Penguin tree

One of the cards I made in December and never got around to sharing is this one I made with the Mama Elephant Penguin Christmas Tree. Isn’t it fun?

It is another simple card where I’ve used one of MFT’s rectangle dies for the main panel, cut out some Memory Box snowflakes and added a premade sentiment from Simon Says Stamp (the CZ-collection) on foam tape over two of them.

Let’s have another photo of it:

Whimsy Reindeer in Training

It is time for another good bye now. I’m stepping down from the Whimsy Stamps DT as well. This autumn has simply thrown me off course too much so I want to take a step back and do more “just because” crafting. I will miss being on the team and its great ladies, especially the wonderful DT leader Wendy.

For my final project I’ve used Crissy’s Reindeer in Training. I know it is a bit late for Christmas cards, but I really wanted to use this stamp and this month has been crazy so I’ve been unable to get it done to share it until now. I quite enjoyed trying to draw in a little scene for it as well. It’s good to get a head start on the Christmas cards for next year anyway, I think! The sentiment is from this set.

Here is another photo of it.

And with that is wish you all a very happy new year. May 2021 bring you fun adventures and great memories!

Merry Wishes

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope you are able to spend some of the time with at least one of your loved ones in this difficult year.

Here I have used the Merry Wishes stamp set by MFT Stamps and coloured in the whole panel with my Copics. The card itself is kept simple, so I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Cheer (MFT also) set onto the coloured panel and then die cut it with a rectangle STAX frame (MFT) before using foam tape to attach it to the purple card base (MFT as well).

The stamps have been masked together. It can be a bit fiddly, but remember that you only need to cut out the part that is used for the masking. I tend to keep used masks together with the stamp set so I can easily reuse them another time. You can always cut out the rest of the mask another time if you want to use another part of the stamp for masking.

LotV Woodland Christmas

I do love winter scene Christmas cards and this is no exception. For this one I have used one of Lili of the Valley’s stamps called Wodland Christmas. I think it’s adorable and will definitely use it again next year! This year I made it for the only Christmas card swap I’ve taken part in.

I’ve made a simple card using one of the stitched rectangle dies from MFT Stamps together with a die cut sentiment by Mama Elephant and three enamel dots by Altenew. Don’t need any more than that, right?

Copics used: BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, G40, G21, G43, G46, YG67, R32, R35, R37, R39, B000, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, E41, E42, E43, E44, Y35, W0, W1, W3, W5

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.
