RUDOLF CHALLENGE FEBRUARY 2018 ...........DT Z FOLD CARD


Hi, and a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warn welcome to anyone that may just want to view my work.

Today is the start of the
 FEBRUARY 2018 RUDOLF CHALLENGE.
  over at 
Scrappymo's blog HERE
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month till the end of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
One entry per person to the challenge.
There is also a great prize you can win thanks to Maureen's generosity.

So here is my DT card I made for the challenge.


 This is a second angle view of the card.
I don't know about you but this last angle plays tricks with the eyes.
I cut my Z fold shape and then I cut my layers and stamped the background with a lovely stamp that was freebie from the Creative Stamping magazine this I did with Memento Lady Bug Ink by hand as the Misti just isn't right for background stamping I find.
I glittered the bottom half to look like snow.
I then stamped my Reindeer in the same ink with the Misti, and fussy cut them out to prance in the snow.
I stamped the sentiment with the Misti too.
The Merry and Bright die was a gift from Maureen for being one of her DT last year so I cut that out 5 times from Snippets, and glued it together to make it stand out.
The snowflakes die cuts I glittered, and they were part of a prize I won over at
 K and A  blog a short while ago so thank you so much Andrea for my lovely winnings.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

GETTING INKY AGAIN FOR THIS ANNIVERSARY CARD


Hi, and a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that just pops by to look at my work.
I would love you comment if you can, spare the time.

Well I do hope you all had a great weekend.

I have been getting inky again for a couple of challenges.
So I made this card with an Anniversary in mind that is next month.
Been doing a happy dance again as I am pleased with how this turned out again.





This is a 8"x8" size card.
I got my Izink inks out again to play, and make my background by inking my glass mat and mopping up the ink drying with the heat gun between each layer.
I then cut out the trellis corner with the JND Sandwich Box Die.
I also inked up some more paper with my inks to make the rose.
I spritzed them all with Tattered Angels Mica spray to give them a lovely sheen.
I also made my rose leaves out of snippets of paper, and inked those too.
The die cut leaves were also cut from snippets of card, and  mopped up ink, and the mica spray.
Stamped my sentiment on more snippets with the  ink.
The silver bling butterflies on a string were sent to me by my sister.
I used Pink, Purple, and Pearls on my Butterfly Challenge entry.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A CARD MADE FROM WENDY'S SKETCH ON F/BOOK


Hi and a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just chances on here to view my work.

Now Wendy who is our team leader on the MAWTT Challenge sets a sketch challenge on Facebook every week on her craft page so I really wanted to enter this week and more if I get chance.

Here is what I created out of her sketch which I am quite pleased with.  One of those cards you want to do a happy dance after making.



This is the sketch.

 
This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made the background a while back when using Izink inks and this is what I created with mopped up inks.
Today I spritzed it with a Tattered Angels Mica Spray to give it a sheen.
Then I cut out my apertures, and added some Snippets of coloured card from my snippets box.
The JND flowers and leaves were also made from snippets.
The lovely trellis die cuts in the middle of the ovals came from JND's Sandwich box die, and was cut out of the pieces of the apertures.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

CHERRIES AND CUPCAKE BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi, and a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.
Also a big warm welcome to anyone just popping to look at my work.

I do hope your weekend is going well, and you are having nice weather where ever you may live.
It's been sunny, and quite warm today in my part of Kent well at least a lot warmer than it has been.

About a week ago my Daughter wanted a card for her works to give to a colleague, and she wanted it with cherries on, and it was wanted for the next day now she looked for one while we were food shopping, but with no hope of that I said I have just the right paper on a CD, and I'll make you one, and you can pick it up on your way to work tomorrow.
So I made this card in about an hour for her.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers, and the image came from Cupcake Crafting CD Tumble Tizzy Pastime Collections.
This was bought very cheap from Creative Crafting World.
I used my Paper Boutique Doily Die for the doily.
Silver mirri card form Hunkydory.
Just added some glitter to the top of the cupcake icing.

Thank you so much for your precious time, and wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
