Welcome to the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.
My family consider me to be somewhat of a hoarder (I take after my Mum lol ) so I'm sure that they will be thrilled to see that I actually made use of some of the so called 'rubbish'.
Use something that is recycled, for example a pringles container into a pen pot, the inside of a parcel tape roll to make a jewellery box. Alternatively just something on the project that is recycled, ie corrugated cardboard for background, bits of sweet box ribbon, shiny foil etc.
We're sponsored again by the lovely Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for her online shop which is crammed full of goodies with new stock arriving all the time!
I'm not much of a one for pen pots or the like, so I decided to stick with card making and recycle the inside of a roll of DSST to make a shaker card.
The fir branches have been embossed with one of the new Stampendous Fran tage Aged Silver embossing powder.
The Robin and Reindeer have been painted with coffee and the new Limited Edition Distress inks Winter.
I thought that we might make a variation of this on the first Saturday class at Davina's on Saturday 19th. Of course if the ladies bring the inside of a reel of tape with them they can copy it exactly.
Perhaps they can view that as their homework - use up a reel of tape before then.
I'm sure I will be able to lol.
I am loaning this card to Jenny for her TV show tomorrow.
You can see it on Create and Craft sky channel 671 at 3pm tomorrow the 15th November.
I'm in need of a little Granny nap now. I had to start work at 5am this morning, and I think I must have woken every hour, on the hour, so I am shattered.
Have a good evening
Happy Bank Holiday and more crafty stuff.
