Santa Merry Christmas

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

On a white card base I added some patterned paper – still going to try and use more patterned paper in my makes – and then topped that with a white piece which had been embossed with a Simon Says Stamp 3D embossing folder.

I looked at my Christmas ephemera – another stash of craft items I want to use more of – and found this cute and layered Santa, which I added as you see.

The sentiment is also a layered ephemera piece, but it had been layered wonky – so I removed that piece of foam and glued the layers directly together, and added to the bottom of the card.

I hope you can come and join us – I look forward to seeing your creations. xx

Merry And Bright

Hello. I’m a little late posting for the new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. We have started a new challenge and – as usual – the theme is ‘anything goes Christmas’.

Here is my card:

During the holiday season I took time to sort out some patterned papers and ephemera I have, and decided to try and use them more. Here is my first attempt at that.

I took a 5×7 inch card base, cut down two patching patterned papers. The papers were 6×6 inches, so to keep the sentiment and poinsettia from one piece of paper, I added a strip of another piece to one side. Along the join, I added a strip of gold.

There are three ephemera pieces on here – the poinsettia to the top left, the little heart, and some extra little leaves to the bottom left.

I hope you can come and join us – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery.

Ephemera Christmas

Hello once again. A new challenge has started at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is always anything goes as long as it’s Christmas. Here is my card:

This card is completely outside of my comfort zone….I have been so loving the kits and packets of die-cut Christmas ephemera from Craft Box UK and 14 Craft Bar – that I bought them without knowing what the heck I was going to do with them!

I don’t use ephemera like this, I don’t know what to layer with what – but I had a good time making this card. I just dumped the three packets in front of me and played. I actually made three cards – but this one I particularly like with the deer and her baby.

The wood effect behind the deer is actually part of the packaging for one set – I liked the neutral distressed look to highlight the two deer – and then the sentiment and branches and mistletoe and pine cones – I just had fun placing them.

I hope you can come and join us for this challenge. I can’t see to see what you create. xx
