Layer it up!

Hi, and welcome!

It's the start of the weekend, people, and that means another chance to enter a fabby challenge at Card Crafter's Circle and this is definitely goin' to be a popular one!

This week, our theme is 


We want to see layers of paper, or layers in your images... whatever you'd like, just lots of layers! This is a perfect opportunity to layer up all those gorgeous patterned papers, or go wild with 3D images!

This week, our sponsor is STAMP ART DESIGN BY KATHRYNE! Kathryne's images are sure to delight you, covering so many themes, and so very cute too! You can find SADK designs here in the Whimsy Shop.... 

Our random prize winner will receive a selection of images, of their choice ... yummy!

It's always such a pleasure to create something with Kathryne's lovely images, and for this challenge, I chose to make a card with Polar cute!

I layered papers from the Basics Collection at docrafts onto a white card base......

A Nellie Snellen  scalloped label die was used to cut out this sweet twosome, then a little  blue chalk for the sky, some Promarkers to colour up the little pals (with a little texture paste for the ickle pingu's chest and face), and they were pleased with how they looked....look at the expressions on those ickle faces...hahaaa.....

A rescued snowflake from a  shop-bought card that was sent to me.....that'll be my Scottish blood, lol........Dad would be proud of me........

A piece of flocked netting in the palest icy blue, with a narrow piece of white organza, tied into bows... a silver jingle bell....(had to make sure it actually's a good 'un).....held in place with a pearly pin......

And a Spellbinder's teeny scalloped rectangle cut from a scrap, with an even teenier label for the sweet sentiment, chalked to match the image......done!

Now, I visit your blogs often enough to know that you LOVE layers on your creations,  so this is a must-do challenge.....take a trip over to the Challenge blog to see some lovely-jubbly inspiration, then get creatin'!

  2. HA! Not surprised at all that your cute little card would feature snow (LOL)! You've done such a nice job with this sweet image. Thought of you last night as we actually had snow here at my house in southern USA (and after I told you to keep it to yourself - grin)! As usual, the little "extras" you add to your cards are the greatest!
