Meet our Guest Ellen
I’m so pleased to introduce you today to Ellen from Scrapellen.  Ellen has kindly made two fabulous Cards to share with us today….
I can´t believe it´s November already…and christmas is right around the corner!;)Some time ago  I got a question from the lovely Zoe, if I would like to be a Guest Designer at Make it Crafty,  Of course I was honoured to, so thank you so much Zoe (and the rest of the MIC DT) for having me as your GD!  I got some cool images from Make It Crafty to work with, from the great new steampunk Santa images, 

these are called Steampunk house, Cheery Santa, Jolly Santa.

The sentiment-“Tee hee hoho” come together with the Cheery Santa image..!;)
I masked the images together to make a scene on a digi paper, and coloured it with Copics.:)
I also added some of these cool Gears Galore, and painted them with Dabber-Espresso, Silver, and a touch of white..tryed to make them look a little rusty!;) Love these Chipboard embellishments!!;)
I’ve also used the new christmas paper from Maja Design.
I’ve made a easelcard, with the beautiful sentiments from North Star Stamp inside.
And..all the edges are sewed with my machine;). it is…hope you like looking at the photos..LOL!;)

The trees are cut out from a Tim Holtz die-On the edge-“tree line”

I put on some 3d pillows to make them pop up, and added some snowmaker on them. It’s cold outside, you now!;))

Another Tim H., on the edge, die-Snow flurries on the top of the card.

    What an honor to be a guest designer!!! Congrats! Thanks for sharing the colors you used. Don’t you just love steampunk? You certainly did a fantastic job with it! People that don’t like it normally don’t do as well as those that understand it. Anyway, I love both of your cards!!! 🙂
