morning I uploaded my That’s the Tag Thank You Card video which features the card I shared here
I made two changes from the original card; the first of which is that I used Envelope
Paper for the card you’ve already seen, and I used Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper for the video.
The only real
reason for the change was that Watermelon Wonder was the only Envelope
Paper I have left in that particular design. I do have plenty of the diagonal
stripe design that comes in the pack, but I didn’t think it looked quite
I made the Sweet Sugarplum before I made the video, which
sees me using Blushing Bride. It doesn’t look as if I’ve photographed it, so I’ll remember to do it today and post here tomorrow!
I started making this design, I’ve found that the Gold Wink of Stella
Glitter Pen is brilliant for the centres of the flowers – a quick and
easy way to add some glitter! If you prefer more glitter, you could
paint the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen over the flower petals and
ribbon I used on the video is the 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in
Blushing Bride. The hole in the tag is quite small to get the two pieces of ribbon
through, but I demonstrate the easy way to do it on the video!
succulents are becoming extremely popular and I have seen some really
fantastic creations that have been made.
It dawned on me at the weekend I
have a basket shaped tin on my kitchen window sill that would be ideal
for making something like this.
Fortunately, it’s quite small so I
wouldn’t have to make too many succulents to make it look full, but I don’t know if it’s too
small! Anyway, I digress!
I asked hubby if he’d pop to his local garden
centre where he works to get me some moss for my basket. He saw this fox
and hyacinth and just had to buy it. What a great way to advertise our Foxy
Friends Bundle? Unfortunately, the hyacinth looks a bit sorry for
I’m going to give it lots of TLC to see if I can get it to look
better. Does anybody know if I’m in with a chance, or will it always look
When the hyacinth is really past its best, I’m thinking a succulent would look nice in its place. My first craft show is in March and this could be a great centre piece for a featured display of one, possibly two, bundles!
I have a very busy day today as I have two classes booked for this weekend, and I need to plan two cards and a 3D project, and then prepare all the packets!
Never a dull moment! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
