Fox with presents

There’s be a lot of Christmas cards on the blog this month. In October and at the start of November I coloured up a few stamps, but I haven’t had time to make cards of them until recently. Hopefully I will have time to blog them all before Christmas, but as I don’t know how many coloured images I have laying around at the moment, it’s a bit hard to guess how many cards there’ll be!

For this one I’ve coloured up one of Lee Holland‘s stamps. This is in fact one of the very first stamps of his that I bought, but it’s taken a while to get it coloured up and onto a card! I’ve opted for my favourite blues, gave the card a wide border and used a chipboard from Make it Crafty which I coloured in to have a gradient effect. A few semi-transparent sequins scattered around and voila! card done!

Copics used: B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, W0, W1, W3, T0, T1, T3, YR15, E97, E08, E19, E18, R32, R35, R39, N3, N5, N7, N9, YG61, YG63, YG67, G43, G46, E74, E79, Y32, Y38

I have another card made using pencils on kraft today. This time the image is by Lee Holland and I’ve used Prismacolor Premier again to colour it up. I wanted the card reasonably simple, but with a fair bit of white, so I cut the panel down to pretty much a square and found some twine. Thankfully I had some that matched very well and I tied on a charm by Tim Holtz that I’ve had forever. A Mathia Design sentiment embossed onto black card stock and three enamel dots from Altenew finished off my card.

Dragon and snowdrop

I have coloured up a few of Lee Holland‘s adorable images this year, but I think this might be the first time one of them has made its way onto a card. It would work as both a birthday card and a Christmas card (well, and encouragement and friendship cards), but in the end I opted to make a birthday card out of it by using a Papirdesign sentiment. I kept the whole thing quite simple. The stamp was coloured up using Prismacolor pencils.
