Rachelle Anne Miller has a new release on the way and it’s great as usual! It contains four new stamps and a scene creator. As the scene creator set contains penguins I quickly decided that had to be my first project this month! I made a reasonably quick card though as life has gotten a bit in the way the past week or two. I still managed to make a little scene and just added a sentiment stamp for the finished card.
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:
I looked at my phone this morning and it said “October”. I’m not sure I’m ready for that. Don’t get me wrong, I love the beautifully coloured trees, the fresh wind and the non-guilty hot-chocolate moments with a blanket because it’s not too warm for it anymore, but still. Winter is just a tad bit too close. That also means Christmas is coming closer. Are you ready? Have you started on your cards? Mine are actually mostly done! And I have another one to show you today.
A new month also means a new Whimsy Stamps release! I’ve played with one of the new digital stamps. It has a penguin AND a polar bear. Doesn’t get much better than that, right? You can find it here. I didn’t use any dies this time as I cut the coloured panel and then I just tore across the top so I could have some background paper peeking through, but if you prefer dies then the Slimline card builder die so work well for this.
Copics ued: (red) R22, R24, R27, R29, R59, R89, (dark grey) N3, N5, N7, N9, (light grey, penguin – hat – ground) N0, N1, N3, (orange) Y32, Y35, Y38, E97, (polar bear) W0, W1, W2, W3, (paw) E41, E42, E43,
I have another card to share with that I made with one of the new digital stamps available at Lili of the Valley. The stamp is called Penguin Family. I opted for something different this time and coloured in a semi-circular background behind the penguins with a hard edge to said semi-circle.
The card itself is kept simple by using stitched rectangle die for the panel and then I added some twine and one of the Christmas Topper sentiments. I cut out the sentiment by hand and then made a whole in it before attaching it to the twine. The whole coloured panel with the twine was put on a red card base.
Copics used: E41, E42, E43, BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, R32, R35, R37, R39, YR04, YR09, aaaand I admit I don’t remember the combo for the sky… it might have been BG10, B000, B91, B93.
Christmas is less than half a year away, so it’s time to start making those Christmas cards unless you want to make them all at once last minute! I’ve used my Pristmacolor pencils to colour up this adorable penguin by Whimsy Stamps. The Penguin Chocolate surprise stamp is available as both digital and rubber stamp.
I’ve embossed a Norwegian sentiment which means Christmas greetings for the whole family. A couple of transparent dots and a bit of matching paper and that was my card done. I do love the look of pencils on kraft!
