A Snippet and Rudolph Days




Morning Peeps, just popping in with this months Rudolph Days challenge share and also one for this weeks Snippets Playground.

My Rudolph share at the top is one of a batch of 50 cards made for a local accountant, all done and dusted some weeks back when crafting was less painful. I have to confess that although I do the odd wedding and Christmas order I don't do't go looking for them as I find it so repetitive and bore very quickly. The main image is an old Hero Arts stamp and the sentiment Penny Black.


My Playground share, a pretty simple make with minimal stamping as that remains problematic one armed, an oddment of pink DP, a die cut TL Butterfly, flowers, seam binding and a snippet for the tag which is a Penny Black stamp.


Many thanks for popping in today.

Both are gorgeous.
The first one is warm and girly and the other cool and classy. I could NEVER create so many of the same card - it would drive me nuts. Hats off to you and congrats on your commission.

Hope crafting is less painful for you VERY SOON.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Hi Brenda, what wonderful cards. The first is so beautiful with the lovely delicate colours and fabulous sentiment and your batch make of christmas cards has a perfect winter scene... a;though you must have had a lot of patience to make 50 of them. Thanks so much for joining in the challenge over at Rudolph Days. Take care and I hope the pain eases soon xx

Jane said...

Meravigliose CAS con questo timbro Hero Arts!!! Davvero stupende e piene di pace! ...Capisco però che fare tante card uguali sia molto noioso! Si perde tutto il piacere del craft! :)
La card per il Playground challenge è dolcissima, mi piacciono molto i colori e il romantico design! Bella farfalla e fiori stupendi! Sei davvero bravissima a fare queste splendide card con un braccio solo!! Hat off!

Linby said...

Another one of your fab scenes, this one is just so sweet, I like the way you made it look faraway (if you know what I mean!). Pretty floral card too. Lynn x

KT Fit Kitty said...

You have blown my mind, Brenda! I can't even imagine making 50 of the same card! I think the most I've made is 6 and that was when I first started stamping. I guess it's good that no one has commissioned me for anything - making multiples would drive me batty! Well done with these, Brenda, and your floral butterfly card is stunning!

Robin said...

Beautiful cards! I love the butterfly of course but your Christmas scene is gorgeous! Hugs, Robin

Greta said...

I adore the Christmas card & what a stunning BD card--beautifully feminine! I don't like making duplicate cards, either--I only do it for hubby's relatives at Christmas. Sorry your arm is still not cooperating with you, Brenda--hope it's better soon.

Valerija said...

Gorgeous cards. Love the winter scene on the Christmas cards and wonderful flowers and butterfly on the second one.
Great job!
Valerija xx

Jane Willis said...

Beautiful cards, and amazing that the second was made one armed! I share your feelings about mass producing cards, I've only ever done it for my own daughters' weddings.

Rainey's Craft Room said...

Two very pretty designs Brenda. I've made large orders like this before and they are very tedious towards the end, your scene is lovely though.

Well done to you Brenda on your production line of Christmas cards. I agree with what you say about when you have quite a few to make. I'm always relieved when I get to the point of handing them over. It's a beautiful tranquil scene that you've created and I like the subtle use of blue in the sky. Your first card is so pretty too. I love the colour and the layout of the flowers which work beautifully with the sentiment, such a lovely card. Sandra X

Paper Creations by Shirley said...

Oh my gosh Brenda, I could NOT make 50 of anything, I admire your stamina to create so many. Both designs are beautiful, I especially love the clean look of the top scene. Take good care, xxx

Gorgeous Christmas card Brenda, love the winter scene, but I know what you mean about getting bored, I often do a little batch of a design but don't seem to get past 6! Love the snippet card, so pretty.

Stunning Christmas card, such a lovely CAS design. I love the second one too, beautiful colours and it's got a real vintage feel. xx

Gerrina said...

Both so beautiful, but the top one is my favorite! And 50 of them; tjee that is a lot of work! Hope the pain will leave slowly and you can enjoy the stamping full again! Hugs, Gerrina

Shirley Chillman said...

Very brave of you to make 50 Brenda but it is a stunning CAS Christmas card.

So sorry to hear that stamping is a problem for you and I hope all gets better soon but the playground share is gorgeous also.

Beautiful cards. I love the scene you created on the Winter Wonderland card.

Donna Ellis said...

I know they are simple creations for you, Brenda, but they are lovely scenes of peace, with delicate, exquisite colors and technique. They are all the more endearing knowing they came from your heart and very wondrous imagination. Hoping two hands are soon bringing forth your artwork soon. Love, de
