Silent Night

The pattern on the apron reminded me a bit of tartan (even though it is actually a checkerboard pattern) so I teamed the image with a tartan paper:

Hello

I belong to a NZ Card Swap Group.  Each month we have a different challenge.   With our card for the June challenge we had to include some "bits" from our "maybe I'll get around to using this someday" box.  This is what I received to work with:


For the July challenge, we had to use at least 3 of those bits on the front of our card.  After much thinking about it and running some ideas past another member of the group, I came up with this:



And with the tag, pulled out:



As you can see from the top photo, I had quite large bits to work with.  I added some background paper to co-ordinate with the circular piece  I also added a pocket on the front of the card to give me a bit more space to add the third element.  I stencilled one of the pieces using a Tim Holtz stencil and some glimmer paste.  I added this over the pocket and then trimmed off the excess.  The circle fitted perfectly on top of that piece.  I then punched a hole in the oval piece, added an eyelet, twine and a sentiment.

I still have three pieces left over so may come up with something using them at some point.

April revisited

I am re-visiting my card for the April Challenge at Beccy's Place.  For the June challenge, we are challenged to CASE a previous card and that is the card that I have chosen to CASE.  I'll start with showing the April card as a reminder.



And this is the July version:


 
 
I have used a digital paper as well as an image from Beccy's Place.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I used the same embossing folder as for the April version, but this time I added some colour using Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish.  I also switched out the twine for satin ribbon.

CatchThe Bug Christmas In July Day Four

I'm not sure why I look at this image and think this elf is holding a softball bat and is ready to receive a ball pitched at him.  I think it is something to do with his stance.  I got a bit carried away with my green markers on this one!

I have used a subtle green patterned paper for the background.  Over the top I added some gem ribbon (not sure if that is what it is actually called) that I bought a year ago. It was sold by the metre so I think I got at least 1 metre of each colour I bought so it will last me for a while.  The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers, Wink Of Stella and Kindy Glitz.

CatchThe Bug Christmas In July Day Three

For Day Three, it was time to make anything but a card.  I was originally intending to create a tag (never have enough of them at Christmas) but I couldn't find my die for my tags.  I also have some manilla pre-made tags which I couldn't find.  In the search for my die, I came across some bags that I had bought to decorate, so opted to create a bag instead:

For A Friend

Normally when I see a square sketch I more often than not change it to a rectangle.  This time I changed a rectangular sketch to a square sketch.  I had this image already printed out in my stash and the size of it wasn't going to work with the usual rectangle card that I create.

Canvas

This month's image at Limited Runs is a bit different from previous months.  In honour of that, I created something different to what I normally do:

I have used a mini canvas.  I added some texture paste and neon glitter.  I then stencilled some modelling paste mixed with rust effect paste using a Tim Holtz stencil.  I sprinkled some minute glass beads on top of the modelling paste.  I also sponged some inks around the canvas (can't remember what I used now as I did that bit over a week ago). The image is from Limited Runs and is coloured with copic markers.  I tored the edges of the image and inked those.
