Week #35 Stripe and Dots Kanban Card - Stripe N Dots or No fabric ribbon Theme

I had to use some of those Kanban papers that were included free in this month Creative CardMaking Magazine. I've added some Stampin' Up gem brads and a few generic pearly small gems. The ribbon was made with an offcut of the main sentiment.

This week THEME is Stripes N Dots or/and No Fabric Ribbon (you can use paper). Have fun with it. Link to your blog or pictures with Mr Linky, leave comments in the usual place...don't forget each entry or comments get you closer to winning either of the two blog candy. Good Luck!

Week #34 Poinsettia Christmas Card - Jak Decoupage Sheet or Any other flowery Yuletide theme

Jak Heath (yes the lady from La Pashe) posted a lovely Poinsettia sheet to decoupage on her blog and I thought why not try it. So I made this card assembling the bits, I also used Sakura pens to highlight the leaves with clear and glittery transparent. I used this mesh I bought years back but never used and added a scrap paper I found in my scrap box that was the nearest match to the red on the leaves, ribbon is taffeta from Stampin' Up.

So this week THEME IS POINSETTIA OR ANY OTHER FLOWERY CHRISTMASSEY CARD...have fun with it and as usual use MR Linky to post your links to your card(s). You can comment the usual way. You don't have to follow the theme to play. Don't forget any entry be it cards or comments count for the blog candy !

Week #33 Paper Flair Shape Christmas Card kit - From a Kit !





Last week we had the theme from a sketch.....this week THE THEME IS 'FROM A KIT'.

I picked the Paper Flair Shaped Christmas Card Kit from Hot Off The Press. As you can see I had lots of fun making these cards, they don't take more than 20 minutes each, it's just the cutting around that takes time. I also added some sakura transparent glitter but unfortunately the camera doesn't always pick it up.

So do you have a Christmas kit you haven't touched for a while just pull it out of the box and whip some cards out...at least 3 or 4 so you have more to add to your stash.

Add your cards to Mr Linky. You don't have to follow the theme just add any Christmas card you make during the week and don't forget that each entry (cards or/and comments) will earn you an entry for my blog candy ! (see above)

Week #32 Fun Ice Skating Bear Card (Di Hickman Card Sketch August #1) - Theme follow a sketch !

Well Di Hickman had this super cute sketch on her blog and I thought why not. I needed to finish this card for my lovely friend Gill at foilplay.co.uk as I promised her an extra one with bear to match his other brother.

I got so many good comments on twitter and facebook with this card that I thought I better use it this week and the THEME is 'use a sketch' any sketch that takes your fancy.

I've used Patchwork Kingdom decoupage christmast bear and Kanban bling both available from foilplay.co.uk, finally some paper from the Hot Off the Press cardmakers jewel pad. Love the effect of faux velvet on that paper. I hope you like it !

As usual add your creations with Mr Linky or post a comment. You can add any Christmas cards you don't have to follow the theme.
