CCAYR card 3


This is my third design card for Christmas cards all year round July challenge: dots & stripes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

Very similar to the first card, made with an offcut of paper, and some more Kanban trees - the red baubles and stars are actually foiled, but it doesn't show shiny in the photo.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper July challenge


I made two cards for my Patterned Paper July challenge (if you haven't discovered this yet, please click on the link ... and you will also see the lovely creations of my new DT).

I used Kaisercraft confetti papers using two pieces to cut out the swirls and birds (interchanging the pieces) and others for the backgrounds.

The die cuts were created with the lovely Brenda Walton Bird Scroll BigZ by Sizzix (I confess I bought this at a bargain price quite a while ago and this is the first time I've used it). The sentiments were computer generated and printed on to other pieces of the Kaisercraft paper.



These are also for:

CHNC challenge extra for July


Another month begins and that means a new CHNC challenge extra. It seems incredible that we are now into the second half of 2015 and in many ways it feels as if it's only just started - it's true that the older you get, the quicker it seems to go.

Anyway, here is my card for CHNC challenge extra for July, using AKV Christmas - girl tree by Bugaboo Stamps, sponsor of the challenge. This was coloured digitally in Microsoft paint.

Papers are random pieces of offcuts, with just the addition of a couple of poinsettias from Hobbycraft.
