DT: Fab’n’Funky : nature’s inspiration¬†

Hello there!

Another design team contribution to share….

The challenge at Fab’n’Funky is to use nature as inspiration and I made this Christmas card using Lacey Sunshine digital stamp. 

I coloured the image using distress inks as watercolours and added the embossed panel and die cut to add texture. 

Happy crafting!

Tidying up and up cycling

So during one of my brighter days I decided it was time to do a quick tidy up in the spare room aka craft room and came across some panels I had embossed with Sheena Douglass embossing folders.  They were actually part of the packaging for the folders themselves and Sheena had suggested when demoing these on TV that they were perfect for embossing so decided to quickly make some cards using these and the scraps on the table.

The dark green card is a sort of mottled marbled effect and once sanded the sprigs I had embossed jump out ! Chose some paper and the cute holly border along with the Festival of Trees punched tree with white stamping for this one…
… and for the other a different paper and embossed design but otherwise the same idea.

Love how these came out.

Not bad from a bit of waste packaging and some scraps of paper and cardstock!

Happy crafting!

Advent craftiness! Day eleven!

So I missed a day yesterday … I blame the inspection coming to an end! Ha ha ha! Today I barely managed to achieve anything. But I did manage this card before sitting down to watch a film with the hubby!

I apologise for the rubbish photo… My phone camera is stuck in another room and I had no energy to go and get it! Lol!

Anyways I took an embossed and inked panel (from a stash I did ages ago) using the Sheena Douglass embossing folder, and mounted it onto the red cardstock. Next I took a topper from a magazine freebie and mounted that on the same cardstock. I added the scrap of ribbon, and the striped paper from the same freebie kit, and then mounted it into the gatefold card blank. Simple and quite cute but very effective! Well I think so!

Happy crafting!

Advent craftiness! Day nine!

Nine days in! And for me only one more day of horror at work to endure! Whoop! Hope to get a bit of rest for the latter part of this week… Goodness knows I deserve it! Ha ha! Ah well onto the crafting!

So what festive loveliness do I have for you? How about this cheeky cheery Santa?

Isn’t he so cute? I coloured him using Inktense blocks and then fussy cut him out. I mounted him using dimensionals over an embossed and inked panel. I then added some trim with ribbons and twine, and a little sentiment I cut out.

Happy crafting!
