P, Q and R Christmas

Hellooooo. There is a new challenge beginning at ABC Christmas Challenge. We have reached P, Q and R – and we want to see your Christmas makes with Pine Trees, Quiet, and/or Robins.

I went with all three:

Pine Trees

This first card is using the Clearly Besotted ‘Scene It Around 2‘ stamp set, and coloured with Copics.

Quiet

Santa and the sleeping cat – shhhh – is from Gerda Steiner Designs, again coloured with Copics. I’m owned by two cats actually, and until hubby and I have finished our travels and working less – then it will continue to be cats – they are so much more independent – and don’t need walking in bad weather!

Robins

These cute little Robins are from Clearly Besotted – stamped the layers, adding glitter to the white on the hats, and added to a stenciled background.

I am looking forward to seeing what you create with these topics for a Christmas make – hope to see you in our gallery. xx

Butterflies

Hi there. I have a couple of cards to share today using the same Simon Say Stamp ‘Beautiful Butterflies‘ stamp and die set.

The card on the left is my version of the slim line card. I stamped the butterfly in Distress Oxide ‘Peacock Feathers’ for a solid impression. I was going to colour the white parts in – but decided it looked good as it was.

The layers are using Mama Elephant slim line dies with the white water-colour piece splattered with the same blue Distress Oxide and I think Fossilized Amber – wanting a teal and yellow splattering going on – and a Lawn fawn grey card as a contrast layer.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, which I chose to give someone some encouragement with a recent promotion.

The second card:

I stamped the images with Lawn Fawn inks – Carrot and Fake Tan – which give fabulous coverage, by the way – then cut them out with the matching die set.

The circle is a piece of a stenciled background I made a week or so ago with Lawn Fawn ‘Starry Sky‘ stencil and white paste, die cut with a stitched circle die.

The sentiment is from a magazine freebie, and stamped onto a spare piece of water-colour card which I splattered the same two Lawn Fawn inks onto, cut into a strip, then that strip cut with the same circle die so it was the correct length, and had some stitching to it.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
