HARRY POTTERS WIZARD HAT

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Two of my Great Granddaughter's loves Harry Potter so after seeing a design on Pintrest made by a Sizzex designer sorry I can't remember his name, I decided to have a go myself.

The only thing is I couldn't find it again when I looked so this is my interpretation of his hat and of course my design card.

As I said there are 2 different ones made for each child.

These are both 8"x8" in size.

As I could not find the tutorial for the hats I had to have a go from a photo of his hat.

I wet some kraft card stock with water and glycerin and attempted to mould the face on the hat.

Made them at seperate times hence the difference.

Card stock used was Tonic.

I made the paper up from a photo and my 3D decoupage CD from ages ago.

I can say they were both delighted with them.

 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

GRADUATION EXPLODING BOX

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

I do hope everyone is having a lovely weekend despite the rain that's if it's raining where ever you live.

Here in the UK we are having lots of rain this summer and cooler weather too, and that suits me as I don't like very hot weather, but I feel sorry for those who love the sunny warm days too.

 

I have a Graduation Exploding box to show you that I made.

This is a You Tube video that gives you very clear instructions, and you will find it

HERE 

The lady's name is Sam Calcott UK, and there are some wonderful tutorials on some very beautiful creations she makes.

I made this for my Granddaughter who finished her university this summer passing all her exams too.

She is hoping to become a Barrister and has had her works experience with a firm in London who were eager to employ her if she passes her exams, this was all before covid of course.




The second photo is the inside of the box.


Thank you so much for your visit and your precious time.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE......JULY 2021 .......DT CAARDS

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

Well it's the 25th of the month yet again, and time for the

Rudolf Days Challenge over at

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

The challenge runs from today till the last day of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.

There is a lovely prize for the winner too.

So here is what I made for my DT this month.

 


These are both 8"x8" in size.

On the both I used up some tags I made about 4 years ago to enter Lolls tag challenge she ran then.

Not sure if it still runs or not.

The first card is a mixed media design with lots of different layers.

The second card I stamped fir branches all over card for a background similar to the tag, and on the inside edges of the card too, and I also stamped the verses on both.

Couldn't find my lovely pearlised embossing powder to make it the same as the tag.

I added some lovely green Holographic card to the tag to match the matt and layer edge.

The Holographic Card is from 

Tonic and they sell some lovely colours in it.

The image on the tag is a Hunkydory one.

The mixed media one I can't rememeber where those images came from on the baubles.

I added Glossy Accents to each bauble.

The MDF Noel is from Anna Marie Designs.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comments you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Well I can't believe it's the 1st of the month already where has last month gone.

So as it's the 1st of July time for another challenge over at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

The theme this month is 

COOL IT DOWN.

Chosen by the lovely Tinz.

I do so hope you can join us.

I have gone with Ice Cream to cool down as you can see from my card.

 

This is a 6"x6" size card.

No photo of the inside it wouldn't photograph well.

The image is from a 5" little book of sweet treats and a Hunkydory one which cost me just the postage from C&C.

I have cut out the image of the ice cream from another page and decoupaged it, and added stickles and glossy accents to the fruit.

Computer generated sentiment.
