How Charming!

Welcome back my crafty friends.  I am here today with the second of the November Designers Challenge.

The challenge theme was set by Karen Aiken and it is:
"Charmed, I'm sure!" - use any of the charm dies for a card of any theme. 

For my card, I used the Rectangle Pull Card die. I have used that Holiday Charms die set. The sentiment comes from the Merry Christmas Pop Up die set.






By adding the use of coordinating dies from the Rectangle Accordion die set, I was able to create a window in the card for the charm to hang from. The tree charm was decorated with glitter dots from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Hat Attack!

Hello my crafty friends.  I am here today with the first of the November Designers Challenge and we are have a mad hatter of a time.

The challenge is:
"Hat Attack" - there are 8 different hat choices in the Props/Charms/Anita sets - use one (or more) on a card. It's all about the hats!

For the front of my card, I styled Chilly with the Santa Hat from the Props 5 dies set. He is riding in a sleigh from the Sleigh Gift Card Holder. The presents from the Christmas Charms and the Pine Tree Pivot card die.


For the inside of the card, I used Honey the Bear and styled him also in the Santa Hat. With a snip snip here, and a snip snip there, the hat easily converts to a toboggan. The inside of the card also uses the Anita Frame,  Merry & Bright clear stamp set and the candy cane accessory from Jolly the mouse.
