Good Morning Everyone, Sunday morning and time for another brilliant new challenge over at Magical Crafts Challenge blog. The challenge for the next two weeks is:
Christmas in July
So, let's get started early and don't leave all of the Christmas crafting until last minute, like I normally do. I'm usually still making cards on Christmas Eve, that's really bad and I know it! I'm sure that I'm not alone though.
Remember, Magical Crafts is a multi craft blog so it does not necessarily have to be a card. It could be a scrapbook page, a gift or anything else, as long as you've crafted it. I decided to make a door hanger with this super cute image Penny with Presents by Stampin' Dragon from Stitchy Bear Stamps (who incidentally have a July sale on right now!)
For this challenge we are being sponsored by the lovely Stitchy Bear Stamps and the Magical Crafts design team were lucky enough to have a few of their Christmas images to play with. Why not pop over to their shop and have a browse through their brilliant digi images?
I made a blank door hanger by taking a rectangle of strong card and rounding the corners with a punch. I then covered with the design paper and made a hole with a circular spellbinders die. I used a scallop circle die with a plain circle die to make the border for the handle hole.
Here's what I've used:
Image - Penny with Presents by Stampin'Dragon, Stitchy Bear Stamps, coloured with Pro Markers
Paper and card - all from Die Cuts with a View
Lots of cosmic shimmer glue
Leaf punches - Woodware
Flowers from Stash and card candy dots
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge!
Thanks for stopping by,
