Buttons and bits

Well the school holidays are well underway at Crafty Roo HQ and so far Little Lady has gone through more tubes of glue and more rolls of tape than I care to think about! But a few buttons managed to escape the sticky mess and got turned into this little beauty.

To make this card I stamped our new Button Mum saying onto a piece of handmade paper and tore around the edges.

I then cut a 5.5inch square piece of white card and distressed around the edge, onto it, in the two opposite corners I attached two 10cm squares of handmade paper.  Around the edges of the white card and the handmade papers I doodled some stitches. Around the left hand side I attached some ribbon and lace. This was then attached to a 6 inch square kraft card.

The sentiment was added to  the centre of the card and buttons attached around the card to finish off.

I hope you like our stamps, if you do why not check out our website.

After the arctic conditions on this mornings school run I thought I would cheer myself up with a bunch of tulips.

This card can be adapted for any occasion. 

I started by cutting a piece of pink and a piece of white card 5.5 inch square. Across the bottom of the pink card stamp your sentiment, place the white card over the top of the pink one and mark on the white card there the sentiment begins. Now tear across the white card, so that when it is on the top of the pink card you can see the sentiment and there is a slight border. Next stamp the tulips all over it , distress around it and attach it to the pink card. Doodle around the three un torn edges of the white card, attach some ribbon across the center of the card and attach it to a 6 inch square Kraft card.

Onto a small piece of white card stamp the tulip 3 times, colour them in doodle around the edge and amount onto pink card. Attach this onto the base card.

Finally Add two card candis to the top corners of the white card and a clear gem on each corner around the tulips.

OH NO!!!!!!!

So, what do you do if you drop a Jelly Baby or two????? 

Make a card of course......

To make this card I dusted off the Jelly Babies with a paint brush and covered them in a Sealer and left them to dry. 

I then cut a piece of white card 5inch square and about a thrid of the way up the card I stamped "You're so sweet" and the hearts and kisses from our new Valentines Greetings stamp set, coloured in the hearts and doodled around the edge. This was then mounted onto a piece of yellow card, brads were added to each corner and this was then mounted onto a 6 inch square card.

Next I cut a small piece of white card big enough for the three fella to fit on and a larger piece in yellow. I doodled around the edge of the white piece of card and mounted this onto the yellow, added brads and attached this to the card.

To finish of the card I attached the three fellas and added glossy accents to the hearts.

I can't stress this enough DO NOT EAT THE SWEETS!!!!!!!!  But how cool hey!

Mothers Day.

I know its a while away but I was given some handmade papers and all I could think was how gorgeous they would look with Daisy Doodles so here they are, beautiful hey!

To make this one I stamped detailed Daisy onto the handmade paper 6 times and the detailed leaf 8 times and cut them out.

Onto a cream piece of card I stamped Mother into the centre and distressed around the edge using purple ink. Next I wet a piece of kitchen towel and stamped the solid Daisy stamp onto it then onto the card to remove the ink from the card. when it was dry I then 2nd generation stamped the detailed Daisy stamp in purple ink. This was then mounted onto a pale purple card and then onto a dark purple base card.

I two opposite corners I added a metal emblishment and across the bottom I added some cream ribbon. In the top left hand corner I arrange the cut out flowers and attached them to the card. Finally I added some Stickles to the flowers.

I can believe how quick and easy this card was and also howmuch i love those handmade papers!!!!!
