Team catch-up make & takes

Hello there,

For some reason I woke up today at 'stupid O'Clock' this morning, but at least it's given me some time to potter around in peace and quiet.

As I mentioned yesterday, today I'm going to share with you what we made at our little teams pre-Christmas get-together.

( Lots of photo's today, so be ready!)

We made an embossed card, but with a difference.

On this card we only embossed a certain area of the card.  This is done by using a piece of chipboard cut into the shape of the area you want embossed.

It's a great technique and really visually effective

We used sponge daubers and Champagne shimmer paint over the embossed surface to highlight the image even more.  It's so pretty and sparkly IRL.

This next project was to show us how to use half a scalloped circle to produce a Christmas tree to used as an embellishment on a card.

This was done with just a three folds, as produces a really cute little tree.

Folded flat, this doesn't look like much, but when you open it, it becomes a lovely decoration.  It is made with square pieces of DSP.

Open it up by pulling the button up the ribbon

and to fix it into position, just push the button back down again when it is fully open, so pretty.

We made it with just 4 pieces of DSP, but it can be made with more and or bigger squares for a flamboyant decoration.

And as it does fold flat so easily, it's great from a storage point of view.

This last project was made using the Mini Milk Carton die for the Big Shot, but as you can see from the picture, it has a lid rather than the traditional folded 'pouring' top.

We also made a little sparkly flower embellishment for the top using a scallop punch

Hope you liked seeing these projects.

I will be doing tutorials for some of them that I will be posting over the next few weeks.

Hope you have a great start to your week... xx
