Christmas Bear

Hi everyone, I have been at home sick with the flu for a few days (sniff sniff, cough cough), but have taken the opportunity to put together this card of a Christmas Bear. I snagged this little guy (who's name is Popcorn) from a magazine that I bought recently in the hopes of inspiring some Christmas cards to give away this year. The magazine is Crafters Companion - make christmas cards special issue.

I have followed one of the card recipes in the book, and changed it to suit my own style. The front panel is folded back on one side and I adhered the mat with popcorn decoupage on it to the front so that it would stand up behind the sentiment.  This magazine was awesome, with free papers and a pack of stamps of Popcorn, so I will endeavour to make quite a few more to show you. Hope you like it.

Mojo 166

Here is my submission for the week to Mojo Monday's card challenge.

So far I'm being consistent, which is a good thing.

I have used Kaiser Craft's Christmas paper pack (sorry can't remember the name of the pack), ribbon and some blingy stars.

This card is simple and was very quick to make. Kaiser just makes it too easy.

Shareing my Mojo

Hi to anyone who is reading this,

I have decided to try and be consistent, and to do so, I need to post something each week. What better way to start, than by picking a weekly task that will give me reminders to do them!

I have chosen Mojo Mondays blog - mainly because it gives me till Sunday night to do the project each week, and because it has an awesome amount of people posting to it which I found really inspirational!

Here is my contribution for this week. I have knocked it up out of a pile of scrap fancy home made papers that I picked up at the Reject Shop along with some Stampin Up Smooth Card in Early Espresso and the Fabolous Friend stamp from Stampin Up's Oval All set of stamps.

Check it out for yourself, maybe this is something you'd enjoy doing yourself. You can find Mojo Monday in my list of blogs I'm following below. (I hope)

Thanks for looking!

Card Art Tart's practice post - first one!

I made this card for my good friend's son on his 15th birthday. 

All the items I used were from Kaiser Craft. 
(Paper, Rub-Ons, Mini Letter stickers, brads and Chipboard numbers.)
The stars were cut out from the paper and layered onto cardboard to give them some strength to stand out on dimensional tape.
I really like the torn effect and layering of different papers.

I think he liked it, but who knows with teenage boys!
