Well, the last few days I have been in a really bad mood where I have 'hated the world'. Due to this I have stayed away from the Internet etc as I didn't want to say something I shouldn't lol
Even though I have been away, I have carried on crafting and would like to share my makes with you all.....
Monday 13.08.2012 - CraftyMess Daily Challenge - Cheer Someone Up
I decided for once to be selfish and I made these rings and earrings sets for MYSELF to cheer ME up!
I saw quite a few presenters and demonstrators on create and craft wearing button rings and thought 'I could make them'. I ordered all the stuff from eBay and set to work as soon as they arrived.
I stuck 3" clown buttons onto 8mm round adjustable ring bases with pinflair. I pushed gems into the button holes to stick to the pinflair that was pushed through. I stuck the earrings in the same way.
I am so pleased with how these have turned out and I will be making some more sets to sell at craft fairs etc.
Tuesday 14.08.2012 - CraftyMess Daily Challenge - Dinosaurs
To make this card I used backing papers from a paper pad I have had for a while and a freebie die cut that I received with a purchase from eBay.
The bottom paper with the dinosaurs on is actually glittery, but it was hard to get it to show in the photo so I gave up lol
I layered the papers with a dark green ribbed card and added a card ribbon from the same card. I finished the card off with green and silver Card Candi.
I am quite pleased with this card as I do struggle with 'boy cards'.
Wednesday 15.08.2012 - CraftyMess Daily Challenge - Butterflies
I purchased quite a few packs of these papers and toppers in various designs and colours, but have never used this set before.
I used a rusty coloured embossed card base on a A5 white card. I layered two of the toppers with foam pads and covered the top one with decoupage lacquer. I used a ripped paper border which matches the toppers, butterflies and the sentiment. I finished off with gold Card Candi. Simple but lovely card in my mind and I was pleased with it.
Thursday 16.08.2012 - CraftyMess Daily Challenge - Favourite Animal and Colour
Another card from my Crafters Companion Moreheads CD. I used one of the pre-designed card sheets but I printed off two and cut and jigged it about to make it 'myown'. I used a glitter pen to go round the edges of the patterned papers and also to highlight the writing and the picture. I used glossy accents on the flower, nose and eye on the image.
I finished off glossing the fake bow and finished with foe pearls.
Yes it is cutie cutie but I love puppies and I love PINK!!
Random Make lol
I often go back to my 'Tatty Ted' kits as I love them and are always a favourite. The image is decoupaged and I have glossed parts of it to highlight.
The backing paper is a k&co one mounted on pearlised textured card which I also mounted the image and the sentiment on. I finished off with a tonic border punch and little pink and yellow gems in the punched details.
Love this card as it is really simple!
I have made eight of these tags, one for each of the goodie bags for the ladies I am meeting in October from the CraftyMess facebook group. We are having a weekend in Kettering to craft, drink, laugh and generally misbehave hahaha need I say more??? NO lol
Well, that was a long post....if you are still reading and looking then thank you. If you aren't, then I honestly don't blame you lol
