Shiny Merry Christmas

Hello there. A little break from posting for me, but I’m back with a new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is always ‘anything goes Christmas’. Here is my card:

I matted and layered some Lawn Fawn card stock – the foiled snowflakes – onto silver mirror card and teal card, then added a the die cut sentiment from Hero Arts.

I think the foil is enough shine and bling so I didn’t add any other jewels.

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

Cardz 4 Galz – Lace and Pearls

Hello once again. I seem to be having a problem posting my Design Team cards in a timely fashion – one must try harder….

Cardz 4 Galz has started a new challenge, and this time we want to see your creations with ‘Lace and Pearls’. Here is my card:

On a white card base, I adhered some Lawn Fawn patterned paper – some subtle water-colour splashes in the background.

I used Altenew ‘Doodled Lace’ cover plate for my take on ‘lace’, and a piece of ink smooshed water colour card to create the colourful background panel. I added some pearls to the centre of some of the flowers.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn – die cut and layered several times. I decided to do this in a bold black colour as a contrast to the colourful background.

I hope you can come and join with your creations following our theme. xx

Comfy Christmas

Hello there. A new challenge has started at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge, and we have a new Design team member, another Shona – so she has been christened ‘Shona E’.

As always, the theme is anything goes Christmas. Here is my card:

Both of these images is from a Simon Says Stamp set. I first stamped the comfy chair, masked one side of it, and then stamped the bag of presents – so it was kinda hidden behind the chair.

I coloured the images with Copics, and added some white gel pen for some interest. For some reason I couldn’t stop using the white lines – so there may be more than there should be – but I was having fun!

I love that these three critters are laying together in perfect harmony, and it just makes me smile…..

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

This panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle, then placed on some red shiny Lawn Fawn card, and then adhered to a top folding card base.

I hope you can come and join us this time round – I look forward to seeing what you create. xx
