Lots of challenge cards and a naughty rotty !



Copic Colour challenge
I made this tilda card for the copic colour challenge Dt . I drew the trunk of the tree myself as i didnt have a tree stamp - i was really chuffed that it turned out so well. The leaves are punched out from a leaf punch.

Now i have such alot of catching up to with sending things to friends ... as i started this card i thought to myself how nice it would be to make a holder for some stamped images to send to a friend of mine, i also wanted to put a little tutorial together for her for colouring with copics... anyway like i said i had sooo much catching up on this to do that i ended up making rather a few and joining in on some challenges too!.

Card and gift set , Calvins cupcake Tutorial...

I made this little card and gift set from some papers i got from an old scrap-a- gogo kit .. they reminded me of chocolate ! sorry i dont know what they are called - i accidently threw the strip off!
The card has Tilda sat on a cake and i made some fimo earrings and a cupcake dolly to match.
The little box i made ages ago - Its called a mini pizza box if you look in google there should be a few tutorials on how to make it.

The little cupcake dolly has a hat with a cupcake shape and a cherry on the top !
she is also holding a tiny cupcake and looks like she is ready to eat it !!


The lid opens up to reveal the earrings cutely attached to a stand... I used a stamping up scallop circle for the middle ...

I cut up a cellophane card bag and glued it inside for the window.



When the earrings are taken out , they have there own stand.
I used a martha stewart punch for the bottom.

Want to know how to make the cupcake earrings ... well i think we are just in time for Calvin Mouse to shows --- p.s .... watch out for Rotty Rat in the photo..... calvin my boyfriend and his two girls are up for a week and Rotty hasnt been behaving at all !!!!!

CALVIN MOUSE CUPCAKE EARRINGS TUTORIAL FOR KIDS AND ADULTS.
some adult supervision and help required.

YOU WILL NEED..
CHAMPANGE COLOURED FIMO ( OR ANY LIGHT CREAMY COLOUR)
DARK BROWN FIMO
A BIT OF RED FIMO..
EYELET PINS
EARRINGS.
SUPER GLUE...( MAKE SURE AN ADULT DOES THIS )



Always soften the fimo first by rolling it into a ball and sausage shapes, this makes it easy to model. Always wash your hands before modelling..

Crafty Tuesday !



Well todays been a busy day ! Ive made two cards .. heres my entry for the friday Stetchers challenge card - the basic challenge is in there somewhere ... i think i may have gone alittle over the top with the corners !
The image is Tilda and i believe its one of the new spring collection I stamped out when having a crafty afternoon with Juliet a blogging buddy.

This card is made using the Cute Daisy May image downloads , isnt she cute ! They remind me of '50's dolly images ! I remember buying dollies and on the packaging would be an image very simular to this one . It brought back lovely memories .
Cute Daisy May have a challenge blog , if you want to take part in the challenges its here..
