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.

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:

Lotv bears building snowman

Lili of the Valley is working on yet another new Christmas release and it’s a great one! I simply had to colour up one of the stamps right away, with these bears building a snowman! Even though there is loads of white, I opted for a no-lines version of the stamp. Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas cards, so I suppose it was a bit of an obvious choice, but hey! When it looks great, why pick something else, right? hehehe

The decorations are kept simple with just a cluster of die cut scrap paper, some die cut snowflakes, one of Lili of the Valley’s own sentiments as well as some enamel dots.

And this marks the end of August. I am pleased I managed to do a card a day. There’ll be quite a few cards the next few months too, I am sure. Tomorrow is September, and I don’t think I am quite ready for autumn yet.

Lotv James in the snow

My favourite bear is definitely James of Lili of the Valley. He is super cute and I love to colour him up. This time I’ve opted to give him a green hat and scarf and I made a simple card from it. I used various dies to cut out smaller elements to make a little cluster on the opposite site and used a Norwegian sentiment by Kort og Godt as well as snowflakes from dies and chipboard.

Here is another photo of the card.

LotV bunny love

Time for another Lili of the Valley card! Their bunnies are the cutest, really! It was fun colouring up rather dreamy clouds for these love bunnies. I’ve kept the background pretty simple on this layered card with just a bit of lace and ribbon along with some heart and butterfly die cuts. The dies are from Memory Box, La-La Land Crafts and Rayher. The chipboard is by Snip Art.
