CHNC challenge 233: snow in June


For my CHNC challenge 233 this week I'd like to see some snow in June.

One of the four sponsors is Sweet Pea Stamps and I used the lovely Conie Fong's snowy the penguin dancing in the snow digi, kindly supplied by them. I coloured this digitally using Microsoft Paint.

I mounted the image on to a black card blnk, cutting off the right hand piece and replacing with some snowy acetate, wrapping ribbon around to conceal the adhesive. I then used pieces of the ribbon threaded through the sentiment pice and added some ribbed snowflakes (ribbon and snowflakes from Hobbycraft).

It's always difficult to get decent photos when acetate is involved, so this is the best I could do.



I stuck a tag with ribbon and snowflakes placed so that the embellishments on the front didn't show through.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 84


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 84: anything goes with a twist ... male card. Please click on the link to see the other lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

The image is from a LOTV art pad set 5 action time with punched rounded corners and twine wound around. This was then matted on to Papermania 'for him' papers and a stitched ribbon - these were snippets as the piece wasn't long enough to go all the way down the card - and the paper strip was also an offcut. This was then mounted on to a card blank with the corners cut.
