The Spot #142 - Colour Challenge


Welcome to The Spot - for Inspiration and Weekly Cardmaking Challenges
This week we are using Black n White with a Pop of Colour...
You can join in the FUN by creating your own version of The Spot #142


 I chose to use products from All 3 catalogues that I can order from currently...
Annual and Holiday Mini as well as the Pre-order of Jan-June Mini...

I needed an Anniversary Card for friends of mine...
Just a PERFECT excuse to create I believe!!!

I used Peony Garden DSP - Annual Catalogue
I used Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder - Annual Catalogue
I used Black Glimmer Specialty Paper - Aug - Dec Holiday Mini
I used Always in my Heart Stamp Set - Jan-June Mini
Floral Heart Dies - Jan-June Mini
AND Mini  Stamp Cut & Emboss Machine to cut out all the dies...
except the Heart it needed to be cut on the Large Stamp Cut & Emboss Machine


  Thank you for joining us over here at The Spot #142,
Don't forget we would LOVE you to create something for this challenge.
Cheers Shaz

The Spot #141 - Last Minute Gift Ideas

 Welcome to The Spot -  for Inspiration and Weekly Cardmaking Challenges

I created a card with a gift tag with a gift card hidden inside...
Using products from Wonder of the Season Suite including the DSP
Wishes and Wonder Bundle, Wonder of the Season Memories and More Card Pack.


 I used a Pretty Peacock Cardstock base card and added Whisper White panel that
I stamped with Pretty Peacock and the leaves.
I die cut the Gold with the North Pole Wonder dies behind the North Pole stamped image.
I don't know what the fold of the card is called BUT it is very simple to make.

The Spot #140 - Over The Top Christmas Card

This week we have a super fun challenge for you!  Bring your Biggest Baddest Holiday Project to this week's challenge it's a Holiday Throw-down!  Who will stand tall over all the competition and be crowned The SPOT Holiday Throwdown champion! 
It's all  on the table so anything goes! Cannot wait to see what you create <3

 Hello and welcome to my Blog, This week I have a FUN fold card for you for our theme.
I found this card via the internet search of Fun Fold Cards - Star Easel Card

A6 Size Card

A6 size card
OR a piece of A4 Night of Navy cardstock
cut in half along the long side and then folded in half.
You will end up creating 2 cards from the design...
So easy to make multiples when it is already cut from the first cut.

2 pieces of 3.3/4 x 5.1/4 Seaside Spray Cardstock,
cut both pieces from top left to bottom right.

2-4 pieces of  3.1/2 x 4.7/8 Trimming The Town DSP depending on whether you want different patterns like I did. Cut 1 piece from top left to bottom right and the other top right to bottom left. If you want them all the same then you just need to cut 2 pieces of pattern paper from top left to bottom right.

Rather than a small circular sentiment I chose to create a scene with
matching Trimming The Town DSP.


After watching the video several times I still made a mistake as to where to cut my
card slots to make it stand up straight within the back triangle part of the card.
BUT I got there in the end...Sticky Velcro Dots

Cut the slots on both sides at 3″ from the bottom of the card.
Cut this straight down approx 1" DO NOT ANGLE (like me)

So that I had room to write my message on the back of the card I cut another
3.3/4 x 5.1/4 Seaside Spray Cardstock, cut both pieces from top left to bottom right.
I adhered this to the back of my card and stamped my sentiment from
Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp set.

You will have to include instruction how it fits together when sending in the post.
You will also need a Envelope Punch Board to create an envelope big enough to fit
the card and all of it's components.

Thank you for joining me and I do hope that my card inspired you create your very own
Over The Top Holiday Card for this week's competition...Check it out here
