Baby It's Cold Outside

 Not here it isn't!  Today is the start of summer so fairly warm outside.

Beccy's Place - Month of Holiday Cards
https://beccyschallenges.blogspot.com/2021/11/month-of-holiday-cards-challenge.html

I have used a digital paper and digital image that Beccy has supplied for the December Challenge.  The sentiment is also from Beccy's Place.  I added some Wink of Stella to Jim The Snowman and some Glossy Accents to his nose and the bauble hanging from his hat.

Hello

 The theme for our NZ Card Swap Group for November is to create an interactive card.  I had found one that I liked so decided to give it a try.  I had quite a few issues in creating this but I ran out of November to try a different fold so I had to try and get it to work.  



I have used papers from a paper pack by Uniti. 

I followed a tutorial for a Popping Flap Card by JanB Cards.

25th December

I am having another night of not sleeping so got up and saw that there was another race going on at Beccy's Place.  I think this time it might be a case of my subconscious thinking that I'm going to miss the early bus that I need to catch in the morning.  I had hoped that I would manage to sleep until 4.30am at least but no - 2.30am again.

Beccy's Place - Month of Holiday Cards - Race
https://beccysplace.blogspot.com/2021/11/ready-set-go_41.html

I have used some left over bits from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  It is an older paper pad that I have used most of the papers from but still have most of the borders, tags, etc that come in the back of the pad.  Nothing like a race in the middle of the night to decide to have a play and see what I could come up with.

You give me butterflies

 I haven't managed to join in the Butterfly Challenge for a while and didn't think I was going to get there this month either.  It is a bit of a last minute run but I think I have made it in time.

https://butterflyspotchallenge.blogspot.com/2021/11/164-spin-butterfly-wheel-with-w-for.html

I think I have used all the elements (if the sentiment counts as words)

Merry Christmas

 While I was doing the dishes, another race started at Beccy's Place.  I had been working on this before I took a break so decided to quickly finish it, photograph, watermark and upload.


I have used a digital paper from Lozzy (Micro Dots).  The image is from Di's Digi Downloads and the sentiment is from a Kaisercraft paper padd.  Colouring is with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  I also added some glitter foam snowflakes.

Gnome Mini Card

I have made a number of 8cm x 8cm mini cards this November using up some of the scraps from the daily alphabet prompts.  You may ask "Why this size?"  Our A4 cardstock measures 21cm x 29.6 so if I cut a 13cm square card from it, I am left with a strip of 8cm x 29.6cm.  I then cut this down to 8cm x 16cm to create an 8cm x 8cm card.  I still have a bit of wastage but it does use up most of the sheet.


I have used scraps from various cards from November.  The pre-coloured image is from Beccy's Place.

https://beccysplace.blogspot.com/2021/11/a-month-of-holiday-cards-challenge.html

I placed the remaining scraps that I had left on a blank 8cm x 8cm card to show what wasn't used this month.  Not quite enough for another mini card!



Snowman Mini Card

Here is another mini 8cm x 8cm card for attaching to gifts:


I have placed some of the pieces that I had left on one of the mini cards. The pre-coloured image is  from Beccy's Place.

 I think this is my final 8cm x 8cm card using the Anna Helman design.  I have two more mini cards to upload but neither use this design.


I have used scraps from various alphabet prompts during the Month of Holiday Cards at Beccy's Place.  I am down to fairly small pieces now.  The pre-coloured image is from Beccy's Place

I have used scraps from several day's challenges.  The pre-coloured image is from Beccy's Place.

Merry Christmas from all of us to all of you

 It is the final day of the Month of Holiday Cards Challenge at Beccy's Place.  As usual, Beccy finishes with a Do What You Love Challenge theme.  After a month of trying many new card folds, I just had to finish with a card fold.  I worked on this one yesterday in anticipation of this being the theme today and just had to add the panels to the front this morning.  This one is another card tutorial from Sam Calcott - most of this months have been her tutorials so I thought it was appropriate to round out the month with one of hers.



I have used digital papers from Lozzy.  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  Colouring is with copic markers.   I added some ephemera to the inside of the card.

I followed a tutorial for a Multi-Panel Pop Up Card by Sam Calcott

Keep Calm and Count Snowflakes

I thought I'd uploaded this card a couple of days ago but I've searched through my blog and can't see it so I must have got distracted in the middle of getting it uploaded and then convinced myself I had.  I got a better night's sleep last night so I'm way more with it today.


I have used scraps from Day Eleven (J) and two from Day Twenty Six (W).  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  Colouring i with copic markers and Wink of Stella.  After adding all the scraps I embossed the entire piece.  I then added it to a card base and layered the image and sentiment on top.

Let It Snow

 These scraps I had saved as I knew I was using green on my Day Twenty Nine card.  I ended up not adding anything from that day when I the card together.  I decided to add some faux stitching to pull it all together and tone down the "whiteness" of the card.


I have used scraps from Day Sixteen (N) and Day Nineteen (Q).  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added a glitter foam snowflake.  I bought a lot of packets of these when I saw them in the Dollar type stores a couple of years ago and they are starting to run low.  I really need to go and have a look to see what they have this year but with one thing and another I haven't been to the shops much recently.

