Three Kings

Athough I love using and colouring digi stamps, every now and again I like to get out proper wood-mounted rubber stamps.  Here I have used two and then embossed the images with black embossing powder.  It seems strange to use black on a Christmas card (and indeed as I schoolgirl i was once marked down for designing a wrapping paper that had a black background) but with with the silver foil on the Kanban backing paper, I still see the light in this card.

Holly angel

I have used a Lili of the Valley topper for this Christmas card.  I matched it with some holly decorated paper from my stash and a topper printed from a Pollyanna Pickering CD.  Alll elements were mounted onto dark green before being assembled on the card.  I used some rustic jute ribbon behind the topper for a little texture.

Creative Moments Challenge

The new challenge at Creative Moments has started – there is an option to make a spooky creation but I am well into Christmas card making now so a Christmas card it is!

My card uses a digi stamp set from M Medal Creations.  The stamp set includes several stamps which are perfect for Christmas cards and can be used in any combination.

I took the image into an editing program and used the small digis to make confetti for my shaker card.  The elves and sentiment were enlarged and coloured and cut out to be mounted upon the shaker section frame.  The backing papers are from Hot Off The Press.

Creative Moments Challenge – Music

Another Christmas card from me today – I am on a run of them at the moment.  I have used this image of carolling penguins from Scribbles Designs for the Creative Moments music themed challenge.

I printed and coloured the digistamp, then printed the circular text with some of the music notes which I used as a frame by cutting the central part with a die.   I used 3d foam to raise this frame over the image and mounted the lot on a red mat before affixing to a 7 inch square card.

Creative Moments Challenge: Autumnal colours

I have used a Bugaboo stamp for this week’s card for the Creative Moments challenge.  I love finding digistamps for older boys as I tend to need these cards for my sons’ friends.
