For today, I wanted to do something special to thank all the Krafty Girls for having me as Krafty Guest for December and I played with an idea I have had in mind for some time, inspired by fantastic videos by Vicky which really helped me dare try - my first ever journal page!

Wishing you...

Hello everyone! I'm popping by to share a simple Christmas card I made with a gorgeous sentiment from Paperbabe Stamps which can be used by itself, perfect when you need a lot of cards :)!!

Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Love and Laughter
Other: Distress Inks, Versamark, Embossing Powder

This stamp, like all the stamps from the December Release are red rubber stamps mounted which each come with an acrylic block AND you can see the image at the back of the stamps - so convenient! The stamp stamps to perfection - all the white powder around is embossing powder I left on purpose because I do like to have lots of little white spots for snow on winter cards. I simply used my blending tool and Distress Inks to do the background, then stamped Love and Laughter in Versamark and embossed in white. It couldn't be any simpler, could it!!!

Challenges I am entering:
Cards Und More - All About Christmas
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

Be Merry :)

Hello everyone! I'm back to share another Christmas card, with a super cute Tiddly Inks image and sentiment:)

I printed my image called Be Merry And Bright on Make It Colour Blending Card and coloured it with my Copics. I started with the background as always, using a very light blue. I coloured all the lights last, using three Copics each time, first colouring the inside of the light with my medium shade, then outside the light with my lightest to give the idea of lights being on, then added a touch of my darkest shade inside the light. I die cut my image with a Spellbinders Label die and I used DPs by Bo Bunny.

Background: BG000
Dog: W0, 1, 3, 5
Sentiment: E40, Y000
Lights: R32, 35, 37, Y11, 15, 17, YG01, 03, 17
Shadow: BV00

Thank you very much for your visit, have a lovely day!
