Clare's Challenge...Pastel Colors and include a Circle.

Clare's Challenge was again made using the Hunky Dory Christmas Bumper Pack.
I again folded an A4 Scene in half, then I cut the front panel in half.
The part I cut off I then stuck to the inside matching it up to the front.
My topper is from the same pack.
I used velvet ric rac ribbon and stuck gems along it.
The sentiment I backed and stuck to the edge of the topper.

Inspiration Birthday Card.

This card I was making for fun is now for my friend Janet's Birthday next month has she loves the colour purple..
It's taken from the free disc that you get with the Debbie Moore Inspiration Magazine..
Great card to make only problem was you had to download several sheets to make the card..
Good thing I have lots of bits left to make other cards with.
I also made a box to put it in as it has a curved front to it.

Zoe's Card...Clean and Simple..

The main card is made from my favorite card, Centura Pearl...
I used the same snowflake stamp from the previous card using distress ink to stamp with..
The sentiment and holly leaves are from the same stamp set as the snowflakes..
I finished with gems for the berries and in the centre of the snow flakes and ribbon on the edge..

Lizzie's Card...Vintage..

I thought I was going to have trouble with this card but I was inspired by two of my crafting buddies..Mark and AJ who do a lot of steam punk type crafting...
I used a Kanban Topper backing it with black card and very carefully cutting round the main shape.
 The main card I stamped with snowflakes and distressed with vintage photo ink..
AJ gave me the ribbon type feature which he won in a blog candy.
I then finished it with a sentiment from the same Kanban topper sheet and put gems in for the car head lights..

Sylvie's Card....Silver and one other colour..

My card for this challenge was great to do..
I used silver mirror card for the main card and used cutting dies as a black silhouette effect for the sleigh, reindeer and tree, finishing off with peel offs for the stars, reins and frame.

Clare's Card...Use Kraft Card some where...

On this card I used Kraft card as the main feature.
I used a Christmas tree embossing folder, then cut out the shape with cutting dies, then followed the lines of the tree with Stickles.
I cut out the corners in the Kraft card and finished with a Kraft card tag and sentiment.

Steam Punk

In between making my Christmas Cards I had a Birthday Card to make for my partners son.
The image is from my good friend Mark.
I coloured it using my Spectrum Noir Pens and grunged the outer with Distress Inks.
The clock face is a shrink plastic freebie that I got in a magazine.
I cut out the lettering on my Ecraft and finished embellishing it with ribbon and brads.
The lace effect underneath the son I am not sure what that is called but it made a good effect.
