The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters.  The winner gets a prize, which this month is a £5 voucher to spend in the sore, as well as a badge for their blog, and the winning entry will also be highlighted on the challenge blog the following month.

For November the theme is : AUTUMN COLOURS

.

As the theme this month is “AUTUMN COLOURS” I decided to go for red apples and brown and yellowing leaves.

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

I started off by printing a sky background onto the white cardstock.  I then took the tree frame digi-stamp into my graphics package, changed the trunk colour to a deep brown and re-sized to what I required before printing it off over the sky background.  I also took the Penny’s Apples digi-stamp into the same software and sized it to what I wanted.  I made a second copy and cropped out some of the couple of the front apples and multipied them on my working area, some at a slightly different size, before I printed the lot out on another sheet of the white cardstock.  I then coloured them in using my ProMarkers.  I cut out all these items.  I took the brown Basal cardstock into my ScanNCut and cut out a large square.  I scored this some 1.5″ in from the left side and folded it over.  I used template tape to attach the white Basal cardstock inside this folded over back and cut it around to match the front, thus making a white back to my card.  Having measured my tree frame I then cut out two mats of the size needed, from the dotty cardstock, using my ScanNCut.  I also used my ScanNCut, and two different leaf shapes inbuilt into it, to cut out lots of little leaves from the left-over cardstock for the two matt layers and also from cutting out Penny and the apples.  These white leaves I coloured with one of the brown ProMarkers I’d used on the image, and also used it to edge some of the other leaves.  I then used finger-lift tape to attach the mats and main image and glue gel to attach Penny, the apples and the leaves – all of which I’d shaped slightly first.

A Few Bits Of Papercraft

-oOo-

Had to take my car in for an M.O.T. on Tuesday – thankfully it passed without needing anything this time, but there are a few advisories of things that look to be geting near the end of their life and may need to be replaced over the next few months.  So no major cost this time but it will need a bit of money spent on it before the next M.O.T.

I’ve had one or the other of my youngest nephews in and out of here for periods over the last few days, so haven’t done a huge amount of crafting as I’ve been doing things with them when they are here, from starting to tidy the spare room – one of their Bobcat toys was missing believed to be in the spare room so nephew was very keen to start help with the tidying – toy found!  Same nephew had also bought over a jug full of blackberries that he’d picked so that I could help him make a blackberry tart – he has a wonderful touch with breadcrumbing the pastry and mixing it up – better than me I think, so basicly all I had to do was give him the weights and measures of flour, etc., needed as he couldn’t remember.  And I just sat and watched and gave a couple of hints.  Of course I had to take the pie out of the oven for him.  He then took it home – so didn’t get to taste it.  But he had made some Marmite biscuits with the spare bits of pastry and it was really beautifully made.

Wednesday morning I had my ScanNCut machine out again.  I have started putting what I cut together – some complete which I’ve got to show you today, and some left to finish – so keep an eye out over the next couple of weeks for what I’m working on.

I hope you like the things I’ve got to show you this time.

  1. Digital Stamp Fuschia with coloured version too by Pamela West and 398 Shaped Card 1 *ScanNCut* by Rae Carr (I printed the digital stamp sheet out at a much smaller size than provided onto 300gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and then coloured the digital stamp using my ProMarkers and a FlexMarker.  The colours I used were: Tropical Orchid, Spring Lilac, Pink Pearl, Yellow, Olive Green.  I then cut it out and went round the edge using n Imperial Purple FlexMarker. I cut out card shape from Basal cardstock and mat layer from Topsy Turvy cardstock using my ScanNCut machine.  I’d taken the cutting file into the online Canvas application, resized together to keep the proportions, and then downloaded the cutting file to my USB stick to take it to the ScanNCut. I used my Hougie Board to score the fold line of the base and folded in half. I wrapped a piece of lace ribbon around the mat before attaching it to the card front using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape.  I used the same foam tape to attach the panel with the coloured digi-stamp.  I finished off by using glue gel to attach some flowers, also cut using my ScanNCut from the same duo cardstock as the mat but used the darker side here, and placed flat back faux pearls in the centre.  I’ve got room to put a greeting near the bottom left once I know what language it is needed in.)

