Crafty Individuals drop front storage box

Hi all you crafters,

I have posted some pictures of the finished storage box that houses the crafty Individual stamps.

There is a you tube tutorial on my channel here if you would like to make one for your own stamps.

Decoration wise I have used two of the Crafty Individual stamps... CI 338 and CI IRS 148. The flowers from wild orchid crafts and Hobby Craft and the papers are Crafty Individuals background papers 'book 7' (shades of summer)...they are very pretty papers.

Pop up card

Hi everyone,

Here is another of the Large pop up cards using a Crafty Individual stamp and their shades of summer background paper pad.  I also used one of the crafty Individual masks on the front with some acrylic paint.  The chip board embellishments are from K & Company - amy butler chipboard pieces.

The tutorial for the construction of this pop up can be found on my you tube channel here.
I also have a tutorial for a smaller version which goes in a C5 envelope here

Leave me a comment on what you think, I love to have your feedback.

Quick pop up card with Visible Image stamps

Happy Valentines day to you all.
As we speak my partner is cooking me a M&S Meal deal...3 courses, chocs and bubbly...I think this is the only time he has ever cooked me dinner...(in 23 years!)..sorry maybe (giving him the benefit of the doubt, the second time!!!!)  The last, as I remember was sausage and beans (out of a tin) on toast, when I was really ill once!!!

Well on to the crafting....
Here is the finished pop up card, as promised on my you tube channel this video is for the larger version which will fit into a standard C5 envelope, there is also a small version  that fits a C6 standard envelope.... check out that video too.

I used the Larger version for this card using the Visible Image stamps Emma and Bradley and their script set 10 for the wedding day, also the verse Fairytale endings
I have put some material layers for the dress and a top layer of vellum with some added sequins.  I've also put some net for her veil and pearls as a necklace with gems for the tiara. The characters are coloured using promarkers.
I used the Tim Holtz baroque die on the front (cut down) and the Lin & Lene design embossing plate as a stencil with some distress inks to create the rose design (goes so well with the new rose stamps from Visible Image).  The die in the top corner is from of their corner dies.

Hope you like it and will  have a go at one of these pop ups as they are so easy to do.
