Stitching





 Good day

This New Year is a week old and for a lot of us it started with a bang. We had some exciting news and some very heart broken news so far. Hope your dreams and plans for 2022 realize and that life will treat your gently.

I made this for a friend of mine that is actually a quilter. The image is from Di's Digis and is called measure up mice. The papers are from Stitched with Love. A new paper stack from my Christmas goodies. I used the thread dies from Lena Nielsen for the first time, though I had it almost a year now, as well as Crealies and Spellbinder. Some off-cuts, ribbon, lace from my stash as well as eyelets. I used some crosses from a negative die for the edge. The sentiment - May your stitching be beautiful and flawless on this Birthday - I have found on the internet.

Challenges I'm joining:
Stamping Sensation - Anything goes with stamping and dies
2 Sisters #58 - Text, eyelets, Bow
C.R.A.F.T #623 - New (paper, image & first use of die)

Twisted pop up card fro a coffee lover






Good day

One of my close friends celebrated her birthday lately and I made this twisted pop up card for her. She loves coffee, so I had to be creative since I do not have a mug die cut. So I used the bottom part of a dress with a piece of a swirl to create the mug/cup. I used some dry embossing with foil on the mug/cup and on the sentiment - that still come from my French days - I used some ink smooching on watercolor paper, - I used Alcohol ink in stream & Ruby and pearl in pearl & lake. I also used some glitter spray mist over all the inks - then I cut the center piece out with a label die after the paper has dried. I used a bigger die of the same lot and used an emboss folder from Marianne's design. Add it to the back and made a frame from a lighter blue that fitted insight the first cut. Added the mug/cup and the sentiment with some silver brads.
The inside I used papers from my stash and some Bugaboo digital images that I have coloured with my prisma pencils. 

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Crafty Catz #572 - Add some sparkle
Shopping our stash #458 - Tic tac toe - Ink smooching, stamps older than 3 years, foiling
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour 2 - 15 November - Colour wheel - 2 shades of blue + red

Thank you fro your visit.
Hugs from Africa!

Morgan's Art World #11 - Anything goes
Unicorn #71 - Christmas/Winter
Crafty Sentiment - Anything goes

For my second project I used Noël Christmas Mouse and again coloured it with my Prisma Pencils. I used paper from Rosy Cosy Christmas paper stack and some gingham from Sunny studios. I used a some recycled twine in my stash.
