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.
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!
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.
Have you ever been to Paris? It’s a lovely city! I was there nearly 18 years ago and feel I am definitely due another trip back there. The fun thing about today’s card is that the day we went to The Eiffel Tower it raining and we got there after sunset. We were lucky they even let us up that evening because of the weather. They were contemplating shutting it down because of the thunder in the distance. The view is wonderful, even in the rain.
Today it’s time for my second Rachelle Anne Miller project of the month and I used her Paris stamp for it. I decided to go with pastel colours and daylight for this, a complete contrast to my own rainy experience. The stamp is printed out in a no-line version and I used Copic markers to colour it up. I have about 1/4″ space around the image, which is on foam tape and then more foam tape for the sentiment. The sentiment means “greetings from me to you”. The Hello is a die cut from Altenew.
Today marks the day for my final post for the Crafty Meraki DT. I have finally been able to make a card with one of the stamps I selected before I started on the team and I went all pink for a change! I admit I am looking forward to having some more time to create stuff that is not DT work (aka with a deadline), it’s not been much of that lately with everything else going on. A lot has happened the past couple of months, but hopefully things will settle a bit soon! I might even have a chance at tidying up my desk again!
It’s been a while since I used Altenew, so I had fun colouring up one of their stamps again. This one is called Dotted Blooms and I used the sentiment from that set as well. It has quite a few good sentiments! The enamel dots are Altenew as well, whereas the ink for the sentiment is by Pinkfresh and is called Regal Kiss.
Thanks for having me, Crafty Meraki, and I look forward to seeing what fun products you might release next!
