Run run as fast as you can...

Thought i'd experiment with my new stamp from Hero Arts. so after stamping on white card & colouring him in Brown Sugar Jenni Bowlin ink pad, i then cut him out to mount on a tag.
I decided to create my own back ground , making a checked effect with the Stick Candy Jenni Bowlin ink pad & Burnt Orange Pro Marker pen.
Finally added a sentiment, string & of course a bell! :-)

Honey Honey...yum yum

For this week's Sunday Stamper the theme is Honey Colours/ Honeycombs so my initial thought was to do make a beehive but it didn't work the way i wanted it to...
So i then decided to make a Jar of Honey...the type you'd buy at village feté. 

Everything is totally made from card or paper which i have coloured using paints & inks, hand stamped using the individual letters to make the label. I used the date of 2009 as this is when we opened Little Paper House :)
Finally as there was a shortage of bees today, i used a beautiful butterfly instead! 

However here's 1 of my busy bees card...that i hand drew then scanned into the computer. We hope you like this too :) 
This can be purchased in our shop & online.

Abit of metal magic...

This was a bit of a challenge for me this my 1st love of choice is paper rather than using different harder materials such as metal. But after thinking for awhile i came up with this idea!...of creating a rustic door which could appear in any secret garden. i've used metal for the window panel & the hanging keys.
I love these challenges as it gets you used to trying to work with something different that pushes the craft comfort barrier.

PS. Just a quick thank you to all that commented on last weeks snowflakes...we love having them & would love you to become a member or our blog!

Bring on the cake...

This is my entry for Hels Sheridan Sunday stamper weekly challenge. For this week you need to use a mask or a template technique. So I decided to use my teacup template and for the pattern I simply hole punched a scrap piece of card and applied ink on it. Hope you like my little creation. In the photos above you can see most of the items I used. Why not have a go yourself and join the challenge.

This is the last day to leave a comment to win my handmade note-lets.

Happy crafting!
