A christmas challenge at that craft place

Hi there folks, hope you are all doing ok. It's been a tough couple of weeks for me here, as I've had a lot going on... there was a death in the family recently, (my 95 year old grandfather) and the funeral was the day before yesterday. It was a beautiful service, and a higher than expected turnout, which was very touching.

Through it all, I've kept crafting, and having pieces to work on for my design teams has really helped my well-being both physically and mentally!

This card is for the christmas challenge that starts today  over on the that craft place challenge blog , using one of the christmas betty boots images from the that craft place etsy store

I've used a mixture of goodies from the Shop and from my stash to create this card, the base of which is a Sizzix flip its die set from a couple of years ago, that I'm loving to find new uses for. It is such a unique shape that many people haven't really seen before and immediately adds wow factor
 I used silver papers and matching embellishments as the top layers, with a hint of green and red to tie in with the beautiful digital stamp that I used
 I coloured her in Copics , and on the reverse of the flip elements I added some cute little snowflakes and a bow . I also doodled by hand around the paper edges, and did some faux stitching with a white gelly roll pen.

I finished up with some twine , and half pearls in various sizes, and grey /turquoise colour tones

You can find lots of yummy supplies for your cards in the online shop group  HERE
in person at the bricks and mortar shop HERE (based in East Sussex)
find challenges and inspiration on the That Craft place blog
and natter about your current or planned creations in  the natter and chatter group on facebook HERE

Hope you enjoyed this card and happy crafting

and many thanks for reading

I got you flowers!

This gorgeous cutie that I have been playing with is a new image from the Etsy Shop 'Bloobel stamps' Which carries a range of individual and quirky digital stamps for your crafting needs.. it is definitely a shop to keep an eye on, as the owner is busy stocking it as we speak!

She is called 'Venus Von Trap' and for the purposes of this card, I cropped her short

You can purchase this stamp HERE 

To make the card I used a 7" square card blank

cardstock from papermill direct

designer papers from Docrafts purchased from That Craft Place

reccollections brads

copics (also bought from that craft place)

160 gsm super smooth cardstock (yup you guessed it, that craft place again)

ribbon and crochet lace

dies from spellbinders and MFT
flowers and bling are from WOC

I hope you like her!
I guess it's back to christmas cards now for a bit though, now I've had my fun ;)

Hi there everyone, a slightly chilly Rachel here with you today, with some christmassy inspiration in the form of a card made with 'Twinkle Twinkle', an image from Karleigh Sue Digis!

She is such a cutie isn't she, and I so see myself doing this myself, instead of putting the tree up, which is a job I TOTALLY hate!

coloured up using Copics
also using:
cardstock from Papermill Direct
Papers, twine and button from Docrafts
Flower from Samaflora Flowers
flourish die from dienamics by MFT
label die from spellbinders
impress ink in tangerine
7" square card blank

have a good day everyone!
