Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 23 December 2016

Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL".

This week the Design Team have been given the topic of "anything goes".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Winter Warmth".  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers.

The backing papers are from my stash.

Christmas Bookfolding

 Here is a bookfolding project I have made for a friend for Christmas.
 For the front, back and inside images I went straight to one of my Debbi Moore CDs - Victorian Christmas.
 For the actual bookfolding pattern I used my Peerless Designs Cd4 (Christmas).  I loved the script used for the word "Christmas".
This is what the book looks like finished with some decoration.

I love doing bookfolding but unfortunately I can't do much these days as I can't find books thick enough for the most of the patterns.  I've tried so many charity shops but I can get 300-400 pages but no higher.  It's sad as it so therapeutic to do and the end result looks lovely when all finished off.

I am entering this bookfolding project into the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes
Come and Get It - Christmas
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday - Anything goes
Penny's Paper Challenge - Anything goes
The Crafty Addicts - Anything goes/let it snow
Inspiration Destination - Anything goes
Creative Craft Cottage - Anything goes
CRAFT - Anything goes

Some more Christmas cards

 Here are some more Christmas cards I have made this year.
 We all seem to go to favourite CDs to make our cards.
 For me my two favourite Christmas CDs are from Debbi Moore - Nativity and Santa Claus 2.
 They are such easy to use CDs and they don't need much to make lovely cards.
For all of the cards they have been decoupaged and decorated with various items like die-cut poinsettias, die-cut greenery, pearls, gems, Stamps by Chloe stamped sprig and pom-pom decoration (where some was also cut off to make snowballs).

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut Patterned Papers December Challenge - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create - Holiday happiness
The Crazy Challenge - Everything goes
Love to Scrap - Anything goes

Debbi Moore CDs to the rescue

This year out came my Debbi Moore Nativity and Santa Claus II CDs to make some of my Christmas cards.

I love the Santa CD as he is a nice proper looking Santa.


Then again I love the images on the Nativity CD.  It's all too easy to forget what Christmas is about.

I have kept the card quite simple (a) because of the cost of postage and (b) because I wanted the stunning images to be the focal point of these cards.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
