Well, we hit the 25th October over the weekend & with the "two months to Christmas" date looming over me, I thought I had better get my act together and get card making !
So as I was home alone, with Much Beloved in Manchester for the footie on Sunday, I was able to spend the afternoon crafting !
I started with my 2 Chloe Poinsettia stamps and stamped them with sparkling white embossing powder onto burgundy card, layering the larger & smaller petal stamps to make up the full flower.
Then I set to creating a few cards - each with a similar colour scheme of burgundy on cream card made with a selection of other stamps, ribbons & buttons etc. - but each with a bit of a different design.
Then as I have mentioned before - whilst I do love all the mixed media inky, painty stuff - sometimes I just have an attack of the cutes !
I saw these découpage Pippenwood Christmas cards & papers & couldn't resist !
I do like a bit of laying up now & then !
Then making them up with the matching papers.
Well, these may not complete what I need to send to the people on my Christmas card list - but it feels good to have made a start !
One last crafty project for the weekend was another page for my Journal 52 - this topic was Magic - so it really was a perfect excuse to get my Lavinia stamps out !
Have a great crafty week !
