Winter Wonderland - Use 2 Ribbons

This weeks challenge have just started over on Winter Wonderland and our theme is 'Use 2 Ribbons'.  We have 2 sponsors for this one.


and 


Here's my DT card.


I used one of the Christmas Create a Card dies by Crafters Companion for this one.  Once I had cut and embossed the die, I left the die in place and use Distress Ink to stencil through it and around it, then added some glitter and gems.  The sentiment is a stamp from Crafty Individuals.




Why not come along and join the challenge and add another card or two to your Christmas card box!

IPLM's #233

The new challenge has just started over on I ♥ ProMarkers where the theme is 'Make your own background papers'.  We have 2 sponsors for this one, Marianne Design  who's price is a surprise and Squigglefly who's prize is a choice of 3 digi images.

Here's my DT card.


The image is from Squigglefly.  I made the background, by stamping butterfly with Versamark, and heating embossing them with clear embossing powder.  I then used Distress Inks to colour the card.  The embossing resists the ink, making it stand out more.


The usual close up.

Wendy from the ILPM's DT did this fold last week and I just had to give it a go..... it's called a Double Dutch fold and really easy to make, a bit different too I thought.  The image is from Sherri Baldy, BP's from Pink Petticoat and the snowflakes were cut with Diesire dies.

Sorry it's a rubbish picture, I always have difficulty taking pics of white cards.  Anyway, the image is from Mo's Digital Pencil Too.  I cut the base of the card with Go Kreate dies.

ILPM's #230

For this weeks challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers the theme is 'Ribbons'.  We have two sponsors for this one, Marianne Design who's prize is either 2 dies, 2 stamps or 1 die and 1 stamp. The other sponsor is Crafty Ribbons who's prize is a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.

Here's my DT card.


This rose is a stamp from Visible Image, which I coloured for last weeks challenge, but I've had terrible sciatica and was unable to sit long enough to finish it.  So I thought why waste it, I can use it for the next challenge, I just had to mat and layer it and make it into a card. 
For the background I stamped randomly with a stamp called 'Field of Sky', but I have no idea who the maker is, I then distressed a little with Dried Marigold Distress ink, and added the ribbon and pearls.


The usual close up.......

Winter Wonderland

The theme for this weeks challenge over on Winter Wonderland is 'Christmas Dinner'.  Well I was sure I had the perfect image for this one, a digi image of Christmas Puddings, but could I find it..... NOOOOOO.  I must've put it on my external drive and not on my computer.  So I had a rummage in my boxes of card kits by Hunky Dory and found this one.  I'm not a lover of card kits, much prefer to make a card from scratch, but they do come in handy..... lol.

Our sponsor this week is Wild Orchid Crafts


with a prize of a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.  Ooooh just think of all the lovely mulberry flowers you can get.......

Here's my DT card.


An easel card for a change.  Everything is from the Hunky Dory kit apart from the ribbon and gems.
