Hi there

Time for yet another challenge, it has been a long time since I played along with a color challenge and I sure do hope you will join me and the rest of the team, be sure to head over HERE to see more details on how you can enter for a chance to win..

So I wanted to stick with yet another Christmas card, this has been a great way to add to my pile that needs to be sent out each year, but I have to say the colours are not tending to lean towards Christmas themed colours, but I have to say how this card turned out I am truly surprised at what a fun colour palette it became..

I chose images from the Happy Pawlidays, colouring in with Polychromos, using the colours of the challenge to match..

I then took some pattern paper from the Party Patterns paper pad and added a piece to a white panel, trimming thin strips of Gravel Gray card stock to sit on the outer edges of the pattern paper..

I finished the card off by adding my little images and stamping a sentiment from the Bitty Holiday Wishes onto white card stock and die cutting using the Skinny Strips, adding just below my images..

I truly had a blast with this challenge and I urge you to have a go at this challenge too, it really expands the mojo..

Have a fantastic day!

Hugs

Hello there

Gosh, I have just come to my blog to type up my post for the current sketch challenge to find all these wonderful comments left here about my little snowglobe scene, thank you so so much, you are all so sweet..

So as the title says it is sketch challenge time and we have another great sketch for you all to participate in, so be sure to get inky and stamp away and enter this weeks challenge, make sure to head over HERE to view inspiration and details on how you can enter for a chance at winning..

This sketch is super simple and I love that I could keep it super CAS..

Stamping out the reindeer from the Festive Friends, colouring him with my Polychromos and die cutting out..

I seem to be gravitating towards After Midnight ink at present and so with that in hand and my Drifts and Hills stencil, I took to a piece of white card stock and added some snowbanks in the bottom right had corner…

I added my little reindeer along with some glitter pen dots to create a snow falling scene and completed this card by stamping a sentiment from the Merry Moments, die cutting this using Skinny Strips and adding to the card panel..

I look forward to seeing what you all create this week and I sure do hope you will have some time to participate…

Have a fabulous and crafty session day!

Hi there

Here we are and at the end of sharing all the creations using the October Card Kit, I really hope you have enjoyed seeing all the amazing creations, to view even more head over to the blog for one last time..

I chose for this card to create a little snow globe scene using some older products and kit products to produce my card..

Firstly, I die cut into a white panel using the Tall Snow Globe Die, with the inner section I took the Drifts and Hills stencil and added some snow banks by adding Wild Wisteria and After Midnight Inks..

I then die cut another one and using the other inner section, I took the snow bank from the Snowy Scene Builder and die cut the base, then adding foam tape and adding it to the inked panel, trimming off the excess…

Next, it was time to die cut the pieces that went into the snow globe, taking the snowman from the Classic Snow Globe and die cutting several parts to build him and the die cutting some trees from the Snowy Scene Builder..

I added these to the snowbank and the die cut a Cement Gray panel for the Tall Snow Globe to sit on, within this I embossed a sentiment from the Snow Globe Greetings, adding this to the card front..

I completed this little scene by adding white gel pen dots to make it look as though snow was falling..

I hope you will have as much fun creating with this kit as I have..

Have a fantastic day!

Hugs

Hi there

Back here sharing my day 2 card for the October Card Kit from MFT, I hope you are liking what you have seen using the Snowglobe Greetings, it is such a fun kit to work with..

Swing past the blog to see even more great creations using the kit from the team..

I chose a more graphic feel again for this card keeping simple elements and joining them together to form this card..

I first embossed the Knitted Sweater Background stamp onto white card stock and applied a heavy coat of After Midnight ink over the top, I die cut a circle out of this background using Circle Stax 1..

I then stayed at the die cutting machine and die cut several layers of white card stock, die cutting the freebie die Believe, adding a top layer of Silver Sparkle for some shine..

Next, to die cut was the Miseltoe Kisses out of some Cement Gray card stock..

I then added all these die cut elements to a white panel and completed this card by adding some enamel dots as the berries and stamped a sentiment onto white card stock from the Bitty Holiday Wishes, die cutting this with Skinny Stips..

I will be back again tomorrow for the last day using the October Card Kit..

Have a fun crafty day!

Hugs

Hello there

So it is that time of the month where the team at MFT start to share creations using the card kit and this month as we are nearing closer is Christmas related and such a sweet card kit, make sure to pop on over to the blog to view what the team have created for the first day of viewings..

My card I went with what I call a more graphic style, placing elements on their own to create the CAS style..

I chose the Miseltoe Kisses die, running it through the die cutting machine twice, once cutting some white card stock and the other with some Vellum, to which I adhered both together and then die cutting a Electric Red bow..

Still at the die cutting station, I took the Impact Numbers, running it through the die cutting machine several times out of white card stock and with the top layer adding Silver Sparkle..

The last thing that I die cut was snowflakes from the Stylish Snowflakes out of Sno Cone card stock, adhering together..

Next, I took a white panel that I used the Scor Buddy to add some embossing around the edge of the card..

Adding a stamped sentiment in the top right hand corner from the Snow Globe Greetings set..

Then I went about adding my other elements and completed this card by adding some clear sequins..

Sorry for the washed out look of the photo, seems because there was a lot of white my camera just did not wish to respond..

I will be back again here tomorrow to share even more from the kit..

Have a wonderful rest of the day..

Hugs

Hello Again

Back to share the latest sketch challenge at MFT..we are currently sitting at number 459 and I sure hope you will play along this month, for more details on how you can enter for a chance to win and see loads of inspiration then head on over HERE..

Now I have to admit, we all make those cards when we are not completely happy and I have to say that this card is one of them, but I am sharing as well like you I have those less then creative moments..

I took 2 panels of cards stock, After Midnight and Electric red and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder, stamping the background stamp Ho, Ho, Ho..

I added these card stocks to a white base matching the sketch and then went ahead and die cut a snowflake from the Stylish Snowflakes out of white card stock and added this to the centre of the other card stocks..

Completing this sketch card by stamping a sentiment from the Bitty Holiday Wishes and die cutting out using Skinny Strips, adding across the centre of the snowflake and added a few clear sequins..

I look forward in seeing what you create this week…

Have fun!

Hugs
