Winter hugs

It’s been a quiet week on the blog, but that’s because there’s been a colouring challenge on Instagram and I simply haven’t got the time to do both at the moment! That ended yesterday, though, so now I’m back with more cards!

Today’s card is another Christmas one. I’ve coloured up a stamp by Purple Onion Designs and kept the card simple apart from the cluster of die cuts and scraps at the top. The papers are mostly from various Maja Design collections which has been cut with dies from Whimsy Stamps, La-La Land Crafts and Memory Box, and the sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

Time for another Christmas card, and once again it’s a rather blue one! I’ve used distress oxide on a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp together with dies from MFT Stamps (frame) and Papirdesign (sentiment). The stamp, by Whimsy Stamps, is coloured up with Copics and a few blue sequins finished off the look.

Sweet celebration slimline

I’ve finally gotten around to making another slimline card! I’ve coloured up stamps from MFT Stamps and then I used the filmstrip die from Whimsy Stamps for the layout. The little stamps fit perfectly into those squares! I quickly made two sentiments on the computer, as I didn’t have what I wanted at hand, and then coupled it with a word die also from MFT Stamps. A few enamel dots from Altenew and voila! Card done!

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

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.

Copics used: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV20, BG000, B0000, B01, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, R22, R24, R29, E18, G14, G17, G28, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, T1, T3, RV00

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

Whimsy wee kitty in flower pot

Time to break up all the Christmas posts with something non-Christmassy! I’ve used a stamp from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps called Sweet Kitties and made a shabby slimline card. It is a no-line version and I’ve used my Copic markers as usual.

I’ve used scraps from a few different background papers which I have torn at the top edge instead of cutting, added some lace, a doily, embossed on some frantage and glued on some sequins. The sentiment is a Norwegian text stamp (which says Happy Birthday) embossed onto dark pink cardstock and then die cut using the Quick Strips die set.

Copics used: N0, N1, N2, N3, W0, W2, YR20, YR31, YR23, YR27, E08, E70, E71, E74, RV10, RV91, RV93, RV32, RV34
