When I woke up this morning, our pond was slightly frozen but we were greeted with blue sky and it will remain like this for the next few days.
Today's card is all about snowflakes which is the challenge over at CASology. Instead of making it white snowflakes, I wanted a more interesting colours and decided to use the colour challenge from Dynamic Duos.
The snowflakes are die-cut in different colours of felts and the sentiment is from HA which is stamped in two different colours.
For this project, I used the set Critters in the snow. First the images are stamped and heat embossed in clear and thereafter, I coloured them with distress inks with water brush. I realised that I can handle water brush better as compared to copics. The sentiment is from HA. Kraft paper is attached onto the base cardstock.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend or had a good weekend depending which part of the world you are. As for me, I am so glad that finally, I sent out all the international and european christmas cards already. I need to finish all my local cards by this week as we are flying off next week already.
Today, I have a card to share with the colour challenge from Fab Friday Challenge. I am still loving the hippo from Avery set and the useful santa hat from Lawn Fawn. This hat simply fits onto almost all the images.
I got something new stamp from Reverse Confetti too which is the stripey set. Love it! The sentiment is from MFT. A glittered paper is added on the side of the front panel. Did some machine-stitched too.
I know that you have been seeing this gift box for the so many times already but I thought it's a best thing for a card combo gift. Please bear with me for the next couple more.....
Make It Monday at PTI is having this Whimsy Style challenge. Not too sure if this is whimsy enough but I thought I just give it a try. The banners are from 2 different pattern papers and a vellum and also added some sequins randomly.
As I was surfing thru the blogland, I stumbled across this challenge at Merry Monday Challenge. This week it's all about using chalkboard technique and it has been quite sometime ago that I last used it.
The sentiment is from PB Glad Tidings which is heat embossed in white. The background chevron is from Studio Calico.
Yesterday, we had a bad storm and hailed as well. Up to this morning, the wind is still strong and I hope it will slow down soon. I am going off to continue with my christmas cards and wishing you a lovely weekend!
It's so stormy and dark at the moment. The children are early back from school today as it's a special day over in Holland.
Today's card involved layers of ribbons and am quite surprised to find that I have several designs of red in my box! I used the negative die of the HA christmas tree and layered all the ribbons on a separate cardstock. It doesn't take me much time to complete this card. The inside sentiment is from MFT Grand Sentiment. i am also entering this card into The Ribbon Girls, Curtain Call and Ribbon Carousel
Hope your weather is better then over here! Have a crafty day!
This is the first time that I submitting a project to Newton's Nook Challenge. I am using their freebies for this project.
I printed the image on a patterned paper and paperpieced it on a burlap. I also added some cottons on the glove to give more texture to the whole. The acetate is stamped with white staz-on. This project also enters into Dynamic Duos Challenge.
I am so excited as in two weeks' time we will be flying to Malaysia! Yeah! To the hot country and away from the dark, rainy and cold country!
