Something Stencilled

Hello.The day in my calendar is marked today! It is official first day of winter. Yupii! I prepared our chocolate advent calendars. Can't wait to start our Christmas countdown with delicious chocolate!:0) Pulled out our winter warm cloth from deep back of our wardrobe in the bedroom. Winter here we come!  
Now, there was a new challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week:

This week we have a pre-Christmas treat for one of you - a beautiful crafty gift you could win, thanks to our lovely sponsor,
 Bubbly Funk
Recently celebrating 10 whole years selling crafty stash on-line, Bubbly Funk has had a slight change of direction and is now specialising in selling stencils and the paraphernalia that goes alongside.  You'll find a huge range of stencils and masks in many different sizes, plus the inks, paints, sprays, mixed media goodies and the tools you need too. 
Caroline, of Bubbly Funk has put together a special prize pack which includes
3 stencils to play with, plus chipboard mini albums and keychains,
 crystal flowers, ink and ribbon

Wouldn't it be good to find that little lot arriving at your door?  All you have to do to be in with a chance of it being yours is to join in with this week's challenge - leave a link to your card and at the end of the week we'll use a Random Picker to select our winner.  We can't make it easier than that, can we?

The Challenge:
Something Stencilled
Just use a stencil in some way on your card. It's not a problem if you don't have any ready made stencils - you could use a die cut, or the die itself, a doily, or anything else that you can paint, ink or trace through.

And here is my card used Hero Arts Triangle Stencil as a background:

Have a nice first day of winter. Hugs,

Bee Lampshade

Here am I after summer holidays! I had fantastic time! My family came to visit me here to England. Such a beautiful moments which I'm going to keep in my heart and treasure them for ever. Hope that you had lovely summer too! 
I just put a cinnamon loaf to the oven so while waiting for this sweet buddy :0) I have some cute project to share with you.

Fiskars have some new lever punches release this year. When I sow their cute bee punch I immediately knew what is my next project! 

Step By Step Instructions: 

You will need some old lamp shade, Thin white paper, Fiskars Bee Lever punch, scissors, Letraset Promarkers, Tweezers, Strong double sided tape.

 Punch out bees from white paper. You will need a lot! 

Colour bees with yellow Letraset Promarker pen.

Add black details. 

Use strong double sided tape to adhere little bees randomly on the lampshade. Tweezers might be great help for your manipulation.

This is how you finish.

Assembly lampshade on the lamp stand.

And you done! The lamp is ready to decorate your home.

This project was designed for Fiskars UK. 

Have a beautiful day. Off to check my cinnamon loaf!
