GD CARD FOR THE RUDOLF CHALLENGE......MAY 2017


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
As I mentioned yesterday this month I am GD for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 


The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas. 
There is always a wonderful prize to be won, and it means you get your Christmas cards made early.
So please pop over and take a look at the lovely creations my wonderful other Guest Designers have created.
So here is what I created this time around.



This is a 6.5"x7.5" size tent card.
I started by adding a matt of Silver Rainbow Mirri card.
I then cut out a frame in red card, and embossed it with a Crafters Companion 8"x8" size embossing folder which has lots of Christmas words in different fonts.
I then added die cuts with lovely stars on in white to the inside of the frame.
This die was a cheap purchase from
 E Bay and made in China.
My evening image came from the Internet, and I added some glitter to the snow parts, and created some snow droplets.
Lastly I added some holly leaves and pearls as berries.

Thank you so much for your visit and the wonderful comments you make.
They are sooooo! much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

FIT BIT 8th BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

A couple of weeks ago it was my Great Granddaughter's 8th Birthday, and my Daughter wanted a card to go with her present which was a Fit Bit.
I asked what colour Fit Bit she had bought her and it was purple so this is the card I made her.



I must say my Great Granddaughter Faye loved it, and thought it was brilliant to have a card the same as her present.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made the backing paper from the photo of the Fit Bit, and my 3D Decoupage CD which makes backing paper.
Just added some sequins, and a lovely bow made by Wendy to the card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

FAVE SONG SHABBY CHIC EASEL CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Sorry I haven't been about much this week, but a neighbour had a fall, and as he is carer to his wife I have been helping as much as I can.

So today I did manage to have a play with some crafty items for a couple of challenges.
The Frilly and Funkie Challenge has a theme  sound of music, or maybe a fave song so this one of my DH fave songs as it has a special meaning to him.



I made an easel card , and the base I hope, I made look like a record.
My lovely pin and ribbon flower were made by Wendy our Team leader over at the MAWTT.
The lovely pin has a musical note dangling from it.
So thank you very much Wendy for these wonderful items.
Butterfly came off and old hair clip.
I forgot I have used  quite a few
 snippets for my die cuts so I will join my friends in the snippets playground with this.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends and visitors.

The wedding went well and the sun was shining, but it was a tad windy, and the wind was quite cold.

Gold pearls also.

WEDDING CARD AND BOX


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
 
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments on my last card.
I really appreciate everyone as it goes a long way with my self doubt about what I create.
 
As I mentioned yesterday I am showing my Granddaughter's Wedding Card and Box I made, was quite pleased with how it turned out in the end, mind you it was a pig to photograph because of the pearlised card.
 
 
Now because the above photo made the left side look warped, I photographed this flat for the next one.
 
 
 
 
This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
As stated yesterday I coloured all my peach card which started out ivory with Peach Bellini Ink.
I cut out the frame with Sue Wilson's Noble Pierced Square Die.
I then cut out 8 Tattered Lace Kensington Corner Dies for the lace inserts.
Computer generated Sentiment, and cut out with Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane Damask Frame.
Added some pearls to the corners and round the frame.
The larger roses came from the works, and I coloured them with Peach Bellini Ink.
The smaller roses I have had for a while, and I also coloured those.
The leaves I cut out of 160 gsm paper by hand and coloured them with green inks.
The ivy is a Sheena Die and I coloured those slightly too.
I also coloured the ribbon on  the  sides of the box, and round the box.
Sorry for such long details on my design.
 
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

HEAT EMBOSSED SERVIETTE CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Sorry I have not been around for a few days, but I have been making my Granddaughter's Wedding card.
Was having big troubles with the colour peach she chose for the Bridesmaids Dresses as I do like to incorporate that colour into my finished design.
So I had to colour most of my card with Peach Bellini Ink, and then wait for it to dry before constructing my design as it's pearlised card.
I am quite pleased with how it turned out, and will show it later this week as I know she doesn't know about my blog.

Today I have a card that has been Heat Embossed

  

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The design was a serviette that Mary my dear blogging friend sent me with her candy I won last year.
I started by putting a double sided sticky sheet behind the serviette, and then I put a snippet of card on the reverse of it, so I will join my playground friends in the Snippets Playground with this.
I then  used a Versa Mark clear embossing ink all over the front of  it, and then added Holographic Embossing Powder to it and heat embossed it.
Was quite pleased with how it turned out as this was my first attempt at this type of crafting.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
