I couldn't think what to do for my cousin's birthday card this year, but finally yesterday I remembered how much he loves Jaffa Cakes. So with a bit of help from Google I came up with this:I printed off a couple of images so that I could cut out individual Jaffa Cakes from the spare one and mount them on 3D tape. I then highlighted a few of the choccie tops with Glossy Accents
The blue of the backing paper is actually a better match for the Jaffa Cakes box irl, but it's come out rather more "denim" on the photos. I made the wording with Mr Robo - I used the brush tool in PSP to draw the letters rather than use an existing font
Looking back over my pics I realised that I hadn't added the photos of the things I made for the September Bubbly Funk Kit. This was the one with the bright and beautiful Cosmo Cricket "Hello Sunshine" papers in and was such a fun one to use.
At first I found this set of papers quite challenging, but after a while they seemed to take on a life of their own. The colours and designs are really strong so I decided it was nest to let them work for me rather than the other way round.
I used the fab repeated motif on one of the papers to make this one, layering up parts of the motif and then adding some punched flowers and brads to give even more dimension.
This sweet little birdie sitting on the top of a chipboard tree was in the kit, along with tree shaped brads, various ribbons, journalling cards and some little safety pins. I painted the tree with acrylics, and used some Brilliance inks to colour the birdie. Once I'd got the pin through the card I glued it closed with superglue as I worry about adding sharp things like pins to my work!
I really loved the clean and crisp geometrics in these papers. For this next card I kept to a theme of circles and rectangles to try and highlight those shapes. I love the great big chipboard button and the big yellow flower. I used the bits that came out of the button's holes as fake brads - I coloured them black then added a topping of black Stickles.
I made a sketch to go with this card, and if anyone would like to use it to make a card or LO then I'd be really chuffed! Just don't forget to come back and let me know where I can see your creations! Here's the sketch:
I've got a couple of other things made with this kit to share, but I'll save them for tomorrow - I've gone on quite long enough already!
