Monday Mashup #20...


Good afternoon and thank you for dropping by today, my apologies for the lateness of my post today, there is so much going on this week, I am running a bit behind!!!

Here in the UK has seen a large percentage of the population put back into what is effectively full lock down again this weekend.  This has put pay to most Christmas gatherings and has hit so many people really hard.  My husband and I had already planned to spend it alone this year (with the dogs of course!) and have accepted the disappointment but my heart goes out to everyone who has had their plans changed at the last minute.  Here's hoping for a better 2021 when we can once again hug our friends and family and spend valuable time with them.

I am sharing with you today a project and some cards from my last class for this year.  We wanted a non Christmas class to see us out and I chose the beautiful Nature's Beauty stamp set.  It is one you have seen me use the 'snow' stamp from lots over the last few weeks but this class was all about the animals.

We made a box in a card for our project, mixed up with the Gilded Autumn Speciality Designer Series Paper.

The box has an acetate window so you can see what is inside and the inside of the cover forms your card.

We then made a series of cards incorporating all the animals.  This set has so many wintery possibilities but I specifically wanted it to be about the animals and how versatile this set can be, here are the cards that we made.

All of the animals were stamped in Staz On and were painted using inks.  I stuck to just four colours from the DSP, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Cajun Craze which meant that everything co-ordinated beautifully.

I hope you like the projects today, you can find the instructions for the box in a card here.

I look forward to seeing you next week with a sneak peek of some lovely new goodies coming in the Spring/Summer catalogue.

Happy Christmas to you all, keep safe and try and have a good time.
