Six Challenge card

I’ve managed to make a card that covers six whole challenges, which is a first for me and quite good seeing as I’m working more at the moment and I’ve been busy helping get ready Wendy’s Digital Doodling blog, so on to the challenges

Stamp With Fun~a scene

Just Magnolia~ distressing,

Crafty Card Makers~stamping, not done in a while,

Die Cut Dreams~ food or drink,

Roses On Paper~ Christmas,

Crafty Calendar Challenge~ Weather



  I stamped my Christmas images with a  memento ink pad, and coloured my images and scene with Distress Inks , for the sentiment stamp I used a black  Stazon  ink pad which I then added embossing powder over the top and heat embossed, I haven’t done this for ages,I then added glamour dust to the trees, made snowflakes from a cuttlebug die,and used a L-Em branch punch, I distressed the edges of my scene and first backing paper, it’s the first time I’ve done this and it’s very theraputic, (must do loads when I’ve had a hard day at work lol), Tilda is cut out and raised on foam pads,P1010578       Tilda has wine and a heart biscuit in her basket so hopefully that qualifies for the Die Cut Dreams Challenge,and snow is certainly  weather,

Items Used;

Distress Inks,

Magnolia Images,

Cuttlebug Snowflakes Die,

L-Em Branch Punch,

Basic Grey Papers,

Glamour Dust,

Textured Cardstock,

Hope your all enjoying your day, no snow here but plenty of rain and it’s cold too,
