Hi crafty people, how are you all today? I’ve not been on the blog for a few days and I’m aware I have quite a few comments to respond to and blogs to catch up with. Very sadly my father in law passed away very suddenly at the weekend so we have been pretty shocked and trying to get our heads around it. We are not able to travel to South Africa for the funeral due to the lockdown so we will be watchng it online on Friday morning which will be very strange. Thank goodness for technology in times like this.
I shared some handmade embellishments on my youtube video today as part of a collaboration. I thought I would share a few pictures and say hello.
There are also some cute mini envelopes and mermaid rosettes in the video which you can watch here.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate every comment and like left on my blog. I’ll be back tomorrow for another blog post, hope you are all doing well.
Hello again crafty people! I’m back with my second blog post today…. well it’s actually my third as my guest post is up over at The Paper Tree tutorial blog! I was very kindly gifted the Penguin Agenda stamp set by Jeni over at The Paper Tree. This is such a cute stamp set and it’s even on special offer at the moment!
I loved the phone theme in the stamps so for this project I made a cute little mobile phone embellishment. I used black centura card (5 x 8 cm) and white card (4 x 6.5 cm) with the corners rounded. I added a small silver circle. I blended some lucky clover distress ink through a circle stencil before adding one of the wee party penguins on a 3d sticky pad. The sentiment is in the set.
I masked a stripe along my card base and blended some distress oxides (twisted citron, cracked pistachio, lucky clover, peacock feathers, salty ocean and blueprint sketch). I also blended some lucky clover on a piece of scrap card to add make a mat for the sentiment. The finishing touch is a few Nuvo jewel drops in key lime, aqua plains and steel blue.
I hope you like my penguin phone, I got a little addicted and made a few more, which I’m sharing over on instagram today. Check out my project for The Paper Tree on their blog.
