I think this should be the last one...


I meant this should probably be the last Christmas card I make, at least for a while. It seems like that is all that I am making. But for now, here is the card

Since this is going to be the last one for a while, why not make it the traditional colors? Also, I wanted to make this one super-cute, so lots of different stamps from different stamping sets. So here we go..the cute reindeer  are from Lawn Fawn and the Santa stamp is from Wplus9


And the cute little tweeting birdies are from Lawn fawn

As you can see, I added a few sparkles here and there..just for fun! Making the card was super easy. I just used different size of circle dies to create the windows and arranged the stamps that I colored with Copic markers.

Mo manning - winter fairy

Spring is slowly but surely turning to summer but there is always time for one more winter / Christmas card, especially, if one is using a Mo manning stamp. They are soooooo cute.

For my card, I decided to keep it simple and clean ( easier to mail, less postage!)
The background paper has the Tim Holtz stamp in the bottom panel whereas on the top panel, I heat embossed a few white stars. The white dots are made with a gel pen.

The Winter fairy stamp has been colored with Copic markers as our the gift boxes. While it is hard to see in the picture, the fairy seems to be blowing out cold air, which I drew and heat embossed in silver color.

Hope you enjoyed the card

As you like it - Favorite card base and why
      Well, my favorite card base is a 5X7 rectangle card just because it is easy to put all the little things, stamps, embellishments that I want to without crowding everything out. Though, it does mean that I end up wasting some paper, which I hate!

Staying calm...

Well, that's the feeling I got when I looked at the finished card.
I was trying to make a neutral card ( not overtly feminine or masculine) to put it in my " I may need this in an emergency situation" pile and decided to use Serendipity stamps, with neutral, muted colors.
Sort of like the end result :)

The sentiment is from Altenew. I had to improvise since I needed the sentiment in one line and it is actually arranged such that "Happy" is above the word "everything". Nothing that a bit of tape wouldn't cure :)
The medallion on the top is from a Christmas collection of sentiments - I think it is Just rite but I have to check ( old stamp - original packaging lost)

I really do like the muted effect. It is difficult to see in the picture but I also incorporated a slight shine effect using the metallic markers.

Another Christmas Card

I am on a roll, ain't I?
Actually, I always start with good intentions, early enough and then the lazy, hazy days of summer roll in and I do not know how the time flies. Before I know it is end of  October and I am panicking!!
Hopefully this year will be better.
And the creation for this week is

I have used Serendipity Stamps as well as my go to stamp for the sentiment..I think it is Penny black? It is so old and of course, the original packaging is long gone.

I stamped the image twice. A part of the second image was die cut in the shape of a tag and colored with copics.
