Thank you teacher with Saturated canary

Hello everyone! Today I am here with another one of my Candy/chocolate bar wrappers which I have made s a thank you for teachers. Although one of my kiddies finished school last week, the other 2 finish today so I had a little more time to make more teacher gifts!
Alongside the wrapper is a matching tag with homemade lemon meringue fudge!
I have used gorgeous winter Tilda papers for this. They are in stunning colours of teal, pink and red, such a pretty combination, which I have teamed up with flowers from WOC and a gorgeous butterfly from Kays Kreative Korner.
My beautiful image is Reader from Saturated Canary, she has been coloured with prisma pencils and I have used Stampin up stamps for the foliage around the image and the sentiment.
Here is the inside of the wrapper, I have made a criss cross design to be tied by ribbon with a simple inside and an area to write a message.
Here is a close up of the tag using the same image and SU stamps and a little sneaky peek of that fudge! This is such a super easy recipe to follow you can find it on my pInterest page if you fancy giving it a go!!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again! Don't forget there is still time to join in with our anything goes challenge on the Saturated canary facebook page.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again friends!

Saturated Canary Facebook challenge - Anything goes

Hi everyone, I'm a bit late today due to working but I have one of 3 makes that I am doing for teacher gifts for my 3 kiddies now we are nearing the end of term. This is for the new anything goes Facebook challenge on the saturated canary Facebook page.
I got this idea from Pinterest (of course!) it's a card/chocolate bar wrapper as I thought it would be nice to buy a special bar of chocolate & decorate it but then why not make it into a card as well?!
I have used tilda papers with kraft card stock, jute from stash, butterflies from Kay's and flowers from wild orchids.
My beautiful image is the Haiti fundraiser image that Krista made, she came either holding a map or clear like this so you could stamp your own sentiment as I did with a LOTV stamp. I have coloured her with prisma pencils and added a stempelglede flourish stamp around the edge in Victorian velvet ink.
Here you can see the inside of my card where I have made a little blank piece for the kids to write their own message to their teacher and have also made a little pocket to house the yummy special chocolate I bought (which I am so tempted to eat myself!) the card ties with the ribbon I have secured to the sides.
Thanks for coming by and checking out my make & we do hope you can join us at the Facebook challenge with your saturated canary makes!
Big hugs

An Alternative Beauty

Ooo look at me twice in one week, don't all fall off your chairs in shock now!!
I have created a card using one of the fab new images from Saturated Canary using this awesome new image called Alternative beauty..
Now, I wonder why I like her so much?! She is soooo up my street with her funky style and I'm sure there are plenty of young girls that would just love a card with a funky image like this on! This is for a friend of mine who turns 24 soon and I know she is just gonna love her!
I have used fancy pants papers here, love the funky colours. Along with black feathers from my stash for a bit of drama! Flowers are from WOC and beautiful butterflies are from Kays. I have used black acrylic paint around all my papers for a distressed look and have used pink paint on the edges of my butterflies too. My sentiment is papertrey ink.
My image has been coloured with prisma pencils, still having some printer issues so I can't get the colouring ad defined as I would like but I guess I will get there with the ink bleed thing soon enough! I have edged again in black paint and added adornits letters for personalisation.
 There are so many awesome new releases lately that you just have to check them out and I really should create with more of them!!!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog everybody, loves ya all!!!

A favourite stamp

Hello everyone, yes I'm back for another brief encounter!
Things just seem to be tough to fit into my day right now and my crafting is just not happening as much as it used to. I am still here I promise! I'm just not creating anywhere near as much as I used to, I do hope I can find time to do more soon!
I have a card today which is for both the new challenge at Divas by design (your favourite stamp -anything by Saturated canary is a favourite of mine!) and a midway challenge reminder for the Saturated Canary Facebook challenge which is to create something using this awesome "Miss Personality" stamp.
I have used lots of pretty spring/ summer colours for this card. I can't even remember where my papers were from (soory) I think they were more than likely MME. My flowers are a mixture but mostly from Wild orchids and my butterflies are prima. My sentiment is LOTV.
My uber cute image has been coloured with prisma pencils. I think she looks a bit dirty as my printer ink kept bleeding when I was trying to colour :( I ended up using a blender pencil as it bled less that the mineral I used. I'm not sure if it is the card stock or the printer but it didn't make for easy colouring! I used a SU paint splodge stamp around the image too.
Do join in with  us for both of these awesome challenges for a chance at fab prizes!
Thanks for coming by again everyone.