  1. Cute vintage dog topper & decoupage by Toni Martin (I printed the sheet out onto 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and cut out the peices.  I scored a pale yellow Adorable Scorable A4 sheet and folded it in half to make my base card.  The card front layer was attached using finger-lift tape and the topper was attached to this using 3mm deep, double sided, foam tape.  I don’t know what greeting or language will be needed yet so I’ve attached the blank greeting panel using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape.)

OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE COLOURING:

On the Stamping Dragon Designs FB group our design team leader has challenged us to a fun challenge to “COLOUR A SDD IMAGE IN COLOURS YOU NORMALLY DONT USE”, with loyalty points going to anybody who takes part in the challenge.

Now I took a look at my quite substantial range of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and couldn’t see anything there that I don’t normally use over time.  What I did realise was that I tend to be quite co-ordinating and that there were some colours I haven’t used on the same image.

So I printed out a Stamping Dragon Design digi-stamp and went a bit mad and messy with the colours – How does a Starfish coloured dragon with Sky Blue coloured feet and tail grab you?

1LuLu2

  1. Lulu Dragon Painting Digital Stamp by Janette Padley (I printed the digi-stamp out onto 300gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and coloured it in using my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  The colours I used were: Starfish, Sky Blue, Poppy, Tropical Orchid, Amber, Terracotta, Island Lagoon, Imperial Purple.  As the challenge was simply to colour in an SDD digi-stamp I’ve not made this up into a card yet.  Hopefully I’ll be able to do that at some point over the weekend or next week.  I’m thinking of a child’s card.)

BAG:

A really sweet little bag that would be great for a little gift. Decorate in a way that’s appropriate for the contents and recipient.

  1. 239 Tag Bag Template *ScanNCut* by Rae Carr (I took the cutting file into the online Canvas software and downloaded it onto my USB stick after resizing.  I then cut the pieces, including the front panel and whale – which were cutting files inbuilt into the ScanNCut – from a single sheet of blue Topsy Turvy cardstock.  I folded at all the scored lines and made the bag with the darker side out, glueing in place using quick grab wet glue.  I turned the panels front and back over to the lighter side out before glueing in place using the same glue.  I attached the whale and then went round the outside and over the lower jaw with a grey ProMarker before finishing off by attaching a ribbon to the top and flat back faux pearls.)

A Small Assortment Of Crafts

Hi to all visitors to my blog.  Today I’ve got some creations to show you made using digital downloads I got for free as well as some creations made using air drying clay.  Now if you really want a laugh then keep scrolling down to the last creation on the page and tell me what you think.  I’m really not very good at making little characters.  I was aiming for a monkey face but my mother tells me I’ve made a bear.

CARDS:

(If you click on the thumbnail images you can have a look at a larger image of each item.)

All the digital download elements on this card were free and were created by Janette Padley of Stamping Dragon Designs.

  1. “Vintage Lady” digi stamp from freebie sample pack, papers and paper ribbon from “Summer Time Freebie” – both from freebies album on SDD FB group, and flower from August 2014 freebie at the SDD store. (I printed papers, paper ribbon and paper flower, as well as the digi-stamp, out onto 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock.  I then coloured in the digi-stamp using gold and red Wink of Luna for the frame and frame embelishments and Promarkers for the lady.  The colours I used were: Gold, Amber, Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Blush, Cool Grey 3 and Satin. I took a 6″ square, scalloped edge, base card and yellow Dainty Dots cardstock, and cut out everything, rounded a few corners with a corner punch and attached the whole lot together with quick grab wet glue.  I didn’t glue right to the edge of all the elements so that the edges lift a bit to give an illusion of dimension, but the card is in actual fact quite flat and will go through the post in the UK using a standard letter stamp.)

SCRAPBOOK PAGE LAYOUT:

I made this for the August Colouring Challenge on the Stamping Dragon Designs Facebook Group.  All group members can request the month’s image provided they promise to upload a photo of a finished article made using the digi-stamp before the end of the month.  This particular digi-stamp – “Pup in Pumkin” – is also available to buy in the Stamping Dragon Design store.

