Pears and Mistletoe

I love drawing and colouring pears and think they look great trimmed for Christmas with festive ribbons and foliage.  This image was really enjoyable to colour since there is so much open space and plenty of opportunity for shading and highlighting.
 

Eret made this beautiful post it note holder.

Vivien put together this wonderful Christmas card.

I coloured the image with copics and used it on a card.

Tutorial: S-Fold Cards

Ready for another quick card folding tutorial?
Well, here it is... this one is quick and easy and looks fantastic.
My favourite kind of tutorial!
 

1.  Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 51/2" x 11".

 
2.  Fold it in half so you end up with a card measuring 51/2" square.

 
3.  Fold the front flap back toward the spine, which gives you the basic s-fold card.

 
 
4.  Now it's a simple matter to decorate your card.  Have fun!

Pumpkin Set

This set of pumpkin images contains both plain pumpkins and gourds, which would be great for autumn and Thanksgiving inspired projects, as well as jack-o-lanterns ready to adorn your Hallowe'en projects.  The set contains five black and white line drawings and three full-colour images.


Eret made this seasonal card using the plain gourd image.

Janice made a card for Halloween using the plain pumpkins
overlaid with one of the pumpkin lanterns that she cut out.

My card was made using the pumpkin lantern image.

Haunted Birdhouse

I absolutely love this time of the year.  Everyone is starting to gear up for the holidays and although Hallowe'en is not traditionally celebrated here in Australia, it seems to be more popular as the years go by.  People are making costumes, decorating their houses and stocking up on chocolates and candies... oh the delicious pleasure!  Then not long after Hallowe'en comes my all time favourite holiday, that most wonderful time of the year, Christmas!  Needless to say, things around here are going to be very festive over the next couple of months.
 

 Janice has inspired us with this fabulous autumn-toned card.

 Viv has added a few fun extras to create this cute Hallowe'en greeting.
 
Eret has made this super spooky card using all the fabulous colours of the holiday.

Tutorial - Criss Cross Cards

Criss cross cards get their name from the two panels that cross over the front of the card.  You'll get different looks depending on your measurements and how you cut and fold the panels, but once you have the basic idea you can easily experiment by altering sizes, shapes and folds.
 
 
1.  Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 5" x 12".

 
2.  Score at 31/2" and again at 81/2".

 
3.  Fold along the score lines pressing firmly to achieve nice, sharp folds.

 
4.  Cut away some of the outside panels using a craft knife or trimmer.  The measurement and shape of the cut is up to you and the outcome you are trying to achieve.  I cut mine from the top of the fold to 11/2" up from the bottom of the card.

 
5.  Now that you have the basic card you can add some patterned paper and embellishments.  I added a 43/4" square of patterned paper to the inside of the card, then cut smaller pieces to fit the panels, inside and out.

 
6.  I used a border punch and some matching cardstock to add a trim around the top edges of the card.

 
7.  I added a piece of ribbon all the way around the outside of the card, securing it with double sided tape except in the section where I wanted to add a bow.

 
8.  Your focal image or sentiment can be added to the top front panel of the card.  It only needs to be secured on one side.  Alternatively, you can create a decorative band that slips over the card and holds it closed.

 
9.  I added a bow on the left side of the second panel, which tucks over the top of the focal image effectively holding the card closed.  Easy!

Raspberry House

What bird wouldn't like to live in a cozy little house beneath a fruiting raspberry vine?  Delicious, juicy berries right outside the front door and lovely blossoms to fill the air with perfume.... sounds good to me!


Sue's beautiful card.  Many thanks for the inspiration over the last month Sue!

Viv's gorgeous creation.

Homegrown

I found a new button on my drawing program recently and just had to experiment!  I like the results too... kind of artsy but rustic as well and perfect for some homegrown veges and infused oils (can you guess who's been watching MasterChef??)




Viv's card... don't you just love the sentiment?
