Good morning everyone how are you all? Hope you are all keeping well & especially keeping warm. I am running so very late this morning so I'm not gonna do my usual chit-chat & just get on with it.
Ermmm I can hear you going WOOOO HOOOO
Anyway lol this week over at Sweet Stampin it is Team Fluffy's turn to give you some inspiration......
The theme this week is Try Something Different
We know a lot of you had new stuff off santy but we want you to try a new technique or a new colour combo stretch those boundaries & take a step outside of your comfort zone......believe me you will enjoy it if you step out of it......I never stay in my comfort zone too long I get worried incase I get stuck there.
Anyway a few months ago I brought some air-dry clay & 2 moulds from Crafts & Me but then unfortunately they got put in a drawer & forgot about.....yeah typical me!!
So when we I saw what my challenge was I knew it was time to let them see daylight.....I was soooo worried TBH but let me tell you I will be making more. They are so easy to make & sooooo lightweight even my hubby was amazed....the only way I could describe it when they are dry is its like very light-weight polystyrene.......I think charms have more weight in them & they are not brittle neither...FAB!!!
So here are the things I made......
This is the key I made which you can get here & then I made it look metal & antique-y like lol
This is the lock which you can also get here. Teresa at Crafts & Me has got a lot of things on order obviously after the crimbo period some stocks have ran out but please be patient new stocks are on there way....its worth the wait trust me!!! Now if you like the look of the lock & key but are not sure how to get the look or if it is you like the look of mine cus they may not be done to everyone's taste then send me an e-mail if I get a few inquiries I will do a tutorial on how to do these cus they really are fab.....I'm going shopping later I want more moulds lol. The clay I used is this one here & I barely used any for these 2 moulds so there is lots left.
Now the moulds I found easy but my mojo, I think I kinda stretched it this week after making so many cards, I think it enjoyed its crimbo choccies too much, so it did a runner for the night arrrggghhh wrong time to do that. Anyway here is a topper I made, it is 8x8 & I could possibly hang it up put it in a frame or attach to a canvas.....................or put in a bin, I'm not sure still what I think of it but my fab teamie sisters loved it bless them....so here it is....
I do however love the paper I've used its 1 of my fave pads it is GCD 'Paris Nights' oh you have to get this pad its just so beautiful & the feel of the silky paper is divine....ok I'm gonna stop drooling & give you link of where you can get this
I followed a sketch for the LO & I for the backing I actually used, well you know the rolls of crimbo paper once used up you are left with the brown card....ta daaaaa thats what I used I have kept ALL of it, yes my cupboard doesn't like me at the mo, but its quite effective actually IRL. Flowers are a mixture of Emma's & Wild Orchid. All papers were distressed with my scissors & then inked with 'Tea Dye' distress ink. Ribon, lace, buttons & hearts are all from my stash.
Well didn't I do well at keeping it short...........DOH!!! I should of just put a line thru my words at the top really.....oh well its a good job you what I'm like...
That is it from me but only for a little while come back soon for my next DT card. I hope to see all your new techniques etc over at the challenge blog I look forward to visiting you all. Please have a look at my teamies creations they really have worked their socks off for you, they are all gorgeous!!!!
