First off I have my card for this month's Sir Stampalot challenge and for this month's Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge...both have a similar theme....
Can you guess the theme?
Penny Black at Allsorts - its beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Sir Stampalot - Christmas traditions
I thought this fab Penny Black stamp would be brilliant for both challenges....it always makes me laugh....can you just imagine santa bringing all his presents riding on a cow!? I've used bright red and green backing papers, and a super cute Papermania backing paper featuring lots of Christmas pressies.
My second card is for the Allsorts challenge this week, where their theme is gold and cream with a hint of red:
Now, although I didn't use a Christmas sentiment on this card, I think it would be perfect for Christmas or a Birthday or a "just because" card. I love this Kanban stamp and have used it a lot already - it seems to appeal to everyone. I've used a combination of cream and gold backing papers, along with some cream ribbon. I stamped the tree in black ink and then added some gold and red glitter glue. Finally the sentiment is gold.
Right...I actually started writing this post about an hour and a half ago...this proves just how easy it is to distract me! Since I started the post I've eaten dinner, called my boyfriend and made some yummy raspberry cupcakes that are currently in the oven!
I'm off to make my Rudolphs now before I get distracted again....although those cakes will need icing at some point! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
