Fizzy Moon in grey - The Stamp Basket DT

It's Thursday so that means it's my day for showing a card on The Stamp Basket blog, but before I get onto my card I need to say a HUGE thank you for all the lovely messages you've been leaving me about yesterday's post... honestly, crafters are such wonderful people and I love my bloggy friends :o)




No, I know... it's not my best card, and they're not the best photos either - they look a bit washed out.

I decided to colour Fizzy Moon in grey, just to see what he looked like - I think he looks quite cute, what do you think?  He's coloured with flexmarkers and promarkers, with glamour dust for a bit of sparkle.  The papers are Pink Petticoat printed on linen card, with grey coredinations card that I've sanded a bit.  I used a Little Claire tag die to cut Fizzy Moon out and then I made a mat for it by drawing around the tag and cutting it out.

I dyed some white seam binding with distress ink and then sprayed it with water, scrunched it up and dried it with my heat gun for a wrinkled up look.  I made a (not very good and not big enough!) bow and then sprayed the ribbon again, wound it loosely around a chunky paintbrush handle and dried with the heat gun again, so that it curled.  I don't think I've arranged it quite right so I'm not overly happy with  it, but I do like the curly effect so I might try this again and hopefully improve it!  Added a polka dot button, a tiny gem on one of the presents and a LOTV sentiment cut out with a MFT tab die.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Don't forget I have a mini candy that's just running until Sunday, if you'd like to win a sweet gorjuss girl and whatever else I decide to put in with her :o)

  33. Hi Lisa,
    missed your post yesterday and have just read it along with all the lovely and supportive comments. I can only agree with what everyone has already said and tell you that I've been there too. I've found talking about stuff really helps and that's why I tend to 'blab' on my blog, lol!

    Sending you massive hugs and hope you're feeling better soon.

    Your cards today and yesterday are gorgeous and perfect as always.

  35. Beautiful card Lisa. Love the colour combo. Fizzy Moon looks great in grey.

    Just read yesterday's post too. Well done on going to the dentist, when you get your appointment it'll probably not be as bad as you think. Sorry to hear you're feeling low too. Hope you perk up soon. Must be difficult to feel like this when you're always so busy between looking after your hubby and the boys and crafting done.

    Take care,

    Kat xx
