Snow festival …

Hello and welcome. It’s the first Saturday in February which means it’s time for a sketch challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

I delved into my stash of Christmas dsp and decided on this pattern from the Snow Festival paper pack by Stampin’ Up to use on the background of my card …

It was fun colouring this cute image with my stampin’ write marker pens, taking inspiration from the dsp for my choice of colours. 

I added dazzling diamonds with a quickie glue pen for some added sparkle … 

I hope you like my card for this week.  We would love for you to join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and show us your beautiful art work. 

It’s great to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a message.

Thanks for dropping by today

Festive foliage …

Hello and welcome to my blog. There’s another cracking card challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week. I think this would make a perfect card for my husband, with the masculine colours and simple design …

Festive foliage

Crumb cake cardstock for the base, with old olive and whisper white accents – it was all about the textures with this one, from the woodgrain embossed background, to the foliage itself. Silver glimmer paper provided festive sparkle, and baker’s twine some softness too.
