Snowflakes And Pixies Snippets Playground

My card today covers a couple of challenges firstly the Allsorts Challenge where they are asking for Snowflakes on your cards. Then Pixies Snippets Playground where you must include scraps or snippets on your card  (I stamped and embossed Christmas onto a scrap piece of card) and then finally Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge which is anything goes with the option of sparkle. I used an embossing folder from Sheena Douglas to make this card, coloured the background with blue distress inks and then used silver gilding wax lightly over the top. Mounted it onto some silver mirri card and then a white card blank.

Pixies Snippets Playground

With all of the cutting of papers for my last post, needless to say there was a lot of bits and pieces that have found their way into the scrap box. So it was only natural that I would would reach for them to make something for Pixies Snippets Playground this time around. Everything except the card base has come from leftover Graphic 45 papers from the seasons collection. The sentiment stamp was from a set by Crafters Companion.

Results Of The Graphic 45 Workshop

You may remember me saying recently that I attended a Graphic 45 Workshop held by Clare Charvill (My Creative Spirit) in Kenilworth a couple of weekends ago. Well last weekend I finished the project that I started. We had a choice of projects that we had to pick from before the weekend and I chose to make the Seasons project. When we arrived and were given our projects, they came in a bag and looked like a jigsaw puzzle, it took all of Saturday to put the storage box and albums together. At this stage the storage box had papers on it but the Albums didn't.



Sunday arrived and we started to add the pages to the Album and to decorate them. I concentrated on getting one Album decorated rather than trying to rush and get them all done. Even so I still only got the front and middle pages finished and part of the back page.The rest were finished at home.








So far I've not added any photos to the Albums but I do plan to (maybe over Christmas).

Winter Trees Or Flowers At Stamping Sensations

I was so lucky in October and my card was pick as the winner over on the Stamping Sensations Challenge blog, I won a lovey prize of  a £25.00 Voucher to spend at Stamp Addicts and also asked to be Guest Designer this month. The challenge is Winter Trees or Flowers and my card was made using stamps from Card-io. I stamped everything in black either with first or second generation stamping and then covered with a double sided sticky sheet and then sprinkled with iridescent glitter. I mounted onto some silver mirri card and an 8x8 white card blank. The design team over on the challenge blog have made some amazing cards for your inspiration this month do please pop over and take a look. The prize this month is a lovely bundle of goodies from Stix-2.
