I was so busy blog hopping last night, that i left it too late to share these two cards with you!!!
This first one is for Beate Johns weekend sketch callenge #28. I really enjoy trying my hand at these challenges and also looking at all the other cards made by all you talented girls out there! :) I have been reading some of my favourite blogs, only to discover that a few of you have had snow already and are out having fun!!
I was inspired to create a 'snowy' card and this is what i came up with!
The card is a 5 x7 covered with Basic Grey 'Blitzen' papers. The circular focal was made with Donna Downey chipboard from a QVC kit, i painted the outside circle with white acrylic paint and then sprinkled with glitter. The inner circle was covered with more BG paper to which i added a ghost snowflake from Heidi Swapp, also painted with white acrylic and then a snowflake brad to finish. The sentiment is a HOTP acrylic, stamped with Versamark and embossed with white PSX powder.
other supplies used :- DecoArt glamour dust, Ranger paint, ribbon and mini brads from stash.
This card is for the current challenge over at Sketch This Cards. I felt that i wanted to make a masculine card with this sketch, i can't think why really as men are notoriously difficult to make a card for!! but my son Darren has a Birthday early January, so i decided to go with this idea.
For this one i used a 148mm square card covered with papers from the American Crafts Elegant collection.The chipboard flourish is Maya Road and i used some paper from Craftwork Cards to cover it (this was an absolute b.... to cover but worth it all the same!!) I sanded all the edges with my Basic Grey precision file set. The chipboard letter D was inked with Stazon( it was originally green!)
other supplies used :- American Crafts ribbon, Stamps Away and HOTP acrylic for the sentiment and journaling block, chipboard D and yellow card from stash.
