I do know though that it is time for the girls in the Chistmas Card Club to show our next cards made with the theme that had been chosen by Shaz of 'Baubles/Decorations'.. Sadly Shaz lost her battle with Cancer earlier this year so all our cards are dedicated to her 'The Brightest Bauble' up there in the sky. Hope you like them Shaz.
I really went to town and found 3 digi Bauble stamps in my stash and two sheets of bauble paper and managed to make a total of 7 cards using them all.
The first card is using a digi called 'A Christmas Hug' and is from a Polly Craft Bundle. They were selling off their discontinued lines and you got 100 images for £10. This was from many years ago now when I first started making cards and didn't have many stamps so I thought it was an easy way of getting a quick selection. I have used a lot of them over the ensuing years. I have coloured using my Graph'it marker pens and a silver gel pen. I then die cut her using Spellbinders ' Romantic Rectangle'.
The backing paper was sent to me by a fellow blogger also a long time ago now which she had hand made herself. The sentiment is from a free sheet of sentiments in a craft magazine.
Second card is using a Bugaboo Image 'Christmas Ornament Gal'. Again coloured with my Graph'it pens and a silver gel pen. The tartan paper is a freebie in a magazine by Trimcraft. I have used a Tattered Lace 'Rounded Corner Essential Rectangles' die one of the last items I bought from the NEC Nov 2019 show. I wonder when /if we will ever get to going back to shows again. So much has got to change first before it will be safe to do so.
Third card is using a very old digi image by Digi Stamps 4 Joy and is one of my favourite bauble designs. Coloured in just using two graph'it markers and a gold gel pen. The brown tartan paper is by Paper Addicts 'Lost Forest' mini 4"x4" pad of designs. The sentiment was from the sheet of sentiments already mentioned above. Raised up using strips of odd white card stock left over from projects and layered up using ds tape. The die die used for the frame is Spellbinders A2' Floral Ribbon Threader'.
Fourth and Fifth cards are made with a design paper by Sally Moret and I picked out two green sheets of card that matched the colours in the paper to make the base cards up.
Sixth and Seventh cards are using paper from Paper Craft Special 2017 that came free in a magazine and a sheet of ruby red card stock for the base cards. I have chosen to make slim line cards for these last two.
I have decorated all the insides of the cards using all the oddments of papers up. Nothing went in the bin except the backing paper from the ds tape.
