Poinsettia and white space

Fab's big Christmas challenge 7 was to produce a card with a poinsettia and/or white space.

I've used a ready-embossed card blank and layered up four different sized glittered and foiled poinsettia - a very simple card, but I'm quite pleased with the look of it (looks better than the flash photo can show).

It's another clean and simple card for Saturday spotlight 20: 'clean it up'.

It's also for:

Crafty creations 56: 'cut it out and pop it up'
Another for Incy wincy 31: 'touchy feely' - plenty of texture here
Another for Colour create 39: 'red, black and off white'


For this card I've used the square sketch on Mojo Monday 127:

The card is also for:

ABC Christmas B is for bells + glitter - I confess that you have to look carefully for the bells, but there really as some on the Dovecraft background paper - and the ribbon and the image are very glittery, although it doesn't show up well here.
Sparkle creations 5: 'buttons'
Christmas cards all year round February challenge: 'at least 3 hearts' - this is my final card of 5 for the challenge.
Christmas stampin' all year round 41: ' recipe: 2 layers, 3 buttons, glitter' - I've only just found out that this Christmas challenge blog has started up again
Ann's creative nook 79: 'how do you use your ribbon?'
Cute card Thursday 101: 'ribbon-tastic'
C.R.A.F.T. 39: 'ribbons and sparkle'
Crazy 4 challenges 26: 'it's all about texture' - at least three different - the glittered ribbon, the glittered Santa image and the buttons
Another for Incy wincy 31: 'touchy feely'

Christmas fairy

This card is for ABC Christmas E is for elf ... or fairy folk + red and green and also for this sketch on Sparkle creations 7:
As the card has some hearts on it, it's another one for Christmas cards all year round February challenge - the idea is to make five cards for the month's theme - this is my fourth one, so just one more to do (just realised that February ends tomorrow!).

Papers were free with magazines.

Charming angels

I'm still ploughing through the Christmas challenges (yes, Iknow that it won't be long to Easter and I should be making those cards) - so this is for the sketch for challenge 3 on Sparkle creations:

It's also for ABC Christmas: 'A for angels' - with the addition of a charm

Gingerbread people

It's only February and I'm still catching up with Christmas challenges - lol!

This card is a quick one for Susie & Vikki's Christmas club challenge 2: 'gingerbread' - which means that I've now caught up with all their challenges, so I, hopefully, will get this week's 'girly Christmas' done on time!

It's also for today's challenge 20 on Saturday spotlight: 'clean it up' - a clean and simple card.

Papers are English paper company (from a couple of years ago).

Red and gold Christmas

This card is based on sketch 62 on Lord have mercy:

It's also for Sparkle creations week 9 picture inspiration: I decided to use red and gold as my theme:

As there is a strip of holly paper, I'm also linking for Susie & Vikki's 5: 'holly' - I realise that I'm late for these challenges, but still wanted to do them as a way of keeping pace with making Christmas cards throughout the year (one of my crafting resolutions). It's also for Fab's big Christmas 5: 'bling it' (sorry, Fab, didn't do the 'punch it' bit!).

This also fits Bah! humbug 5: 'holly'

And today's Stamp, scrap & doodle calls for 'sparkle and shine' - there is sparkle on the image as well as shine with the mirror card.
