So much to do and so little time, so a quick post hoping that you have all had a safe and Happy Christmas. Crafty Creations are on holidays but just to keep in touch and keep your creative juices flowing I’m sharing this little toddlers card.
Can you identify which stamp set the little nest is from? How many guessed the Swirly Birds Set. Well done you!
The papers are Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo. Inks used Blushing Bride, and Flirty Flamingo and Basic Grey for the nest.
The embossed background used the Seaside EF, a versatile folder, not just for sea themed cards!! Love the Layering Oval Dies, makes framing so quick and easy. The sentiment was from a free retired Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, Party Pants. Getting these free stamps sets is a quick way to build up your supply. You are all so lucky to be able to do that soon.
Number 2 is a Large Number Framelit and the little suit Something for Baby SS and Baby’s First Framelits. All topped off by some flowers using the Blooming Heart Thinlits and dotted with some black pearls.
Get ready for the NEW YEAR.
I am, lots of organising and sorting so can have a super year. Cheers Naomi
Pleased to see our two new ladies enjoyed themselves enough to return this week. Well done Ladies.
Having had a couple requests for other uses with the Envelope Board besides Envelopes and with Easter fast approaching it seemed an ideal time to make a box. There have been many examples of this bag in a box on Pinterest.com so I won’t name names today, just a thank you to all who post there.
We used the Have A Cuppa DSP and the Friends and Flowers Bundle for the Rabbit. Bunny feet were from Flower Flair Framelits and the small oval punch. The tail is the tiny flower in the Botanical Builders Framelits. The 1” punch worked for the head and rear end. The ears were colour in Pink Pirouette and the greeting just one I happened to have.
As promised in my February Newsletter I have created a card featuring a stamping off technique or Repetition Stamping. Another terms for this Technique would be first and second generation, with this example having 5 generations. In this card the technique has been used to give an illusion of movement as the plane takes flight. The idea did come from Tracie St Lewis on Pinterest.
I created the card by making a background with Sponging and Aqua Painters to create the sky then stamped directly onto the dry background in Archival Ink.
Added the greeting from the same stamp set “Sky is the Limit” and a few jewels and card done. Apart from the drying this technique gives a quick effective card, with minimal supplies. Think bikes, cars, old gramophones, running bunnies for Easter. Let the imagination run riot.
