A Perfect Time To Craft Debut

I have been dying to tell you all and let you in on my little secret but I have been sworn to secrecy until it was announced on the blog.....

I am the new member of the Design Team for The Perfect Time To Craft Challenge Blog

This months challenge is kindly sponsored by The Artsy Stamper and Fred She Said

My first project uses images by The Artsy Stamper

These are the pre coloured images but come in black and white also for those of you who enjoy the colouring task.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

The scene was created by using a number of the pre coloured images from the stamp set. This was die cut with a torn rectangle nesting die

The backing paper was created by using the gift digital stamp in black and white and the same image in colour. There were scattered randomly and cut with a stitched rectangle nesting die

A piece of green card was cut using a larger torn rectangle die.
An A5 card base was blended with distress ink in Fired Brick around the edges

The background paper and the green torn rectangle were adhered to the card base.

Hessian ribbon by adhered on top of this 

and the image was then glued on

Tiny buttons were placed on the ribbon either side of the image

The green and red nuvo drops were dotted about the background

A wooden holly embellishment was decorated with the nuvo drops and then glued onto the image 

Nuvo drops were added to the white background in moonlight silver to give the impression of snow
