03 Wk4 Tech Stash
I had a lot of fun creating this window to put my festive Cockatoo into. This card was made using the paper pad called “Under the Gum Leaves” by Kasiercraft. I also added some Love from Lizi peel offs just to jazz things up a little.

52CCT March Colours

Hello everyone, I am here today to share with you my Colour project for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge. And we have these colours for us to play along with

02 March colour

If you looked into my craft space you would think that I would have everything to make anything but … even surprising to me I didn’t! But more on that later here is my card that I made

03 Wk2 Colour

Anyway, I had to go to the craft store to buy some Kraft paper. I didn’t have any in my stash even though I would have sworn that I did. This card came together pretty quickly thanks to the large sentiment image that was part of the paper pack that I used for this card. Looking at this card now I probably should have matted my lace paper before attaching it to the card but I will know this for next time I use this product.

Thanks for stopping on by and looking at my design team make for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge. I hope that you will come on over and look at the other design team makes and maybe even join in on the fun. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

52CCT February Stash

Hello everyone, it is the 4th week of February and over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge, it is a choice between a Technique or Stash Challenge. So for her last challenge for this month, Netta has chosen –

04 February stash

So we are going to be able to pull out our foils. I know that you have them lurking in your stash somewhere. You can use any type of foil – craft foil, go press foil, deco foil, hot stamping foil, gold leaf foil or even foil from your kitchen (some call it aluminium or tin foil). I you want to use foil from the kitchen … here is a video to help you with that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZkC_axbeUE

02 Wk4 Tech Stash

For my card, I used kitchen foil. I put large sized double-sided tape onto a sheet of cardstock and then layered the foil over this and smoothed it out. Then cut off the access and ran this whole sheet through my Gemini Jnr Machine with this embossing folder. While I had my Gemini running I also ran through a scallop circle die and plain circle die, then stamped this sentiment on the circle and mounted this on the card. This was done after I had run a black pen around the words on the embossed panel just to help the words to stand out a bit better.

Thanks for coming and looking at my Design Team project for the latest challenge over at the 52CCT challenge. I hope that you will come on over to our blog and participate in our challenge. Before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

52CCT February Theme

Hello everyone, today is the 3rd week in February and this means over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we have a Theme Challenge. And Netta this month has chosen

03 February theme

This theme I think can be used in so many different ways. I love it when the challenge is so open like this.

02 Wk3 Theme

This adorable bear is “Christmas Teddy Cocoa” from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. I coloured him in with my Copic markers and used my White Opal Liquid Pearls for the fuzz around his Santa Hat. I matted each of the layers with Maroon Cardstock and left the rest of the card pretty simple.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project for 52CCT. I hope that you will consider coming over to our blog and playing along with our challenge. Before you leave my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Until my next post,

52CCT February Colour

Hello everyone, today it is time for us to have some fun with colour. It is the second week of February and this means it is colour challenge time over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. And this week Netta has chosen these colours for us to have fun with …

02 Feb colour

Netta wants us to have fun with Monochromatic Tones of Blue. This should be a lot of fun but also a challenge as well as sticking with just one colour palette.

02 Wk2 Colour

This ended up being a fun card to design. I got to play with a lot of different supplies in my craft room. I have used a stripes embossing folder for the background paper, the lacy strip across the middle was actually white to start off but I used 2 Distress Inks to colour it up with my makeup brushes. I stamped the word tree image with 3 different blue inks and ran my inks around the edge of the panel. Lots of fun to make but a simple design I think?

52CCT January Theme

Hello everyone, and welcome to week 3 of January with the team from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. With it being the 3rd week of the month it is time for us to have a Theme Challenge. Our hostess Andreja has chosen

03 January theme

What a wonderful theme to play with this week. And I think that this could be used in so many ways.

01 Wk3 Themer

As I started looking through my Christmas paper stash I found this piece that was big enough for my background paper. I knew that I had these present stickers in my stash; previously I had used these on Birthday cards but they fitted in so well with this theme. It just goes to show you that your images can have multi-purposes. 🙂 Just by adding a Christmas sentiment they become Christmas presents.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my Design Team project for our Theme Challenge over at 52CCT. I hope that you will come on over and play along with us. Before you go from my blog I would like to leave you with this thought for this post.

52CCT January Colour

Hello everyone, welcome to week 2 of January challenges. With it being week 2 we are going to be having fun with colour this time around and our host Andreja has chosen these ones for us to play with.

This is such a wonderful set of colours to play along with. When I saw this combo I knew exactly what I wanted to do for it.

01 Wk2 Colour

So what do you think of my choice? The papers that I have used are from a Kasiercraft paper pack that is Australian inspired papers. The Kookaburra image is from Make it Crafty and is a digital image so I can size him for any project. The sentiment I made on my computer and then coloured it in with my distress inks so it wasn’t so stark.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project for our colour challenge this week. I hope that you will stop on by our blog and play along with our challenge. But before you go on over there I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Keep going at your pace; it is enough.
