Now that Christmas is behind us, I wanted to make a start on this year’s birthday card stash. I wanted bright, colourful and full of happy animals! The person I intend to send this card to is a Jungle Book lover, so I selected some of the characters to feature in the scene. I had to get a little creative…

Not many sleeps ’til Santa now! I have another festive card for you today and the last in my Scene Colouring series on the Heffy Doodle blog. This time, I coloured up some playful penguins in a snowy scene. One was halfway through building a snowman until he saw a friend who couldn’t reach the post box. What could he…

I’m back with the next card in my Scene Colouring series. I’m definitely in the Christmas mood and this card is inspired by one of the all-time great Christmas songs: When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney! Plus, it uses a non-Christmas stamp set – Teacher’s Pet – to get the most out of your stash! This one needed a…

I have a festive ‘Jingle All the Way’ scene card over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today, featuring the MFT ‘Tis the Season stamp set and some no-line Copic colouring. I started out by stamping the Santa holding his sack of goodies onto some blending cardstock using some Lawn Fawn Jellyfish ink. This combo is perfect for no-line alcohol…

I’m over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with another festive card, this time featuring the MFT Joyous Holidays and ‘Tis the Season stamp sets. When you’re looking to make many cards but still keep that quality look, the simpler the scene the better! I stamped out the Santa, tree and reindeer image using some Lawn Fawn Jellyfish ink…

It’s rapidly approaching that time of year when I start to get a bit anxious over having enough Christmas cards to send out come December. Every year I say I will start early and make at least one a month all year round, but I never manage to achieve that aim! This is my fifth card of the year and…

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you managed to have a good break. The run up to Christmas was super busy for me and crafting had to take a little bit of a back seat for a while. I didn’t get a chance to share this non-traditional Christmas card I gave to my Postie (partly in apology for…

Hap-pea Merry Little Christmas!

Cardmaking, Christmas Cards 18 December, 2019 No Comments

The big day is almost here so I thought I’d end this year with a non-traditional punny Christmas card design I sent to some of my closest friends this year. It’s a great one for using non-holiday themed stamps in a festive design. I used the Lawn Fawn Be Hap-pea stamp set, Lawn Fawn Say What? Christmas Critters stamp set…

I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with this cute, clean and simple one layer Christmas card featuring the Santa Bear stamp set from Avery Elle. I really am loving these simple designs as I get to practice my colouring and use some of those Christmas sets that haven’t gotten as much use as they probably should…
