Jan: Drop down ...pop up a 3d card

I love structured cards despite the fact that I make loads of mistakes and end up with lots of scraps. The finished result is always worth it. This card was one of two that the lovely Claire Rowlands (Molly Bloom stamps) shared with us at a recent workshop. As you know I'm a poor colourer iner (my word for illustrator) so I substituted the images that needed colouring to one that was already done. Jean has these gorgeous vintage images in the shop and they are so versitile. Regular peeps will remember that  Julie used them recently to make some fab humourous  cards.

I've covered my card with a selection of those gorgeous Pion papers and adorned it with the fabulous Hobby House flowers,pins and pearls.
So many pretty things to play with in the shop so check them out. Happy shopping.

Playing with PaperClay

I was so pleased when the box of Creative Paperclay arrived for the shop. It's so light and easy to use.   
So I thought I would have a mess about and here is my grumpy looking bunny. He might be grumpy or cross looking but I like him and think I might just sit him on my desk at work.

Julie: Greeting cards with paper flowers + pins

Hello again.

My projects for this week follow on from my previous post here

do you remember the sandwich board cards I made a few weeks back using Pion papers? The ones with the cheeky quotes and matching step-by-step tutorial? Well, when I die-cut the apertures in the front, I held on to the sections that were removed and used them as a layer on some new collage-style scrappy cards:
Here's a better look at one poking out behind my card's focal image:
The lovely soft green of the Pion paper compliments the soft shades of the new mulberry paper flowers:
For my second card I used another die-cut from a Pion paper, this time in a shade of violet [the polka dot design below]: 
Which matched perfectly with some of the new decorative pins now in stock:

If you too save the leftovers from your die-cutting experiments to use again on new projects then you're welcome to join me on my blog all this week where I'm sharing recycling ideas.

Otherwise, I'll see you back here in a few weeks time with more of my 3DJean projects.

Jan: Tag you're .......IT

There's so many lovely things in the shop at the moment you'll be spoilt for choice. So I've chosen a few of my favourites to make this tag.
I've used the fabulous Pion papers to cover the tag and then I stamped a Lost Coast pencil border along one edge.
A pretty cabochon decorates the heart. There are so many to pick from I know it's hard to choose
 This butterfly is from one of the A4 tissue sheets which I mounted onto some card to strengthen it. The colours on these tissue sheets are so vibrant. The pins are from the Urban Hearts set.

There are lots of other things to tempt you in the shop so maybe you will find a few of your own favourites.

Fathers Day...

You've made the card and bought the gift...what you might need is something to put it in. These pillow boxes could be just the thing, they're just your regular pillow box but wrapped with a punched band and decorated with scraps of the lovely Pion papers..ideal for Dad stuff, not too fancy but still decorative.
I used the Hobby House Flourishes. ....cutting small pieces makes them go further.

You can find everything you need in the shop.....
