Gingerbread Treats

Morning all!
Here's my latest GDT card for the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog!
The theme this week is Gingerbread Treats
The images used by the DT & GDT were kindly supplied by 
Here's my card!

I did plan a totally different card but hey ho, this is how it turned out!
I enjoy seeing where my stash takes me sometimes! lol
I used a scalloped square card base from Craftwork Cards

The papers I have used are from my last years stash & I have
 no idea where they are from I'm sorry!!
I coloured the image with Promarkers then chalked around the outside
 & in the background with Colourbox Q Fluid Chalks Ink Pads 

The ribbon is from Lidl, it's actually meant for gift wrapping but great for crafting too!
The snowflake is cut with a Marianne Creatables Die
That was also from last year & I can't find my dies at the moment!

Here's a side view of my card!
The sentiment is a peel off, for some reason they seem to come 
into their own at this time of year! I also added some buttons from my stash!
I hope you can join in the challenge at 2 Sisters this time!

Stop Press: I have been sorting my craft stuff & have
just now found my snowflake dies! Yay!!!
Ah well there's always next year! lol

Christmas Pudding

Good Morning all! 
I hope you're well & getting there with your Christmas Preparations!
It's Thursday & time for my Just Inklined project!
I was lucky enough to get hold of the 
which has lots of exclusive images, papers scrapbook elements & much more!
Here's the card I made

The image I have used is called Christmas Pudding.
It does exactly as it says on the tin!
Coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers by Letraset the cut out with a nestie
the edges are inked with a Colourbox Cats Eye Chalk Inkpad.
The card base is a 6"x6" using cardstock from Southfield Stationers
The papers are Papermainia from last year & the ribbon was rescued from a card 
I received last year. I matted everything onto some gold paper & card-stock.
I also added some Diamond Sparkles glitter to highlight.

A side view.
I used the Sketch from

Seems A Little Sketchy for my basic layout but I omitted the embellishments.

I decorated the inside of the card too.

#200 at The Crafty Pad is just the one for you! 
We have a Christmas Recipe for you this week!
Here's my card!

The DT were  given images from

our lovely sponsor for this week!
I've been making sooooo many red green & gold
Christmas cards, I decided to go with non traditional colours.

I coloured up the image with Flexmarkers & added some 
I used a Papermania Snowflake embossing folder
 then matted everything on to some silver mirror card.

My three snowflakes were punched with a Woodware punch
 & layered for some added dimension. I then added a pink
self adhesive pearl to the centre of each.
I layered my two ribbons one on top of the other & added
a bow using both. My sentiment is a Christmas Sentiment Ticket
from The Crafty Pad Designs where there is a 25% off sale at the moment.

Here's my card from the side!
Thanks for popping in!
