Foxy Suite #7 - Picture Frame


Love this little picture frame project.. I can see a trip to Ikea sometime soon! 

I would love to make a set for the whole alphabet for a special mum to be!! Though luckily I don't know any at the moment... so I am quite safe from that thought!!!
Great use of the new Large Letters dies... and the new Labeller Alphabet stamps too. Another great Team Training project...

Time for a Tardis on Tuesday!?

Not made a Tardis for a while... but I was given a Tardii Convention Class Challenge!
So hows about a Tardis mini book... just to prove that it is bigger on the inside...
I used the Floral Boutique papers and Washi tape...as the colours just suited...
Lots of room for photos... or Dr Who memorabilia!

And here is the one that Alice made... love her central stamped panel much more than mine! Lot more subtle....!
Though I have to admit to the polka dot papers on Alices' version being retired ones... I had a major mistake on prepping!! Oops...
And back to mine...

Double Z Fold Panel Card Tutorial

Time for another Floral Affection and Affectionately Yours Double Z Fold Panel Card... Last week's original shinier foil version shown here... 

In the flesh this looks very similar to my Double Z Joy Fold card... but it uses less cardstock... and it opens out fully...

And seeing as it is Friday... yup... a Fancy Fold Friday Tutorial for you...
(1) Make one of these....
NOTE that you want to stick the back square paper piece...then the arm... then the front left paper piece this time...
(2) Add a 9.5cm/3 3/4" Square matted panel to the front with the bottom of the square panel lined up with the bottom of the pop out arm of the card (mine is 9.5cm Square Crumb Cake; 9 cm Square Mint Macaron and 8.5cm Square Whisper White - or 3 3/4" Crumb; 3 1/2" Mint; 3 1/4" White)
(3) Add images off to the right hand side of the arm to cover it all up...!
And some decorative details for this card...
- greetings from Stylised Birthday and Confetti Celebrations
- large and small flowers stamped in Night of Navy on Crumb Cake and Whisper White and cut out by hand
- Mint Macaron marker pen highlights on the leaves of the left hand paper
- White gel pen small flower centre highlights on the left hand paper
- Mint Macaron & Crumb Cake marker pen colouring on the dots of the back square piece of paper (and I have to laugh...this was supposed to be random... but it all ended up with a uniform pattern!!! Such is my way!!! And still with a diagonal line of white dots....  Ho Hum...)
And oh ... my favourite bit of detail... but unfortunately no detail photo taken... so probably difficult for you to see... 

Botanical Builder die cut Mint Macaron fronds... stamped with Mint Macaron Touches of Texture fine splat spray!!! Fabulous!!!! Incredible difference... so much more life like... try it and see....

Floral Affection Embossed CAS Duo

Sometimes really simple just does it for me! And these 2 small square cards are a case in point...
The depth using these Floral Affection embossing folders is just wow... I don't think anything else (apart from a Night of Navy mat and few gems) is needed...
Greetings from Floral Affection (sending a smile...) or One Big Meaning (Thank You...)

Copper Embossed Wreaths - and the Round Up picture....

So first the round up picture... 6 wreath variants for you... along with a laugh at my stupidness later!

So seeing as I had moved onto Christmas cards... I decided that a bit of copper embossing for my berries would add a bit of festive warmth...
The berries trio are actually from the Banners For You stamp set... bit of a find there!!
And then I realised that my Night of Navy ink pad was sorely in need of a re-ink... so I grabbed the ink refill and duly topped up my ink pad... carried on stamping another wreath - and a lot of flowers - which I duly cut out by hand for hours that night... and then I started to assemble a new card (coming your way soon)... 

And then it dawned on me... I had refilled with Island Indigo!!! I cannot repeat my language... 

Hence the change of colour for this last simple little Christmas wreath card... which uses the berries and greeting from Wondrous Wreath which I had out for the bow in any case
But worry not about my Night of Indigo pad... 10 minutes later and all was well and Night of Navy! Care of some major "ink pad direct stamping" on a few thicknesses of scrap paper ( by which I mean pressing my ink pad firmly onto the paper - again and again until all the ink had virtually gone leaving a very dry looking pad!) followed by the Night of Navy refill to revive it all.... phew...

And hey... tomorrow... not a wreath in sight!