1Pup in Pumkin 01 04 2Pup in Pumkin 01 01

  1. This is a simple 8″ square scrapbook layout using a photo I’d taken of our pumpkin, the adorable little digi-stamp coloured in with ProMarkers, and pieces from the “Summer Time Freebie” available in the freebies album in this group. (The elements from the free kit, the digi-stamp and my photo of our cut pumpkin were all printed out onto 250gsm Super Smoth white cardstock.  I then coloured in the digi-stamp using my ProMarkers.  Colours used were:  Black, Cool Grey 1, 3 and 5, Gold, Amber, Pumpkin and Pear Green. I cut a piece of brown Basal cardstock to 8″ square to start off with, made mats of yellow Dainty Dots cardstock and orange Blingalicious cardstock, then cut out the elements, mats and layers and stuck everything together using glue gel.)

3D CREATIONS:

For this floral wreath I made lots of flowers and a few butterflies – though I wasn’t trying to make any specific type of flowers – which is a good thing because I don’t think they look exactly like any specific flower.

  1. Ring, 21,5 cm, Polystyrene, 1 pc and Silk Clay – Assortment, Basic 1, 20×40 g  (I took the ring and coloured it with a gold Wink of Luna pen.  I then took several colours from the various Silk Clay pots and made flowers, leaves, and butterflies from them – some made using Martha Stewart silicone molds and some made free-hand, adding faux stamens to some as I built them.  Once the created pieces were dry I put a ribbon around the topof the ring and used glue gel to attach all the pieces.)

It’s time for another inspiration post from me on the “The Dragons Den” blog. Hopefully I can inspire you with a crafted creation made using some downloads that are available in the Stamping Dragon Designs store.

I hope that you like what I’ve got to show you this time.

CARD

This is the card I made –

August Inspiration 02

Below are closer looks at the card

August Inspiration 03     August Inspiration 01

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

  • “Uncle Perrys Gift” – found – Here – in the shop.
  • “Blue Harmony Papers” – found – Here – in the shop.
  • “Simply Lovable Collection CD Rom” – found – Here – in the shop.

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

For this card I printed out some items from the CD-ROM to use as background elements, cutting a strip of one and putting it across the centre as a paper ribbon.  I went over the edges of this paper ribbon and the shaped panel with a ProMarker to make it stand out.  I also punshed two corner paper punches on the background and the blue Topsy Turvy mat to create interlocking corners.  I printed the dragons digi-stamp out three times, once onto plain cardstock, twice more onto paper already printed with two of the blue backgrounds from the blue harmony kit.  I cut out all of these, making the two blues paper piecing pieces for the two dragons.  I used the blue ProMarker to colour some parts of Uncle Perry and the Blue Grey FlexMarker to put in shading around the lines of both the dragons.  The Wink of Stella pens were used to colour in the parsel and the white gel pen to do Uncle Perry’s eyes and teeth.  I shaped these and used glue gel to attached the pieces image to the card front.

-oOo-

And that is it from me for today. I hope my little creation will inspire you to visit the Stamping Dragon Designs store and have a play with some of the digital downloads available to buy yourself.

Please keep visiting”The Dragons Den” blog over the next few weeks as you’ll find various “Inspiration by …” posts appear from the other design team members, as well as colouring tutorials and other posts. I’ll be back with more posts for “The Dragons Den” over the coming months as well, so keep an eye out for those too.

Today a new challenge starts on the “Stampin’ with the Dragon” Challenge Blog.

New July 2014 - Challenge TeamPrizeEach ”Stampin’ with the Dragon” challenge goes live the first Friday of the month with a new theme each time. The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters. The winner gets a kit, full of papers and digital elements, from the Stamping Dragon Designs store. Although we’d love to see Stamping Dragon Designs items on your creation, you may ENTER the challenge using ANY MATERIAL you wish as long as you clearly follow the set theme. You may enter the challenge with 1 entry per month. So why not consider joining in with us this month – go to the challenge blog and have a look at the rules and the inspiration created by my fellow Design Team members.

For August the theme is : SAND, SEA & SUN

.

CARD

As the theme this month is “SAND, SEA & SUN” I had to pick a digi of one of the fun loving dragons on the beach.

