Winter Fun

Firstly, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, whether you are in Australia and having a warm Christmas with lots of salads and cold desserts, or on the other side of the planet and enjoying some traditional Christmas food to warm you up, I hope it was a special day!

Today I am sharing with you a card that is something a little different for me, which I made for our Crafty Boots Winter Wonderland challenge.
I didn’t want to make another Christmas card, since Christmas is done for this year (although we are still getting through the leftovers, and playing with new toys!!), so I had a think about something fun to do in the snow.  Then I went searching for a digi image that I could colour, and here is the end result.

I have used my Blendabilities to colour this image from S.W.A.L.K.  Isn’t it just too cute?

So now you can join in with this challenge too, it doesn’t have to be just about Christmas! 🙂

Happy stamping!

Winter Wonderland Christmas Cards

Winter Wonderland is the theme this week at Crafty Boots Challenges.
I know a lot of people in Australia think it’s wrong to have Christmas cards made with winter themes and snowmen, but I think a lot of us have friends and relatives who live in other countries where it is snowing at this time of year.  I know I do.  So I have made a couple of “snowy” Christmas cards.

This first card uses the Lovely as a Tree stamp set – an oldie but a goodie, especially when it comes to snow-laden wintery trees.  I have stamped everything in Versamark ink onto some Silver Foil and heat embossed with White embossing powder, then layered the Silver Foil onto some white cardstock.  Simple, but effective.  And it’s flat, no bulky bits that stick out, so can easily be posted off without Mr Postie getting cranky!

The second card is again, predominantly white and silver, this time the trees have been stamped in Silver ink, and the cute little bird from For the Birds stamp set, has been stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Blendabilities.  I think he is off to decorate those silver trees. 🙂

And in other news, we have a couple of cheeky new members of our family….. here is one of them trying to “help” me type up this post 🙂

Happy stamping!
