CHNC challenge 453


This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 453 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'something beginning with the letter S'.

For my card I used a background from a set of cards from The Works, plus some chipboard snowflakes from Poundland, a bauble tag from Wilko and a sparkly Merry Christmas greeting from Hobbycraft (sorry, this doesn't show up too well here).

My main 'something beginning with the letter S' is, of course, snow and snowflakes ... with a sparkly sentiment too.

Just for you


This card was made up of various offcuts which included the middle piece cut from a notecard from a set, with some chipboard scalloped circles and some other chipboard pieces including the sentiment. The piece of card across the middle with the sort of chevron pattern is silver foiled, although this doesn't show up in the photo. I love the colour combo of the lilacs and blues.

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 452 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'embossing (wet or dry)'.

I used one of my newly acquired Crafter's Companion Gemini die cut and emboss folders with silver mirror card, mounting on to gold mirror and then on to the black card with the 'Away in a Manger' sentiment added from a Hunkydory set.

It wasn't easy getting a photo because of the glare or a reflection of myself in the mirror card - lol, so this is the best I could do.

21st birthday


This is a card I made for my great nephew's 21st birthday. Supplies are all from Kanban except the lettering and the numerals which were from Poundland. The backing card was bought many years ago ... a big bundle that stills keeps going - lol!. It's hard to see here, but I used three acetate wraps with sentiments, also adding the Happy Birthday.

Not enough candles


This is a card I made and sent earlier in the year for a cousin who is just six months younger than me ... I always tease about age, so I wrote inside that I was sorry there weren't enough candles - lol!

This was made with one of the Dots to Diamonds designs, colouring the candles with spectrum noir and adding the gems. The birthday greeting was stamped inked with Hero Arts ombre.

Inspired by the stripes etc from Paperbabe 99 picture inspiration::
