Littles - Santa and His Reindeer

Hi Lovely Bloggers

I've been Santa colouring again for my card today - this is Santa and his Reindeer, from the Littles range at Stamping Bella.

I stamped, coloured, then masked the image, so I could do a bit of Distress Ink Blending, creating a snowy sky background.  I splattered on some acrylic paint to create the snow.

A Gift from Yeti

Hi Lovelies..

For today's Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella, we're highlighting the Stamp of the Month for December - which this time is 'A Gift From Yeti'.  

I kept my card relatively simple... I coloured and fussy cut the yeti, before adhering with foam pads to a dry embossed snowy backdrop.  I added the sentiment which is included, to a white band, finishing with a couple of gems.  I matted some navy blue cardstock behind the panel.

Snowy Embossing Folder
Colouring - Copics
Yeti - B60/63, RV91/93
Gift - G14 R27/46

You can get this stamp with 50% discount throughout December - which is a fabulous bargain!

Hope you like my make today.. and that you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog for more inspiration from my fellow teamies!

Big hugs - Have a Great Weekend..

Prima Ballerina

Me again!

This time I'm here with my card for the All Dressed Up Challenge for December - the theme this time is:


Now I do love this fabulous image from Wendy - and I knew which paper I wanted to put alongside her..  then I wondered whether to add embellishments or not.  I decided against, as I didn't want to take anything away from this dancer, who in my eyes, had to be the total centre of attention!  I coloured and shaded around her rather than fussy cutting this time, to make the image pop from the page.

Card Info:
Paper - LOTV Digital Paper
Die - Lil' Inkers Stitched Square
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/01/11/70 R20
Hair - E42/43
Dress - R10/81/83/85
Shading and grounding - T0/1/2/3

I also didn't add a sentiment for similar reasons, deciding this card could be sent to an aspiring dancer on any number of occasions... or even to someone who just appreciates ballet.  I did add lots of glitter to her tutu though.... well, what's a girl without glitter???

Hope you like my make and that you'll pop on over to the All Dressed Up Facebook Page to join in the 'Square' fun!

Take to the Slopes

Hi Peeps...

Well I have two cards to share with you today.... my first is from All Dressed Up and is available as a freebie through the Kit and Clowder Facebook Page!!!

The image is called 'Take to the Slopes' - I decided to go a bit 'out there' and do a pink sky.... it turned out slightly pinker than I would have liked, but hey...  I like it!  I Distress Ink blended the background, added a little snowy slope with a few glittery die-cut trees.. then all I had to do was colour and fussy cut the image and adhere!

Card Info:

Image - All Dressed Up Take to the Slopes Digital Image (freebie on K & C Advent Calender Facebook Page)

Sentiment - done on PC

Dies - Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders, MFT Stitched Rectangles, Trees - Marianne Design CR1287

Colouring - Copics  -  Skin E000/01/11, Hair E43/44, Jumper B21/23/24, Pinks RV52/63/55, Skis N0/1/3, Ski Goggles C5/7

I splattered the background with white acrylic paint to create a snow scene, then sprayed with Pearl Ex to give a sparkly look - difficult to photograph, but better in real life.

I'll be back later today with another All Dressed Up DT card - this time for our challenge!

See Ya Later...
