Sttiching Challenge #2 with Freepattern

Hallo Stitchers and Crafters :)

Welcome to our Stitching Challenge #2!!The Challenge Theme is a card or project using  this FREE Stitching pattern.

Challenge is closed!!

Christmas Bells

Have you ever stopped yourself from buying themed stencils because you felt they were to expensive to use for only one occasion  e.g christmas?  Well I do, and so when I saw the beautiful new Angel series from Marianne Design, I already had new ideas running around my head and so I experimented. :)

For the card I am sharing with you, I used the Marianne Design Craftables Angel CR1231, Joy! Crafts Border stencil 6002/0149, and a Stitching pattern of mine that was released in my Hobbydols book Nr. 7.

You can win this precut set in a Challenge on this Blog soon.  Don't forget to come back and check :)

Greetings Ann

Ann's Paper Art Blog Candy # 2

Candy's are fun, so here's a new one  :)
The prize this time is a Stitching and Stencil set.

Stencil Joy!Crafts 6002/2009
Wekabo Decoupage Sheet
Angel Stitchingpattern a731


My new Christmas Cards

With so many beautiful 3D sheets and Stencils out on sale at the moment, it wasn't hard creating these new Christmas Stitching patterns.

I love Wekabo's new purple themed images, as much as I love Marieke's Design new rusty colours, but even the traditionally coloured images by Yvonne Design  were a pleasure to work with.

From all the awesome Christmas stencils available at the moment, I finally decided to combine my Angel pattern with a Stencil from Joy! Crafts designed by Erica Fortgens.

These patterns can all be purchased via Ann's Paper Art Webshop

New August Patterns

I have to admit that with the heatwave that hit europe all of august, I really wasn't in the christmas mood at all, BUT I still managed to get some new Christmas patterns and cards made :)

I didn't make them all typical *christmassy* ones as I prefer patterns that can be used all year round.  Add a few christmas stickers, combine with  Christmas decoupage and there you have a christmas card :)

All these patterns can be purchased  Ann's Paper Art Webshop.




These christmas bells  are my favorite and  most challenging project this month.  The illustration was made by Dejan, a Serbian painter and illustrator.  There is more to come from us :)  I also had a play with some Stencils.  The die that I used on card a663 and this bell card is Nellie's Multiframes MFD028.  The flowers on card a664 and the bells  I made with her new Shape Dies -  Christmas Flowers SD004.  They are sooooooo tiny, but gorgeous and nice to work with. 

Thank you for stopping by and for your comments :)
