Zentangle Christmas

It's a new month and time for a new challenge at Unstampabelles, This time Susan would like to see some Zentangle on your Christmas cards using non traditional colours.

Here is my inspiration for you.


Using an outline of a Christmas pudding I then used my own Zentangle designs to fill in the 'pudding' area. Orange. blue and pink was my chosen colour palette. A strange combo I know!! I went on to Zentangle the holly leaves using the same colour palettes. The berries were Zentangled in pink. The heart on the 'icing' is from Hunky Dory. Finally I added a diecut Holly bough in blue. The Merry Christmas greeting along the bottom is also from Hunky Dory.

I hope you've been inspired to join us. There's a great prize on offer as usual.

                                           Wow! Who wouldn't want to win these goodies?

Have fun!!

Christmas Present

Good Morning crafters. Well I hope you're all keeping warm and getting plenty of crafting done where it's warm, indoors!! The weather has changed here too. The sun is still shining but it's bitterly cold.

 Enough about the weather let's get on with our next challenge at CD Sunday. The theme has been chosen by Pamela...'Christmas Present'. So we want to see more of your lovely Christmas makes. It doesn't have to be a card as long as you have used something from a CD anywhere on your entry and tell us which CD you have used. We have a Facebook page now where you can add your entry. So non bloggers you have no excuse now for not entering our challenge. There's always a yummy prize on offer too.

We had some fabulous entries last time for Jane's challenge 'Christmas things with wings' including Facebook entries . Well done to the newbies we hope to see lots more entries from you in the future. The Top Three for Carol's challenge 'Take a stamp' are up on the blog now. So don't forget to pop over to see if you're a winner.(link in sidebar|)

Here is my 'Christmas Present' inspiration for you this time.


I used a lovely CD from Joanne Sheen ....'Victorian Christmas Cards'. There are so many wonderful traditional images on this CD that it was hard to choose. I began with A4 white card stock folded in two. Then printed off the background paper and image from the CD and added it to the card. There were lots of small additional toppers on the one sheet so I use those too. I added the circular one to highlight the child gazing in wonder at her Christmas Present and another to create a gift tag. Finally adding the greeting which is also from the CD.

I hope you enjoy the challenge and I look forward to seeing all your yummy entries.

Have a great week and wrap up warm if you're brave enough to venture out in the snow!!

Christmas cards with the Dragonflies!

Good Morning everyone. I hope you have lots of lovely plans for your weekend. If you're from the Northern Hemisphere I hope you are keeping warm and aren't snowed in. But then you can always craft to keep those fingers busy!!

We have a new challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies. This time Hilde would like you to show us your Glammed Up Christmas cards. Here is my inspiration for you.


I recently purchased some lovely toppers from Hunky Dory. How about this for a glamorous Christmas stocking! I used white card stock for the main card and added a pink matt. Then the Hunky Dory image was added plus a circular topper for the greeting.

I hope you'll be inspired to join us. Don't forget it's card only and a fun challenge.

Enjoy!!
