Time for Christmas

November 15, 2015

Welcome back

This week I have finally got into the Christmas mode getting products ready for Gift Hutt.  I have got the Cricut chirping and I am happy with the results with these cards and tags.  I have used both the Artistry and Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge to make these very cute little Santas and Teddy Santas to place on the cards and tags.

I have cut the tags from Glacier cardstock using the Art Philosophy cartridge at 3″ a and the To and From stamp is from the Scandinavian Wishes Stamp set (a retired SOTM).  I finished off with some Ruby washi tape.  I am not a big user of washi tape but I do like to use it to fill in gaps like what I have done here.

This cute little Santa is from the Artistry cartridge was very easy to do.  He has been done at 2.5″ and I have coloured the base card (Colonial White) with a very pale pink copic pen which helped to have the white beard stand out more.

Then I made some cards with the Santas and the White Pines papers.

 

#CTMH White Pines and Artistry

I wasn’t really sure about this brown paper but it does make a nice background to help pop the embellishments.  The paper pack comes with Chocolate cardstock, but I used Desert Sand instead as it coordinated better with the Santa bear.

I have had a couple of difficult weeks and have had to make the decision to resign as a Close to My Heart consultant.  I love the products but life has thrown me a curve ball and I have had to go with it.  I will still use CTMH products (I have quite a stash now!) and will continue with this blog as I enjoy the design process.  I will try and participate in another couple of blog hops and will still be part of a Facebook group showcasing my artwork.  I have been very humbled with the lovely comments and support from the other CTMH consultants across Australasia, Canada the the United States – so a huge thank you to everyone.

I will now focus on my shop Gift Hutt and make products for sale there.

I hope you all have a good week and Happy Crafting

Patricia
