Crafty Day

I've had a very productive day, tidying up my craft room and finishing off cards. The only thing is it doesn't look any tidier now, but I have about 12 cards that I have completed today. I have even managed to fit in a couple of challenges!!

The first card is for the CCT challenge this week which is to include 'Snowflakes'
I used Bazzil Bling for the base card. The image is Funstamps, glittered and coloured with Sakura gelly roll pens, mounted on ovals cut with George & Basic Shapes cartridge. Snowflakes are cut using Punch Bunch cutter. To continue the snowflake theme I added a sheet of vellum to the inside of the card, which I stamped using white ink and snowflake stamps from Banana Frog.

The BP shown in this picture is from a pack from Dovecraft, last year I think. The snowflakes on the bottom right and top left are again from Punch Bunch punch, double layered and tweaked to give more dimension, attached to the card using brads from stash. Excuse the fingers in the photo but the card wouldn't stay closed!

This is what the card looks like when not held closed. I am really pleased with the way this has turned out.

This card is for the PTW challenge this week which has to be 'snow related.'
The stamp is from Whiff of Joy, coloured with watercolour pencils. Snow effect added to the snowman and the edge of Charlie's hat. BP is this year's Dovecraft paper. Panel on left of the card has been embossed with Swiss Dots folder and accented with white ink pad. Silver ribbon from stash and Xmas banner (bargain from Lakeland) added to complete the card.

Now my mojo has returned with a vengance, normal service should be resumed, so you should see a bit more of me!
Will be looking out for delivery man tomorrow, hoping he has my Stampin Up! goodies....
