Amiche di Scrap, Rubber Dance Stamps & The Scrap Sisters Cards:

Yup, been on a card creating craze since I got home from holidays!  In reverse alphabetical order [why not??!!] is:
 défi carte
So, basically you needed to do a card using PAPER WEAVING, doilies, butterflies [at least one], twine/string & a banner/flags...plus the colours! Here is mine:

 I've used the paper weaving in the background, then layered up my elements.....this was FUN!!

The challenge is to do a Christmas card & to use red!
 I created this red bg using Goose Bumps with ink spray....
 dived into my Chrissy box to find red...plus some gold!!! And came up with this:

The little tree button comes all the way from San Diego - Mum brought it home from her recent USA holiday.Cute, huh? I added some red paint to it:)
I love what the DT do over here! Gorgeous stamps, too.....& following the Chrissy theme also this month:
Red, green & gold....you can also use a stencil, but that is optional. I am really happy with this card, as I have used a stamp to MULTI LAYER heat emboss the wreath. So, a layer of gold, then the sparkly red, then a flat black stamping of black Archival ink.
 Also, I won a challenge over at The Scrap Sisters & got a lovely collection of wood bits, sent from Marie-Christine...the tree was perfect, fussed up with some Gelatos:)
With so much work on the wreath,  I kept the rest of the card simple....just some gold embossing & edging & a stamped greeting:)
So, another few cards done! YAY!!!!!
Thanks for looking & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  15. You've got pretty much all my favourite paper-y things on that first card. I can't help but love it!

  16. FAB-U-LOUS!!! Okay so no surprises that number two is my fave as it has that scrummy little vellum star and staples (who doesn't love a staple??) BUT I am totally in LOVE with the triple embossing malarkey! That is one heck of a winner, Christmas or otherwise!! Got to give that a try with my one or two pots of embossing powder ;) However it will not be on a Christmas card....no siree Bob!! Festive mojo is away with the fairies at present!!
