Hello Rudolph

This is a first Christmas card I made for my friends little baby girl. The stamp I used for the main image was Humphrey's Corner - Hello Rudolph stamp set by Crafter's Companion. I coloured the stamped image with Copics. The sentiment is from the Humphrey's Corner - 1st Christmas stamp set.

I used Nestabilities to cut out the coloured image and the scalloped pink frame. I punched a punch, Nestabilities and my Cricut to cut out the snowflakes that I used around the edge of the card. To finish I added Stickles for some festive sparkle and faux stitching.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

To daddy

This is a Christmas card I have made for Megan to give to her daddy. I started by stamping and colouring the cute baby image. The stamp I used was Baby's First Christmas by Lili of the Valley. I stamped the image with a Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad. I coloured the image with Copics. I added Stickles for the sparkly snow and white flock to the hat for the fur. I mounted this onto a circle of dark green card.

I used a Craftwork Cards Easel Scallop Circle card as the base of the card. The patterned paper I used is from the Candy Cane range from Craftwork Cards. I used Craftwork Cards Printers Block stamps to stamp the 'to daddy' wording. I added each letter with a foam pad. The Card Candi I used for the stoppers and the sentiment die cut are also from Craftwork cards. To finish I added faux stitching and snowflakes with I cut with punches and my Cricut.

Little Claire's December blog challenge - DT card

This is my DT card for the new Little Claire Blog challenge number 28 that starts today. The theme of the challenge is 'Happy New Year'.
The prize for this month's challenge is a £15 Little Claire voucher to spend online. For more details about the challenge and other DT cards please see Little Claire's Blog.

For my DT card I chose the happy elephant stamp Armfuls of Wishes. I thought it would make a cheerful card to wish a happy new year to someone or as a Christmas gift thank you card. I stamped the image with a Memento ink pad and coloured it in with Copics. I mounted the coloured image onto dark grey card before attaching it to a shaped card blank. To finish I added die cut flowers and white Card Candi.

This is a calendar I made at Lisa.B.Designs workshop last Friday. It was the Christmas Party night so it was a fun night of crafting, prizes and a yummy buffet too. The calender was the main project we made during the evening.
After covering a chipboard shape with patterned papers I stamped the swirl designs with a black Memento ink pad.

The patterned paper and flowers were from the lovely Craftwork Cards Sugarplum Flower Pad. We added beautiful buttons to the centre of the flowers. I also added Stickles to the flowers and stamped swirls for added sparkle. I also added a die cut butterfly and Card Candi to the calendar.

Lastly I added the 2013 calendar. I was very pleased with my finish calendar and it will defiantly be going up in my craft room next year.

Winter Boofle

This is a Christmas card I have made using the cute little Boofle stamps. For the main Boofle image I used the Boofle stamp from the Boofle Christmas Tall Stamp Duo - Boofle & Penguin stamp set.
I stamped the image onto kraft, cream and white card  with a black Memento ink pad. I used the Boofle Patchwork Background stamps to added the knitted texture and the red gingham pattern. I coloured the hat and nose with ProMarkers. I cut out each section from the white and cream card, and added it to the Boofle I had stamped on kraft card. I added Glossy Accents to the nose and white flock to the fur hat.

I cut a circle of white and dark blue card to mount the Boofle onto. I used a distressing tool to add blue ink to the top half of the circle. I used blue snowflake patterned paper for the background. I stamped the greeting onto a flag shape of white card. To finish I added snowflakes, Card Candi, Stickles and faux stitching.

Little Claire December Stamp Club set

Where has this year gone? I can't believe it's December already and of course the start of a new month means a new Stamp Club set from Little Claire. This month's set is Darling Daschunds. The  'Darling Daschunds' stamp set included four separate Daschund images, one 'Big Hugs' circular sentiment and three individual greetings.

These are two cards I have made using the stamp set. All the stamped images were coloured with ProMarkers. For the first card (above) I have used the stamps to create a patterned background.
