Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies November Challenge 2022


Here is my inspiration for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge

I started with a green card blank adding a red circle as a bauble.
I then cut the shark on my Cricut.
I printed the words, added some line work and cut them out.
Finally I added the snowflake.

Happy Little Stampers December Stencil Challenge


Today I am sharing a card, based on an idea from Hillbilly Scrappin'.

I used a kraft card base with the front side folded back in half.
I matted the front and inside faces with a paper from Echo Park Gnome for Christmas.
I then added a layer of stencilled paper using fired brick Distress Oxide through a 'Joy for all' stencil and around the edges. 

I added a  gnome from Scrapbookingncraft and embellishments from Echo Park ephemera.

Hope you will join the challenge!

Patterned Paper - December Challenge

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge

Here is my make as part of the Design Team of
 Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge!!

a monthly challenge to encourage crafters to use their patterned paper

I recently picked up a set of Christmas 12 by 12 papers (unbranded) from a craft market.
I used three of these pages to make this set of '12 Days of Christmas' cards.
I started with white, bronze and pale blue card blanks matting them with a rectangle of of one of the two patterned papers.
The third page was the one depicting the 12 Days of Christmas - I cut this into 12 pieces and added vintage photo distress ink around the edges.

Hope this will make you sing...

Hope you will join in with the Patterned Paper challenge!

Happy Crafting!

WOYWW #704


Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #704

Anyway here's my worktable:

I was making a quick card...and then a tag...

Those Noolibird stamps were still sitting on my desk and some of the leaves I made for the journal page I shared last week... 

I just put the things together and ended up with this:

I added some buttons I had made from bookpaper, tied with rafia.

I am hoping that tomorrow I will finally get an email connection to this house - but I am not holding my breath! So far I have had 3 cancelled appointments... I should then be able to upload pictures easier, comment more easily and everything else. Hotspotting from my phone is not efficient!

To finish - a picture of our grandson Ollie, who is now 15 months old. He seemed to like playing with Grandma's handbag!

Anyway, all for now - see you next week...

Happy WOYWW!
