So each day we are getting closer to Christmas and I am nowhere near ready, in fact I have so much shopping still to do I’m not sure I have enough time to do it!!
Today I wanted to share 2 cards that I have made for Christmas, although they are far from the traditional Christmas card! One had to follow the theme for a girl who loves ponies and one was for a skateboarding, guitar playing teenage lad!
Here is the result:
For this one I have used the Home For Christmas Range from Do Crafts. The images are from The Stamping Shack. I have coloured the image using Promarkers. I tried to keep some traditional colour within the image, although it is very subtle as the Greens and Blues are often used for images of boys anyway.
This second card is again made using an image from The Stamping Shack. I have added a snow effect to the grass using White Glitter. The flowers I made using the Tonic punches which are so fantastic when trying to get a flower to match your project.
Both cards have been made as 8″ x 8″ easel cards.
That’s all for today, I had probably best get off to do some Christmas shopping!
Over at the Stamping Shack Blog they are hosting their first challenge and the theme is “Anything Goes”. If you have not been over there it is worth checking out as they are giving the winner a voucher to spend on the website.
Here is the card I have made using the image Snow Puppy.
I have coloured the image using Promarkers and the paper is from Echo Park.
This challenge is on from 15th November until 29th November so why not pop over and take a look.
As it is Wednesday over at The Stamping Shack they have the Stamp of the Week going on and this week it is Cupcake Girl. Between 7th November and 13th November she will be just 99p, so why not pop over and grab yourself a bargain!
Here is a card I have made using the Cupcake Girl image:
Over the next week The Stamping Shack Facebook Page will be featuring lots of projects made using this stamp.
Oh and before I say good bye, The Stamping Shack Blog will be holding it’s first challenge on 15th November if anybody would like to take part.
