Inkspirational Challenges - Plaid


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is a pattern that we in the UK call check or tartan but my international team-mates have called.......

For my DT card I rounded up my tartan paper scraps and cut them on my Silhouette to form a triangle Christmas tree. Then I stamped the sentiment below it.

Snippety Snowman


Here's another card I made while supposedly sorting things out for my house move!  Everything here was in my bits bag - the sentiment was already stamped, the circle cut and the snowman, a free digi , was printed out, waiting to be coloured and cut out.

Type Right


We'll be moving house in early January, all being well, and so I'm trying to get ahead with Christmas cards, DT projects and upcoming birthdays, before I have to pack everything away.  Got a bit distracted by challenges..

I've had the die-cut typewriter and the circle of text hanging around in my scraps for years! And as I was tidying up I came across it and recalled that Casology have a Type challenge.  So I used an embossing folder to add birthday text , stamped a check background strip and added a pink gem, all onto a pink base.

Inkspirational Challenges - Chair Photo


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is to be inspired by this photo:

For my DT card, I gold embossed a Hero Arts background stamp and die cut it into a shaped card with a gold frame.  I then cut the NOEL on my Silhouette. Monotony warning: expect a few more of these noels to be cropping up on my cards over the coming month, as I cut several out in different sizes!
