Bee happy ... again!


Another 'Bee happy' card, this time using the sketch given for Sketch Saturday 263:


I printed the coloured hexagons and then cut them out individually, mounting on to an ivory card blank, stamping some with the little bee stamp by Jo Capper-Sandon from Stampotique. As with the previous similar card, the sentiment was generated on my letratag with yellow plastic tape.

(Note to self: it would have been easier to have printed plain hexagons on to coloured card, rather than digitally colour the hexagons and print on to white card - had to be very careful not to show any of the white at the edges.)

Difficult to get a photo that evenly showed the card blank without the shadowy bit at the top, which isn't there, of course, in real life.

Merry Christmas


Another Christmas card made with some of the left over Kanban card from the previous card, with the addition of a little topper and sentiment panel, both from different Kanban kits from long ago, with three stars from Hobby craft.

It is based on the sketch for Atlantic hearts 7 (my first visit there):

Green for Christmas


This card is based on the sketch for Merry Monday 66 on Always playing with paper:


Colours are for Dynamic duos 57 'green and black with optional plant theme:


I used a variety of Kanban card, die cutting using the Die-namics fishtails. The card looks a bit more vibrant in real life.

Baubles ... and yet more baubles!


It was Kerry's turn to set the challenge for the Christmas Card Club girls and she asked us to feature baubles. I prepared this Saturday afternoon when I wasn't feeling that great, so I went the easy route and made cards using supplies from a Hunkydory kit, along with some snippets of glitter strips that I'd been saving in case they came in handy. The sentiment panels on the first two cards are from Anna Griffin.

The glitter strip on the righthand side of this one looks crooked, but it's not actually - this is a card that opens from the bottom, so the photo was taken on the slant.


The piece of card on the lefthand side of this one was an offcut from the previous card.
