I love making Christmas cards and try to make them all year around. Then, if something happens that prevent me from making loads in November and December, I will still have a fair few to send out at Christmas. So, needless to say, I’ve already made a start on this year’s cards already! Here is Rupert, he is making a snowman. I have paired him with the large mountains stamp, both from the Stacey Yacula collection over at Purple Onion Designs. I do love winter themed Christmas cards!

POD Flying by
Ok, so the blog has been neglected for a couple of months at least. There are two very simple reasons for that: I don’t really like blogging and I haven’t had time. I will try to do better now though. In fact, I have quite a few cards to show you. Maybe I’ll even try to do a card a day in February! We’ll see, haha.
Here is one of my most recent cards. I love Stacey Yacula’s images and this stamp is just awesome. I grew up with a plane enthusiast and I wish I could have made this card for him. It is great though, so I will make loads of cards with it! The stamp is by Purple Onion Designs and is called T-bird. He is flying in the sunrise over the Mountains.
And yes, I’m now a full-time member of the Purple Onion Designs DT. Be prepared for loads more cuteness in the months to come!
MFT Coloring Virtuoso
Apparently, it’s that time of the year again. MFT Stamps Superstar time! With the whole family off sick, I nearly missed the whole thing. Thankfully there were a few hours left!
For my Coloring Virtuoso entry this year I wanted to do something different, so I’ve stuck with just one stamp set, the Being with You stamp set by Stacey Yacula. I’ve done a full panel colouring with dark and bright colours using my Copic markers, and I’ve made a wedding card using a sentiment from Itty Bitty Basics. It can be for two men, two women or one of each. That’s what’s great about these stamps. Love is love.
The card has been entered into the following challenge:
POD New Release
Here is another thing I’ve been keeping secret, I’m guesting designing for the new Purple Onion Designs as well! These rubber stamps are delightful and fun, and I’ve had great fun colouring up various from this new release. First out is Cider hiding in a present out on the Nordic Road landscape. It’s night-time, snowing and cold. Winter at its best!
Purple Onion Designs is having a birthday sale (19 years, wow!) this week and I’ve been asked to guest design for it! For today’s card I’ve gone with bolder, darker colours than I usually do, because they make for great cards too!
I have masked together three stamps for the little scene (Tree Line, Dylan, and Jessie) and used the Everyday Blurbs sentiment to go with!
