I hope today finds you well.
Sorry I was AWOL yesterday .. .. .. it was wedding bells from dawn until dusk and by the time I had finished I decided it was just "too late to post" .. .. .. so I had a relax on the sofa with hubby instead .. .. where we both nodded off and woke up at gone midnight to go to bed LOL!!
So today I am a little earlier to make up for being lazy yesterday and here is my make:
Image: Penny Black "2243K" Bee Costume
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers: Papermania "The Big One"
Leone Em Pty Punch: Ash Branch
ProMarkers and Chalk
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Ribbon, Brad and Button from the Stash Box
I am also going to enter this creation into Lisa's Waste Not Wednesday Challenge .. .. a fabby challenge to encourage us all to use up our old and neglected stash. For me the "old and neglected" part is the paper stack from Papermania. It is just too, too big .. .. if that can be possible!! So many pages and taking up far too much room in the little craft pod!!
Quite a few people commented and emailed about the flowers I put on my Snippet make on Sunday. So in answer to your questions here are a couple of pictures showing what I use and how I make them:
Here are the different elements I have used.
All punches are by Woodware.
Daisy Flowers in two sizes
and the centre is called Blink Blink (this comes in different sizes but mine is a fraction under 1" across)
Rather than just use the punched flowers flat I like to add a bit of dimension by pinching each petal around the thumbnail on my opposite hand.
I do this to how ever many layers I am adding to my flower and then make a hole through the centre to hold everything together with a brad.
I never actually poke the brad through my card base. I don't like to see the "legs" inside my card and I don't like the look when I try to cover them up .. .. so I open the brad legs up onto the back of my flower and then stick the flower onto my card using a hot glue gun .. .. though any strong glue would suffice.
So that is me for today.
Dinner break over and back to favour boxes for me.
Enjoy the rest of Tuesday everyone.
