Christmas Decorations at Hobbycutz

Hello, Everyone

We have a Brand New Challenge over on the Hobbycutz Challenge blog, and the challenge running for the next week is to make a Christmas Decoration, now this can be anything from a tree decoration, a wall hanging or a table decoration.

So hope you will all come and join us and show us what you've made.
For this week we have the lovely lady Nikki from Limited Run Stamps as our Sponsor.
So for my challenge I have made a set of two Christmas Baubles for the little ones to hang on the tree.
I bought two digi stamps from Mo Manning as I just love the little elves and thought they will go well with what I had in mind.

Sorry the photo's is not that good as I the light was a bit of a struggle.

I am quite happy with how these turned out, and the kids love them too.

I will be entering them into the following challenges -

Thank you for everyone, that stopped by.

Been a while...

Hi All my lovely Followers...
Thank you for sticking around I know it's been a while.
I have been crazy busy as you all know, and if you don't here's what I have been keeping busy with.

I have actually made a card for the first times in months today, and it's for the new challenge that started on my challenge blog -
So please hop over and come and have a look.
We have a Brand New Challenge set every Sunday, with lovely inspirational projects from the Design Team.
And no, you don't only have to make a card you are welcome to submit any other projects as long as it fit the challenge set for that week.
So for this week running our Challenge theme is Steampunk.
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Sassy Studio's and we have received some gorgeous images to work with.

So here's my project, I used the Sketch.

So for my card I have used Steampunk Josephine.
I coloured the image using my promarkers and then gave it a bit of a shadow and cut along the lines.
The background papers is a 12x12 sheet I actually got from my Mum's shop while on holiday in South Africa, I have had it for a while, but just knew it will work a treat with this image.
The borders along the edges and the circle doily was cut using my Grand Calibur and some Spellbinders dies.
The Swirls and the gears was from my shop.

I am happy with how it turned out, as it has been a few months since I have actually made a card and I think you kinda lose touch, or maybe not...

Please visit the Challenge blog as there is so much more projects from other DT members to inspire you.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Delicious Cinnamon Sugar...

Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Monday Everyone, and Hope all of you have a lovely week ahead...
Well, here on my end I am quite glad the snow is melting and my stuck at home days has come to an end, which I am sure my daughter will be glad, because now she can go back to nursery....

So I have a new card I want to show you all today...I made it after I saw the Whimsy Guest Designer call, and thought I would like to participate as it has been ages since Designing for any Design Teams....but I might change my mind....

But here is my card anyway:

My Recipe:

I used Cinnamon Sugar from Whimsy Stamps...I bought this stamp probably over 6 months ago and never had time to ink her glad I have now, as it was really enjoyable to color her in.

My backing paper is from a 6x6 paper stash - Tea party from Dovecraft, the second layerd paper was just a light pink piece of scrap which i stamped the scripture over with a stamp I have had for ages, then I just distressed the sides a bit and inked it with tattered rose distress ink.

The oval fancy frame is a sizzix die and the Fancy white swirl is a personal Lasercut design☺, which will be in available in my new store once opened....
The Butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the ribbon and flowers is just some Old stash....

I coloured this little sweetie using my Promarkers and my favourite colours.

Top Tip:
The swirl I have cut is from MDF.
If you do not want your Lasercut to be the natural colour, simply use some distress ink, or any ink pad, tap it onto the swirl and soon it will change into the colour you want, you might need to do this several times for a more vibrant colour as the MDF does absorb some of the ink, or you can use simply use some embossing powder like I have done on this one, heat it with your heat gun and you have a beautiful coloured swirl in the colour you want....

Well I really hope you have seen something you like....

Please pop over to my New Store blog and Enter my huge Opening candy giveaway

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday - Lots of Layers
