Winter sledge

Hi, and welcome to my blog.

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, the theme challenge is winter sledges . I’ve had this cute bear sledge stamp for the longest time – it was a freebie on the front of a magazine a million moons ago…

I based my card on one I saw by an American Stampin’ Up demo, also many moons ago…

I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card, and created a window on the front with a piece of acetate. I used 3 colours to colour the image – real red, lucky limeade and crumb cake Stampin’ write markers, with a little touch of pink pirouette in the kitten’s ears and nose.

I added a strip of dsp from my scraps box, and a holly die cut, topped with 3 adhesive pearls coloured with a red alcohol marker. Finally, I added some dazzling diamonds to the snow using a quickie glue pen and rounded the bottom corners using the We R Memory Keepers corner chomper.

I hope you like my card for this week and you are inspired to join the lovely ladies at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Enjoy your weekend.

Christmas stocking

Hi, and welcome. I hope you’re enjoying your day.

We have a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week – to use a wood background…

Looking through my stash of dsp, I thought this wood effect paper would be perfect …

I couldn’t resist this Christmas stocking die set by Sizzix, which is on offer on their website at the moment. It looks so pretty in cherry cobbler and whisper white, with sprigs in old olive cardstock cut with the Tim Holtz Holiday Greens die set.

I love this verse from the More Merry Messages stamp set. Stamped in black stazon ink onto whisper white card, then the edges distressed with scissors.

I added a glittery snowflake, and a tiny heart made from paper clay.

I hope you like my card for this week and you’re inspired to join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Enjoy your weekend.
