Rudolph Days Challenge

This is my make for the September Rudolph Day's Challenge




I started with a red card blank and then added a rectangle of green then red card to form layers as shown.  On the red layer I stamped the Tree stamp from the Woodware stamp set I used recently for a set of ATCs.



This holiday card is the third of four cards using this stamp set and scraps from my stash. I also stamped the Tree stamp on a scrap of green and cut out the Tree and triangles to paper piece them onto the red card.






Finally I added some pearls and 'Merry Christmas' - an LC Designs stamp on green and red punched squares.

Stencilled Distress Oxide Background Video - Happy Little Stampers Video #3


Today I have a brand new video tutorial using the
 Happy Little Stampers 'Doodled Flowers' stamp set.

 I wanted to show you how to make a card on which the main features are stamps from this set.
I start by making a background adding Distress Oxides to water colour paper.



In this tutorial I will also show you how to add extra dimension to your Distress Oxide backgrounds using a stencil. In fact I made two cards:





 Thank you for watching!

I also made an ATC - Day 265 of my 'Year of ATCs?' with some of the same elements as in the video card.

A Year of ATCs? - Day 264

This is my Day 264 of 'My Year of ATCs?'!




I take part in the Facebook Pocket Letter Lovin' Round Robin Swappin' Group
Last month the theme was 'Fairground' and I received the following pocket letter:



This month the theme is 'Silhouette' and this is one of my 9 ATCs that I have made for this swap.

I started with a rectangle of black and added my image printed on green - this is a digi I found on my computer and I am not totally sure of its origin but I think it is Dragons Lair.
I then added some butterflies from Stampin Up's Beautiful Wings die.
Finally I added some black gems.


And these are my 9...not all quite the same...
