Christmas the last stretch!

Peggy the Penguin

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #619 is JMC Designs and the theme is winter. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

So here’s a summary of the materials:

  • White 300gsm A4 sheet cut, scored and folded to make a base card
  • JMC digital image “Peggy” from the Arctic Adventures collection
  • Die cut stamped sentiment
  • Tacky glue
  • White acrylic paint
  • Paper sheet from the Paper Tree, cut to shorten and overlay
  • ice Spruce ditresss oxide ink
  • Snowflake stamp
  • Chameleon pens (RD2, RD4, YO3, CG9)

I coloured my sweet little penguin “Peggy”with Chameleon pens and cut her out on my scan n cut machine.

I then took the paper sheet from a The Paper Tree paper pad and cut it and then fussy cut around the items at the bottom of the sheet so that it could overlaid.

The stars were a little bit bold so I chose to cover the top part of the paper with a thin coat of white acrylic to knock back the colour slightly.

After layering up the papers I stamped some snowflakes in Iced Spruce Distress Oxide and used this to also ink around the edge before mounting it onto a base card. I added the penguin, a sentiment and a snowflake.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a comment.

CRAFT challenge – #615

The sponsor for this challenge is Sweet n Sassy and the theme is Christmas – non traditional colours. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

The cute little mouse snuggled up into the hat was coloured with Chameleon pens and then given a bit of glitz and glam by adding glimmer powder. I cut the image out on my scan n cut and then worked on the background. I took my card blank and stamped in a versamark clear and added pink embossing powder. I then added some more glimmer dust into the winter themed background border stamp.

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

CRAFT challenge – #614

The sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art and the theme is Halloween/autumn/thanksgiving. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of this flower vase with the poisoned petunias. It is coloured with Chameleon pens and the background of the topper was then inked with Weathered wood distress oxide.

This was then mounted onto black card onto a kraft card blank

CRAFT challenge – #613

The sponsor for this challenge is Jan’s Digital Stamps and the theme is anything goes. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of this flower vase and this beautiful sentiment. The sentiment resonates, I think, after all of the lockdowns we have had over the last 18 months or so. Everyone has had their moments, but we have come through it and survived!

I coloured the image with chameleon pens and added some ink around the topper to help frame the image, but wanted to soften the block shape by adding some die cut borders. This was put onto a darker pink mat and all of this is added to a pink and white polka dot 300gsm base card.

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 5th October 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Ike’s Art. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I created my card using the following:

KLM Sunflower cups digital image

A4 white 300gsm base card

Chameleon pens (BR1, WG3, NU1, NU3, YO3, YO2)

Matte gold mats

Blue paper for the background

Tacky glue

The image I chose to use was these lovely cups along with the sentiment about friends. Friends often meet for coffee or tea so this felt like a card I would send to a friend to let them know I was around by writing we should meet for a catch up coffee (even though I don’t drink coffee).

I coloured the cups and tried to give them some texture as if they were stoneware cups. Then I cut out the cups and mounted them onto a blue mat as I felt this was a good contrast colour. Next I added a matte gold mat to both the image mat and the sentiment bringing things together.

As always, I hope that you like the card. It’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.
