My Guest Designer card for crafty monkeys

My Guest designer card for
Crafty monkeys


I was asked if i wanted to be this weeks guest designer
at crafty monkeys i was so excited and i said yes
I was told the theme for this weeks challenge, was to make a
Christmas card.I chose out some bright blue paper,
after that i was looking though my mums stamp collection.
I found this sugar Nellie stamp. i had an idea in my head of what colours
i would use to shade in.Near the image i had a blue peace of paper and it was a bit boring so then i asked my
mum if i could use the embossing folder, so my mum was about to show me how to use the embossing folder but she thought of an idea to make it a little bit more colourful.
my mum took a ink pad and wiped it on the folder, then and only then she put the paper in the embossing folder and ran it through the big shot. It looked lush.

A Stroke Above said...

Wow, I can't believe these cards. Your mom is an excellent teacher but I believe the talent must be in the genetics. I mentioned your mom's blog on my blog and so I am also mentioning yours too, since your cards are so wonderful. I hope you get some visitors from TEXAS. Keep up the good work. You can check out my blog, A Stroke Above at http://astrokeabove.blogspot.com/ I doubt there is much to interest you, but you can read what I said about you and your mom. I suffer from a terminal disease and my blog is more about reaching out to meet and help others like myself. I am new at this so it hasn't grown much yet. I make cards to keep me going and I've made many friends since I began my blog. If you like it and have time, you can link up to my email and drop me a line. Best of luck, Linda Crowder
