A notecard set.

Good evening everyone,
This is a very late post due to a very naughty little monster named Poppy! she is all tantrums at the moment so i can only get stuff done when she is in bed.
Ok! Now she is asleep i can share with you my creation.

I decided to make a box set for note cards,tags etc.
I used a bunch of Fynmark nostalgia papers and made a box for my note cards to go in.
I decorated with a Fiskars border punch called lacy doubles, and then got colouring with my copics to make the 6 cards to go with the set.
I also made a little note book with a cute typewriter stamp coloured with copics also.

All 6 cards are the same in the set.
For the some odd girl stamped image i used the following colours...
E00,02,11,29,33,35,37,47,49 and 57
I also used 0 colourless blender solution with fabric to make the denim effect of her pants.

For the typewriter i used, C0,3,5,7 and red glitter.

As you can see in the note set, there is a note book, a section for your stamps, a pen,tags, mini cards and the 6 note cards also.

I hope you have enjoyed this little collection, If you are interested in the instructions to make this set feel free to email me at osirisandloki(at)gmail(dot)com.

All the copics i used can be purchased at the Mad for Markers store along with many some odd girl stamps!

My first card published in an american magazine!

Today was real exciting! i got a copy of Stamp it! cards vol.9 in the post today and here was my card on page 111!
 I knew my card had gotten in because i had had the cheque from papercrafts but to get a copy in the post was so exciting as i cannot get it here in Australia unless i order it from the USA.

Here is the magazine.

And here is my card on page 111.

My card is on the right called My Beating Heart.

So now i have cards published in UK, America and Australia!

Fiskars and Fynmark ...what a great combo part 2

Hello there everyone! Today i have to share with you all part 2 of my Fiskars /Fynmark combo projects.
First up is a calendar. Thanks to my Dad; he made the wood part for me to use, i had a great base to work from.

I think the main Fiskars tool i used for this project was my Trimmer! It was great to be able to measure up each square to place on the number block and know they will all be exactly the same.
I also trimmed the paper for the month blocks and then used my Fiskars fingertip knife to alter some of the chipboard stickers a little to fit where they needed to go on my calendar.
Next up is a little album i made using a different range of Fynmark/Ruby Rock it papers. this collection is called Vintadge.

I made a mini album for our trip to the uk in 2009.

For the front cover i used several Fiskars tools. The circle was already in the album but i used my Fiskars shape express and circle template to cut out the picture od zoe exactly the same size as the window in the album.I used my circle Fiskars everywhere punch to make a hole in the backing paper to put on the inside cover of the album also.

The ribbon as cut using my Fiskars scissors.....that were labeled "fabric"! long story check out this post

With all the other pages i used m Fiskars trimmer, Fingertip knife and Scissors. THis was quite a simple album but as the size was only 4 x 4 inches you could not really embellish a whole lot.
All the Fiskars and Fynmark products i used for all my projects can be found in spotlight!
Well i hope you enjoyed seeing  my little projects and hopefully you have had some inspiration to create some of your own.

Fiskars and Fynmark ...what a great combo! part 1

good Morning everyone! i have been a little slack again lately :(  i have a bunch of Fiskars projects i have created to share with you but just have not had the time to pop them up here on the blog! my lovely little 1 year old has hit terrible 2's early! and OMG she has become a little monster! 
So while i have her quiet watching teletubbies, i am going to "try"to share with you!
Fiskars was kind enough to send me a bunch of Fynmark's Ruby Rock it range of patterned papers card and embellishment a little while ago. I have been a busy little bee over the past few weeks.....when all are in bed;) ... and have made a few little projects.

First up is a little card.

You may have seen the image i have coloured before. When i colour an image i really like i tend to colour a couple at the same time so when i need a quick image, hey presto! i have one ready and waiting.I use copic markers for my colouring.
I took this image and using my Fiskars fingertip knife....which IS THE BEST IDEA EVER!.....and cut out the image.
Then i took my blank card and glued some of the paper on the card inside and out. With my Fiskars interchangeable border punch and cartridge - up in the clouds i punched an edge on my card. the punch had no issues going through the card and 2 layers of paper.
( if it had have been a more detailed punch i would have punched each individually and then lined up to glue.)
I then took some of the embellishments and added to the card along with a game spinner and some twine.
In the  inside i cut a strip of Paper with my Fiskars Trimmer and then folded it back and forth like to create a little embellishment for the inside of the card. Using my Fiskars corner rounder i then trimmer another piece of patterned paper to add to the card for a message to be written.
The card turned out quite cute and the range of Fynmark papers and embellishment looked great together. All the products apart from the stamped image can be purchased from Spotlight.

Ok next up is a layout.

With this layout i used the Bella! cardstock that is embossed. I then used my Fiskars Trimmer to make a few paper strips to place across the page. one i folded and the other i trimmed the edges for a different effect.
I then took my Fiskars Shape express and the Fiskars oval template and cut a bunch of Ovals out of the lined patterned paper. i then over lapped them to get a scalloped effect on the bottom of my page.
I then coloured the bella! white lace trim with a copic marker to match my papers.
Lastly i used a couple of dies to make the felt flowers and a die cutting machine to make the title.
I added some buttons and a few gems and my page was finished.
All the papers and Fiskars tools again are available at your local spotlight store.
I hope you have enjoyed a few of my projects.

I have 2 more to share in a few more days.

creative hairclips using copic markers.

hello everyone and have i got something different to use your copics with today!

Over an the mad for markers monthly challenges blog there is a challenge to create something different not a card or layout.

So this took a lot of thinking about so i chose to decorate hair clips using copic markers.

Firstly let me show you the match book i made to gift wrap them in.
I used some kraft card, a some odd girl stamp and of course i coloured with copics. (C5,7,R24,Y8)

Here are the hair clips i made. I will pop instruction below the pics on how i made them.

To get this look i used 2 hair clip bases and 2 cabochons. I took the back of each cabochon and dotted on different coloured copic markers
Here are the colours i used.

Once all the colours had bled into each other and dried i put a thin layer of glossy accents over the colour. i was going to use clear nail polish but as the copics are alcohol based the nail polish bleeds into the copics and ruins the pattern. so as glossy accents are water based this works great.
Once the layer of glossy accents has dried i then took some silver holographic nail polish and layered this on top. then a coat of plain silver nail polish. this gives that great stain glass window effect.
