Dolly December

Another pastel Christmas card from me – I’d forgotten just how much I love pink and grey together.  And super cute Dolly December from Whimsy Stamps was made for pink and grey!  I coloured her up with a combination of copic markers and pencils, sorry no list of colours today, I just grabbed pencils willy nilly to get the shades to match the paper.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Ticket Sentiments set, also from Whimsy Stamps, and the paper is First Edition Christmas Promise - this pad is sublime ♥


I love her hair, so pretty.


I think the fresh white flowers work so well with the pastel background.


Another Xmas card done Smile

Candle Light Mice

I seriously can’t get enough of the adorable mice from Di’s Digi Stamps.  This darling little image is called Candle Light.


I coloured the image with copic markers:
Mice: E43, 41, 40; E93, 000
Candle:  W3, 1, 0, 00; YR07, 31, 30,0000
Holly: BG99; G29, 24, 20; R59, 35, 24, 14, 00


I’m tyring to use some of my older dies that never see the light of day.  Such a shame that there are some beauties hidden at the back of the boxes.  The border die is a My Favourite Things (I think) and the circle die is Quickutz.


The paper is Find It Trading Jolly Holly from Noor Design, as is the Double Ruffle Trim.   The poinsettias are from Hobbycraft, a total bargain at £1 per pack!  The gems and twine are also from Hobbycraft, more bargains that fell into my basket.  The leaf die is by Rosy Owl and will be in stock at Noor Design soon!!  Watch this space Winking smile

Blue Christmas

I love blue and white for Christmas cards, always so fresh and pretty.  For this week’s Whimsy Stamps DT card I’ve used the sentiment from the Clearly Scripty Occasions stamp set, along with snowflakes from the Elegant Snowflakes die set.


I picked up this paper pad from The Range last week, it’s called Wonderful Christmas by Craft Sensations.


Before die cutting the ivy leaves (Marianne Design die) I painted a piece of white card with Platinum Starlights paint.  Oh my goodness, this paint is luscious.  The little glittery berries are part of a large leafy spray, also from The Range in the post Xmas sale last year.  And did you see that fab gold and white twine sneaked in there again?  I can’t leave this stuff alone lol.


The Scrapinec chipboard Baubles are a double layer set, I painted them with white acrylic before adhering them together then slathering on Distress Glitter.


I LOVE making Christmas cards, you can never use enough bling – I think I was a magpie in a former life lol.

Christmas Candy


I’m still working through the stuff that I have duplicates (and even triplicates!!) of, some are still in the packaging the order was delivered in!  I’m so bad, so so bad!

I have a spare Tim Holtz Idea-ology Holidays Past 12x12 paper pad to give away.  As always, just leave a comment and I’ll draw a winner in a few days.

In my backyard

It’s the last day of the October Whimsy Stamps release, so don’t forget to pop across to join in the fun over in the Whimsy Stamps and Inspirations Facebook group and hopefully win a prize.

I’ve used another Clearly set for today’s card, this one is called In my backyard.  Once again I’ve used that gorgeous Winter Wishes paper pad and matching Winter Wishes Enamel Dots, the colours are divine.   I layered up Double Scallop Layered Doily die behind the image.
