RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE......JULY 2021 .......DT CAARDS

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

Well it's the 25th of the month yet again, and time for the

Rudolf Days Challenge over at

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

The challenge runs from today till the last day of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.

There is a lovely prize for the winner too.

So here is what I made for my DT this month.

 


These are both 8"x8" in size.

On the both I used up some tags I made about 4 years ago to enter Lolls tag challenge she ran then.

Not sure if it still runs or not.

The first card is a mixed media design with lots of different layers.

The second card I stamped fir branches all over card for a background similar to the tag, and on the inside edges of the card too, and I also stamped the verses on both.

Couldn't find my lovely pearlised embossing powder to make it the same as the tag.

I added some lovely green Holographic card to the tag to match the matt and layer edge.

The Holographic Card is from 

Tonic and they sell some lovely colours in it.

The image on the tag is a Hunkydory one.

The mixed media one I can't rememeber where those images came from on the baubles.

I added Glossy Accents to each bauble.

The MDF Noel is from Anna Marie Designs.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comments you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT........JULY .........COOL IT DOWN

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

Well I can't believe it's the 1st of the month already where has last month gone.

So as it's the 1st of July time for another challenge over at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

The theme this month is 

COOL IT DOWN.

Chosen by the lovely Tinz.

The challenge runs from today to the 30th of the month.

I do so hope you can join us.

I have gone with Ice Cream to cool down as you can see from my card.

 

This is a 6"x6" size card.

No photo of the inside it wouldn't photograph well.

The image is from a 5" little book of sweet treats and a Hunkydory one which cost me just the postage from C&C.

I have cut out the image of the ice cream from another page and decoupaged it, and added stickles and glossy accents to the fruit.

Computer generated sentiment.

 

I do so hope you can pop along to the challenge blog and take a look at the wonderful designs from my team friends.

 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MALE DESIGN BIRTHDAY CARDS

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

My this month is galloping on so fast again.

I can't believe it's the middle of the month already.

Last week my Daughter was on annual leave yet again as last year she couldn't have much holidays as her boss was being sheilded so she had to work.

We had a lovely week together shopping and just spending time together. 

 

Today as this weekend is Father's Day I have a couple of male Birthday cards I made for my stepson and my brother in law.

 




These are both 8"x8" size cards.

The first one is Hunkydory card stock and images.

The second one is also Hunkydory

card stock and the images are from a Hunkydory Book  and glued onto card for stability, and then I used cardboard instaed of foam to give them lift.

They both have the same theme of Beer as that is most mens fave tiple.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE DT CARDS FOR MAY 2021

 

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 

Well it's the 25th of the month yet again and time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.

As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

Maureen always has a lovely prize on offer for the winner, and it gets your Christmas makes started early.

So here is my 2 DT cards I made this month.

 


The first card is a 6"x6" size card.

The second card is a 8"x8" size card.

I used the same Snowflake Die from Penny Black on both cards.

This die was a present from Maureen so thank you, for such a lovely present.

The first one I inked my background with Blurprint Sketch, and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks then on the front I sprayed areosol glue and covered with white glitter which gave that lovely rich blue colour.

On the second card I used the Tonic Glitter card for my snowflakes, and some pearl stars.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
