Zig Zag Village

Hi Everyone, my apologies for my posts far and wide apart, but I can't believe I'm so busy. Anyhow, I saw this Zig Zag Village . It features this beautiful folding Village by Marji Roy and I just had to have it.  You can get it Here or Here.

This is my version, cut on the Silhouette Cameo.
card - Crafters Companion Centura Pearl
red card - stash
wreaths - cut on the Cameo, coloured with
 Spectrum Noir Markers, then I clear heat embossed them to give shine.
The church windows were also coloured with the SN markers.
vellum was added behind each window and door.
 (there is another file where window features are included in the file, but I didn't see that until I had bought this, oh! well. I still love it though.)

The village is cut and able to be folded flat to be sent as a card, but as I have sent all my cards, I decided to make it as large as I could (9 inches tall) to have it as a decoration, it has wonderful dimension. I am thrilled silly with it and the reactions have been great with visitors too.

 I'll show you the lit versions first, with battery tealights. 
Sorry about the photo quality, I took it without flash at night.


a closer look

now here it is in the day, you can see the depth it has in the zigzag shape.

Snowman

Hi Everyone, I thought I had better blog a Christmas card I have done. I was so lucky this year, in my clearing out I had found about 50 cards I have done over the years, some MANY years ago, I had made some for challenges etc this year and had only to make about 10ish to get all of them finished written and posted. I suppose clearing out is a good thing ay?

Anyhow onto my card. I saw it while all the files were reduced on Sil store so decided to buy it for my 1 year old Great, Great Nieces card. I also cut the insert and added a sentiment in the Sil program, but forgot to take a photo of it.

Snowman - Lori Whitlock
card nose - Lidl
face - cross hatched card
hat - First Edition
all cut on the Cameo
googly eyes - stash
glitter - Stickles

Christmas stocking

Hi Everyone, at last a post from me and a late one again, with apologies to my Teamies for
https://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/
I had this file a while ago, as we have Great Nieces and Nephews who we rarely see, but I always give money for Christmas, not good, but as I haven't a clue what they want or need this is what I do. Anyway, I usually have some sort of holder for the money and this year this is what I chose. Easy and quick to put together so I can get other things done as well.
svg file -  Printable Cuttables Creatables - Stocking Gift card holder
cut with the Silhouette Cameo
card from stash
glitter adhesive paper - The Range



I'll catch up with posts and you all asap.

Winners!

Hi Everyone, my DT card today is for -


I have a few favourite artists and tried to put together (very quickly because of our circumstances at the moment) something from them, then I came across "Banksy"  a highly controversial artist, but as things are, at the moment, with us, this quote rung true, so I thought it would be perfect. If you think you don't know him, maybe you saw him on the news or an article about one of his paintings that someone bought for a £1 million and it Shredded in the sale room.

Banksy – I'll never quit on this love for Amber. It has destroyed me but I'm still here. My dreams!! 

I believe he was either speaking about the painting below or the painting became out of the quote? I'm not sure, and, as he is anonymous? I'm not sure anyone is.


This is my version of
I thought the card would be good for a Congratulations/Exams card, 
what do you think?
