And now for a gift bag

The current challenge on Our Creative Corner is for 3D projects so this is what I've decided to make. After a spat of cards, I decided to return to my earlier love and that is the gift bag. So here is the party fairy on a quick and easy gift bag.
The beautiful hot pink gingham ribbon is just in and just £1.50 for 3 metres.

Are you dying to get your hands on these Images?

Cute Cats

I'm quite excited because I'm going to be demonstrating for Kuretake at the Cardiff Hobbycraft. So if you want a sneek preview of what I'm going to be doing then here are the cards.

Tha background is achieved really simply by using a Zig Dottariffic pen in black to dot the card. The more pressure you apply the bigger the dot. I just applied the dots randomly to the top third of the card.

Going Dotty with Dottariffics

I really do love cards with spots. I've made this card with my Dottariffic pens from Kuretake. Dottariffics are being phased and Craft Fairy is one of the few remaining sites that has them in stock so get them quickly or loose out forever. To achieve the effect seen here use pastel colours. If you want to be far bolder than go for the bright pure colours.

If you want to make this card then you can get the sentiment from this sheet of stamps.

Happy crafting.

Spots it is.

When I saw this challenge on the Papertake Weekly Blog I knew that I just had to join in with it as I really do love cards with spots. I've made this card with my Dottariffic pens from Kuretake. The two colours that I've used are:

Light Pink
English Lavender

  1. You will need a base card. I used an A5 card scored and folded in half.

  2. A piece of thin lavender card and another thin piece of white card to layer over the lavender card.

  3. Use the fat end of the Dottariffic pens to make random dots over top two thirds of the piece of white card. I made them different sizes. You can do this easily by pressing heavier of lighter with the pen.

  4. I then used the thick and thin end of both colours to draw lines over the bottom third of the card as seen. I didn't use a ruler, I just drew them freehand. I think that the lines look a bit like an old fashion set of pyjamas.

  5. Use a bow shaper to tie a bow in a piece of 7cm lilac grosgrain ribbon, and don't cut the bow off the ribbon. Stick it to the card to cover the join between the spots and the lines.

  6. Now stemp your chosen sentiment on a piece of white card and stick it behind the white frame. I used ed foam pads from Stix2 to do this. I also coloured the edges of the frame with the lavender dottariffic.

  7. Mount the decotated card onto lilac card and then trim it and stick it to the base card and you're finished.

You can make this card yourself with the pens and the sentiment from the fantastic set of sentiment stamps below.

Happy crafting
