Christmas Or Bows

Good Afternoon
My Crafty Friends Followers and Visitors

Well I am back again to let you know that it's that time of the week
again,when a New Challenge is about to start over at 

Our theme this week is :-

Use a Bow and/ or Christmas

Our sponsors  this week are

The Stamping Boutique

Prize 2 Single Image from Their Sore

Di's Digi Stamps

Again I have made two cards and they have been done using images
from  the sponsor  Cute as a Button.

My teamies have created some stunning cards for your inspiration
and we would love you to pop over and take a look and leave
a comment or two.

Right lets get on with it, Here is card No 1. For this I chose the
theme Use A Bow

1. Started with an 8 x8 card and matted it with another white
cart that has been embossed with a dotty background.

2. Next using a X cut die and Hunky-dory card I created the
frame and adhered to the card. Before that I used a  piece
of the left over Hunky-dory card and with a Martha Stewart
punch created the side border.

        3. The image  named   TEA TIME  has been coloured with my 
            Copic pens then fuzzy cut and  using foam pads adhered to the 
frame. The image can be purchased by clicking HERE.

4. The finishing touches are, lace panel alone the bottom,
lace butterfly. I created the bow and added pearl gems
all from my stash.

Onto card No 2 - This one has the theme - Christmas


1. Using a 7 x7 card, I matted it with  Christmas  card stock
again from Hunky-dory and part of the section I cut down
has been used to add the snowflake border across the top.

2. I created the frame form silver mirri card and used an
 oval die from Tattered Lace and adhered it to one side
of the card making sure not to cover the cute reindeer.

3. The image was printed onto super smooth card and again
coloured with Copic. She is called  HOT COCOA
and you can purchase her HERE I then used the second part 
of the Tattered lace die to cut her out. To eliminate the white
background I used Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding
Wax, colour Chic Grey Blue. I then added the snowflakes.

To complete I added the sentiment from my Stash.

Ok my friends I have showed you my creations, now its 
your turn and I cannot wait to see your takes on this

So Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
