More signs of Christmas


This is my second card for the Cheerful stamp pad week 2 of challenge 101: signs of Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely festive crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge here.

This is another quick card using the lovely versatile Gingerloft's Christmas door image kindly supplied by Stitchy Bear Stamps, sponsors of the challenge. I changed the colour to green and simply printed. I used snippets of paper from a Tattered Lace magazine left over from a previous card.

Signs of Christmas


This is my first card for the Cheerful stamp pad week 2 of challenge 101: signs of Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely festive crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge here.

I still needed to make some last minute Christmas cards, so I've made this quick card using the lovely versatile Gingerloft's Christmas door image kindly supplied by Stitchy Bear Stamps, sponsors of the challenge. I changed the colour to green and simply printed. The shaped card and other bits and pieces have been in my Christmas box for far too long.

Oh Christmas tree ...


This is my second card for the December mid-month inspiration on CCAYR - please click to see the lovely crafting of others in the team and please join in the challenge here.

Similar to the previous card, the framed picture is one that I've had for ages from a Kanban kit - the picture is repeated on the domed acetate which makes it look a bit 3D in real life. I edged around the frame and the shaped card with a gold pen.

CCAYR mid-month


This is my first card for the December mid-month inspiration on CCAYR - please click to see the lovely crafting of others in the team and please join in the challenge here.

I randomly stamped the shaped card with inked a couple of snowflake stamps from an Inkadinkado set with versamark and heat embossed with gold detail powder. The framed picture is one that I've had for ages from a Kanban kit - the picture is repeated on the domed acetate which makes it look a bit 3D in real life.
