Crystal Butterfly

Hi everyone. I'm still making Christmas gifts.  I'm so far behind schedule I'm not sure if I will be finished in time.  All that aside, it's great to have an excuse to do some much crafting.

This is a new trinket box that I have made.  I love making these and they make such great gifts.  This one is hand stamped with fairy writing in faded jeans distress ink.  The tag was done using the same colour.

I have used an Anitas  dimensions butterfly as well as a die cut butterfly in silver and lots of 2mm clear crystals.  I love my flowers and the ones I get from Wild Orchid Crafts are great.

The blue ribbon matches the one I used on the tag and the cream lace works really well with the ivory flowers.

I am entering this trinket box in the following challenges:-

Everybody Art - Little present
My Time To Craft - Take two - I used two butterflies
One Stop Craft - Ribbons and lace

White Christmas

White on white cards are a scary prospect for me.  I've made white on white cards before, but it is always a struggle.  I quite enjoyed making this one tho.  I love this lace and Kenny K digis are so easy to use, this one just sort of came together.

This was a very easy make.  Cuttlebug embossing folders, Spun Sugar distress ink, some luscious lace and a few pearls.  I couldn't resist adding some iridescent glitter glue.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:-

Craft your passion - Let it snow
Crafty Catz - Use a digi
Fab n Funky - All white on the night
Kenny K Krafty Girlz - Emboss away
The crafty pad - White on white

Flutteby Red

It has been a week or two since my last post as life has taken over my little bit of crafty time.  Luckily, I have been able to do a bit over the last two days.  I have a list of Christmas cards that I am making  along with presents for family members.  There just are not enough crafting hours in the day.  This little wooden box was made for fun, so no pressure :-)

I love doing these trinket boxes.  Exploring the possibilities of what I can do with them and what new techniques I can try.

This one is hand stamped using tea dye distress ink on the top and the tag.  I bought the fairy writing stamp a while a go for a project that I haven't gotten around to starting yet, so this is the first time I have used it.  I have also used the tea dye ink around the sides to add colour and heat set it.  The butterflies are embossed with gold embossing powder and I have added some 2mm gems.  This is the first time that I have tried using a tag on one of my trinket boxes and I am very pleased with the result.

I am entering my box  for the following challenges:-

Craft Your Passion - Anything goes + Brown
Kaboodle Doodles - Fall colours
The Crazy Challenge - Something with wings
