Request: hello kitty – Christmas theme
Today I have for you, a card made specially for a doctor. We often forget that many of them or on duty during Christmas, let’s have a special thought for them!This card came together quiet quickly. I used some Christmas themed DSP which I found in my stash, together with this Doctor image. I coloured it in with my copics (Oh I love those markers!!!). Hope you like today’s card… Have a nice Christmas preparation time!
In the rush for Christmas? Still some last presents to get? Or worse, some ideas to find?! Do you know the feeling of not knowing what to give? Why not think about a gift card for Macy’s or any other big store? … You don’t like to give something so a-personal? … Me neither, so I propose you just put your gift in a handmade gift card holder!
This card holder has some space to write a personal message on the inside and has a pocket to put your gift card or a bit of money. Once closed, the card is a nice present to give to anyone you like!
Christmas is all about reds and greens, but today I decided to feature a monochromatic black-grey-white card. I used basic black and basic grey ink from stampin up and stayzon black ink (to get a darker black image). I added some snow with my uniball signo pen. The card base is white, so I added a grey and a white layer of cardstock inside to have a “stronger” backing (as whisper white card stock tends to bend). Hope you like it!
Today I share with you a card I made last year for Christmas. I used the gatefold technique using garden green and early expresso card stock. The papers are scraps I had left, so I don’t have the reference anymore (sorry). Finally, I used some retired stams from Stampin’up. The little Christmas tree has been popped up with dimentionals and has been repeated in the inside of the card. This is a very easy card that can be made in batch if needed. Hope you like it!
And here I am again with my favorite little Dasher. I love to use this stamp for Christmas cards! He’s so simple and elegant… I use this set mainly in scenery cards featuring Dasher in the moonlight…
The card I share with you today is made using the circle card thinlits dye from Stampin up. I always make sure to make larger cards than the thinlit is intended to make so that I can close the card and have the space to write something on the inside. For the decoration, I used my pinetree diecut and added some bling with the stampin’up silver glitter sheets and some rhinestones.
Here you will find some cards I designed for a stamp-a-stack. They are soooo easy! In fact, these are part of a one sheet wonder I created (almost without knowing). I proceeded completely at random: I took my DSP sheet and cutted it down in different directions. With the different cut pieces I created these cards. No measuring, just guessing around! I loved it… and it took almost no time to make them all! (This was very important as my brother was with me in my scraproom, crafting on his own, SO I had to keep an eye on him to reduce the mess 😉 ) Of course I had to make some mats for the different pieces, but I just used some scraps that were laying around on my desk. Unfortunately all stamps are retired as well as the DSP, but these can of course easily be replaced by other gorgeous papers! Hope you like it!
These are tags I made for my Christmas presents last year. I wanted to share them with you as I had a lot of great responses to them! I decided to wrap my presents in regular but colored newspaper and added a red ribbon and these tags. They looked stunning! As I made my tags in advance and as we celebrated Christmas in 3 times (so I did not wrap all the presents at once), I needed something to keep them protected. I thus made them a cute little box. I like the faux window effect made by masking and sponging. The “lovely as a tree” set from stampin up is sooo versatile, I think it is my best buy ever! The other stamp set is retired, I think it was called “winter post”. Hope you like it! Just give Christams tagging a try and you will see that a small personal touch gives a great effect!
The Holidays are just around the corner! We are trying to get ready… This is a card we made at my christmas class. A lot of masking and sponging, but I love how this turns a white piece of cardstock into a nice background! Dasher (I love this stamp from Stampin’up!) has been embossed with silver embossing powder and I added some bling with the glitter sheet and rhinestones. It is always such a pitty that I am not a great photographer as this is really a stunning card in real life!
