I have another card with a drawn in background. This time I opted for a different kind of trees, but kept it pretty simple. A little at a time, right? 🙂 This was used with an adorable stamp by Polkadoodles called Delivery Time. I am quite enjoying making little winter scenes at the moment and this was no exception. There will be a video coming soon showing how I coloured this one up, so check back next week!
This is my second attempt at colouring in my own background. I stuck with various purples for my little forest scene. The adorable bear is by Lili of the Valley and I’m sure you’ve seen me use this stamps a few times in the past! It gets a bit of a different look with a drawn in background, though. I also added some snow to the ground as well as some falling snow. The brighter blue scarf and hat stands out nicely against the background.
The card itself is quite simple. I didn’t feel like it needed a lot added to it, so I simply used a stitched border die for the panel, a Norwegian Christmas sentiment in a dark purple and some semi-transparent sequins around it.
Have you made any Christmas cards yet? I am almost done with mine now. In fact I posted my first few ones yesterday! I’ve used lilac colours again this time. The stamp set is by My Favorite Things is a part of the Stacey Yacula collection and is called Christmas Cheer. I have masked various of the stamps together to make the little scene.
The base is made with lilac card stock from MFT Stamps as well and I used one of their Stitched Rectangle stax dies. The sentiment is a Mama Elephant die cut out with white card stock and at the end I added some semi-transparent sequins around the top.

Christmas is coming up fast. It feels particularly fast when you have so much to do you’ve barely even got time to think about Christmas… Less than a month left now and I have a fair few colourings I still want to make cards of before then.
Here I’ve coloured up one of the Lili of the Valley stamps that was released earlier this year. I think it is one of my favourites from this year!
The card itself is simple with a small cluster of die cut paper scraps, a doily, some enamel dots and a sentiment. The papers are mostly by Maja Design and the sentiment stamp is by Mama Elephant.
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.
