It's been a very long time no see, but finally got round to making a card even if it has been a couple of years and can you believe I went and chose to make a Christmas card while we are having all this lovely weather!!!
As you can see I am still using kraft card don't think I will ever get out of that habit, and the not so traditional pastel pink and green colours, love this combo!
I have used CC design dies for the baubles, wording and smaller rectangles, the larger die is a Lil inker design.
I wasn't actually intending on making a card, its been so long now didn't know if I still had it in me lol !
I was looking for something and then started tidying up my desk and thought ooh lets see what we got here, in the basket of new goodies that has been untouched and loved for a very long time - I literally had forgotten about all these lovely bits and pieces I had stashed!!
Hopefully this has kick started me to pick up where I left off......
I am back with yet another fantastic style card from Elizabeth Craft Designs - this one is called Tag Pivot card and is designed by the super talented Karen Burniston who designs the most fabulous dies to make fun and creative cards so easily but with the wow factor!
This card was made for my friend Caz whose birthday was on Tuesday, so just knew I had to make a card with something fun and sweet on -so out came my Elzybells!!!!!
I just love this set, the sheep and chickies are super cute!!
As you can see a lot of fussy cutting was done on this card, I loved making it and it came out just how I wanted it to, not sure the sparkles are picked up that well but they are there!
I am a huge fan of Elzybells but unfortunately they do not trade anymore but I am sure I have pretty much all of the stamps and I can stand up proud and say I was an addict lol x
I also finished off the back of the card, along with a few more chickies they are just so sweet I love em!!
The papers are also a fave of mine and are the Crate paper -Kiss Kiss collection, think I need to stock up on these.
Well today is a special day for me as my lovely talented friend Caz asked me if I would like to join her on this months Karen Burniston Designer Challenge as they were allowed to ask a friend!
Of all the crafty friends Caz could pick she chose 'lil ole me' and that's basically when the drama started and the panic set in -sleepless nights and the self doubt!!!!!!
Only joking ha ha!!!
Caz is a wonderful friend and has a wicked sense of humour, not a day goes by without us having a real old belly laugh. She is also a true crafter through and through right to the core, I reckon if I chopped her in half she would have BORN TO CRAFT in the centre - just like a stick of rock!!
Well the challenge was to make an accordion card, and there are so so many fantastic styles of these fab cards, where on earth would I start..............well that was easy enough, die cut my accordion in KRAFT cardstock !!! (you knew that was coming!)
I am a big big fan of Kraft absolutely love it love it love it love it!!!!!
I was lucky enough to be given the rectangle die to complete the challenge (thank you so much) and I also decided to use the oval accordion together with it.
I decorated my accordion using the cute Elizabeth Craft Dies - Whiskers the Cat, Buster the Dog. and the Katie Star Frame edges and Oval Dot Frame edges.
A lot of bling has been added as every card needs some sparkle, poor old Buster he looks more like Barbara the dog with all that sparkle and bow in his hair - bless him lol !!!
Hope you like my card and if you fancy checking out the others that have contributed to this challenge please check them out at Caz's blog and you will find the links to the others in her sidebar.
Hi, I thought I would share my Christmas makes with you these were so much fun to create!
I do love anything Gingerbread man related I find them so cute!
I used a Sizzix Die for the card base and a CottageCutz Gingerbread man, when you open the card the circle spins and you can then see the sentiment on the other side, love this style of card!
I also made these great candy dispensers using the WRMK gift box punch board and filled them with M and M's. I followed a fab tutorial you really must give this a go. After I had made them I will be honest I didn't want to give them away lol x
The lovely papers were free with a magazine and wish I had bought a couple of magazines as loved the colours and designs.
You just unhook the hatch at the bottom of Gingy's feet and shake your candy out - it is such a clever little box!
Good Morning lovely people if you are still out there!!!!
well me knows you are out there but I doubt you bother visiting lil old moi as it has been very quiet on the creating side!!
Now this is an engagement card for a lovely couple I made a long long time ago and forgot to post, I really enjoyed making it, love the colours together and who wouldn't have fun with the fab Karen Burniston dies, this one in particular is the lorna label I loooooovvveeee it!!!!!!
Aren't those bunnies adorable, love the Mama Elephant designs!
I have been buying lots of craft goodies (as you do) and have stacks of new stash to play with I just need to find where you buy TIME!!!!
If anyone knows please tell me x
Well this is just a pop in post as I have a million and one things to do today and also an appointment - not one of those dreaded appointments one I can't wait for............
I have an appointment with Mr Grey!!!!!
OMG yes !!!!!!!
I also have a surprise birthday party to go to this evening so I hope I'm not too tired later (wink wink)
Hoping all you lovely peeps are well and hope to be back sooner rather than later, till next time....
I'm a keen collector of crafting materials that needs to start using them instead of stroking them!!! So after being an avid blog hopper for some time and seeing all of the wonderful creations in blog land I am finally going to open some packets and ink some stamps!
