Hiding in My Craft Room #361 - Christmas in July - Super Scraps Saturday


Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!



Here's my make for HIMCR #361 - Christmas in July and Super Scraps Saturday!


The sponsor is MHK Designs

The giveaway is 3 products from MHK Designs Etsy store!

I have made a card using  Sentimental Lily Digital Stamp Set

I started with a scrap of sparkly Christmas paper from my stash, trimmed it to fit a small white square card blank and punched it at the corners.
Next I added the image - printed with the sentiment and trimmed to a smaller square and punched at the corners.
I used markers to add some colour.




This card would probably make a good Wedding card as 'Lily' means marital happiness - but the meaning of the name Susan is also 'Lily' - so I couldn't resist the image!
An unusual Christmas card maybe!


Hope you will enter the Challenge!

Here's my card:

3. The pop out section is made of two sections with circular apertures cut into them. These are also matted with the same DP. These fold into boxes with tabs that stick to the card base.
4. The birdhouse (Craftstash die) is suspended in the middle
5. Part of another silver tree is placed behind the frount circle and another bird added.

Hiding in my Craft Room #360 - Christmas Colours



Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!



Here's my make for HIMCR #360 - Christmas Colours!

The giveaway is...!

I have made a card using  Poinsettia and Holly precoloured

In June I participated in the UK Stampers Network Crafty Retreat (CR2).
(Blog here)
Ina's workshop involved upcycling pictures from old calendars.
I used pictures from an England Calendar - we made a notebook and two cards.





I used the fold in this second card to make today's card.
Starting with a square white card blank, I folded the front back at the halfway make.
I matted the three sides formed with a paper from my stash.
I added images from the Poinsettia and Holly set to these.
Finally I added a folded band across the card decorated with more poinsettia.




Hope you will enter the Challenge!
