The new challenge on My Time To Craft is Brand Spanking New - to either be an event, new techniques or new products. I needed a few Happy New Year cards. Very simple ones, I stamped a lovely wintery scene and embossed with black sparkly embossing powder, matted onto a card with a peel off sentiment (I must buy a Happy New Year stamp!) and finally adding some silver embellishments to finish.
Half way! I wonder if I will finish these by Christmas! Again I had nothing that Tim used on his 12 Tags of Christmas. Luckily a friend had sent me a Christmas card with a cut out deer on so I used that for this skinny - I hope she won't mind!
The new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog is Hats. For my DT card I used one of my favourite House Mouse Christmas stamps and coloured him in with Copics, and simply matted onto red with a stamped greeting and some adhesive gems to finish.
Here is my interpretation of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas Day 5. I do really like this one and it although I had none of the same things he used I think I managed to match up what I did have quite well! Nearly half way through now lol!!
The new challenge on My Time To Craft is Around the World Tour - choose a country. For my DT work I made an atc and chose France. I used a Crafty Individuals Paris stamp, and inked the background of the atc with Wild Honey (is that what's it's called, my mind has gone blank!) and Tea Dye Distress Inks, and added some Tim Holtz doodads, a charm and metallic nailheads to embellish.
This is the last challenge for this year on Craft Your Days Away, and the theme set by Doreen is Punch It Out - use punches or dies. The challenge is sponsored by Craft Brulee and you could win a $10 voucher to spend in the store if you enter, so pop over to the blog for details.
For my DT card I used a floral image coloured in with Copics, the bp is by DCWV and I punched out the flowers using 2 different flower punches, adding pearl embellishments in the centres.
I have made my version of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas Day 2 - mine is a skinny which I will bind into a book when they are done! Again I didn't have the same things to use but used what was nearest that I already had!
I wanted to join in with Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas again this year, but not make tags! For a change I thought I would make skinnys and then bind them into a book. I am waaaaaay behind - nothing new there! So here is Day 1! I didn't of course have everything Tim uses and won't for probably all of the tags, but here is my interpretation of it above, and Tim's tag below.
The new challenge on My Time To Craft is Reindeer Greetings. For my DT card I used a Penny Black clear stamp coloured with Promarkers and I think the bp is DCWV! Snowflakes as always are punched with my Martha Stewart punch for the bigger ones.
The new theme on Alphabet Challenge Blog is F for Foliage. I used a vintage style Christmas image on my card and bp which is either Papermania or Dovecraft but it is upstairs and I am downstairs and I can't remember which! The snowflake is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I am married with 3 grown up children ,4 grandchildren and 2 dogs! I have always done crafting of some sort, originally knitting, cross stitching and tapestry, then I began paper crafting some years ago and haven't looked back!
I like to take photos of my garden for scrapbooking and the one on here is a sunflower that the birds kindly planted for me!
P.S. - Now I have gone back to doing a lot of knitting, crocheting and sewing too!
