Rudolph Day - September 2016

Rudolph Day, again, they seem to come round so quickly.
Oh, have to put this post on hold as I haven't taken my photo's yet!!!!
Well that was a nightmare and a really rubbish photo, I blame it on all the glitter.
My favourite is the centre green one as I did not have any backing paper that really went with the glitter on the  image so I just used double sided tape and peeled off the top layer and glittered it with the same glitter as the image.

Six cards and I am just about done for this year, only special Family cards left. But still have some cards to show for the last two RD challenges.
Please do pop over to Scrappy Mo's - Scraps of Life blog to see the lovely cards made by her and the DT.
Oops, Woodware stamp - Berry Wreath, it is a really lovely stamp but not for the faint hearted, I really, really struggled with this one, tried it with pearls, glitter glue and plain glitter as shown here, but these were the best but certainly not perfect. The best thing is the prices of Woodware stamps are reasonable.
Various glitters and backing papers,

Thank you so much for dropping in and I would love to hear your thoughts on this post, good or bad.

Hi Kath, another lovely set of cards. You put me to shame each month as I usually only have one or maybe two to show and you always have about half a dozen!

I think your "solution" of the glitter borders works really well. Love the design of your cards.

These are all so fabulous! I like the look of all of them but have to agree with you about the glittered edges one...It is my fave too!
What a brilliant idea to think of using the tape for the look of the mat.

Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.

What a beautiful collection of sparkly cards! I love the image, and especially how you glittered the edges with one instead of matting it! They;re so festive and pretty!

MaryH said...

What a gorgeous trio (clicking & enlarging certainly shows these off great too!) Loads of sparkle and I love the twiggy wreaths. I missed Rudy Day last month, got started early THIS month, but have to finish one off. Hopefully can do that tonight...and post before the window closes. Great job on this design, it's a good one to assembly line, and you've got 3 to add to your stash. TFS & Hugs