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

I printed out the digi-stamp twice at smaller than the size required.  I then extended the palm tree on the right outside the box a bit on one of the images before colouring in the images using my ProMarkers, only colouring the palm tree and ball, plus the bucket and spade on the second copy. The first image was cut out as a rectangle and the corners rounded with a punch while the coloured in elements were cut out of the second copy.  Having measured the main image I used my ScanNCut to cut out mats to go behind it as well as waves and the sun (using cutting files inbuilt into the machine). I stuck the waves, overlapping each other, onto the base card and used the white gel pen to give white tips to the waves. I stuck on the sun layers.  I then matted and layered the coloured in digi-stamp and attached it to the card front.  I used glue gel to attach the cut out pieces of the digi-stamp to give some dimension to the card. I used one of the brown ProMarkers I’d used on the image to put a dotted line around the outside of the card.

An Update And Two Cards

-oOo-

It’s a very short post from me today – only 2 creations to show you.  I’ve been trying to do little bits of tidying in the garden and having to do more resting and less crafting because of that.  I must admit that I don’t like how hot it’s been and suffer because of the heat, so try and do a little in the garden each morning and evening and rest in between.  Thoug this morning I went out with my loppers – and it started raining before I’d settled down in my chair properly to start working – so in I came again.  I have done a few other bits of crafting than on show today, but they are for Design Team work and so they are items you will see over the next few months, so lots of reasons for you to keep poping back for looks in the future.

.

CARDS:

  1. Rock a Bye Jiggy Stamp by Janette Padley and Baby Things *SVG* by Rae Carr (I printed the image out onto 250gsm Super Smooth cardstock at smaller than the size provided and coloured it in using ProMarkers.  The colours I used were: Tan, Raw Sienna, Fuchsia Pink, Pink Carnation, and Red.  I then cut it out  I made a box card out of an A3 sheet of pink Adorable Scorable cardstock and panels out of white Adorable Scoreable cardstock.  I also cut out baby motifs out of pink Basal cardstocks using cutting file in my ScanNCut machine.  I used finger-lift tape to attach the panels to the box, and foam tape and glue gel to attach the baby motifs to the outside panels.  I put two acetate bridges across the inside of the box from side to side.  This had pieces sticking up onto which more of the baby motifs were attached using red back tacky tape.  I’ve not put on a greeting yet as I don’t know what language it will be needed in, but there are plenty of room on the “helicopter” and “rocking horse”.)

Fishing Boy Digital Stamp 7 by Angela Wenke and Fishing Rod Backing Paper by Apetroae Stefan (I printed the digi-stamp out at smaller than the size provided onto 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and coloured it in using my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  The colours I used were: Tan, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Henna, Satin, Olive Green, Red, Sky Blue, Surf Blue, and Cloud Blue.  The base card is A5 in size and onto this I stuck a panel of brown Basal cardstock.  I printed the backing design onto 120gsm good quality white paper and cut out two panels, one with only a single fishing rod on it.  The larger panel was stuck to the mat on the card using finger-lift tape and the same type of tape was used to stick the little panel and the digi-stamp topper onto blue Basal cardstock.  I used 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape to attach the matted image to the card front.  I’ve not put on a greeting yet as I don’t know what langauge it will be needed in.)

Today a new challenge starts on the “Stampin’ with the Dragon” Challenge Blog.

New July 2014 - Challenge TeamNew July 2014 - Gift VoucherEach ”Stampin’ with the Dragon” challenge goes live the first Friday of the month with a new theme each time. The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters. The winner gets a voucher for £5.00 to spend in the Stamping Dragon Designs store.

You can enter as many times as you want but there MUST use something Stamping Dragon Designs used within ALL entry projects. If you don’t have anything designed by Janette Padley of Stamping Dragon Design in your digital library – never fear – there’s an album of freebies available to members of the Stamping Dragon Design Facebook Group – so just request to join and you’ll have access to the freebies that can be used on your entry project.  So why not consider joining in with us this month.

For July the theme is : Easel Card

.

