Hello there, it’s time for another Always Fun Challenge with a New Year challenge this week!

Don’t you love that silver embossing powder on those fireworks?!

Challenge Me a Christmas Card

I’m thrilled to have been asked by Michelle Lupton to join her in her Challenge Me a Christmas Card series. 

Michelle has asked lots of friends in blogland to challenge her to make a card using, for example, a specific theme, technique or product, etc., and for each of us to also share a card.  Michelle has had some big names from the crafting community joining her this month, so to be asked to take part is an absolute honour!

The theme I chose for Michelle was ‘Trees’.  I love Christmas trees – especially when I get to set ours up and decorate it with Miss K – we have so much fun decorating and watching Christmas movies while we do it. My cards are below and you can click here to see what Michelle created. 

I got a little bit carried away with this challenge and ended up making 4 cards! Firstly I covered a card base with 4 types of green washi tape. Then I used 4 different dies to cut out 4 types of trees.

Well thanks for looking and I hope I’ve inspired you to make some cards with your stash of washi tape!

WWC #252 – Marsha's Special 3 week 'Anything Goes' Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Marsha is our host with a special 3 week anything goes challenge!

I have a BBQ to go to with my work colleagues so decided to make little treat holders as gifts for them. I created the boxes with a tutorial I had seen on YouTube and then used some SU gingham DSP and some Christmas items I had in my stash.

Each one holds 4 Lindt balls.

I had to restrain myself for doing a bit of taste testing whilst making these, as I adore Lindt balls!

Come join in the fun and make any type of card or project. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post.

Sweet Stampin’ Christmas – December – Optional twist – Critters

Well, this month we have another challenge over at Sweet Stampin’ Christmas challenge blog with an optional twist to add critters to your card..

I sponged some clouds into a card panel and popped up my little reindeer that I coloured with my Stampin Blends and added a sentiment from The Ton.

The clouds sort of look like snow drifts.
