Christmas Balls, Brownies, P. Rabbit Tags, Cards, F. Boucher & FREEBIE

Create with the Famous Brownies

Florence  made a card for this weeks Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge. The challenge this week is Make Your Mark. To see full details of the challenge and to see the wonderful projects from the DT girls (sending you all crafty hugs) please click on the link above. She used my funny and so cute "

This week Nicecrane Designs is sponsering the challenge so I have used one of their digi stamps.

LOL! I can not reduce the size of the photo. Anyone know how to. Everything I used to do does not work anymore. Looks great in draft and then……

I printed my Brownie digi stamp onto plain white card. I placed a piece of copier paper over the image and held it against the window. I then drew around the outline, using a pencil to make a mask. I cut the mask out and placed it over my brownie image and then stamped all over using some rubber stamps from my stash.

I added a very tiny domino at the bottom for the age of the recipiant of this card. I found these little tiny dominos in the pound shop. My bargain of the week 60p for a set.

These are the digi stamps that I used in my project.

Stunning Christmas Ball by Vicky

So I just had to try this out!!! The Vintage Christmas ball Pyramid sheet comes with 2 set of images. I decided to double the printing so that I could do a Ball that would have the same image on both side. It's pretty easy to do. You cut out the template and then layer up the pieces using some foam pop up.Here's the preview of the set So exciting that it's my make that's used as the preview ;o)
Vintage Christmas Ball (Pyramid Style) I
Create your Christmas Ball

I used some cardstock that came with a package as a base for both of these. I was really wondering how I would take pictures of these... and then I remembered my banana rack lol it worked!!!
So I fussy cut the image 6 times. It comes in little circles prenumbered... so you really can't mess it up. I punched a hole and added a little ribbon from my stash. I also put stickles on the side to add interest.

A closer  look (Front View)
Here's a closer look (Back View)

And the side view so you see the nice depth

I'm really really liking these!!!! I'm thinking that I could also use them to embellish my Christmas bags!!!! If you haven't check out this store I highly suggest you do!

Inspired by Nature Card

I  really love the work by Shirley working with my "A Child Garden of Verses Pack": September always makes me think about Autumn. When making this I must have had this is mind because these colours certainly remind me of it. Paper pieced the main image but left the other stamping plain

Autum Card by Shirley (love it)
Love this Autum Colours,,,,and the vintage effect.

Watch some previous works with this pack:

And here is my Save Pack

Right let’s get onto my It’s A Hoot album

Shirley also was working with my "Fascinating Francoise Boucher" .All was covered with a coat of gesso then used the Imagination Crafts Moonlight Owl stencil with a paste which I acquired from a Lidl’s food store (so cheap and very good). Next step was to cover with Antique Linen distress stain, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze before adding a coloured gilding wax. The egg stamps are from Stampin Ups Nature Walk.

François Boucher (1703-1770), was a masterful French painter of the rococo age, extremely popular then and ever since. He began his artistic career working as an engraver and at the age of 17 entered the art studio of François Le Moyne, who in 1736 became First Painter to King Louis XV. Much of Boucher's early works show the influence of his teacher, but he was also greatly impressed by the delicate style of his contemporary Antoine Watteau. In 1723 Boucher won the Prix de Rome and studied in Rome from 1727 to 1731. Unlike many artistis of the day, he turned what he studied into a uniquely personal style, suitable for large-scale decorations as well as small intimate, so-called cabinet pictures

Enjoy This amazing Album

The inside page has been covered with paper for a little contrast but I painted the glaze over the edges of the die and the stamped images. The images are from Nicecrane Designs.

Next page has been created very similar to the front but I used the Mini Art Is stencil from TCW for the background. The die is Chesapeake Circle from Memory Box which I cut twice then overlayed one onto the other. Added gauze over the top but it obscured the image so I made a cut across the middle and pulled back. Covered her and the clock with a coat of glossy accents.
