Christmas gifts …

Hello and welcome to my blog. I’m so pleased I was able to join the ladies on the Design Team at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for this week’s theme challenge.  This was a great challenge for using up my scraps of designer series paper – all these gorgeous designs are from one paper pack – Gilded Winter.  The bow builder punch by Stampin’ Up made a perfect topper for the stack of presents, all popped up on dimensionals to give a 3D look.

The papers are so lush with their glitter and foil – such pretty patterns, and a little goes a long way.  The Tim Holtz die cut sentiment is from the same paper pack.

I hope you like my card for this week.  The ladies on the Design Team have created lots of lovely cards to inspire you so why not take a look and join in at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

Punch art candles …

Hello and welcome to my blog. This week’s challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to choose a previous theme. I unfortunately missed some of the challenges earlier this year, so it was a no-brainer for me to start at the beginning and choose the one I missed in January – Christmas candles …

Candles theme

I used scraps of dsp to make these punch art candles, cutting 3 different lengths and using different patterns to form their shape.  For the flames, I used the bird punch by Stampin’ Up to punch the wing from glitter cardstock and adhered them to the card with dimensionals. This punch will be retiring soon, which I’m sad about as it’s so versatile and I’ve used it so much. Whisper white cardstock was used for the background and the die cut sentiment …
