Hello, I hope you are all having a good evening and I wish everybody a very happy Guy Fawkes night for tomorrow, firstly I would like to apologise for my lack of posts this week, its been one of those weeks where I really don’t know where the time has gone!
Secondly please check out my new artwork gallery on here, there is not massive amounts on there yet as I am finding that watermarking images is taking up a lot of time but I will be adding a lot more to it over the next few days, I hope you like it and if anybody has any interest in my designs please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thirdly I have begun collecting some candy for when I reach 50 followers (which I am a long way off still) I have some items sitting in a bag in the corner waiting for the day though and will be adding to it between now and then.
One last thing before I get to the cards, don’t forget you only have until tomorrow morning to get your cards in to the Distress theme challenge at the PanPastel blog.
This card was made using freebie papers from Quick Cards Magazine and a home-made christmas pudding topper with a few pearls, a peel off greeting and some ribbon and jingle bells, I wont bore you with the how to’s as it’s a really simple design.
This card was made using freebie papers and chipboard shapes from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine I also used an edger punch from Woodware, a corner punch from EK Success, snowflake dies from Mariannes Creatables, a peel off sentiment and some red gems from Dovecraft.
To make this card I began with a 5″ x 5″ card black, I then cut out a square of silver holographic glitter card also 5″ x 5″ and then used my EK Success corner punch on each of the corners. I then measured the square that the corner punch had created and cut a piece of the red paper to fit inside it and stuck it in place. Next I took the green paper with the trees and cut it to the same height as the red paper but a little shorter than the red paper in width and then used my Woodware edger punch along the left hand side and stuck it in to place.
Once this was done I cut out another smaller square of the silver holographic glitter card (8cm x 8cm) and used the EK Success corner punch again on all four corners and stuck it in to place, then cut out the paper with the robin to fit within the square created by the punch and stuck it in to place.
I then took one of the chipboard shapes and stuck my peel off greeting on to it then stuck it on to the card at an angle and then finally I cut out two snowflakes from white card using Mariannes Creatables dies, I stuck the smaller snowflake on top of the larger one and then added red self adhesive gems to the smaller snowflake.
The card is now complete.
Thank you for reading this post, I hope to be back with another new post tomorrow and of course Sunday morning there will be a new post for PanPastels new challenge theme. I love to hear your comments so please do leave a comment and I will then come and visit your blog too.
