Winter love

Crumbs, I almost missed joining in over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge this week. A quick rummage through some Christmas images and I found a GorJuss girls twisted pyramage topper I'd assembled ages ago, still not sure about 'mouthless' images though:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card blank

- plain SU 'Crumb Cake' backing card from the snippets folder

- patterned 'plaid' backing paper from LOTV's 'Winter Wishes' paper pad

- the assembled topper plus sentiment, from a GorJuss Girls kit

- a couple of sparkly 'crystal' snowflakes on either end of the sentiment just to 'bling' it up a bit

This week's theme at Hazel's is 'make it square or include a square on your creation'. I went for broke, square card, squares in the patterned paper - and of course the image is made up of pyramaged squares :)

This is also for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for April, where it's always anything goes.

I know I've shown this tip before, but for those who wonder how I often know the SU name of a card stock snippet:
It's a swatch of 2" squares of card stock with descriptive labels on the back which is really helpful when picking plain colours to go with patterned papers - the main reason I made it in the first place. Me not totally daft :)



  1. Gorgeous this Gorjuss girl
    have a lovely weekend
    hugs Tamara

  2. Di Love your card!! gorgeous.
    Also thanks so much for your help re; my blog pics.Happy Easter x

  3. You not daft AT ALL mate!

    I'm with you on the mouthless images, but I quite like Gorjuss Girls - NOT Magnolias though.

    I really like this twisted pyramage card.

    Happy Easter xxxxx

  4. I know what you mean about mouthless images, I only own one ( used earlier in the week!!) which my "helpful" youngest Son has since drawn a mouth on and she looks so much better!! However in spite of having no mouth, your card is actually very lovely and she looks quite ethereal without one!! Have a lovely weekend xx

  5. Love your twister card, I only have one Gorjuss girl stamp bought in order to paper piece. Now Miss do I take it that you have every single colour on your swatch pad? Hugs Mrs A.

  6. P.s. have you seen? Hank, Martin, Marcl nd Norm are to be remote Uncles?!!! Hugs Mrs A.

  7. What a brilliant idea...I did wonder how you always knew the colour!

    Your card is so cool. Not sure about the mouthless faces either but I have a friend who draws a mouth on!!! lol
    I have not tried those pyramidge type cards yet...but did buy a kit in far I am hoarding it!!!

  8. How did you do that with the image? It's SUPER cool and I would love to try. :) Your card is just stunning. -Alycia

  9. You've reminded me that I have quite a few Gorjuss bits like that in my Christmas box - about time I used them - love what you've done. Thanks for entering both of my CHNC challenges with your lovely card - hope to see you again soon. x

  10. What a sweet card, and I love the 3D look in spite of my not caring much for the mouthless/faceless images either! Great tip about the cardstock colors too!

  11. Oh fabulous card Di ....gorjess image and l like the twist on the decoupage and backing papers x

  12. I hope they are not sausage roll crumbs, lol, oh yes I remember your tales.
    Fabulous card, you should draw a mouth, I would if I had any images without a proper face.Love the pyramage.
    Happy Easter to you my lovely friend.
