RAM Majestic Tree

For my second projects for the Rachelle Anne Miller design team this month I’ve opted to make a Christmas card! The stamp of my choice this time is called Majestic Tree (aff. link). I’ve coloured it all up with Copic Marker, used a die cut sentiment by Papirdesign and a stamped sentiment by Mathia Design. A few matching sequins and blue cardstock was my accent colour of choice today.

Did you see the video I added the other day? Where I coloured up this adorable little bear? If you didn’t, you can find it here.

Today I’m going to show you the card I made with said colouring, James in the Snow by Lili of the Valley. I used Maja Design background paper for a nice rich green panel and then cut the coloured panel into a smaller rectangle which was added off-centre with foam tape. A few snowflake chipboards and two die cut sentiments glued on top of each other was all I needed to finish off the look on this card. The die cut is from Papirdesign.

You will also find several other cards featuring the very same image on previous blog posts through the years. I have used it loads!

Colouring video: Lotv James in the Snow

It’s been a slow month on the blog. Life has taken over and I’ve hardly even looked at my cardmaking things and only coloured up one image the whole month. I do however have a new colouring video for you today, to hopefully mark my return into crafting again. It’s a long overdue video, really, as it features one of my absolute favourite stamps: James in the Snow by Lili of the Valley. I make more than one Christmas card with this image every single year and this year will be no exception.

I’ve coloured in a bit of snow and a purple hued background. The stamp itself has been coloured in a quick and simple way to show that it doesn’t have to be at all fancy to look pretty good. There is no audio for this video either, sorry.

The colours used for this video are: (brown) E41, E42, E43, E44 (green) YG63, YG67, G94, G99 (purple) V000, V20, V22, V25 (white) W0, W1, W3 (pink) RV63 (snow) B000, V000, V20 + sakura gelly roll 10

Feeding the birds with a dash of red

I’ve, once again, used the Feeding the Birds stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. This time I’ve cut it out by hand and used only very few colours. The card is made with items from various companies. The background stamp is by Simon Says Stamp, inked with Distress Oxide, the polaroid frame die is by MFT Stamps and the snowflakes by Hello Bluebird. A simple sentiment by Mama Elephant and some red and white baker’s twine finished off the card.

Winter hugs

It’s been a quiet week on the blog, but that’s because there’s been a colouring challenge on Instagram and I simply haven’t got the time to do both at the moment! That ended yesterday, though, so now I’m back with more cards!

Today’s card is another Christmas one. I’ve coloured up a stamp by Purple Onion Designs and kept the card simple apart from the cluster of die cuts and scraps at the top. The papers are mostly from various Maja Design collections which has been cut with dies from Whimsy Stamps, La-La Land Crafts and Memory Box, and the sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.
