Hi Susan here.....
I hope you all had a great weekend, and I truly hope that this week will be better than the last.......ours wasn't too good......but it can only get better!!!!!!!!
Today is the start of something very exciting at The Stamping Bazaar, we are starting regular weekly challenges to be held on Mondays, I do hope you can come along and join in the fun with us each week.
For our first challenge we are asking you to work from a fantastic sketch designed by our own Penni Vickers.
Its such a great inspirational sketch and you know me I like my sketches!!!! For full details of our challenge, the prize up for grabs and some great inspiration from our design team call across to The Stamping Bazaar.
For my card I used backing papers from Bearlymine, all edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles. I mat and layered the circled corners onto a deep red card then doilies. The beautiful ribbon has come from our local market, it is gorgeous its like having three ribbons in one with a gold metalic thread running through it.
This has to be the cutest little elf ever, he is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store from today, he is called 'Little Elf with Present'. Go check out the store there are some fantastic cute little images to suit every occasion. I have coloured him in using Pro-Markers, I then cut him out, very easy to do as he has such clean lines, I then mat and layered him onto plain kraft card and again onto a deep red card that I have punched out the sides. All edges have been distressed and glittered.
My flower was hand drawn and cut out of the same red card as I have mat and layered the rest of the card, the edges were distressed with ink and then glittered before joining together, the stamens have been made using flock. The holly leaves have been hand drawn and cut out then inked and glittered.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