CARD

As the theme this month is “Easel Card” I couldn’t resist going the whole hog and making a “Tripple Easel Card”.  But even though I’ve chosen 3 digi-stamps from the store to put on the card, I’ve only used 4 different ProMarkers to colour them in.  I hope that this will inspire those of you who have a limited number of any alcohol markers to jump in and have a go at colouring in digi-stamps.  And also show those of you who are reticent to buy any digi-stamps because you think you need to buy dozens of alcohol markers, before you can colour in anything, that just getting a small number can get you started – but of course you can colour in digi-stamps with other mediums as well, so don’t think it has to be alcohol markers.

Equipment:

Method:

You’ll notice that the whole card, including the coloured in digi-stamp toppers and floral embelishments, were all made from 2 sheets of card for printing and two sheets of card for construction.

I took my Hougie Board and scored one sheet along all the lines as shown here:

Wedding Easel card 10I then cut along the solid lines and folded and burnished at each of the dotted lines.

I scored the 2nd sheet as shown here:

Wedding Easel card 11I then cut at each of the solid lines to give me three panels of exactly the same size as the front of my card – the long strip left over wasn’t needed for the card.

I took backgrounds from the kit into one of my graphics packages and re-sized them so that they were smaller than the panels that would form the front of my easel card.  I then took each of my chosen digi-stamps into the same page in the graphics programme and re-sized them to a suitable size to sit comfortably on the panels.  I also took in a floral element and a paper ribbon from the kit and re-sized them.  All these elements were spaced out over one A4 working area before printing them out.  I again re-sized the background panels so that they joined together to make the larger panel for the inside back of my card and printed this out onto the other A4 card.  I used the roller glue pen to attach the cardstock panels to the easel front, making sure to only glue on the bottom halves so that they would lift up.  I attached the background panels to these, making sure that the two outside panels were facing inwards towards the centre so that they would sit right when lifted to the easel position.  I colured in my digi-stamps – going over some areas a second or third time with the same pen to build up colour dept to give a little dimension to the characters.  I was having a good day when I made this card and decided to cut out all the characters, leaving just a fine white border of cardstock around them to give a little lift against the background.  I shaped them a bit and used glue gel to attach them to the easel fronts.  I then used foam tape to attach the paper ribbon, onto which I’d written “On Your Wedding Day”.  I used the same tape to attach the little floral elements I’d cut out, two on the base as stoppers for the two sid easels, and the rest as embelishments around the card.

A Couple of Cards and a Few Other Bits

-oOo-

Not got a lot of an update this time.  I’m still puttering a bit in the garden in short sessions, resting a lot in bed, and doing a small bit of crafting in between.  My back/hip is slowly getting better, but I managed to have a tumble and jar everything again.  I’ll know by tomorrow whether I’m stiffer and more sore after my little misshap.  I’m writing this late at night so that it’s ready to go live in the morning, which is always the time I feel worse in any case, so impossible to say whether I’ve made things worse overall at the moment.

  1. Pink Wild Rose Pyramage Topper by Janette Padley (I printed the sheet out onto 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and then cut out the layers.  I took an A4 sheet of white hammered cardstock, scored it using my Hougie Board and then folded it in half to make my base card.  I went round the base layer of the image using an Antique Pink ProMarker before using finger-lift tape to attach it to the card font off centre.  I then used foam tape to attach the other layers in place.  I got some cut flower layers from my box of bits and then scrunshed and shaped them before attaching to the card front using glue gel.  I finished off by putting some neon yellow glitter glue in the centre of these flowers.  I’ve not put on a greeting yet as I don’t know what language the card will be needed in.)
  2. An angled view to show dimension of the pyramid and flowers.

  1. Get Well Teddy by Janette Padley and Teddys Day out ( Butterflies) by Janette Padley (For this card I printed the two digi-stamps out at the same size, but smaller than the size provided.  I used the same colours for both images, those were – Raw Sienna, Cocoa, Walnut, Green Shoot, Leaf Green, Grass, Forest Green, Ivory, Powder Blue, Imperial Purple.  I then took a 6″ square scalloped edged card and scored the front and folded it back.  For the matting and layering behind the images and in the back of the card I used sheets from the latest Create & Craft club free gift which I stuck in place using finger-lift tape. I used the same tape to attach the two matted and layered digi-stamps to the front and back of the folded back card front.  I finished off with some leafy twigs I’d cut out previously using my ScanNCut.)
  2. Angled view of topper on the outside.
  3. Inside of card.

