Hi there me darlins and hope all is well with you today xx
The weather seems to have picked up a bit here inasmuch as it isn't raining and it isn't windy. In fact, to be fair, it's actually one of them lovely Autumnal days which make me just want to put on my snuggly coat and warm boots and go for a nice walk.
I won't of course cos I am still in the crafty zone!!
But the thought was there ....... for all of 10 seconds!!!
So I'm back today to share another sample with you and today I thought I'd share one the cards I did for last week's show and also a bag we did on one the last but one workshop. I used the beautimous Beach Bliss papers and the colours in these papers are just so pretty. I love putting them with Kraft card (I am so into Kraft at the mo) and it seems to highlight the blues in the papers to perfection.
... here's the card.
It's such an easy one to do but it looks lovely I think and this would work for anybody really, although I would possibly lose the bling if it was going to a bloke (unless it was for my nephew in which case I'd add more cos it would be right up his strasse lol!!).
I added some glitter to the diamond shapes and went to town with the old sewing machine (which has never seen a scrap of material in it's life!!!).
A couple of die cut stars, a die cut button, a sparkler and a double bow made with Royal Peacock Seam Binding from The Ribbon Girl (which goes beautifully with these papers IMHO) and that's pretty much it.
Don'tcha just LOVE cards that are easy to put together but look the biz when you're done!!
I decided to do something different for the all day workshops that we are holding at LOTV HQ and one of the projects we did at the last but one workshop was to was to decorate a bag - these are the bags that you get if you buy any stamps etc from the shop or at shows.
Louis Vitton et al, eat your heart out!!!
The papers all but cover the front so they are perfect for this and again because of the colour of the bags, they coordinate really well.
I added a border which I glittered again for the sake of all things bling - I LOVE blingy (probably where my nephew gets it from!!).
I also love the fact that there is so much detail at the bottom of the paper and it looks really pretty.
Magnolia swirl and peony petal dies, plus punched holly leaves and more bling :)))
A cheeky little sentiment from the SET 33 - Christmas Grungy Messages - uber cute.
Ok so that's me done for today and I hope you like my Beach Bliss post. Also, just to let you know that we are back on the telly next Tuesday at 11am - hope you can join us for an hour of crafty fun.
Take care and see you back here soon as soon and enjoy your day xxx
