FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Things with Wings

Hi everyone,

I am delighted to be back with a Design Team card to share which I made for the Challenge at  Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge

Sharon is hosting this Challenge, the  theme is entitled 'Things with Wings' and we are sponsored by http://freshbreweddesigns.com/   and http://www.sweetlilac.co.uk/

I had such fun making this pair.  A greeting card and gift bag to match.  The Gift bag is from Hobbycraft which I altered. 

Things with wings?  Well butterflies immediately sprang to mind, then I dithered and was toying with butterflies or fairies.  Butterflies won the day.






The dies are from Noor Designs UK, Tim Holtz  and Cheery Lynn
The papers are Heartfelt Designs

The lovely lace, pearl trim and floral embellishment are from http://jules777cards.blogspot.co.uk/p/blog-page.html
The butterfly is a punch.
Anything else from my stash

I do hope you have time to pop over and take a look at the very talented Design Team's work on the Fussy and Fancy  blog.  It is a fabulous Challenge, it would be great if you could join in.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!

FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Fancy Folds

Hi everyone,

I am delighted to be back with a Design Team card to share which I made for the Challenge at  Fussy and Fancy   

Norma is hosting this Challenge, the  theme is entitled 'Fancy folds ' and we are sponsored by  Sweet Lilac Flowers and Marianne Designs

I fancied doing something a bit different, but still ended up with an Easel card.  If in doubt I tendto turn to Easel Cards.  But I did make this one a littlel different in shape by starting off with a narrow easel but quite tall and then adding the lovely die-cuts (Joy die from Noor Designs UK of course!)  Actually I am quite pleased with the finished result.

The Joy papers are from Noor Designs UK also

'KEW' and 'TIME FOR ROMANCE' at Kraftyhands and another TIP

Hi everyone,

It is my turn to post again on the Blog at http://kraftyhands.blogspot.co.uk/
I am sharing another card I made a little while ago.  This time I have used the lovely 'Kew papers'  (Well you know how much I love these papers!) and have also used the gorgeous   topper from the 'Time for Romance' topper pack from  Kraftyhands online shop.
The dies are cheery Lynn,  the embellishments came from Live and Love Crafts and everything else came from my stash.




MY TIP - Sometimes I find I have a dilema when white is too stark but cream is too yellowy.  On occasions I find if I lightly ink the edges of the die-cuts and add either glitter of Dutch Doobadoo Structure paste it just takes away the starkness of the white.  This way both the white and off white or cream sometimes can blend and work.  This is not an official tip, just something I have found works for me.

I do hope you have time to pop over and take a look at  Kraftyhands  blog. 

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!
