CHNC challenge 261


This is my card for CHNC challenge 261: anything goes as long as it's Christmas. I hope you all had a good Christmas Day and that you continue to enjoy the festivities. If you have time during the coming week I'd love to see more of your festive makes, whether they are ones that you made before Christmas and didn't have time to show, or whether perhaps you can't resist using some of your Christmas craft stuff to make something new. Either way, I look forward to seeing your entries

This is a very glittery card, using some DCWV paper as the background, an oval image that I've had for ages (had a whole load of them ... still lots left), and a piece of glittered strip.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 117


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 117: anything goes with a twist ... 'twas the night before Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely festive crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I have used a lovely vintage picture kindly supplied by the sponsors of the challenge, Dazzling Ace Designs. This was mounted on to a Kanban topper, which was mounted on to a white card blank with white glittered strips added either side - clean and simple.

CHNC challenge 260


This is my card for CHNC challenge 260 - anything goes as long as it's for Christmas - please click on the link and enter your Christmas creations there.

My card is simply done by using a design upcycled from an old Christmas card put into a Kanban frame, which was then matted on to a white card blank with a silver glittered strip added at the side.

Crafting musketeers challenge 32


This is my design card for Crafting musketeers challenge 32: use a sentiment. The link is for team B's designs - please have a look to see the lovely designs of the team and also look here to see the designs of team A and enter the challenge there.

I was disappointed because I dug out some lovely Clarity stamps to use, but couldn't find my acrylic blocks - still got craft stuff in various places that need to be sorted. After I'd changed course and made this card, I realised that I could have used a plastic lid instead of an acrylic block, but, hey ho - this card was then done, using Hunkydory supplies and some ribbon bought some time ago from Hobbycraft. The 'Brother' word is a textured rub on and the Many Happy Returns is from Kanban.

Make it sparkle


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 116: anything goes with a twist ... make it sparkle. Please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used some very sparkly DCWV Christmas paper as the background, wrapping round some sparkly silver ribbon - the piece wasn't long enough so I improvised instead of trying to make a knot. The image is AuroraWings Christmas owl with Santa Hat (AuroraWings are sponsoring the challenge). I coloured this digitally with Microsoft Paint before printing out and cutting, also adding some stickles glitter icicles glitter glue to the furry bits on the hat. The little tag is one that's been lurking in my Christmas box for months.

CHNC challenge extra mid-month December


It seems unbelievable that this is the last card I'll share this year for CHNC challenge extra mid-month December. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of some of my team and we would love you to show us your Christmas creations - please enter them here - anything goes as long as it's Christmas. At the time of writing this there are already 381 entries ... perhaps we'll be breaking a record this month!

My card is very simple (time is running out ... and still more cards to make), using Kanban supplies. The fireplace picture behind acetate is from a very old kit and this is mounted on to a topper bought recently. Some corrugated strips added and mounted on to a Christmas red blank and the card was done.

Mum's birthday card


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 110: anything goes with a twist ... add some buttons (at least one), using Anna Griffin papers. Please click on the challenge link to see the wonderful designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I made this for my mum's birthday on 29 November. The base card is 8 x 8 which gave plenty of room for the AG papers, 3D flowers and butterflies and other pieces, including the Poundland felt buttons and the Kanban greetings. I did cheat a bit because I linked this for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December challenge.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 115: anything goes with a twist ...  on the ... day of Christmas ... Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

I used one of the Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet images from their 12 days of Christmas digital set, colouring with spectrum noir pens.

I used an A5 tent style card part covered with some green glitter DCWV paper adding some Poundland flowers with pearls. The die cut music at the top was cut with a Die'sire die - Christmas carol. I'm disappointed that this die will only seem to cut through thin paper rather than thin card. I tried a piece of card quite a few times and couldn't get a good result and I had an additional metal shim in the eBosser sandwich. Nevermind, I got there by using a piece of pearlised red paper. I used a couple of pieces of silver glitter trim where the papers were joined, adding a flower to hide the fact that I'd used two snippet pieces because I didn't have a long enough piece.

Anyone seen a lost reindeer?


For their December Collage Obsession have supplied a reindeer image with the challenge:

Help!

This is my design card for Let's craft and create challenge 108: Christmas - please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of others in the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I thought a stepper Christmas card would make a change - I used some red and gold foiled card that had been wrapped around a Marks and Spencer box (far too good to put in the paper recycling box) - everything else was from a Hunkydory kit, including the offcut of music that was used on one of the steps (waste not, want not!), also the strip behind the sentiment at the bottom.

Last design card for CCAYR December challenge


This is my last design card for Christmas cards all year round December challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs from the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries there.

It's very different to the previous cards, this time using the wonderful Penny Black chill day stamp, inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pencils - I avoided using alcohol pens because I wanted to keep the card one layer and they would bleed through. All the fluffy white parts of Santa's outfit were glittered with Chloe's sparkalicious glitter applied with a Quickie glue pen. With the addition of the silver ho ho ho the CAS card was finished - sorry the ho ho ho don't look silver here (they certainly do irl).

Second card for December CCAYR


This is my second design card for Christmas cards all year round December challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs from the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries there.

I inked the lovely Inkadinkado angel stamp with versamark and heat embossed with WOW metallic medley - straight on to the black card blank, simply wrapping around a piece of silver netting, topped with silver ribbon and adding a chipboard star that had been swiped with versamark and heat embossed with the same powder.

Unfortunately, the camera just wouldn't capture the look of the embossed angel, which is a pity.

Clean and simple for CCAYR December challenge


This is my first design card for Christmas cards all year round December challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs from the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries there.

I inked the lovely Stampotique stamp by Amy Wilson with versamark and heat embossed with metallic gold rich - straight on to the black card blank. I folded over some gold netting to wrap around the card and tie into a knot.
