Pizza Box ~ Colourific

Happy Colorific Thursday to you all
I am here today to share with you a gift box in the shape and opens like a pizza box 
(hmmm I always wonder about Pizza boxes being square and Pizza's being round and not only that we cut them into triangles to eat.....Yes I really need to get out more....)
 don't forget it's
 free delivery when you spend over £5 UK
Check out the store here
For todays make I used
Say it With Flowers (contains 8 stamps)
and
Art of Life (contains 4 stamps)


Pizza box or not I was going for the classy look and I always think Black/White fits the bill.
So I cut my box using black card stock and cutting a layer of white for the top panel

I stamped my flowers and sentiment
Painted the leafs and dotted around them

Then I used the wonderful nuvo drops
Crystal Drops - Gloss - Ebony Black
I love them they really shine

Wings Are A Thing ~ Stampotique

Excited muchly , this is my first Challenge post for Stampotique
Such an amazing DT I am so proud to work alongside them.
Some Important places of Interest for you
There Challenge Blog here
(Would love to see you join in and come visit your blog
You can use any stamps and you may win a great prize)
Check out Pinterest here
Instagram here
You can find the store over here
~~oo~~
This time the challenge is
Add Wings or Create With Wings

And Now I was feeling in an orange mood
Orange is the color of joy and creativity. Orange promotes a sense of general wellness and emotional energy that should be shared, such as compassion, passion, and warmth. Orange will help a person recover from disappointments, a wounded heart, or a blow to one’s pride.
I used some Gesso  on a canvas board and then coated using dylusions ink spray ~ Squeezed Orange.
I used a ray stencil on which I used Pinflair Gellitex I love the sparkle this gives (although hard to pick up with my little camera)

I used 
Background Stamp's  ~ Splatter Blob
                                         ~Texture Cube 1
I also used some sequin waste and random bottle tops
The main stamp The Queen of Everything ~ I adore her, she comes with the sentiment 

She has one set of wings but as the challenge was about wings I gave her two more sets
I coloured her using Distress Ink Refils and used some nuvo drops on her crown

So What are you waiting for
Don your Wings and come and join our Challenge

Happy Christmas with Pinflair

Happy Friday and Happy Christmas
I have been super busy lately making up samples for todays
Pinflair show on Create & Craft with the lovely Jo
who will be on your screens at 1.00pm ~2.00pm
~~oo~~
The whole team have been busy little Elves and had a wonderful time with lots of fun along the way
This will be a long post so why not grab a Hot Chocolate, a Gingerman Biscuit and soak up Christmas.....
Lets start with the Pinflair Shrink Wrap Collection
WOW simply amazing 
Just pop around your bauble , into freshly boiled water (taking lots of care here) using some tongs - and voila after seconds you have an amazing bauble
I have never used this shrink wrap I was absolutly amazed how easy it was and how stunning it looked

I also used some Puff Paste on this
Here is a trio I made , making them little gift boxes how nice would these be to give to friends
There are so many different designs , I really am thinking Teachers gifts here
I made the little boxes from Kraft card and added in some rafia also using this too tie the boxes also.
Making some little tags and adding some tiny bells
~~oo~~
Keeping on with the shrink wrap they also do sleeves!! Eeeks you can decorate your own wine bottles how cool is that 
I did not have any wine bottles to hand but I did have a little liquore brandy bottle (quite partial to a drop of Brandy! and it is Christmas after all)
I cut the wrap down to fit
A table decoration was born
~~oo~~
My next make was using a Poly ball
I covered this in Puff Paste and left to dry
I already had a circular poly frame so I made some Poinsetta flowers and covered it
I then Painted up the little deers from the Pinflair MDF Embellishment kit. For the paint I used
Pinflair Liquid Buff-It every crafter needs this in there life!!

~~oo~~
Then I played with the Pinflair Bauble tree
I was so , so in love with these
The first one I used Pinflair Liquid Buff-It and painted it , I think I may of used Emerald Green
I then used Gellitex through a star stencil, this was a little hard to see in the photo, but promise its there
I added a little tinsel and some silver stars 
For the base I used  Puff Paste as it was quite a big coating I left to dry over night
I used those scrummy reindeers that I used in my previous project  from the Pinflair MDF Embellishment kit.
I then decorated my Bauble using Pinflair Shrink Wrap Collection and added lots of gemstones for the extra sparkle
I added some little lights which also sit inside the bauble it looks so twinkly at night.




My other tree I did for some strange reason I do not have a seperate photo of it 
Again I used Pinflair Liquid Buff-It  to paint and used  Puff Paste to edge around and do the base. I also used the Pinflair MDF Embellishment kit for the smaller tree's and sign . I used a few random baby pine cones that I had in stash and just added a smidge of snow to each.
I made and added a matching Bauble as before



~~oo~~
For my final make I call it random, Using lots of bits and pieces from the kits and of course lots of snow
I love the tree's I can see them as lovely little place names at the Christmas dinner table

I hope you have enjoyed my makes and will manage to catch the show
I love working with the Pinflair team there so creative and the products are super duper wonderful

Felicity

Happy, Happy Thursday
I have something super special to share with you today
Chatting to Julia the owner of 
I asked if it would be possible to have a digi stamp for my Granddaughter Felicity.
She replied it would be quite quirky, fine by me
So I sent her a random photo of Felicity and 3 of her favourite loves
Cats she adores cats
Art she loves all forms of crafting
Writing she is at present writing a book which with help is hoping to get published one day
~~oo~~
And then it arrived to say I was gobsmacked would be under estimated
It had Felicity all over it 
The face was definatly her - The hair I always plait her hair before school!!
Even the tee shirt with flowers she owns several like that, cats ears she has those too
It really was as if Julia knew her ~ I promise they have never met!
Another great love of hers is Garden Centers she adores looking at all the lovely plants, she is often helping Grandad weeding and watering and of course has her special own patch at ours, so I wanted to incorporate those as well without making it over fussy.

Julia will be launching her brand new company very, very soon
I am sure there will be oodles and oodles of fun lovliness
I would highly reccomend Commissioned Digis

I was utterly in love and she needed to be turned into something special
After a little thinking I decided on a shadow box something I have not made in a while.
I coloured Felicity with Distress Ink Refils, keeping to colours she normally wears
How ever did Julia know she had cat ears???

I used my trusty BnM's paper to cover ~ This pack was called Grandmas Garden very apt!!
I did a little paper piercing too on her apron and skirt.
Colouring a few scrabble squares to spell out her name
Once finished I cut of more paper flowers /leaves and shaped those to give a lovely 3d dimension

I can't wait till Felicity finishes school and I can show her
I know she is so going love this and want to borrow it for her bedroom
