New Follower welcome!
First of all what a lovely surprise I had this morning when I found a have yet another new follower! Thank you for following me Julia, it's great that you decided to visit my little corner of blogland. I'm thinking that the number of comments I've had about my shell box has been amazing! I really did enjoy making it, altered art and mixed media projects give me so much pleasure when I have the time to make them and I have more lined up for when I have got to the end of my commissions that are left to make, before I can finally say I'm taking time off from them.
I do too much research and end up even more confused... that's my downfall...at the end of the day I guess it will be blog lovin' maybe both....or neither...LOL
Nicecrane DT Project
My latest DT project for Nicecrane Designs works with these cute little Kewpie digital stamps: Kewpies were comic strip-like illustrations by Rosie O'Neill, which appeared in Ladies Home Journal in 1909 and the name is derived from 'Cupid'. The drawings were very popular and later made into highly collectible dolls.
I have to say I am really enjoying working with the Vintage images from Nicecrane - visit the site http://nicecranedesigns.com to look at all the gorgeous images available to buy.
For this project I've made a card, gift box and bag,
all for a new baby...
I used a piece of white card that I had embossed through my Grand Calibur using the Sue Wilson Lattice Hearts folder, which I then inked all over using Broken China distress ink. I matched this with some blue gingham paper and ribbon and a sentiment from Pink Petticoat.
The image label comes on a sheet of different very cute images. I coloured this one with promarkers and die-cut using Spellbinders Classic Circles, before mounting on a scalloped circle made using a punch.
I also decorated the inside of the card with another image from the set as shown below.
My next creation in this little set is a small box made using my Hougie board and a Hougie template for a favour box..I printed several of the Kewpies on to blue card before making the box. It's a simple petal fold box and I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the decorative edge across the top. The image was again coloured with promarkers and I added a second Kewpie to give movement. I did the same on the other side of the box and add a bow to finish.
I also made a little gift card holder, again using Hougie. I chose the same image for the front to give continuity through the set and decorated both the inside and out of the card.
Thank you for stopping by today and putting up with my Google Reader ramblings...it's great when you have no idea what your on about...I think I am going to not do a thing! Phew after all that, I'm off to do some crafting!
See you tomorrow!
