Christmas Tags


Our theme at CCP this week is Christmas tags.

I hold a Christmas tag swap every year and the ladies created some wonderful tags. I can't wait for you to see them! Be sure to check their links out!

 In the meantime, here's mine:

I used silver, gold, glitter, sequins and vellum, some of my favourite things to craft with.

Then recently I created a couple more tags:

Love the combo of black, kraft, glitter and sequins.

And finally on this last tag  I used kraft with silver embossing, such a lovely result.

We'd love to see your tags, please link them up below!

Stamped Background

Hi there! It's Patricia here (super late by the way) and it's my turn to post the challenge!

I asked for cards with stamped backgrounds and this is mine...

I made this card during a crop and Regs let me play with her Winter Wishes stamp set by Neat & Tangle. Such a great stamp set!

Create a "Scene"

It's Sharon this week and I want everyone to "create a scene"!  

No, not that kind of scene...a scene on your card.

I created a fall scene...

And then I created a wintery scene...

I can't wait to see what kind of "scenes" the other Party-Ers create this week!

Who is that masked 'die-cut'??

LOL!! It's Kathryn here and this week it is my turn to set the challenge.  I saw this technique on the Hero Arts blog, using a die cut as a mask for your background.  I'm here to say that I was very happy with the results!!!

I cut the snowflakes out of a die and then placing them randomly on the background went around them in ink.  Then I used the snowflakes as embellishment on the card.  Love, Love the look!!
I tried this with another die (a balloon shape) and wasn't as pleased with the result. But I won't give up and will use this technique again.

Let's see how the other Party-er's have interpreted this technique.  Then add your project below!

Turn up the tunes!

Hello! It's Patricia and I'm hosting our challenge this week. The challenge is a twist from Sharon's Inpiration challenge from a couple weeks ago and I'm asking you to find inspiration in a song.

The song I chose is We Are Young by Fun and this is the card I came up with...

Hope you can play along this week. I can't wait to see all of your cards.

What Inspires You??

It's Sharon this week and I want to see what inspires everyone else! 

For me, I picked hummingbirds. They buzz around my backyard all summer. They are so fast that I rarely get to really see them. But when they hover on a nearby are so beautiful.



I have also had my eye on this gorgeous card on Pinterest for a while. 

So this is what I came up with...

I can't wait to see all the things that inspired the other Party-Ers this week! Please show us what inspires you and what you created!

It's Sharon and I have been a bit obsessed with butterflies lately. So that's my theme this week.

This uses the same technique I posted back in April, just different sentiment, colour scheme and orientation. I just love the way the Peerless colours are so vibrant and blend in such a cool way. I was inspired by Jill Foster.

And in case you were sick of seeing this technique, I did make another butterfly card. This time I embossed a bunch of little butterflies and watercoloured them.

I can't wait to see all the butterflies flying around here this week!

Circling around!

Hi everyone... it's Kathryn and this week I am challenging everyone to creating a project with circles.  I have to admit that my scrapbooking mojo is not firing on all cylinders right now, so I reached back to a recent layout I completed that incorporated circles.  It was one that received positive feedback from my fellow party-ers!

Here is my layout from a Celebrity cruise Dave and I took with his sister and brother-in-law.  It was definitely a fun week!!

Thanks for joining our party!! Take a look at what my party-er peeps have created!

It's Sharon this week and I want to see something vintage! The idea can mean different things to different, classic, retro. 

Currently I am in love with vintage pyrex and have collected my first few pieces. So I thought my PTI Bowl of  Sunshine set was perfect.

I embossed three bowls for that authentic shiny look and stacked them up on some classic kraft. Even the sentiment has a vintage feel!

I can't wait to see the vintage vibe here on Crazy Card Party this week!

Use your Fave Die!

It's Sharon and for my turn to issue the challenge I was inspired by Patricia's recent "favourite stamp" challenge to change it into "favourite die." You know, that go-to die that you love using? For me it is my PTI Fabulous Frames polaroid frame die. I reach for it all the time and it cuts so nicely.

Be sure to check out what favourite dies the other Party-Ers are featuring this week. I bet it will mean I will need to add them to my collection too!

I'm waiting to receive some paint swash stamps but in the meantime I free-handed this one.
