Jolly Holly-days – I Dare You!

Happy Friday crafty friends! How are you all today? I hope everyone has had a good week. I’m here with the new Daring Cardmakers Challenge and although it’s a festive theme you don’t need to make a Christmas project, plus for November and December it doesn’t need to be a card, it could be any crafty project! So this week we would love to see your holly or winter greenery themed projects.

I decided to go with Mistletoe and I kept it simple with a die cut, some traditional red and green card and a bit of tartan because who doesn’t love a bit of tartan, especially at Christmas?! The sentiment is from an old Clearly Besotted stamp set!

I thought this was really cute so I’ve added it as a new listing to my Etsy shop, you can find it here Merry Kissmas Handmade Card.

Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts Blog, I hope to see you again soon!

The challenge is sponsored by Fred She Said who have a beautiful range of digi stamps available.  We are very lucky as design team members as we were gifted an image to work with.  I chose Christmas Rosey which is a super cute set of images complete with a coloured version, sentiment and images.  So without further ado I will share my project….

ChristmasRosey

I printed out the dog image and the sentiment and chose some parcel patterned paper and traditional Christmas colours of cardstock.  I coloured in Rosey with alcohol inks and fussy cut her out.  before deciding on how I wanted to arrange the card.  Once I had played about with the design I put it together and finished off with some gems that I coloured red with an alcohol pens.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I hope you will consider hopping over to the challenge and entering one of your creations.  There are some very beautiful projects from my design team colleagues too.

Penguin Parade!

Happy Monday crafty people!  How was your weekend?  It was a beautiful sunny weekend in my little corner of Scotland and I thoroughly enjoyed the return of summer!  We had a fun trip into town on Saturday night for some comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and I had time to enjoy the garden and got a good crop for dinners this week!  I thought I would share a few non crafty pics before I get into my card for today!

 

Today’s card was inspired by the ABC Christmas Challenge P for Penguin! I pulled out the Penguin Parade stamp from Woodware and stamped it with memento black ink (although it’s a bit grey now!).  I coloured the details with alcohol inks and then fussy cut around the top of the images.  The sentiment came from a Lawn Fawn set called Here we go a waddling!   I used some snowy paper for the background and added some red and green gems for some bling!
