Christmas Card Club - Humourous
I can't quite believe a fortnight has passed since our last Christmas Card Club challenge and more importantly since my last blog post, but time has not been wasted as I've been busy with the end of Sale-a-bration and attending the Stampin' Up! European Onstage Live Event in Amsterdam last week. It was a fun few days with my family, who joined me, and we all did lots of great things. Me I stamped and swapped and learned lots and got my hands on my copy of the new annual Stampin' Up! catalogue. Martin and the children walked and cycled most of Amsterdam I think and I joined them as much as I could around my schedule. I even got to cycle a little!
I also won a stamp set whilst there called This Little Piggy and I've given it, its first inking today for my humourous Christmas Card Club challenge set by Valery. This little piggy is so so adorable and wait until you see his friends. I've made an aperture in my card and framed it with real red card and then stamped inside the card, adding a Santa hat using last season's punch and a bow on the outside from the returning holly punch. I've used sentiments from the Piggy set and also from the soon to retire Designer Tin of Cards set. The classic label punch is a great replacement for the popular word window punch and simple Christmas card is born.
Remember all the ladies in our challenge group make fab cards with styles and techniques various, so please do go visit them for more ideas.
I'll be back soon with photos from Amsterdam with Onstage highlights, swaps and a Totally Techniques blog hop too!
Easter Blessings to you all.
