Winter Willow and Helpful Friend


The challenge this week on Whiff of Joy Challenge will be the last before Christmas, the new challenge will start on 7th January. The theme is for a last minute Christmas Card but using no RED or GREEN. Katharina from Whiff of Joy has donated the fabulous Lizzie with Muff stamp as a prize for this challenge, thank you so much Katharina. So to be in with a chance to win this fabulous stamp and to see the DT cards just click HERE



I spent the whole of yesterday writing the greetings and envelopes for all my cards, thought I was finished but have found I still have 6 more to make, so this is the first of the 6 only 5 more to go.

Willow wih Lantern has been coloured with Copics, think I have got the hang of them now, really pleased with how this turned out, so if like me you were finding it hard to get the hang of the copics just keep going. The papers are all from the Forever Friends christmas paper pack, The oval frame was cut using the scalloped and plain oval nesties. I have punched three different papers with the MSDP and layered them up under the ribbon, the corners are cut on Cricut, as were the swirls which I have glued and glittered after cutting them. Rest from Stash



Stamping with Stampavie and
Basic Grey Challenge


This weeks theme is vintage on Stamping with Stampavie, My fellow Dt members have produce some beautiful cards for your inspiration so click HERE and take a look



Gone back to my beloved Distress Inks for this one, nothing does vintage better. The edges of all the Basic Grey papers have been distress with Frayed Burlap Inks and I have stamped the swirls on the image with the Stempleglede Small Swirl Stamp. I got the idea for the flowers from the fabulous Camillas blog, thank you Camilla, I get so much inspiration from her lovely blog. I have stamped out a text stamp onto white paper and then punched the flowers with the Large and Medium Retro punches, I have added Brown chalk eyes inks to the edges to give a more distressed look to the flowers. I have just realied I have charms on this card so I can enter it for the Basic Grey Challenge this week, which is "So Charming", thats good 2 for 1.