JEWELLERY:

Today’s assortment of elastic loom jewellery is actually two belts and a bracelet.  The youngest nephews often arrive with trowsers or shorts hanging down, and after seeing something about making a belt using one of the techniques for using elastic bands I decided to give it a go.  I’ve made them just about  the same size as the tops of their elastic waist shorts so that they will stay in place but not be too tight.

  1. Two belts and a bracelet.
  2. Closer look at one of the belts.
  3. Closer look at the way the elastics are put together – using two each time and pulling the next two through.

  1. This bracelet is made in exactly the same way as the bracelet I showed you in my post of the 10th, but this time I’ve used every other white and black elastic on both fishtail strands of elastic. I’ve used the same size jump rings to join the two strands and the same little acrylic rondelle beads poped on the jump rings before closing them.
  2. Diferent angled view of the bracelet.
  3. A view at another angle.
  4. Close-up of the pattern and beads.

It’s time for another inspiration post from me on the “The Dragons Den” blog. Hopefully I can inspire you with a crafted creation made using two downloads that is available in the Stamping Dragon Designs store, which you can find -> Here!

I hope that you like what I’ve got to show you this time.  Although I’ve printed out backgrounds specifically to make the patchwork backgrounds, the same technique could be used with left over bits from other projects.

CARD

This is the card I made –

Fairy Patchwork Sewing card03

Below are closer looks at the card

Fairy Patchwork Sewing card02    Fairy Patchwork Sewing card02

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

  • “Play Time 1” – found – Here – in the shop.
  • “Blazing Summer Mini Kit” – found – Here – in the shop.

Consumables:

Equipment:

  • Scissors
  • Hougie Board
  • Ruler – one with regular holes for piercing down one side

Method:

The image was printed at a smaller size than provided and coloured in.  I then carefully cut it out and gave it a bit of a shape with my fingers.  I took the backgrounds into one of my graphics packages and shrunk them all down into small squares and made more of each background type.  The page was then printed off.  I cut out each of the panels.  I took the ruller and put it down so that the holes were in from the edge of one of the squares.  I used the black fine pen to put a dot through each hole, before turning the card round and going round the other sides.  I then took the white gel pen and joined between every other dot like a sewing line.  I did the same for all the squares.

I took two of the linen textured cardstock and scored along one at 8″.  I folded over the short side and stuck it to the other sheet of the same cardstock.  I then cut off the extra to make an 8″ square card.  From the cut off piece I made a square mat to use on the front of the card.  I used the ruler as an edge to lay the squares against on the base card and then used glue gel to put each one in place, giving me wiggle time to get them evenly in place along each of the sides.  I did the same for spacing out some more squares onto the mat.  After the glue had set I used foam tape to put the decorated mat onto the card front using foam tape, trapping two bits of folded lace behind a piece of the foam on the right hand side.  I then put the cut out digi-stamp on the card front with glue gel and put three more squares tumpling off the bottom left.

-oOo-

And that is it from me for today. I hope my little creation will inspire you to visit the Stamping Dragon Designs store and have a play with some of the digital downloads available to buy yourself.

Please keep visiting”The Dragons Den” blog over the next few weeks as you’ll find various “Inspiration by …” posts appear from the other design team members, as well as colouring tutorials and other posts. I’ll be back with more posts for “The Dragons Den” over the coming months as well, so keep an eye out for those too.

A Few Cards and Other Bits

-oOo-

TTCRD_winnersBadge2bI entered one of the cards I showed you in my post of the 14th May into several challenges.  It was the card with the main image Penny with Butterflies by Janette Padley.  Well – I found out I’d won one of the challenges.  it was the “Through The Craft Room Door – TTCRD Challenge May 13″ – the results of which you can find Here!  So now I have 3 digi-stamps from Sandi to play with.  Look out for cards made using them in the next few weeks.

