On holiday!

I was hoping to make some more cards this week, but time has gone so quickly getting ready for our holiday this weekend.   I've got my Promarkers packed and also my Zentangle kit - just in case the weather's bad.

Back in two weeks!

Christmas presents

I made this card for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge which is 'Christmas Presents' and also for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge 'sequins and/or pearls'.  All the papers and embellishments are from my snippets drawer, so I'm also in Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground.

Upcycled Christmas cards
Gold mirri card
Blue and pink papers
Gold pearls
Gold sparkly ribbon

I layered blue papers to gold mirri card, covering the join with pink paper and a strip of gold sparkly ribbon, before attaching it to a dark blue card blank.   The image and sentiment were upcycled from last year's Christmas cards and attached to the card with foam tape.  To finish, I attached gold pearls to the top and bottom of the card.

My final card to share today is for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge which is 'Spots and Stripes'.

Upcycled Christmas card

Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large and Lacey Ovals dies

I layered red spot paper onto gold mirri and attached it to the card front.   A strip of stripe paper was layered onto gold mirri and fastened to the card front.  I die-cut the image and attached it to a gold mirri lacey ovals die cut, this was attached to the card front with foam tape.

Christmas Wishes

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted to my blog.   My first card is for this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge 'Christmas Ornaments' and I made it by following this week sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

Woodware 'Bubble Wreath' stamp
Unknown sentiment stamp (had been a magazine freebie)
Silver mirri card
Blue and red papers
Versafine Majestic Blue ink
Clear embossing powder
Dark blue ribbon
Silver Stickles

I attached blue paper to silver mirri and covered the join with a strip of red paper - this was then attached to the card front.   The Christmas ornaments and sentiment were stamped with Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.   I glued strips of ribbon from the top of each ornament and fastened them to the back of the card, before layering it to a piece of silver mirri and attaching it to the card front.  The sentiment was layered onto silver mirri and attached to the card front with foam tape.  I used assorted gems and silver Stickles to decorate the ornaments.  To finish, I made small bows and attached them to the to of the ornaments.
