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.

 

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 the bear is watching the snow fall

Here you can see the second Christmas card I made for March. This means I am still on track for two a month this year, phew! Barely made it with this one as well. I guess I will try to do better in April and start a bit earlier.  At least, I still had snow when I made this.. not sure I will manage to make anything once tempratures start realising summer is only a couple of months away! Oh well, I’ll try!

I went with a Lili of the Valley bear. This is possibly my very favourite bear and I love his different poses. His name is James, by the way, if you didn’t know. Lili of the Valley was one of the first stamp brands I started using, and even though they have stopped selling their rubber stamps, I still have mine from when I first got them in 2011! I’m glad they’re still doing digital stamps, as they’re great!

I’ve used Noor Design and Maja Design paper, a bit of acrylic paint and cheesecloth as well as Baker’s Twine, a Kort og Godt charm and some candi. Those are all high on my list of things I like to use to make Christmas cards.

Here is another photo where the card is laying down flat:

Winter Molli

So, remember I said yes to making two Christmas cards for each month this year? I’m actually still on track. I finished this card in the evening on the 28th February, hahaha! I love adding a snowy effect to the winter themed cards using the acrylic paint. Previously I used to love tearing on the edges, but this is far less dusty!

The stamp is by La La Land Crafts and is called Winter Molli, and so is the tree die. Other products are papers from Maja Design, acrylic paint, Memory Box snowflakes, Baker’s Twine, Kort og Godt charm and cheese cloth.

And the side on view of the card.

Winter hugs

It is time for some mid-way inspiration at Copic Marker Norge and this is my contribution. We are trying something new for our challenges: playing with moodboards! Winter and chill and forest and snow is how I interpreted the moodboard.

I decided on a Ching-Chou Kuik image which I coloured in with Copics. The papers are Maja Design and I think they are my all time favourites. I love them!

Another photo from a different angle where it is easier to see the layers.
