Faux stained glass hearts

Hello again. The weather here in the UK – especially for a Bank Holiday weekend – is absolutely phenomenal. Temperatures greater than 20 degrees centigrade, lovely blue skies, a little breeze – lovely. I have been hung some washing our to dry for the first time this year!

I was going out cycling again, a new hobby for me, but I think I over-did it the other day. I just kept going and going, then realised I actually had to get back when I passed the 4 mile marker………hmmm…..a tad saddle sore for the next couple of days, as I then had to cycle back to where I came from!

There are some amazing cycle trails around Chesterfield UK – and I plan on exploring a lot of them – but I think I’ll stick to the circular routes….

Anyhoo, I have a card to share for a couple of challenges, and went with the faux stained glass look again. I actually found this sooooo much easier than the first card – basically because I knew what I was doing this time.

I used the Lawn Fawn ‘Say What? Gift Tags‘ and die cut the base layer, then several more layers out of white card stock. I then die cut the little hearts and placed them inside – on some sticky tape, using my jewel picker ‘cos those hearts are TINY – then added the Glossy Accents.

After letting that dry – I know, I don’t usually ‘do’ patient – I die cut the top layer out of the shiny red Crafters Companion card stock and added that to the top.

The embossed piece is using Crafters Companion folder…after realising I don’t actually have that many heart folders, I found this one…..and adhered as you see.

The sentiment is from the Neat and Tangled ‘Jump for Joy‘ stamp set, stamped in Altenew red ink, then embossed again with clear embossing powder.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

CASology – Leap

Freshly Made Sketches – sketch

‘H’ for Hang it up, ‘I’ for Intricate

Hello everyone. It is my time to host at ABC Christmas Challenge, and it is ‘H’ for Hang It Up, and ‘I’ for Intricate. I made a different card for each, and goodness did I have fun creating these two cards. As you can see – red was the theme………and I used ‘a lot’ of Sue Wilson’s die sets, and shiny and bright Crafters Companion card and glitter card stock

Hang It Up
The two baubles are loose so they can be removed and used

There are two prizes up for grabs:

Two stamp sets and a die
Two stamp sets and a die

I hope you can join us this month, and really get your creative juices flowing with intricate dies and stamps, and lots of hanging Christmas baubles and decorations.

I look forward to seeing all your creations, and leaving comments – as well as having the difficult task of choosing the winners. 🙂 🙂

The Design team have come up with some amazing ideas, so I hope you will just pop along and have a gander at their creations – and hopefully join us. 🙂
