Happy Holidays

This is the third payday design I used, I kept them simple this year with minimal colouring, last year I went a bit all out and by the end I was so frustrated I wasn't enjoying it so this year I thought simple and easy and then everyone gets a hand coloured card that I'm happy with and no last minute rushing.



Ingredients
Image: "happy holidays" Your Next Stamp
Paper: "tatty teddy"
Die: "small scalloped rectangle" MFT stamps

Copics
Moose - E70, 71, 74, 77, 79, 49

James Christmas Cracker

Lili of the Valley reintroduced the James bear this year and they are also now available as Digi Stamps, I bought the digi stamp version as I thought I would probably make it bigger as the stamps are quite small and fiddly to colour, so why have I printed it smaller than even the stamp lol. 

This was a quick, simple but I hope elegant card and I made more than one of this design, multiples is the only way to go near christmas, just wish I could do the same for the birthday cards lol.



Ingredients
Image: "James Christmas Cracker" Digistamp from LOTV (lili of the valley)
Sentiment: "think big favourites" Papertrey ink, embossed with "cherry cobbler" powder from Stampin Up
Dies: Blueprints 27 and circle stax both from MFT, Crealies XXL stitched circles 
Card: "Blueberry Sky" Papertrey Ink and "real red" Stampin Up

Creative Stamping Santa Boot

These cards have been so easy to produce and once I started I couldn't seem to stop so al;most all my christmas cards are the same. Hopefully next year this won't be the case.....I think I say that every year lol.

Creative Stamping Star

This was the first design from this magazine and you can tell it wasn't the last lol. I am so shocked that I kept going with this design as normally I get bored but not this time, maybe it was because I was so disorganised lol.

Creative Stamping Stockings

Third card in the Creative Stamping series, think this version is definitely my favourite and this image is the reason I bought the magazine in the first place. Of course then I was intending colouring each stocking but there is always next year.

First Christmas

We have a new addition to the family and they always get a card for themselves on their first christmas. I bought this magazine just for this image and sentiment and I am so glad I did as there are loads of other images to enjoy too.

I originally coloured the hair blond but once she was born she had beautiful dark hair so her card was changed to match, i love that you can achieve this easily with copics.



Ingredients
Image and Sentiment: Creative Stamping
Dies: Blueprints 29 and small scalloped circles from MFT stamps and XXL stitched circles from Crealies
Card: "pink lemonade" Mft and "smoky slate" Stampin Up
