Happy New Year!
Over at the ABC Christmas Challenge, we're starting our tenth (!) trip through the alphabet...I'm the host, and the themes for this month are:
'A is for Anything Christmas Goes'
'B is for Berries'
This yer, we're changing things up a little, and have gone sponsor free...so I've donated a couple of little prizes for this challenge:
I had some new Christmas crafting goodies to play with, so made a card for each of the two themes. On my first card, I used stamps from the 'Let it Snow' set by Happy Little Stampers (which I won recently on one of their challenges). I stamped the largest snowflake from the set using Versamark Ink on navy card, then heat embossed it with 'Sparkling Snow' embossing glitter by WOW. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set on to my card blank, and heat embossed it using the same powder, then used more of it to make a matching mat for my snowflake image. It's so sparkly in real life, but impossible to capture in a photograph!
I used a die I received for Christmas on my second card...'Candy Canes & Holly' by Sweet Dixie. I cut the image three times, from red, white and green card, then carefully pieced them together. I embossed a piece of kraft card fro the background using my 'Jolly Christmas' folder by Couture Creations, matted it on to a piece of red card, then added the candy canes on top. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts.
I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:
