Inkspirational #192 - Fold

Hey there everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational. We have a word prompt for you - Fold

I ummmed and arrrrred about this one. I didn't really have any stamps that would even let me think outside the box. So, I went right out of my comfort zone as a one fold gal to following a couple of tutorials to create a card with more than one fold!

I used my new MFT set to create a Christmas card. I love this Santa. The sentiment is from HLS.

Then it folds down quite nicely to fit into an envelope.

Perhaps I have inspired you to make something not in your comfort zone :) See you over at Inkspirational!

Less is More #400 - Small Images

Today we start a new challenge over at Less Is More. We want you to work with small images. You can even use small images together to create a background or just stamp them like I have.

Here are my cards -

Card #1
I finally bought the MFT stamp set Jingle all the Way. I got to have a play with it a couple of years ago when I was in the UK and stayed with Sarah P. Now I have it in my collection and these small images are perfect to create a simple design or combine them to create a scene.
I coloured the images with my polychromo pencils (I love these!) and used a white gel pen to create dots and extra interest :)

Card #2
Once again I used my pencils to colour this cute dinosaur from Lawn Fawn. My grandson is into the 'rawr' word at the moment and I love how this sentiment defines its meaning :) I even bought this stamp set especially for him as he loves anything that 'rawrs' LOL
