Rudolph Day in May

It's that time of the month again....25th.....
which means it's time to make a couple of cards for Rudolph Day Challenge,
and 52 CCT (christmas card throwdown)

Here's what I made using the new In Colours from Stampin' Up!.
Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron on Naturals Ivory Card

I tried a shaped card using the Circle Framelits,
made a circle frame, and made up a little scene

I inked some areas with a sponge dauber,
fussy cut house and tree,
and added seam binding ribbon

Same die, different shape slightly

Tried a wreath with Painted Petals.....
didn't turn out as good as I'd imagined (as usual!)

So I added some punched Itty Flowers from snippets of card.
I love how I can stamp some of the Painted Petals and punch them out.

Added a bow with a snippet of ribbon,
and seeing as I used lots more snippets,
I'll pop over to the Snippets Playground, as I haven't been to play for aaaaaages,
and there's an awesome prize to win ;)

Happy Bank Holiday Monday


  1. Hi Lesley,
    what really great shaped Rudolf creations.
    Wonderful scene on the first, and a great flower wreath on the second.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Two fabulous cards Lesley, love the scene on the first one and glad to see that you were satisfied with the second in the end, great wreath.

  5. Clever use of the big scalloped circle for your base card. I like the circle frame with the little scene behind it, and the added flowers give some nice dimension to the wreath. Kate x

  6. How sweet are these pretty little shaped cards Lesley! Very clever designs! Hazel xx

  7. Great assortrment of Christmas cards. You are well on your way to being ready or Christmas!
    Your wreaths are lovely!

    Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge.

  8. Wow, Lesley! These are both gorgeous!. Your finished wreath looks brilliant and I love the little scene!

  9. Great cards Lesley. Love that first one. Such a cute idea.
    Well done.

  10. Two very adorable cards, and while I'm loving your 'scene' card, with the frame detail, I also very much like the wreath. It looks very arty & watercolor-y (is that a word?). It's very cheery with the bright colors, and you did a great job with it. Not sure why you didn't like it, but I surely do. The big red bow did add in a lot of emphasis, and it's a grand card. TFS & Hugs

  11. Lovely cards Lesley! And I think the wreth card turned out great!

  13. Two lovely cards, love the scene one but the wreath is my favourite


  14. Oh wow! Both cards are just lovely - I do like the circular shape. Your Christmas scene is so pretty and I love the soft pretty bow. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  15. These are great! I love the new SU colours! Great shapes too! I was trying to pick a favourite but I like them both!

  16. très charmante création Lesley, originale et très sympa, merci de jouer avec nous chez 52CCT, biz

  17. The scalloped circles give a fun touch to both of your cards. Thanks for sharing your work with us at 52CCT.
