Butterfly toppers

Hi all, hope you are well.
Today's post is to show you some more toppers that I have been busy making. Just love doing these all at the mo and cant wait to get some on Ebay!!
To make these I used a Cheery Lynn Designs set of butterflies. There are 3 in a set. Once stuck to the cocktail stick I added some liquid pearls to the body and antennae.
I love these and will be doing a variety of colours.

Happy crafting, please come back soon.

Cupcake Toppers

Hi all, hope you are well on this horrible damp morning.
Today's post is to show you some new items I have made. As everyone is into cupcakes at the mo, and we enjoy them also, I thought I would make some toppers.
I printed the pics, after resizing into a circle the same size as one of my nesties, and cut them out. I then mounted them onto a scalloped circle. On one side I added a cocktail stick before the picture and these are the finished articles. Any pic is possible and I have also done some of my daughter Sophie with Joey Essex who she met a couple of months ago. They can be made for absolutely any occasion.
Please leave any comments as I read them all and please check back soon to see further ideas.
 This girl with balloons is a Saturated Canary digi which I coloured in, took a pic of then resized.
 This fireman with a cat is a Crafts U Print digi design which again was coloured and then resized after taking a photo.
 These slogans were done on Word Art and the colour was changed. They could be done in any colour.
 This is my darling daughter Sophie with Joey Essex. She loved these toppers when she saw them!!
Happy crafting everyone.

Bit of experimenting!!!

Hi everyone, hope you are well. Left it too long again and have so much I've been doing just never had time to sit and blog. Think I may have to set some time aside and write a few posts and schedule them!!!Today's post is to show you some flowers I have made today using a die I bought at Oyster Stamps today. The lady who served me was very helpful in showing some flowers she had made and giving me tips to do them. Really its just a case of experimenting until you are happy with the finished product.
(Sorry the pics are sideways, they were the right way on my pc but I'm still getting use to taking pics with Iphone and them being automatically loaded onto pc!)
This is the die I used. There is a small and a large one in the packet.....
These are the punched out shapes.....
...and this is the finished result. The top one is my second attempt which I think I used a few more layers on than my first but still quite pleased with the finished article. Now just need to make a card for it using another die I have and then......need to make a box!!!

Please feel free to leave any comments and I promise to be back soon with another new idea I've been trying.
Happy crafting
