It's Pyjama Party time over at Waltzingmouse today and for once I've been a little more organised and managed to get three out of the four challenges done:
First up is a set of 'Scandi' Tags. Since my only brush with Scandinavia has been at the local Ikea, I'm not too familiar with Scandinavian style - but I guess if it's clean and simple these will fit the bill. I had some happy mail recently from Melinda Spinks - she sent me a very generous pack of goodies which included these gorgeous Doodlebug cork tags.
I partially stamped the Folk Art Medallion and embossed it in red, white and gold - the sentiments are from Ornate Ornaments. I'm also entering them into this week's Casology challenge:
Challenge 2 is 'Wrap it up Warm.' I have no problem admitting I am the laziest wrapper upper on earth. I'll spend hours making the perfect card but chances are your present will be wrapped in the cheapest, most rubbish paper from the local dollar store. So you can appreciate how difficult this was for me. Once again I delved into my new pack of goodies and out popped these cute, kraft pillow boxes. I embossed the background using Heirloom Patterns and used the Picot Panel die for the label. The Camellia was embossed on kraft and coloured in with Copics. Sorry Claire, no plaid or stitching but I think it's got a kind of 'cosy' vibe to it!
I made a shaker card and filled it with a few red and green sequins. It's only my second Christmas card so far - let's just say my Christmas preparations are not going well this year!
Well that's all folks - can't wait to see what everyone else has done! Thanks for popping over,
