Day 19 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 19’s inspiration is Day 13, 2011. I LOVED that red background and used the Birch Press Design Frosty Flake layering set for my take.

Day 17 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 17’s inspiration is Day 7, 2018. Back then, I lamented that I couldn’t find a UK stockist for Birch Press Designs, but now we have the fabulous Bumbleberry Crafts and I have a lot of Birch Press Designs die sets! Yay!

I loved Eloise’s colour combo for her tags using the Radiant Ornament layering set so I decided to put my own spin on it for my tag!

Another double challenge

Hi everyone!

For my second card of the day, I’m playing along with the ‘double’ challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. This challenge combines colours AND a sketch… and can be quite tricky… but hey, that’s why they are called challenges, isn’t it?

For my card, I used the beautiful Birch Press Eloquent Butterfly layering die set, a couple of Memory Box daisies, together with a sentiment from Memory Box.

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 29

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 29 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought of my Horizontal Stripes die from My Favorite Things. Although I have HUGE PROBLEMS using this die, I knew it would be perfect for the sketch. How can such a simple die cause me so many problems, you may wonder! Well, the card buckles in my Gemini and the stripes seem to stretch as I can’t get them to lie flat. In the end, I used an old die cutting machine – the cut isn’t as clean but the card doesn’t buckle.

Anyway, enough of my moaning and onto my card! I blended various green distress inks on a card base and adhered a panel cut with the Stripes die on top. Next I assembled the gorgeous Birch Press Radiant ornament and adhered it to my card base, I added my favourite Sizzix bow and a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 5

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 5 of Christmas in July 2021!

Today I’m playing along with the Double challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. I have to say it was a challenge to incorporate the colour palette into a Christmas card, but I actually enjoyed making this non-traditional Christmas card with the beautiful Twinkling Ornament layering die set.

I added a die cut bow from a Sizzix set and a sentiment by Mama Elephant.

Butterfly cookie inspiration

Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m using some brand new Birch Press Design dies that landed on my door mat yesterday. Look at that beautiful Eloquent Butterfly layering die! Isn’t it fabulous? I already have a layering butterfly die but I couldn’t resist adding another one to my collection!

I used the inspiration photo from the June If you give a crafter a cookie challenge. I loved the colour combo and designs! I paired the butterfly with a stem from the beautiful Sugar Pea Designs Botanical Branches die set

The background is also by Birch Press Deisgn – the Pinpoint Radial Plate.
