I have another Whimsy Stamps card to share. I am in LOVE with their cutsie images! They just put a smile on my face!
I have done 3 different cards with this image. 2 similar … which I will show you later … and this one!

The snowflakes are punched and lined with navy card and some clear Wink of Stella has been added. See you again soon! Hugs xx
I have done all my Christmas shopping and it is gift wrapped and under the tree! Feeling pretty organised … but still have to think about food for 3 family Christmas events at our place. Christmas Eve is our time with our kids and grandkids. My extended family is going to be away over Christmas so we are having a day together on the 17th Dec … and Gav’s family is coming on the 26th. So … I had better get myself organised … I have cooking to do!
I usually make 4 of each Christmas card … just to be efficient with my limited time. This one I did in two different colour schemes … one mainly gold colouring to match the DSP … the other a little brighter.
A cutie-pie image and some glitter snowflakes on the black background is really eye-catching.

Hi again friends!
Time for another Christmas card … I still have quite a few to share!
This is one of the images that I pre-coloured with my COPICS. When it came to finishing these cards … it was a little tricky wondering what to do with them. Then I found this new sentiment stamp I had recently bought … problem solved!
The snowflakes are die cut from white card stock and then the colour was sponged onto them. An easy option for matching colours!
How are your Christmas cards going? I was finished even before the end of November. It was such a help to have done all the COPIC colouring during our October holiday. Hugs xxx
I have recently joined up to a stamp club run by Leonie, my SU! buddy. I just thought it would be nice to catch up regularly for some social and stamping time … but so far I have only made it to 2 of 4 workshops! It is also a good opportunity to see some of the new SU! goodies in action. This is one of the projects I managed to get done. A gorgeous little gift card set that Leonie found online!
The gorgeous papers on these cards are from the “Floral Boutique” DSP pack.
The die cut on the white band is the “Detailed Floral Thinlits” die.
Hope you are enjoying my recent posts! Hugs xx
MMMmmmm … I was pretty tickled with this card. One of my first using my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers for watercolouring!
The watercolour wash on the background worked a treat … and I found the colouring for the images flowed pretty well too! I have heat embossed the background stars using WOW silver pearl embossing powder and layered it over the black inked stars. It is pretty eye-catching in real life! (IRL)
This was a thank you card for a friend who helped me with a recent assignment for a course I am doing. She definitely has a way with words. And … I made a second one to put into my stash “you’re in my thoughts!”
Enjoy your day! Hugs xx
I love how vibrant the colours are on this card. I have done some watercolouring over a clear embossed image. I made sure the card was quite wet to allow the paint to flow into the sections of each image.
