Steampunk Slinging & Shaking

How many times have I coloured up an image, then put it in my folder and it's just sat there for who knows how long?!  Sometimes I think it's just waiting for the right inspiration to happen before I actually make a card. This time it was Alyce at Kit & Clowder who gave me some inspiration. She's been making shaker cards to go with the last monthly class images. I haven't made a shaker for ages, so I immediately made a couple.  Not wanting to let shakers sit like I do with images, I thought of the perfect coloured image straight away and got a card made.  
The image I have used is the very awesome 'Lahla Steampunk Gunslinger' from Faery Ink. I am quite addicted to Amanda's images and they are often my naughty impulse buys! As she's a Steampunk Faery I had to add a bit of electricity to her wings. 

Product list:

  • Kraft card blank
  • Papermania Chronology designer papers
  • X-Cut scalloped circle and circle nesting dies
  • Cuttlebug Embossables acetate
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain

I couldn't resist joining in the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge this month. The theme is 'Once Upon A Time' so we'd love to see your story-inspired makes. 

One of my favourite books as a child was 'The Worst Witch' by Jill Murphy and I actually still have my original copy!

I have used 'Big Pumpkin' to make a pop-up card for my inspiration.  I made one of these last Halloween and I really love the design.  It can be given as a card, or if you're like me and can't bear to part with it, used as a decoration!

Oh So Pretty

Come on crafters, tell me the truth - do you have some stash that rarely gets used because you keep on buying new stuff?  We're probably all guilty of that. I am making a bit of an excuse that since moving to Canada, my craft supplies are in a couple of big boxes under the stairs.  It's not easy getting to the stuff at the back, so I just use what is easier to reach! 
Saying that though, I have the complete Mint Julep collection from Basic Grey that I won a few years ago.  It's actually in easy reach, I just haven't used it for ages *shame face*.
Something else I won, more recently, is the gorgeous 'Braids In My Hair' image by Conie Fong.  I coloured her up in gorgeous red and pink tones, then did my usual sitting and wondering what to do with her.  So out came the Mint Julep. It's a really gorgeous collection and I was extremely lucky to win everything.  I hate it when I have part of a collection and not much to go with it. 

Product list:
  • Cream card blank
  • Basic Grey Mint Julep papers and embellishments
  • Tonic Tim Holtz paper distresser
  • Ranger Stickles, Christmas Red
  • ProMarkers - Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin, Burnt Sienna, Oatmeal, Shale, Cardinal, Hot Pink, Lipstick, Antique Pink, Pale Pink, Almond, Pumpkin, Warm Grey 1 & 2

Merry Christmoose

I was lucky enough to win a set of Canadian-themed stamps by Frog's Whiskers Ink from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine a few weeks ago, so thought I'd have a play with them.  It's been a while since I did any tapestry stamping so I used these stamps in conjunction with some other stamps I have, to create a Christmas card.  It feels weird to me now making a card without a digital stamp, but I realise how much I love playing with real stamps.
I can never get my writing as nice as I'd like when writing sentiments, but I didn't have anything suitable for this card. I really wanted to to a pun-ny sentiment!

Products used:

  • Cream card blank
  • Papermania snowflake stamps (free from a set in the magazine)
  • See-D's Morsels stamps 'Springtime Collection'
  • Frog's Whiskers Inks stamps 'Maple Leaf' & 'Moose'
  • Whispers inks
  • Black pen

Mermaid in a Vase

Well I've already shown you the card I made for my friend's 50th birthday, so today I will show you her present.  We'd been talking a while ago and I said I really wanted to make a mermaid in a jar, so that's what I did! 
I didn't want anything too cutesy, so chose to use 'Pin Up Mermaid' by JadeDragonne.  She's absolutely perfect for this project, sitting in her shell.  It was quite fiddly adding all the glass beads for bubbles. I couldn't get the invisible thread to knot big enough, so had to glue them in the end! 
I'm so happy with how this project turned out. It's just what I had in my mind.

Product list:
  • Glass vase
  • Course stone granules
  • Shells
  • Plastic foliage
  • Glass beads
  • Cheesecloth
  • Starfish
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Almond, Cardinal, Ruby, Lipstick, Black, Aegean, Duck Egg, Cool Grey 5, Burgundy, Antique Pink, Pale Pink, Saffron, Blush, Satin, Slate, Violet, Lavender, Caramel, Sandstone, Vanilla & Cool Aqua
