Christmas in July - Whiff of Joy Challenge


Something completely different for you this week on Whiff of Joy Challenge PAPER PIERCING, wow it is ages since I did any of this but I think I will start using it again I love the effect. The lovely Heidi from Simon Says Stamps is our very generous sponsor this week, thank you Heidi.

Don't forget you can order your lovely Whiff of Joy Fall Kit, with some beautiful stamps by Elizabeth Bell, from 17th July, I cannot wait to see this new collection, especially after seeing the sneak peek on Katharinas Blog.



First of all thank you for the lovely supportive messages I have received from you, how lucky am I to have such caring and sweet blogging buddies, you did cheer me up although I am afraid Mr Mojo has not been kind and has decided to stay away.

This card has not turned out at planned, Once I had stamped the image and started to colour, I found out that C0, C01, C02 Copics had run out, I do so wish you got some warning of when they going to run out. I have re-ordered the refills now so hopefully they will be with me today. Willows dress is therefore darker than I had envisaged, but I think its OK. I have pierced the corners of the image following a stencil, I found in my stash.


Oh I just love my new Fleur de Lis Nestie, I am afraid the original idea of decorating the inside of the card with it is not mine it is something I "borrowed" from my dearest friend Tab, these Nesties are available from Simon Says Stamps with lots of other delicious designs, that web site is like an Aladdins Cave I love visiting it.

Recipe:
Stamp - WEillow from Winter Collection 2008 from Whiff of Joy
Colouring Medium - Copics
Papers - DCVW
Tools - Fleur de Lis Nestie from Simon Says Stamp, Snowflake Die for the Cuttlebug

Whilst I am on here I would like to remind you that we have the fantastic Debby400 as our featured stamper on Just Manolia Technique Challenge this month please go and check out the wonderful tutorial she has done for us on the way she does her awesome 3d cards.

Thanks for looking

Hugs
Jacqui xx
