A Christmas Card using non-traditional colours

Ho ho ho. Just like that it is December.

Have you decided to make some Christmas cards? This is the first one that I made this year.

The challenge at Unstampabelles for December 2017 is to do some zentangling. This can be as hard or as easy as you like. It's a lot of fun, give it a go.  Plus the twist is to make it Christmas, but non-traditional colours.

I've made my first Christmas card of the season.

I've used a stencil of a Christmas tree and some metallic pens to do the outlining and zentagling.



I've added a sticker sentiment mounted on to some really pretty silver sparkly cardstock. So the colours I've used of purple, silver and aqua make for really non-traditional Christmas colours. Had to make the star on top gold of course.

I look forward to seeing what you make.

Happy crafting,

Here we have a card I made today for this month's challenge at Archiscraps.


This is the inspo photo and you need to use knots.  I have two.  They always find such quirky insp pics.

Above is the challenge at Unstampabelles this month. I'm usually fairly decisive in general. I'm a Libran and quite balanced. It's my birthday month. Yay. In fact my birthday is on Saturday and I'm having a big party. Looking forward to it.

I've created a layout using the line ribbon, buttons and flowers.



The photo is of my pussycat lying on top of the clothes I have laid out ready to pack. She also loves to lay on top of our suitcases when we get them out.

Thanks for looking and I hope you decide to join in.

A card for Dad




I've made this masculine card for my DT submission in the September Unstampabelles challenge.

You need to use one or more sets of 3 and add cardboard as the twist, all without using stamps.

I've added 3 papers and 3 chipboard button embellishments.

If you're wondering what the red netting is, it is part of the packaging from a bunch of oranges. Adds great texture don't you think?

See how simple this month's challenge is?  You should enter. Here is what you could win.
