SANTA PAWS

Hello.
Despite most of my craft stuff being packed up, I've managed to make another couple of Christmas cards.
It's taking me twice as long though.
Trying to remember which box all the different supplies are in.


I'm still happy playing with these cute pups, which are coloured with Copics and
attached to the background with foam tape.

For the backgrounds I stamped and embossed the sentiment, and then added some distress ink. 
My 'snow' is a splattering of white, acrylic paint - which also ends up all over my hands and up the sleeves of my jumper!!

PUDDINGS

Hello.

I'm trying to get in some more card making before I have to pack up my craft room.
It looks like our two daughters, plus one son-in-law, 2 cats, and one dog are going to be staying with us for a while.
It's going to be a squeeze, but I am looking forward to having everyone at home.
Remind me I said that in a month's time :-o)

So, here's another couple of quick cards for the pile.


I used the cute Christmas puddings from Clearly Besotted and teamed them up with a simple mftstamps sentiment.
The pretty, red background came from a rummage through my card box. It's actually a valentine card blank (no idea of the make) that I die cut to fit,


I added lots of sparkly glamour dust to the puddings.
Hopefully you can make this out a little better in the photo below.

PUPPY LOVE

Hello.

Phew!
I FINALLY found time to get into my craft room today.
I was beginning to think I might have to BUY my Christmas cards.

So I'm happy I have another 3 for the pile.

I've kept them all nice and simple, and just had a play with some different backgrounds.

This first one uses distress inks for the background, splattered with white acrylic paint.


Next I used Copic markers.
For some reason I have NEVER used markers like this for a background - but it was easy to get them to blend and I like the result.


My last card uses a snowfall die on some blue cardstock.


All the pups, trees and parcels were die-cut, coloured with Copics and popped up on foam tape.
I added a touch of glamour dust in places (very sparkly irl)  and went a bit mad with a white gel pen.
