Christmas crafting!

Hi everyone,

Had a lovely Coffee and Card class this morning despite a couple of cancellations but Judy and I soldiered on and made a lovely monochrome Christmas card (pictured above).  Very easy to make.  Here’s how!

MATERIALS:

  1. Night of Navy Cardstock for card base.
  2. Whisper White cardstock for card front
  3. Night of Navy Ink
  4. White ribbon
  5. Extra Whisper White cardstock for sentiment
  6. Piece of computer paper to make your mask.

METHOD:

  1. First of all make a “mask” by using the 2.5″ circle punch in a scrap piece of paper.
  2. On your card front of whisper white cardstock, sponge with Night of Navy ink in circles ensuring you hold your mask down.  Leave a little lighter area in the centre or just off centre.  Make the “moon” as dark or as light as you wish.
  3. Stamp Santa and his sleigh in memento ink across the moon.
  4. Stamp the trees from Winter Woods in Night of Navy
  5. Make a knot with some white ribbon and adhere across base of trees around the card front
  6. Stamp your sentiment on a piece of white scrap paper and punch out.
  7. Optional extra to sponge around the sentiment.
  8. Adhere your sentiment with dimensionals
  9. Glue your card front to your card base

GABLE BOXES

After the class I went to lunch with a lovely dear friend and came home and made some gable boxes.  These make a great gift wrapping idea for Christmas or fill them with some yummy chocolates or lollies or even some beautiful soap to make great stocking fillers.  I sell these for just $2.50 each but if you would like to buy the gable boxes and decorate them yourself they come as a pack of 12 for $14.00 and you can get them in either silver or white.  They are great fun to stamp and decorate with whatever your imagination delivers!

My first shaker card!

Hi all,

Had a fun day in the craft room yesterday creating and crafting in all my glory, that is in between chasing Tilly the dog to stop her from barking at the neighbours!!!

I had been wanting to make a shaker card for a long time now and decided now was the time.  I had all the supplies, I had an idea in mind of what I wanted not sure about this one but it was, as I said my first attempt.  So many things you can do.  Have you ever made a shaker card?  Let me know what you think.  The foam strips are great to use around the shape of the window to create the space you need to hold the sequins inside.  Yes there are silver sequins inside, the picture doesn’t really do it justice.

Note to self:  I really must stop talking to myself and the dog while I’m crafting, Tilly has nothing constructive to say!!! 

These are great ideas for the kid’s birthdays and Christmas etc.

I also got on the Christmas cone wreath bandwagon which was also great fun to make and will hang this in December when I put the Christmas decorations up!