Happy Holidays

I've combined a christmas card with a Happy themed challenge - by using a pretty Happy Holidays sentiment. I carried through the snowflakes to the embellishments.

Let's Get Festive

I think this will be my last card following a Scraps tutorial (unless I end up doing another mini card using the Anna Helman design).  Before the month of November, I saved 65 cards (some You Tube tutorials had 5-10 in them so not that many videos).  Most of the tutorials were by Sam Calcott but I did find some others, like this one:


I ended up making 22 of the 65 cards that I saved.  When I have some time, I'm going to draft out the other cards that I have saved so that they are easier to follow.  I have one in particular that I would have liked to have attempted but it was a bit hard following the pattern.  Sam used punches in her tutorial but I didn't have the punches so drawing it out may help me figure the layout.

I have used scraps from Day Three (C), Day Sixteen (N), Day Eighteen (P) and Day Twenty Nine (Z).  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some gold Nuvo Drops to some of the squares.

I still have some smallish scraps left so will make a few more of the 8cm x 8cm cards to use as many of them up as I can.

I followed a tutorial for Scraps Cards by Karen's Kards & More.

I have used scraps from Day Eight (G), Day Fifteen (M), Day Sixteen (N), Day Twenty Six (W) and Day Twenty Nine (Z).  The sentiment is from Beccy's Place.  I also added three silver dimensional stars.

Have a Warm and Cozy Holiday

This is another Scraps card that I had most of the squares cut as I went along but decided to wait until I had created the card for Day Twenty Nine (Z) as I knew the offcuts would be big enough to get decent sized scraps.


I have used paper scraps from Day Five (E), Day Fifteen (M), Day Sixteen (N), Day Eighteen (P), Day Twenty One (S) and Day Twenty Nine (Z) The sentiment is from Beccy's Place.  The cactus Christmas tree is a dimensional sticker.

Christmas Blessings

I have had this Scraps card partially done for some time but was waiting until I finished the card for Day Twenty Nine (Z) as I knew that I was going to use more green papers on that one.

I read a comment from one of the other participants on another of my scraps card that she is saving the links to create some of the Scraps cards.  I'm glad that someone is using the links to the tutorials - I need to give credit to the original artist anyway but it is nice to know they are inspiring others.


I have used scraps from Day Two (B), Day Sixteen (N), Day Nineteen (Q) and Day Twenty Nine (Z).  The sentiment is from Beccy's Place.  Inking is with Distress Ink.

Today is the prompt for the last letter of the alphabet at the Month of Holiday Cards Challenge at Beccy's Place.  Where has the month gone?

This card was a simple one to execute - probably because I make it so often.  I have some Scraps cards partially prepared that were just waiting for the scraps from this card so hopefully I will get those finished and uploaded sometime this afternoon.



I have used the following Z items:

Make It Merry

I'm still awake at 4.50am so it looks like I'm not going to get back to sleep.  Usually if I get up in the middle of the night, I feel tired again after an hour or so.  Not happening tonight.  Still, I had some time to finish off another scraps card.

This is the another of the 8cm x 8cm mini cards that I usually create each year.  I suspect that I will have a few on the last day with the final scraps for the month.  My aim is to have the scraps to the point that I don't have enough to create one last mini card.


I have used scrap papers from various days of the Month of Holiday Cards alphabet prompts at Beccy's Place.  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  Colouring is with copic markers.

Drummer Girl

I had two triangular pieces left over from my Kite Card for K.  I decided to flip one over so I could put them in opposite corners of a slimline card on the diagonal:


I have used papers from Day Thirteen (K) - the top triangle is the reverse of the bottom triangle.  This was a good way to use triangular pieces rather than chop them up.  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.

We are at the difficult end of the alphabet and this letter of the alphabet always seems to be the hardest.  While yellow is the obvious colour, and Beccy has a tutorial for Y, it just ends up being a card I'm not happy with.  This is the only card for a letter of the alphabet where I don't feature an image using the alphabet prompt.

This is the second time I have made this card fold and I'm not happy with either of them.  The fact that it falls near the end of the month probably doesn't help either.  Maybe next year, I should work on this one earlier in the month!


I have used the following Y items:

Merry Christmas

We have an overcast day here today so I'm not feeling the heat as much.  It is a nice temperature to get things done but I thought I'd take a break and upload this card that I completed yesterday but didn't get around to posting.

I have used papers and a label from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Paper Nest Dolls.n Colouring is with copic markers.  I added some Glossy Accents to the candy cane and three gems to the label.

I followed the sketch at Cheerful Sketches:

Another scraps card using the Anna Helman tutorial.  I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.


I have used scraps from Day One (A), Day Ten (I), Day Eleven (J), Day Eighteen (P) and Day Twenty Seven (X).  The sentiment is from Beccy's Place and the snowflakes are from this card which I posted on 24th November.

I followed a tutorial from Anna Helman.  This is the third different colourway I have made from the same tutorial.
