Alphabet Swap - I is for Iris Folding
Another kit from Craftee - very sadly they have announced they are closing, this month there is a special sale, due to a new home being found (I wish them luck but how I will miss their kits!!!)
I sat looking out at the sea as I made these wonderful flip flops.
Someone else had the same idea!!
Thank you Liz W.
Colour Swap - Blue with Pink
Another card made while watching ships sailing past the window. This is a Decoupage Sheet from Craftee. I though that I would try something different this time, the papers have a lovely finish to them.
I received this gorjuss card very early in the month.
Thank you Karen D.
Technique - Pop Up Box
I love making these cards!
I used a wallpaper sample to line the box, managing to get just enough pieces from the tartan section. I die cut 'with love' in white and then water coloured with a slightly darker coral colour. The wallpaper consists of several patterns giving it a quilted effect, from the flowered section I punched sever flowers of differing sizes and some butterflies etc. I found some green grass silhouettes so cut them to size as a 'filler' along the lower struts. After I had glued several flowers together I then attached them to several acetate 'sticks' trying to arranged them at different heights. I then attached the 'sticks' to the struts and left to dry. I used flowers and leaves to decorate the outside flaps of the card.
I received this beauty and really love it. I love the colour and especially the way the flaps are all heart shaped. What a wonderful idea!!
Thank you Olive.
Olive sent her cards all together and included this clever little card .......
Before I could finish all these cards I had a 'slight' accident at work so was unable to get them finished in time for the swap. Happily my partners agreed to wait for my cards.
