Baubles at CCC

Hello there - well these fortnight really are rolling round rather too quickly for my liking - its time for another venture out with the Christmas Card Club girls and this time the theme was baubles... I had great plans with this theme but time has thwarted me again and I only got two made! Here they are:

I tried to sketch a tree for the baubles to hang on - this one didn't work quite so well but hey ho! The piggies are from 'pigs in blankets' by HobbyArt and the bauble fronts I made using the newly released chocolate baroque stamps - I stamped onto acetate and overlayed them over the images.

I think the tree was more successful in this one - same method but the goats came from a different stamp set - also from hobbyart.

My mum also made two cards ....

This first one used a clarity stencil and stamps from clarity and inkylicious....

This last one used a stencil from imagination crafts....

I hope you feel inspired!!!

Big hugs

  15. Hi to both you Rachel and your mum. Great cards. The festive pigs and goats on your baubles are great fun too. xx

  16. I think the bauble card design works a treat - the tree branches make a great setting for those fun baubles. I agree the second one is the better of the two, but the first one works really well too.

    Nice work on getting ahead with the Christmas cards... I'm always in awe of anyone who can get their Christmas mojo on in July!
