I'm Quakers About You Blog Hop - 5th Nov 2011

Quack quackety quack quack quack!  That's duck for Hello and welcome to the I'm Quackers About You Blog Hop!

We've had some nice weather for the last week or so, but I'm just waiting for the rain to arrive!  I'm sure all the ducks in the area will be happy too when it arrives...They love the rain, don't they?!  But why don't they turn into sponges when it rains?!  Hmmm.....

Anyway!  Welcome to the hop hosted by Gill McCall at Creations By Gill M.  You should have arrived here from Linda's Blog .  If you haven't, and would like to paddle along the crafty river with us other duckies, then paddle to Gill McCall at Creations By Gill M where you can get all the details of the hop and start from the top!

So, for my first project, I made a door hanging for when you're relaxing in the bath!

To make this, I used images from Fee J Designs Quackers Galore CD Rom.  I printed the image off twice on Diamond White card which I bought from The Papeterie Mill, Bucksburn in Aberdeen.  I then cut them in a circular shape using my X Cut Cutting System.  I then cut a circle from purple card using the X Cut Cutting System and attached the duck images on either side of the purple card with pinflair glue.  I decorated both sides of the sign with varying sizes of purple adhesive gems.  I also used Crystal Stickles to decorate the bubbles on the image.  When left to dry, the stickles remained in a 3D shape and provided extra texture to the card.  I then used silver peel off alphabets and spelt out "Ssshhh!  I'm having a splash" !

To complete the card, I punched a hole at the top of the purple circle and threaded two pieces of purple ribbon through the hole.  This allows the sign to be hung from the bathroom door when you're relaxing in the bath!

This is my 2nd project which is a gift card holder.  To make this, I used my X Cut Cutting system again to cut an oval shape in purple card.  After printing a decoupage image from the Fee J Designs Quackers Galore CD Rom, I cut it out and built it up with pinflair glue.  I then attached the image to the purple card and then onto mirror board.  I decorated parts of the image with Crystal Stickles.  On the back of the card, I attached a small semi circle (cut with the Xcut set again!) with a little double sided sticky tape around the edge of it.  This allows a gift card to be placed inside.   To complete the card, I used a holographic "Happy Birthday" peel off on the back of the card.

I hope you like the creations I've made.  Something a bit different for this hop as I usually make cards!
