Zini Giveaway

Zini Giveaway

Hello everyone!

Lovely project today to make you smile

Here's Helen Chilton who has designed 

a card using those quirky new critters 

from PaperArtsy

I had a lot of fun with these stamps -
 the more you look at them, 
the more you see all these little details 
that you can stamp on their own
 to add to your card.

Make up a white card with a hinged step like this - 
mine's 15x15cm (6"x6"):

Mask off the lower edge like a slope 
and rub Mermaid Lagoon, 
Blueprint Sketch and Evergreen Bough 
over the large square panel:

Stencil in a large section of the Snowflake:

Stencil the snowy dots over the top in white paint

Stamp the two bobbles from the "Angel" along 
the hill line in black

Stamp trees onto the front flap using
one of the hats

Stamp out all the images onto white card
including extra hats and bobbles

Colour with Distress ink pads and pens

Assemble as shown and
add the trees and tiny greeting
 from JOFY 06

Add snowballs (the bobbles)

The angel goes in the sky with her
halo crooked - of course!

And last but not least, the 
grumpy elf, who has been hit
by a snowball

There you are!  Told you I had fun!

Stamps used:

Other materials:
Distress inkpads and markers: Mermaid Lagoon, Citrus Twist, Evergreen Bough, Candy Apple Red, Blueprint Sketch, Pumice Stone, Wilted Violet, Fossilized Amber
Kaisercraft 12x12 templates: Christmas Quarters, Festive Quarters

Thank you Helen

This will be a joy to make - I shall be smiling
all the way through it.  Might even play some 
Christmas music at the same time.........

 Just need to add to my Zini collection, I have one so another seven to go!

  1. They are all cute but my favourite (for now) is O4. I would call him Henry because he just looks like such a Happy Henry ready to jump into your arms and give you a hug.

  2. PS 07 is definitely Zelda and 01 Zoe.

  3. What fun, just love those wee cuties.... Think my favourite is Zini 08. Think I will call "her" Princess Charlie xx

  4. Oh...what fun!! No3 I think should be called Pixie Pudding, looks like he has eaten too much and it made this pixie fat!!

  5. Gorgeous quirky card! I love Zini 6 - such a quirky Angel or fairy and I would call her Florabelle! I don't know why, she just looks like a Florabelle to me, she is fabulous! Thank you for the chance to win, so kind! xxx

  6. I so love these stamps, it's difficult to choose a favourite as they are all so cute. Happy crafting, Angela x

  7. I love the angel, she looks like she is part pig with her snout, so I would like to call her 'Cookie', I'm sure she wouldn't say no to munching on one! Rachel x

  8. Love these quirky little zini's. Great card. Number 8 looks like a Bob. Hugz

  9. Zini # 1 I'd call her Annabella (she looks like the shape A a little) and # 4 I'd call him Bouncing Bubba for sure :)
    thanks for the chance to win would be freakin Amazing !!

  10. How cool, these new characters are great.... all of them, so it is difficult to pick only one. Just in this moment I live the flying pig best, looks to me like Zizelle.

  11. Fabulous, just love it. I have been trying to NOT buy those stamps, but now !!!!!!!

  12. I'm loving 06 because she reminds me of a flying pig and they're my favorite. I think I would call her Zephyr. Cute project!

  13. wow what a fablous make - I love - and have already bought number 4 - he's such a happy chappy - I call him Horace!! Hugs rachel x

  14. Think I'm going for #04 - looks like they don't have a care in the world so I'll call them ArtyParty.
