Silver & White Christmas


I enjoyed making the patterned paper for the challenge over at the WaltzingMouse blog.  So when I saw that the Lawnscaping Challenge was to make your own patterned paper I decided to have a go.  I have even used the same sketch.

Here is my card
Supplies:  White and silver card,  Stampendous snowflake stamp, WaltzingMouse label, Alison Ellis silver embossing powder, Renoir Christmas sticker, Nellie Snellen holly punch, Kaiser pearls and ribbon.

I have seen some very organised bloggers who are steadily making Christmas cards.  There will be no last minute rush for them.   So I decided to take a leaf out of their book and make a Christmas card.

I will also enter the following challenges:

Christmas Stampin All Year Long-Make Patterned Paper
Eureka 2: - Anything goes

Falling Leaves

 It's the last challenge for the month over at AnnaBelle Stamps, which means it's a sketch
I think the sketch shouts Christmas but I wanted to try a new die.
Supplies:  Cream, brown and orange card, Hearo Arts sentiment, Spellbinder's die,  Sizzix embossing folder, VersaColor and Tombow

The original idea was to sew the falling trail but then I embossed the wood background, so the sewing was out.  Might have to try it again but next time without the embossing.
