Polkadoodles snowman skiing

My first design team project of the year is one for Polkadoodles using their latest release, Frosty Smiles. It’s all about snowmen! Which is perfect really as we’ve had a white start to the year and we have definitely made time for playing in the snow. This particular snowman is out skiing!

The sentiment, stamped with Altenew ink, is from the Spring Rose layering stamp set.

Here is another photo of the card.

Lotv James in the forest snow

This is my second attempt at colouring in my own background. I stuck with various purples for my little forest scene. The adorable bear is by Lili of the Valley and I’m sure you’ve seen me use this stamps a few times in the past! It gets a bit of a different look with a drawn in background, though. I also added some snow to the ground as well as some falling snow. The brighter blue scarf and hat stands out nicely against the background.

The card itself is quite simple. I didn’t feel like it needed a lot added to it, so I simply used a stitched border die for the panel, a Norwegian Christmas sentiment in a dark purple and some semi-transparent sequins around it.

Birthday celebration

Time for a fun birthday card using a stamp by Stamping Bella. I opted for a layered card this time using Maja Design papers, my favourite lace, a bit of matching ribbon and some chipboard numbers. The edges have been painted white with acrylic paint.

Fox with presents

There’s be a lot of Christmas cards on the blog this month. In October and at the start of November I coloured up a few stamps, but I haven’t had time to make cards of them until recently. Hopefully I will have time to blog them all before Christmas, but as I don’t know how many coloured images I have laying around at the moment, it’s a bit hard to guess how many cards there’ll be!

For this one I’ve coloured up one of Lee Holland‘s stamps. This is in fact one of the very first stamps of his that I bought, but it’s taken a while to get it coloured up and onto a card! I’ve opted for my favourite blues, gave the card a wide border and used a chipboard from Make it Crafty which I coloured in to have a gradient effect. A few semi-transparent sequins scattered around and voila! card done!

Kid and Blue tit

I admit it, I had to google the name of the bird I tried to colour. I don’t know a lot of bird names in English. The last time I coloured up this Mo’s Digital Pencil image I opted for a robin, so I wanted something different and a blue tit fit the rest of my colouring quite well, I thought. The stamp is called Feed the Birds.

The background paper at the top is by Maja Design and the sentiment stamp is by Mama Elephant. The card stock is by MFT Stamps and so is at least one of two dies I used, possibly both.
