Hello Friend….

A new challenge has started at The Alphabet Challenge. Having reached the letter ‘Q’, Melanie has chosen the theme of ‘Quilt‘. Here is my card:

I used Concord & 9th dies to create this very colourful card. A lot of die cutting and then gluing the triangles together – then deciding which colours to put where, in which pattern – goodness knows how quilt makers manage.

I used some dotty patterned paper for the triangles, adhered to the base panel, a black layer, then stuck onto a white card base.

The bigger orange sentiment has a slightly off-set black layer – and the shadow layer to make it stand out a little more – the smaller sentiment in black.

Just one itty bitty black gem for the tittle on the letter ‘i’ of friend – really because lost the die cut one and didn’t want to risk a black Nuvo drop…..

The Design Team has come up with some original shapes and colours – I hope you can come and join us. xx

Merry Poinsettia Christmas

The Holly and Ivy Challenge has started a new ‘anything goes Christmas’ challenge. Here is my card:

I first adhered some patterned paper onto a 5 x 7 card base.

The wreath, poinsettia dies, branch dies are from last years Concord & 9th ‘Holly Jolly’ virtual event, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I used Concord & 9th card stock for the poinsettia leaves and the additional branches – as well as the shadow layer behind the sentiment.

The words are die cut out of glitter card stock – layered a couple of times with white card stock.

Some gold glitter drops applied to the centre of the poinsettia, the leaves curled slightly for dimension.

I hope you can come and join us with your festive creations.
