LH Snowman with penguin

I have made yet another card for Lee Holland’s august sale. This time I’ve coloured up Snowman and Penguin. The stamp is coloured up using Copic Markers as per usual and I’ve gone with a darker sky and gave it a hard edge against the white coloured card stock.

The coloured panel has been die cut using one of MFT Stamps rectangle dies and I’ve added some Memory Box snowflakes around the edges. A swirly God Jul sentiment sits nicely across the bottom with some semi-transparent sequins around it.

Through August (2021) Lee Holland is having a promotion of 30% off if you buy 3 or more stamps. Or if you fancy the entire Ultimate Christmas bundle and Christmas Dragon bundle use the code CHRISTMAS60 to get 60% off!

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.

Polkadoodles snowman skiing

My first design team project of the year is one for Polkadoodles using their latest release, Frosty Smiles. It’s all about snowmen! Which is perfect really as we’ve had a white start to the year and we have definitely made time for playing in the snow. This particular snowman is out skiing!

The sentiment, stamped with Altenew ink, is from the Spring Rose layering stamp set.

Here is another photo of the card.

RAM Christmas Ornaments

I decided to do something different this time for my Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios design team project. Instead of a card I’ve made two matching Christmas tags. I used two of the three stamps that come in the Christmas Ornament stamp set. On the back of each one I’ve stamped a Norwegian to and from stamp and they are ready to be written on and tied onto Christmas presents!

The tags are made using a die from La-La Land Crafts and the papers are Maja Design.

Here is a closer look at the snowman tag.

And here is a closer look at the koala tag.

Lotv bears building snowman

Lili of the Valley is working on yet another new Christmas release and it’s a great one! I simply had to colour up one of the stamps right away, with these bears building a snowman! Even though there is loads of white, I opted for a no-lines version of the stamp. Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas cards, so I suppose it was a bit of an obvious choice, but hey! When it looks great, why pick something else, right? hehehe

The decorations are kept simple with just a cluster of die cut scrap paper, some die cut snowflakes, one of Lili of the Valley’s own sentiments as well as some enamel dots.

And this marks the end of August. I am pleased I managed to do a card a day. There’ll be quite a few cards the next few months too, I am sure. Tomorrow is September, and I don’t think I am quite ready for autumn yet.
