Show Us Your Santas

Hello.  Welcome.  I am proud to be guest elfing again for the wonderful Dotty Pudding over at the Christmas Kickstart Challenge.  This fortnight we want you to Show Us Your Santas.  Here's mine......


This fab stamp is from Stampendous and it's called Postcard Santa.  I simply stamped it on some postmark printed kraft cardstock with black archival then restamped the santa on white cardstock.  I coloured him with Promarkers, gel pens and distress inks, added some glitter glue details and fussy cut him.  Then I added him to the card.  

Don't forget to join the fun and add a few more cards to the xmas card pile.

Fall Frolics

Hello Nomad friends.  I've made a fun Autumn card with colours supplied by Brusho Powders.  I know many of you have tried Brusho's.  Have you tried watercolouring with them??  Love the brightness and clarity of these colours.   


I used the sprinkle spritz method with Leaf Green, Emerald and Sea Green Brusho's for the base card and smooched with Scarlet and Orange Brusho powders for the Poppystamps Boddington Tree Clusters.  Then I used Scarlet, Turquoise, Emerald, Rose Pink and Black Brusho powders to colour Simon Says Stamp Chillin' Frenchie stamp.  I know, too cute!!!   The sentiment, which seems to fit a dog's life perfectly, is from Lost Coast Designs Travel Quotes rubber stamp set.  

Try everything once
Then try it again
Somewhere else

Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh!!

Bear Tags

Hello.  Welcome.  Missed out on colouring yesterday so settled down tonight with these easy bears.


I was inspired by (IB) Carly's tags on Day 2 of the The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019.  I used the bear from The Greeting Farms Let It Snow stamp set, stamped, coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut.  I added some gold and white twine loops.

Snowglobe Tag

Hello.  Welcome.  Enjoying the shaped tags over at the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  I liked Tatiana's snowglobe tags on Day 3.  I didn't have a suitable die so I used Winnie and Walters Snowy Holiday stamps.


I stamped santa and masked him.  I stamped the deer and masked.  Then I stamped the snowglobe and sentiment.  I coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut.  I punched a hole and added some twine.

She Likes Coffee

Hello.  Welcome.  Back with another card using the Paperbabes sketch.  I reversed it for this card.


I used a patterned paper card base.  I added a strip of yellow paper I stamped with Lost Coast Designs Seedpod Background stamp and embossed with Emerald Creek Gold Sparkle powder.  The red circles are Lost Coast Design PMC Circle Frame and the sweet little old lady is Lost Coast Designs Coffee, stamped, coloured with gel pens and metallic pencils and fussy cut.  The sentiment is from Carmen's Veranda.

Red Snow

Hello.  Welcome.  Paperbabes have a lovely sketch this fortnight and I used it to design this card. 


I've used Teresa Collins patterned paper for all the layers.  The curious little snowman dude in the teacup is a Tilda precut image.  I added a polkadot rosette behind him.  I stamped the God Jul (norwegian merry christmas greeting) from Kort Hobby with black ink and didn't like it!!!  So I added some irridescent glitter glue, which became a pleasing shade of green on the black ink.  A save!!!

Coffee and Donut

Hello.  Welcome.  Couldn't resist these so cute Chillin' Frenchies from Simon Says Stamp.  Hoping that they will also go as Bosties LOL.  Coloured this one to look a bit like my nephew's Bostie.  Went with autumn colours.  He looks like he has had a fabulous run and is now relaxing with a well deserved snack.  I am sure this rest won't last long.  Bosties are energetic little things.  


Loved that this little dude had a coffee cup by him.  I stamped Simon Says Stamp Frenchie on grey woodgrain card, coloured with distress markers and fussy cut.  I used a orange marble effect base card and die cut Poppystamps Diamond Background from red card.  I cut the leaf using a Spellbinders die and inked the edges with red distress ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Joy Clair Coffee Lovers set.  Cute, or what??
