Xmas decoration made of wood


Here is my first ever entry in a new challenge blog called What's in the Bickie Tin?

You have to use bling, green and ribbon. In this case my ribbon is green and also sparkly, so all 3 things rolled into one. I also have sequins though.

This is a Kaisercraft wooden word which I have made into a decoration.

I painted it entirely red, then painted the front of it silver. Added some red and white twine, some green sparkly ribbon and some red sequins and beads. Done.

Thanks for looking.

Time for a Christmas challenge

No photo description available.
How cute is this painting with baby emus by Marg Whyte with "Trimming the tree"?
It is this month's inspo at ARTastic.  Criteria is to add stars and ribbons.

Here is what I came up with.  I have red ribbon across the top and on the tag. I've added stars along the ribbon. The base paper is from Kaisercraft's Base Coat Christmas collection. It is perfect for this photo.

Get to it!


A special card incorporating a zipper

This month's challenge pic at Archi-scraps is below. You  must incorporate a zipper in your project.

A special 80th birthday card for a friend. A zipper on my dress broke so I decided to cut the dress up and use it. The catch got stuck at the top so it left an open section which I have filled with flowers.

 This is the sun dress. The zipper was on the side and I have cut a section off.

I chose a bright pink cardstock as the base to match the print.  Then I cut a frame out of black cardstock to hide the edges of the cut out dress.

 You can see where there is a slit where the zipper is open. I placed flowers along it until I was happy with the design.

There was a little gap of pink at the top between the frame and the dress and I've added a die-cut doily where I put the number "80".

I am certain my friend will love this card.  It is rather large, a 6" x 12" card.

Hop over to Archi-scraps and see what the other designers have done and also find out what the prize for this month's winning entry is.
