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

Another Christmas hippos card, yey! decided to keep the colours very plain and just add a subtle colour to the sky and then a dash of bright and bold red to the hat, cane and sentiment!

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?

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.
