Three baubles



   This week the theme for the QKR Stampede challenge is Christmas cards along with anything goes.
   I matted paper printed using the Creative Crafting World CD ROM Once upon a Christmas volume 2 onto black card and wrapped a white silver edged satin ribbon round it before matting onto white card.
   I printed three of the digi image Christmas ball with ribbon, coloured them using Promarkers and a silver gel pen, fussy cut them and attached them to the card using gel glue. Using a die from Crafter's Companion advent calendar set I cut three chains from silver mirri and glued them to the card to form hanging baubles. I then added one bow to each of the baubles.
   Using a die from the Tattered Lace essentials snowglobe set I cut a greeting from black card and silver mirri, gluing the black card behind the silver to form a shadow.

Festive Snooze



   I was pleased to be asked to be a guest designer at Digi Stamps 4 Joy and this is the digi I chose to use as the theme of the challenge had a twist of holidays.
   I coloured the image called festive snooze using Promarkers, masked it, and coloured the background using Distress inks. I added a further mask and sprayed the lower part of the background using Crafter's Companion pearl diamond glitter spray. This was then matted and layered onto two shades of lavender card and white card. The sentiment was cut using a Tattered Lace contemplation peace die and trimmed. I then added polar white Flower Soft  to the lower part of the background and the falling snow.

Hiding



   This week the theme for the QKR Stampede challenge is anything goes with the twist Halloween. I thought of the animals and decided to use the digi hiding which I coloured using Promarkers and fussy cut leaving a narrow white margin around it so that it would stand out from the dark background. This was dark textured navy paper which I matted and layered onto orange mirri and white card. I added a portion of a web cut from black card using the Tattered Lace large spider web die. To this I added dots of Stickles to look like droplets of water. The image was added last.

Snow woman


   I have been asked to be a guest designer for Scrapbook Stamp Society (http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.co.uk) and this is what I created.
   It is not often that you come across snow women and this one has a rather fancy hat! The digi is from Scrapbook Stamp Society and after colouring it using Promarkers I rounded the edges using  a punch and matted it onto red card. The background paper is from the Berry Merry paper pad by Jennifer Ellory and I matted and layered it onto red followed by white card. The decoupaged die cut flowers were created using the Christmas Rose Tattered Lace die and again coloured using Promarkers.
