Just for you, deer


Another 'deer' card using up some more of the Hunkydory kit from last year (I still haven't made much of a dent in the kit despite making quite a few cards today).

The deer on the right is raised up with 3D foam. The top heart sentiment says 'just for you' and the bottom one 'merry Christmas'.


This is for:

Deer me ...


... this card was made from the left over elements from 'my deer friend' plus other pieces of Hunkydory card.

It's for Atlantic hearts sketch 8:


I used 3D foam to raise up the deer, the sentiment and the strip on the right to give some dimension to the card.

My deer friend


This card is based on Sam's sketch 161 on Sunday sketch and stamp (I've tweaked it a bit):

Once again, I've used part of my old Hunkydory kit, 'my deer friend' elements, as well as some offcuts of other Hunkydory card. There's quite a lot of silver foiling that doesn't show up on the photo - I had to avoid getting glare from it.

Frosty's friends


The elements used for this are Hunkydory Frosty's friends.

This is based on the sketch  168 for Sketchy colors:


I'm not happy with this because one of the pieces is not parallel with the others (I tried to unstick it, but the ATG gun makes too good a job of adhesion) - I added the little tree etc to try and disguise it, but I think it's done the opposite and emphasises it - think this might have to go in the bin!

Pink Christmas


Another card using part of the Hunkydory Christmas kit I bought last year (determined not to start on this year's kit till at least the bulk of last year's is used). So I've used elements from various parts of the kit for this card adding a piece of sticky ribbon from stash.

This is based on the sketch for Pile it on 24:

Snow scene


When I made the previous card I realised that I've had a Hunkydory Christmas kit since June last year and this year's has been delivered today - so it's time to get serious and use up some of last year's (I have been using some, but not enough). When I have card sales to raise money for Tearfund some people prefer this type of card rather than a stamped image one - I think they think it looks more like a 'proper' card. I would much prefer making cards with stamping etc, but I make all sorts or different tastes and tbh kits like this help to make some quick cards.

So this is 'snow-capped village' decoupage mounted on to a piece of Hunkydory card with the appropriate sentiment.

More Christmas greenery

Another card for my CHNC challenge 130, again using stamps from the Merry Kiss-mas set kindly supplied by CAS-ual Fridays.

The background paper is from the Holly Hobbie Christmas joy collection. The image and sentiment were matted on to offcuts of green mirror card, a few gems added and a little copic colouring on the holly on the image.

The card is based on the Catch the bug sketch 138:

CHNC 130: Christmas greenery


My first card for my CHNC 130 that starts this morning uses stamps from the Merry Kiss-mas set kindly supplied by CAS-ual Fridays - they are one of the three sponsors giving prizes for this challenge - please click here to see the challenge and join in with your own cards showing some Christmas greenery.

The background paper is some that came free with a magazine and the spotted piece is from my Christmas offcuts box. The image and sentiment were mounted on to offcuts of green mirror card. The flowers are from Craftime - I eased out the silver glitter centres and replaced with the brads.

I used the sketch for Christmas card challenges week 29:
