About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Party Paws Gift Bag and Gatefold Card

To make up for losing a whole day yesterday, I am back with two more projects this afternoon. This first offering is made using one of the fabulous stamp sets - this one is called Noel and I decided to make it into a gift bag.
I used Spectrum Noir pens to colour the image in:
Dark fur: IG9, 8, 7, 6, 5
Light Fur Shading: IG1, 2
Cheeks: FS6, Blender
Hat: DR3, CR11, 9, 7
Hat Trim Shading: TB1, Blender
Present - DR2, CR11, 9, 7; GT3, 2, 1
To make the bag, I folded one sheet of red card to make the bag itself, and mounted the image onto a Die'sire Elegance Stamping Frame, with a piece of paper printed from the CD. I used lots of ribbon for the handle and the bow on the front to echo the ribbon on the image.

The second project is a card from the Kit. This is an offset gatefold card, made from one of the sheets of printed card, with one of the toppers mounted on to some gold satin foiled card. The green card is Core'dinations. 
I then used the Die'sire Holly die and cut both the small and large ones from both the green and gold card. I used pearls for the berries. 

Sorry there's not too much detail but my head is beginning to ache again - so I'm trying to get this down as quick as possible.

I'll be back tomorrow with more.
