Dad's Birthday

Dad's Birthday


Hi everyone, I'm finally updating my blog after my very long absence, I haven't been very well at all but I'm really pleased to say that I'm starting to feel a lot better. I've also joined Slimming World, I have already lost 7lb but have such a long way to go, but I'm in no real hurry I would just like to lose some weight and get fitter, and who know's this time next year I may even have dropped a few dress sizes.

Anyway I've spent the last couple of days trying to catch up on my card making and this is a card that I made for my Dad's Birthday.... I hope he like's it. My Dad loves steam engines and used to be a fireman on the steam trains when I was a little girl, and those of you that know me on facebook will probably have seen some of the engines that my Dad has built from scratch, right down to turning the tiny nuts and bolts on his lathe.



Card Recipe

BoBunny papers, black card, black ribbon, pearlised copper card, silver miri, whimsy corner die,
whimsy ticket die, Tim Holtz distress ink & pearls
The Image is a digi freebie




This is the stirling engine my Dad made


And this is a marine engine he made

My Dad has the patience of a saint, these little miniature engines take months for him to build.

Altered Art Birdhouse

My Altered Art Birdhouse


Hello everyone, today's post is a little altered art birdhouse that I've made, this is only the second time I've had a go at altered art, the first time being the Tando Clock that I made a few weeks ago now and I have loved making them so I will definitely be having a go at some more.


To make this little birdhouse I've used the following


Bare wooden little birdhouse from the poundshop, I then painted it all over with primer, 
next step I covered it with First Edition Design Papers and then I used a Martha Stewart
Doily Edge Punch to make strips to cover the roof and eves


I then primed some wooden laser-cut flourishes and added them and lots of 
pretty Mulberry blooms from WOC


And last but not least I added some ivory pearl trim around the base, some glittered 
butterflies and a cute little silver birdhouse on a silver chain. 


Oops forgot to mention I also added stickles to the blooms and also liquid pearls
were added to the butterflies.

I hope that you like it

Butterfly Punch, Stardust Sickles, Glossy Accents, Tim Holtz "Pumice" Distress Ink, Black Rectangular Checker-board Gems and Pearl and Crystal Sparkly Gem 



To colour this gorgeous digi stamp I've used my Spectrum Noir 
FS2, FS3, TN2, TN3, PP2, CT1, CT4, BG5, BG8, BG10, True Black
 I've added Glossy Accents to the bindings around April's arm, her eyes and lips too.
I've also used Tim Holtz "Pumice" Distress Ink around the image and added Stardust
Stickles to her eyelid



To make the flower I cut 4 lengths of ribbon folded to meet in the centre and I then added a Pearl and Crystal Gem embellishment.
