we have come to the end of the alphabet again
This is a fatbook page with pistachio green Bazzil card,Zigzag background paper , an olive green Nestabilities label shape, London Eye image from Crafty Individuals, rub on border and ribbon bow.
I had a lovely day yesterday at Stowe Landscape Gardens visiting some more of my favourite follies, the photos are The Gothic Temple , The Palladian Bridge , A View Through the Bridge down the lake, and a view of part of the park from over the lake
Y is for Yellow
I used a yellow flower image from a book of springtime papers by Nel Whatmore , then I stamped
a tiny flower from Crafty Individuals (the reverse side has a larger version of the stamped image in orange ) and Anchor threads in yellows , oranges & greens
This is one of my regular Christmas designs that I make every year,
I used a large holly punch on the cream card,cut off the corners with Victorian corner scissors and scraps of green papers ,red peel off bow and greeting
I had half a sheet left of this golfer decoupage and nearly a full pad of the papers so I think this will qualify for the unused theme on the Alphabet Challenge , I don,t do decoupage very often but I bought this one for a golfing friend originally, I hope he doesn,t remember it as he will probably get this card next year.
I was asked to make a card for someone who works a lot with Fairtrade and is moving on to a new position, I cut a bottle shape from black card folded to DL size,and used the 4 colours of the Fairtrade logo in an Iris fold square for the label ,the little tag is done with Quick kutz
is something I have made for a fat book swap ,we are doing the 4 seasons and have now just started the Autumn ones,I used a scene from an old wall paper book ,the picture continues on the back of the page,then I added some vellum over the top cut with a Fiskars scallop punch( I nearly used this last week for S)
I made a little window frame and covered it with some hessian print paper ,put a scrap of bronze card behind that was embossed with Cuttlebug Divine Swirls and popped a leaf on the top.
P is Punches over on the Alphabet Challenge,
this is a very simple and easy card done by punching hearts from left over scraps of background paper,with tiny peel off stars in between, stuck onto card triangles and the pot was cut from a scrap of red card
M for Men this week,
I made this dinner jacket for a 21st. card,it is an A5 size card with the centre front cut and folded over to make the revers covered with gold embroidered paper,then behind that a piece of striped paper for the shirt,
3 pink brads for the buttons and a ribbon bow tie,there is a patch pocket cut from another piece of black card with spotted paper folded for the handkerchief,and a peel off no.21
Alphabet Challenge letter J is Jewels,
this is a spring Fat Book page I made for a swap,the background is K&co paper,I stuck 2 lines of DST and covered it in Flock, added 3 sticky rubon flowers and also covered them in Flock,and finished with 3 fabric flowers and stick on Jewels
