Rudolph Days - June

Wow, I can't believe that we are half way through the year already. As it's the 25th of the month it's time for the Rudolph Days challenge over on Scrappy Mo's blog. Last Saturday I saw these gorgeous Tattered Lace dies on Create and Craft and they just happened to fall into my shopping basket. They arrived yesterday so they had to come out of the packaging for a play and just in time for the challenge too. Unusually for me I have managed to make CAS cards too, that rarely happens.



The first card I made was using the Melded Carol Singers, which I placed onto some blue card that I dotted with a white Signo pen to make it look like snow. Then mounted onto some silver mirri card and a 5x5 card blank.


My next card was using the melded Robin die, for this one I used a small Christmas cottage stamp from Inkylicious on the 5x5 card blank before placing the Robin over the top. I added some glitter to both cards to finish as well as a sentiment.  Below is the collection that I made for the box this month, it's filling up nicely now.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by and you kind comments which are always appreciated.

  8. Two lovely cards Sue. The Robin die is especially pretty and just perfect to use over a stamped scene. I love the Winter Cabin stamp and I used it to make most of my Chrismas cards last year. Well done on getting ahead with your Christmas cards. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

  18. Two beautiful Christmas cards. The first very British, with a touch of a bygone era, very romantic. The second card wonderfully made. I love the idea to leave the cut elements in place, it creates a beautiful drawing. Great card.

  23. These are really pretty and elegant cards Sue using these two Tattered Lace dies and see you made the most of your crafting session by making three of each design. I love the blue behind the carol singers and the stamp you have used on the Robin one works perfectly in the background. x
