Baby It's Cold Outside

Good Morning and happy Wednesday. It's my turn to show you my second 'anything goes' piece for Country View Crafts. You may remember my resolution to be more organised and to make my cards early. Yeah well, moving swiftly along, I had some play time instead :-)

Just before Christmas I'd bought a Seth Apter ring binder. I'd decorated the outside but not done anything inside.

I started by applying some DecoArt white gesso with a credit card. Then I stencilled Fired Brick Distress Ink through a rose stencil. 
Time to stamp now - lots of Rubber Dance Christmas stamps.
Also some Portfolio pastels through a Tim Holtz stencil. I heated this with a heat gun to melt it a little.
Here are my romantic giraffes. The Kraft Core was cut, embossed, sanded, then stamped and embossed.
Every project needs a pair of romantic giraffes.
There we go, at least one page is now done.
There's still loads of time for you to join in with our 'anything goes' challenge, so please play along.

I'm also linking this to the Rubber Dance blue, red, and white colour challenge.

Have a fabulous week, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. This is great. Who needs to be organised? Play is much better! Hugs, Valerie

  2. What fun giraffes Sue, they are my son's fave animals...even as a grown man he still loves them. The heart ring works so well.Your folder is going to look great and there's still time for cards ;0) Hugs xxx

  3. The ring binder is a great idea--I used to have one but not a clue where it went.
