It was our last week for the term on Friday and so we closed with a secret project. I love the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit Die and have wanted to make a luminary with it for ages. So now was the perfect opportunity.
We used the Thick Whisper White CS and Vellum with the retired Sleigh Ride Edgelits and the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set.
With the room lights were out they did glow beautifully and the little fake candles last a long time. So that you can turn them on and off the bow and Sentiment were made as a separate piece and attached with velcro.
I have just about worn out the die making them for friends, once they saw them it was a “I want one!” catch cry. Hope you like them as much as the class did.
We were fortunate in being hosted at Irmas for a break up coffee and a chat after class. So a big thank you to Irma and the class for all their well wishes, gifts and support.
See you all in 2017. Naomi Connolly
I know it’s been way too long and while there is no excuse for my procrastination, here are some that might get me off the hook –
- Husbands 70th birthday and visiting family from Tasmania have consumed time and love.
- Grandson’s electric wheelchair broken down so Nanny has now resumed the school run morning and night – never thought I would be back here on a daily basis. All good though.
- Weather, how did that song go “Always blame the weather”! So hot here and with my crafting gear outside, not real practical to craft for too long at a time.
- After the rush of the blog hop my mo jo waned.
Having said all that I have not been completely idle and have enjoyed making this card for eldest daughters birthday. Some of you know her from Deanies Kids Cuts.
Anyone visiting cards on Pinterest would have seen these wonderful creations and I have been keen to give them a go for some time now. Nadene’s birthday presented a perfect opportunity.
The flowers were stamped with the Flower Shop Clear stamp set in Regals Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Rose Red and Crushed Curry inks onto Whisper white and punched with the Pansy Punch.
Some smaller flowers from the Petite Petals Stamp set were stamped in Crushed Curry and punched with Petite Petals punch.
The same inks were used for the butterfly’s from the Papillon Potpourri then punched with the Elegant and Bitty butterfly punches. Leaves were punched using the Bird Builder punch in Garden Green Card stock.
The base card was Garden Green with panels from Sale-a-bration’s Painted Blooms Series paper mounted onto Whisper White card stock.
The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White using the stamp from Flower Patch Stamps in Island Indigo. Punched out with the Decorative label Punch. The same punch was used to add backing in Garden Green.
