Whimsy Reindeer in Training

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.

Here is another photo of it.

And with that is wish you all a very happy new year. May 2021 bring you fun adventures and great memories!

Polkadoodles delivery time

I have another card with a drawn in background. This time I opted for a different kind of trees, but kept it pretty simple. A little at a time, right? 🙂 This was used with an adorable stamp by Polkadoodles called Delivery Time. I am quite enjoying making little winter scenes at the moment and this was no exception. There will be a video coming soon showing how I coloured this one up, so check back next week!

Lotv James in the forest snow

This is my second attempt at colouring in my own background. I stuck with various purples for my little forest scene. The adorable bear is by Lili of the Valley and I’m sure you’ve seen me use this stamps a few times in the past! It gets a bit of a different look with a drawn in background, though. I also added some snow to the ground as well as some falling snow. The brighter blue scarf and hat stands out nicely against the background.

The card itself is quite simple. I didn’t feel like it needed a lot added to it, so I simply used a stitched border die for the panel, a Norwegian Christmas sentiment in a dark purple and some semi-transparent sequins around it.

Whimsy Autumn Swing

There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps again and this time I’ve used Autumn Swing. I coloured up a little scene for her rather quickly, but it gave the effect I wanted. Proper autumn colours were needed for this card and what is better than a big tree to swing from?
