Christmas Card No. 7 | MFT & Altenew

Hello everyone! I am back with Christmas card design number 7!!! I don't have many stamps from Altenew but I had to get 'bells and bows' for my Christmas cards. I think it is such a clever set and perfect for backgrounds etc.

So I stamped some bells in blue inks onto a square piece of paper. (moonstone, fish tank and deep sea from Lawn Fawn) and diecut the large circle from the 'columbus circle' set from Mama Elephant.

Then I stamped another bell in grey inks (manatee, hippo and storm cloud from Lawn Fawn) and diecut it. I also made a cute little Yeti from 'beast friends' from My favorite things and colored it in with copics.



After adhering the background piece to a metallic blue square cardbase I used foam tape to glue the Yeti and it's bell onto the card as well. The little sentiment is from the 'merry everything' set from My favorite things.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Christmas Card No. 6 | Mama Elephant

Hi there! The Christmas Card post No. 5 is ready :) Today I used the sweet stamps from 'A cookie Christmas' from Mama Elephant. I colored them in with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies.


Then I created a cloudy background with MFT stencils and distress inks. I also used the landscape trio dies for the snow. I decided to use a German sentiment for this one. 



I made two cards at once using different card bases: a green one and a metallic brown one.
I just love the sweet gingerbread men :)



Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Christmas Card No. 5 | Clearly Besotted

Hi everyone! I am back with two cards using the adorable 'all in onesie Christmas' set from Clearly Besotted again.



I wanted to make those sweet children my focus point. So I started out by cutting a strip of watercolor paper and stamping 4 of the adorable the images. I used the misti for that so I created two panels at once.


I colored the images in with Zig clean color real brush and created masks to cover them before I added distress inks on top. For one card I used green distress inks and for the other blue colors.
I also sprinkled some water droplets to create more interest.


After that I used a new Tim Holtz stencil and candied apple distress oxide inks to add some stripes to a craft cardbase. Then I added the colored panels with foam tape to the card base.
I didn't want to add a sentiment on the front, so the children remain the stars of this card. I just added a small greeting on the inside.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Christmas Card No. 4 | Clearly Besotted

Hi there! Finally I could play with the sweet new Clearly Besotted stamps :) I am a big fan of their designs especially in combination with Zig clean color real brush markers.

This time I created three cards using the new 'all in onesies Christmas' set and the older sets layered wreath and 'let's prance'.




I started out by creating the wreaths using Lawn Fawn ink. Then I used salty ocean distress ink to create kind of a frame around the wreath. I also added water droplets for the lovely distress look. 


Then I stamped the images with archival jet black and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers. I fuzzy cut them and adhered them to the card. For the berries I decided to add red glitter nuvo drops. The sentiment is also from the older set layered wreath.


Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
