Polkadoodles Winnie xmas wishes

Another Polkadoodles project on the menu today! The stamp is called Just for You and I’ve opted for traditional reds and greens in the colouring. For the card itself, however, I wanted a blue and white wintery feel, so I used patterned paper in those colours which I painted with white acrylic paint around the edge. The peace and joy background paper is from the Gnome Season paper pack. The circle die is from the stitched and pierced nested circles set.

Copics used: BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, R24, R27, R29, R59, R89, G21, G43, G46, BG99, E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, E79, B0000, B000

Whimsy penguins with snowman

One of the great advantages of digital stamps is how you can split and resize and remove things to fit your project. That is what I’ve decided on this time. All of these penguins are part of the same digital stamp. The stamp is part of the new digital release at Whimsy Stamps and is called Penguins Build a Snowman.

I opted for a slimline card this time using the great slimline film strip die. I digitally cut the digital stamp into the sections I wanted and resized them accordingly so each would fit in one of the frames. Then I erased the lines that was a part of the other sections of the original image to make them look like stand alone stamps.

To finish it off I used an inverted colour version of Merry and Bright sentiment stamp and some sparkly enamel dots.

Copics used: N0, N1, N2, N3, N5, N7, N9, C0, C1, C2, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, YR31, YR23, E34, E97, E41, E42, E43, RV10, RV32, RV34, BV23, BV25, BV29

LotV penguin friends

Cards don’t have to be very complicated or fancy. Sometimes keeping it real simple works just fine. That’s what I opted for this time. I printed the Lili of the Valley Penguin Friends stamp at the top of the panel and then coloured in approximately 1/3 of the panel leaving the rest white. The sentiment was put on and printed together with the penguins. It is one of the sentiments from the 60 Christmas circular and more sentiments set, but instead of keeping the rounded shape I split it up and made it a long one.

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.

LotV – penguin kisses

There is a new release coming at Lili of the Valley later this month and it’s awesome! There are loads of totally awesome penguins and various watercolour elements you can use on your cards. How cool is that? I’ve used used one of the splashes together with the adorable penguin couple.

I printed them together and then coloured the penguins up with my Prismacolor pencils. A little bit of glitter on some chipboard, one of the embossed labels from Lili of the Valley, a few snowflakes and a red card base and I’ve officially started on this year’s Christmas cards!

Let’s have another photo, just because!
