November card chain reveal

Hello everyone. It's time to reveal the cards that were exchanged this month for the Card Chain Challenge. My card went to Joanne in the UK.

As always, there are different options offered for inspiration. These were the options for November:

Colour Palette Option


Sketch Option


Theme Options: Snowflakes/Polar Animals/Friendship


Product / Technique Options: Book Paper/Pop Up

As you can see, I loosely followed the sketch and combined all of the theme options.

Hello everyone. I'm popping in for a quick post with this mistletoe card. 

I found this image in my UFO box. I think it was a freebie that I coloured in several years ago. All I needed to do now was add more shading with my Copics and coloured pencils and die cutting it into a panel with a red mat behind it. The sentiment (Winnie & Walter) was stamped in black Versafine and fussy cut.

To add a little more interest to the background, I did some very light ink blending over an old stencil using Speckled egg distress ink.

I'm linking up my card at:

Rainbow trees

Hello everyone. As soon as I saw the card that Laura Bassen created for the recent Holiday Workshop class at Online Card Classes, I knew I wanted to use her idea and technique with my Tim Holtz stencil. As always, this class was filled with inspiration, but I have only managed to create this one card so far.

I used Catherine Pooler inks and blending brushes to do my rainbow ink blending. I white heat embossed this beautiful bold sentiment (Festive Cheer, Penny Black), trimmed & fussy cut it out and mounted it to my panel using thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few clear drops.
