Season's Greetings

Another club project.
This one uses a die by Chloe Endean, cut three times on different card-stocks and then the leaves snipped off on two of them and attached to the third.

I'm not sure I like the colours used, I think silver and blue might have been less Autumnal?

My card-making has gone out of the window lately because of this little chap.
We've had him for two weeks now and normal life has been completely turned upside down, I feel like an extra pair of eyes and hands would be very handy at the moment.

He's eleven weeks old today, just been on his first proper walk outside (on the beach no less), and we've had plenty of complete strangers cooing over him!
Even the vet, who must be looking at dogs all day, took a shine to him this morning and we had two ladies literally run across the car park to come and say hello. Can you tell I am a proud puppy mama?

Magic and Sparkle

Project for card club.
We used a Chloe stamp and coloured it with Colour Cloud inks. The trees have been decoupaged and Glamour Dust-ed, and a score board was used to create diagonal lines on the background mat.

Card is 7 x 7 inches and we used a Misti tool for the stamp as it's quite large - much easier than an acrylic block.

Merry and Bright

Colour are out of whack on this one, in reality the poinsettia is a much deeper red.

I made the card blank, two from a sheet of A4, and then trimmed about an inch off the front layer on the right-hand side
A strip of gold mirri card was then added to the underneath layer.

All stamps used are Altenew, I've added a little gold gilding flake to the centre of the poinsettia.

The card is quite flat so will be used for my 'need to post several' Christmas card design this year.

Anniversary stamp is by Chloe Endean
Flower from The Range, leaf is an old punch (Woodware?)

I've used Colour Cloud ink to colour pearlised white card and also for infilling the sentiment.

Sue Wilson

More or less a complete copy of a Sue Wilson design (hers is a bit more layered and fancy), all products...Sue Wilson.

I bought this Woodware snowmen stamp with the intention of making acetate cards at card club.
It's quite a long stamp so I thought C5 landscape would be perfect. I sat making the card and then when it was finished ...realised it wouldn't stand up as the acetate wasn't quite thick enough.

Plan B - make the card portrait instead, using part of the stamp instead of the full image.

Eventually I managed to get the original card to stand by adding a couple of strips of card along the bottom edge. I do prefer this version but it was nearly thrown out of the window at one point!
