Christmas is Fast Approaching

It is now the beginning of November so I hope everyone has their Christmas cards under way!  While you are creating your Christmas cards, please join us at Crafty Hazelnuts Extra Challenge for November and show us your creations.  Here is some inspiration from me using Bugaboo image Christmas Sunbonnet - Skating:


If you would like to see some more inspiration from my fellow DT members head on over to Crafty Hazelnuts Extra Challenge for November.

I used a paper from one of the new Kaisercraft Christmas paper pads.  I matted with glitter cardstock from a paper pad by American Crafts.  Unfortunately, the store only had one pad left or I would have bought a couple of pads as they are all Christmas colours.  I have added a snowflake embellishment from my stash as well as a large blue pearl and medium sized cream pearls.

I am entering my card into these challenges:

Catch The Bug - Colour Challenge
http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.co.nz/2014/10/color-challenge-at-bugaboo.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad - I think this one is a Kaisercraft one.  I added some black web ribbon that looks very Halloween like!  The image is AKV Witch from Bugaboo Stamps.  I added a Halloween embellishment to the card.

Candy Corn Mummy

We don't have candy corn readily available in New Zealand but thanks to Google Images I was able to find out what colour it was!  I also found a recipe for Candy Corn Fudge which I'm now tempted to make!

Chocolate Coffee and Cards Challenge - Halloween
http://chocolatecoffeecards.blogspot.co.nz/2014/10/challenge-77-halloween.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad (I think it is Rosie's Studio).  The image is JJ Broomstick from Bugaboo Stamps.  I coloured with copic markers E00, YR07, YR04, BV000, B39, 100, Y35.  The sentiment is a ribbon which I mounted on to white card after separating the words.  I added some faux stitching and black glitter domes.


CAS Flowers

I'm hoping that I don't have the same issues linking up as I did last week.  I repeatedly got "Page Not Found" when I tried to link up so when the challenge got to a few hours left, I put a link to my card in the comments section.  However, as the random prize for that challenge says there were 16 entries and mine would have been #17, I'm assuming that mine didn't count.  Better luck this week I hope.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

As per last week, I used the sketch, twist and colours.

Kraft Tag

This was such a sweet image to colour.  I decided to keep the colours to a minimum so as not to overshadow the image.

http://craftingforallseasons.blogspot.co.nz/2014/10/challenge89-tag-it.html

I have used a paper from Rosie's Studio for the background.  The image is from A Day for Daisies and has been coloured with copic markers E53, E51, Y38 plus Distress Marker - Fired Brick.  I used the same Distress Marker to add the faux stitching and to also colour the pearls.  The tag has been cut from a kraft paper pad by DCWV using a Nellie's Multi Frame die.  I added a sentiment using the Distress Marker.

A Heartfelt Thanks

Highlights of glitter and a cute image!

http://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2014/10/challenge-8-heartfelt.html

I have used a paper from Rosie's Studio for this card.  I started off looking for a yellow one but as soon as I saw this one I knew it was purrfect (sorry couldn't resist!).  The image is from Aurora Wings and coloured with copic markers E53, E51. Y000, Y38.  The sentiment is from Melonheadz and I added some Stickles - Gold to the heart.  Die-cutting is with two Spellbinders dies from the same set.  I added some glitter domes which I coloured with copic marker E53 as well as some Stickles to the cat and bird.
