Bah Humbug Challenge 23

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is 'A child's Christmas' and I spent ages dithering about with some of my CDs trying to make up my mind what to use and actually ended up printing out three different sets of images and papers before deciding to use this invertage from Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit Christmas CD.  I'm sure the others will come in useful at some point and I will put them away safely and probably forget they are there!! Nothing much to say about this really as once the images were printed and cut out and the background papers printed it was just a case of assembling the card so quite an easy one.  The sentiment was made in matching colours using My Craft Studio text facility .

Pepper and Friends

This stamp is one of a small set of Pepper and Friends which caught my eye recently. Background paper, ribbon, flowers and brads are by Papermania.  I also used Nellies dies, Nestabilities and Fiskars border punch.

This stamp from Crafty Individuals is one which I bought a while ago and hadn't used (I think lots of us do that sort of thing).  I had a few pieces of card which I'd coloured when I was splashing around with dye inks on my craft mat and mopping them up with white card so decided to use one of them for this card.  background paper is from Artylicious, bright pink card is Melon Mambo from stampin Up with matching spotted grosgrain ribbon.

Quirky New Home Card

Today's offering is a quirky new home card using items printed from Polkadoodle CD Back to Nature - I really like these houses and trees. The houses and the greetings tag were put into Microsoft Word to change the sizes and to add text to the circle. I've managed to use up some bits and pieces of left over papers from my bit box(es) too which is good and the dragonfly is from a big bag of hand made paper butterflies and dragonflies which I bought ages ago when Lakeland were still doing craft items and I'd completely forgotten about them until I was having a sort out.

Baby Boy

This is the third of the stamps which I got recently from Lili of the Valley.  Background papers are from Stampin Up, sentiment made on the computer and flowers punched from matching paper using a Nellies emboissing punch with a tiny daisy for the centres, leaf using an X-cut embossing punch.

Two of my craft friends (you know who you are) often tempt me into spending money on craft goodies - I'm easily led and I recently succumbed to Penny Black stamps and Cuttlebug dies.  The image has been coloured using Polychromos pencils, cut out with nestability die.  Background paper is from My Minds eye with scraps from by bit box.  The flower was made using one of the new sets of Cuttlebug quilled flower dies (there are three sets at present) and it was really difficult to made a choice but so far I've only bought one set which is the daisy but I really like the chrysanthemum too.

Bah Humbug Challenge 22

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is 'anything goes' giving us a free choice  (decisions, decisions!!) and I have done another card using acetate. This was another idea which came to me after I'd made the card for last week.  I printed an image from My Craft Studio, reversing it first so that the text would be the right way round and then put it onto a piece of white glitter hand made paper.  Part of the image was coloured using copic pens, the background paper is from a Dovecraft pack and I added  a couple of snowflakes made up from an image stamped on vellum and glitter embossed with the addition of some Cuttlebug die cut snowflakes.
