Posted in Cards, Christmas Craft, Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2016 by craftytrog

It’s Week 10 of the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags Challenge, and here is my version.

I was inspired by Linda’s white polkadot background on kraft card, snowflakes and colours, and basically created my own version, using what I had. I used Wendy Vecchi’s polkadots from Seriously Art, and Tim Holtz’s snowflakes from Winter Sketchbook, stamping them with Color Box Oyster White pigment ink onto kraft card. The Spellbinder’s snowflake and Sizzix flourish were embossed with Stampendous Frantage Shabby White embossing enamel. It’s  very sparkly! The greeting is by Stempelglede.

Here are a couple of Christmas cards, which were inspired by the Funkie Junkie Week 9 Tag. I was inspired by Linda’s colours of red and green, her layout and use of a die-cut for the message.

12 Tags of Christmas – Funkie Junkie Style – Week 8

Posted in Cards, Christmas Craft, Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 22, 2016 by craftytrog

I’ve reached week 8 of The Funkie Junkie Style 12 Tags of Christmas, and here’s my version. This week, I made a Christmas card, which was inspired by Linda’s stencilled background, and her use of die-cuts and a vintage image.

I had some little snowflake die-cuts lurking on my desk, so I found a few more, plus the ’25’ and the tattered doily. Placing the snowflakes on my piece of card, I spritzed over the top with blue raspberry perfect pearls mister. I wish you could see the beautiful shimmer!

I embossed the doily and numbers with Debbi Moore’s silver Metal Magic. The lovely little image is from Crafty Individuals.
