Look out it's another post!

Morning all,

Honestly, you don't hear anything from me for weeks and then I've four projects to share with you!!!

Right, starting at the top then .... here's make number ONE:-

  • I used a 7 x 5 300 GSM scallop edged card.
  • 4 inch spotted card panel
  • Piece of white card 3 1/2 inches which I rounded the corners on using an C-cut corner rounder.
  • Then I wrapped bakers twine twice round the card.
  • I then stamped the sentiment onto the white card using Archival Brilliance peacock ink, followed by the snowflakes (these were free with a magazine sometime ago). 
  • I glued pearls to the middle of the snowflake and attached the sentiment to the spotted card panel before attaching to the card stock.
  • I finished off with two spotted bows,

I'll be entering the above project over at the Friday mashup where you can EITHER make a silver and gold project OR a Christmas project OR BOTH!!! I went with a Christmas project ... as I suspect you have been able to see! I'll also be entering this over at Addicted to CAS where the challenge is "DOTS"

And card number TWO:-

Materials used:
  • I stamped the holly and baubles which were again from a magazine onto a 6 x 4 card blank using Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • With pinflair glue I attached some red gems.

Here's card number THREE:-

Materials used:
  • I stamped the reindeer and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink.

I'll be entering the above card over at the Craftbubble2½ (registrations required) group for the current Rudolph Day Challenge which is to feature "Festive Animals or Birds".

And, finally, card number FOUR:-

Materials used:
  • I used VersaColour wild berries to stamp the star and memento tuxedo black ink for the sentiment.
  • Finished off  putting Gems onto all the points of the star, again using my pinflair glue.

Thanks for stopping by

Welcome to our first post!

This is the first post on this blog ....... it's a joint blog run by Kathy and Lilian so you will see all sorts of things appearing here. I (Kathy) make quite a lot of cards but dabble in ATC's, art journaling, canvases and, occasionally, scrapbooking whereas Lilian makes cards, knits, cross stitches so we cross a fair few crafts between us.
Lilian's having trouble with blogger right now so I'm posting this but the makes are all Lilian's!

A Christmas card made for a One Layer Card challenge using a fancy C6 card blank, black ink and some images obtained free from a magazine .... the sparkle? well that's my secret ingredient - doesn't sparkle make ALL things better?

Another Christmas card, this time using a coloured C6 aperture blank, more magazine images and black ink and that all important sparkle

An all occasion card .... blinged up it could be Christmas, it could be a masculine card too - this is why I've not put a sentiment on it. Again, I used images which had been free with a magazine - I've had so many I can't remember the names of the mags!

Another Christmas card using a 6" square gold aperture card and a snowie image obtained from a friend, coloured with alcohol markers and then the obligatory twinkle added.

I hope you've enjoyed this first joint post - come back and see us again
