If you're looking for my candy it's here.
I got a chance to play and just create something for the fun of it yesterday, which was nice as I have quite a few projects on the burner that need to get finished this week or by the weekend that it was nice to take a little time out and jut be creative for the sheer joy of it.
Anyhooo....here's what I made (and sorry I didn't post it yesterday, I was really busy and then I got so carried away creating I didn't get time to take pics and post).
The papers are the new Autumn Basics by Maja Design, aren't they yummy? These are the 12 x 12 versions. I thought the hot air ballons and the clocks had a real steam punk feel to then as well as vintage, so I decided to go with the flow. The clock and gears dies are from Cheery Lyn and I used a Go Kreate die to create the card shape. I stitched all the papers with top stitch thread in Nutmeg and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.
The image is Tanker Fairy Flies, a Tiddly Inks digi by Christy Croll, I really love the Tiddly Inks stamps, they're so much fun and a joy to colour. She's coloured in Copics as per usual for me and I've just noticed (how embarassing) that I missed a small lock of her hair, so I shall need to go and touch that in lol.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the velvet ribbon (love it) and the seam binding are from The Ribbon Girl, the lace and pine cones (I think they look great here and they're sooo cute) are from Live & Love Crafts as are the Screw style Brads. I can't remember where I got the little clock charm but I think several of the shops sell them.
I cut the cogs in blue corrugated card, toned down the brightness a bit with some white acrylic paint and them added some frantage in shabby white. I think they look pretty cool attached with the screw brads.
The inside is decorated to complement and coordinate with the front. More of that yummy Maja paper.
To finish I just added some pearls and a couple of flourishes. You can see the tag pulled out here, this is cut from one of the 12 x 12 sheets which is full of tags, elements and vintage photos, great additions to your cards.
To make the seam binding look shabby I just screw it up into a small ball and then roll it between my hands in little circles so that it creases and textures.
Well that's it from me, don't forget to check out my blog candy here before you leave.
Have a great evening :) xx
