Merry Christmouse Snow Globe Card

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you are keeping safe and warm.  If you happened to tune into Create & Craft yesterday you may have seen this card on display on the Time for Tea Designs Show.  It's made using the newly released Carolling Critters stamp set.


The background was made using distress oxide inks blended and then I added water to give the effect of snow.  All my images were stamped and coloured using my Chameleon pens.



I decided to make the scene into a cute snow globe by adding a cut out sentiment to a frame made from die cut circles.

Christmas Mini Gift Box - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

With the change in weather there are so many viruses going around at the moment and my eldest has caught a cold.  His eyes and nose are streaming continuously so I have kept him off school today and hope some rest over the weekend will help his recovery.

The Christmas Countdown is going well with the Daring Caring Cardmakers sharing Christmas bags and boxes this week.  I thought I'd take the opportunity to use a mixture of products I received from the latest Trimcraft ranges - Winter Sparkle and North Star.

I made a pretty little gift box that can fit tea bags in it and I made a belly band to go around it to keep it closed.  Embellishing the box was my favourite part and I used decoupage from the Winter Sparkle pad together with a tag, bow, gems and a sentiment.

You can see lots more inspirational bags and boxes from the rest of the Design Team HERE.  I hope that you will join in as I'd love to see your creations.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Shabneez

Catmas Crackers

Happy Wednesday!

Mid week already and I've been appreciating the ever changing colours of the season this week while walking and on the school run.  

I've come up with a great idea for the Time for Tea Designs Mini Gift Box Die by using it to make crackers!  I have a full step by step photo tutorial on their blog HERE if you're interested.


Of course it made sense to use the Catmas Crackers Stamp & Die set again to decorate it as the sentiment and images were just perfect.  All coloured with my Chameleon pens.



I used a sheet from the Winter Wonderland Paper Pad to cover the core of the cracker and added ribbon to finish.  As ever, you can get 10% off anything in store using my code T4TSHABNEEZ10.

See you again on Friday!

All Dressed Up - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

Am I glad it's Friday!!!  It's been a manic week and I'm very much looking forward to the weekend.  It was very nippy this morning and this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge fits the bill perfectly with an 'All Dressed Up' theme.


I think my image and sentiment work perfectly don't you?  The stamp set is a pre preloved one I bought recently from Neat & Tangled.  I made the background blending distress oxides through a stencil and spattering with water very gently to create the snow effect.


The images were stamped and coloured using my Chameleon pens and then fussy cut.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white on red card.

You can see lots more inspiration for the challenge by my fellow DT members HERE and I hope you'll join in!

Have a lovely weekend and see you again next week!

Catmas Crackers - Time for Tea Designs DT

Happy Wednesday!

I am sharing a cracker of a card today - ha!!!!  It's using products from the new Time for Tea Designs release and I had a lot of fun creating it!


I decided to make a shaker card as in my head I could see lots of sparkles coming out of the cracker when the cats pulled it.  The frame is also cut out of glitter card as you can never have too much sparkle on a Christmas card can you?!



My images were stamped and coloured using my Chameleon pens and then die cut with the co-ordinating dies.  The background is made up of a sheet from the new Winter Wonderland paper pad.

As ever, you can get 10% off all these products and anything else in store using my code T4TSHABNEEZ10.  There are a lot of deals on bundles from the new release.

See you again soon!

Gorgeous Gifts - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

It's almost 10am and it's become so dark all of a sudden and now it's raining.  Not a great start to the day.  No doubt my little one will come back very muddy as he has football today!

In keeping with the Countdown to Christmas, the Daring Cardmakers would like to see gorgeous gifts on your creations today.  I just happened to have the perfect stamp set for the challenge as not only does it contain lots of gifts but the sentiment is on point too!

I had fun colouring in this image using my Chameleon pens to blend similar colours for the presents.  The stamped image was longer but I opted to cut it down with one of my new A6 nesting dies and I think it's worked well.


I stamped and heat embossed all the sentiments in white on black cardstock so they pop on the card.

You can see lots more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team HERE and I hope you'll join in with the challenge!

Have a lovely weekend,

Let It Snow! - Time for Tea DT

Happy Wednesday!

I'm very excited to be showcasing some of the new products from Time for Tea Designs which will be available for purchase from 9am on Friday!

These products are sure to help you make some fabulous winter and/or Christmas themed cards.  For my card today I used the Skating by Penguins stamp set which has adorable images that I coloured with my Chameleon pens and cut out then adhered to the bottom of my card among the Let It Snow Die Set.  I can't stop using that die set as it is a great size in a beautiful font.

The second stamp set I used is the Winter Background set which has 3 different scenic images on it. I have combined all 3 on my card to form a winter scene and used the combined dies to cut them out.  They have been adhered to my card with foam tape giving dimension.

I hope you will keep a look out for more sneak peeks and don't forget you will be able to get 10% off anything in store using my code T4TSHABNEEZ10.

See you again on Friday!
