Christmas Ornaments/Baubles

Hi there. I'm taking a break as I've just messed up yet another card. I don't know what's up with me lately. Anyway I thought I'd share one from yesterday's Claritystamp show on Hochanda that went more smoothly. It seems appropriate to be blogging it today as I started putting up my Christmas decorations yesterday. Have you got yours up yet?

I used a Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die to cut out the baubles then created a little scene  in each one.

The first one features the cat and the beautiful little bird in flight (I love this one and think it's going to be used a lot!) with the Wee Trees (I chose the ones that look wintery).

I used Cobalt Archival Ink for the stamping. The cat and bird are first generation and the trees are second. 

The edge of my A4 Clarity blending mat was used to tear a copy paper mask for the hills. 

Some glitter on the trees and a ribbon to hang it from finish it off.

The second one focuses on the tree. This time I added a little moon to the sky with a Post-it mask.

The third and final one is obviously my favourite - it has a Labrador on it! She's looking out for her owner coming over the hill, although if this was Maya she wouldn't be sat there waiting patiently!

Animals from the Thank You Framer Set

Before I go I just thought I'd share a couple of my old Challenge Blog makes from 2013 and 2014 again as they were among the decorations I put up yesterday.

I do love getting my decorations out again each year. The posts on them can be found here and here.  

Since I started writing this Hubby has come home and figured out how to save my card. I'm off to my craft room to see if it works. Have a good evening.
