Something Different Saturday...
Today will find me demonstrating in Blackpool, somewhere I remember which much fondness from being a kid! lol I will be in the Strikes Garden Centre in Thornton-Clevleys, for more information and the address click HERE. It would be great if you are in the vicinity if you popped in and said hi! Also I wanted to correct my thank form yesterday, Mrs Duck was my glamorous assistant and was so helpful I can't believe I didn't say thank you publicly!
Back to toady and time for something different and I thought you might like a close up of the box and card I made on Ideal World on Wednesday, if you want to see how this is made simply look on ideal world.tv for the catch up show.
I love making boxes for my cards and making card sets and this Noble die, the ornate pierced square noble, is brilliant for this as it can be used as I have here to make a box and also the cards that match.
I used the smallest square from the die set to make the cards with the centre filigree section as well as using this filigree section to make the box. I then used the cornflower die, the largest 3 sizes, to make the sugared flowers. I did this by adding a sheet of Creative Expressions double sided adhesive to a piece of the lilac foundation card before cutting the flowers. I cut all of the flowers twice, removed the backing sheet and placed 2 of each size of flower off sett to make the flowers.
I then added a liberal sprinkling of Iced snow, this gives the flowers almost a crystallised look, though I wouldn't suggest eating them! To add the the luxurious feel I added a couple of the splendid swirls cut in coconut white foundation card and some of the new coloured dazzlers, form the pinks set, as the centres of the flowers.
Hopefully you saw this made or can catch it on cat up!
