CCM #58 Use It Three Times

Our final challenge of the year at Crafty Cardmakers is for you to ‘Use It three Times’, and for my interpretation I stamped the same image three times and coloured it three different colourways and placed it on identically designed cards but with three different combinations of backing papers.


We are sponsored for the final time at Crafty Cardmakers by the lovely Joanna Sheen, to the tune of £10.

CCM 58 1

Most of my BPs are Basic Grey, with the exception of the softer pink card which are all printed from the Polka Doodles Magical Winter CD. My image comes from Adam Pescott and was free with Card Making and Papercraft. The snow is Shaved Ice and the glitter highlights are a sparkly glitter glue, and the little metal snowmen have been in my stash for a few years! I blinged up the two first snowflake corners with Spray and Sparkle from Crafters Companion, but the one on the third card was cut from glitter paper.

So what’s your favourite, mine is the final card as I think the papers match the dogs which I am calling Scotties but I feel sure someone will correct me and tell me that in fact they are a different breed entirely, lol.

Love your cards and the stamp is gorgeous and you have shown us some great variations on the colouring and DP > I also prefer the last one with the tartan and as far as I know they are " Scotties " that's what I call them anyway !
