Blue & silver

I like that reindeer stamp so much I decided to make another card with it. Used some pale blue backing paper from my stash, layered up with some darker blue card which I punched with a snowflake punch. Stamped my lovely reindeer onto the dark blue card with some silver versa mark ink. Layered this up with the pale blue, dark blue & a strip of silver punched with the snowflake stamp. Stamped a tag & sentiment onto dark blue card, layered this onto silver. Added some silver glitter to the reindeer's nose & dotted some glitter around to sort of look like snow.  Finally made some silver origami Christmas trees. I found how to do these lovely trees over on Jules' blog - she has a lovely blog, go and take a peek. Was pleased with the result, hope you like it.

Alphabet Challenge Blog

D is for doodles. For my DT project I decided that rather than doing a little doodling I would make doodling the main feature of my card. I drew an initial shape then came back to it at various times to add bits. I coloured in using ProMarkers. I added some stickles glitter to some parts of the design. Backed with some black card cut to match the shape & mounted onto the backing paper. Hope you like it though it is a little different.
Hope you can come over & join us on the Alphabet Challenge this week.

Alphabet Challenge Blog

B is for bird & C is for cat. Not posted for a while as Dad has been back in hospital yet again for another operation. He is back home now & getting along ok for now. So here are my last 2 DT projects for the Alphabet Challenge Blog. The card was made using some freebie stamps from Papercraft Inspirations. Coloured in using water colours & glitter. Stamped some snowflakes in silver. Mounted the birds onto some red backing paper which I tore to make the edge interesting,  stamped the sentiment in silver ontosome more red torn backing paper.
C is for cat - didn't have much time this week with Dad coming out of hospital so made a quick tag using another freebie stamp. Stamped onto black card using white ink, stamped the good luck onto white card, mounted this onto black card. Finished off with some faux stitching & silver thread.
I hope I might have a little more time this week now everything has settled down a little - could do with some 'crafty time'.
