Christmas card competition … me versus the hubby

The hubby challenged me to a card competition using similar stash and we had to come up with our own designs.  My parents are the judges and they had to work out whose was whose and which was best.

So here are the two entries…

Card one…

Card two…

I have say I am very worried that his talent might be a tad too good for a beginner!

So can you guess whose is whose? And whose is the better card?

Results from the parents (and an additional third judge of my auntie) were that they guessed and chose in my favour! But accolades given to the hubby for his first card making effort ad being superb. Plus he is claiming a win as the princess had to ask whose is whose when she first saw them. Obviously I still won really… but then again as it’s christmas I might not rub it in too much!

Happy crafting!

Catherine and Vin too!

Commissioned card batch number two

Three slightly different cards this time of the batch I made for my friend…

1…

I borrowed some stamps and dies from my friend Helen… and used some paper I got from Hobbycraft and added the sentiment die cut from gold foil cardstock… lovely.

2….

Slightly altered the positioning on all three cards to make them different but otherwise the same ingredients for all of them.

Sorry about the slightly naff photos.

See you tomorrow to see more cards made for my friend.

Happy crafting!

UIUS take two

Yes i know its halloween but my post is all about Christmas… might post pics of the pumpkins tomorrow.

As promised another UIUS post all about the cards I made last week at the crop Helen organised.

These four were all using the bits and pieces I had to hand…

Some punched baubles and trees, all of which I ran through an embossing folder with a snowflake design to make them a bit different.  The tree cards I added the die cut Christmas greeting words to them that I had inked in Cherry Cobbler. I then added some glossy accents to finish them off.  This gives a lovely finish to the words.

For the bauble cards I stamped and inked a sentiment from a magazine gift which I picked up a couple of weeks ago.

Doing  UIUS set for a crop was such an easy project to work on without too much thought … meant I could chat away with friends but still be productive.
Happy crafting!
