This morning I was (hopefully!) up at ridiculous o’clock to travel to an early morning meeting. Although early starts are not unusual, it has been quite a while since I’ve had to rely on trains and endure cold stations! The worst bit is that I also have a late visit to make too, so a long day! I think a little treat from the Christmas market and a festive coffee (I’m on a one woman mission to sample everything on the Costa menu!) is in order don’t you?!
The good news is that there is a new challenge over at My Artistic Adventures Challenges and, as usual, I got carried away making my samples. Today I thought I’d share two very different cards that I made using Heather’s fabulous collage sheets:
The first card is using the Non-Traditional Bingo and Non-Traditional Tree Tags collage sheets. I snapped this sheet up the minute it I saw it last year. I used the spotty panel from the bingo sheet and cut it with a curved die. Next, I cut out the tree from the tree tag sheet and arranged them on the card.
What’s your favourite Christmas greeting? Mine is “Merry Christmas,” but don’t worry if prefer something different, Heather has them all covered, in different colours too, on the tree tags sheet.
Finally, I dusted on a little Tumbled Glass distress ink around the edges of the card.
My second card has more of a shabby chic feel to it. I’ve used Heather’s lovely snowmen (and women!) collage sheet along with the Vintage Christmas Luggage Tags and Vintage Shabby Chic Pink Candy Canes.
I’ve used plenty of glitter, some fabulous pink ribbon and tucked in a doily for good measure! The finishing touch are some little candy cane stickers that came all the way from Simon Says Stamp in the USA (very quickly too, I might add!).
The beauty of this lovely snowmen sheet is there are lots of colour options and you get the reverse of each image so you can put them back to back if you want to make something with dimension.
Thanks for buzzing by.
