ABC Christmas ,, ‘W’ for Winter Sports

Hi all :-) Time is flying by and Christmas will be here in only 6 weeks !! If you haven’t started your cards yet then you are LATE !! Better get inky and join us !! :-)

Our challenge for the next fortnight is ,,,

‘W’ for Winter Sports ,, ice skating, sledding, ski-ing, even ice fishing !!

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher on offer for one lucky entrant

AND the Stamp Fairy are sponsoring too so you could win a choice of 3 digi images too :-)

For my card I used this very cute Penguin Sled stamp from Penny Black. I coloured with Copics and added Polar White flower soft to their hats and Glossy Accents on their beaks. I embossed a the background white card with a Sizzix Dots folder, the snowflake paper is a digi download from Pink Petticoat and I layered everything onto silver stardream card. I used Martha Stewart Icicle and snowflake punches and pounced a Pearl Paint Dabber onto a trip of white card to place under the ribbon ( from the Ribbon Girl) I added a button, twine and a lovely hat charm that was a RAK from America xx I used loads od Star Dust Stickles and a Robins Nest Metallic Dew Drop to finish.

Thanks for looking :-) the DT and the Stamp Fairy DT have all made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see them.

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.

I used this very cute House Mouse Special Delivery stamp. Coloured with copics and the edges inked with Stormy Sky DI, I then added loads of Star Dust stickles for the rain. The papers are Basic Grey from a Boxer pack and I made a poppy look alike flower :-) I coloured white card with Fired Brick DI and used a Spellbinders Spiral Blossom die, wound it around, fixed with blob of glue from a glue gun, added a blob of glossy accents in the middle and sprinkled with black glitter, it looks fab IRL but doesn’t show on the piccy. I used my lovely Heart Swirl die ( love this) and the sentiment was made using my fab new Hero Arts Stamp and Die Cut Floral set. I finished with some red organza ribbon, a BG button and some black American Tag twine.

Thanks for looking :-) America and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
