Polar Decorations

 Hi guys,

We have our last challenge of the year starting today over at Creative Moments. I am not on the 22nd DT but as always I have made a card to play along with my teamies.

The bears are cross stitched on plastic canvas, cut out and a thread loop added to the top to make a hanging decoration. I then used a frame that came with a cross stitch kit to make an aperture frame to stick the decoration to in order to make a card. Finally I added a sentiment sticker.

Thanks for looking,

Christmas Cheer @ I Love Promarkers

 Good morning,

It'll soon be Christmas! Therefore for our last challenge I have made a Christmas card. As always we are anything goes as long as you use Promarkers, however our optional twist is to add a flower to your creation.

Here is my card

I have used Rory tis the season from Heather Valentin - Colour of Love  who are sponsoring us for this challenge.

I used poinsettia paper from the 12 days of Christmas papermania paper pack to cover the card base. I then matted a panel onto gold mirror card. I matted the image onto gold mirror card and layered the panels together. I then added a foiled sentiment and an Anita's pearl poinsettia.

The promarkers I used to colour the image are:
Warm Grey 3, Grey Squirrel
Walnut, Raw Sienna, Pastel Beige
Canary, Yellow, Pastel Yellow
Pastel Pink, Pale Pink, Fuchsia Pink
Poppy, Cardinal Red
Slate, Lilac
Blue Pearl, Duck Egg, Bluebell
Marine, Emerald, Grass, Mint Green, Apple Cider, Pear Green

Night before Christmas

 We have a new challenge today at Creative Moments, and I have made a Christmas card.

I added a backing paper from a free gift that came with a magazine, to a narrow card base to give a Christmas feel. I then fussy cut the image - which is Mouse sleeping from our sponsor Patties Creations.

I coloured the image with Papermania watercolour brush markers. I then stamped the sentiment onto the side.

Fun folds @ Christmas

 Hi guys,

It is time for our final challenge of 2021 over at MAWTT and Christine wants to see your Fancy Folds.

I had already created this card blank but hadn't used it, so I decided it was about time. It is a Z-fold card that allows the different layers to be seen when the card is closed. I used a 'The Snowman' theme for my card using various different toppers. To the front panel I added the foiled sentiment and a felt bauble.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CountryView - Christmas

ChristmasCraftCreations - Fun Fold

ABCChristmas - Z for ZigZags (shape of card blank)
MMM #162 Cute Christmas
SimonSaysWeds - Christmas

Christmas is coming @ I Love Promarkers

 Hey everyone, 

We have a new challenge started today at I Love Promarkers, with the optional theme of Christmas! Yes it is only just over 3 weeks away now. However, if you don't celebrate Christmas you can always play along with anything goes - the only stipulation is that you must use promarkers (or their varieties) on your creation.

I coloured the image using promarkers - I wanted it to look like a snow scene, so left much of the tree cover white, but looking at the images from other DT members I don't think this was the best option. I die-cut the image into a square and then added onto a Christmas tree base card, using holly ribbon peel-offs on the corners to add some shimmer, Finally I added the peel-off sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

PFP #620 Christmas Critters

TIOT - Winter Wonderland
