R for reindeer

Happy Thursday crafty people!  I hope your week is going well.  I’m getting an overdue haircut today and getting my grey hairs covered up!  Before I head off to be pampered I thought I would share another Christmas card I’ve been working on.

This card is for the following challenges:

This card features a reindeer die from Tonic Studios that I have had for a few years and I love paper piecing it.  I hope you like my card!

Magical dragons

Happy hump day crafty people!  How’s your week going?  I hope all is well and you are finding some creative time in your week.  Today I’m sharing a card which I am entering in the Back to Basics challenge.    This time the prompt is to use paper piecing in a project.

I had a flip through my stamps and decide to use this cute dragon from a MFT set.  Like many crafters I’m sure, I have a lot of corners and scraps of patterned paper so I pulled out a pretty green piece that I could use for the dragon and a spotty piece for a balloon.  Once I had stamped the dragon I added some alcohol ink and then fussy cut him out.

The white panel was part of a gift with Die Cutting Essentials magazine.  I used a blending tool to add some mustard seed distress ink.  I spritzed it with water and blotted it before sticking down the dragon and his balloon.  I mounted the panel on some yellow card to compliment the ink.  To finish it off I heat embossed the sentiment on dark green card stock (another wee left over scrap!) and added a strip of glitter card.

I hope you like this little sunny card and thanks for popping over to the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog.

A joyful card!

Hi crafty people, how was your weekend? We had a lovely relaxed weekend with a little bit of shopping, catching up on a few Outlander episodes and a chilly but bright walk.

Today I am here with a card for a challenge which is new to me.  It’s the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 460 and the current challenge is to make a card using red, green and white.

I pulled out a wreath die which came free with a die cutting essentials magazine a month or two back and I hadn’t had a chance to play with it yet! I cheated slightly and added gold as well as the red, green and white!  I cut the wreath 3 in gold, red and green mirror card and then paper pieced the baubles.  It was a bit fiddly but I was pleased with the effect when it was finished!  The die set also included the bows and the word joy so I cut them from matt card and added the bows with some 3d pads to give a bit of dimension.

I mounted the wreath on a white card panel with the sentiment in the middle and then layered it on a red square before adding to a green square card base.

I think it’s a nice cheerful card with a traditional feel about it.  I hope you like my card and I’d love it if you left me a message in the comments.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog and I hope to see you again soon.
