Penguin and polar bear Christmas

I’ve been looking at the adorable penguin stamps by Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps for a while and this month I finally got around to purchasing a few of them. Two of them have made their way onto cards so far and today I will show you the first one of them.

The card is made using various Maja Design paper and my favourite Go Kreate dies. The text stamp is by Norsk Stempelblad and apart from painting the edges white and using a bit of twine and lace, I’ve kept the card free of embellishments.

Once again time prevents me from adding the colours, but I’ve mostly used Ns, low Ws and R20s.

From tomorrow I should be able to get the posts up a bit earlier in the day again. This is what happens when you don’t have time to schedule up any, and write them all up on the day they go live! For this card I’ve used stamps from MFT Stamps, paper by Maja Design and a Papirdesign text stamp. Simple, but fun card!

I haven’t really got the time to list all the Copic Markers I used today, but if there’s a combination you’d like to know, just ask me!

Christmas tags with penguins

I made some Christmas tags for Hobbykunst the week I had my colouring demo there. I’ve used La-La Land Crafts tags, Maja Design papers, penguins from MFT Stamps and text stamps by Huldra Designstudio.

The first one is in wintery blues with the text Hello Winter

This red one is with the text Merry Christmas.

And here is a photo of the two of them together

YNS: Happy Brrr-thday

It is time for another post as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. As I wrote in my first post, I’m going to make all three projects in ways that are, at least in my opinion, rather typical for me. So this one is with a clean and simple style that includes smaller stamps, distress oxide ink and bright colours. I have in fact made two matching cards. The first one has a darker grey background.

The second card I made with this stamp set has a lighter coloured grey background and the distressed background goes vertically across the middle.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, RV00, RV09, RV52, RV55, RV69, Y11, Y13, Y38, YR09, E41, E42, E43, E44

Winter Wonderland
