to the little Christmas trees as I wanted it for on top of the fireplace .... I was careful to not get any powder onto the little star at the top ....   I found a cameo thing in my stash (Xanderous Crafty Stash do sell these and you can decorate them in anyway you want )  and glued this to the wall.   

I made a tiny Christmas card using a scrap of card and a little punch out which i coloured and Hey presto ...... a cute little Christmas Decoration ...

I would love to know what you think ...... Check out the range of metal embellishments from Xanderous Crafty Stash over on Face book    and The Stampin' Up DSP can be found in my Stampin' up shop ....

Many thanks for stopping by

Fernli Designs Design Team make

Today i am showing my Design Team Make, which I enjoyed making so so much … My partner is not a girly girly person and I wanted to make her a Cabinet to keep her jewellery in  that would fit her style … Lou sent me this prototype to see what I thought and to see what I could do with it ….. I have to say …. I LOVE IT …. I love how there is space on the other side of the draws so I could put handles on the draws and still be able to shut the cabinet up …

This was a very simple make over … after putting the cabinet together which was very simple I then glued the chosen paper to the outside and sanded it around the edges so it had a smooth edge …. i then inked the edges using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.

All the hardware were added once the whole thing had me decorated
the paper I used is a Tim Holtz one but I have lost the front cover so not sure of the name of the collection.  Again it was just a case of gluing the paper to the front of the draws then inking them  …. The Handles are from Xanderous Crafty Stash on Facebook.

With the paper on this side I cut it to fit then inked around the edges before gluing it down as it would be very difficult do do once the paper is in place.    I used some small Handles from my stash to use as hooks to hang necklaces.

All the other Hardware on the cabinet are from Xanderous Crafty Stash ….. Pop along to Fernli and have a look at the amazing items you could alter …. you wont be sorry .

i would love to know what you think  so please leave me a comment below.
Many thanks for stopping by

Xanderous Crafty Stash

Xanderous Crafty Stash & Fernli Designs 

Hello everyone ... Today my post is a joint DT piece for Xanderous Crafty Stash and Fernli Designs...  
I was asked by the lovely Naomi from Xanderous Crafty Stash to join her Design Team for her relatively new company who sell  mainly metal embellishments  and  some acrylic pieces .... but you should defiantly keep an eye on the company as I have it on good authority that some new lines are in the pipe line ...

I decided to use some of the gorgeous Halloween items that are in stock and teamed them up with some of the wonderful items that Fernli Designs sells in their store ....

I started with  a large Oval Plaque  from Fernli, as my base for the Haunted scene
I then decided to use the Tall Bird House as the Haunted house ...
 I painted the base with Black Gesso, then covered the House with some Designer Paper from Stampin' Up  'Halloween Night Speciality'  142022

I inked around the edges with some black ink and cut out some wobbly squares of black card for the Windows and doors and drew roughly with a white pen the frames on the windows .

I decided to use some enamelling powder (by Crafty Notions) to change the metal embellishments .   
Before and after photo ...

 on this skull I used a Blue Pearl WOW embossing powder 

 for the Skeletons Hand  I used Seafoam white from Heat it Up!  I LOVE how the hand turned out ...

and for the Pumpkins I used Fire Opal Jewel Enamel from Crafty Notions

The Axe is one from my personal stash 
I snipped off the loop at the top of the Skull embellishment and used it to cover the hole in the wooden tag from Fernli Designs ...
 after paining all the wooden pieces black  from Fernli I  dry brushed some white paint on then to get a weathered stone effect  ... the ghost embellishment is from my personal stash 

The metal embellishments from Xanderous Crafty Stash are great to use your embossing powders on and they totally change the look of them .

The lamppost and fence are also from Fernli Designs and the other 'tombstones' are the Domino blanks also from Fernli Designs  .... for the leaves I used a Martha Stewart punch of a maple leaf ... after punching out lots of them and grunging them up by inking them and screwing them up I simply scattered them all over the little scene then picked them up and glued them down a few at a time .. I also added some grey creepy cloth to areas on the scene .

I hope you like what I have done and I would love to hear your thoughts on it ..... and if any of you have a go at doing anything I have covered today .... PLEASE post your photos on the Xanderous Crafty Stash Facebook page or the Fernli Designs Facebook page 

Thanks for stopping by
