Papertake Weekly ,,, I’m Dreaming Of ,,,,,

Hi all :-) Hope you’re all fit and well and almost ready for Christmas :-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge we have a really nice theme this week ,,

I’m Dreaming of a ,,,,,,,, what colour would you like YOUR Christmas to be ??

We are sponsored by the lovely Katharina from Whiff Of Joy so a lovely prize o offer for one lucky entrant !

My fave colour is blue and I also love silver ( or white gold ,,, hint hint hubby !!! ) :-) Oohh a white gold ring with sapphires ,, and matching pendant and earrings ,,,,, lol ,,, well ,, a girl can dream can’t she !! :-)

I made all the shimmery silver card used for matting by inking white card with Pumice Stone DI and brushing Perfect Pearl over the top.

The image is from an unmounted Fireplace House Mouse set, isn’t he cute munching on a biscuit ,,,, awww :-) Coloured with Copics and I layered the candle and plate for added dimension. I made the background by stamping various snowflakes from a Lawn Fawn set and heat embossing with Hero Arts white EP, I then inked with Stormy Sky DI. I used Martha Stewart Snowflake and Icicle punches and added a Sea Dot to the centre of the snowflake. The lovely silver glitter mesh ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl :-)

Less Is More ,,,,,,,

Hi all :-) did you all have a fab weekend ?? I managed to make a couple more cards and decorate the tree ,,, tomorrow it is making mince pies ,,, busy busy ,,,,,

I made this card for the Less Is More Challenge whose theme is One Layer and Snowflakes, I started by tearing a piece of paper and using it to mask the top and bottom of the card. I then punched a few snowflakes and used these as a mask ,, then sprayed with a blue copic marker using my airbrush. I then stamped a few snowflakes randomly,,,, now this is where it went horribly wrong ,,,, I smudged one !!! HORROR .... sooo as it is a one layer I wasn't allowed to plonk a sentiment over the top of it ,,,, so after a little wondering what shall I do next ,,, I just punched out the offending black blob, added a Hero Arts sentiment and a few gems to finish.

quick n easy and if I need any last minute ones I might just make a few more like this ,,,,,

Thanks for looking ,,,, off to make a cuppa now :-)
