CCT ~ 'my sort of friend'

Hello!  it's CCT time again and this week's theme is 'play on words' so for mine I used this cute High Hopes stamp and the sentiment 'you're my snort-a friend!' :D

Those eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that my card isn't on the CCT blog this week and that's because I have decided to relinquish my DT post as I want a total break from any sort of deadline craft making if that makes sense. So from now on this blog will get even quieter as I want to spend what free time I have actually crafting rather than blogging about it!

I'll still upload photos of cards/projects as I want to continue documenting my creations just for my own record it just may be more erratic.

So on that note, thanks for dropping by and I hope you'll continue to drop by every now and again. Best get back to work.

CCT Material girl!

Hello & happy Thursday to you all!  It's time for another CCT card and the theme this week is 'material girl' so we want to see some sort of fabric/material on your cards.

For mine I have used some gorgeous black lace and also a couple of little lilac fabric flowers that I found in my stash that went perfectly with this super sassy Kraftin Kimmie stamp.
Don't you love the fold of this card?!  I happened to come across this over on Frances' blog (who in turn saw it on someone else's blog which you can see, along with instructions, if you click on the link) and just had to try it.  I think I will be using this style again once I perfect my measuring/folding as my scorpal is in inches and the instructions were in cms and I did it by guestimate this time.

Image has been decoupaged - 1 of the feathers, her head, body arms and 1 of her legs (think you can just about see it on the first photo if you click on it) and I've cut her out with oval nesties.  Added lots of sparkle with my Sakura stardust pens to her feathers, shoes and eyeshadow - think can see that better on photo below.  Bit of black doodling around the oval and couple of black bling gems to finish.

Stash:

  • Stamps: 'Vivienne' comes with the sentiment ~ Kraftin Kimmie



  • Colouring: Copics & Sakura stardust pens



  • Paper: MME, not sure which stack!



  • Tools: Oval nesties,



  • Others: black lace trim, fabric flowers. black gems

    Well, thanks for dropping by. I'm posting less and less these days and am considering not blogging at all or maybe just give it a break for a while, will let you know what I decide. Until then,
