Week #21 Noel Green Satin Card - No matting and Simple

This week, I wanted simple and hopefully elegant. I used a lovely Noel stamp from Stampin Up ( I think it's retired now) and coloured in with pastel pencils. Used a lovely satin green ribbon and wove it through the card. Added four big chunky green gems to match. You've noticed I didn't use any matting and that's your challenge this week, no matting no background paper just stamping or using embellishments or you can go for the simple card option: less is more approach.

I hope you're enjoying my weekly Christmas challenge. I had a blast watching the three hours show from Dawn today on QVC and the lovely Catherine was there ! I had to sit on hand a few times and did realise that I already had a couple of items already. LOL

As usual use Mr Linky for your cards. Hugz XXX Fab

Week #20 Let it Snow Christmas Card - Something Punched / White & Blue


This week theme is 'Something Punched' as you can see I punched circles matching the matting paper (hint I punched them out from that very same matting paper - wink). Everything is Hot Off the Press and I always find that square cards have a special something especially when using geometrical arrangements. The alternative theme is Blue and White.

Please add a link to your blog post (not your main blog address) or to your picture on a hosting website using Mr Linky. You can add your comments the usual way. Thank you for playing the Xmas Challenge. You'll be seeing more Stampin' Up products in the near future as I've joined them as a demo. You're more than welcome to tag along when I place my monthly order, join my Stampin' with Fab newsletter to have a monthly reminder with special little extras thrown in. I can't wait to play with their Christmas papers !

Week #19 Victorian Christmas Whimsical Christmas Card - Old fashioned with a twist or altered images




I found this lovely card Vince made a while back and thought it would be perfect for our Christmas challenge. He's used a royalty free victoriana picture and altered it using a fresh colour such as turquoise to give the card a modern twist.

So this week theme is either or both: Old fashioned with a twist / Altered Image

Have fun with this theme and I can't wait to see what you'll be doing with it. As per custom you add your blog permalink (that means straight to your post where you crimbo card is) using Mr Linky or your hosted Xmas card picture . You don't have to follow the theme but make sure it's a Christmas card you're linking too ! LOL

You can add your comment too as usual.

Week #18 Hiding Doggie Christmas Card - Cute and Cheerful Theme

Vince made this lovely doggie hiding under the Santa hat for me with a template so I can make it again. I found those lovely Hot Off the Press papers in the Ultimate Christmas pack. The acetate greeting is HOTP too, just simple matting and layering and edged the papers with colorbox chalk ink in dark brown.

Our blog candy winner is ............HAZEL (DIDO) ! Well done darling, you've been following me since almost the beginning so well deserved. Let me know when you get the book, you should receive it towards the end of the week.

This week's theme is 'Cute & cheerful' so anything that you think match that. Just add your card linking either to your blog entry (permalink please) or your pictures being hosted on photobucket, flikr, etc. using Mr Linky. You can add a comment the usual way.

Thank you for playing the Christmas card challenge.
