Nonni's Xmas Card Challenge Reminder!

Hello crafting friends,

I am here to remind you that Nonni's Christmas card challeges are still running. There is one for cards where 'stamping' is the star of your card and one where we are asking you to use your stash.

My card today is an example of how to use your stash to make new cards. If you don't have many stamps, die cuts etc, you can hunt through cards that have been sent to you and re-arrange things. This is exactly what I have done for my card. Everything is from shop bought cards that I have been given in the past. I just got out the scissors and chopped things up, re-designed and came up with this:


The only new item is the sentiment that is from our sponsor for this challenge-Stamplorations

This challenge is open until Santa visits on Xmas Eve, so you have plenty of time to play along. And please visit Nonni's blog here to see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you x

  9. So beautifully clean, yet so festive and sparkly!
    I think it's great how you re-use elements from old shop bought cards!
    My thing is to collect buttons. Before I throw away clothes (I prefer giving them away to charity shops, but some clothes get so washed out and worn) I remove all buttons! I've got plenty in my stash!
