3D Beehive Card

Well here in the South West of England spring is finally here! The birds are nesting and the bumblebees are busy in the flowerpots. Perhaps that is what inspired me to make this card for the Fruit Pixie.        Its a 3D Beehive shaped card. I designed it myself in the Silhouette software which comes with the Silhouette electronic cutting machines. I have designed it so it will lay down flat to post it.  

The papers I used for my card are the “Tell it to the bees “ papers from Craft Consortium, which are back in stock!

I used the gold hexagon paper for the hive and the bees I cut out of another paper which has rows of bees on it. 

I wanted my bees to hover over the card front so I attached some craft wire to them and then wrapped it around a pencil to make a kind of spring.

All the beautiful sequins are also from Craft Consortium Tell the bees set.

Jazz it up card

This weeks blog project for the Fruit Pixie is a card for Jazz fans!!   I made this card using the Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders, this time using them on photo paper. They really swirl around on the slick surface of the paper, just make sure you tape it down on all 4 sides before you begin as it will want to warp.

Once the background was toughly dry I used the Visible image Jazz it up stamp set to stamp the main image in an archival ink.

For the mat I cut a piece of white card a little bigger than the main topper. I mixed the gold Pixie Powders into a paint by adding water and painted a strip around the edge of the card piece and left it to dry.

The card base I stamped with another Visible image stamp set, Soul music.

Once the mat was dry I layered my card up stamped and the Jazz it up stamp again on the card blank to finish it off.

I hope you liked my Jazzy card.

You can find the stamps in,the Fruit Pixie shop here-

Easter treats for Nephews

My nephews are all grown up now but when I approched the subject of being too old for sweets now the answer was a definate “No! We’re never to old for sweets!”          So here are their Easter treats, the white rabbits for the boys and pink for the girlfriends. The little baskets for my Mums. All filled with mini eggs.  
They were all cut on my beloved Silhouette Cameo and the files can be found in the Silhouette design shop.
