Furry Friends

A quick card using the Furry Friends CD from Joanna Sheen.

I matted the image onto blue shiny paper, and added a punched butterfly, sticky gems and eyelash yarn. The sentiment is a Polkadoodles stamp.

I'd like to enter this card into Make it Monday's linky party.

Knitted Flower Brooch & Box

For the box lid I used white card printed with paper from Polkadoodles Sundae of Seasons CD, the flowers are stamps that came with Craft Stamper magazine, I stamped them with black ink and heat embossed them, and put sticky gems in the centres.

For the scalloped circle I used white card decorated with blue and green marbling inks, I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I also inked around the edges and embossed that too. I also used the same marbled card to stamp the flowers on. Punched out butterflies and baker's twine wrapped round the scalloped circle.

Inside the box is a knitted flower brooch, the outer blue petals I knit with aran wool and the inner green petals are double knitting. The pattern is from this book.

Wine Bottle Easel Card

This week at Polkadoodles they're having a blog hop, and their challenge is to make a male themed project, and to include a button and a circle. I made this thank you easel card to enter into the challenge.

All elements for the card are by Polkadoodles - the backing papers are from their Father's Day download, which Nikky is kindly giving as a freebie for the duration of the hop, the wine bottle and glass are from the Not For Girls CD and the lettering is from the Candy Doodles CD.

I also added a wine cork as the easel stopper, made a wine glass charm for the glass, added string and raffia, a button, Cuttlebug embossing and a bit of glitter.

I would also like to enter this into Stampin With The Dragon's challenge to make an easel card.
