Christmas and Spring

Hi,  Ali-craft has a new challenge Anything Goes, unfortunately I was too late for the Christmas entry but not to worry will enter it for the new challenge, well waste not want not 'eh................


The background is made from Acrylic Squishings, mounted on gold card.  Stamp from Inkadinkado and added some Stickles.

The second card is an interesting exercise in making a 3D card which folds flat.  Originally an idea from Joanne Wardle.



Papers used by Crafty Individuals and the stamp is by Designs by Ryn, coloured with Distress Inks.

Mmmm think I will enter this card as well for the Ali-craft challenge.  Two chances are better than one don't you think.............lol

Thank you for dropping by and hope we will all warm up soon.  Take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x

Netty, both are gorgeous! I do love hummingbirds and yours is a real beauty! I actually just made some liquid food for my garden hummers and I get to watch them out my kitchen window! Enjoy the day. Hugs!

That angel stamp is so pretty. I happen to have the same one and really have enjoyed using it. Also, the hummingbird card is so colorful and creative.

Ryn Tanaka said...

Hey Annette, thanks for posting to my Facebook Page :) Really intriguing idea to do a pop up card. I never see anything like that. Very unique design! Beautiful subtle colour work on it as well. I'll post this in my next customer creation gallery on my blog with a link to you like last time. I've also recently started doing a customer creation draw for a free stamp for those who send in pics of their projects. I'll enter you into January's :) All my best and thanks again for sharing!
