Crafty Meraki night time Season’s Greetings

It is Tuesday, which means Christmas is only a couple of days away. Here in Norway we celebrate on the 24th. So yeah, Christmas is nearly upon us and I don’t think I’ve been less prepared than I am this year. Thankfully I had most of my Christmas cards made early, but a few last minute ones are made this year as well. Fully coloured panels seems to be how my last minute cards end up this year, because quick and easy doesn’t seem to happen when I have no time at all! Hahaha. The stamp set I have used here, by My Favorite Things, is a part of the Stacey Yacula collection and is called Christmas Cheer. I have masked the stamps together, but if you prefer die cuts, you can find the matching set here. As we are just past the darkest day of the year here, I decided on a night sky.

The panel is die cut using MFT’s Stitched Rectangle stax dies. There are other fun options as well, such as the Whimsical one. The text stamp is from the Flurry of Love stamp set and I used cardstock for that and the enamel dots to match the colour of the bunny’s fur.

Copics used: BV13, BV17, BV25, BV29, B0000, BV000, BV20, BV23, R22, R24, R29, E18, BG93, BG96, BG99, E97, E08, E19, E18, W1, W3, W5, T0, T1, T3, YR21, YR24, YR27, R30

Whimsy bunny Row

For Whimsy Stamps‘ December release I’ve made a slimline card using the Christmas Bunny Row extended stamp. This extended version is perfect for a slimline card. They do have one with fewer bunnies as well (here). I’ve kept it super simple and just coloured it up, embossed first with white embossing powder and then some white frantage to get some bigger chunks as well. The coloured panel was added to the card base using foam tape.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, N0, N1, N3, YG61, YG63, YG67, E41, E42, E43, E44, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, V000, BV000, BV01, BV02, R24, R59

RAM Letters to Santa

I have finally been able to sit down and make a few cards again. First one out is this adorable stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller. It is called Letters to Santa and I’ve coloured it up with my Copic markers.

The card itself is reasonable simple with a die cut main panel and some paper scraps die cut into various scraps for the cluster in the corner. The sentiment is from Papirdesign and most of the paper scraps are Maja Design papers.

Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, E79, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, C0, C1, C3, G28, G43, G46, YG63, BG99, B0000, BV20, BV23

Rainbow and bunny

I’ve made a reasonably simple card again. This time I’ve used a rainbow patterned background paper by Lawn Fawn together with a purple background paper by MFT Stamps. The wee bunny is also from MFT Stamps while the text stamp is by the Norwegian brand Mathia Design. Some enamel dots by Altenew and some foam tape for dimension and there we go!

Whimsy morning glory bunny

I have a layered card in purple and turquoise for you today as part of my projects for the March digital release at Whimsy Stamps. I’ve used Crissy’s Morning Glory Bunny.

The papers are by Lili of the Valley, butterfly dies by Rayher and my usual lace/ribbon combo along with some Altenew enamel dots and my own sentiments.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, G21, G24, G94, G99, BG23, BG57, BG78, V12, V22, V25, V28
