Christmas Craft Creations



This month over at the Christmas Craft Creations challenge we are looking for cards with a musical theme, Christmas Music to be precise.

I had this cute little MFT Santa coloured up on Canson XL paper, using ZiG Real Colour brush markers, and added it to this bold black and white paper.    Clean and simple but with a punch of colour.



What will you share with us this month over on the challenge blog?

Shaped Card with Christmas Craft Creations


Don't you just love it when a challenge makes you go back to some old techniques you had once forgotten.
I folded a card base and used a circle die to create a circle card base.  You just have to make sure that the fold of the card isnt cut by the die.  I then used some Canson XL watercolour card and Gansai paint to create the background.    The rest of the elements were from my stash, I added them to create a little scene and wallah.     It reminded me that its always great to have some bits and pieces on hand to create when you are time poor or lacking some mojo.  These little reindeers are such a cute little image to have on hand, I have a batch of them coloured up in my craft room, usually they land on tags.

How is everyone enjoying the challenges with the Song and Rhyme themes to inspire your project.  I have to say that I am loving the hints and prompts that the challenges bring.

The challenge runs from September 6th to September 19th  and we are happily sponsored by Bugaboo for the whole month, with a gift voucher up for grabs for the lucky winner.


Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

Cats sleep, anywhere,

Any table, any chair
Top of piano, window-ledge,
In the middle, on the edge,
Open drawer, empty shoe,
Anybody's lap will do,
Fitted in a cardboard box,
In the cupboard, with your frocks-
Anywhere! They don't care!
Cats sleep anywhere.

Winter Wonderland - Bugaboo

Welcome to another Winter Wonderland Challenge post, we were kindly sponsored by Bugaboo and if you pop into each DT’s blog you will be inspired by the creations they have made.   I chose to use the Bugaboo Snowman Block


I have always liked the Bugaboo block designs, as they allow you to cut them into pieces or leave them in one piece dependant on your need.  I wanted to use the blocks in an interesting layout and searched Card Sketches and found a few ideas to work with.   



Its now your turn to play, head on over to the Challenge Blog and link up your creations.
