Week #17 Wreath Christmas Card - Wreath and Glossy Accents !



Now repeat after me, I will never rush using a Glossy Accent bottle .... I wish I followed this very good tip. The fact is like this: Vince to me "Did you make your weekly Christmas card ?" Cue to me with panic on my face !!! LOL

I need to be seen I keep forgetting everything ! Doh !

Anyhoo as you can see from the picture I've highlighted the berries with glossy accent but 'fudged' the ones on the right, too late to remake the card it had to do, sorry. This lovely wreath card come from the Paper Flair Christmas Kit (HOTP) and it's so much fun to cut out and assemble. I added my touch adding that striped fabric brad, the glossy accent on the berries and finally outlined the leaves with glitter Sakura pen.

So THIS WEEK'S THEME is make a Christmas card with a wreath on it and/or use glossy accents to highlight an element(s) on the card. Have fun !

Week #16 Snowflakes Christmas Card - Snowflakes and embossing !


A bit late this week as I was still making cards yesterday night for the lovely Pamela at craftycatz.co.uk on my other blog: craftingmad.blogspot.com

This week's challenge is to make a Christmas card with snowflakes and/or embossing either by hand or with embossing folders.

I used the swiss dots and my trusted cuttlebug, then used three Hot Off the Press brad buddies ( I know to use one is bad enough but three......extreme ! LOL). Sentiment also is from HOTP but it's a fabric feel sticker, they are brillant and add more texture to a card.

So have fun with your cardmaking this week and add you Christmas creations on Mr Linky and add your comments teh usual way. Thanks for keeping up this challenge. xoxoxoxox

Week #15 Dimensional Christmas Cards - Cards from a Kit !


This week's theme is to make as many Christmas cards from a kit you feel like making. Vince has made a few cards from this kit we purchased from Vicky (who in turn bought it from QVC but decided she no longer wanted it). It's a fun kit and I really like the clean lines and modern look of it.

So there you go, pick up that kit you promised you'll make cards from one day and get crafting. Add your creations to Mr Linky or/and comment the usual way. I don't mind not folllowing my theme as it's not compulsory but make sure you're adding your Christmas creations to Mr Linky, please. Thank you ! :)

Week #14 Whimsical Brads Christmas Card - Big Brads and Steel Gray



This week we're back unto HOTP papers and I thought I would go for a cool combination of gray (grey) and light blue. I also used some big whit brads where I've applied some rub-ons. The whole lot is lifted away from the base card with foam squares.

I hope you like this week's theme which is Brads and/or Steel Gray (Grey) colour.

Add your CHRISTMAS cards to Mr Linky or leave your comment as usual ! Have fun !
