Winter Wonderland

LLLC: Cozy Christmas

Second day of the release week at La-La Land Crafts and today I wanted to show you this awesome moose. I’ve named him Chris, because… you know… Chris Moose. Yup, my humour is terrible and I don’t care! Anyway, back to the card at hand! I’ve used lots of the new goodies and they’re all linked below. This time I went for a cold winter themed card and the snowflakes stencil is just perfect for it! You need to have it, really!

Stamps:
Cozy Christmas clear stamps
Happiest of Holidays clear stamp

Stencil:
It’s snowing

Dies:
Reindeer Head
Curved Pocket
Jingle Bells Wreath
Long Flags:
Merry Christmas

Copics used: (moose) E41, E42, E43, E70, E71, E74, E77, (outfit) W1, W3, W5, B91, B93, B95, B97, (cup) B32, B34, B37

Huldra snowman

I got invited to a crafting retreat this autumn quite last minute and this is one of the cards I made there. One of the other ladies there inspired this card as she’d made a beautiful mosaic background with leftover green papers. I simply had to lift the idea and made a card of my own with the same technique. I really quite like it!

Helt i siste liten fikk jeg en invitasjon til Hønetreffet som arrangeres årlig på Hønefoss, og jeg takket selvfølgelig ja! En produktiv halvannen dag var resultatet, og der ble jeg også spesielt inspirert av et kort som en annen treffdeltager (arrangøren) lagde. Hennes var grønt, med restepapir, mens jeg gikk for mine vanlige vinterfarger.  Jeg hadde jo ikke brukt noe som helst papir så langt, så da var det å skjære av striper på nye ark, og jeg er kjempefornøyd med resultatet, så det kan fort komme flere kort med mosaikkbakgrunn fra meg!

The papers are by Maja Design and Papirdesign, and the stamps are both from Huldra Designstudio. I love the sentiment. It reads: A snowflake is the butterfly of winter.

Begge stemplene er fra Huldra Designstudio og jeg synes tekststempelet er veldig fint! The papers are from Maja Design og Papirdesign.

Copics used: B91, B93, B95, B97, C1, C3, C5, R00, R20, E71, E74, E77

LLLC: Hippo Holidays CAS

Yes, that’s right, another Clean and Simple card from me! This time I’ve used the Hippo Holidays clear stamp set from La-La Land Crafts.

I’ve used clear embossing powder on the background stamp set, which gave the stars a slightly darker grey look, and I took the word wishes from one of the sentiments and combined it with the Christmas word die. You can find links to all the products below!

As you can see I have used one of the sentiment stamps inside as well, added a wee candy cane and then the filigree Christmas tree in the same colours as on the front.

Stamps:
Hippo Holidays clear stamp
Shine Bright background stamp

Dies:
Filigree Christmas Tree
Merry Christmas
Star Wreath

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, R22, R24, R39, R89

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.
