I have had help making today’s card. My 2 year old has helped me make the background by both stamping different stamps as well as using paint on a stencil. The stamp is called Tweet Friendship and is by Rachelle Anne Miller.
My second entry for this years MFT Stamps‘ Superstar contest is for the colouring category. I’ve been unsure if I was going to have the energy for this as I’ve been unwell most of this month so far, the past week and a half with a nasty cold and a cough that simply will neither let go nor let me sleep. Oh how I am looking forward to it disappearing!
Anyway, here I am with my finished project. I had an idea which I think fits with the last year. How some people make a difference and make your life more colourful. So the front is coloured in black and white, the first page inside is the same image, but in colour, and then it’s a normal greeting area inside with the text “You Make Everyday Life Feel Special”. I have combined various sets from the Birdie Brown and Stacey Yacula collections for the scene.
Here is the front of the card. I have used scissors to cut a small tab at the bottom which I embossed a small greeting onto. I’ve also used chunky embossing to create snow on the image.
Here is the flip inside with the coloured image. I’ve added “snow” to this panel as well as another sentiment:
And the page inside with the greeting:
Here are the two coloured panels before I made the card:

Oh my goodness! I am so happy to share that my card was chosen as one of the winners. Thank you so much!
I’ve finally got a bit more crafting time and I’ve spent the past week colouring up various images. However, Lili of the Valley is having a new Christmas and winter release today so of course I had to make a card with one of the new images! I’ve used the image Winter Moonlight for this project.
The background paper and “klem” part of the sentiment are from Papirdesign and the big letters are by Altenew. And of course the card is blue. It is my favourite for this kind of card after all!
I’ve, once again, used the Feeding the Birds stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. This time I’ve cut it out by hand and used only very few colours. The card is made with items from various companies. The background stamp is by Simon Says Stamp, inked with Distress Oxide, the polaroid frame die is by MFT Stamps and the snowflakes by Hello Bluebird. A simple sentiment by Mama Elephant and some red and white baker’s twine finished off the card.
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.
