A brand new month and a brand new sponsor... well an old friend really. We are delighted to welcome back Ribbon Girl as our sponsor this month!
Mary has an amazing selection of ribbons, trimmings and embellishments, so if you haven't perused her shop before we're sure you'll be delighted with the products available. Do take a look!
This week we have a COLOUR challenge for you to follow.
NON-TRADITIONAL Colour CHRISTMAS CARD
NO red, NO green
You may use metallics and neutrals but please avoid any red or green.
Here are our cards
This tree stamp is a free Penny Black one from one of the craft magazines. I simply clear embossed it a couple of times and inked with Weathered wood distress ink, adding a few dabs of Stickles and some tiny gems.
The Sizzix sentiment was also coloured with the distress ink to match the sky. There is a little clear Wink of Stella on the word, but it doesn't show up terribly well. Now I can't find the pen!
I have been going a little mad this week and there are heaps more cards for this challenge on my personal blog, I would be delighted if you could take a look!
A bit button & bling-mad on this one!
Last year I made Christmas cards with buttons and gems
attached to die-cut triangles to create trees but I fancied
heart-shaped ornaments for this one with a pink & grey theme.
The 'cloud pelmet' is from Mama Elephant: stitched landscape dies
The hearts are die-cut using Clearly Besotted: love hearts set
with Christmas sentiments also Clearly Besotted: Signature Christmas
which are heat-embossed with WOW sparkling silver EP.
To finish some twine from my stash.
Pink Petticoat DP and sentiment, Memory Box die and some gems added.
We hope you have fun with this one as well as cracking on with your production of cards in time to post for Christmas!
Both Sarah and Anne also have other examples on their blogs too, so do pay them a visit!
Anne and I will be going to the Craft Show at the NEC on Thursday this week. Sadly Sarah can't manage it this time but if any of you are going, do call and say Hi! If you do intend being there, email me and I'll let you have my mobile number so that we can find each other!
