Reindeer for the Christmas Card Club!

Hello Everyone I hope you are all tickity boo, but if not , I hope you will soon feel better.

Well what a week for excitement... Trump for President, England beat Scotland at footy, well there's a surprise, they even lost the rugby, an even bigger surprise, lol, but most importantly the John Lewis Christmas Ad is released featuring Buster the Boxer, has anyone seen it, it's absolutely brilliant, Aldi have released their with Kevin the Carrot, he's a wee cutie and M&S has brought out one that bring a wee lump to the throat, which I think is the best one they have done for yonks. Oh yes we're speeding full tilt towards he big day, and talking about Christmas, it's time again for the ladies from the Christmas Card Club to share what they have been making for Sunday. This time the theme has been chosen by our lovely Lorraine and it's Reindeer, always lovely to see them on cards.
Here is what I've come up with;
I've used this beautiful stencil from Imagination Crafts and Sparkle Medium on to black glossy card and then matted on to card I've had for ages from Hunkydory, them gold card from Crafter's Companion, my sentiment is from a wonderful set by John Lockwood.
The image on this card is made with one of Imagination Craft's Art Stamps, and various colours from Memento, inked on with Ink Dusters from Inkylicious. The Embossed background is a folder from Sara Davis, tartan ribbon and a lovely little embellishment form Creative Expressions, then some gems. There is a sentiment there, embossed but not showing up well.
Finally, I'm sure you will recognise this sweet image from LOTV, coloured with Promarkers and Gel Pens by Sakura, lots of glitter, but not showing up. Gold glitter card and papers from an old pad from LOTV, sentiments from Little Claire, a little gold ribbon, a few gems and we're done.

Being part of the lovely group of crafting ladies is such a good way of getting ahead of the game  by having your cards ready in time for Christmas, so it anyone would like to join us for next year please let me know and I will put you in touch with Margaret who keeps us all organised.

Just want to thank everyone who visited and left a comment,  and this is for Mary from Carolina, a Gritter is a big vehicle that spreads grit when the conditions are icy and snowy, you will have the same thing over in your neck of the woods, probably just by another name.

Take Care everyone and see you soon,

My word you have been busy creating these gorgeous festive cards. Thanks for joining in my challenge, I can see that you enjoyed making all three, they are brilliant. I love the sparkle medium one at the top, I don't have any of this and it always looks so beautiful on cards that I've seen. A fab job all round.
I saw the M&S ad yesterday and you're right, it is very touching but I had to laugh at the John Lewis ad, the expressions on all their faces were so funny.

Hi Kate
What a trio of festive joy. Three fab cards. You're a dab hand with the stencils and pastes.
Haven't seen the M&S ad yet but I'm in love with Buster.
Maybe Damian could try Milo with a trampoline?

Florence said...

What a treat! 3 super cards Kate. All so different. Lovely ideas. I went and checked out the John Lewis advert and there seems to be some sort of controversy going on now about it. Typical!! I still love the old Argos adverts. They always made me giggle.
Have a lovely evening.
Hugs Flo xx

You are on a roll with making sets of Christmas cards...soon you will have a great stash! Loved the sparkle of #1, pretty scene too. Lots of silvery sparkle on #2, and I love the way you've done the embossed background with the sweet little spray of pinecones tucked in the tartan plaid ribbon. Santa & his packhorse reindeer just made me smile...again, loving the tiny green trees on the bold red. What a trio of lovely and delightful cards! Enjoy your day. TFS & Hugs

Sandy said...

Beautifully done Kate -- of course I like the Santa the best - he makes me laugh and laughter is always the best medicine.
I don't think there is a "tickity boo" on my tea towel -- love how it sounds when I say it!!!!

Kate three great Christmas cards, love them all, you can't beat a bit of sparkle at Christmas time.
As for the adverts, you've picked my three favourites from this year so far.
Good to see our bosses got it right this year as the last couple of years haven't been great.

Enjoy the rest of your evening, hugs Erika. x

Wow Kate you have been busy. The first deer card is gorgeous. The second deer card is so pretty, and that Santa and reindeer card is delightful. Love them all.
