Rockin’ Holidays

Hello there. A new challenge has started at Cardz 4 Galz, and this time the theme is ‘Christmas In July’. Here is my card:

The background with gold foil stars was created using Thermoweb Duo Gel, a star stencil, and then running through my die-cutting machine with Decofoil.

I used the Lawn Fawn backdrop for the white, and then die-cut the blue foiled star panel to get the evening sky. The hills were glittered using Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter.

The trees and gnome are from Spellbinders, a little Copic shading on the tree stumps, and the trees themselves cut out of Lawn Fawn paper with little dots on – just to mimic some snow…….maybe…..and the edges of the tree layers die cut out of some white glitter card.

The gnome – now his legs move – rocking from side-to-side:

It was quite fun creating this little scene – I did have to watch a couple of videos on how to piece the gnome together – so many little pieces. I usually don’t like little fiddly die-cutting and assembling – but this was fun.

I hope you can come and join us with your creations matching our current them – I look forward to seeing what you create. xx

Hello. The ABC Christmas Challenge has reached the letters ‘N’ and ‘O’ and the themes for each letter are:

N’ for North Pole, ‘O’ for Off To One Side

Here are my cards:

‘N’ for North Pole

‘O’ for Off To The Side

The North Pole card is using a stamp set from Taylored Expressions, a little masking, and then coloured with Copics. I used some small snowflake stamps for the sky and Concord & 9th ink, adding some little spots of glitter, and then Lawn fawn Prisma Glitter.

The second card is using a stamp set from Newtons Nook, stamped, coloured with Arteza watercolour brushes, then die cut. The sky is using a stencil from MFT which was not slimline, but I made it work, and ink blending.

The snow bank is using Lawn Fawn slimline dies – and more glitter!

I was inspired to make cards for both the themes this time round – that’s what happens when you have not been able to craft for a few weeks – overflow of ideas…..

I hope you can come and join us with your Christmas/Festive makes following our two specific themes. xx
