Crafter's Companion #11

As usual this time on the Crafter's Companion blog challenge there is a sketch but also a few requirements.

The card must have the colours blue/silver/white and some ribbon as well as a shaker element.

Now the colours and ribbon were ok but i've never tried a shaker card before. This is my second attempt as the first wasn't quite right somehow.I've used a large 8inch square white card and covered it with matt silver paper. The star panels are from the Cute Companions Cd and have been layered with the same silver paper. Silver ribbon overlaid with white lace with a touch of silver has been placed over these.
The shaker element uses an image from the Popcorn Christmas Cd printed onto card and layered onto the same 2 backing papers. The top of the shaker is acetate held in place with a ring of blue pearlescent card. Inside are holographic silver snowflakes.
A peel-off greeting and snowflake cut with Nesties topped with a white brad complete the card, which is for my Grandson's first Christmas.

I just have to make 2 girly versions now for my Grandaughters!

Secret Advent

Over on the Bubbly Funk forum we are doing a Secret Advent calendar swap thingy again.

This is the lovely pile of goodies delivered to me last week in readiness for 1st December. Each is individually enclosed in a super little pillow envelope wrapped with silver thread and tagged with the date to be opened.
The big one is for Christmas day!

A big 'Thank You' to my secret partner, I won't find out who she is until I open a card with the final gift. That won't stop me from guessing though!

An Award

The lovely and very caring Gez sent me this award. I hope she won't mind me saying this but she has come along way in her crafting and is a very multi-talented person.

I have to share 5 facts about myself and then pass the award to 7 other deserving people so that we can find out a little about them as well.

1. I love chicken.

2. I'm addicted to facebook.

3. I have a phobia about certain reptiles and can't even bring myself to type the word 's***e' Ughh makes me go cold to think about it!

4. I never drink tea while I am out but rarely drink anything else at home.

5. I'm a very messy crafter!

Well a very random few facts about myself, lets see what my awardees come up with. It's so hard not to take hints from the person who sent it on.

Have fun ladies!

Wedding cards

Here are the Wedding cards I made but couldn't show last week.
This first one I made for Faith to give to her Daddy. I used a Popcorn Bear pyramage image from a Crafter's Companion Cd. It's layered up onto a matching backer and silver card. The sentiment is a peel-off on pearlescent paper.

The insert is printed fom the same Popcorn Bear floral cd.
This is the one we sent.

It has layers of silver card, pink pearlescent paper and cream pearlescent paper. The heart stamp is from Elusive Images and has been stamped with pink Brilliance ink and layered onto silver card cut slightly larger than the image. Tiny silver seed beads have been threaded and hung from each heart to give some movement to the card.
The sentiment is from the same stamp sheet and has again been layered onto silver card.
Tiny self adhesive crystals have been put in the corners of the sentiment plate and top cream layer.

The decoration for the envelopes are from Crafter's Cmpanion Cd's. The bottom one obviously matches Faith's card but i'm not sure where the other is from - maybe one of their Cute Companions Cd's

Can you guess the theme of the Wedding was pink and silver?
