I did do them all in time – honest!

Well you may have been wondering where I have been and why I did not finish the ‘Catch the Bug Christmas Chaos’ challenges. Actually I did get all seven done before the deadline but our internet went down for two days so I could not post them in time. On the bright side I still have four projects to share which will tide me over the Christmas period.

The fourth challenge was a recipe.CreateaCardXmasChaos2015

Materials used:SAM_2500(watermarked)
Bugaboo Stamps – Ornament
Deedee’s Digis – Christmas Cuties  (Deedee is closing the shop at the end of the year and is having a 75% off sale)
acrylic greetings stamp from stash
black archival ink pad
white A5 card blank
snippet of red ribbon
Copic pens
blending card
gold pen

Print out the ornament to the desired size onto blending card. Also print out three sheets of backing paper from the Christmas Cuties set.

Colour in the ornament with the Copics and gold pen and fussy cut it  out  then stamp the sentiment across the middle.

Cut the backing paper into 3 different size mats and layer up on the card front.

Use a shaping tool to emboss the back of the ornament to ‘puff’ it out then stick to the card with foam pads. Tie the ribbon into a bow and attach to the top of the ornament. Finally add two gems.

It was certainly a challenge trying to work out how to incorporate all the elements needed to meet the criteria of the challenge.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
