Reindeer and Snowman

It’s time for another Christmas card to make sure the pile is growing nicely! This is a stamp by Kinda Cute by Patricia which I coloured up quite a while ago. It was fun to do a no-line version of the stamp.

The sentiment is by Mathia Design and I’ve used patterned paper by Maja Design cut into various shapes using Whimsy Stamps dies (aff. link). The snowflakes are made with Memory Box dies and I’ve put it all on top of a doily and added some transparent sequins and red enamel dots to finish it off.

Feeding the birds with a dash of red

I’ve, once again, used the Feeding the Birds stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. This time I’ve cut it out by hand and used only very few colours. The card is made with items from various companies. The background stamp is by Simon Says Stamp, inked with Distress Oxide, the polaroid frame die is by MFT Stamps and the snowflakes by Hello Bluebird. A simple sentiment by Mama Elephant and some red and white baker’s twine finished off the card.

Whimsy bunny Row

For Whimsy Stamps‘ December release I’ve made a slimline card using the Christmas Bunny Row extended stamp. This extended version is perfect for a slimline card. They do have one with fewer bunnies as well (here). I’ve kept it super simple and just coloured it up, embossed first with white embossing powder and then some white frantage to get some bigger chunks as well. The coloured panel was added to the card base using foam tape.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, N0, N1, N3, YG61, YG63, YG67, E41, E42, E43, E44, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, V000, BV000, BV01, BV02, R24, R59

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.

Winter feeling

Happy New Year everyone! Boy, 2019 went by quickly! But it’s been a very good year with loads of wonderful changes. Can’t wait to see what 2020 will bring. Hope you all have a great one!

First day of the year brings with it a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. The theme is winter and snow so I’ve had fun with my usual blue and browns. As this new challenge is so close to Christmas, I made it a couple of weeks ago and turned it into a Christmas card. But if I’d been a bit late making it, then I would have put on a Christmas sentiment anyway to get a head start on this year’s cards! The stamp is by Mo’s Digital Pencil.
