Jeepers Creepers, where’d you get those peepers

It’s a new month so a new challenge at Noor! Design, and this month it’s shaped cards.  So, I used the new Owl shape and came up with this little cutie.

Check out them eyelashes lol

I then decided to use the other new shape template and made a little bag to pop some sweeties in for my little granddaughter.  These templates are such a doddle to use and I love that I can change it up from a card to a gift bag.

Mr Frosty and transforming lilies into poinsettias

Morning!  I’ve a Christmas card to share today and also a peek at how I change up the Wild Orchid Crafts lilies to look like poinsettias.  Okay, so originally this started out as a card for a man, but then the flowers crept in, then I added pearls and well, now it’s not!

A close up of the transformed lilies.

I pulled them apart, used a large ball tool on the back to shape then reattached using strong glue.  I finished off with a pearl in the middle.  The poinsettias on this card were the first I made, subsequent ones I have cut buts out of the sides (as in the picture below) to give a more realistic look.  You can also dab a bit of green ink in the centre and tips (again which I have done with subsequent flowers that I have made using the lilies)

To get the seam binding so crinkled I wet and scrunched up tight and left it overnight to dry,  This really makes it super crinkly Smile

Lilies transformed into poinsettias

I wasn’t too sure of the colours of the paper when I first started, I’m afraid of dark colours lol.  But I ♥ how this one turned out, I think the dark brown really sets the aqua off.

In the lamplight

I’m on a Christmas card roll, I just love all the bling I can add to them. 

bev-rochester-lotv-lamplight-18-8

The poinsettias started off life as lilies, LOVE how they turned out (I’ve done a mini tutorial which will go live on my blog on the 30th so check back then to see just how easy they are to do)/

The sparkly silver balls are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I’ll link them up at the end of the post.  The smaller silver pearls are from The Range – from the new Forever Friends release. ♥
