Design team makes....Not just Christmas

Hello everyone...Genny here. First let me say Happy New Year and that I hope that 2016 brings you much happiness. My first design team make for this year, uses what is thought of as a Christmas make a card that could be used for anything. The stamp set that I have used is from Crafters Companions Adorables range. This range features the designs of Jayne Nestorenko. This set is called Loving and is part of a six stamp set. This was produced as a christmas stamp but by looking at it a bit can make a lovely Thankyou/Birthday card.

I used the image of the little girl with the cat. I stamped the image using my memento inkpad and then colored it with my promarkers.

I then mounted the image onto some gold mirri. The card itself I covered with some paper from my stash and then added a paper border. I then embellished with a heart die cut and some flowers which I coloured to match in with the colours that I've used. I do so love looking at what I have and trying to use them in a different way.

For the next few weeks, I will be using other 'christmas' themed goods to make rest of the year makes. The way I see it is if you can use some of your christmas stash for other cards, then you're getting more for your money..and at this time of year, we're all looking for ways to save money.

I hope that you all had a fabulous festive season and that the new year brings you lots of exciting crafting. So until next week..take care and happy crafting.
