I've another twosome for you today and the first is a snippets make and also a CASE. I used Spellbinders Impressabilities 'flowers' to stencil the background with blue ink (doen't really show up in the photo though) and then attached it to a kraft card base. I used my NBUS Memory Box 'breezy waves' die for the branches and hand cut the leaves. For the nesting boxes I used an Xcut hexagon die which I trimmed along two sides, added some strips for the roof and punched a hole before hanging them from the branches with a hand drawn string. Finally I added a sentiment which was a magazine freebie - not sure if it was me or the sentiment but it looks a bit blurred so I think I'll have to do a cover up job before it goes flying off anywhere!
I'm skipping over to see Miss Di and the playmates at Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge as this was made entirely from snippets.....
and I'm also heading over to Time Out challenge as this was a CASE of Jenny's fabulous card below
and finally to AAA Cards challenge CAS game #86 - Diecuts
For my second card I've gone with an adorable Penny Black stamp 'here comes christmas' coloured with my usual Promarkers, chalks for the sky and a dash of Stickles for the snow. I added a Uniko sentiment from the 'most wonderful' stamp set, then matted with some red mirricard and attached to the card blank.
I've made this for the following challenges
Stamping Sensations challenge 'close to nature'
Penny Black and More challenge 'anything goes' my 3rd entry
As You Like It challenge 'favourite stamp brand and why' my 3rd entry
It has to be Penny Black.... who could not fall in love with these little hedgies and they have so many images suitable for any occasion.
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'anything goes christmas with option no patterned paper'
So that's it from me for today. Thanks for popping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
