About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Party Paws Christmas Collection - Sneak Peek #2

Back again with another sneak peek from the Party Paws Christmas Collection. This one is an Easel Card made using one of the eight stamp sets - this one is called 'Dear Santa'. 
I used my Spectrum Noir pens on the Neenah Solar White card to colour this gorgeous image in:
Dark Fur - IG9, 8, 7, 6, 5
Light Fur Shading - IG1, 2
Cheeks - FS6, Blender
Hat - DR3, CR11, 9, 7
Hat Trim Shading - TB1, Blender
Sack - EB8, 6, 5, 3
Presents - FS1, 2, GB2, TN1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

I printed a couple of the papers from CD1 onto Satin Finish Paper (Design Set 2/10, and Co-ord Paper 2) and used the colouriser to create a colour that would tone with the presents.

The sentiment I chose from the set was 'Dear Santa, I've been good this year' - and used it as the stopper for the Easel card.  As ever, I added a bit of organza ribbon and some pearls to complete the card!!

Don't forget - you can see the collection on Create and Craft Saturday 9th - 9am, 12pm and 6pm - and Sunday 10th - 11am, 2pm and 7pm. 

Back tomorrow!!
