Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 30

I am up to the final day of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is "Do What You Love".  What I love to do is try new folds so for my final card, I have used a Petal Fold Card fold with a poinsettia image from Beccy's Place.

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 29

We are up to Day 29 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is the letter Z.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used a zoo image in the form of a giraffe and also sentiments from Merle Digital Stamps and  a Z Fold (Double) card fold

I used two papers from a christmas paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I added a little reindeer sticker to the card as well (he is looking back at the giraffe!). 

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 28

I am up to Day 28 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is the letter Y.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used Young Christ and Yuletide card fold (see next para).

Once again I struggled to find a fold that works with the letter Y - so I resorted to the same creativity as last year!  This fold is a "Yuletide" fold - okay I just renamed Beccy's A Frame Card Fold to fit the letter but as Beccy doesn't have a Y fold on her list I had to cheat!

I have also used some metallic grey cardstock.  I "wrapped" the card like a gift with some white glitter ribbon.  I also used some metallic gold to mat both the image and sentiment.

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 25

I am up to Day XXXX of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is the letter V.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used a vase image and a Viewmaster card.

As Beccy doesn't have a tutorial for a Viewmaster card, I followed this You Tube video.  It wasn't as easy to follow as Beccy's tutorials but I got there in the end.

I used four different colourways of the image on my viewmaster so here are the different views of the card:

I have also used a black and white paper from a christmas paper pad.  It works well with the silhouette image and kind of looks like falling snowflakes in a night sky (that's what I see anyway!).  I also inked the edges of the image and sentiment with Distress Ink.  The image is from Beccy's Place - In The Christmas Garden Digital Stamps.

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 22

I am up to Day 11 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is to CASE one of my older cards.  I found this one from 2015, which I am not completely happy with.  I feel the Angelina fibre is a bit heavy and the sentiment on the ribbon gets a bit lost.


And this is the 2018 version:




I used less Angelina fibre on this one and changed the placement of it to vertical rather than horizontal.  I also used a bit more of a vintage colour scheme.  I replace the ribbon with some washi tape that I think makes the sentiment easier to read.  I changed the bear to a cream colour to more fit the vintage colour scheme.   I also used Glimmer Paste and Wink Of Stella for the sparkle which is a bit more subtle than what I used last time (which I think is Kindy Glitz).  Colouring of the image in both cases is with copic markers.

Trees - image from Beccy's Place
Three trees

http://beccysplace.blogspot.com/2018/11/day-20-r.html

I have used a paper from a christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I fussy cut the image from Beccy's Place and coloured it with copic markers.  I adhered it to the front of the card.  I thought about embellishing the card further but everything I went to add just looked wrong so I left it clean and simple.

Love Always

The challenge this fortnight at Incy Wincy Designs is to create a square card.  The challenge is sponsored by Star Stampz.


I carried my squares through the card as well.  I used an image from Star Stampz called Thanksgiving Harvest.



I also used a paper and sentiment from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I attached three brads to the card - two larger and one smaller one.  Colouring of the image is with copic markers.

Wonder

This month's challenge at Path Of Positivity is Shades Of Green.  The sponsors for November are Scribbles Designs and Ike's Art.



I went completely green with my midway project using an image called Artichoke Doodle and a sentiment from Words 1 (both are from Scribbles Designs).


I also used a template for a step card.  The paper is from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I added some strips of bling ad two buttons.  Colouring of the image is with copic markers while the edges of both the image and sentiment are inked with Distress Ink - Forest Moss.

Little Hazel

I'm a bit late with my post for the new challenge at Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends.  As per usual, the theme is Anything Goes and this challenge we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter.

It is just over a month until Christmas so I have used a pre-coloured christmas image from The Paper Shelter called Little Hazel.



I have also used Wink Of Stella, snowflake gems and a fabric snowflake embellishment.  The background is glitter cardstock in silver.

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 19

We are up to Day 19 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is the letter Q.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used Quilted Puddings (which I think has been retired) and a card fold for a Quatro Card.

Month Of Holiday Cards Day 18

I am up to Day 18 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards (still a day behind!) and this time the prompt is the letter P.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used pudding images which I'm fairly certain have been retired (such a shame as this is such a versatile set) and a Pop-Up Card Fold.



And the inside:

Silent Night

The start of the November challenge at Scribbles Designs is upon us and this time the theme is "Reindeer Games".  It is getting closer to christmas so time to be thinking about reindeer - we would love you to link up your reindeer, moose, deer, elk or caribou themed cards.


I have used an image and sentiment from Scribbles Designs and a digital paper from Scribbles Doodle Designs:
Image - Too Moose
Sentiment - Silent
Paper - Friday Free Digi Snowflake Paper



I inked the edges of the image and sentiment with a Distress Ink pad.  Colouring of Too Moose is with copic markers.  I also added a strip of white glitter ribbon and some blue gemstones.

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day Sixteen

I am up to Day 16 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is the letter N.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used images and sentiments from Nutcracker Digital Image Set and the card fold is for a Never Ending Card.

This one is a bit picture heavy as there are four different views of the card:

I used yellow cardstock for the base.  As well as the images and sentiments from Beccy's Place, I added a tree sticker and a bauble sticker.  I used a pen to add stitching lines.  Colouring of the nutcrackers is with copic markers.

I ran into a couple of problems with this one.  My low tack tape wasn't low tack enough and took some of the paper with it so I added a sentiment to the top of the card to cover the rip in the paper.  I also had some construction problems but sorted them in the end.

This one needs two photos:

Merry Christmas To You

It is midway through the month of November already!   That means it is time for some midway inspiration for the card challenge at the 12 Months Of Christmas challenge.  As a reminder, this month the challenge is sponsored by Limited Runs and has an optional theme of All Tied Up For Christmas.



I have used an image from Limited Runs called Winter Fox.  The sentiment is also from Limited Runs.


I also used two digital papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles - the green glitter one in the background as well as the Christmas tree one on the tag. I used some patterned gold cardstock for the pocket.  I used ribbon across the pocket and some twine on the tag.  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.
