It will the first halloween card for my grand son.

Gingerbread Bunting

Do you remember my Gingerbread Bunting I made back in the summer?

Well, it is now a kit😃

Linen fabric, satin gingerbread ribbon tags, grosgrain advent numbers and bias binding is all included, as well as the instructions. 
I used a sewing machine to make the bunting, but you could hand sew it if you wished.

The p
ockets are large enough for a small treat, chocolate coins or as I keep telling Tony a diamond ring or two !
Find the new kit here 

Enjoy your day

Christmas Ornament

Sarah here today with a festive ornament using the Unicorn Christmas ribbon.

To create this mixed media star bauble I started out with some gesso to prep the ornament blank. I added layers of texture and crackle paste to add some interest and layers of cheesecloth and tulle.

Then I added mini pine cones, moulded clay shapes and a snowflake again coated in gesso. With some paints and spray in blues and greens I added a touch of colour diluted down with water from a spray bottle.

Once dry I added flowers in pinks and blue to match my ribbon and then coated the ornament in white paint, snowflake and unicorn pastes by Prima to add a frosty effect.

Finally I added my ribbon followed by some pink seam binding in a bow at the top.
You can check out the process in detail in the video linked here.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Crafty Day :)

2 more Unicorn Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone
Wendy L, Spanish Crafter here to show you another couple of Unicorn Cards, showcasing our new Unicorn Grosgrain ribbons available HERE
These are very similar to the two cards I showed the other day.

Both similar design using the Advent ribbon, cut and made into pockets to hold a little card or maybe a voucher or money.
All matted onto Pearlised card embossed with Hearts.

I added one of our heart button in the corner of this one tied with narrow organza ribbon.

A way of using the Advent ribbon as Birthday cards.
