Stamped my little guys and then coloured using copics with a bit of distress ink round the edges. Fussy cut some of the flowers out from one of the pattern papers, adding big pearl centres, die cut swirly leaves and some button ribbon.

Flowers.....


Those that know me,  know I adore making flowers be it stamping and fussy cutting out or dies. On my LOTV card I have used a Cheery Lynn die and LOTV papers with a Memory Box die for the greenery.

It looks like I haven't coloured my little fairies wings or the moon and stars,  but I have with a light Copic and added sparkle on top with a Wink of Steller pen. The whole cute image has been coloured with Copic pens.


 Loads of pearls to add a bit of glam to finish off with !!

Stitches trade show


Went on a little adventure last Sunday to the Stitches trade show at the NEC to meet up with a few friends...I am super glad I don't have to do motorway driving every day, its so boring !!
 
Anyhoo after a walk round I went to say hi to the Fiskars team,  the stand was full of super goodies. Kath was very busy with the punches...
 
 And Keren with the all the fab sewing tools, one being the new circle cutter !!



 Boy did the girls work hard...

  
That didn't include me...


 I did take a little gift up for Enfys, Kath and Keren which I had made for them...


  No not your usual handmade present..a voodoo pin cushion to take their stress out on and a big bar of chocolate. As you can see Enfys (green) and Kath (orange) have already used theirs.



Keren had a red one, but I didn't manage to get a photo of that... 

Didn't really have much time to take any photos as I spent the day chatting to loads of peeps, but here are a couple...


 This was a wonderful knitted tree...with everything knitted to decorate it !!


 Thanks to the Fiskars girls for a fun day and my super presents !!  Aren't the scissors pretty...


 Don't forget to keep popping in at Fiskarettes UK fb page...

Give us a Bow !!


Had a great adventure to the Stitches Trade Show yesterday and met a lot of fabby do extra special people,  talk about rubbing shoulders with the crafty famous !!  Even managed the motorway and thank the lord I don't have to do that every day, its sooooooooo boring !!  Have a few photos that I'll share on a later post.

Anyhoo my turn to host the House Mouse and Friends fun challenge which starts today and I chose the theme "Give us a Bow" and kind of bow you like !!

































The sentiment is sooooooo me and I'm sure this little guy is saying the same in his head !! One of my new favourite stamps.



























Used lots of dies and punches, web ribbon, bling, buttons and stamped and coloured using copics. The corner punch is a new one from Fiskars were you get three different corners i one punch. Its fab as its a squeeze punch and easy on the hand.

We have two fabby do sponsors and they are:

A little something...


..just for you !!

A box card,  haven't made one of these for such a loooooong time and its always good to re-visit an old favourite.


The good thing about these box cards are they fold down flat for posting, but you can put a few matching gift tags inside as I did. 

 I coloured a piece of card using disress inks and then water splattered to make my own background and matching tags. Then used the Fiskars butterfly roller stamp flat to stamp all over. Made a belly band to hold the box shut adding a large butterfly from the Fiskars border punch and some twine.
   
Here's the measurements and pattern I used. Very easy to make and so many ways to decorate !!



 hugs Diane xx
