Christmas. . . . . . . . . . Part Twenty

Good morning one and all. Hope this finds you and yours well and to those who are under the weather, I send best wishes.

Thank you for your comments on my stitched card. I can't sew for toffee but can just about follow the pattern for cards lol!!!

Now today, I return to the samples I made for John's shows with his super pad and fab stamps and today's special offer is a BOGOF (or twofer as Sue Wilson calls them).
So, a few photos if you don't mind. The ingredients are basically the same, I've just used the pad in a different way.

For this card I used the images from the pad as panels around the central aperture and the hints of gold around the edges are from my trusty Krylon Gold Leaf Pen.

This is an 8x8 card to fit everything on.

For the one below, it is 6x6 with a couple of the panels glued together to give the concertina effect.
For this one, I used the stamp set for the smaller images and the final partridge in the pear tree.

CE Brunswick Green card
CE Rich Red card

There is still a couple more to come folks so I hope that you will be ok with that.

At work today but hopefully home in time to see the highlights of the Italian GP.

Hope you have all had a good weekend and a great week ahead.

  7. Hi Ang,

    Fabulous card and great use of the stamps, just beautiful. Hope you are well, I have been taking a break from crafting mainly as I have been away a lot and not had time to do much so rather than stress myself out trying to get something posted it shall wait until I have made a few cards, at this present time I don't even have 1 lol! We are due to have more Sheen cards to do soon so I hope to get a few cards done before I start those.

    Keep up the great work

    Love & hugs

  8. Hi Ang, beautiful cards, love your designs and colours.
    i bought these when John did his shows, yet to ink them up though, hope I can do as well as this.
    Hope all is well with you, Kate x

  9. Hello Ang,

    Love Maureen xxx

  10. Hello Ang
    My my they are both gorgeous! That Krylon pen lurks its head again It's created a fabulous edge I love it and the cards!

  11. Lovely cards, Ang. Caught up with John yesterday at Colemans. I was very restrained - saving my pennies for Ally Pally!

  12. Two stunning cards, my favourite is the first one.


  13. Hi Ang, both these cards are beautiful, love the panelled effect of the first one, but really cannot choose a favourite. Have a great day. Bx

  14. Hi Ang clever use of John's papers and stamps look really nice. Quite an interesting race yesterday thought there were going to be some penalties for the tyres. Love from Jackie xx

  15. I love your 12days of Christmas card. Too bad square cards cost extra to mail here. I might try to figure one out in a 5 x7 size because I would like to CASE your card! Have a great day Ang!

  16. Two great ideas here - thank you. Watched John at Colemans on Saturday. Lots of tips from him as we are getting to expect! Good to have a chat again and ask him about techniques.

  17. Hi Ang,
    playing catch up on my comments tonight.
    wonderful card, and fab designing of those wonderful stamps, and papers that John designed.
    Hope all is well on the pond.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  18. Beautiful crafting, this is amazing Ang, love it!

  19. love both your cards, hope all is well, xxx
