Family Projects

 I am sharing a couple of projects that are not mine.

The first one is a card granddaughter Holly made whilst checking/raiding what was left of my craft stash so all are oddments she found lol -the die-cut man I only have in black so she must have cut the other one out in white after drawing round the die-cut-I say suppose as whilst she is in there she closes the door and we get strict instructions not to come in lol.


My Daughter has now lost interest in painting and has taken up felting.


 

Finally a painting my Son did of Amy Johnson

Tissue Box Holder

 Morning and I have a tissue box holder to share today I made one over a year ago with the Chocolate Baroque Bee  HERE.

This time I made a more masculine one using a TH embossing folder which I wiped over with black acrylic and after messing the lid up THREE times used the embossed off cuts for the lid and two circles on the narrower sides.

The fabric butterfly was cut from sticky backed fabric,added a heart pin behind,fibres and a Spellbinders die-cut frame under it all.

Galleon on Dark Sea

 Morning and today I am posting a card I made for BIL birthday in November.The galleon stamp was from a stamp swap last year on FB.

The background was a painted piece but the moon smudged and was destined for the bin -decided I didn't mind the smudged moon so stamped the galleon and added some white acrylic to the waves and matted onto black card.

Wine and Friends

 Morning and thank you all for your get well messages I was really touched and appreciated everyone so a big thank you to everyone.I have a few cards I made but didn't get to blog so here is the first one.

In November Daughter requested a birthday card for a workmate and as there were three really good friends she chose this image and sentiment was added after pic taken so not to offend anyone lol.

She chose the image Friends Dont Let Friends Wine Alone from Bugaboo Stamps 

coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents and dewdrops my favourite texture stamp round the edges and P.paper from an Art By Marlene pad.Wine bottle and glasses were from a stamp and die craft mag freeble set also coloured with promarkers.Ieven decorated the envelope.
