June Gallery - Fab's Big Christmas Challenge


Wow can you believe it, one month has passed already. It's Christmas in July today on both QVC USA and QVC UK (even the today special value is identical). I feel all festive despite the hot weather and the stubborn sunshine in London this morning. I've been taping those QVC shows as we both enjoy Mr Christmas and Thomas Pacconi decorations.

Here's the gallery where you can enjoy the gorgeous cards these ladies have made:

Beth - Karen - Steph - Ella Bella - Megastamper - Phree - Glee - Beverley

Whimsical Unicorn and Madonna Cards - Foilplay.co.uk Samples







The lovely Gill who owns http://www.foilplay.co.uk/ has asked to make some samples using foils and glitters. I'm still working on two cards (.....one is a fairy card, wink) but in the meantime I thought I would share with you what Vince has done. He took to foiling literally like a duck to water ! I couldn't stop him and you can see the three cards he made. Isn't he talented ? Well done Vince, I just love how he used some old public domain pictures and foiled accenting the images.















I'm also adding here the papers he zinged up with foiling you can see the plain paper on top and the foiled paper below, this technique really enhances your existing papers and they look more expensive and beautiful. Papers are Dovecraft and DCWV (Die Cut with a View)
