i’m almost finished all the christmas projects i’ve been working on; hopefully i’ll be done by next week.
this is the card that i made a set of for my dad; his only request was for a ‘peace on earth’ sentiment so i chose this cling mount one from magenta. the chalet is a nellie snellen image that stamps beautifully; i coloured it with pencil crayons and for the first time i used a blue pan pastel for the sky.
i’m playing along with these challenges:
Stamping Sensations – one layer christmas cards
Happy Little Stampers CAS November – Christmas – must be Clean and Simple
Noor! Designs UK November – Winter
thanks for popping by.
i made this card for the sketch saturday challenge, and the jingle belles’ dashing through the snow theme. i coloured everything with distress ink pads, added stickles for the snow on the ground and flower soft for the tails and hat trim. i was inspired by stephanie’s card to use the red check with the kraft since i bought the simple stories handmade holidays paper during my last trip to my local stamp store. thanks stephanie and thanks for popping by.
this is my second card for my guest designer spot at one crazy stamper. this nellie snellen image was so much fun to colour with distress inks; did you notice the tiny bunny sitting on the present? i lightly distressed the edges of the image layer, added lace, ribbon and some tiny pearls. you have until the end of the month to enter the mom’s challenge! thanks for popping by.
my wish is that my mojo would stop taking a break. in between medical appointments and my out of town daughter visiting with her two very cute bunnies, i haven’t had time to create much lately. anyway, i watercoloured this image with distress inks and aquamarkers, used plenty of stickles on the wings and created this fan flower by hand scoring the paper strip; the hardest part was actually forming the flower and getting it to stick to the base. with my hands, i don’t think i’ll be making many of these, although i love how they look. thanks for popping by. i’m submitting this to the following challenges:
