Christmas Gifts

WooHoo!!! I've been invited to guest design at the fabulous ABC Christmas Challenge this week.

After all my good intentions of making my Chrimbo cards steadily throughout the year, I've made no more than a small handful, and it is already July.  I really must get myself into gear with them again, otherwise November is gonna be full of snowflakes and holly like last year.  Although that is no bad thing in my mind!

Anyhoo, this fortnight at ABC Christmas the theme is 'M' - Make a gift.  I've gone a bit overboard and made several.  I saw some amazing handmade tiles on the blog of the uber-talented Mojca of Soul Sanctuary.  See her beautiful tiles here, here and here.  Mine are exceptionally amateur looking compared to hers, but I'm gonna have another go sometime soon to try to improve to something better.

Prepare for a photo overload.

The first few pictures are of some coasters that I've made from clay, stamped and coloured :

The last couple of pics are much smaller and have a little hole at the top to pop some twine or ribbon to hang them as decorations.

The ABC Christmas challenge is sponsored by Stamp And Create this fortnight. I can't wait to see what you create.

See my cards available on eBay


Card Recipe:
  • Image - Penny Black Cheesecake (various)
  • DasWhite Air Dry Clay
  • Colouring - Promarkers, Copics, Sakura Stardust Gel pens
  • From my stash -  Stickles, liquid pearls, sandpaper.
  • Cutting tools (used as moulds) - coffee jar lids, pint glass
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.
