i made this card for sandra’s rudolph day challenge to make christmas cards on the 25th of every month; it’s a great way to build up my stash. i stamped the snowflakes in white, pierced some of the dots and two rows, added black mats and sponged the edge of the card with white. thanks for popping by.
this is part of a set of cards i made for my daughter; she loves green. i tied the bow on the card, which took longer than the entire card because i have three fused fingers on my left hand. i should’ve known better and next time i’ll just use my bow-easy. (my emphasis). the card is 4.25″ square and the tiny ornaments are peel offs. i’m submitting this to the less is more challenge to use a ribbon or button. thanks for popping by.
i joined sandra’s challenge to make christmas cards on rudolph day – the 25th of each month; it’s a great way to build up the card stash for the holidays. i watercoloured santa teddy with distress inks, although i don’t think the photo reflects the real colour and red is just one of those tricky colours to edit. i’m also entering this into The Stamp Man challenge to use anything by tim and Winter Wonderland challenge to use holly. thanks for popping by.
it feels strange to say in june, but i’m behind in my monthly splitcoaststampers’ christmas card challenge, so i thought sandra’s post about rudolph day was a great way to remind me to get some cards done by the 25th of every month. (this is for february; lol). also, after seeing this gorgeous card made with splitcoaststampers‘ sketch challenge, i had to use it. thanks for popping by.
this is the second card i made yesterday; this one is for the Queen For The Day #40 challenge at splitcoaststampers. i found this adorable mouse and ornament card and had to case it with a hedgie. i watercoloured the image, sponged the edges and popped it on foam dots onto snowflake embossed paper; added a bow and it’s done. thanks for popping by.
penny black saturday challenge 127 is to make a monochromatic christmas card, so this was the only stamp that came to mind. i stamped the trees and snow in white on navy, added snow and stickles. the sentiment was heat embossed and the ribbon was tied on with a snowflake button glued on top. thanks for popping by. i’m also submitting this for the following challenges:
this week’s penny black saturday challenge is a sketch by team member Pauline; i was surprised how quickly it came together, although i think this is the first red white and blue christmas card i’ve ever made. it’s growing on me. the image is watercoloured and die cut with circle nesties. i added flower soft to his hat and stickles for snow. thanks for popping by.
the theme of lili of the valley’s Challenge 66 is Untraditional Christmas, so i was glad that i could participate as i’ve missed a few. i’m particularly fond of this teddy stamp; i wish there were more. (hint, hint). until i order some of the oh so cute Christmas stamps, this is the perfect image for a Christmas card for a friend in New Zealand. i watercoloured the image, added fibres, dew drops and a peeloff sentiment. i know some stampers refuse to use peeloffs, but it takes me just as much effort to align a sticker as it does to stamp with one hand. lol. Thanks for popping by.
this was another of the final projects i completed for the dare to get dirty challenges at splitcoaststampers. i found this magnetic 3 inch wooden monogram at michaels and covered it with the label from the Mistletoe Memory Box paper package. thanks for popping by.
this week’s stamptacular sunday challenge is out of this world! and i’m not waiting until the last minute to submit a card. this is also the last of my cards/projects for the dare to get dirty challenges at splitcoast, which means i completed all 33 challenges. whew! the image is watercoloured with distress inks. thanks for popping by.
