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.

A side on view as usual.

Aaaaand a close-up of the colouring!

22. Santa’s Helpers as a CAS card.

Oh my. Where has the week gone?! Thankfully I am now all done with my crafting before the holidays, but I have some cookies left to make and some presents left to buy so I have managed to save something for last minute this year, too, haha!

I have used Maja Design paper and an adorable Tiddly Inks image, Santa’s Helpers. As I’ve had such few green Christmas cards today, then that was the obvious choice. I’ve made a red glittery embossed greeting with a Norsk Stempelblad stamp.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E31, E34, E41, (greys) W2, W3, W5, W7, W9, (greens) YG61, YG63, YG67, YG99, (fur) C1, C3, (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (yellow) Y19, YR16, E08

17. Puppy with presents

This stamp is by Wild Rose Studio and it has been a long time since I coloured it up. It is quite an ordinary presents stamp, but I decided to colour it in with traditional Christmas colours and make it into a Christmas card.

The papers I’ve used are by Lemon Craft and the sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad. I really do love making clean and simple cards these days!

Copics used: + a black pen to add lines as a frame around the image.

16. Blue triangle box with snowman

After my co-worker challenged me to make the triangular shaped boxes, I’ve made a few more. This is the very first one of them that I made. She likes blue very much, so that was the obvious colour for the box. I’ve decorated it with various Noor Design dies, a Panduro snowman sticker, Norsk Stempelblad stamp, some twine and Craftwork Cards candi.

This is where you can open the box. You simply untie the string and open it up.

Here is a photo from the front of the box.

13. Christmas tags

Have you ever tried to make your own Christmas tags? These are the first I’ve tried making. Siv kindly made me some tag blanks that I could decorate and I’ve had fun doing it. It is a great way to use left over scrapping papers, that’s for sure.

 

The dies here are by Noor Design and the text on the red is from Maja Design paper and on the blue is a Norsk Stempelblad stamp. The red flowers are by Papirdesign.

 

The text die here is by Kaboks.

Here is another photo of all three together
