I’m in a giraffe mood at the moment! They are such fun to colour up! Here I’ve used Giraffe Hug from RAM Stamps to make a baby card. I’ve die cut the coloured paper with a cloud die and then used a winter themed paper in the background. Various snowflake dies were used to add to the winter theme and then I stacked several die cut letters on top of each other to make the name pop out. A small banner with the date on was put underneath.
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!
PFS Frolicking Winter Friends
I’m back with my final card for the Picket Fence Studios October release. As the whole family got sick for a couple of weeks, everything got put a bit on hold. But now I’m hopefully back around with loads of crafting time soon!
I’ve used a few different products for this one as well, but this one is more my usual style of a full panel colouring! The adorable mice are from the Frolicking Winter Friends set, I’ve used a few trees from Scene Building: Winter Wonderland Trees and then I used some green sequins from the Black Tie Affair Sequin Mix.
MFT Superstar Clean & Simple Genius
I’ve also made a Clean & Simple card for this year’s MFT Superstar. Once again, my markers have been out to play, and I’ve coloured up Birdie Brown’s Warmest Wishes. After colouring up a little background around her I’ve used that colour on the background paper from the Watercolor Wash paper pad. The sentiment, from the Bitty Holiday Wishes set, has been put to run along the edge to keep the focus on the right-hand side of the card. As I’ve put it that way around, I stuck with black ink so it would be easy to read still.
This card has been entered into the following challenge:
These two cute little penguins are by Hello Bluebird. I had fun making a background behind them and adding some white die cuts such as the frame and the snowflakes. I love making winter themed cards!
