Easter Blossom Silk!

Hey everyone!

I have workshops this week and I decided I would teach my class the Faux Silk technique and combine it with an Easter theme. I’m not an Easter card maker and sender, but I do love creating gift boxes for the chocolatey goodness. This time though I made a matching card for the box.

The box design is very similar to the one on page 8 of the Summer mini catalogue but with a few of my own touches added to it.

The card and some closeups of the box’s finer details

Oohh I am liking these closeups!! I might have to do that more often! LOL! The brown paper is the packing from SU deliveries. I just passed it through a shredder. The eggs are Cadbury Mini Eggs and resemble Smarties, M&M’s and the like, they are crisp shell with chocolate inside…..MMMmmmmm…YUMMY!!! I made this project with these eggs in mind. I bought them last year and just loved them. I made this project before I bought them and was hoping that they would make a comeback this year so I could use them specifically for this project. I used colours Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride and Perfect Plum.

Well I best get packing for my workshop!

Inkspiration Challenge#37

Hey everyone!

I’m so excited at the moment! I have improved my creative workspace in many ways and it all started when my printer crapped itself. I was so annoyed, because I had so much printing off to do. So on Monday I went to officeworks to get myself a new one.  Big mistake!……..well for the bank account anyway! I will take some photos of my get up and post them tomorrow for you all!

But anyway onto this weeks challenge! It is a sketch, but as it is the last friday of the month that means one of the DT is hosting and it is Chantelle’s turn. Chantelle has also added her own twist to the challenge and it is to ADD POLKA DOTS !!!

So what do you think? I think I like it! I had a play with my new hostess set Apple Blossom. I love the little elements in this set. Lots of fun! 

  • Stamp Set– Apple Blossoms
  • Cardstock– Naturals Ivory, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi
  • Ink– Rose Red, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi
  • Accessories– So Saffron button, Linen Thread, Polka Dot Textured Impressions, Dimensionals,

The strip of Wild Wasabi CS has had the fibres pulled apart to give the suede effect and then I just screwed it up to distress it and then when I stuck it down I bunched it up to give the ruffled look! I like the effect and might do it some more.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the DT







They will have something fabulous for you all to see! They always do.
