Seasonal Decorative Masks – Part Two

I hope you enjoyed my card in my last post using the Seasonal Decorative Masks.  Today, I wanted to show you another card using the same masks.  This time I opted for the striped mask. Without any further ado, here is the second card. So this time, instead of sponging a trio of colours onto a taped mask, I have used versamark. Here are the instructions in three easy steps… I taped… Read More »

I do hope you… Read More »

I held my Christmas Crafternoon this weekend and we made several different projects during the afternoon; a mini album, a piece of framed art, a couple of cards (of course!) and an optional gift bag.

Quirky Christmas Twinkle Trees for #GDP049

It’s been a while since I played along with a challenge and when I saw the colour challenge over at the Global Design Project, I thought it would be perfect for a non-traditional quirky Christmas card. Here are the colours we were asked to play with this week. I’m sure you would admin that they wouldn’t be an obvious Christmas card palette, but it was the first thing that sprang to mind… Read More »

Fox Punch Art Christmas Bells!

Yes I know, I mentioned the C’ word! I know we have just passed the longest day of the year but I had a brain wave for Punch Art with the Fox Builder Punch and I just had to make it immediately to see if it worked – and it did! I thought the Fox body with a slight snip would make a good bell shape, so here is my card. and a… Read More »
