12 Cards to Christmas Challenge with Ideal Papercrafts-Week2 challenge 2

For this challenge our card had to be totally made with the colours - white, blue, silver and purple. I usually scan my cards but thought that scanning would dull the silver but photographing has dulled the purple ( can't win can I?)

12 Cards to Christmas at Ideal Papercrafts - week 1

For this card the challenge was to use the traditional colours of red and green with some added sparkle.

12 Cards to Christmas Challenge with Ideal Papercrafts

Each week now at Ideal Papercrafts we will be given two challenges to make Christmas card for six weeks giving us 12 cards ready for giving away this Christmas. I like these challenges as it helps me get started on my cardmaking for Christmas time.
At the end of the 6 weeks for each card I share in the gallery at Ideal Papercrafts I will have an entry in a prize draw which I think has three prizes.

The challenge for this card was to use things from our stash that are not specifically for Christmas. The papers and 3d sticker. I used are by BoBunny and the them was definitely not Christmas. The feather of course is not the normal thing to put on a Christmas card and the epoxy sticker by Creative Imaginations was not from a Christmas set.

Reflections in the River

This scrapbook page is for my Tasmanian Holiday album and was made for a challenge at Scrap of Difference's Cyber crop this weekend. The challenge is the colour one and the colours we had to use are Kraft, Blue and Yellow and the photos to do with WATER as that is the theme for the weekend.

I used my new Ecraft machine to make the flourishes and the lettering.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference

This is a card made for a Cybercrop at Scrap of Difference. The theme for the weekend is "WATER" so on this card we had to have a Wavy border; A - the letter a somewhere; T - two or more circles; E - embossing; R - rubons.
Recently I decided to dabble in some quilling which I used to do about 18 years ago and gave up when I became addicted to rubber stamps. This is my first little bit of quilling now I have bought some new tools and papers.
