June Craty Templates

The June set of Crafty Templates are just out and available for almost instant gratification HERE - the gorgeous and quirky Crafty Goodies Kit is also available on the same link, but as it's "real" papers, lace and other fab bits and bobs you have to wait a little while longer if you order that!

Here are the cards I've made this month
 This teapot template is so cute!  I've used two colours of the spotty card in the Goodies Kit, plus some plain white card to make my teapot. I've raised it from the surface of the card just enough to fit a small teabag inside.  The lid is hinged using a brad and little flower so that it moves up and down.

 I embossed the top section of the teapot with the CBug Swiss Dots folder. The edges of the "tablecloth" were fringed and curled a bit.  I'm not very confident with doodling but I took the plunge and added a bit of simple doodling around the cloth and the edges of the card.
I found a little silver teapot brad to use in the corner of the quotation piece.

As I mentioned the other day (Friday's Daring Cardmakers card) I really do not get excited about football.  The commentators have me climbing the walls and pulling my finger nails out.  It drives me nuts that it's so invasive and seems to take over the whole of life.  I can't even console myself with a Mars Bar for goodness sake -  there's football stuff plastered over the wrapper!  Ah well, there's always craft shopping to escape to....  And look, even here on my supposed-to-be-world-cup-free-zone what is it I'm going on about?
Anyway, I digress!
I don't like football, but most of the boys (both young and not so young) in our family do, so football themed cards are always quite useful.  
It's the bunting on this card that's one of the June Template Set
 I used my Craft Robo to cut all the bunting pieces, the wording and the centre circle for the " football pitch".background. The little football is a Quickutz die
The Kraft card blank and the red & white string are from the Goodies kit.

 With a bit of luck, we'll see some more sunshine  soon (June hasn't been great so far, has it?) and that will give us a great excuse to cool down with an ice cream.....or three
I think this is my favourite of all the June templates.  I've used various shades of Bazzill for the ice-creams and mounted them onto a cut-down C6 card blank covered with this wonderful ice-cream cone paper from the Goodies Kit.  To give a bit of texture to the flake I've used a few lies of Glossy Accents, and the sprinkles are tiny blobs of Liquid Pearls. 

Also among this month's templates are more tasty treats to make such as fairy cakes and candy floss, some more bunting, balloons and rosettes - all in all, there's a bit of a village fĂȘte theme going on!

That's all for now.
Thanks for visiting

Kathy that teapot is fab so much detail in that card with the hinge lid and fringed tablecloth.

You have done really well with the football card for someone that "hates" the game.

And the icecream card is just scumptious! Can I have a lick? tee hee
