ABC Christmas Challenge – J and K

Hello there. ABC Christmas Challenge has reached the letters J and K. Wei is hosting, and this time we want to see your Christmas themed creations with ‘J for Joke and/or K for Kraft‘. I was inspired to make a card for each theme:

J for Joke
K for Kraft

For the first card I used the Tim Holtz die ‘Arthur’ and created him with a cream textured card stock with some brown ink blending around the edges. The hat is from a Simon Says Stamp die set – with some glitter applied to the white parts. The background is an ink smooshed background from my stash. The joke sentiment stamped onto some patterned paper and placed using 3D foam squares.

For the second card I created a shaker card using an ink smooshed background which I embossed using a Simon Says Stamp embossing folder, then applied Sizzix lustre wax. I placed this into a shaker creator from Tonic Studios, added glass beads and some thicker glitter and sealed it.

I die cut a Hero Arts Christmas cover panel out of Kraft, and stuck that down onto the front.

I hope you can come and join us with your Christmas creations – following one or both of our two themes. xx

‘L’ is for Leaves

Hello there. The Alphabet Challenge has reached the letter ‘L’ and Deborah has chosen the theme of ‘LEAVES’. Here is my card:

I’m doing some messy playing at the moment – I do like creating background panels and adding them to my stock – sometimes I think I enjoy this more than actually creating cards with them…….!

I used a Tim Holtz mica stain on a piece of Distress Heavy stock, and when that was dry I used a Simon Says Stamp embossing folder, then wiped some Sizzix lustre wax over the top for even more shine and interest.

The etched laurel leaves were die cut from another piece of card stock which had yet another Tim Holtz mica spray on it.

The frame is from Tum Holtz too, and so is the sentiment strip.

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

I shall be entering the following challenges:
