LLLC: Santa’s Helper Baby Luka

Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas, so of course one of the new release cards had to be blue! I used the cute Santa’s Helper Baby Luka with some Maja Design Paper, distress inks and Copics with a dash of white acrylic paint. La-La Land Crafts has some really super new Christmas products and you can see which ones I used at the bottom of the post.

LLLC: Deck the Halls

Ok, so I am a little bit late to the party this time. Life took a rather unexpected turn a couple of weeks ago leaving me in a bit of a daze and all projects were put on hold until I felt like doing anything with it. All my card making things were as they were on the table and the floor and although I had completed a few cards for the new release, I never got a chance to blog about them. Until now.

La-La Land Crafts had the most adorable Christmas release out this month. I love the hippos so much. Who doesn’t need Christmas hippos, right?! They have some cute other stamps, too, and I’ll show some of those in posts the coming days along with some really cool dies. Besides, we all know by now that I love Christmas, right?

Christmas is less than half a year away

So apparently June is nearly over. I’ve just finished my two Christmas cards for the month, phew, and the hot temperatures are back. A slightly awkward mix, I know! I can’t believe how fast this month has passed, but oh well. Let’s have a look at that card. It is very plain and I’ve used a Mo’s Digital Pencil image together with a sentiment stamp from Norsk Stempelblad.

Aaaaand a close-up of the colouring!

James Bear with Snowman

Here is my second Christmas card for May. As the first one was a CAS card, I’ve made this one a layered one. I guess I should get started on my Christmas cards for June soon!

I’ve used another Lili of the Valley stamp for this. The papers are mostly Maja Design and the chipboard is from Make it Crafty.

 

Copics used: (background) B32, (black) W5, W7, W9, (white) C0, C1, C3, (bear) E41, E42, E43, E44, (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67

James bear with Christmas tree

30 degress Celcius and I was making Christmas cards to make sure I finished my two for May in time. It felt wrong, hahaha.

I used a stamp from Lili of the Valley. I do love James Bear! As I wanted to keep the card simple, I just cut strips of card stocks from some I had left over. I made sure to do random colours. Then I clued them all together diagonally across the card base, but made sure to keep two of the corners free. I then cut off whatever was outside the card base, typed up a sentiment, coloured in the background layer of the Make It Crafty chipboard and voila, the card was done!

Copics used: (fur) E71, E74, E77, (tree) YG13, YG61, YG63, YG67, (red) R22, R24, R27, R39, (yellow) Y13, Y19, Y38, (grey) W1, W3, (sky) B32
