Simple scenes


This is my third design team card for CCAYR October: getting ready for Christmas. This is being sponsored by Platypus Creek Stamping and Craft, who will be giving two cling mount Christmas stamps to each of the winners - there are two challenges this time - one is to make a single card for the theme and the other is to make a set of five cards. Please click on the link and admire the beautiful crafting of the rest of the team - it would be lovely to see you joining in with your 'getting ready for Christmas' entries..

This is a quick set of five cards using Lili of the valley pictures on which children are getting ready for Christmas, taking trees home.

Sentiment circles are Craftwork cards and the snowflakes were from The Works.

This time the lovely little girls are hanging up their stockings on Christmas Eve and Santa is handing out presents to the children, while the children in the bottom right are going out to carol sing.

For this stepper card I've used snippets of Kanban card left over from a kit from last year and some miscellaneous pictures and an Anna Griffin sentiment. The glittered white flowers are Prima.

Guest slot for Tok Bobok 4: autumn


I was delighted to be invited to be a guest designer for Tok Bobok 5: autumn/fall. Please click on the link to see what the team have created and join in with the challenge.

I stamped Penny Black 'fantasy tree' with memento rich cocoa on to a piece of autumnal paper. This stamp isn't specifically one to be used for autumn, but I added spots of yellow, orange, red and brown with copics. This was then cut with a nestie and mounted on to die cut circles. This was then mounted on to a piece of bronze pearlised card that had been embossed with an Embossalicious 'tumbling leaves' folder with my eBosser which had been wiped with some deep red and golden light metallic gilding wax - unfortunately doesn't show up too well on a photo.

CHNC challenge extra for October


I can't believe that this card is for October! already! This year is going mega quickly. If you haven't started on your Christmas cards now is the time to get your skates on - and what better way than to enter my CHNC challenge extra for October where there is the chance for you to be the randomly chosen winner of £21 of digital images from Bugaboo Stamps who kindly sponsor.

My card is very simple, using printed digital snowflake paper and Noel image, both supplied by Bugaboo Stamps with a piece of lace edged ribbon across the top and a few silver (although they look gold here, they are silver) mirror punched snowflakes. The Noel image was digitally coloured in Microsoft Paint.
