Easter chicks and Easter egg

Hi Everyone

Hope you have had a good week, can`t believe Easter is  nearly here already.
Hope you all have an enjoyable long weekend and I will blog again soon.

The shapes have been taken from the Fairies and Friends set
To make the baby chick:-
Glue the yellow fish shape to the orange fish shape leaving just the bottom of the orange
showing ( see picture)  
Glue the circle onto the top of the yellow fish shape.
Glue the trimmed orange star shape onto the  head for the beak.
Glue the trimmed yellow star shape onto to the back of body for feathers.(see picture)

Glue the flower to the centre of the oval (Easter Egg) and adhere to the card using 3d pads.
Make up two chicks and using 3d pads adhere a chick either side of the egg shape.

To make the medium chick:-
Glue the yellow circle onto the yellow oval, then glue the feather shape to the back of the oval to resemble feathers. (see picture) glue the heart shape onto the bottom of the oval sideways to resemble feet. Trim star shape and glue to the circle (beak). Lastly glue a black dot for the eye.

You could also use this chick with the Easter egg shapes, try cutting the egg in half and the chicken in half and glue the top of the chick inside the egg shape.

Have fun with these shapes you certainly don't need many to achieve a small card. I am always interested in what you make with the Helidot peel offs  and I would always put them on my blog if you were happy for me to do so.  

Have fun & Bee Happy

bee sticker mini book

Hi everyone

Hope you have had a lovely week, I had some friends over today and we had a really lovely day,
lots of chatting and we even made some cards.

Today our little book card is so easy to make as I have used the Bee sticker sheet and the Bee extra
sheet so no cutting of shapes just peel off and adhere to the cardstock easy as that,

Cut out for the front of your card,one piece of yellow card measuring......... 70x80mm
 and another piece ... 60x70mm , then a piece of lemon card measuring 75x65mm.
then matt and layer these three pieces of card, repeat again for the back of the card.
adhere a large daisy to the back and front(see picture)

Cut a piece of lemon card 240x60mm score at 60,120,180mm and glue  to the back of card (see picture).

For the inside  cut out two pieces of yellow card 50x50mm
then two pieces of lemon card 45x45mm matt and layer them  together and glue in place (see picture)

Adhere the bees and flowers from the sheet and add the text and black dots from the Bee extra

For the sleeve cut lemon card 170x30mm and glue together making sure the finished sleeve is big enough to take the mini card book,adhere add a little bee to the front of sleeve.

If you want to 3D any images from the sheet always adhere them to a piece of thin card first and then cut out the shape.

Hope you enjoy making this, I will be back soon with some more ideas from the sticker sheet.
You will be surprised how many cards you can make once you get going.

See you soon.

Bee happy

daisy in pot

Hi Everyone
Hope you have had a good week.Thank you for the E-mails I have received welcoming me
Today I have made a cute topper (very easy) again using shapes from Fairies and Friends,
Petite Fleur and All about Babies. If you dont have all these sets, try and use what you have.
You could use a tiny flower for the pot instead of the heart shape and a different shape for the
leaf i.e.perhaps a small petal or a different heart shape. You will be surprised what you can use
when you really study the shapes.

Cut  a piece of Willow spot paper 4.5cm x7.5cm. Then mat and layer onto dark green card 5cm x 8cm. This is the topper base.

Peel all the shapes onto coloured card and cut out.

Make the daisy flower using five white petals and a yellow circle for the middle.
Using the waste from the circle adhere each petal onto the sticky side of black waste(see instruction sheet).

To make up the flower pot trim the triangle  from the pointed end as per picture adding a black sticky line along the edge.Glue this to the topper and adhere the yellow mini heart in place.

Glue the green stalk coming out of the pot and adhere the green heart(leaf) in place.Now glue
the  finished daisy onto the stalk.

To make up the ladybug cut the red circle in half, add some small black peel off dots. Glue the
small black circle in place for the head. Finally glue the ladybug onto the side of pot adding the black waste from the antenae.

 Some people find cutting out the very small circles difficult, in this case you could use a black    
 flat backed pearl instead..

Hope you all enjoy making this little topper.

Be back soon for some more samples.
