More Calendar Catchups

Hi all,

Hope I find you all well today. 

I'm doing another quick catchup with The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge ...


Week 5 - Paper Tape


I covered some card with Tim Holtz tissue tape then die cut the TH snowman. Added some colour with Promarkers and Distress Ink.  Added Glossy Accents to the hat & arms and added a touch of tartan for Hogmany. Made a snowy background with Stormy Sky DI and Glimmer Mist and added a little chipboard robin.



Week 6 - Felt


I silver embossed a Hero Arts background stamp, bought two Christmases ago and has never been used! Die cut two Sizzix Gingerbread Men with felt and added seed beed eyes and pearl 'buttons'.


Okay Dokey, must dash, see y'all later.

Suze xx

Loving your snowman, the scarf finishes him off nicely. Isn't the brown felt perfect for your two gingerbread men. Great calendars.

Perfect choices for these months. Loved that you included a wee bit of tartan on the snowman. I'm all feted out at the mo but I would like to own that Sizzix die. Could come in handy.

Great minds think alike with the tissue tape - promise I didn't see this when I did mine! I love your snowman. The little gingerbread people are a great idea for the felt week and I love how you've added the bow tie and heart - great idea.
I'm so glad to see that someone else has done a christmas based design too.
