CHNC challenge 213: Joy to the world


The theme for my CHNC challenge 213 for this week is 'Joy to the world', which can be interpreted how you wish. Please click on the link for more information and to also see the gorgeous cards made by my guest designers from Sweet Pea Stamps.

For my design card I used the lovely Conie Fong's snowy - joy to the world digi image by Sweet Pea Stamps, one of the sponsors, lining this up into the O of the Joy to the world Clarity stamp that I inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail copper powder. This was then die cut with one of the Spellbinder's 'marvellous squares' (I do love that die set - so versatile), brushed with Victorian velvet distress ink before releasing from the die. Papers are from a Tattered Lace magazine.

Christmas card for a child


This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 47: anything goes with a twist ... Christmas card for a child. I created the background digitally and added the lovely Sparkle n Sprinkle Brighten the holidays digital set, fading the edges of the image to blend in with the background. A few snowflakes were then added.
