Christmas cocoa tag

I don't often make tags, but I am sometimes asked for them at Christmas, so thought perhaps I ought to get some done.

For this I've used a ready coloured Meljen's designs image called 'Christmas cocoa', tearing the edges of the card and distressing first with shabby shutters and then gently with broken china distress ink. I then took a scrap piece of yellowish card and brushed the edges with the two distressed inks and then stamped a variety of snowflakes using broken china ink, from one of my favourite Christmas stamp sets - 'doodle frames holiday' by Inkadinkado.

I found a scrap of ribbon that matched up - it's a blend of yellow, green and blue - to complete the tag - I glued it gently because it would have been two thick to knot.

Another card for CHNC challenge 85

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 85: festive food or drink.

This time I've used the 'ginger bowl' digital image kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, colouring with copics.

I've used the sketch for Fetch a sketch 30:


The white, blue and black background paper is DCWV and the other papers are Echo Park falling snowflakes (double sided).

The reindeer ribbon is some that I got from a local market a while ago, the sentiments are Craftwork cards.

All corners have been rounded with an Xcut punch.

CHNC challenge 85

Saturdays seem to come round quicker and quicker, so here we are again with another new challenge on my CHNC blog - today for challenge 85 I'm asking to see festive food or drink.

For my first card I've used the Bugaboo Stamps 'cupcake candycanes' image, kindly supplied by Bugaboo, who are sponsoring my CHNC challenge 85. The image was coloured with copics.

Papers are all from the K & Co Secret Santa collection - I used offcuts (it's a 12 x 12 collection of papers, so plenty of offcuts are left over once a paper is cut into), so this is for Pixie's crafty snippets 31 and Squiggle stamps: stash attack (the papers are old and need using!).
