RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE DT..............NOVEMBER 2021

 

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

Well it's the the 25th of the month already, and time for the last

Rudolf Days Challenge of this year over at.

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

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

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.

There is also a prize to be won from the very generous Maureen.

As this is the last challenge for this year I would like to thank Maureen for having me on her design team.

I do so love this challenge as it gets my Christmas cards made early.

So here is what I created this month.

These are both 8"x8" size cards.

I decided to make two different wreath cards.

I cut out a wreath shape with circle dies and covered both of them with ribbon.

The first I used up some lovely wooden stags I have had from the Works for years.

They are actually tree ornaments.

I just popped a gem in the hole where the string for the hanger was.

The second I used some white and grey wooden snowflakes I recently bought from the Works.

The glitter sentiment was a purchase from the Works a couple of years ago.

Then I added some foam snow balls. 

Sorry the picture of the second card look a bit dark it's really quite white, but I couldn't get a decent photo of it.

 

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.

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

I have had another very busy month with wedding cards and boxes, also I attended a family wedding up north last week.

Last month I attended a wedding in Wales also as my nephew got married.

Phew all just before Christmas too so I am late with my family Christmas cards so I must catch up soon, I also have been making an Album for my sister's Birthday in December.

 

Well onto the Rudolf Days Challenge for October as I am not on the DT this month I can enter the challenge over at

SCAPPYMO'S BLOG

It's a special one this month commerating a Lovely Lady

Kath Scholfield of Plain and Simple blog who passed away recently.

Kath was a dear blog friend and will be missed so much in the blog world.

She never missed entering the challenge with her lovely stamped projects, and often paper pieced them also.

Her fave stamp was a Woodware Stamp.

So in honour of that I have used a Woodware Stamp on my card, and paper pieced it. 

 


 This is a 5"x7" size card.

I remember when I used this stamp last time I did it in Black Ink, and Kath commented how it would look nice in Red.

I stamped the image and fussy cut it out and used foam pads to adhere it to the base card which I used some Nuvo Glitter pens with water to scatter some dots all over.

I paper pieced the 25 and the baubles with some plaid paper from the works.

 

Thank you do much for your visit and precious time.

HARRY POTTERS WIZARD HAT

 

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

Two of my Great Granddaughter's loves Harry Potter so after seeing a design on Pintrest made by a Sizzex designer sorry I can't remember his name, I decided to have a go myself.

The only thing is I couldn't find it again when I looked so this is my interpretation of his hat and of course my design card.

As I said there are 2 different ones made for each child.

These are both 8"x8" in size.

As I could not find the tutorial for the hats I had to have a go from a photo of his hat.

I wet some kraft card stock with water and glycerin and attempted to mould the face on the hat.

Made them at seperate times hence the difference.

Card stock used was Tonic.

I made the paper up from a photo and my 3D decoupage CD from ages ago.

I can say they were both delighted with them.

 

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.
