It’s Wednesday again – so we have a new challenge over at Fab’n Funky.  The challenge theme is Must Use Ribbon – so you need to have a ribbon on your project.   Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Ribbons with a fab prize of a £10 voucher for their shop.

You can see all the details of this challenge, as well as some some fantastic inspiration from my team mates, on the Fab’n Funky blog.  We hope you will play along with us this week.

I made my card using Octavia Moonfly Wistful from Polkadoodles.

I coloured the digi image with Promarkers and Copics, added glitter to her wings and hat and fussy cut around her.  The trees are die cut from a Polkadoodles die and coloured with Distress Ink and the paper is also from Polkadoodles.  The sentiment is from LOTV and the ribbon is from my stash.

As You Like It Challenge – Favourite Hair Colour Combo.  (I like shades of brown – as I have brown hair and I find it easier to put in different shades.  Copics – E35, E53 and Buttercup Promarker for this card.  If I want the hair to be a little darker I use E37 along with E35 and E53)                                                                                                                                                                            http://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.fr/2017/01/favourite-hair-colour-combo-you-use-and.html

 

Not a Mouse is Stirring

I can’t believe I’ve just made another Christmas card – but the weather might have something to do with it.  It was minus 5 when we opened the shutters this morning and had only reached minus 2 at lunch time…!!  With no pressure to get them made I’m enjoying making Christmas themed cards a lot more.

I used a Di’s Digi image – Not a Mouse is Stirring – on this card and coloured it with Promarkers.  I cut around the image with a circle stitched die and added white frantage to the image and the edges.  The black stars paper is an overlay and the white card was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.  I added a snowflake corner die cut from Memory Box and stars from MB Cosmic stars – both glittered with Detail Sparkle and Glamour Dust.  The sentiment tags are from LOTV and the ribbon and gems are from my stash.

Winnie with Clock

I made this New Year card for a blogging friend – and she’s just mailed to tell me it has finally arrived.  She posted her card to me before I did, and her’s hasn’t got to me yet…!!!

I used a Winnie in Wonderland image from Polkadoodles, coloured it with Promarkers and Copics, and changed the time by placing a circle in the centre of the clock and making 2 new hands.  I die cut around the image with a square stitched die.  The clock paper is from the Winnie Wonderland Download and the blue paper is from my stash.  The ribbon, flowers and pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is from LOTV – I masked the Happy Christmas bit off it.

Oops…!!

I thought I’d had enough of making Christmas cards – and then I got the urge to make one using this new paper.  It’s from a set by Imagine That, which I got with a voucher I was lucky enough to win.  I added Detail Sparkle to some of the snowflakes, cut a stitched circle from the middle and put a piece of snowflake embossed card behind.  The image is one of the Mini Bears from Bugaboo, and I love the way he’s looking surprised to find himself sitting on the ice.  I coloured teddy with Promarkers and Copics, added glitter to his hat and fussy cut around him.  The snowflakes – glittered with Detail Sparkle – are from Joy Crafts dies and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted stamps, embossed with silver embossing powder.

I was just about to publish this when we had a power cut.  This often happens here when we have strong gusting winds – we were cut off for 3 hours yesterday evening, then it came back on – and went off again almost straight away.  I hope those of you with snow aren’t badly affected – we’ve only had a few flurries – so far…!!

Little Mouses Slumber in pink

After making my last card for a baby boy I found out that the baby was a girl – so I used the same image – Little Mouses Slumber from Di’s Digis – and made a pink card this time.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics, and cut around it with a square stitched die.  I backed this onto a larger square stitched die – they were a Christmas present and I’m so pleased with them that I treated myself to the stitched circle pack.  They’re by Presscut and the great thing about them is that they go up to a large size.  I distressed the edges of the papers, which are from Nitwits,  and the sentiment is computer generated.  The corner die is from La La Land, the leaf die is from Memory Box and the flowers are from the Ribbon Girl.
