Hugs with a Motivet stamp

Hope you all enjoyed a lovely Christmas together.
I have a sweet and soft pastel shades card to share with this cute little hippo from Motivet.
I made the card from Tim Holz's Kraft resist paper and lined it with soft pastel pink card. The other papers are from Melissa Frances.
 The image is coloured with Cosmic Shimmerz.
The flower is made out of plain white paper with a Spellbinder die and the sprayed with Glimmer Chalk in Mint Choc Chip. The leaves are a die from Marianne Design and also sprayed with a few shades of Glimmer Mist. The sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the Valley.

Hark the herald angels sing...

Wishing you all the merriest Christmas ever. Hope it brings you peace, love and joy.
Sharing this Christmas card with you today with a new stamp from Lili of the Valley.
I used a kraft card as base and K&Co Que Sera Sera papers. I made a stamped background paper with a Hero Arts Cling stamp and Memento ink and covered the image with Glamour Dust.
 The main image is coloured with pencils and Cosmic Shimmer paints.
The sentiment stamp is also from Lili of the Valley. The little iridescent rounds are stickers by Paperchase.

More Christmas cards with Lili of the Valley

Two more Christmas cards with a stamp I bought last year from Lili of the Valley. I am into these watercolour paints at the moment and so you will see a lot of cards painted with Cosmic Shimmerz paint.
I have made 2 similar cards with just a small difference in the colouring.

I used Making Memories paper for the background and embossed the white card and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist.

Christmas Carols

Time is drawing near and Christmas is only 2 days away. I have a card ready for you to share with a stamp from Lili of the Valley. The image is painted with Cosmic Shimmerz so the have a lovely shine.
I used my Cuttlebug quite a bit for this card. I have embossed the base card with a Tim Holz folder. I used Spellbinders snowflakes on craft paper. The flower was made from Making Memories Ledger paper with a Spellbinders die and added Viva Pearl pen in the centre.The leaf is also a Spellbinders die and the branch is from Marianne design.
I have used Melissa Frances paper and Making Memories Ledger paper for this card. On the inside I have stamped with Distress ink and Tim Holz Stampers Anonymous Christmas stamps.

A winter bunting with Whiff of Joy

Finally! I know it has been a while. December is most hectic at home and at work. I am praying that I will find the strength to tackle everything that is thrown at me.
I have not had a lot of spare time to craft and it has seriously bugged me, but I did manage to work on some things that I had going already.
I made a little home d├ęcor piece for the winter season and used Whiff of Joy stamps. Well, they might not be all the same brand, but they are definitely by Elisabeth Bell.
Here it comes;
3 triangles from grey cardstock covered with Marianne Design Vintage Christmas papers.
 Spellbinders snowflakes covered in Glimmer Glaze in Waterfall and white pompom trim embellish the banner.
Melissa Frances snowflake border punch with cream coloured dewdrops in the centres A little puffy stuff from Woodware to create a fluffy effect on the clothing..
 I didn't take a picture of the hanging banner, but you get the idea. I have hung this from the banister of the stairs in our hallway.
 Just some close-ups of the 3 images which I have painted with Cosmic Shimmerz paints.
 Just look at that lovely sparkle! It adds so much more to the festive season, don't you think?
Have a lovely Christmas time. Hope I get more time to post some other stuff.
