The next card is for Brenda's challenge - this is a new challenge that she's just started. So I thought I'd have a go - it's a nice simple sketch and I need some inspiration. I kept this one really simple. I had a really bold and bright piece of ribbon in my stash, so I found some red card which I ran through my Cuttlebug, used the snowflakes folder and then punched out a Christmas Bauble using the Stampin' Up! punch. This is such a useful punch - and I love it!! I added some silver ribbon to the bauble. The frame and greeting were stamped before I stuck down the bauble. So here's my card (apologies for the slight blur in the picture - the card was scanned).
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Frame It
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug snowflakes folder; Stampin' Up! - Bauble punch; Ribbon - from stash
Finally, I've been really quick off the mark with a card for Mona's CR84FN7 challenge. She only posted this challenge today!! I'm back to my favourite stamps - Nutcracker Sweet!! That Prince is on lots of my cards - but it's such a fun stamp. Brown is not a colour I use much (never really liked it too much), but with coral and tan - it works!! Who knew?? I made a gatefold card for a change and used mulberry paper and glitter paper for the gatefolds. The card is held together with the ribbon.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Nutcracker Sweet, Teeny Trees
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa; Distress - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Spellbinders: Mega Ovals - both plain and scalloped
Accessories: Ribbon from stash; Glitter paper and mulberry paper from stash
I think that's probably all I'm going to post today. In between cards, I've managed to get several loads of washing done, but I still need to do a bit of housework and get dinner ready for us all.
I'll be back again tomorrow - do come by again. Be safe!
