There are a few big stamps in the latest Picket Fence Studios (this and all links in this post are affiliate links) release and the Mistletoe Kisses is one of them. I’ve chosen to stamp it in the top left corner so that I could fit a big sentiment as well. I opted for Joyeux Noel from the stamp set with the same name. A few sequins from the Christmas Flurries embellishment jar were placed around the sentiment, and I stuck with my top left positioning when putting the coloured panel onto the card base as well.
I’m in the spirit of Christmas cards at the moment, so I have to share loads! Sorry, not sorry! Here is Elliot and Marcel making Snowfetti. It is from Purple Onion Designs’ Julian Charlton range. I think the stamp is super cool and tried something new: pencil colouring on a blue background. Fun! I’ve added extra snow and a fun border around. Love how the pencil colouring turned out, so don’t be surprised if you see more like it!
I have another Christmas card made. In fact, I think I’m going to try to make a Christmas card a week until Christmas. Anybody else up for trying the same? I’ve used the adorable Shop Tot by Mo’s Digital Pencil for this week’s Mo-make.
The background is made by running a stencil through my die cutting machine to emboss the paper. The stencil is by PFS and is called Snowball Fight (aff link). I’ve also used their connected circles for the frame. This is all raised with foam to make the coloured panel stay behind. A few snowflakes, a Make It Crafty chipboard and a Simon Says Stamp sentiment.
I love a good snowman stamp and this one is being hugged by his bunny and penguin friends. The stamp, by Purple Onion Designs, is called Sweet Snow Friends. How adorable is that? I love colouring it up, and this time I die cut the panel and put it off-centre on a dark green piece of background paper. The sentiment is a mix of a Gummiapan die cut (a few of them glued together for dimension) and a Mathia Design text stamp. A few Altenew dots to bring in the peach colour of the the colouring finished off the look.
I love making Christmas cards and try to make them all year around. Then, if something happens that prevent me from making loads in November and December, I will still have a fair few to send out at Christmas. So, needless to say, I’ve already made a start on this year’s cards already! Here is Rupert, he is making a snowman. I have paired him with the large mountains stamp, both from the Stacey Yacula collection over at Purple Onion Designs. I do love winter themed Christmas cards!
