Merriest Christmas


As Christmas card season draws to a close, I am pretty disappointed I haven't been able to show more of what I've made. They seem to be sent out as soon as they're finished! I have two though that were featured in last month's Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine. I love these bunnies from The Cat's Pjamas. And I was using up some old Christmas papers from last season - bonus!

Stamps: The Cat's Pajamas - Merry Everything
Ink: Momento - Tuxedo Black. Copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin Up - Crumb Cake. Copic - X-Press It
Papers: Carta Bella - So This Is Christmas
Accessories: Pretty Pink Posh - Stitched border die, Spellbinders label die, Whimsey Farm Twine - Red twine. Stampin Up - Buttons. My Mind's Eye - Enamel dots. Heidi Swapp - Gold Colorshine spray




 
Here is the second card. Such another cute image. Because it was for a magazine feature, I kept the same colour theme. I feel like limiting the colours on the presents is always a good idea, especially because these ones are so small. Otherwise it can look too "busy."

Dino-Mite


I'm in boy card making season! My son has a heap of friend's birthdays this month and next. This particular one is for his best friend, a dinosaur lover. I do a dinosaur card for him every year, and this is by far my favourite. I just love the dinosaurs in this image. It's Dino-Mite, from, Tiddly Inks! His favourite colour is orange so I just had to do one of the dinosaurs orange at least! I coloured them with copic markers and added a few spotty details to the orange one. I sprayed the edges with Colourshine mist and added some white paint splatter over the background. I typed the sentiment in a word doc and printed it out.

Have a great weekend
