The optional theme for CHNC challenge 352 is 'for a male'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

CCAYR September challenge: use leaves


This is my design card for Christmas cards all year round September challenge: use leaves. I'm in the Christmas Belles group so we are posting here today - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the Belles group. The Gingerbread gals posted at the beginning of September here - please have a look at their lovely designs and join in our challenge there.

For my card I used The Holly and the Ivy sheet music, stamping randomly around the edges using an old Tanda Stamps holly stamp and a couple of Anita's ivy stamps (love the long one - very useful for this kind of card), colouring with spectrum noir pends. This is an A5 size card.

This is one of those clean and simple cards that wasn't that simple to make ... a few tries at getting the sheet music the right size and in the centre and two or three goes at getting the right balance with the random stamping, including off the edge on to scrap paper. I was quite satisfied with the final version.

I used the lovely Lemon Shortbread summer tropics island flower girl (Lemon Shortbread are sponsoring the challenge), colouring with spectrum noir pens and cutting with a todo cross hatch die, using a larger one to cut a scrap piece of lovely shiny paper with tiny dots. The gem studded bows, flowers and sentiment from stash and the background paper was part of a magazine freebie. The card blank is A5 size opening tent style.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 350 is 'add some flowers or foliage'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I used some sparkly, shiny Papermania Christmas background paper (purchased a few years ago) - offcut left over from a 12 x 12 paper. The lovely Robyn's Fetish image, penguin Paul sleighing, was coloured with spectrum noir pens and mounted on to an upcycled piece of foiled card. The strip of embossed card beneath it was from my offcuts box. Glittered poinsettias were from Hobbycraft (need to get some more ... if they still sell them).

I used the lovely Delicious doodles gladioli image, kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors of the challenge.I lightly coloured small areas with spectrum noir pens and highlighted with glossy accents, cutting out the image with one of my 'go to' dies, X-cut rectangular parenthesis, using a larger one for the shiny lime green mat.

A sentiment from stash and gems scattered around finished off the card.

This was a commissioned card using a piece of Downton Abbey background paper (unfortunately, the light on the photo has obliterated the pattern on the right hand side ... but it was there - lol! I used offcut pieces of toning Downton Abbey papers and foiled the letterpress on to the snippet of pink shiny paper using my Todo. The flowers were from Hobby House.

This is my design card for Do-al(l) kreatives challenge 9: the beginning of autumn. Please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

I used the lovely Bugaboo Stamps fall fence image, kindly given as sponsor of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and cut out with X cut rectangular parenthesis die, brushing lightly with distress ink before releasing from the die and mounting with foam pads to give a bit of dimension. The spotty paper is from my offcuts box, with the addition of pieces of corrugated card strips - the bottom piece wasn't long enough, but the gap is hidden by the raised up sentiment oval.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 348 is 'use something old'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I used one of my oldest Christmas stamps and one that I still count as a favourite, Santa collage by Rubber Stampede. I inked with black versafine and embossed with black detail powder. The papers are some that I've had for some years. The bright washi tape is from stash.

Penny's challenge 343


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 343, where the theme is anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

For my card I used the pre-coloured Paper Creator 'a good read Maddie', kindly supplied by them as a sponsor of the challenge. The gold paper with white spots was upcycled from an envelope containing one of my birthday cards (much too lovely to put n the paper recycling box) and other pieces from my offcut boxes - the bottom piece of trim wasn't long enough to go all the way across, but that didn't matter because the image picture covered up the gap. The gold foiled sentiment ovals finished off the card.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 347 is 'make it girlie'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my girlie card I used some Hunkydory supplies from a couple of years ago with a topper and decoupaged layers mounted on to an A5 card blank with the red and gold snowflake background.


Strange angle to show the shine and decoupage:

Penny's challenge 342


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 342, where the theme is anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

For my card I used Cute as a button 'winter flurries', kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and used a quickie glue pen and some art institute glitter to add a bit of sparkle. The background paper is from a Kaisercraft twig & berry pad, the button trim across the bottom from an old Kanban kit and the sparkly poinsettias from Hobbycraft.
