More love, hearts and red for CHNC challenge 216


As it's Valentine's day, today's CHNC challenge 216 is to use the word 'love' and/or hearts and/or the colour red on your Christmas creations. Please click on the link to see what this is all about and I hope you will. be able to join in the challenge.

My second card for CHNC challenge 216 features the lovely image 'Christmas mouse' kindly supplied by the Stamping Boutique as one of my sponsors this week. I coloured with the chameleon pens that arrived yesterday, adding glossy accents on the bauble and Art Institute fine glitter on the hat and here and there in the background. The background is a digital paper from Ooh-la-la Designs Everyday Occasions CD-rom (I changed the colour).  I've added bows, hearts and buttons.

Once again I've incorporate love, hearts and red.

Unfortunately, the photo doesn't really show the dome of glossy accents that has been put over the bauble.

CHNC challenge 216: love and/or hearts and/or red


As it's Valentine's day, today's CHNC challenge 216 is to use the word 'love' and/or hearts and/or the colour red on your Christmas creations. Please click on the link to see what this is all about and I hope you will. be able to join in the challenge.

For my first card I've included love, hearts and the colour red, featuring the lovely snowman family image that is part of Beccy Muir's snowman set (Beccy is one of this week's sponsors). I added the sentiment and mounted on to a piece of mirror card that had been embossed with one of the 8 x 8 embossing folders from the textures bundle that was delivered this week, not that the 'distressed' embossing has anything to do with Christmas, but I just wanted to use one of the textures folders. A piece of wired glittery ribbon around the card blank is pulled in with some red elastic and two glittery hearts added.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 67


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 67: anything goes with a twist ... add a bow. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of other team members and join in the challenge.

The ribbon with bow that I've used was rescued from some packaging and recycled - lovely grosgrain quality ribbon. I used the lovely Stitchy Bears Kaz Kraftz Floral swirl image, kindly supplied by Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet as sponsors of the challenge. This is a large tent opening card. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and added the epoxy butterflies where the digital ones were - they slightly overlap the edges.
