CHNC challenge 219: button it up


This is my card for CHNC challenge 219: button it up ... use at least one button on your Christmas design. I used the Cute as a Button 'Are we done yet' digital image (I won this from Cute as a Button, one of this week's sponsors) colouring this with chameleon pens, using a quickie glue pen and Art Institute fine glitter on the snow and chimney smoke. The torn people of red and white snowflake paper is an offcut.

The background was created running a piece of DCWV textured card with a Sheena Douglass snowflake embossing folder through my eBosser, sanding slightly and rubbing with pebeo silver gilding wax, which is more visible on the right of the photo than the left because of the angle of the camera. And, of course, I've added three felt buttons from Poundland.

A gift shaped card


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 70: anything goes with a twist ... a shaped card. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries for the challenge.

I used Deedee's digis 'gifts' from Happy Brr-day (Deedee's are the sponsors for the challenge) printing it large, mounting on to a large card blank and cutting round the upper part of the 'gift' I would have liked to have cut the bottom of the gift too, but the card couldn't have stood on the point, so I decided to colour the bottom corners with a spectrum pen instead.

Completely Christmas 53


This is my design card for Completely Christmas 53: anything goes with a twist ... suitable for a male. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in with your masculine Christmas creations.

I used Aurora Wings Christmas owl (kindly donated by the sponsor) coloured with chameleon pens, using a piece of Fantastic Foils as background, an offcut of torn snowflakes paper and a die card panel of mirror card using a Nellie Snellen die. The sentiment panel is an odd one I found in my Christmas box.
