      My fourth Christmas gift tag this year

      I've made this tag for Catch the Bug's Anything But a card Monday post.

      Each year I set myself the goal of making all the Christmas gift tags. Maybe this will be the year I will actually reach my goal?

      This is the fourth gift tag I’ve made so far, featuring a snowman from Bugaboo, placed onto a stenciled background using a Memory Box stencil, blue DI and a brush. I also stamped a Christmas greeting and added ribbon and twine.

        Inkspirational, photo challenge

        We have a new challenge for you over at Inkspirational and this time the challenge is to take inspiration from the photo.
        I was inspired by the colors. I used a never before inked flower stamp with kraft colored ink and I sponged the flowers with orange DI. I also used a brush and blue DI fo the backgound. The flower centres got liquid gold pearls and I stamped a greeting using the same ink as for the flowers. I placed the panel onto a DP from Loawn Fawn, I slit a little pocket for the bottom left corner.

        Please come over to the Inkspirational blog to see what the rest of the crew have made.

          Feminine Christmas card

          I made this card with a Hunkydory topper which came free with a magazine a while back.
          The topper being quite large I just added a die cut frame of red glitter card stock, using a Lawn Fawn die.
          I also I added a heat embossed greeting on vellum, three die cut snowflakes with a pearl on each. This was a really quick make.

          Autumn Fox

          I used the image For Fox Sake,  colored with Promarkers. The DP is Kaisercaft, wooden printed, and I had a left over piece of orange corrugated paper in my stash and raffia. The leaves are Lawn Fawn die cuts and I dipped them in a DI and water mix.

          Inkspirational, use vellum

          We have a new challenge for you over at Inkspirational and this time the challenge is to use vellum.

          There are lots of ways to use vellum. I usually use vellum for adding sentiments, but this time I went with a shaker design. To avoid any spots of glue showing I chose to stitch my vellum in place after having added sequins for snow. 
          The reindeer are stamped and I used a half circle snowflake border die and a stitched die to frame in the scene.

          Chrismas card with golden reindeer

          Seeing the sketch over at 52CCT this design idea came to mind.
          I bought this reindeer die from Marianne last weekend, so I die cut one in gold paper and popped it onto a circle and added sequins to mimic the sketch.
          The DPs are from a  Kaiserkraft pad with lovely blue and gold papers.
          The merry die is from Tim Holtz and I used my Dymo again.
          Since there's no staping and coloring involved and I knew what to make this was a ver quick card indeed.

            Spotlight techniqe and Freebie Friday

            Happy Friday! I'm here to show you my card featuring the Freebie Friday -  you can pick it up at no cost in the Bugaboo store.
            I printed the image in large size and hadn't really pre-planned what to do with it. Then came the idea to try the technique spotlight stamping, I’ve never tried it before although it’s not a new one for many of you.
            I just added a sentiment and drew lines around the borders. It was a really quick and easy card and I do like the spotlight effect - I will use this technique again.

            GDT at Fussy&Fancy - Fall Bingo card

            I won a guest designer spot over at Fussy and Fancy Challenge, and this is my card. The challenge is a fall bingo board and I chose the row of  bow cheesecloth, red, string and kraft.

            I started adding lots of layers of red, kraft and brown DP,  a combo of panels and die cut frames. Then I added the image from a DP and tucked cheesecloth and die cut leaves underneath it. I used string to attach the tag with the stamped birthday greeting.