One of my nephews had asked me if he could make some butter.  I know he wanted to use the old glass butter churn, but there was no way I was buying enough cream to put enough in the bottom of that for it to churn, so I bought him a 600ml pot of double cream and gave him a pot and an electric whisk instead.  And as he was getting to make butter I bought a packet of make your own bread for his brother – but I added some raisins and cinnamon to it for him to mix in. Considering how much he had to taste along the way, and how bad his kneeding method is, it’s surprising how well the loaf rose in the airing cupboard.  They had to go home while the loaf was in the oven so we’ve not had a slice of it yet, but this is what the results of our efforts look like.

Bara Menyn 01    Bara Menyn 02    Bara Menyn 03

Other than that I didn’t do a whole lot of crafting Sunday and Monday.  I did manage to get a photo of the card I made with the items I’d pulled out in 5 minutes for the Stamping Dragon Design Facebook Group fun challenge I told you about in my last blog post though.  Then it was just one card from a kit and one quick and easy card.  I hope you like them.

  1. Nap Time Stamp by Janette Padley and Strawberry Shortcake Papers by Janette Padley (I printed the sheet out onto  250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock at smaller than the size provided.  I also printed out a background sheet fromthe papers kit.  I coloured in the image using my ProMarkers.  The colours I used were: March Hare, Satin, Blush, Vanilla, Pastel Pink, Blossom, Pineapple Crush and Pastel Yellow.  I then cut the image out as a topper using the Perfect Squares Tool to get the shape right, and then went round the edge with the Pineapple Crush ProMarker used for the colouring.  I cut a mat from the background and attached the topper using finger-lift tape.  I took a sheet of cream Adorable Scorable cardstock, scored it using my Hougie Board, and folded it in half to make my base card.  I took a sheet of pink Adorable Scorable cardstock and cut another, slightly larger, mat to put behind the topper and also cut a paper ribbon from it.  I used finger-lift tape to attach both of these to the card front before using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape to attach the layered topper on top.  I made paper roses from the background by tareing and winding the cardstock and glueing them together using quick grab wet glue – I made the flowers using the same method as I used in my No Tools Paper Flowers 02 Making Paper Flowers tutorials.  I then used the same glue to attach the roses to the paper ribbon element on the card.  I finished off by putting some spots of toneing glitter glue on the card front.  I’ve not put on a greeting yet as I don’t know what language the card will be needed in.)
  2. Angled view of the card front.

  1. Return to Patchwork Forest Luxury Card Collection by Hunkydory (This was one of the set cards within the kit, so all I needed to do was pop everything out, fold the base card, and attach first the base image layer using 1mm deep, double sided, foam tape and then the decoupage pieces using glue gel.)
  2. Closer look at the decoupaged centre.
  3. Angled view of the card.

1cup379795_96 - card02 - Scalloped Topper With Christmas Tree 4 2cup379795_96 - card04 - Scalloped Topper With Christmas Tree 4

  1. Scalloped Topper With Christmas Tree 4 by Anna Babajanyan (I printed the sheet out onto 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and cut out the scalloped panel.  This I stuck to the front of an 8″ square base kraft card using finger-lift tape.  I then took gold glitter glue and followed the wiggly line around the card.  I also took a white glitter glue and put a dot on all the “snow” dots on the tree itself.  I’ve not put a greeting on yet as I don’t kow what language the card will be needed in.)
  2. Close-up of glittered area.

JEWELLERY:

It took me several sessions over two days to complete this, but I loved the beads and effect so much I decided to make it a large enough size for me.

1Bracelet 105 05 2Bracelet 105 02 3Bracelet 105 03

  1. This bracelet was made with elements from a kit by Bead Spider.  The kit had enough material to make two bracelets, so I’ve got another one to make up again.  The beads are very sparkly, which is difficult to capture in a photograph.
  2. Another angle on the beaded area.
  3. Look at the button clasp area.

HINTS AND TIPS!

Today’s tip is – read, and follow, the “Terms of Use” or “Angel Policy” of any item you want to craft with, especially those that you’ve received in digital format, be it from the Internet or on a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM.  And if something doesn’t have any Terms of Use them assume that you have no right to use it, not that you can do anything you like with it!
