YKYACW you've emptied a can of hair spray even though you've probably didn't even use it five times to style your own hair. It's so great to use when using glitter or setting drawings.

The tiny knitting needles are made from toothpicks and beads. Smiley

@youpidou: wow, I wish I could paint like that! I can't though. I bought 2 booklets with 10 card designs each (for only 0.39 per booklet!) and simply cut out those designs.
@kbrison: I'll look into those swaps! Cheesy And yes, the knitting needles are made from toothpicks, with beads.

 Hello my fellow countryman! Thanks for the compliments. Smiley There aren't a lot of us on craftster, but there is some Flemish and Dutch representation on the forums!

I love all these Christmas decorations. I absolutely adore the handprint ornaments! How very, very cute.

@Jillybeans: Those cat in the hat shoes are incredible. That is one lucky, lucky boy!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project Name: 3D Christmas cards
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436996.0
Brief Description:
During the holiday season, it's custom to send friends and loved ones themed greeting cards. My granny used to make these for the extended family every year. Now that she's gone, I felt drawn to the same craft, to keep the tradition going. These cards will be mailed to friends/relatives soon.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Glittery 3D Christmas cards
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436996.0
Brief Description:
I've been making 3D cards for a while now, but they still weren't quite like the ones my nan used to make: she'd make liberal use of coloured sands and glitter. I decided these designs could really do with some glitter, or the card would be too plain. As you can see, in the first card I didn't quite have the technique down yet, but I've gotten a lot better, even graduating to more complicated shapes like ovals.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: December Detention
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Knitting Ornaments
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437093.0
Brief Description:
I've had yarn ball ornaments on my crafting list for over two years now. I bought a very cheap set of ugly Christmas balls just before moving back from the Netherlands to Belgium for this exact project, but they've been stuck in storage all that time. No more! Another part of my personality going in our tree. (We have a VERY ecclectic Christmas tree, with pixies and teapots and stray earrings and a pocket watch and tiny perfume bottles and miniature clogs and ... and I love it!)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bean: Mint
House: Slytherin
Project Name: More 3D Christmas cards
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436996.0
Brief Description:
For this bean, I used some mintgreen cardstock as the base for another couple of 3D Christmas cards.
Project Picture:



Depending on the intricacies of the design, these cards take me anything from 20 minutes to a couple of hours apiece to make. It would have been to far of a stretch to divide them over more prompts though, so that's why I have a whopping 5 cards for the Flying prompt.

@Smeddley, don't feel bad about the creepy statue. You put in a great effort to transform something ugly into something great and that is a very hard feat to accomplish. Good on you for trying! Wink
@Bushbaby, I like that cuddly reindeer. So fuzzy!
@AIMR: Not sure what you mean with yarn system, but I really like the look of that cowl Smiley

I passed 50 projects! I'm at 58 right now Cheesy That means that in 2014, I achieved my goodreads challenge and my crafting challenge! :O Project 44 was a cowl I knit with 15mm needles and yarn (both received as a birthday gift). No nice pictures yet though! Today I made four knitting ornaments, two for my own tree, one for my mum and one for a friend.


I also made a set of 3D christmas cards.

Thanks for the compliments people! Smiley I made some more, so I went and added them into the first post.

Inspired by this craftster tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211860.0 though I used toothpicks and beads instead of cocktail umbrella's. 2 for my own tree, one for my mum and one for a friend.



9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 3D Christmas cards on: December 03, 2014 02:56:12 AM
I recently ran across some booklets of 3D Christmas cards, and was instantly reminded of my late grandmother: she used to make all her own Christmas & birthday cards this way! I even got some of her supplies after she passed away (mainly coloured sands and cardstock)

I couldn't resist and picket up two booklets (good for 20 cards in total) and have already made two cards.  


I will need a better way to use the glittery sand, because this one came out a bit blotchy. Of well, can't be perfect from the start right?


I felt really connected with my grandma (especially since I was wearing one of her old dressing gowns when I made them) so it really means a lot to me.

Edit: More cards made!

Question:
Quote
Multi-skilled
Post one (or more) appropriate projects on craftster completed projects board for any 5 of the craft-type heading found under the community tab

Is this a new one, or did it already exist? Like, can I start counting from the summer semester, or do I start counting from the winter semester? Because I have definitely posted in 5 different boards already since June 1st. (Though I would need to verify if I entered all those projects in the Craftalong too. Not sure if all of them matched a prompt.)
