Magnolia – Christmas gift

I think I might be crazy. For some reason I decided to take part in a mini challenge where I am to make two Christmas cards each month this year. When Christmas finally comes around I guess I’ll have a mini mountain of cards I can send out, though…

At the start of the year I bought a few Magnolia stamps. I have even coloured up a fair few of them already! I decided to use this on one of the cards for January. I kept is really quite simple, with a reasonably plain Noor Design background paper, a Make It Crafty chipboard and a few candi on the side.

Santa’s helpers are here

On Wednesday it was snowing.

And snowing.

And snowing.

On Thursday it was raining, raining and stupidly windy.

Talk about having the Christmas spirit been and gone in a day! Thankfully it has a month to return! Hopefully some of you will get a bit of Christmas spirit with the card I am sharing on this Tiddly Fab Friday.

I’ve used Santa’s Helpers by Tiddly Inks and coloured it in with Copics. The papers are primarily by Maja Design and the sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad. I’ve also used some cheese cloth, white frantage, grey distress inks, white acrylic paint, embossing powder (Ranger).

We need another photo, right?

Wedding Season

Don’t you juse love weddings?! So far this year I’ve been had to make a handful of wedding cards and I love doing each one. This particular card as made with the request of matching a baby card as they were celebrating both events at the same. On the right side here you can see the baby card I made and if you click on it you will be taken to the post I wrote about that card.

This one is made with my favourite wedding image, from Tiddly Inks and as usual I’ve removed the names that were added at the bottom. It’s been coloured with Copic Markers and I’ve used various embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts, Martha Stewart, as well as some acrylic paint and cheese cloth.

Here is another photo from another angle:

White winter Wryn

Another Tiddly Inks Christmas card from me today. I used Winter Wryn again, and I am sticking to the same kind of theme I did when I last shared a card using this image. (You can have a look here if you’d like.) I went for a red outfit this time and a whiter card. It seemed like the perfect card to share today as I got featured for my other card over at Copic in the Craft Room. What an honour! I am so chuffed!

The dies are from Noor Design and Tim Holtz and everything is, as always, coloured in with Copics.

Krissy Christmas

Give me a W. Give me an O. Give me another O. What is that?! WOO! It’s Friday! Time to enjoy the weekend to the fullest. I plan to colour, catch up on TV series and just relax! Perfect!

Today we start a new anything goes challenge in the Art by Mi Ran Facebook group! The optional theme we are doing this month is “use a die cut”. I am glad it is not limited to just one though, or I would be stuck! Come along and play, won’t you?!

I decided to use Mi Ran’s super cute Krissy for my card, and of course I coloured her in with copics! I used various paper scraps which I painted with acrylic paint and I also used a snow pen by Rayher which, after ending up everywhere as the top flew off followed by its contents.., provided a nice texture. I used Martha Stewart punchers and the Noor Design tree die which I love! Apart from that I used a little card candy.
