Steampunk Christmas card

As soon as I saw this Steampunk Christmas set from U-Mount that is available at The Fruit Pixie, I fell in love with this mechanical bird. A bit more red wing than robin but he is so smart in his top hat! Lets hope we get to see the red wings in the garden this year.

For what I used and how I did it pop over to the Fruit Pixie blog to see my post.

Glitter Christmas gift box

As soon as I saw this new stamp from Crafty Individuals which is available from The Fruit Pixie, I knew I wanted to make a gift box.

I made the box from white card and attached the stamped image, stamped in blue and coloured using distresss ink, to the lid. I then covered it with the wonderful Stix-2 self adhesive sparkly acetate.

I also used the very versatile new embossing folder from Couture Creations called A Magical Time with some Coredinations whitewash card which I sanded back and chopped up to cover the sides of the box. I also used some of the dotty borders from the embossing folder to frame the top image.

The stamp, ink, embossing folder and Stix -2 sparkly acetate are all available from The Fruit Pixie online shop.

Starry frame Christmas card

I love this new die frame from Crafty Individuals that is available from the Fruit Pixie, its so delicate and although great for Christmas could also be used for other things. I teamed it with some Black Market Paper  and one of the many images from the Crafty Individuals Christmas miniature pad. All available from The Fruit Pixie on-line shop.

UTEE Snowflake decorations

For my second set of tree decorations for the Fruit Pixie I made some snowflakes! I used Ultra Thick Crystals along with some of the mica flakes and Judikins Rox. I used a cookie cutter to pour the UTEE into. For more information on what I used and how I achieved it pop on over to the Fruit Pixie website.

Ultra thick Embossing clear tree decorations

I have been busy with family Christmas card making and shopping so it was nice to get back to the fun Christmas crafting.

     I have been making some tree decorations using Ultra Thick Embossing crystals for The Fruit Pixie. 

These were made by melting and pouring clear Ultra Thick into a cookie cutter positioned on top of a texture tread. Then coloured with Alcohol ink.

These look lovely in the window and will look beautiful on the tree with fairy lights behind them.

Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Easel card

I am still playing with the wonderful Graphic 35 Steampunk Spells collection for the Fruit Pixie. This time I have been playing with the stamp sets.

I have made this easel card using powder blue rather then the dark Halloween colours you usually associate with this papers with and I think it makes them look totally different. 

For full details of what I used please visit the Fruit Pixie blog and for all the stamps and papers used visit The Fruit Pixie online shop.
