Hello. ABC Christmas Challenge has reached the letters above and we want to see your Christmas makes with the following themes:
P for Plump – think Father Christmas, Robin, Pudding
Q for Quality Street chocolates – using the chocolates or the colours
R for Ribbon
Here are my cards with P and Q:
P for Plump:
Q for Quality Street:
For the first card, I used the Hero Arts Alignment tool to ink blend a square in the card base. I then stamped, coloured with Copics, and die cut the balloon images from Clearly Besotted, and drew some white gel pen on for the balloon strings.
I also received some little gem sticky thingies from my Stampin Up Demonstrator that day – so I added those too…..
For the second card I’ve gone a completely different route – not so much CAS, is it?
The purple background is alcohol ink on Yupo paper. That purple panel was die cut using a Sue Wilson Big Bold Words die – saving the negative space and each individual little piece which came out – then put the sentiment, it’s outline, and all those little pieces onto a piece of black card which was backed by a double sided sticky sheet. To the part of the base outline which was left, I sprinkled some Creative Expressions black glitter, then placed the sentiment piece back onto the purple Yupo paper.
There’s a lot of colour and inspiration from the Design team – I hope you get time to check them out and join us for our challenge xx
