Hello again. I have had some time to craft – and hopefully more time throughout the weekend. I am still doing Christmas cards, and still loving the stamping, colouring and mini-scene cards. (Stayed away from the reveal wheel this time!!)
I have just received a lot of stamps from the new Uniko release – so I will be playing with those later today – some great stamps and stencils to play to my hearts content.
This card is using the Mama Elephant ‘Santa’s Sleigh‘ stamp and matching die set, coloured with Crafters Companion Illustrator pens. I’m getting to grips with them. (Still liking them.)
I have been playing with different colours of my Distress Oxides to get some different backgrounds. I have tended to go with blues in the past, but wondered what it would be like with these colours here – and I’m liking the effect.
I splashed the distressed card with a glitter pen instead of water, then die cut once it was dry.
I turned the two die-cut rectangles upside down in their little slots for even more interest. The outside main die is raised on foam strips, and the two panels set inside flat to the base card.
The main images arranged as you see here.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Die cutting Divas – anything goes with a die cut
Watercooler challenges – anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – anything goes
4 Crafty Chicks – Christmas

What a super adorable card!! Love the fabulous background and all the cute images!! Thanks for joining us at DCD this week!
Have a great day.
Thank you very much Gerda. 🙂 🙂
Oh Linda, I love the colours you’ve chosen to use for your background. What an amazing sky, especially with that glitter ink splattered on it. I love all those layers and stitched die-cuts. But those Mama Elephant images really rock this card. Love the colouring and shading, of course, and the fun design to your card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
Thank you so much Heidi. Colouring is a new ‘thing’ for me and I’m trying to get to grips with it……I am liking it so far – but still find it a chore! There are so many images out there just begging for stamping and colouring. I’ll continue to plod on…. 🙂 🙂
