Blog Candy

Well I can't believe that I missed my 4th blog birthday, well actually I can, I've been sooooo busy wrapped up in other things lately.

So here we are a week late, but not to worry.

There are the 2 goodie bags up for grabs, they consist of:
10 sheets A4 card / A huge chipboard jigsaw piece / Original music sheets / A couple of sets of fibres / Game pieces / Mini safety pins / Mini bulbs / Mini bottles / Ivory satin bows / Clipboard clips / Sticky foam pads / large gem stones / 20 x A6 white envelopes / Antique white chain x 1m 

All you need to do is make anything but a card using your favourite Ranger or Tim Holtz product and state in your post why its your favourite.  Then link it back to this post using the linky below and I'll come and visit.  You've got just short of a couple of weeks, it will close at midnight on Saturday 10th September.  I will choose the two that stand out to me the most, so it isn't a random thingy, I am actually going to choose.

Good luck - Sam

JFF - Week 30 - Black, White, Silver & One Other

It's the last week of the colour theme over on JFF this week.  I chose to add red as my colour of choice.

The background is corrugated covered in white, black and silver acrylic paint.  The wings are die cut from vellum and run through the big shot.  The frame is the scrap piece from the slide mounts of a couple of weeks ago, with an image and stamped words mounted in them.  I added a piece of red ric-rac to the bottom, three red gems and the red fibre to hang.

JFF - Week 29 - Black, White & Silver

Week three on JFF this week is to add another colour to last weeks black and white.  So this week we have the theme of black, white and silver.

I made a circle slider, well that's what I am calling it anyway!! 

To check out how to make it, watch this youtube snap

This is it opened out.

The bottom circle is made from the alterations clock face with a backing of a thich vellum run through the steampunk embossing folder.  I used the crowned circles spellbinder dies and cut all the sizes in black and white.  I stamped the PA gentlemen plate 3 image and used the circle punch to cut it out.  The middle and smaller circles are based on the crowned circles.  The middle out of the clock was run through the embossing folder and painted in silver and swooshed over with black acrylic.  I punched a circle in white card and stamped it with a PA image from travel plate 1 and also a circle in vellum which I ran through the embossing folder.  And finally for the top circle I added a stamped word image, an embossed cog which was swooshed in black acrylic and a small cog painted with silver acrylic and the smallest crowned circle in black with a spinner and brad.  Brads were added to the circles to make the movement.

The twinchies theme on this months UKStampers is 'firestorm'.  I chose to use the colours yellow, orange and red.  I used ecoline inks to create the bright striking backgrounds and stamped the images in black stazon for contrast.  

Atc Swaps

This months UKStampers ATC theme swap is 'charm and chain'.  These are mine above.

JFF - Week 28 - Black & White

So here we go with week two of the colour theme on JFF.  Just add black to white and there we have it, this weeks theme is black & white.

I decided to re-visit the slide mount box.  To find out how I consturcted it, check out the step by step on the Techniques Zone.

This is a sample of the edges.  I left them plain on this one.

I then made another one.

I edged this one with sequins.

JFF - Week 27 - White on White

It's my turn again to set this months JFF theme and I've chosen 'add a colour'.  So week one is a single colour, which is white.  So I guess you could say this weeks theme is white on white.

I painted a piece of corrugated in white gesso.  When dry added a touch of pearl to give it a hint of metallic. Die cut some of t!m's flowers in card and vellum.  I then put them through the swiss dots embossing folder.  Curled the petals on the vellum one, layered them up and added a button.

I die cut the banner from white card, added a white rub off that says paradise, which doesn't show up very well and added some dots in liquid pearls.

I added a piece of lace down the right hand side and finished off by adding three pearls.
