Snowman and Holly for Christmas

Over the last couple of years it seems that Christmas has been geting colder and there have been far more snowmen around so the theme for this year's Christmas cards has to be: Snowman and Holly.
I decided to make it with some of the new ribbon that arrived with Craft Fairy last week.

To make this card you will need:

Snowman with checkered scarf rubber stamp from the Merry Stamper range on the Craft Fairy site.
Holly leaves
Candy Cane Christmas ribbon
Art and Graphic pens by Zig, Kuretake in colours 29 and 50
Some vintage Doodlebug paper : Jolly Holly stripe
Kuretake Calligraphy pen in silver for the border of the image and the card.
Stazon in Stone grey
14 cm x 14 cm base card in white plus extra for the stamped image
Foam pads
Double sided tape

To make the card
Stamp (with Stazon), and colour your image on a spare piece of white card.
Edge the card with the silver calligraphy pen
Stick a piece of Christmas paper onto the bottom of your card.
Tie an esy bow in the ribbon and use the double sided tape to attach it to the card.
Attach the image and the holly leaves to the card with foam pads. Attahc a button to the holly leaves.
Draw a dot dash pattern on the edgeof the card as seen.
As an extra advantage I decide to enter it into the let it snow, Simon Says Challenge and the Paper Take Weekly challenge for Cut it Out.

Challenge 82 - Kids Kardz!

I know that I don't very often make cards for boys but this time I'm making the exception because it lets me use this great stamp from the Kids Collection by The Merry Stamper.

This card was made for

Challenge 82 - Kids Kardz!

on My Time to Craft.
This fab boy stamp is from the set of Sketch kids stamps from The Merry Stamper.
I also used some of our highly desired dinosaur ribbon.
Some Kuretake Art and Graphic, double ended pens for the colouring and a waterbrush for the shading.
I do hope that you like this effort as I know what a pain it is to make cards for boys and I hope that any slug hunter that gets it will love it too.

Oh Christmas Tree!

A fairly cliched title to this post I know but you're entitled to be cliched at Christmas. It's the best time to be so.

For this post I've used one of our fabulous Christmas stamps that are so reasonably priced. This one is the green Christmas tree. Very modern, don't you think?

The card is simple too as I wanted to keep the lines very clean. So this is what I came up with:

This card is made with nestabilities and doodlebug paper but the star of the show is the tree image in the centre.

Ribbon is 3mm red ribbon with white spots.

Snowman card from our new stamps

We have a set of fantastic new stamps in the online Craft Fairy store and I've made a card from just one of the little snowmen. He is just the perfect size for an A6 card and I'm sure that you'll love him too.

To make this card you will need the snowman stamp which at only £3 is a super bargain.

Some of our dotty red satin ribbon.

I also used Doodlebug paper from my stash and Kuretake pens to colour up the stamp.

Allsorts Challenge 27, 'Children'

The challenge on Allsorts this week is for a card for a child so....this card is for my grand daughter. It's a very special card this year as the one that I made for her last year was lost in the post.

The card uses my favourite colour too so for me it's just perfect.

If you want to re-creat something similar you will need:

Stamps Kids 76 from the Merry Stamper

Pink Dotty Grosgrain Ribbon

A pink bloom

A pink button

Some paper and card

Scissors, 3d foam pads. glue etc.

Have fun.
