fairy shoes!

now don't laugh at these......the organza that i used had a graduated colour in it.....i forgot to take this into account when cutting the pattern out LOL so now my fairy has one brown shoe and one green shoe.......which is really weird because the organza i used was gold colours!!!!
anyway,this is the 1st time i've done any machine embrodiery (janice-you were right-i can see it getting addictive) i put the organza onto black felt and stitched all over.then i cut the patterns out,decorated with beads and a trim og frayed organza and then made up into shoes :) i really enjoyed doing these,just hope one of the fairies likes them :)

green beaded goddess

while going through some old magerzines i came across a 'stitch' magazine and a project to make some beaded goddess'. this is the 1st time i've tried anything like this and i think i like the finished item,although there is plenty of room for improvement! i was going to use a face charm from crafty notions but (once i'd found it!) it was a bit big so i ended up stamping a face onto shrink plastic and using that :)

vellum and acetate card

another pink card!!!
stamped swirls in 2 different pinks onto pink vellum,then i stamped white swirls onto acetate,then used brillance ink to stamp onto a scrap of pink vellum. stamped and coloured the flower image and layered it all up. i've only used glue under the image so that the edges of the vellum and acetate are free!

simple pink card

nice and simple-white embossed onto white card and coloured in with one colour,layering the colour in some places to make it darker. layered onto pink papers and a bit of ribbon.

wire earrings

just a nice simple pair of earrings made with silver plated wire and a little pearl :)

father's day card

first bit of crafting i've done in what seems like ages!!! on bubbly funk we did a mini cyber crop in may and kathy shared this pop up card with us. i decided to have a go at this for my dads card- i did a 3d doupage of a light house for it because i've ordered him a bbc coast book and thought they went well together :)

over on the bubbly scrumptious blog the current challenge is to make a piece of jewellery.
i've made this necklace,it'sthe most expensive one i've ever made LOL it's made with crystals and sterling silver beads :)

Saturday, 16 May 2009


over on bubbly funk some of the girls have been lucky enough to go away together to have a weekend full of crafting and chatting,those that are left behind are doing a mini crop between us -thanks to kathy for the great idea :)
joanne put a class up to make a pop up gift card's mine............

i used a sketch from kathys sketch blog (1st time i've used a sketch for a card-and i liked it :)) the papers i used came free from a magerzine-can't remember which one or when (sorry!) the blue bit inside should fit but it was a bit of scrap i found on my desk and i wanted to use it,so i did LOL i figured it didn't matter that white was showing on the inside of the card because there was white showing on the front :D