A Lil Ladybug birthday

Long time no see?!! I know I've been a terrible blogger and crafter, to be honest I am moving in so many other circles right now that crafting is just taking a back seat. Of course I haven't given it up but just making less right now.
I do have a little saturated canary inspiration for you today with a commissioned card I have made. This IS very similar to a card I have made before as the commission was based on that card, colours and everything.
I have used beautiful echo park papers for this with such a striking colour combination. I have also used a mixture of flowers some of which are from WOC. My butterflies are from Kays with much of the rest coming from my stash.
 My gorgeous Lil ladybug stamp is exclusive rubber and she has been coloured with prisma pencils. I have also added some stickles sparkle to her dress although you can't really see that in this picture.
I have added computer generated personalisation for the customer.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog even though I haven't been by it myself in a while!

I have used pretty papers which came free with a crafting magazine, Prima butterflies, flowers from WOC and a wooden tag. lace and some berries from Live and love crafts. My die cut leaves are also magnolia and my frame for the image is nestabilities.
My sweet Tilda has been coloured with prisma pencils and I have added some liquid pearls in blue. My image edging has been inked with tea dye distress ink and I have used a stempelglede stamp around the edges.

Anything goes at stampin for the weekend

Hello again everyone! I'm still cold ya know?! I shouldn't complain at least we don't have a tonne of snow but I feel the cold really badly (says she in her blanket and fingerless gloves!) so I'm all up for a bit of warmer weather now!
I have a new card to show you today which is a commission I made and is also perfect for the Anything goes challenge over at Stampin for the weekend today.
The request was an 18th girls birthday card, spring colours, girlie and with a frog....
Did I meet the criteria? I used fabulous Black market paper society papers.  Stunning flowers from WOC, butterflies from Kays kreative korner and love metal heart and wooden tag from LLC.
I gave the customer a few images to choose from (frog related) and she chose this one from Meljens which I have coloured with prisma pencils. I have added some pink liquid pearls and I have edged in a stempelglede flourish stamp in peeled paint distress ink.
Although this isn't normally the sort of image I go for I actually really enjoyed making this and hopefully that shows through in the work I have done.
Thanks for coming by my blog again everyone. It would be fab if you could join us for our Anything goes challenge at Stampin for the weekend with a chance to win a prize from Marker pop!

Saturated Canary Mother's day inspiration

Hello lovely folk how are we all?! It's a bit brrrr freezing here today (lots of cold fog about) and there was me thinking that spring was coming with a few recent days of sun!
I have made a little inspiration today for Saturated Canary. I wanted to make a Mother's day card with a difference. I haven't tried one of these cards with draws in before so I figured it was time to give it a go!
I found a tutorial on how to make something like this HERE. I changed the measurements a bit as I wanted mine to be bigger (this is a 6x6) I love the fact there are 2 little drawers to the front and one on either side so thats 4 drawers for little extra goodies!!
I have used Magnolia papers for all of this on kraft card stock. The little drawer handles are made from ribbon and gem brads. The card on top is an easel card and stands up on this sentiment I printed from google search which is mounted on foam pads.
My wonderful image is the darling Snail mail from saturated Canary she is just so cute! I have coloured her with prisma pencils and have edged  in a tsempelglede stamp in Victorian velvet ink. My cute wooden tag is from LLC and has been stamped with a LOTV stamp.
My fowers are a mixture of some stunners from LLC and WOC. There is a prima wooden clock in there and of course that stunning butterfly from Kays Kreative Korner (swoon!) I have also used a bit of pink tulle under the layers for added texture.
Here is ho the card lays flat against the box for ease of posting. Now all I have to do is find some delicious goodies to pop in those drawers and send it off to my mum!
Thanks for coming by my blog again and do pop by the SC blog for some more inspiration and join in with us over on our Facebook page for some challenge fun!
Big hugs
