Little watering can gift Box and card

I love this little gift box as you can use it for a male or female birthday. I have made a matching theme card using the teddy stamp from Elzybells. The little butterfly on the card and on the watering can are chipboard painted with an Adirondack paint Dabber (copper) then I have used some Gem stones for the body
The colouring was done with Pro Markers

Hope everyone has had a good weekend. Back to reality tomorrow. Don't know how I am going to manage getting up and dressed ect before school lol. Kids are not looking forward to going back to school either, I so remember that feeling from when I was a child lol. Well thats me for now, Hopefully be back tomorrow with some more creations for you. Good luck if you have to get up early tomorrow lol.

Christmas star book card

This is a little project I completed before Christmas. For the covers I used Grey board covered with material. I used Mod Podge to stick the material to the grey board which worked really well.All the stamps used are from Elzybells and they have been coloured with my Whisper and Marvy pens. I used Versa magic pads to create the light blue chalking around the edges of the pages and then used to the same pad to stamp the snowflakes around the edges too.
All The cardstock I used is from Paper celler and was purchased at The craft room, Newton abbot.

This is how the star book looks when it is fully opened.

If anyone has ever thought about making one of these I would recemmend you do so as it was a real fun project and the finished product is something to treasure (hence the fact that I am keeping mine!!)
All stamps, Materials ect for this card were purchased at the Craft room, 57, Queen street, Newton Abbot.
Hope you are all well

Happy New Year! and Surprise pop up card

Firstly I would like to wish everyone a very Happy new year. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. ~I had a lovely day spent with family. Luckily we escaped the snow but had a terrible time with very bad ice on the roads and as we live at the top of a very big hill a lot of the roads were closed off. Still it was nice to have to spend time at home instead of being caught up in the last minute madness before christmas!
Anyway on to the card, This is a card I have made over the christmas holiday. It is called a surprise pop up card. For some reason I can never upload my photos in the correct order so we will start off with the image of the card when it is open!
When you pull the tab at the top it reveals the message inside.
Like so

And this is how it looks before you pull the tab to open it.
The stamp is called "Row Changito row" and is by Stampendous (Q145)
Patterned paper is called "Rose colored Glasses and is by G.C.D Studios
Both available from The Craft room Newton Abbot!
I hope you all have a good day. Will be back soon! I intend to up date my blog regularly from now on as I have been so busy lately my poor little blog has been neglected!
