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!

MFT Christmas cheer

Have you made any Christmas cards yet? I am almost done with mine now. In fact I posted my first few ones yesterday! I’ve used lilac colours again this time. The stamp set is by My Favorite Things is a part of the Stacey Yacula collection and is called Christmas Cheer. I have masked various of the stamps together to make the little scene.

The base is made with lilac card stock from MFT Stamps as well and I used one of their Stitched Rectangle stax dies. The sentiment is a Mama Elephant die cut out with white card stock and at the end I added some semi-transparent sequins around the top.

Copics used: (snow) BV20, BV23, BG000, B0000, (green) YG61, G43, YG63, G46, YG67, BG99, (yellow) Y13, Y19, E97 (fox) E08, E18, E19, E97, (grey) W0, W1, W3, W5, (brown) E71, E74, E79, (red) R32, R35, R39, (blue) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (pink) RV52, RV55, RV17, (other) E50, E51, RV10, RV02

Kid and Blue tit

I admit it, I had to google the name of the bird I tried to colour. I don’t know a lot of bird names in English. The last time I coloured up this Mo’s Digital Pencil image I opted for a robin, so I wanted something different and a blue tit fit the rest of my colouring quite well, I thought. The stamp is called Feed the Birds.

The background paper at the top is by Maja Design and the sentiment stamp is by Mama Elephant. The card stock is by MFT Stamps and so is at least one of two dies I used, possibly both.

Crafty Meraki shaker card

It’s Tuesday and time for another Crafty Meraki project. I’ve made another shaker card this week and this time I’ve used the full bigger frame from Frame Worthy slimline dies set. The stamps I decided to use this time is from the Flurry of Love set by My Favorite Things, and I made it with a subtle purple as the main colour. I’ve used nearly all the stamps from said set and masked them together. Then I used the frame to make the shaker area filling it with various sequins in matching colours before adding two sentiments on top.

Here is another photo where the shaker elements aren’t covering the whole image

Crafty Meraki Butterfly orchid

It is Tuesday again so that means it’s time for another Crafty Meraki project. The project I have made for today is actually a shaker card! I don’t tend to make many of those, but with the great Frame Worthy slimline dies I simply couldn’t help myself. I coloured up a no-line version of the Meraki butterfly and cut it out by hand. Then I used two of the frame dies and cut them to the length I wanted before filling it with sequins in colours matching the butterfly. An embossed MFT Stamps (Bitty Bears) sentiment on matching cardstock with a few enamel dots by Altenew finished it all off nicely.

Here is a photo of it laying down flat.
