Steampunk

Hello crafty people

I have been working with steampunk today


Cover the card front with black card

Pink background
Import some clip art cogs to the cricut design space
Arrange them on the page in draw and cut a rectangle of a size that will fit on the card front (cricut design space doesn't allow you to draw rectangles, only squares, so weld squares together until it is the right size to get a rectangle and if you know a better way please let me know)

Black background
Take a selection of the cog pictures and change the draw to cut and cut them out of black card
Arrange them on the black side of the card

Corset
I copied the corset picture from one I found online and die cut it

Sentiment
Die cut the ribbon and use the cricut to write Happy Birthday (looking back I should have written first and then die cut, it would have been more central)

Snow-Men, Snow-Globe

Welcome to a very special blog

I am the guest designer for Christmas Card Throwdown!!
very exciting as I have never been guest designer before

The challenge this week is


Whatever does that mean? I hear you say (well it's what I said) so I looked it up and it is what it sounds like.  Take some embellishments and cluster them together
Well this is my take


I die cut some small Christmas images out of glitter card and patterned paper scraps and arranged them until I liked what I had done


The snow globe and snowmen were stamped and coloured, the star background is stencilled (I think if I did it again I would emboss instead)

The snow in the snowglobe is from white/clear glitter glue that I dabbed around randomly.  It doesn't show too well in the photo but it looks really sparkely in person



I didn't start the card with a red and gold colour theme in mind but the first few things I coloured were red and gold and I liked it so I carried on

Have a look at


make your own card and enter it.  It's great fun

Snowflake Shaker Card

Good morning all

Today I have made my first ever shaker card


So I looked up some tutorials on how to and got stuck in
I used silver glitter card for the frame and die cut snowflakes out of card scraps
I put five inside the shaker and arranged the others on the front
The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed
When I made this card I was thinking man card and although it is brighter than what you usually see in a man card challenge I have stuck to manly colours, red, blue, gold and silver and I feel that a man would love it
