Snowman Skinny

Made for the My Time to Craft challenge this week, not to mention a Christmas skinny swap I am involved in. For the background here I tried out a technique that I saw on Sue Roddis's blog - run mirror card through an embossing folder and then add colour with StayzOn inks. The large snowflake is part of a pack I bought in USA when I was on holiday there in September. They are supposed to be strung together to made a garland decoration, but I thought they would look better on some of my Christmas cards this year!

Music inchy

Yes, music is the theme this week on the Inchybyinch blog. I've made a very simple one - stamped the music background onto card and then added the gold charm.

Tic Toc Tag

Tag You're It! theme this week is 'Tic Toc' and I think I have almost managed to use only Tim Holtz products on this tag! Materials include Distress Inks applied with a TH blending tool, TH stamps, TH Ideologies sprocket, and one of the new TH masks.

Paris Moo

Paris is the theme this week on Make a Moo or Two blog and here is my effort. I have used some scrapbooking paper for the background which conveniently has a street map of Paris, and added a little stamping and embossing, plus some black lace.

Let it snow

Even though I do NOT like the real cold white stuff, I LOVE snowflake designs on paper, stamps, punches, brads... you name it, I've probably got it! So it was a pleasure to make this card for
Craft Swap Forum's Anything Goes Challenge on the theme of snow. For the background I've used some gorgeous shimmery paper called Snowflake Flurry by The Paper Company; the text stamp is by Stampendous; and the snowflake on the white circle is one of Anita's Dimensions stickers. There are two circles fixed together with a brad, and the top one swings upwards to reveal the greeting underneath.
