Gufi a Natale per il NBUS challenge

... Dopo le meraviglie di mia nipote, mi vergogno un po' a fare un post per questa mia card... Oltre alla mia craft room, Aurora si è presa anche la mia ispirazione!! :D LOL ... Però voglio partecipare ugualmente all'annuale NBUS Challenge di darnell, con un timbro di Immagination Craft che ho comprato tempo fa e che non avevo mai usato. Un timbro natalizio, quindi metto da parte questa card per il futuro :D
Voglio anche partecipare ad altri callenge, tra i quali il Rudolph Day's challenge di Agosto e siccome ho usato (come sempre...) degli "snippets", al Pixie's Crafty Workshop#244.
 
Ho timbrato su un avanzo di cartoncino bianco e ho embossato con polvere color oro (scelta probabilmente sbagliata, almeno per i gufi...). Ho colorato con un mix di Graph'it markers e di marker metallizzati + una penna gel bianca per i cappelli dei gufi e la neve; sugli occhi dei gufi ho messo del Glossy accents.
Ho embossato parzialmente il cartoncino rosso (EF Sizzix-Woodgrain#3) dopo averlo tagliato con Sizzix Bigz XL-Card_Ornate.
Da un avanzo di cartoncino marrone, embossato con la stessa EF della base, ho ricavato la striscia per l'interno e il piccolo bigliettino piegato a metà, sul quale ho timbrato la scritta bianca.
Ho ritagliato e assemblato l'immagine con il foam biadesivo. Ho usato un avanzo di foam glitterato color oro (snippets che mi ha lasciato Aurora con la sua ultima card...) per i fiocchi di neve piccoli, tagliati con un punch, mentre il gran fiocco di neve color kraft è il riciclo di un pezzo di cartone spesso preso da una scatola (fustella Sizzix Originals- Snowflakes). Anche le foglie di agrifoglio sono ricavate da una scatola di cartone spesso (fustella Sizzix Originals Holly and berries). Ho messo degli stickers adesivi sui fiocchi di neve. L'albero all'interno è recuperato da un nastro decorativo.

Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

I am always in awe of the incredible way you manage to recycle ordinary every-day items most of us throw away! You have such a keen eye for design too, and I think it's just genius how you added the sentiment with that little flap!! It reminds me I have a very old punch that makes file folders, and I may have to CASE that idea! I love these little hooters, all ready for Christmas with their red hats and sparkly snowflakes!!

Ciao Alice,

Una veramente bella cartolina di Natale, Robin bella immagine.

Ho pensato di offrire una spiegazione, perché mi mancano alcuni post e brevi commenti, e perché la maggior parte del lavoro che ho sul mio blog non è nuova.

Ho spiegato ai miei amici inglesi, così intenzione di provare in italiano. Lottando con SM per un lungo tempo e ora è peggio, il mio braccio sinistro non funziona troppo bene in modo da utilizzare il computer e fare arte è difficile.

Spero che tu capisca.

Grazie per essere in a Penny Black and More e Stampaggio Sensations.

This is a lovely card. I love the embossed wood grain paper behind your images. It looks great. Owls are so in style now and it is cool to see these two together on your Xmas card.
Thanks for taking part in the Aug Rudolph Days Challenge.

Hello, my dear Alice! This is soooo cute! I love the owls! I think the gold embossing makes them look more festive - I like it! Such a gorgeous Christmas card and I love the wood-grain embossing! Such a cute way to include the sentiment like that! I love the die-cut edge on the bottom of the card and the inside looks awesome as well! I love all of your embellishments! I don't think you have lost your mojo at all, my friend, but I have gone through the same feeling myself a few times and it takes some of the fun out of it. Hang in there and it will come back!

Gorgeous!! Nothing to be ashamed of here my friend, this card is beautiful and fun and super creative! The bark texture was genius, what a great bit for your owl scene. I so adore the little itty bitty card on your card, made me smile!! I've been going on my walks super early in hopes of catching sight of an owl, but so far no luck. sending hugs :)

Mrs A. ha detto...

Love those owls and gosh what super colours are in the card. So much added and I love the addition of the notelet at the bottom. Norm says Hello and Thankyou for following all his exploits over the past month and leaving him such nice comments. He is really pleased that he has a fan base. He is looking forward to having a nice lie in of a morning now and not having to race through his breakfast in order to look through his photos and then right his post up for the day. Hugs Mrs A and hugs also from Norm.

Pia S ha detto...

Nice to see you create again. Your card has lovely layers and a dimensional and textured feel. The folded piece with the sentiment inside along with the kraft snowflake with a colored smaller one inside are really great details. I think the owls suit their feathers in gold, the eyes really pop with the glossy accent. You did great!!

NGCARDS ha detto...

A fantastic festive creation! Those owls look great! Thanks for playing at Creative Inspirations this fortnight! xxx

Asha ha detto...
