Four Seasons of Fairies Card and Matching Box

Hello Crafters,

I got some more play time at the weekend and chose to use the Pion Design Four Seasons of Fairies collection of papers and a decorated Goatbox to match.

I decided to diecut some flowers out of the papers to match the card and double sided papers are perfect for these.  I used Rosy Owl AC4 and Lady E Flower 004 (smallest one)

The image is from the sheet and accented using a BlooMar Frame.

A full list of articles used is as usual at the bottom or this post.

The Square Goatbox is so easy to put together, no glue is necessary and even holds the accetate sheet in place in the lid without glue too!

Pion Design Four Seasons of Fairies

Hello Crafters,

I have finally got a card to share with you.  I unfortunately came down with shingles around my eye which knocked me for six literally so I have been out of action for a few weeks but I am  now pleased to say I'm on the mend and my mojo returning slowly.

Today's card is quite a simple and elegant card for me.  I have used the NEW Pion Design Four Seasons of Fairies collection of papers.  I have used one of the NEW BlooMar Designs chipboard frames coupled with Fantasy Branches chipboard, all links as usual at the bottom of the page.

For the base and layering I used Pion Design Palette White II.

 The flowers were made using Foamiran and Rosy Owl Apple Blossom and Lady E Tiny Flowers Dies coloured using Gallery Oil Pastels.

I added some 13arts Vintage roots to the flowers.

Hope you like it.

Pretty Patchwork of Life

Hello everyone,

It has been a while since I posted, mainly due to be being busy in the store but the last three weeks I have been poorly with Shingles on my eye, not a good place to get it, I can tell you. Anyway this card was all but glued and I just didn't have the energy or enthusasism to do just that, but today I have forced myself so you can see the result.

I have used the pretty papers from Pion Design's Patchwork of Life Collection, I hope this reminds you of just how pretty they can be.

I have also used a vintage image from Pion Design, all links at the bottom of the post.

I have combined lasercut chipboard from both Fantasy and Laserowe Love with a dashing of dutch doobadoo gesso.

The Button Marie fitted the vintage frame perfectly.  I also added Button Lauren to the centres of the white Chrysanthemum's.

I also added 25mm and 20mm open roses along with pomegranates and vintage roots in white.

Of course my Pion card would not be complete without one or two of the butterflies from the Border sheet:)

I hope you like it.

Pink Christmas

Hi Crafters,

Hope you all had a good weekend.  I have been busy tidying this weekend and I do feel better after a good clear out.  Still alot of sorting to do in my craft room and de-cluttering needed but I am certainly on the way.

Today's card was made using Pion Design's Winter Wonderland collection of papers and Monochromatic Cardstock.  I picked out the pale pink and used Palette Grey I, I just love this combination.  The image is sooooooo adorable.

I added some flowers from Prima, the Lavender Frost collection, they too are equally gorgeous.

The beautiful chipboard is a new arrival from Laserowe Love, details at the bottom.  I also used the new Sprucey Sprigs in Shabby White.

Oh, I have also used a new lace, I do love a bit of lace :)

Hello everyone,

You may have noticed we have had a delivery of all sorts of boxes, some with different shaped apertures, Tealight Boxes and Chocolate Boxes.  They are already diecut and fold easily.

Today I have used one of the chocolate boxes in Blue, great for small gifts and especially good for little thank you's or just because....  I have used Pion Winter Wonderland collection of papers.

There is a bar of Fruit and Nut, my favourite :)

The front was decorated with  49andMarket Botanical Bloom flowers, 13arts Vintage Roots in White, a Tim Holtz mini Tree and Tim Holtz Reindeer and dashings of Gesso.

Below is a little look at the other Boxes added to range:-

Hope you like it :)

Vintage Santa Sleigh

Hi Everyone,

Hope you have all had a good weekend.  I have been waiting patiently to play with the Laserowe Love Sleigh and finally yesterday I got to play.

So Santa has a vintage lace sack of presents finished with some Lace Gwendoline and 3mm pearl string drawing in the sack.

The Poinsettia's were made with Lady E Leaves 002 and Rosy Owl Poinsettia dies and coloured with Tury 53-30 paint.

I have added cinnamon sticks, rusty star, vintage white roots, frosted pomegranates, sisal and cheesecoth to finish the vintage look.

Hope you like it.

Prima Moon Child

Hello everyone,

I finally got to play with some of the NEW prima papers that have hit our store.  This collection is called Moon Child.

I made an Organza Foam Flower using Lady E Die 004 and frosted berries for the stamens.  I also applied a little gesso and some Ayeeda white paint with silver for the sparkle.  I used matching Prima Flowers Constellations from the same collection.

I added some sisal in purple and natural amongst the flowers.  The leaves were cut using Scapman Die Flourish.

I used two organza butterflies together and added some prills to the centres.

 I also added prills to the little star wish bottle.

Tucked about is a Laserowe Love Star 

Just under the wish bottle I added a moon, star and sun charm set.

Hope you like it.
