Stop Believing in Santa


Hello friends

I made some of these cards for a craft fair I was doing a couple of weeks ago. They all sold out before I managed to take a picture of them. So I made another one today so I could get it on the blog before Christmas.

 I really love this sentiment it is cute and oh so TRUE!! Ha :)

 This stamp set is called Christmas Brief from Unity.  I coloured and cut the pants and then added some glitter around the them and stuck them down with foam dots. Then I stamped the sentiment and added some silver stars. It was a really easy card to make.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and remember to keep believing!!

Hello My lovely Friends
I hope you are all well this Christmas season. I was cleaning my desk last night and found lots of stamps that I forgot I had. So I made this wee Noel card. They were buried under a mess on my desk. This was one of the new ones that I got a few weeks ago she is called Only Imagine. How cute is she?? I love her wee face and her huge big eyes. The Noel is from another stamp set called Silent Night.  So I put the them together to make a Christmas card.
I got some  new Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils last week the 36 set and I really love them. They were an early Christmas present from my Mum. They are so easy to work with and they travel really well which is another reason I wanted them.  I had the smaller set and I really like them a lot now I have lots of colours. So I used them to colour my card. I added some enamel accents to create the snow.  Then some clear glitter glue and finally a wee rhinestone star just to finish it all off. I really love how it turned out.
I want to wish all of my followers and readers a very happy Christmas when it comes to you. I may not be around until after Christmas so I wanted to make sure to wish you all well. I can't believe Christmas is next week!!! I have a few bits still to get and wrap but I am mostly done shopping. I am also collecting some crafty things to have a wee giveaway in the new year so  have a wee look out for that.
So on that note I will leave you with a photo I took of Glasgow my home town all decorated for Christmas.

Craft Stamper December

Hello Friends

I am back with a we reminder for you for this month's Craft Stamper Challenge. This month we want you to share your projects of the season. So we would love to see anything wintery or Christmassy   :) 

You have lots of time still to take part so if you get some time we would love it if you joined us this month.  There is a great prize of a gift certificate from Polkadoodles

 A £25 gift certificate to spend in their online shop.

Our second winner is our design winner picked by the design team. This winner will see their project in the magazine.

Now on to my card I used this wee hedgehog stamp from Unity called Kissmas Hedgie. This is super cute don't you think? Kissing hedgehogs :) I stamped it using archival ink and then heat embossed the Kiss-mass in red glitter embossing powder. Now I could not let a card got by this year without incorporating some tartan somewhere. Since I am a Scottish girl I had to get it in there somewhere. This was fabric I bought last year and I never got around to using. 

So I hope you get a chance to join in our challenge this month. I can't wait to see all of your lovely entries. 

Have a lovely day

So on to my project for this month. I made this Christmas card with this wee owl and the snowy scene. The owl stamp is from Unity called Decorate my Life. I used my Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils to colour it. Then added some enamel accents to create the snow. I love the way it turned out.
